We are back in time. Yes! Well, not in the past, in the present still. But tonight's the night, Friday night. Spot on to find the latest edition of syndae. And we start into the new year with hot new stuff as well. Also, the calendar for ambient and electronic music events is already quite full, really promising and busy year 2017 will be. I hope you will enjoy syndae, too, as I am happy to continue serving diverse and exciting music for you. Like the tracks of this show, with music by David Wright & Carys (Prophecy), Narcose (Panda Eyes), Min-Y-Llan (Sectioned v6.0), Marque and Reprisal and Nomadic Jurassic (Fields), and Stefan Erbe (The Freedom of Movement).

The fun is on:

syndae - episode 373

Postby treibklang » Fri Jan 20, 2017 8:00 pm

It's cool man! Oh, actually, it is. Somewhat below zero Celsius. Not a quantum of snow at my place, though, rather sunshine and blue sky. So, it's still cool, as is the music for tonight's show. There are still several new releases blooming at his time of year. But as it happened I also like to look back, far back... or not so far? It's a greeting from the year 2000 I have for you on tonight's show. And, as mentioned, some new and coming stuff, too. Have a wonderful evening with tracks by Jim Ottaway (Timeless e-Motion), Frank Specht (Sebastian im Traum), Richard Devine (Fields), Steve Roach (Spiral Revelation), 4T Thieves (Details), and Sequential Dreams (The Exodus Wave).

syndae - episode 374

Postby treibklang » Fri Jan 27, 2017 8:00 pm

Putting up a podcast on music is not really a complex issue. One simply listens to several dozens of releases and tracks, picks those which seem interesting to your listeners, looks up some information on and about the artists, and compiles a show of 30 minutes length. Well, one must accept that not all releases fit to the show, some may really hurt ones ears or mind, which may be a matter of taste and use as well. So the actual issue is that it takes quite some time to find music that makes an edition worth listening. Some of them become wonderful for the individual listener, some not so much. I hope you will find tonight's show worth listening, because I always do and especially tonight. Brand new tracks and some tracks I just got aware of. A great mix to my ears, but decide for yourself. And I promise, it will be totally different in sound next time, and again. If you read all this text, thank you! Put on your headphones or start your stereo and listen to these fantastic tracks by moonbooter (Schwarzmond), Risingson (Predestination), Armen Miran & Hraach, In Vitro (El Hombre Libre), Edvoo Mood (Microscopic / Compilation), and Bicho Raro (The Path / Compilation).

Postby treibklang » Fri Feb 03, 2017 8:00 pm

Think out of the box, that's one often repeated Creed. So tonight comes some music out of the box, as the artists on this edition don't let boundaries of genres stop them. And rightly so. I am often looking for ideas and sounds which broaden my imagination. I bet, I am still to conservative about it, but I hope you find some inspiration in these tracks as well. On the playlist are Bogtrotter (Immersion), Nearfield (G5), Abjective (Balance me), Noston (Solve Et Goacula), WaterMelonDead (The Globe), and Nunun (Inner).

Postby treibklang » Fri Feb 10, 2017 8:00 pm

Holy banana. I am not sure what the heck came over me this week, which actually was quite slow. But maybe that's the reason, as when things get rather boring in life one needs some speed to enjoy the weekend. Well, no, not going on drugs, but turning on the volume to let the beat in. And beats you get with tracks by Atezu (Bootlegs), Groot (Grootesque), Xamanist (7), Negans (Danse Macabre), S0ca & Dreaddean (Microscopic), Open Source (Highly Motivated to Rock You).

syndae - episode 377

Postby treibklang » Fri Feb 17, 2017 8:00 pm

So there I stood at the traffic light, which of course just had to jump to red when I closed up. One of those lucky days again. And it's not only the crossing traffic that passed by, which already takes long enough, but of course there is the tram approaching the crossing. Sorry, no, not only one, but one from each direction. And guess who is still waiting for green lights? What do you do, staring at the stop light? Well, I took a little trip in my mind, let the business memory fade and looked forward for the weekend. Oh my, it would have been such a relaxing and joyful moment, if those pesky cars behind me didn't start honking. Yeah, all right, green lights. So I hope you will have a more peace when listening to tonight's tracks by Centrozoon (217 XII), Forrest Fang (Following the Ether Sun), Chris Russel (Spectra), Ashot Danielyan & Lutz Thuns (Friends of Ambient 19), Carey Moore (Life is Ugly. Make Pretty Art.), and Talkingmakesnosense (We are Invisible Now Vol. 3).

syndae - episode 378

Postby treibklang » Fri Mar 03, 2017 8:00 pm

Well, I try to have a different style of music on syndae each week with tracks that are similar in mood, but still quite different in sound and kind. Simply because I like it that way. What type of music listener are you? Mix it up how it comes along? Trying to fit it to your mood or its opposite? Listening to common radio shows, I usually get bored or annoyed of their everlasting rotation of the same over and over again. So, yes, I like diversity and similarity equally, but not stupid repeatology. There's the saying of Don't repeat yourself, which I quite follow, so no track finds it way twice to the show. Most times. And tonight you will get mainly new stuff, too. Some albums we already had, most we did not. And each of them unique and very harmonic. Have half an hour of joyful chilling listening pleasure with Johan Agebjörn & Mikael Ögren (We Never Came to the White Sea), David Wright & Carys (Prophecy), Der Waldläufer (Fluidum), Alkor (Where Tomorrow Ends), moonbooter (Schwarzmond), and Cosmic Trigger (Escape from Chapel Perilous).

Much room to rest on:

syndae - episode 379

Postby treibklang » Fri Mar 10, 2017 8:00 pm

Have you ever been to New York? To me, it's an interesting town to visit and look around for a while, but definitely too crowded and too busy for my likings. Last time I've been there right after the floodings, so even Liberty was closed and some parts of the subway did not run properly. And there are people everywhere. And cars. And taxis. And those sightseeing buses with open roof tops, which are really, really chilly at night, I tell you. Ok, it was a bit stupid to visit in Winter, and because of heavy snow fall our flight home was cancelled, too. Not so good, especially when running out of underwear. Well, at least it got quieter when everything was covered in white. Less traffic. Less people on the road. And some additional time off. Ok, enough of me burbling. Enjoy a decent chilly time yourself with cool tracks by Orphic (Purple), Wellenfeld (Sunshine), MilKos (Zumba), David Call (Midnight Radio Compilation 79), Flembaz (Coice & Foice), and Max Cavalerra (Techno Mode).

syndae - episode 380

Postby treibklang » Fri Mar 17, 2017 8:00 pm

There aren't that many labels in electronic music having constant high quality output over the years. One of them is the German label MellowJet Records, run by a fantastic musician himself, Bernd Scholl. This year they are celebrating their 10th anniversary, and to me it feels like it was yesterday when I discovered the very young and fresh distributor from the Eifel. MellowJet provided many joyful hours to me, and surely to many of you, too. And it is a great occasion to have some questions ready and asked to the head of the label. Exactly. Tonight I have for you the first of a two part special on MellowJet Records featuring an interview with Bernd Scholl. And, of oourse, lots of music of the label, which tonight is by moonbooter (Under Control), Harald Grosskopf (Synthesist 2010), and Uwe Reckzeh, Wellenfeld as well as Magic Dimension (Electronic Music Compilation 9).

Postby treibklang » Fri Mar 24, 2017 8:00 pm

Where was I? Oh, yes, in midth of the interview with Bernd Scholl. As promised, tonight you will get the second part of questions answered by the head of MellowJet Records. Which reminds me of the question, I forgot to ask: What "MellowJet" means. So, I can only guess it could be a "gentle, but forceful breeze", whatever that could be. Hm, at least, most of their music is very "mellowdic" (Sorry for that one). Ok, so what will you get in part 2? More about what it needs to have your music released with the label, and what to expect from Bernd in that matter. And, of course, more of the fantastic artists and music being released on MellowJet, this time with tracks by Erez Yaary, Visible Breath, future_former, BatteryDead, and moonbooter himself.

Postby treibklang » Fri Mar 31, 2017 7:00 pm

Sometimes, life is stuffed with various events compressed into the shortness of a week. And at the end, I am grateful for each minute I have for taking myself back and relax. Well, thirty minutes do quite well in that regard, and that is what you get tonight. A wonderful mix of new and older tracks, looking forward, looking back. Oh, and then there are the upcoming events run by Stephan Kaske aka Mythos. You will find the dates and locations below, and a nice teaser in the show. Ok, best to listen for yourself, so have fun with tracks by Chris Gate (In and Out), Erik Seifert (Aotearoa), Cialyn (Off Season), FUS. (Physical Feeling), Assembled Minds (The Restless Field), and Mythos (Jules Vernes. Around the World in 80 Minutes).

syndae - episode 383

Postby treibklang » Fri Apr 07, 2017 7:00 pm

What I like a lot about ambient music is its great source for images brought to my mind. Usually, this style of music is meant to run in the background, to accompany your being and rather not disturb whatever you do. But actually, it often is really cool and worth listen to very closely and try to detect the sometimes delicate variations and movements in sound. The advice to listen closely definitely applies to tonight's edition, as there always is beauty inside the featured tracks, either clearly and tangible or rather hidden in the details. Best to listen to with headphones, enjoy the tracks by Between Interval (Legacy), Kevin Lyons (Dancers at the End of Time), Lorenzo Montanà (Phase IX), Paul Kwitek, Chris Russell (Labyrinth), Cloudwalk (Forgotten World).

syndae - episode 384

Postby treibklang » Fri Apr 14, 2017 7:00 pm

In several regions people start looking for their eggs these days, often painted in various colours and hidden at the most awkward places. As a variant, left in natural white to hide them in snow. However, you do not need to start searching as with this edition you already found some gems to please your listening desires. Plain in the open and obviously inheriting from traditional electronic, and either timeless or more modern in style. Also, there are several very interesting events coming up, where you will find Seifert & Steinbüchel (Softlock), Baltes & Erbe (Electric Garden), and Arcane (Tomorrow's Wasteland). But we don't stop there, as we have also really cool new music by Erik Wøllo (Different Spaces), Sequential Dreams (The Infinite Divide), and Eagle (Midnight Raadio Compilation 82).

syndae - episode 385

Postby treibklang » Fri Apr 21, 2017 7:00 pm

So there I was at the garage, waiting for my car being done. A mandatory check up I have to have done every two years. And the mechanic came back with the news that one tire runs bald. I am surely not someone driving a hot wheel. I like it smooth and steady, like the music playlist I choose for longer trips. Well, so I have to get new tires for the car, but this also seals the fate for tonight's edition. Yep, we'll have it smooth and steady. Not too soft, of course, don't want to fall asleep on tour. So lean back and enjoy a wonderful musical trip with Paul Kwitek (Qualia), SineRider (Stay Home), Melorman (Somewhere, Someday), Vanderson (Beyond Time Structure), Jim Black (The Heat), and s_ence feat. snc (See).

So this is the week of breaking headphones. First, my listening headphone started to crackle, it's an open Beyerdynamics DT990 which I have for about 15 years. And I thought, well, cannot blame them for slowly giving up. I always have a second one. Well, I had. As right this week my closed-back AKG, which I use for mixing and recording, simply broke on one side. Blimey! So now I am using a portable on-ear headphone for listening and recording. Wonder, what that will do to the show. But, hey, you are here for the music, and I totally have cool stuff for you on the playlist. Brand new releases as well as some that definitely are worth checking out. Fantastic tracks, too, one this new edition, which are by Pyramaxx (Move), Blinky Blinky Computerband (Fractured Sign), Wellenfeld (Ten), Baltes & Erbe (Electric Garden), aAirial (Music for Sunny Days), and Saafi Brothers (The Quality of Being One: Remixes).
