Hi All EM fans,

Again a strange surprise, sadly Tiger Forest will not be playing at E-Live 2022. Something with a greencard and renewels etc etc. But man do we have a great artist that will fill his shoes.

Wolfram Spyra will step in as headliner and you know that it will be great. One of the best live acts you can get for your festival. So on the 12th of November he will close the day!

And we have the new Cosmic Gound in stock. And in 2 versions.
The normal CD version BUT! also a very nice double Vinyl (coloured) release!!
Check out the new releases section.

And the new Ramp is soon to arrive, so 2 brilliant releases that will make this fall a great time to listen to new fresh Berlin School.

----------------------------------------------------------
And both new Groove releases are now available as CD and as of tomorrow as download through our website and Bandcamp!!

Sint Bavo concert!!

Last Saturday we had a real blast during
Remy Stroomer & Ron Boots live at the Grote of St.Bavokerk, Haarlem.

It's always a pleasure and privilege to perform at a tremendous venue like the Grote of St.-Bavokerk Haarlem, and especially together and surrounded with gifted musicians, good friends and many wonderful people, carrying out nothing less than positive vibes.

I want to thank everyone who attended yesterday's event (around 150 people), all volunteers (without whom it would have been impossible to have a flawless evening), the sound and livestream guys, the Grote of St.Bavokerk crew, everyone who was part of the media attention and who did promotion for this event, and indeed all musicians who contributed on this unique event.

Unfortunately there was a serious issue regarding the live-stream's sound of Remy's set of the evening. We have no idea what caused this, and will sort it out within coming days. Remy hopes to replace the correct audio, but first need to see what is technically possible. We will keep informed everyone concerned.

It's always good times working together (and organize an event like this) with my dear friend and colleagues  It was a pleasure and wonderful experience to share this same stage ten years ago, as much as it was yesterday, and as much as it will be in 2032!

Feel free to share your photos, videos and stories!
Andre Stooker captured the afternoon and evening, so if you would like to have an impression of yesterday, be sure to check out his photos: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?vanity=andre.stooker...

New Releases
Cosmic Ground  -  Isolate - cd - 57442
Cosmic Ground -   Isolate -  =Double Vinyl version= -  85691




Behind the Cosmic Ground project is the key press Dirk Jan Müller, who in the last 30 years with his band Electric Orange in the area Psychedelic/Krautrock/Electronics has released a number of recordings. The idea for the project had existed since 2001. But it would take until 2012/13 for the first album to be realised.

But as early as 1990 to 1992 there was electronic music by Dirk Jan Müller in the form of cassettes, which were still common at the time. As with Electric Orange, Cosmic Ground is mainly used analog synthesizers and modular systems, mellotron, 1960s Farfisa organs, analog string ensembles from the 70s, as well as bass and guitar. The mostly very dark music is 99% electronic in nature, supplemented by some self-recorded atmospheres from different environments that have been electronically processed.

All recordings were made in the band's own studio and in Dirk Jan Müller's home studio in Aachen from August to December 2021. The 6 tracks on the album "Isolate" offer a musical spectrum from polyrhythmic sequencer lines combined with real tape echo, ambient and free format atmospheres to polyphonic and multiply modulated drones. All in the sound of the 1970s. You'll look in vain for preset sounds from digital synthesizers or the prefabricated loops and sequences that are common these days; analog sequencers dominate.

The cover artwork of the meanwhile 7th studio album was created for the first time by the French artist Thierry Moreau, known for his work for Univers Zero, Neuschwanstein or Heldon. It underlines the dark mood of the music.

 
 
Ramp - Happy Days are here to stay - cd - 83149



It's been a little while since i released the last ['ramp] album, and frankly i wouldn't have thought any new recording would ever see the light of day. hard to imagine that this world was a slightly different one when "no sleep 'til wilmersdorf" was released four years ago, and no one would seriously have guessed our world would take such a massive nosedive, right?

it is not only the dire prospects of future we are facing -- in some way or other, i also had to deal with the passing of one of the most crucial figures in my personal and musical evolution, cosmic hoffmann. in fact, it took me almost three years to come to grips with the fact klaus isn't around any longer. much of this cathartic mourning process is to be found on "happy days", and sometimes it even feels as if klaus was intervening from beyond (or elsewhere). come to think of it, i am even happier i managed to finalise a string of recordings made between the summer of 2017 and april 2022 -- and arrange them in a more or less meaningful way as an album of entirely new (and at the same time very old) music. in some regard it might be seen as a continuation of what was already present on "wilmersdorf". on the other hand, though, the music presented here took on a life of its own thanks to the recent events, and i must admit that i haven't made anything *that* doombient since my own "hoellenengel" album from 2004/05 (even though "happy days" is nowhere near as bleak, but that's only me, of course). honestly, i wasn't all too keen on taking that dark turn again, and i was perfectly happy to have left the gloomy reaches of electronic music behind a bit. well, it wasn't meant to be for long, was it?
