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.

Slow down your mind

"Don't drink and drive", who has not heard this phrase before? Well, for a podcast like tonight, it is rather "Don't listen and drive" as this edition rather is on the quiet side of the force. Nevertheless, it contains brilliant beauty all over the show, so not to miss out, if you also cherish more peaceful music, ambient that is. And it's also a tiny consolation for all of you not being at E-Day this weekend, as the first track is the first live act on stage, Ron Boots as Derelict Thoughts (Autumn Moon). But there are more contributors who make a great collection of ambient: Riz Masten (Girls Alive), Frore & Shane Morris (Blood Moon), Ambient Circle (Session 19), Carey Moore (Trout Ribs), as well as NFushigi and Cousin Silas (Midnight Radio Compilation Beautiful Julia).

Newtimers

It's always interesting to see, when artists pick up traditional elements in their music, but not sticking to it by copying the old style. Adding new thoughts and re-interpreting what was laid out by masters in their domain to build upon it, advancing to a modern style and age of music. The tracks from tonights playlist will surely remind you of the past, but sound like today, welcome to the future home. Tune in and listen to Sequential Dreams (Legacy), moonbooter (Live Eins),   Rewo (Zeppelins 2.0), MarcE (Forever Together), and DigitalSimplyWorld (Planet of the Butterflies).

Crack your egg

If this edition has anything to do with easter, it is some of tonight's artists live eastern from my place. No, it's quite about beatiful music tonight, so stash your eggs and pick up your bunny for a dance. We'll have a rhythmic ride along with tracks by Plasterdog and Smartfish (Pindaric), moonbooter (Live 4), Mateo Relief (Midnight Radio 37), Vadim Kotinskiy (Mood), Faris (Pause), and Abiz Sonko (Markarian 421).
