Power for your pleasure

Everyone will agree that the sun is a massive big ball of energy, right? And for mid fall I just got a high dose of sun this week. So where to put it? Well, best to share it. That's what I'll hopefully do with tonight's edition. Many new releases coming up in autumn preparing us and lighting up the way for winter. Ok, well, at least for the northern hemisphere that is. For the others, use all the energy to power your air conditionings. Lots of it on this show with Weldroid (Elektronvolt), moonbooter (The Wave), Sysyphe (The Cities of Silver Trees), 4T Thieves (Glass), Andy Pickford (Vanguard 1), Divine Electronics (Birnam Wood), and Pirata (Escondido por ahi).

Revenge of the Disco

Everything returns. Especially in fashion you see all trends come back every now and then. Or bad hair and beard styles. Or music. Which is our podcasts own topic, as we go back for a nice space synth trip just to return with modern synthwave electronica. This is one of those episodes, where I simply had fun compiling the show, bringing back memories of good (and bad) old times. I hope you will have as much fun with the music. And this is what you will get tonight: Vortex Elements (Gate of Life), Rygar, Kano, Protonic Storm, and Xain (Spacesynth Collection compilation), Perturbator (Dangerous Days), VHS Glitch (Evil Technology), Mythical Vigilante (Dreamland Skate Center), Dynatron (Artificial Afterlife compilation), and Stan Dart (Tales from the Solar System).

Forward into the past

Plenty of new and marvellous music tonight, with modern interpretations of traditional electronic and well redone earlier material. It has a feel of Quantum Leap, combining two ages and still feeling like home. In this edition, we are taking time, mix it a bit up and put it nicely to our ears. Have an enjoyable time with tracks by Chronotope Project (Dawn Treader), Paul Ellis (Moth in Flames), Vortex Mechanic (Vortexly), Kellerkind Berlin (Walk With Me), Z (Real Life Never Stops), Uwe Reckzeh (Perfection Mode), and Colin Rayment (Abstract Dimensions).

Acoustic jogging

So I just had a look at my calendar and, boy, these next months are stuffed with events on electronic music. And there is quite a bunch of new releases and tracks out this month, which makes this a great time to train ear muscles. For example, with tonight's show and all those fine tracks to be heard, quite fleshy treats on chilly beats. Join me tonight for tracks by Vortex Elements (Gate of Life), Terra Nine (Lucid Dreaming), Stan Dart (Tales from the Solar System), Forlon (Birnam Wood), Potential differenSe (delicatesseN), Erik Wøllo & Bernhard Wöstheinrich (Welenuhr), and the great Sundown Cafe (Sailing Away).

A Stage of Happiness

Over all time of syndae's existance, I've been accompanying and supporting the electronic circus festival right from its birth event. They have turned into a very cool day of music, spanning a broad style of electronica and up to synth pop. On October 3rd they will have a fresh start in a new location, and the line-up is simply fantastic, if you love EM. Tonight's show is dedicated to this festival, giving you tracks by all the live acts that day, starting with John Dyson, who will appear together with Michael Shipway and Paul Ward. Then we have German's famous Spyra, going classical together with a cellist. From the past and still live and kicking, German's No More will be on stage. And finally, the starter of the day, a wonderful and enjoyable live act on its own: Meesha from the Netherlands.

Spotting colours

Finally, my internet connection is stable again, so I am pleased to provide you with a new edition of syndae tonight. And it's full of new music as well, so I hope it will recompense for having to live a week without the fine electronic music on syndae. On this show you will find tracks by Erik Wøllo (Echotides), Chronotope Project (Dawn Treader), Broekhuis, Keller & Schönwälder (Green), Hagen von Bergen (In Da Villa Kunta Bunta), and Syndromeda (Too Much Information).

On the quiet path

Now they had images from the other side of the moon, what a nice and quiet place it must be. Endless planes, always calm and serene. Put a bench at the corner of some crater and enjoy the view of the sun around the edge. Maybe get a glimpse of that big blue ball hiding behind its front. Yeah, right, time for some ambient tunes to fit to the scenery and to keep one at peace. We're onto it with tonight's tracks by Psicodreamics (Ambiethernum revisited), Morandi Experiment (Midnight Radio Compilation), Steve Roach (Etheric Imprints), and Lutz Thuns and his Friends of Ambient.

Going voices

Now to something completely different. We had tracks with lyrics before, but tonight there's quite a number of them on the show. I am looking forward to the Electronic Circus in October with No More, out came their new album today, so all the other tracks fell right into place for an extraordinary show with respect to the common syndae contributions. I hope you enjoy this variation on electronic music and related styles, with tracks by DJ 8-8008 feat. Michelle Hylan (The Ritual), No More (Silence & Revolt), Superstrings (Sound of Slow), TYA (Echoes), Frech and Koch (Digital Family Vol. 5 / Compilation), and Lambert Windges (Faint).

Going darker

Dark it was, the moon shone bright. Sounds strange? Well, if you're listening to this show, you will certainly know it's not. While we take a step to the more bassy side of electronics, the greatness of the music will spark all over. Lots of free music on tonight's show, and for some please respect their name your price request. Have a great time with this edition, having tracks by Paolino Canzeroni (Moto Verso), Airform and Dmitriy Galas (Tunguska Expedition 3), Potential differenSe (delicatesseN), Displacer (Electric Dreams), and verstaerker & a/head (Mammoth).

Fresh desires

Yes, we are back. A short but successful break, enjoying the summer sun, cursing the summer heat, and having some fun at the beach. Oh, and most important, a new microphone is in place and does its duty well. To stay in the summer mood and relax, tonight's collection of new and noteworthy music takes it easy on your ears. Pleasing sounds and modest rhythms to allow for a beautiful mind trip. Including a tiny look ahead on a live event in August with David Wright. So what's in it tonight? Amazing tunes by Faex Optim (Mercury), BatteryDead, David Wright (Beyond the Airwaves Vol. 2), Pan Electric & Ishq (Elemental Journey), Eagle (Midnight Radio Compilation 44), and finally Rainer Winschermann and Stan Dart with Wolfgang Gsell (Close Up).

Flourishing sounds

Just about to head into a summer break with syndae. And the microphone thought so too and broke. So, sorry about the voice over, but I hope you still enjoy the music, which this time spans about an hour as season closer. Well, enjoy a short break of new syndae episodes by revisiting older ones. There are more than 300 of them in the archive. And especially have fun with this edition, serving music by Matt Coldrick (Music For a Busy Head Vol. 1), Der Waldläufer (Nateace), Planet Boelex (Moments), Otarion (Monument), Stefan Erbe (2Club Genetica), Stan Dart (Tales Of The Solar System), Dorian Przystalski & Wojciech Wszelaki (Journey to Dream), Realtime (Magnificent Imaginations), Owann (Particles), Commit and Daega Sound (Subtextures / Compilation), and Palagran (Midnight Radio Compilation 41).

Excerpts of excellence

So what do you do finding the microphone not working just when you are about to record the podcast for this night? Right. PANIC!!! Well, after panicking I checked for an alternative, so do not be scared about my voice on the show, it is an emergency solution. Nevertheless, the music is still excellent, so I hope to have you with me for a great collection of new, nearly new and older tracks, which are by Planet Boelex (Moments), Sequentia Legenda (Blue Dream), Steve Roach (Skeleton Keys), and DigitalSimplyWorld (Solar Observers). And we close the show with an event plug for the 2015 Cosmic Grunn electronic music meet. Of course, having teaser tracks for you, by Phrozenlight and Von Haulshoven.
