About: This track is a jam. I synthesized and pitch shifted vocals about the technological singularity. I recorded the track winter 2017 in a one day session in my Jam Studio in Offenbach.

USED EQUIPMENT
Main Sequence: Moog PolyMoog filtered with the Mutable Instruments Ripples Filter and sequenced (CV/Gate) with the Sequentix Cirklon hardware sequencer.

CREATOR 5:40

About: One of the first tracks for the 3L3C7RO COMMANDO album. July 2017 I built a small bedroom studio at home to compose some electro ideas. At this point I did not know that this would become a full length album. I produced and recorded CREATOR august/september 2017 at home.

USED EQUIPMENT
Drums: Elektron Analog Rytm; Jomox XBase09; My XBase had some problems with the knobs, so I recorded drum samples of the XBase09 and imported the samples into the Analog Rytm

3L3C7RO COMMANDO 5:55

About: This was the first finished production for 3L3C7RO COMMANDO. My first idea was to compose and produce a 12inch vinyl with 4 tracks. I recorded the pre master of 3L3C7RO COMMANDO august 2017 after a production phase of 3 weeks. I produced and mixed the track with headphones in my home studio.

OBSERVER 6:40

About: I produced the beat for this track with the Clavia Nord Modular G2 on tour in a hotel room spring 2017. Then in autumn 2017 I used it as a base for OBSERVER. I recorded the pre master of OBSERVER november 2017 in my home studio. The track was produced and mixed on headphones. The original recording was 7:45 minutes long. I had the feeling that the arrangement was a bit too long. For the album I edited a shorter version (6:40) of the pre master.

About: This track is one of my favorites. I don’t know why but I have a very strong connection to this track. I recorded this track january 2018 in my Jam Studio. It was a LIVE performance. I did the recording ONE time, that is how I mostly do it when I record LIVE JAMS. For me there is not really an option for a second recording because then it could become a rehearsal.

About: In november 2017 I prepared my Electro Live Set for a live gig at the club Fabric in London. DVS1 invited me to play a Electro Show at his release party of his new FABRIC MIX CD.
