I just remastered my old 90’s remix/cover of Klaus Schulze called “Brave new sequence”. Now it has fuller and a bit brighter sound. Check it out!
Such a strange and long process it is for me to create my own music nowadays. Remixing other artists are usually not a problem. I tend to pin that down in a week or two. But my own stuff.. can take months to finish. I probably spend around 80-90% of that time testing out different arrangements, then throwing them away when listening to it the next day. Testing different drums, different sounds, different basslines. Then once in a while, just maybe.. if all the stars are correctly aligned, I get a sudden flash of inspiration and rebuild and finish the whole track in a couple of hours. I just wish those flashes could come more often. I need a break from life so I can make more music. Oh well..
I have added three older remixes to the soundcloud player, located to the right. My ambient remix of Mystical Sun – Nebulous mist (unreleased), and my remix/cover versions of Jean Michel Jarre – Zoolook and Klaus Schulze’s Brave old sequence.
Junkie XL teams up with semi god Jan Hammer resulting in an orgy of 80’s synths and beats. The cheeky Miami Vice video is just too good to handle. Don’t miss the Jan Hammer synth solo at the end.
Here’s another amazing short. Nuit Blanche, directed by Arev Manoukian explores a fleeting moment between two strangers, revealing their brief connection in a hyper real fantasy.
The gift is an amazing short story part of the Phillips Parallel lines project.
Sad news. The legendary manager, producer and artist Malcolm McLaren died of cancer earlier today. I found a snippet on youtube from an interview on Enough Rope. What a fascinating character he was.
I really really love Ricky Ryan’s new EP. It has a special laidback, “beach party under the palm trees” feel to it that I simply adore. Close your eyes and you are there… feel the warmth.

I still have a bunch of older music that I will add to the site during the next weeks or so. Also I got ideas for some more pages and info that will be added soon. In the meantime I’m working on a new original track, which is kind of exciting because it has been a while since I did something of my own. When it’s good enough to show to the world I’ll add a demo here (or technically on Soundcloud – which is a really good site).
What a great track! 🙂
