syndae - episode 182

Postby treibklang » Fri Jul 20, 2012 10:00 pm

In four weeks the unique Swimmingpool-Festival takes place in Berlin. And, yes, the concerts of that festival are played in a real pool. The host and main act of both days are Picture Palace music with their leader Thorsten Quaeschning. Quite a number of EM artists to be heard that day like Bernd Kistenmacher,MorPheuSz, Nattefrost, Stefan Erbe, and Battery Dead. I'll be there, and if you can, you should go, too. And as a little teaser, tonight's show starts with PPm and a track from their latest album. But there is more. Like Kikai with a track from his live concert at Raumzeit Festival 2012 from last month. Followed by Shivakult with a wonderful track from the Mind Plug 2nd Anniversary sampler. Also, introducing the new album by Nisus named Electronic Medication with a track excerpt. New, as well, Subtle Shift by Within Reason, the alter ego project by Gregory Kyryluk (Alpha Wave Movement). And tonight's closer will be The X-Structure with their current album Wild Places.

syndae - episode 183

Postby treibklang » Fri Jul 27, 2012 10:00 pm

Finally, a tiny bit of summer has arrived at my living place. Mild evenings with a beautiful, blue sky, only a few coulds in sight. And, of course, some very body relaxing soundwaves washing round myself, filling my brain with peace and easyness. Another one-flow show presenting chill and ambient music. We start our journey with S7ven's Native Space, which slowly draws us into silence. Followed by a sonic impression of the Highlands by Phillip Wilkerson. Afterwards, another greart track from the fine tonAtom sampler decAde, Gravity by Drifting in Silence. I mentioned the swimmingpool festival in Berlin before, MorPheuSz is one of the acts playing live in the bathhouse and Garden Gnomes and Goblins Part 9 sounds like made for laying at the pool. From the pool to the stars we go with Onewayness and then back in time to the Archaikum (Archean) with Walter Roos. Phobos will close this episode, where we have Part 1 of his Live on Earth album.

syndae - episode 184

Postby treibklang » Fri Aug 03, 2012 10:01 pm

In May this year, Michael Wilkes a.k.a. Yog-Sothoth won the newcomer prize at the Schallwelle electronic music awards. Part of the prize was the production of a CD, and the corresponding album *Prehistoric Dawn* is just out. I happily received the album and tonight's episode will feature two tracks of it right at the begining.
Up to a few weeks ago, the group Sankt Otten from Osnabrück was completely unknown to me. They are well established, though, and are one of the acts playing at the 5th Electronic Circus festival on September 22nd this year. Also two tracks to be heard, from their last year's album *Gottes Synthesizer* and their current CD *Sequenzer Liebe*.
Recently, I had a track of Wellenfeld from the MellowJet sampler on the show, now their new album *Endless Summer* is out, providing the real summer feeling (what the weather is still lacking to do).
And I have the final call for the Swimmingpool festival this week. Only 14 days to go, on August 17th the festival will take place in Berlin. I feature two of the event's acts tonight with Stefan Erbe's *Sounds of my Comfort'sone* and BatteryDead's *Sands of Deception*. Cool location, great line-up, two days worth going to Berlin.
Australis closes this edition with a fine track from their current, and free to download sampler *Interlude*.

syndae - episode 185

Postby treibklang » Fri Aug 10, 2012 10:00 pm

This seems one of the most low temperature summer of the last years, so let us at least get some warm music tracks by way of consolation. In the first two tracks we let Ivan Filin a.k.a. Simiram take us to The Lost, The Last. Then we take a short visit to Ishtar's Ombre before we head for Bing Satellites and their album Twilight Sessions Volume 10. Speaking of volume, Steve Roach and Dirk Serries, who found back together after 10 years, their Low Volume Music will quiet us down a bit, so we can enjoy a siesta. And from siesta to fiesta, we celebrate with Steve Barnes as Divine Matrix and his Atmospheric Variations. Several light years later, Miranda Shvangiradze wants to Talk to Me, and you will join in for some moments of luck. Right before we start for the finale with Steve Orchard's Undersail.

Postby treibklang » Fri Aug 24, 2012 11:00 pm

Only one month to go before the Electronic Circus opens their curtains again for the show that never ends. One of the magnificent acts entering the stage in Gütersloh will be VoLt, who are Steve Smith and Michael Shipway. On tonights show, Michael is with me giving some insight in his musical life and work and of course we will have plenty music of him, VoLt and Lamp, his youngest collaboration with Garth Jones.

syndae - episode 187

Postby treibklang » Fri Aug 31, 2012 10:00 pm

Events, events, events. The next month is stuffed with events in electronic music, three of which I have some appetizers for on tonight's episode. Last week we had the Michael Shipway special in sight of his appearance with Steve Smith at the Electronic Circus. Another collaboration will be playing in Gütersloh for the first time: Ian Boddy and Erik Wøllo. Unfortunately, I have no material of their set (yet), but just right these days, Erik released a brand new solo album which you will get a double right at the beginning of tonight's show. You shouldn't miss the Circus this year, plenty of great acts and there are still quite a bunch of tickets left. So do not hesitate and plan your trip to Gütersloh on September 22nd.
Earlier in September, on Friday 14th, you can experience TMA with Martinson and others at the Planetarium of Recklinghausen. To the time of this edition of syndae, I think, some tickets are still available. And you can actually do a double feature, as there is another very interesting show at the Planetarium of Bochum on Saturday 15th with moonbooter and Remy. One track of each, of course, on tonight's show, a very new one by moonbooter and an excerpt by Remy from recordings done for that event.
Also starting in September, Bernhard Wöstheinrich does a tour in the USA again. From September 22nd to 30th you can meet or listen to him live on stage. And he will be on tour together with guitarist Tim Motzer.
In between all these event-releated music, you get to hear from a fresh album by LooneyJetman, who is new to syndae. The music on this release simply made me happy, so I have a triple for you of that album.
Enjoy the show, have a great time, take care, and good night.

syndae - episode 188

Postby treibklang » Fri Sep 07, 2012 10:00 pm

Last week, I had lots of coming event teasers. Now, tonight it's time to get some recent releases on air. And we are into dub, groove, club like music, so best to take place for a rather relaxing and chilling session, close to one hour of fine electronica tracks. For once, I have a CC double sampler from section27 netlabel. It's named Section v3.0, and four of the many tracks are on this edition presenting to you Deltason & Konuvvi, Illocanblo, Swin Deorin, and YoMyEx. Also recently released, Regnlxprss by Passive Defence. Another CC album from the great Kreislauf netlabel. More free stuff comes from the Rec72 label, namely Always now never after by Orbique, a really cool album there.
Two more artists on the playlist, both with commercial releases. First, I have The Cosmic Garden's current album Sun Secrets. And then there is Giuliano Rodrigues, where I have two tracks, one each of the albums Apogue and Red Sky, respectively.

syndae - episode 189

Postby treibklang » Fri Sep 14, 2012 10:00 pm

Actually, a date much more important than the world's destruction as the Maya are alleged to have said: the Electronic Circus is close. One week to go, on September 22nd! Come and meet in Gütersloh, where you will experience fantastic live concerts, like from the band first on tonight's show: Sankt Otten with Sequencer Liebe.
Many artists have announced their visit to the Circus, like Robert Schroeder, Michael Mertens (Propaganda), and Bodo Staiger (Rheingold). Further, it is very likely that Winfrid Trenkler will be there and also Rainer Sauer, both anchormen of famous radio shows on electronic music. Another well reknown guest will be Bernd Kistenmacher, who also has some live appearances later on in October, being the main act at E-Live. We have an excerpt from his re-released Head Visions on tonight's show.
Talking about E-Live, which is over a month ahead on October 27st, Fanger & Schönwälder will have a special appearance at the Grand Café. And, of course, a nice track on this edition from Stromschlag.
I do not know about any live events of the following artist, but he just put out a marvellous album. It's UK's very own Data Rebel who set Dreams for an Abstract Mind to music. Another fresh addition to syndae is Bertrand Loreau from France, where we have two tracks of his current album Journey through the past. Fine french electronic music not being jarreish.
More fresh sounds come from Fascinating Earthbound Objects, a USA based artist, and his latest compositional work And so the game has gone. And finally, we have Andreas Baaden with his just released album Polarlicht.
Hope, you will enjoy tonight's tracks as much as I did. Take care.

syndae - episode 190

Postby treibklang » Thu Sep 20, 2012 10:00 pm

One day early, as I'll be on the road tomorrow evening, we'll be going into darker material tonight, drifting somewhere in between ambient and industrial electronica. So it is time to let your mind take a grip on softer and harsher waves, floating or backed by creaking sounds and drifting beats.
We start out smoothly with Light and Shadow by Janne Hanhisuanto. Calmly followed by Incentive's RERA pushing us a bit towards the end, which leads right into some more technical world by Rasul Mono from his Silhouettes. Afterwards, The Nikki Grace Experience puts some experimental thrill to it. We'll be cought by the Jarguna and his dark and thriving movements from Waiting for a Call from the Unknown. Just to be challenged by some driving technology from Hanetration's Torn Heat. And it is Ross Baker with his Photografic Reflection soothing us with dark and peaceful soundwaves, seamlessly floating into the Genuine Machina by Ivan Black, which in the end turns out to push us forward. Only, to even out with Bengalfuel's Neely.
Have a great time and take care.

syndae - episode 191

Postby treibklang » Fri Sep 28, 2012 10:00 pm

After the show is before the show, at least there are more nice shows coming up in October. And, as you know, I love teasing you. But before that, I would like to introduce you to a quartett, one fourth I got to know at the Electronic Circus last weekend. They are Erren, Fleißig, Schöttler and Steffen who took a week off in Ouddorp (NL) to simple record some music. And it got really well. Fine and modern Berlin School on Ouddorp Takes.
For the next event, well, there are a handful of tickets left. So, if you're quick, you get to hear very nice electronic music at the Radio Happy Event on October 6th. For example, by Rainbow Serpent and BatteryDead, where I have tracks from 8th Nerv and Sands of Deception, respectively.
The next major EM event, of course, is E-Live on October 27th in Oirschot. Two of their live acts on tonight's show: Gert Emmens and Ruud Heij, with a track from their album Blind Watchers of a Vanishing Night, and Bernd Kistenmacher, with one song from his Head-Visions. And, btw., Bernd will also be live on stage at November 24th, together with Din-A-Testbild.
Make sure you visit at least on of the coming events, as there is more to electronic music than what you get from your headphones.
Enjoy your weekend!

Are you missing me moderating the show? Or are you rather enjoying the continuous mix, syndae currently presents? Please, let me know, add a comment to this post or send me an e-mail. I might set up a poll, if that helps decide on the future style of the show.
On tonight's episode, you will get a bunch of music from new releases. Experience your first encounter with Alien Voices in cooperation with Steve Schroyder who recently started distributing their album Qigong Dancing, which gives you a real extra terrestrial feeling with moving beats.
There are re-releases on the grill at SynGate by Syndromeda, like we present one of the track of 2006th Attack! If you need a Stressless Life, this you get by Klangwald.
The duo Northcore, consisting of australian Carl and british Jana, have just released their album Desatero, which is quite some artwork of electronic music. And we've got nice tracks of them. More great news, the brand new moonbooter CD Cosmophonica is out, having the real drive in it.
Finally, there is Glenn Main with tracks from Ripples. And this is to remind you of E-Live, which only is three weeks ahead, featuring not only Glenn Main, but Gert Emmens & Ruud Heij, as well as Bernd Kistenmacher. And some special appearances included, like Space Art. E-Live in Oirschot on October 27th.
Please, enjoy the show and don't forget to get back to me regarding voice over or not. Thanks. Good night. Take care.

The voice is back, at least on the show. Thanks for the feedback, which was quite unanimous. So, more talking, less writing. Tonight's show is a mix of new and recent releases by well known and new artists. No special musical theme, but nevertheless it got a bit reflective in its mood. I hope you will enjoy fantastic tracks by Bernd Kistenmacher, Parallel Worlds & Dave Bessell, Paul Ellis, Remember Green, and Subterrestrial.

Music for quieter nights on this episode, just what one needs to leave a busy week behind. Although ambient, the tracks of tonight's show will keep your mind in motion changing between lighter spacy music and darker soundscapes. On the playlist tonight are Alexander Chereshnev, Altus, Bruno Sanfilippo, Craig Padilla and Zero Ohms, Pete Farn, and Phobos.

Happy to have you return to syndae. While I had a wonderful vacation, quite a bunch of new albums piled up, ready to be brought to your ears. On tonight's show, I have the pleasure to introduce five of them, each of which is really magnificent in its own way. Best to pick your phones, lean back, and enjoy 30 minutes of the finest music by David Wright, Darshan Ambient, Schiller, Stefan Erbe, and W.O.S.P.
