  • Kevin Dellinger 2014 Update

    18 sep 2014, 23:13 av ilikecokekd

    It has been a while since I have made an update on Last.fm. I will update you on some changes. The official website,kevindellinger.com, is up and running. It took some time to complete. However, the website is fully functional and updated with all of Kevin Dellinger music. There are also other links to Kevin Dellinger visual art and ebooks. You can listen to the whole Discography of Kevin Dellinger by visiting - http://kevindellinger.com/music.html

    Many of my albums are available through other online vendors.
    cdbaby - http://www.cdbaby.com/Artist/KevinDellinger
    BandCamp - http://kevindellinger.bandcamp.com
    Google Play - https://play.google.com/store/music/artist/Kevin_Dellinger?id=Abfzqih5hxcrx5imtarkphfrt7m

    I am using cdbaby for my music distribution to get my music on iTunes, Spotify, and other major music retail stores. So far I only have 5 albums in major online retail stores. However, all of my albums are for sell on my website and bandcamp - Soon, cdbaby will have all of my albums as well. It is a slow process to get my music distributed fully on all of the websites. I have my album pages on my website fully integrated to give you maximum possibilities for purchasing.


    "Dance in Dream Time" is my new dance album. The recordings were completed in August of 2014. I plan on releasing this album on iTunes in November 2014. Like I said earlier I am updating my discography on the cdbaby store. I have also updated my music on Last.fm. Please scrobble my music on the website. Share my music with your friends.

    You can connect with me on my website. All of the social networking buttons are there so you can find me all over the internet. Important links like SoundCloud, ReverbNation, Grooveshark, Facebook, Twitter, Youtube - All of these can be found on my official website Home Page.

    Thank you for taking the time to read this update.
  • Ambient & Electronica by Michael Brückner - an update

    21 aug 2014, 13:54 av BruecknerSound

    Dear electronica fans,

    after a rather long absence from LastFM (may have been three years or even more) I'd like to report what happened in the meanwhile in my musical world.

    Since this has been quite a lot, I'll try to keep everything as brief as I can, rather hinting with some links at single events; if anyone should have any further questions, I'll be happy to elaborate in detail on anything, if requested...

    For those who don't remember me here (...or never heard of me in the first place) a brief introduction:

    I'm composing, producing and performing electronic music since 1992. While the center of my creative output is certainly ambient / atmospheric electronica, I've also streched out to any other electronic style I can think of, for example dance, drum'n'bass, new age, electro, Berlin School (space music), or those new names for old shoes like psychill, psybient or psytrance - but also pop, rock, jazz, even metal - and more. All in all, most of my albums feature an ecclectic mix of styles, and it's rather difficult to pin my stuff down to any specific genre.
    Maybe I can add that some listeners (and reviewers) compared some of my music to Robert Rich, Steve Roach, Klaus Schulze, or Future Sound of London, Underworld, sometimes even Aphex Twin and Mouse on Mars (all of which indeed are artists I'm very fond of...).

    During the past 22 years I have created more than one hundred (that's 100 ;-) ) albums (and full lenght albums at that - meaning at least 70 minutes, then again some are actually sets ranging between two and ten (!) hours of music...).

    Most of my music is self-released (You can still order any of my albums directly from me...). More recently, I'm happy to also have released some projects on different labels.

    An overview over most of my output can actually be found here on LastFM (last update was in late 2012 so far, but I'll maybe do another soon...):

    Michael Brückner - the (almost) complete catalogue

    Many of my albums also are on LastFM, and (still) most of them are pre-listenable from here (although I might change that as I will rerelease them via Bandcamp in the future...). See here:

    Michael Brückner

    OK, now where to start with what happened...?

    First of all, after many years of being laregly a very obscure artist with only the tiniest bit of followers, I've finally started to be recognized on a (slightly) larger scale; some landmarks that made me evident for me (for example) were:

    - being nominated twice for the Schallwelle-Award, a German award for electronic music; I didn't win, however reached number three twice, in the category "best album national" in 2013 and "best musician / act national" in 2014 (referring to the previous year always...) - actually doing better than some famous acts like Schiller or Klaus Schulze...

    - having one of my tracks inlcuded to the large Pete Namlook tribute CD box "Die Welt ist Klang" on CarpeSonum Records

    - receiving positive reviews, or interviews / features on various webzines, or even print magazines

    - being invited for collaborations with many artists, resulting in some long-term musical partnerships, like with drummer Tommy Betzler, noteably for his early 80ies electronic prog band P'Cock and his work with electronic pioneer Klaus Schulze on several large live events (plus, in more recent years, drumming in Tangerine Dream member Thorsten Quaeschning's project "Picture Palace Music")

    Then I'd like to highlight some album releases (not all, though) since 2012, in (more or less) chronological order; I'll link to YouTube trailers (as far as they exist), otherwise to Bandcamp (from where usually a preview file, and sometimes even whole albums, are streamable...):

    One Hundred Million Miles Under The Stars (2012)



    Eleventh Sun (2012)



    Naura (2013)



    In Letzter Konsequenz (2013)



    Thirteen Rites Of Passage (2014)



    Ombra - Revisited (2014)

    This release (a limited edition of 100 copies) actually includes my first ever industrially pressed CD - among other items...



    ...you can find more releases on Bandcamp, and more music on YouTube.


    From mid 2012 on also live performances became more regular (especially in 2013); here are some clips, again in chronological order (length and sound/video quality varies, but I think they at least will give You an idea...):

    RaumZeit Festival Dortmund, 2012



    Ambient Performance at BetterLife Akademie, 2013
    (...the whole of it, in two parts, actually)





    Live performance at Ritter Butzke (a club in Berlin), 2013
    (...now, that was an especially cool evening)



    Live performance at the church St. Peter, Frankfurt, 2014

    Finally, some links to reviews and articles about my music...

    .

    Well - this much for now; I'm aware it's much indeed, however please keep in mind that I had to make up for a long time, and in that time, there happened a lot.

    Actually, as much as I've put in here - it's only part of all that happened, and I could write at great length on many of those points at which I've just hinted here...

    In any case:

    Thanks a lot for Your attention, and if You've listenend to some of the music, I hope You did enjoy it!
  • F.ormal L.ogic D.ecay - "Løvstakken: a Sonorized Environmental Report"

    30 jul 2014, 21:31 av Entropiste



    From <R.i.p.> Anaemic Waves Factory stock still a few copies available for this F.ormal L.ogic D.ecay very limited Collector's Edition (only 21 pro-printed cdr-s in special oversize packaging) of "Løvstakken" album (published in standard edition by Dark Vinyl in 2001, limited to 700 copies): harmoniously composed by field-recording done on the namesake mountain during author's stay in Norway, processings of those recordings and music inspired by the sensations he felt through the memories of those days. Naturalistic ambient meets esoteric dark ambient and 70's Kraut electronics in an album which declares the human smallness lost in the embrace the Great Mother offers.

  • New releases by Tangent and Idlefon

    17 jun 2014, 21:46 av synctank



    Tangent: Transience [TA082]

    From Dutch duo Tangent comes their engaging sophomore effort ‘Transience’. An auditory montage of beatwork that blends subtly abrasive, mechanical rhythms with fascinating time signatures, scattered glitches, and nostalgic orchestral movements, that culminate into a caldron of latent kinetic energy and sophisticated electronic noir.

    Tangent navigates through changes in regularity, volume, and depth to create a texturally rich sound, blending harmony and dissonance into one moving landscape. Subtle movements that when taken together cover great distances. Carefully cultivated and positively enveloping, the sounds of ‘Transience’ seep into the subconscious and create macrocosms within the inner space.

    Available now on Compact Disc and Digital formats.

    Idlefon: Intensive Collectivity Known As City [TA083]

    Iranian producer Idlefon presents his debut album ‘Intensive Collectivity Known As City’. A haunting yet beautiful collection of soundscapes and ambiance, calibrating the subconscious and aligning the soul. Complex and intricate beats blend with ambient textural sounds, signed by distant voices and enticing melodies to create a wondrous world where responsibilities are disregarded and time is infinite. Dreamy, floating ambient music for your headphones at night.

  • The Sonic Seducer, Gary Numan, Shakes Sydney Into The Sea

    6 jun 2014, 09:26 av DrMojoRising

    Come sundown on the final day of May, 2014, a devout congregation of Numanites amassed at the Metro Theatre in Sydney, Australia to embrace one of the seminal creators of the synthpop genre.

    Athough Gary Numan is venerated as a synthpop deity, the omnipotent energy unleashed by the guitars was an unexpected surprise. In conjunction with the synthesiser squall, the overstressed reverberations from the electric strings (it woulda left many a hard rock act wincing) was something only to be felt, literally; the bombastic boom resonating through everyones bones at times was enough to rouse a comatose mortal or even the deceased. The sheer sonic energy of the show was mind-blowing and left me stunned, yet enraptured. The one big pop hit from the '80s he performed, "Cars" (I haven't actually listened to the track in years), packed so much punch, it as disparate as comparing your wildest masturbatory fantasy to the real deal. Even now, I still have no inclination to listen to the song through my high-end audio system 'cause I know it simply cannot emulate the live incarnation of the tune. Belying his years, Gary Numan is also the consummate artiste. I've experienced acts playing music out of their prime merely to bestow funds for their pension plans. But Numan's impassioned sedulity to his stage craft is perspicuous (see the one crappy photo I salvaged from my iPhone which at least captures the spirit of the show)! His undying love for playing it up to his aficionados is a wonderment and Numan's gestic gallivanting on stage was akin to a feline slinking about, seducing us with his wiles. And not to be overshadowed, the concinnity of the light show intertwined with the auditory buzz buffeting us was befitting of his electronic roots and was indeed conducive to inducing an epileptic seizure.

    Being somewhat the casual Numan devotee; only owning but a single compilation CD, my biggest disappointment of the eve was I hadn't explored his oeuvre sufficient to appreciate the gig to it's utmost. Nonetheless, if you're a diehard Numan fan or casual interloper, the concert was a stunning spectacle to be savoured at least once in a lifetime. If you prejudice Numan's melismata as being beyond your predilections, just open your mind to allow your visual and auditory senses to be stimulated to orgasm: just experience an intoxicating concert. If opportunity to witness one of his concerts is ever within reasonable reach... hey, don't vacillate; don't procrastinate… just fucking go! You'll be raving 'bout it to your friends for time immemorial.

    Not wanting to spoil the show for anyone who hasn't experienced it yet, but as an addendum for anyone interested, the playlist for the performance follows below.
