Another Red Planet

My remix of Narcotic 303's track Red planet made it to a free EP, released by net-label Deep in Dub. I like the company of the other remixers, and my track is number nine, it was intented to be a very ambient interpretation of the original creation.

Please enjoy.

Looking Back (While going Forward)

I recently decided to do a re-release of my EP Looking back while stepping Up, originally released for free as mid-quality mp3's through the netlabel Mephtik, back in 2008. This blog existed back then too, and I recall promoting the release via this venue, among other places.

Originally this EP were released for free under a Creative Commons license, I decided last month that I thought they could be online under my self-managed Bandcamp site. This time in full quality, as intended. After looking through my archives, I managed to find the music, together with unreleased outtakes.

These were the liner notes, written for the original release, by game music enthusiast Jayson Napolitano:

"We have a special treat for listeners with this release. We're proud to present Suecae Sounds out of Sweden with this beautiful 3-track EP.

The opening track, "Jag Som Ingenting" is a mystifying vocal track with pumping electronic beats, gorgeous belltone arpeggios, and undeniably addictive vocals. It is truly a pleasure to listen to.

"Inside These Walls," on the other hand, has some of the trappings of traditional techno, providing a melancoly atmosphere. The chorus section really stands out with heavy percussion and bass notes. "Watching While the World Goes By" rounds the EP off with a busy ambiance created by constantly progressing percussion and a contemplative synth line.

We hope you enjoy listening to this EP as much as we have. We look forward to hearing what comes out of Suecae Sounds in the future."

Broken Hearted Jubilee

I have longed for so long to see this album go public. Now it's here, and I know I will have to listen to and come back to this, many times in the future to come. Originally this was to be titled Catholicon, but due to several reasons, this is now live as Broken Hearted Jubilee.

Diazo writes:
"I share this album as a journal of my life; honest as I can recall and most definitely skewed into my own perspective. I have tried my best to retell melodically the fall of a relationship, the emotions, blame, and sorrow that follow. Perhaps even the glimmer of hope that rest beneath it all."

I know of no artist that is able to do what Diazo does, in what appears as effortless blending of disparate styles. Playful yet sad and emotional. Like a broken clockwork, skewed in precisely the right way.

Nils Frahm's Gift

This live performance by pianist and composer Nils Frahm left me speachless. So it felt fitting to pass this on to you, this special christmas day.

This was performed in St John-at-Hackney Church in July this year.

I will say nothing more then leave you with these fifteen and a half minutes work of art.

Two for one, the Alpha 3 sale

It is december 2013. To commemorate the end of the year, I have a little offer for readers of this sparsely updated blog.

If you buy my EP Alpha 3 via Bandcamp, and contact me via mail before 2013 ends, I will set you up with a free download code to give to any relative or friend of yours.

Also, I was made aware of a short review on website supermelodic tracks - a few kind words by overall nice guy Ugo Capeto. He ends with these words:

"I wish the album were longer. How's that for a compliment?"
