syndae - episode 460

Today I watched a vlog on self publishing. While it was about novels I quite see some parallels to music to be heard on syndae. Some of which is released via a label and others by the artist on his or her own. The vlog did not favour one over the other as both have their benefits and issues. As with novels, self publishing in music does imply a lot of work to be done by yourself, which is usually done by a label. Be it cover design or distribution as well as advertising. On one hand, these tasks steal quite some of an artist's time maybe better spent on composing. On the other hand you can decide everything on your own and quite surely will raise your expertise in a wider field of areas. On my show, I usually have a mix of both, self published and label published music. If you can hear a difference in quality, let me know, because I can't most of the time. So, however published or distributed, enjoy tonight's excellent tracks by Roberto Sass (Ancient Wonders), Stefan Erbe (Reflect), Menzman & Friends (Insights), Curious Inversions (Spire), Space Station (Infinity), and Stan Dart.

As a matter of fact it's a bout 10 to 16 C these days, not the weather to expect for this season in this region. But when we are at it, let's bring some summer feeling to us in form of chilling music. Funny though, as the chill is what the temperatures outside should be. In the end, it's all very fitting. More than that, this will be the last edition of syndae for 2018, of course having great electronic music on board, some tracks I missed out in autumn and brand new music as well. I hope you will have a wonderful festive time these days. And if you need some fitting music, well, I prefer the sound of tonight's syndae edition, but there also are the christmas specials from back in the days, which you will find in the arhives at syndae.de. For me, this is the true sound of these days, given to us as tracks by Pan Electric (Step Out), Abraham Carmona (Ibiza), Meesha (Trip to Mars), Andy Pickford (Objects & Expressions III), alucidnation (Paracosmic), and Psyonysus (Interbeing).

So our planet did it and completed another round through space orbiting that bright star in midth of the solar system. And I am quite curious what's up for the next full circle (or rather ellipse). What surely is up is a series of podcast editions of syndae. And I am excited to present more magnificent ambient and electronic music to you all. If I would do any resolution (which I don't), it's to not stop promoting all these great artists waiting to be heard. Starting out tonight with an exciting selection of such artists and tracks of their latest releases, who are Smooth Genestar (Rétrospectif), Mark Dorricott & Stan Dart (Seaside), GreatOwl (Lilia Sin Mi), Sephira (The Master Work), Globular (The Context), and F.I.E.L.D.Y (Tree of Life).

Something I really did not miss during vacation is the ride to and from work. It's nothing spectacular, really, but I am always amazed how people seem so in a hurry. Changing lanes like chords in a rock song, speeding and taking over to gain another four metres to the "combatant" drivers. Only to later meet up at the next traffic light. With all this hectic world outside, time and again it is nice to dive into something peaceful. Like the ambient tracks which are on tonight's playlist by Seifert & Steinbüchel (Abandoned Places), NoizeFilter (Absolute Zero), Erik Wøllo (Infinite Moments), DesuExSounds (Soundsphere 9 / Compilation), Adeptus Mechanicus (In an Open Field), and Kryshe (Hauch).

Snow! Well, kind of. Actually, not really, maybe less then 1 cm of white powder that covered the area this week. But, of course, people were eager to shovel it away. Ugh, how could this happen? Snow. In winter! Lucky me for having a garage. No need to scratch the windows. It's still cold and the air-conditioner needs its time. And a weather to drive carefully. Not because of the itsy bitsy layer of snow, but because of the overy careful drivers on the road. Good to have some nice music in the player, like tracks by Alphaform (Escapism), Menzman & Friends (Insights), Arpegiator (The Polar Response), and MTA Lab (Autumn).

More snow! And this tie it was my wife and I who had to do the shovelling. It was by far not as bad as in the US, neither in amount nor temperature, but cold enough to make you shovel faster. Worse than handling the shovel is the public service being late, so one has to slide the roads instead of driving. And, of course, it's all the other drivers who can't drive a car in such weather, he he. These are the days one is really happy coming to a warm and pleasant home. And I hope you will feel the same with tonight's episode, featuring hoely tracks by Cat Friendly (Mirrors of the Sun), Solace Road (Solace Road), Mark Dorricott & Stan Dart (Seaside), Psyonysus (Interbeing), Andy Pickford (Objects & Expressions 3), and Spatialize (Beyond the Radar).

The nice thing about running a podcast on your own is that it's me alone deciding upon what tracks to play on the show. And I am quite sure you listeners like to check out about boundaries, not so common music, sometimes not even pleasant to listen to in the first moment. Well, tonight's such a night, although i can assure you no being to harsh in my choices. Actually, I quite liked all the albums you will hear about. They broaden my listening habits, may put me out of my comfort zone for a moment, but on the other hand surprise me with new details in sounds. I hope you will enjoy the music as well having tracks by Massimo Discepoli (The Right Place on the Wrong Map), DDO (Sins, Prays & Self-Punishment), Sami Konzo (Kitchen), Tacit Blue (Abandon), aAirial (Wanderings), and TT-ram & Lutz Thuns (Delusion).

Relaxed but not too quiet, that's the motto for tonight. This was one exciting week, and for the weekend, I need to gear down a bit. Not too much, of course, not to oversleep all days to monday. It's about the right mix of hot and cool, of speed and serenity, and I think this one will do very well. How do you quieten after a busy week? Music? Walking? Reading? Let me know by mail, as comment on facebook or on mixcloud. To me, these tracks do the trick tonight Barby (Anaconda), The Dream Makers (Vanishing Waves), Jason Rice (Escapism), Spatialize (Beyond the Radar), Pandacetamol vs 4T Thieves (Dot), Easily Embarrassed (Cosmic Duality).

There we are, another week has taken it's way to the past. And what a week it was starting with a brand new challenge at work and some cool musical stuff as well. Which makes me aware it is good time to find a counterpoint in compiling tracks for this edition. And while life turns out to be quite progressive lately, we go back to the future with some traditional EM inspired modern pieces. And of course, you will get them in quite some extensive lengths, if available. So best to tune in right now to have a wonderful evening with Craig Padilla & Marvin Allen (Toward the Horizon), Arpegiator (Finding Balance), TM Solver (Delay Line), and Ebia (Transmission).

Well, I think this was the warmest end of February week I've ever had in my life. I know, it may be ludicrus for southern hemisphere people, but 21C is not normal for this time of year where I live. And even hotter is the music that comes in these days. Excellent and outstanding electronic music being published, some of which is on tonight's show. And this is kind of the best thing in my view running this podcast: getting to hear this great music and being able to share it with you. Well, before I babble to much, better to tune into the show and listen to the fantastic tracks by d'Voxx (Télégraphe), Stefan Erbe (Reflect+), Soundstrokes (Soundstrokes), Harald Nies (Fractal), Pan Electric (Step Out), and Kevin Keller (Ice Worlds).

And here I have a new ambient edition! Very interesting new artists on this one, again, serving various flavours of this musical genre. Interesting enough that it somewhat started out as environmental music (actually called "furniture music" in its very early days). And despite many rumors, it's not only meant to run in the background but may be listened to consciously. Well, in the end it's up to you whether you like to have it accompany you or take your full attention. Have your choice with the tracks by Luis Mielich (Koyomi Outtakes), Carbon Entity (Within the Cosmic Void), Forrest Fang (The Fata Morgana Dream), Julien Ross (Retrospective), and Troy Ramos (Sound Space).

Since about two weeks the weather is quite pounding in my area, accompanied by quite some rain. Additionally, our dihswasher is doing a constant rhythm one could dance to. Clearly, two forcing signs to have some more beats on the show. And here we go with danceable tracks that may as well be played in a disco or party. It's been a while to visit these more popular region of electronic music, but nevertheless a very interesting one when listening to the details. Have some time off and enjoy the tracks by RCDO (Dawnlights), Lampé (Between the Worlds), Hardcore Buddhist (Altered Perceptions Vol. 1), Sebon (Featuring the Advocates), Fluffy Inside (Fluffy Inside), Kalumet (Kahnua).

There are quite some interesting topics in European politics, be it whether or how or not Great Britain leaves the EU, about young people going on the streets for better climate treatment, and about changes in copyright regulations. All quite heavy topics and sometimes it feels overwhelming to try to follow all the pro and contra and propaganda that tries to worsen the situation for common poeple. If you need a short rest to center yourself, tonight's tracks might help. It's a nice and chilly playlist with Time Away (Modern Wonders / Compilation), Stefan Erbe (Reflect+), Schiller (Morgenstund), Zoungla (There Will Be Dub), Biodiode (Cosmic Voyager Vol. 1), Advanced Suite (Cosmic Duality / Compilation).

So they recently presented a really big drone that is meant to become a flying taxi. Four giant rotors and a wagon below. Drones seem to be quite popular these days, hovering in the air with a camera attached to record videos or take photos. Or for current thriller movies as surveillance and weapon systems. Well, back to the taxi thingy, the drawback of this drone was that it couldn't actually fly. And the presenters said that it didn't matter. Well, I wonder what else matters for a drone if it is not flying? But maybe the music of tonight's edition will make you fly or at least lift off. It comes with fabuloues tracks by Baaden & Cremer (Aufbruch), Schiller (Morgenstund), Ebia (Transmission), Colin Rayment (FRB), and Computerchemist (Volcan Dreams).

We're in April, and syndae is back on. I've had a bit of a car trouble last week, which made me wonder about Murphy's law on that "things will go wrong in any given situation, if you give them a chance". Well, I constantly give things such chances, and so I had to head over to the car registrations office once more to fix things. Nothing complicated, just a typo, but still. And, surely, counting for double the traveling time paid off as well, as I immediately stranded in heavy traffic. Got in still five minutes ahead of the appointment. Which someone contradicts Murphy's law. Well, so are laws. With all this and other troubles in mind, tonight I will celebrate with music that is easy on you. So have a great time with tracks by Gunnar Spardel (Simplicity in a Complex World), Massergy (Fire Opal), Fiona Joy Hawkins (Signature Deluxe Editon), Auditive Escape (Polychorme), Gary Farr (An Angel on Earth), and Streamline (Touch the Clouds).
