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. 😉

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.

Stay Together – Live Jam with Korg Electribe 2s

My latest jam brought me a bit nearer back to Techno House beats. Hope you enjoy my weird interpretation of dance music ;-).

Stay Together!

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 😉
