New release: Body Control

It felt so necessary to create some heartwarming and body-moving music and have an emotional escape.

Well, here it is, my version of an uptempo-hysteria-house track.

The lyrics sample is a stumbled up version of me stating „They got my body under control, but not my mind and not my soul“.

The song was recorded in a live-session in one take. You can find the making-of-video in an earlier blog post.

I hope, you enjoy the track and have a good dance party with it. 😉

Body Control – Techno House Live Jam

Currently I am working on a track called „Body Control“. Initially, I planned to create some dark techno style, minimal music with fierce acidy arpeggios. Well, the outcome was quite different, again, the patterns morphed to become a techno house track with some trancy elements. Ok, accepted, that’s nice, too.

In this jam, I played the different patterns and transitions live on my Electribe 2s as well as on the Korg Volca Bass.

Hope, you like the track.

Stay Together – new track released

In my latest post, I posted a video of a melo-technoid-wave jam I recently played. As I am quite proud of the melodic progression and the sound design of the track and of the transitions played in live, I decided to release this exact take.

The song was written and performed live solely on my Korg electribe 2s, using some samples I created with elf-audio’s brilliant Koala Sampler app. It was recorded live as a one-take in Ableton Live 10 via a Zoom R16 in audio-interface-mode. In Ableton, some EQing and compression was applied for final mastering, no effects, no cuts, no additional programming.

You may find the track on all major streaming platforms, find some links below.

Isolation Files #001 / Contagious

We are going through crazy times, currently. I am very sorry, about what’s going on in the world around us. About people getting severely sick, about people dying. And I am worrying about the outcome of this situation, how will it affect our daily lives? Will society remain as it is? What will change?

Creating music is one of my ways to cope with this situation. So I started with the idea of lush, melody driven song that provides some good vibes, see my jam in the last post. The feedback I received from you pointed to giving it a bit more beat. Well, this reminded me of the fun I had in the early 90ies with my trusty Casio FZ-1 in breaking the beats. Ok, challenge accepted, I thought and worked a bit on this track.

The track ended up as an industrial style Drum and Bass beast in the middle, showing the chaos that surrounds us all, currently. And it creates an outlook on good times in the end.

I created it on my Korg electribe 2s and played it live into Ableton Live 10, where I added some mastering and two effect transitions.

Hope, you like it 😉

New track „See The Stars“ out now!

I recently bought this little drum machine beast, the Korg Volca Drum. I really enjoy jamming around with it, as it delivers deep sound creation functionality together with an easy comprehensible, Korg-Electribe-style sequencer.

So why not create a complete track from the 6-pattern device, I thought? Four patterns for the drums and percussions and two for constantly changing sounds based on the profound sound of the box should be a good basis for a minimal techno, house track.

Good idea, as I had a lot of fun jamming around, creating the flow and playing with the Volca Drum. Everything has been played live in one take, out-of-the-box, the only two additions are a guitar pedal that was used for additional delay effects and a little bit of multi-band compressor added in Ableton Live 10.

I hope you enjoy this track, too. 😉

Back again to electronic music, I’ve been deeply impressed by the state-of-the-art possibilities for creating music. New tools like elf-audio’s brilliant Koala sampler app as well as great new hardware-based and virtual instruments inspired me and revived my „old“ love for creating electronic music.

Check out my new track „Voodo Tribe“ on online streaming platforms and online stores.

„Welcome to my tribe!“
