For everything there is a first time: making your first track, releasing a first record, and writing a press-sheet for the first time. One a bit more exciting than the other ;))
As words are not so important, and only the music counts, we still wanted to give you a bit more insight into our tracks. So here we go:
‘Seven Changes’ came after reading an article of a teacher of anthroposophy, we believed this suits well for our start as artists. Every Seven Years You Change. Most cells in your body are renewed over a period of time. Does your personality change, too? ARE you the same person now that you were fifteen years ago? In fact, are you the same person you were just seven years ago?
‘Moon Waltz’ started out by messing around with several jazz samples, without having a real intension of making a track with it. After a while it sounded quite nice and eventually it came out as a sort of rhythm that formed the basics of it all. The name ‘Moon Waltz’ explains the atmosphere that surrounds the track, giving it a moody alienated feeling at some points.. For a track that’s been made almost a year ago, it’s very cool to finally see the light.
If you’re still awake after reading this we want to thank Mathias for his great remix and continuous support and for starting all this!
Hope you’ll like it and thanks for listening!
Hello listeners, blunt heads, fly ladies and prisoners,
This is the future of the music industry. Not the music, just the idea of the artists writing their own PR faffle. Next year I’ll probably have to carry my own bags on tour too.. tragic.
I have had a few years of working on other projects and shuffling about in loose trousers, but now I feel the time has come to release some more music for feet and floors. What I should say is that every time I tried to write techno/house/moonbeat in the last couple of years, everything came out as shitty tech-house.. The brain was just in an alternate mode, a mode for classical music and melody, but now it seems to have come back to techno so I here present some of its recent outpourings.
It belched out Polka the first night I got back to Scotland, having left London. Baba Yaga is named after a sinister-as-hell witch from a Russian story book we had as kids (check http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Baba_Yaga) clearly designed to traumatise young minds. My traumatised mind made this tune, so it has come full circle. Mu is slower, for lazy, emotional dancers.
I hope you will enjoy them and the excellent Sons of Tiki mix of Polka that accompanies them.
