Time to Focus. My new album is out!

August 25, 2017  |  Blog, Focus, Music

Finally it’s August the 25th and my third full-length album has been released. I thought I should write a few words about how it came to be.

My first album 64 was produced and released by myself way back in 1996 and my second one came out on a German label in 1999. The plan was to finish number three a couple of years later, at the latest. I actually finished some tunes but everything changed when I discovered the club scene in 2001. After that I produced mostly electronic dance music.

After a while people and labels in the club scene started to ask me if I wanted to do remixes for them. That sounded like fun so I did quite a lot of that, for quite a few years. I also released a bunch of EPs with my own dance music, on my own label and on other people’s labels. But somehow I never really managed to produce enough good tunes to fill up an entire album. Then a few years ago I though, enough is enough. This remixing business wasn’t doing anything for me anymore and I had kind of reached a plateau with my producing skills. Then about three years ago I got into modular synthesizers and suddenly I had lots of inspiration to make music again. In just a couple of months I produced 3-4 good tracks. The idea for a third full-lengther came into light again.

The result is Focus. I hope you like it.

Here is the official press release
