HALT! Und: GO

Dear All! I've decided to dedicate the next fours weeks to nothing but songwriting. This implies less (=> zero, to be more precise) DJing or whatsoever external events. In order to get shit done (I'm aiming at a minimum of 5 tracks) I left my beloved Bundeshauptdorf Berlin for a pile of sand, surrounded by nothing. I feel that the unreal beauty will trigger a shitload of ideas. To stay up to date, feel invited to check out my Instagram and Facebook-Channels. And, yeah: There's different content on each of the channels ;-)

Track: Firepond

Certainly one of those tracks that started with a strong idea. But that that strong idea then got watered down in the course of the mix. "But...why?" you might ask? Well, because it became too fancy. I simply f***** it up. "But ... why?" Because it denied what it was: A blunt, loud and direct attack that only can be consumed in a short period of time. So I boiled things down again ... and this is how "Firepond" become my so far shortest and most aggressive tune. I'm happy to repeat myself here: My tunes are like a swinging pendulum: Moving from Easy Listening and Electronica to Industrial and Techno ... and back.
As usual, you can download Firepond for free at Bandcamp or you simply stream it via Spotify.

Music

Track: Loyat

The track's title "Loyat" is a blunt simplyfication of the French word "l'oyat" - which translates to beach grass. Which grows on dunes. And this is where I wrote this tune: Sitting on a dune, surrounded by oyat. Hence: the name!
You can download this piano-electronica-ish tune for free on Bandcamp and stream it on Spotify. It's even available on Youtube.

Music

Track: Niemand is Nobody is Ne Personne

You know those places where tranquility kicks in an a certain level of liberating solitude is flowing? Well, I went to one of those places where nobody (in french: ne personne) is and soundtracked my thoughts. You can download it for free on Bandcamp and stream it on Spotify. It's even available on Youtube.

Music

Track: Leave Space

The perfect setting for this track: Wandering through the streets of Berlin at night. With a beer in your hand. You'll find it on Spotify. You can download it for free on Bandcamp. It's for the more visual people, it's even on Youtube, but behold: It ain't a proper "Video" - it's a still of the picture you see below :).

Event Creation: Traurig Und Untanzbar

My mind never stops spinning. If it's not about making music or DJing, I ponder on event concepts. The latest edition to this restlessness was "Traurig Und Untanzbar" - one of the biggest events I've created so far. Four awesome live-acts, taking the audience on a trip from melancholia to madness in just four live-concerts. Eric Carl kicked things off with his Dronescapes and touching visuals. Field Rotation then took over, leading us into the fields of Neo Classical Music. Subheim showcased what true Dark Ambient Music is: Soundscapes that go under your skin - spiced up with tensed percussion. Last but not least, Monolog // Mads Lindgren lit his explosives. Since I hosted the event, I decided not to DJ. I was just there and enjoyed the show.

Traurig Und Untanzbar Vol.2 will take place on Sept. 14th, 2018.
Traurig Und Untanzbar Vol. 3 is currently being planned.



Music

Track: Out Here

What your soul sings to you at 4 o'clock in the morning whilst your body is being ripped apart by kick and bass. "Out Here" premiered in my Radio FG Underground Paris DJ-Set "Raison D'Être" which you find a few scolls below. You can download the track for free at Bandcamp.

Music

Event Creation: ∆ - The DELTA Tunes

The term "∆-Tunes" (say: DELTA-Tunes) perfectly describes the music I make and love to listen to: It is the difference between what you're wishing for vs. what you get. Mathematically spoken, the ∆ (say: DELTA) was a thing that has always inspired me the most. Happiness and fulfillment have never been sources of creativity to me. Instead, failing (better and quicker) and doubts have always been the path for growth and progress. This is why I decided to celebrate this state of unrest by focusing on music that perfectly depicts and triggers what it means to feel: ∆.

Music

DJ-Set: Raison D’Être

Quite a nice set. It premiered on Radio FG Underground Paris and mirrors my love for the more melancholic sides of techno - including my own track Out Here.

Music

DJ-Set: How and Why

You feel tempting questions about your life and the way things are going? Crank up this set, lean back and let the music answer your questions!

Music

Track: Industrial et Tendresse

Contradiction causes tension. And so does this track: It unfolds into an aggressive but tender vortex of melodies and rhythm. You can download the track for free via Bandcamp. Of course, you'll also find it on Spotify.

Music

Event Creation: Float With Depeche Mode

I make music, but I also make events. The idea for "Float With Depeche Mode" was born in late 2016 and arised from my desire to listen to Depeche Mode's B-Sides, rares and lives all night long in an environment that fits the less dancefloor-like music. The nice people from Liquidrom Berlin - a thermal bath and my favorite place to drop these tunes - said "yes".

The pitch goes like this: "Float with Depeche Mode" Ein Abend im Liquidrom gehört ganz den Balladen, Instrumentals, Bare Versions und B-Sides unserer Helden Martin L. Gore, Dave Gahan und Andy Fletcher. Gerahmt von Ausflügen in beatlose - aber nicht minder intensive Wave-, Synthpop-, Industrial- und Spoken-Word-Tracks ist dieses einzigartige Event ein Muss für Liebhaber der düsteren, untanzbaren Elektronik. Ever since this very first "Float With Depeche Mode", the event returns every ten (or so) weeks. To find more about the next event, check out the event-section for upcoming events.

Music

Track: Feeling Triggered

Feeling Triggered actually is the original version to the latter issued "Leave Space". Both versions share my love for melodic hooks - but they're also different. Feel free to check out both. Feeling Triggered is available as a free download on Bandcamp.

Music

Track: Lovetrack

A sweet and sunny groove. Seems to me like the evolved version of my Sundowner a few scrollls below what you're reading right now. Obviously made with sunshine on my mind. Feel free to download it for free at Bandcamp or simply stream it via Spotify.

Music

Track: Chambre 24

A rather joyful, almost trancy tune, innit? As usual, I invite you to get your free Bandcamp download via or listen to it on repeat via Spotify below :).

Music

Track: Bad Habit

What are your bad habits?

Music

Track: Gin Tonic

I love Gin Tonic - and Gin Tonic loves me. So we made a tune. Later, the fine guys from Trndmsk joined us and we had a chat about the floorstarter-track - check out the interview-section. Get your free version of Gin Tonic here.

Music

Track: I Score

Though the mainstream's love for Synth-Pop has ended decades ago, I still enjoy making those tunes. This one makes quite a good score for an 80’s crime series, I feel.

Music

Track: Interlude

The track's title pretty much says it all: A swift but beautiful idea.

Music

Track: Herrenhaus Eisenstein

A tune back from my sandbox-days. It was created in a time where I enjoyed experimenting instead of writing in dedicated music genres.

Music

Track: Sundowner

You guys know those special summer evenings? When you've friends coming over, everybody's chilling at the pool and is having a good time? This is THE soundtrack for those special sundowner moments.

Music

Track: About Off

My farewell track for ye olde "Hafen 2" in Offenbach. This former engine house in the industrial harbour-area was and is an emotionally charged spot to me - and it was demolished for the sake of expensive new penthouses. I was there when the last walls were torn down. I took a piece of wall home with me and placed it next to my gear. It's there to remind me of where I come from. As usual, you can download the track for free.

Music

Track: Yours Sincerely

My very first track (that I actually finished). Listening to it nowadays is kind of strange: Production-wise, I'd change a lot of things. On the other hand: Its melody and sounds are pure gut feeling - and it's awesome! Since I didn't give a damn about music theory back then, I was very creative but also bumped into production issues over and over again. Anyways, the track appeared on the DJ-Mag Germany compilation and you can download my track for free here.
