syndae - episode 268
Posted Fri Aug 29, 2014 10:00 pm by treibklang
EM News So what is it that makes an event attractive? Is it the big names? Is it the atmosphere? Is it the people? Well, the Electronic Circus has it all and, additionally, always nice surprises. On tonight's playlist, two more tracks teasing for the pleasing. First, by Vile Electrodes from The Future Through a Lens, and second, Bernd Kistenmacher calling for Utopia. And both live on stage at October 4th in Gütersloh. But there is more great music on, like a track by VAD from his latest album. And then we have a goodie from last century, Bronx Shadows by Paul Lawler. And the final magnificent treat comes from Sundown Cafe who just release their second collaboration album Sunset Reverie.

Yours, Stefan

Hagen von Bergen - Ei Allemol (CD)
Posted Thu Aug 28, 2014 10:35 pm by BruecknerAmbient
EM News Well, I have mentioned my good old friend Hagen von Bergen on this forum already a few times.

Not only is he a good friend, but also the owner of the tiny (but fine-y) EM label BI-ZA records.

AND: he is also a great electronic musician with a very unique blend of styes...

Some of the ingrediences he brews his strong stuff with are:
processed field recordings, trippy dance beats, Reggae, Berlin School sequences, world music, sometimes also catchy hooklines...and a good portion of weird humor, too!

Maybe it should be pointed out that he releases under two monikers:

- as Hagen von Bergen (which is a pseudonym) rather rhythmic, melodic EM

- as Hargest Darken rather dark ambient

Then again, both projects share a lot of elements, and especially so on his latest CD, released in July 2014:

Ei Allemol

...availabel here:



Ever since I had the privilege to be the first person to hear an early mix of the album's main track, the 46-minute-trip "Mautzemacher" on a car ride to Mainz I'm of the opinion that this new album is his greatest achievment so far (...and his previous albums weren't small feats, either!) - a stroke of genius if I ever heard one!

However - as I said, he's a good friend, so I'm probably biased. But you can judge for Yourselves:
here's an early mix of this track; already great, however the album version has even better production values...

Perge - Green Desert 2014
Posted Mon Aug 25, 2014 12:54 pm by phaedra2008
EM News I looked at this with skepticism wondering how many TD renditions are already out there and how many are still to follow.
The artwork takes the piss out of the original release on Relativity becoming Irrelativity, and, the story about the lost 1973 tapes... something I never believed anyway, then the track Movements of a Divisionary.

But I hit the sample play button & all the above didn't matter anymore Laughing

A well crafted album capturing very well that middle TD era in every respect, every track is a gem.

One catch, the "pysical" CDr has the first 4 track only clocking in close to an hour, the download has 4 extra (Sample) tracks ranging from 3-11 minutes in length, maybe these samples were intended for a loger release?

syndae - episode 267
Posted Fri Aug 22, 2014 9:59 pm by treibklang
EM News Must be April again with all the weather going bananas. At least, the real EM fans stay loyal organizing the 7th installment of the Electronic Circus in Gütersloh on October 4. And so we start tonight's edition with two tracks of Circus acts, first by Alerick Project from their album One Way and second Jerome Froese with his friends known as Loom from their album The Tree Hates the Forest. So, yeah, cool stuff coming up in about 6 weeks. Of course, there is more on the roster. Like Elrox with his latest album Lucent Echoes. Then we have a teaser for the upcoming re-release of Shadow of the Wind by Bekki Williams. Also, the new compilation from Midnight Radio number 24 is in with the contribution by Jesper Sorensen. And our closer is an old friend, Mikael Fyrek with A Thousand Years and One.

Yours, Stefan

Horizons New Alpha Wave Movement Release
Posted Wed Aug 20, 2014 11:51 pm by betawave
New releases

The latest release by Alpha Wave Movement "Horizons" is scheduled to be released at the end of August 2014

Horizons is a melodic uplifting suite of compositions with an emphasis on textures and rhythm. Combining the elements of the "old school" 1970's synthesis together with cinematic like thematic intonations.

Sonic tone poems reflecting, refracting and channeling the dynamic and fluid nature of the physical world.

A evocation of emotional melodic and cinematic compositions intended to transcend your listening vistas far beyond the dying light particles on the horizons ear.

Pre-orders available from the Harmonic Resonance Recording Bandcamp site:
[url] https://hrresonance.bandcamp.com/album/horizons [/url]

** Please not that the release is longer in length than the three tracks available for preview during the pre-order period.

Eccentric Orbit: Creation Of The Humanoids
Posted Wed Aug 20, 2014 3:02 am by Craig Shipley
EM News 10 years after their debut release "Attack of the Martians", Eccentric Orbit is back with another release of sci-fi influenced instrumental release "Creation of the Humanoids". More prog than electronic music, there are tasty slabs of keyboard and wind-controlled synthesizers to keep us synth-fans happy. Check the band out here: http://www.eoband.com

(I have no affiliation with the band other than being a happy fan wanting to share the news.)
