What an interesting week. Storms everywhere, although I have been lucky to date with respect to effects. At least weather wise. Same holds for the job though, where it got quite stormy this week and more strong winds are ahead. Great, if you own a sailer. Well, after some rather quite minutes on the last episode, tonight you will get a bit more speed in sound with new, current and upcoming releases. Join in and listen to fantastic music by Roberto Sass (Psyche), Stefan Erbe (Distopia), Synth Replicants (Midnightradio Compilation 110), Stan Dart (Electronic), Ivan Black (Fancy Gitter 2), Dolphins of Venice (Mutuals), Nattefrost (Dendrophile), illocanblo (Habitat), Garrett Lechowski (Midnightradio Compilation 110), Brainwork (Late in Berlin).

These are terrible days. I usually refrain from political topics on my podcast page, but what is happening in the Ukraine makes me sad and angry. I hope most of you guys are safe out there and will get out of any trouble. And I believe that most people in Russia do not support the actions of that dictator regime going to war with anyone. Well, I hope you all will be safe as well. It's a pity tonight's edition gets tainted by these actions. There is great music inside, beatful of course, as I need some beating sounds for some reason. Stay safe and have a thoughtful listen with music Markus Masuhr (Haze In The Abyss At Night), Morgen Wurde & Tis (Wacht), Piece Of Acid (Der Grosse Knall Remixes), W-litio (Vortex), TNT (Midnightradio Compilation 110), Mesopotam, Andrew Haines (Wayward Sketches of a Manual Labourer), Vodor L Zeck (Landsberg Dist), Toxic Derwish (Happy Birthday Mister Camembert!).
Disclaimer: I am not imposing any of my thoughts on artists on this show, nor do I claim that they share my views.
Dark times in sight at
Not many words to loose this time. You will get a in-the-mix edition of syndae this time with excellent ambient music by Lorenzo Montanà (Descent), Omniscenx (Midnightradio Compilation 110), The Living Earth Show (Music for Hard Times), Luka Prinčič (algoforte02), Jannis Wichmann & Eisenlager (Стоп!).

We have all the winners on tonight's edition. That is all those who won the Schallwelle award for 2021, for which the ceremonies took place last week. It was a wonderful evening with many visitors, and a great time to see many people again for the first time since two or three years. And also the chance to meet some I never met in real life before. Of course, the main reason was to celebrate electronic music especially from Germany and our neighbours. With three concerts being given by Tonal Assembly, Stan Dart, and Hhnoi. And here comes music by all the awardees plus one with Joerg Dankert (Restore faith), Suriya, Schiller (Summer in Berlin), Unisphere (TempUs), Hinterland (Codes of the Biosphere), Tangerine Dream (Raum), Kebu (Urban Dreams), Stefan Erbe (Distopia).

If you see someone in great need, it seems a good idea to help by donating goods or even money. If you are a musician, you might want to multiply donations by creating something many others would like to spend money for that you can donate. That's what Dorus aka XaVioN did. Not only that, he motivated other artists to do the same, which resulted in the now starting Musicians for Ukraine series. Tonight, you will get to hear all the tracks of that album and I strongly support you going and getting a copy of this fine release. All earnings from the sells go to Humanitarian aid for Ukraine. A great idea and well worth to support. Have a thoughtful time with music by Bass Ronin x Greencyde, Riversilvers, Andy Leech, Krisu, Day 7, Dimatis, Melle Louise, Ambient Light, Blaudiss, Svwlxw, Roberto Sass, XaVioN, and Wane of Summer (Musicians For Ukraine Vol. 1), XaVioN (Musicians For Ukraine Vol. 2), plus a track by Brainquake & Linn Friberg (Стоп!).
Peace in pieces at
Join me and take a break from the crazy world outside listening to some chill out tunes tonight, where I mixed mid to low paced music this time. We had some nice sunny days in the end of this March, but even the weather decided to go for April now. And while this edition appears on April 1st, there is no joke inside but all very cool music that was published recently or will be soon. I am really lucky to have music putting my thoughts to breeze from time to time. So do the tracks of tonight very well composed by Roberto Sass (Psyche), CIALYN (Sour Leaves), Morgen Wurde & Tis (Wacht), ELEON (Hidden in Time), Sigel (midnightradio compilation 110), Eisenlager (Can Potatoes Cure Insanity), Simon Klee (The Light Of Elevation), Second Sight (International Index), Stan Dart (Electronic).

Well, it's Spring. Kinda. And it is April. Definitely. At least according to the weather switching between snow and rain and sunshine within a few days. Is this still important? I do not know. What I do know, though, is that music is important. Music keeps you sane and makes life worth living. So here we go for a nice bunch of tracks providing aural delicatessen. Have a great time with music by F.D. Project (Color of Life), Eagle (Synth. Music) (Hypervelocity Star), Audio Obscura Vs Black Sonar (A Scream From Outer Space), Hyrn (Furrows in the Ground), Johan Tronestam (Spring Volume 1), Ivan Black (Last Assignment), Colin Rayment (Polyphonic Memories II), Bernhard Wöstheinrich & Alexander Paul Dowerk (Vault Amusement), Tangerine Dream (Raum).
Springing to live at
I am not sure what to say about this time of the year. It should have been some days for peace and hope, so the music on this edition does actually go in this direction. What can one do other than hope for the world becoming a better place? There are good people out there, at least that's what I believe and what I experience in music. Enjoy this hopeful hour with music by Marcello23 (Zeitgeist), David Helpling (IN), Will Ackerman (Positano Songs), Bernward Koch (Dreamy Piano Music to Relax), Ronald Van Deurzen (Tale of Dreams), Gian Berselli & Jérémy Marais (Creative Stillness), Divine Matrix (Journeys), Steve Orchard (For Sunny Days), Stefan Erbe (Distopia).

It seems unbelievable, but these atrocities are still on-going. Only because of a few old, white guys living in the barbaric ages where the bats ruled the world. Four weeks ago I featured Musicians for Ukraine Volume 1, an album where all earnings go to humanitarian help for fugitives in need. Now, there is Volume 2 available, and this show is solely dedicated to this album with great music by AUEL, Alchemorph, Deep Sky Musics, Two Weeks, Inum, LA Fillette, Utopia Fade, Eagle Rays, Carameladora, Peter Wild, Another Dawn, Loss Combinator, Renovatio, and Olduvai (Musicians For Ukraine Volume 2).

What comes after death? There are some theories about it, and as far as I know, noone has yet proven any of them. Well, I hope there is some kind of heaven, where all the really good guys meet up and have some great time. Something I also wish for Klaus Schulze, who passed away this week. Sad news to all EM lovers, indeed. What I do not wish for anybody is to come back dead (or undead for that matter) and live a haunting un-life. The latter is proposed by many books and movies, the youngest being a virtual move called Dawn of the Undead released today, where I have the original soundtrack for you. Hope you will still enjoy the show with music by Klaus Schulze (Angst), Talking to Ghosts, Hellweed, Aestheia, Myth, Progeny -1, Time Away, Ambient Indigo, Wane of Summer, Promethex, K37 (Dawn of the Undead).

Do you also often wish for a crystal ball? Wouldn't it be great to be able to see the future? Or would this impose you trying to change the future? Which would render the vision by the crystal to not come true. So it it still the future? There are tons of books and movies about time travel and how it could work. Ok, different story though. And I am not sure where I am going with this at all. For tonight's edition, I chose to focus on serenity. Kind of. I just need some quietness in live for a moment, for a glimpse. Join me, will you? Really great tunes by Dave Luxton (Ghost of a Small Child), Karmacosmic (Inner Peace), Jeff Greinke (Noctilucent), Craig Padilla (Discovery of Meaning), Time Away (Journey to Bytopia), OneAmbient4 (Spring Volume 2), Rusty Crutcher (Oracle Of Delphi), Michael Stearns (Planetary Unfolding)

There is beauty in repetition, especially, if it is not the same all the time. Sounds paradox? Well, people do love symmetry in things. At least, most of us do. It is a sign of beauty. And if there is something out of the order, one can easily get disturbed by it. On the other hand, if something is too symmetrical, we easily get bored. So tiny divergences are cruicial to make things interesting. This holds for visuals as well as aural things. I love a great sequence, may it be rhythm, bass guitar, or a step sequencer. But if it stays the same for too long, I lose interest. Some people are masters of making it sound interesting, and here they come in numbers with Fanger & Schönwälder feat. Lutz Graf-Ulbrich (Analog Overdose 6), K.I.Companion (Wayfarer), The Tin Box (Thirteenth Listen), Eisenlager (Supermax), Hats Off Gentlemen It's Adequate (The Confidence Trick), Wellengärtner, Wöstheinrich & Parsick (Ultima Ratio).
