my dear readers: it’s been a while since my latest blogpost here – a whole september without a sign of life, sad but true…
but here we go with some awesome new stuff by my alter-ego ‘L064N 5‘.
I created a new mix-series named ‘5C13N71F1C FV7VR1571C4‘ (Scientific Futuristica) which represents that kind of sound, that is settled somewhere inbetween nowhereland, stylewise, and has a slightly retro-futuristic, deep and spaced-out atmosphere.
some may call it #dreamy-dubstep, some would brand it #chillwave – but whatever hashtag or drawer you prefer: try to listen to this mix without prejudice and let your soul float thru nearly 45 minutes of intergalactic bliss.
this is Vol.I in an evergrowing series of 5C13N71F1C FV7VR1571C4.
listen/stream/download 5C13N71F1C FV7VR1571C4 via the link below vvvvv !
we are approaching the season of the falling leaves aka autumn with huge steps & it’s time to show you a brandnu sideproject of mine which may become your perfect soundtrack for this upcoming event: I’m talking bout ‘Falling‘ !
‘Falling‘ is the brainchild of shhhh-records label-owner and friend Turgut Kocer (some of you might also know him thru his ambient-soundscapes under the alias of ‘Wardrobe Memories‘) and myself.
the idea behind ‘Falling‘ was to virtuallyjam with various musicians around the globe via the interwebs – the result is astonishing: a sinister creeping dark-jazz-soundtrack-monster with lot’s of lynch-post-twin peaks and bohren-influences.
‘Falling‘ consists of Turgut Kocer (key, sounds, bells), Gabriel Masterson (sax), Frederik Groborsch (upright) and myself (drums).
and here it is:
our first official longplayer ‘Original Motion Picture Soundtrack‘ has already hit the web & is ready for listening/streaming. and if you’re more into the real shit (f.e. like vinyl) you better read along:
on the 13th of september 2013 we will drop a special 100piece limited edition in screaming green 180g deluxe vinyl, including an A4 heavy postercard, download-codes and a bonus-cd with additional 15 b-sides & unreleased tracks – how friggin’ awesome is that??

or purchase directly thru the shhhhop !
yesyes yalls, it’s true: there’s a brandnu album of my band ‘7 Days Awake‘ – it’s titled ‘Sleepwalk‘ and available exclusively via bandcamp now!
‘Sleepwalk‘ consists of 7 narcotica-laden songs ranging from doped downtempo (codeine, circuits, vortex mind, css) to psyched-out symphonic jams (wasteground, everybody online?) and displays our work of the last 2 years.
to get a short glimpse on ‘Sleepwalk‘ I give you 3 tracks to checkout:
this is a remake of our song ‘Short Circuit‘ (from our 2007 album ‘Time Fluctuations‘) but with a complete makeup of the lyrics and vocals.
as the name already says this songs is strong sedativa – about the incompetence of letting things, situations or persons go after they’ve already left long time ago.
song’s about entering new terrain in everyday life – seeking the unknown challenges and understanding life as constant change. a deep and melancholic hymn.
curious bout ‘Sleepwalk‘? you can also check it in full-length here below or directly on bandcamp! listen/stream/download/buy/share ‘Sleepwalk’!
thanks & cheerz!
p.s.: already seen our live-rehearsal-performance? watch this LINK !
ages ago I told you bout the first band I had back in the 90′s – I’m talking bout ‘Brot & Spiele‘.
meanwhile some wonderful things happened – our former guitarist Ralph Bremenkamp found our very veryfirst recordings we did before we released our first official album ‘Baked City‘ in 94′.
he found our very first demo’s aswell as our very first recorded livegig from 92‘ at the good ole’ JZ Oerlinghausen – how friggin’ sick is that??
Brot & Spiele consisted of Thorsten Strohmeyer (Disthorsten) on guitar, Lutz Schindler (Schindler) on bass, Ralph Bremenkamp (Bremi) on guitar and myself on drums & vocals at this point of time.
well, it’s over 20 years ago and the stuff still sounds somehow kinda fresh & different – at this time our style was a mixture of punk, indie, grunge, hardcore and uhm maybe even some blues & jazzy flavours.
for those of you dear readers who are maybe interested in my very past I prepared three zippacks – the first features our complete first demo, the 2nd our 2nd demo and the third contains our complete first gig at the JZO. the livetape also contains a sloppy cover of nirvana’s ‘Smells like Teen spirit‘ and a hilarious ‘Stand By Me‘ cover !
please don’t expect hifi-quality – get ready for the original worn-out dirty & filthy sound – these are good ole tape-rips!
I’ve got two songs for your preview-listening pleasure – first is called ‘Living Dead‘ from Demo 1.
second song was named ‘Sure‘ from our second demo named ‘Wie das Brot so spielt‘ – recorded at the good ole Fla-Fla Cinema by the Ars Moriendi & Fich Art Crew! Some songs are already on Demo 1, but in different versions.
time for another unholy alliance, yalls!
this time I was teaming up with cartoonist, musician and very good friendRalph Ruthe. most of you dear readers should know him for his excellent cartoons and his website ‘Shit Happens’ (if not, you’ve got to catch that up qickly!!).
some of you might know, that Ralph is also an magnificent songwriter. he produces catchy electronic popmusic already for ages and he plays & performs them recently with his band‘We Are Linus’, where I’m also a part of.
once upon a time I did some remixes for two of Ralph’s tunes (Du bist wie Sand & 10 More Miles ). Ralph liked the remixes a lot and sent me a collab-track named ‘Old Times’ where I should put my fingers on.
I took that tune and send it completely thru the shredder – I added some synths, a spoonful of acid and edited until the doctor came.
here’s the result: a catchy, ravey and ill dancetrack with lots of oldschool house- and electroflavours. enjoy!!
it’s been ages since my latest last call – so here we go with another one starring a selfmade mix from 2010 named ‘Dancing on the darkside‘.
as the name already says the main mood in this mix is the darker one, at least until the middle of the mix, and then finally some light breaks thru – stylisticly goin’ from indietronic, chillwave and italo to the more nu disco electro- and housie-side of dancemusic.
featured artists in this mix are f.e. metro area, tristesse contemporaine, DVAS, crookers, bag raiders, etc.
download/listen/enjoy ‘Dancing on the darkside‘ – and always remember: content posted under the topic ‘Last Call’ stays online for one week after posting – next week it will be offline forever!so grab it fast!!
it’s time for another rerelease on $upra Recordings: this time it’s the second official longplayer by PUCH ,named ‘Sense‘.
‘Sense‘ was produced & recorded between 2002-2003 – compared to our first selftitled lonplayer ,’Sense‘ is a far more melancholic and also more songoriented album.
it combines styles like downtempo/triphop with classic pop and aswell lounge flavours and has a slight indietouch through spices like glitch, dub & illbient.
I first give you three tracks for a small listening impression:
1.) Son Of Schiwago
——————— Featuring the magnificent vocals of Cara McQueen this song has somehow slightly atmospheric & cinematic vibes.
2.) Cover Me With Joy
we can’t deny a little ‘Air’-influence on this one – a worn-out and crunchy dopebeat carries a symphonic organ thru a classic composition featuring the vocals of myself.
3.) Blue Corazón
—————— blue is the keyword here for the overall mood – a deep & melancholic jazzed-up song featuring cara’s outstanding voice again.
I hope these impressions give you a nice view on the overall sad vibes of ‘Sense‘ – tho ‘Sense‘ has way more tracks with vocals, there are some instrumental tunes (f.e. ‘Days Gone’, ‘Big Noise’) aswell. we also give away two tracks of ‘Sense‘ for free download: ‘Space Travel’ & ‘Whatelse Is Wrong’ !
