Happy new year! This is an advance track of my upcoming second solo album, due sometime in 2018 (this time for real). In the last few days I finally found the time to finalise and mix all eight tracks. For me, this is always the most unpleasant and tough part of making music. Frankly, I don’t know why I post exactly this weird, epic and quite long piece as advance. But somehow it seems to fit the time.
Instruments and gear used:
Akai VX-90 Analogue Synthesizer
Fender Jaguar Baritone Custom Bass guitar
Fender Jazz Bass
Hollow Sun Optomotron
Logic Pro X (Recording, Sequencing, Samples), Zoom TAC-8 and Alesis Multimix 8)
Zoom H2N field recorder
Loops recorded with a Fender Jaguar Bass VI (and, partially, with a Fender Jazz Bass) and a Boss RC20XL on a Sunday – for your listening pleasure, re-use, remix, re-whatever. Let me know if you use them.
Stoffel and I have just released my new album on Der kleine grüne Würfel. There’s not much more to say here, as almost everything is said over here. I am looking forward to hear how people like it.

Thanks so much for all the positive feedback that reached so far via Facebook, Twitter and comments over at the release page. Here’s a nice interview with Mo. from phlow magazine (in german though).
