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??

you can also check/listen/stream the complete release in full length on bandcamp:
if you like what you hear you can purchase ‘Original Motion Picture Soundtrack directly via my blog – just send an order to this email: falling (at) hell-g (dot) com
or purchase directly thru the shhhhop !
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 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’ !
it’s been quite a while since we’ve approached my mp3-abyssum, nearly one year ago exactly.
while digging thru old tapes I found another rare pearl of my very early recording and composingworks from 1995.
it stars my second dead alias ‘Floater‘ (read more about ‘Floater‘–> HERE! ) with the epic-10minute-dreamy-ambient-electropop tune ‘Shoreline‘ and it’s one of that tunes which unfortunately only exist on regular audiotape.
so please don’t expect high-end hifi sound!
inside my mp3 abyssum this track is found in the quadrants ‘Lonely Tunes‘ & ‘Totally Leftfield‘ – stilistic it’s a slow & smooth ambient electronica tune with lots of synthpads, a bright FM piano and far-died-away vocals in the background.
my dear readers,
it’s again time to pay tribute to yalls – 2012 is full, 2013 is already knockin’ and I again wanted to know which was yall favourite post of mine in 2012?
