It's cool

It's cool man! Oh, actually, it is. Somewhat below zero Celsius. Not a quantum of snow at my place, though, rather sunshine and blue sky. So, it's still cool, as is the music for tonight's show. There are still several new releases blooming at his time of year. But as it happened I also like to look back, far back... or not so far? It's a greeting from the year 2000 I have for you on tonight's show. And, as mentioned, some new and coming stuff, too. Have a wonderful evening with tracks by Jim Ottaway (Timeless e-Motion), Frank Specht (Sebastian im Traum), Richard Devine (Fields), Steve Roach (Spiral Revelation), 4T Thieves (Details), and Sequential Dreams (The Exodus Wave).


The fun is on

We are back in time. Yes! Well, not in the past, in the present still. But tonight's the night, Friday night. Spot on to find the latest edition of syndae. And we start into the new year with hot new stuff as well. Also, the calendar for ambient and electronic music events is already quite full, really promising and busy year 2017 will be. I hope you will enjoy syndae, too, as I am happy to continue serving diverse and exciting music for you. Like the tracks of this show, with music by David Wright & Carys (Prophecy), Narcose (Panda Eyes), Min-Y-Llan (Sectioned v6.0), Marque and Reprisal and Nomadic Jurassic (Fields), and Stefan Erbe (The Freedom of Movement).


Cracking the season

Welcome to the end. The end of 2016. At least regarding syndae's podcast, where you will get the final episode for this year. I am a bit in holiday mood, or maybe vacation mood, so tonight the music ranges from solemnly to happy chilling. And we have quite a bunch of tracks on the list. So grab your headphones, snuggle in and enjoy a nice one hour ride. Hope you don't mind me talking in between all the music by Weingarten-Charlton (Where there is Light), Martin Neuhold & Wolfgang Gsell (Winter), Matthew Stewart (A World Bathed in Sunlight), Stefan Erbe (The Freedom of Movement), David Roa (Seamphonik & Ocho Noches), Psicodreamics (Christmas  Elixir), Jim Ottaway (Timeless e-Motion), Alessio Bargiacchi & Floating Spirits (Sectioned V6.0), Arcade Summer (Fastlane Fox EP), Alerick Project (Midnight Radio Compilation 77), and Tetarise (Playing in the Glow).


Lighten up

Our garden is still sprinkled with piles of leaves, although autumn is nearly gone over here. Frosty nights do their parts in ending this colorful time. What I love about it, is the peacefulness, going towards the final quarter of the lifecycle which in a last effort blooms up for ones eye. Well, duh, not that I am in the least romantic. Just like the view. And there is an equivalent in music, which is quiet as well, ambient in general. So here it comes, to please your mind and ears, in form of tracks by I.N.Kh.E. (Solstice), Owann (Eternal Return), Weingarten-Charlton (Where There is Light), Spiral Vremeni & Pleroma Orchestra (Point: Cape Fligely. Part 2. Night), DigitalSimplyWorld (Sounds of Autumn), Øystein Jørgensen (Midnight Radio Compilation 77), Lingua Lustra (Slow Time), and Markus Reuter (Live in Pomona 2016).


Finely ground sound

It's Advent season for some religions. Fairy lights and illuminated stars sprout up out of nowhere, surely to fight the darker time of the year. What does this mean for syndae? Well, it means more great and melodic music treats are up for your listening pleasure. Tonight, I have a regular one hour full of such music, so take your time, join me for some really cool stuff presented in form of tracks by 4T Thieves (The Black Sea & The Digital Lagoon), Matthew Stewart (A World Bathed in Sunlight), Mind.Divided (Midnight Radio Compilation 76), Ashterra and Keiss & Lwpss (Tunguska EMS - Point: BTA), Janne Hanhisuanto (Sleepless), Tony Byrne, MTA Lab (Synthetica), Lee Williams, Shaping Mind, Miriam Christina, Lutz Thuns (Friends of Ambient 18), and Aleks Michalski (Interplay).


Aural presents

A festival of new material, that's what one could call this edition of syndae. Many of the albums you will hear from are right time for christmas season, if you celebrate it and make gifts. If not, well, you can still make gifts to yourself and others by getting hold of one or more of these albums and those still to come. Howsoever, of one thing I am sure, all the music you hear on syndae is a gift to someones ears and mind. And I am grateful for all those artists putting their inspirations to sound. Like the ones on this show, who are Stefan Erbe (The Freedom of Movement), Jean-Michel Jarre (Oxygene 3), Pete Ardron (Unexpected Pleasures), Glenn Main (Tribute to Jean-Michel Jarre), Johan Tronestam (Arthur Went Above the Clouds), WellenVorm (Petrified Forest), and Michael Brückner (Trois Briques).


Ignoring limits

Here I am, up for some fun to clear my mind of the miserable and cold weather. Hence, beats are up, ladies and gentlemen, with some nice rides back to the 1980s, well, sound wise, as the tracks are all current and modern. And while the leaves are dropping fast in the northern hemisphere, tonight's show brings lots of sun-beams along, having exciting pieces by Stan Dart (Hometown Memories), Arcade Summer (Fastlane Fox EP), Dave Dinosour (The Lost Demo Collection), Deadlife (Hear the Living Dead / Compilation), DigitalSlumberParty (Midnight Radio Compilation 75), Dynatron (The Rigel Axiom), PanzerJagerV (The Primordial Dystopia), and Plumegeist (Ghoul Jacker).


Gems in sight

So this is it, normal time has us back on the European continent and it is getting dark very early nowadays. Good there is a nice podcast with some easy going music around that hopefully will lighten your evening for at least a short time, no? Well, it is always great to know you guys are joining me for a ride, and it's a joyful and laid-back one, with tracks by Andy Pickford (Adagiometry 3), Divine Matrix (Music for Space Travel), Das Blaue Palais (Welt am Draht), Plan Omega (Dodecachromia), Jan-Dirk Platek (And Soon We Will Collapse), Full Eclipse (Sampler Series 09.16), and Eagle (Midnight Radio Compilation 74).


This ain't no pumpkin

Are you up to start slow into the week or do you feel the need to ease your mind before it starts? This might be the show for you then, as we are giving it a quite ambient touch tonight. And it is not about Halloween, not at all, no frighting sounds or noises to make you scream. Honestly, why do some people not believe my words? Bad rep? Ok, no more promises, listen yourself to the wonderful tracks by Howard Givens & Madhavi Devi (Source of Compassion), Aleks Michalski (Interplay), Luna Firma (New Horizons), Altus (Innerspace), 4T Thieves (Waves of Change), David Colohan (The Forest / The Wald), and 1414E08 (Neues aus dem Reich der Traumata)..


Magic scences

Back after a short break, where I was sitting in the sun while Germany starts freezing (har har), we are back with some brand new and recent electronic music whose heritage dates back to the 1980s. Yes, it's time for some sounds of the school era, when sequences and organic sounds dominated our aural experiences. Synths dramatically evolved since those day, but the style and warmth of the early days are still present and can be brought to good use in the right hands. Some of those hands composed and played the tracks on tonight's edition. I'd be happy if you join me for tracks by Syndromeda (When In-Side Becomes Out-Side), Bertrand Loreau featuring Lambert (In Search of Silence), Remy (Fears), Ivan Black (Somnium Hypnotic), Polypores (The Forest / The Wald), HyperEx Machine (A Storm is Coming), and Michael Brückner (The Giant Illusion).


Different perspectives

It was a rainy late night. The wiper smeared the lights of passing cars over my front shield. And the sound of luaghter and cool music still resonated in my brain. Yes. I was on my way home from the impressive Electronic Circus festival this morning. And heaven seemed to know it's gone for this year. Well, no, I'm not sad, it was a great event and I enjoyed it a lot. Not that tonight's show has anything to do with it. Except for it being a short version. But it has magnificent tracks on it, by Dean De Benedictis (Salvaging the Present), Realm (Empyrean), Jim Ottaway (Invisible Vortex), John Novak (Laments of a Chess Automaton), Digital People (Dead Orbit), Glenn Main (Tribute to Jean-Michel Jarre).


Hanging asound

It's one of the last warmer and sunny days over here at my place, and thus will be the music of tonight's edition: relaxed and chilling. So I hope you will find some time to lay back and have a joyful moment listening to these fine tracks. Best to visit a peaceul and nice place in your mind palace, sit down and let your soul hang around following the slower and faster beats of the show, while listening to tracks by Vaporgrave (Split 2), Julian Ray (Space Wanderer), The Pels Syndicate (Life Cycle), Stan Dart (Hometown Menories), Kuba (Society of Inner Light), Three Fields (Island Mixes), Who Ha (Retro Promenade 09.16), Max Jahn (Skyrunner), Heavenchord (In Search of a New Dimension), rob-a (Element EP), and B. Toriyama (Episodes).
