I just uploaded my album Focus to Choon. What is Choon? In their own words: “Choon is a music streaming service and digital payments ecosystem—designed to solve the music industry’s most fundamental problems. Choon allows artists to earn cryptocurrency for every stream of their tracks.”
Listen to the one-hour mix I did for Dikommmusic. I play tunes from my latest album Focus together with some other stuff I’m listening to at the moment. Check it out. My mix starts about one hour in.
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.

Seems like it’s not up on Beatport or Juno Digital just yet.
