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.


Just what I need

This was a strange week. Not that busy at all, but my mind at no time came to rest. Well, maybe it's the jumpy weather, giving us 13C one day and 29C the other. I don't know. So, what helps with a busy head? Energetic and laid-back ambient did the trick this time. Well, if you cannot rest your thoughts, would like to re-energize calmly, or simply enjoy great ambient music, this should be a show for you. On its playlist you will find Owann (Particles), Dirk Serries (Disorientation Flow), Cousin Silas & Kevin Lyons (Amazing Tales of Time and Space), Time Being (A Place to Belong), Stratosphere (Aftermath), Matt Coldrick (Music for a Busy Head Vol. 1), and Jaja (Starfields).


Hot slabs

It seems like we just passed the event horizon, as so many concerts are now coming into sight. Tomorrow we have the E-Scape festival in the UK, the week after you may meet Berlin School masters in Bochum, and only one week further there's kraut-like rock in Dortmund. And all of these for you electronic lovers only. Enjoy some appetizing tracks by Eric van der Heijden, Dreamerproject and F.D.Project (E-Scape 2015 Compilation), Filter Kaffee (102), Sine Amplitude, and the new EP by von Hallgath (Easterfield).


Cracking open

The beat is on. Another fine new episode of syndae getting into the rhythm again, but still mostly easy going, no heavy lifting. And if you think about it, it is all about rhythm, whether explicit or implicit, which picks you up and takes you to places. Let this show help you with fantastic tracks by Sun-Monx (In the Trees), Martha Rabbit (Zodiaklicht), Suns of Arqa (All is not lost, but where is it?), Another Fine Day (A Good Place to Be - Remixed), Uksuss (Tunguska Chillout Grooves Vol. 12), Rudolf Heimann (Perpetuum Mobile), and Tonblende (Zeitreise).


An earful of snacks

I have to raise a warning that a new festival is in sight. E-Scape is coming up, hopefully starting a new series of events in the UK. Tonight's show has three of the acts on its playlist with John Dyson (Darklight), David Wright (Beyond the Airwaves Vol. 2), and Glenn Main (Into the Blue). More than these, I have tracks by Janneh (Love Times Time), Leaving Richmond (Midnight-Radio Compilation 40), and a wonderful closer by Levente.


If one sees images changing fast enough they cause the impression of living pictures. A technique as old as 1832 in fact, so it is really quite young an invention. Chaining sounds to form a song is so much older and still so popular as in the past. And given the right sounds and sequences, music can also creates a film, a magic mental movie taking one to fantastic places. Tonight we have such tunes, although mainly not of real movies, but putting living images into your mind. Get a nice listen to the tracks by Ron Boots (Acoustic Shadows), Thilo Rex (The Dominoe Principle), Christopher Franke (Perry Rhodan: Pax Terra), Myhael and Jeff Danna (A Celtic Tale: The Legend of Deirdre), and Picture Palace music (Somnambulistic Tunes).


It's Syn-day

So, here I sat recently preparing a new edition for my podcat when I realized that soon it will be issue 300 to be put on the server. Amazing it has come so far and it is still fun to compile the show. Well, I am not going to make a big deal of it, but maybe a tiny, tiny, tiny celebration style of edition, nevertheless. And I am really happy about number 300, having fabulous tracks by Spyra (Staub), moonbooter (special mix), Gert Emmens & Ruud Heij (Echoes from Future Memories), and Stefan Erbe (Back 2 Club Genetica). Thanks a lot, for supporting my podcast as artist, label or listener or all of these. Very much thanks you, for keeping me and for sharing the passion in electronic and ambient music.


Beauty in noise

Listening closely to a shell lets one hear the murmur of the sea. Well, not really, but it quite sounds like it. In truth, the sound you hear is the natural frequency of the shell's air column. Ok, this is far too technical for the beautiful noise it provides. All I'm saying is that tonight's edition of syndae is like a shell. Take a close listen, as it carries half a dozen of real beauties in style and sound. Not the most serene this time, with tracks by Erik Wøllo (Blue Radiance), Reskimus (MRC Beautiful Julia Edition 2015), The Hermit (Liber 3 - Dualism), Johan Tronestam (Roswell), and finally Martha Rabbit (Zodiaklicht). Open up.
