Friendly Week – Day 7: Syndae & Sequences Electronic Music

We started with electronic music, we end this week with 2 podcast sites of the same style

Syndae-Logo

Syndae is an independent podcast on electronic music of ambient, space, new age, harmonic, traditional, progressive, and rhythmic style, not directly including electronic dance music. The goal of Syndae is to make aware of fine electronic music, by providing enjoyable episodes with well known and not yet well known artists from around the world, and to promote events of the electronic music scene, by dedicating episodes to selected artists of such an event. Host of the show is Stefan, an enthusiast of electronic music, who likes to spread the word and sound of synth.

I got in contact with syndae through Facebook and since then Stefan played my tracks in several podcasts, helping me to spread the (electronic) word :-). He´s a nice guy to talk with and I´m glad to know him and I highly appreciate his support! It´s good to see people like him working for the electronic music scene, as talking with him you realize, that he loves that music scene.

Sequences Logo

Sequences was born out of the demise of the very first UK electronic music audio magazine, Inkeys, a springboard for many global musicians to be heard for the first time and the short lived Syntrax and became the number one UK electronic music magazine. First published in 1992 as a audio cassette, then as a A4 magazine with a compilation CD with ever issue. Since the beginning of 2012 they’ve had over 138,000 hits to their site, which was upgraded at the same time in 2012. Mick Garlick has been in Electronic music for over 45 years now, from the early experimental sounds of Karl Heinz Stockhausen, the German scene in the 70’s with Tangerine Dream, Ashra, Klaus Schulze, Robert Schroeder etc. through to some of the more modern, trance, chill-out, ambient music, although they stay away from techno, dance, d.j. mixes, house and the more pop orientated stuff.

Sequences-Mick

Mick and his team are always on the lookout to find new and interesting musicians to preview on our shows, with listeners all round the globe. They are a non profit outfit, making waves in the music industry for a very underrated genre in electronic music. If you are a musician interested in having some of your music previewed on our podcasts and to a global audience, do get in touch.

Sequences-Mick-2

Through Soundcloud I came in contact with Mick – the „CEO“ of the great Sequences team. Right from the beginning of my conversations with him, I realized that there is a nice – totally straightforward – guy at the end of the line who is totally interested in new electronic sounds. I can not tell you how happy I was when I was part of one of his podcast for the first time … Through the years he supported me by playing my music in serveral podcasts and in 2014 I was allowed to create a remix of the original Sequences-opening-theme! Thank you Mick for your support over all the years! Beside the chance being played on his podcast, you also will be presented in the nice pdf-documents they create for each show!

So, if you are interested in new electronic sounds by artists from all over the world you better listen to Sequences. Available on Soundcloud, Mixcloud, Facebook, iTunes and on their website.

Friendly Week – Day 6: Ann Grace & Marie Therese

2 ladies who brought chilled lounge music to me …

G R A C E

Ann-Tranquilitá

Ann Grace (Ana Graciela) is a spanish woman from the mediterranean side. In 2006 she began as a Dj of deephouse music and two years later she dediced to compose her own music. Piano and violin melodies and pads are common in her songs and for she is very important to transmit real feelings,convey the magic of the power of music.

Ann-Calma

Some years ago, I got in contact with Ann on soundcloud. I was impressed by the perfection of her music – that´s what I call pure chillout music. As usual, when I fall in love with someone´s music I aksed her if I could remix a track of her and she allowed me to work on „Calling Dreams„. Also, she´s a nice lady to talk with, and I really would love to meet her in real life – maybe the future will give us that chance. Ann Grace is not only a great composer (and violin player by the way..), she also is a talented remixer! Therefore it was a great honour for me, as she agreed to remix one of my tracks: „Sea Of Tranquility (from my album „Spaceflight – The Final Chapter).

Ann3

I really enjoy listening to her tracks and I´m sure you will do the same. Enjoy her sounds on Soundcloud, Facebook or ReverbNation.

Marie-Header

She has started some years ago with composing electronic tracks. Many beautiful – but also sad – stories of people she had met, inspired her to write songs.

Marie-whiteAir

Through Ann I came in contact with Marie Therese. As she´s from Austria too, it was quite easy to talk with her …:-) and I was blown away by her talent. Marie writes chillout tracks of incredible beauty. The more I listened to her tracks the more I asked myself if I was allowed to use the term chillout when it comes to my music. Soft tunes with a great consciousness of creating relaxed atmospheres, combined with smooth rhythms – that´s what Marie´s music is all about.

Marie-Friuts

Like Ann she is open to collaborations with other artists, knowing that the experience while working with others is something you don´t want to miss anymore and helps you to improve your own skills. So Ann, Marie and I decided to setup a collab-remix-project which is called „Always There

Marie-Time

If you like chillout tracks full of emotions and positive energy – listen to Marie´s tracks on Facebook, Soundcloud or ReverbNation.

Friendly Week – Day 5: MikeWhite Presents & Claudio Fiore

Today I present you a collective of artists and the CEO of Ultrasonic Music Germany in the UK.

M I K E W H I T E
P R E S E N T S

MWP-2013 Promo Pic

They are a collective of writers, singers and producers from London, England, making music that reflects their passion for Dance and Electronica culture, especially House and Trance music. Also, they want to extend their melodies, lyrics and arrangements into a wider, melodramatic, more cinematic sound too, as they have always felt that dance music is not just for the nightclub. It is also capable of serving the intimate moments between the listener and their headphones. Their music is really about the groove…the brooding pulse of the rhythm, delivered with gallons of soul..soaring, uplifting melody that seduces and embraces the listener.

MWP-shapesmith2a

I had the honour to meet them in April 2013 in London (at the famous SCHILLER gig in London) and I was impressed about their great understanding when it comes to write dancetracks (beside the fact, that it was a very nice evening with them joining together the concert). Even more, I can truly say that no one else (in the EDM social media world) is that open for collaborations like they are. Because of this attitude I had the chance to remix several of their hits: God´s BluesThe LiftHeal Your Heart2AM.

MWP-Gods Blues

Countless postings on their Facebook-site show another side of this collective: The eternal search and support for new talents, worth to be pushed into the focus of peoples mind. The latest result of this attitude is the collaboration with british singer and songwriter Shane Nolan. The track is called „The Explorer“ and another mighty evidence of their talent to look for the right ingredients to create a great dance track (which I had the honour to remix too). You can find them on Facebook, Soundcloud and ReverbNation (just to mention a few sites ..)

Claudio-cocktails

I came in contact with Claudio through Soundcloud. From the first moment I loved his style, no matter which field of electronic music he used for his tracks. Smooth, with a lot of passion in his music – that´s the way I knew this guy. Beside his own great music, he provides time to look for new talents and present them in his weekly radio show. I can not say how thankful I am that he played my tracks so often in his shows – much appreciated!!! He´s a nice guy to talk with and open for all kind of musical collaborations; due to this attidue I was able to create a remix for one of his tracks: Solar Paradox

ClaudioHouse

Claudio is another example for a higly talented artist who is always looking for possibilites to collaborate in order to enhance his skills. Enjoy his sounds on his website, Facebook, Soundcloud or ReverbNation (just to mention a few sites …).

Friendly Week – Day 4: Mark Dorricott – Halcyon Daze – Auditory Rhythms

This time I present you three artists I already had the honour to collaborate:

M A R K
D O R R I C O T T

Mark

Mark Dorricott is a UK-based keyboard player, composer, and producer who writes everything from Jazz and Latin based numbers to more contemporary Ambient and New Age piano music. His work can be described as esoteric and cinematic, ranging from strongly thematic to dreamy and atmospheric. He has released several CDs, and compilations featuring fender rhodes electric piano and acoustic piano works of various styles from contemporary late night Jazz right through to mellow Ambient tracks.

Soul lounge

Whenever you like to listen to soulful music, tracks full of warmth and coolness – sometimes in combination with great singers (for instance Ms. King) – head over to Mr. Dorricott and I promise you wont be disappointed! I´m very proud that such a skilled musician collaborated with me – already for two albums: EVENTS … and MIDNIGHT. Both albums represents the essence of his virtuosity in playing keys while I did my best to create the electronic cosmos for it 🙂

NightDrive

You can listen to his music on Soundcloud, Bandcamp or iTunes – enjoy the sounds!

I met Andy for the first time in April 2013 in London where we both visit the afterparty of SCHILLER´s first concert in the UK. Right from the beginning I felt to have found a related soul when talking about electronic music. Listening to his music I discovered a rich and soulful universe of sounds and rhythms.

HalyconDaze

Like no one else he understands to write electronic songs for the heart – you instantly feel fine while listening to his tracks. The depth in his ambient tracks is something special to me, therefore it was clear, that I´m going to use his songs in my podcast series < 60 minutes of chill >.

tranquil eyes

You will understand my enthusiasm if you listen to tracks like „The Dust Rings of Epimetheus“ on one of his several sites like Facebook, Soundcloud or ReverbNation.

Another impressive artist in the fields of electronic music. Elaine Frost – the lady behind Auditory Rhythms. Normally I don´t like EDM, but she´s creating tracks full of energy and warmth which let you fall in love with them instantly.

Elaine

So the first contact with her (on Soundcloud) lead into a remix of one of her tracks: „Imaginary Flow„. I wonder how she made that great combination between dance/dub/ … and ambient music. Something I never got to go, but for her it´s no problem to do so. So, after that remix it was clear for me to collaborate with her on a complete new track, and while doing so, I discovered, that she even has a wonderful voice! With great pride I was allowed to use her vocals in one my track „Orbital Flight, Part One„, which became a big success on our soundcloud sites.

In the recent days I realized, that she also make fantastic videos to her tracks – what a creativity this lady has inside! Join her world of sounds and rhythms on Soundcloud, Facebook or ReverbNation.
