SunCatcher

I just noticed there was no activity here since March 2021. That will change for sure this year.

Silence is not always a bad sign is it :-) A 3 track EP entitled SunCatcher will be released early March and I am in the midst of mixing another concept. I don't know how many do read this newsletter, might see this when someone posts this sleeve on facebook before I do.

The sleeve for one out of four different download sets to come.

Ultraviolet (Diatonic)

The next single to promote the upcoming album The Cubic Temperature will be Ultraviolet. It will be made available in three download sets. One being the 'Pentatonic', a second 'Phototonic' and a third entitled 'Diatonic'.

The Ultraviolet (Diatonic) holds reworks of two of my favourite pieces of classical music. 

Gymnopedie Nr 1 is a song from French composer Erik Satie and Canon in D by German composer Johan Pachelbel.


Two videos were created in order to promote these covers

Ultraviolet

The next single to promote the upcoming album The Cubic Temperature will be Ultraviolet. It will be made available in three download sets. One being the 'Pentatonic', a second 'Phototonic' and a third entitled 'Diatonic'.

The latter one will be a special one, because it holds reworks of two of my favourite pieces of classical music. 

Gymnopedie Nr 1 is a song from French composer Erik Satie. This is a song with an atmosphere which is hard to describe, melancholic, dark and deep, yet still with a lot of hope in it. Second is a joy for the ear, Canon in D by German composer Johan Pachelbel. Such a heart warming set of layered strings, a wonder in itself how these musicians were able to create this. This is a song that is making me happy everytime I hear it, an indescribable beauty from beginning to end. I take it after hearing this many of you now understand my love for 'sequences'

I took a risk by releasing this, can't judge if fans will dig it or not, but, I did it as I believe music should not have boundaries.

El Que

October 2nd will be the day that Alfa Matrix will release their Deutsch Amerikanische Freundschaft tribute entitled 'Wir Sind DAF'.

Humble 808 DOT POP is included with a cover of El Que, which was originally featured on the 1981 album Gold Und Liebe. An album which still is a true masterpiece considering the fact it is nearly 40 years.


The cover is in the typical style of 808 and I am happy to warm you up with a little teaser: 808 DOT POP - El Que

No doubt that many of us were struck by lightning about the passing of Florian Schneider, a man without whom... well...I guess words are not needed, so I did something else to say goodbye to this super human being. 

Simply click the picture below and feel free to share and download this short piece of music, in memory of Florian, one these man machines.
