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 sounds a bit like a fragrance or a new clothing collection – but it isn’t: it’s a new (and the first at all) mix by L064N 5!!
V70P14 (Utopia in regular script) – what isit? let’s ask wikipedia:
‘Utopia is an ideal community or society possessing a perfect socio-politico-legal system.’
ok, sounds legit! sounds also like a goal, that should be achieved by humanity somehow in near future…if there weren’t this huge, all-consuming, mercy- & joyless circumstance called reality…
but hey, it’s a mix by L064N 5! and he’s from the future, u know? he should have seen it all…
now to the mix:
seriously? please don’t let me talk about or try to explain it! just grab your headphones, close your eyes and visualise whatever your V70P14 should be – it’s a deep, dreamy, chopped & screwed, futuristic tripfeaturing artists like datasette, purity ring, keys n’ krates, k.o. and many more.
for a complete tracklist send a msg!
and now: create V70P14 with your imaginational brainpowers & with this mix!
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.
yesyesyall, kickin off the nu year with another re-release on $upra Recordings (and another freshly-retro bloglayout ) !
this time it’s the 2003 album ‘Total Consuming Satisfaction‘ by my alias ‘hell g.‘
‘TCS‘ displays my soundworks from 2001-2003 – it was that time where I was very much into producing drum & bass and dopebeat/triphop music.
I was also pretty much in experimental-mood when it came to loopconstruction, beatprogramming or fx-layering. some of the tunes on ‘TCS‘ where completely jammed in a row, others where complex constructions with weeks or month of finetuning work.
to get a short glimpse on ‘TCS‘ i’ve got some listening-tips for yalls.
1st : U Took My Love
this is one of the jam-tracks from ‘TCS’ – a slightly mad groovy triphop tune with lots of obscure synths, a wobbly gum bassline, tricky dopebeats and an ill rhodes piano. it’s also one of the free-download tracks from ‘TCS’!
2nd : Memento
——————– starting smooth with a soothing pad and percussive breaks then turning into a dark and ominous roller – one of the drum & bass tunes from ‘TCS’.
3rd : Pullover
another dnb-tune from ‘TCS’ – this time it’s a remix of one of my alltime-favetunes: ‘Pullover’ by Speedy J (the old raveheads beyond you dear readers will remember that techno-anthem)! This track is also for free-download!
so far for the tips – there’s quite a lot more different stuff and sounds to discover on ‘TCS‘ – why not checkout for yourself?
listen/download/share ‘Total Consuming Satisfaction’ on bandcamp!
free download tracks are ‘U Took My Love’, ‘Fauna Flashed’, ‘Pullover’ and ‘Don’t Keep Your Head Down’

it’s about that time for a nu mixtape – this time I poached inside the slower realms of contemporary electronic music.
as fall slowly turns into winter I thought about what could be a nice soundtrack for this event?
it somehow had to be slow and dark, it needs atmosphere and it should have a somehow ‘golden‘ vibe to it.
and here it is:
please enjoy ‘TRAPPED // BROKEN & SKREWED‘ !
featured styles in this mix: downtempo, dubstep, chillwave, hiphop, trap, glitch hop, future screw, drag, and many more..
featured artists in this mix: Purity Ring, Haleek Maul, Big Chocolate, Trill-Scott Heron, BoomBaptist, Com Truise, Creep, Them Lost Boys, Death Grips and many more..
time for some more old shit – this time I’ve got 2 tunes from my dead sideproject ‘Annette Gratze‘ for you, created somewhere between 2001/02.
the last time I blogged a track of this sideproject here was already two years ago, so if you want to knowmore about ‘Annette Gratze‘, go on clickingTHIS WAY!
the first track I got for you was one of our latest sessionworks & it wasn’t part of our album ‘Words More in the Air‘.
Achnbach and me (who wrote and composed all tracks) sometimes lingered in the basement of their house and had sessions with various instruments. it was mostly improvised stuff without an defined structure. we jammed around, achnbach on guitar & me on synths & percussion and created this organic, slightly ill piece of cake – it somehow has an overall sloppy jazzy feeling to it so we named it after the place where it was created.
we later added additional electronics and annette’s ad-libs.
the ‘54NC7V4RY E.P.‘ (spelled: Sanctuary) is a smooth, dreamy & chilled downtempo 6 track E.P., but with also psychedelic and sometimes even obscure undertones.
some recommended tracks for quick listening:
the E.P. starts with a lovesong – ‘Jess‘ is a hommage to L064N’s heartthrob J3551C4 6.
the second tune named ‘Luv Horizon‘ is an ode to love itself!
track 5 ‘Retrogram‘ has a slightly sinister vibe to it – in the movie ‘Logans Run’ Logan loses 4 years on his lifeclock when the supervisory computer executes the procedure 033-03, finally known as Retrogram.
if you like what you hear, checkout/download/share the complete ‘54NC7V4RY E.P.‘ below on bandcamp – it’s free!! but only for one month! enjoy & thanks!
