This Friday, Stand with Bandcamp in Support of Immigrants/Basic Human Values (by buying my music)!

And so all day this Friday, February 3rd (starting at 12:01am Pacific Time), for any purchase you make on Bandcamp, we will be donating 100% of our share of the proceeds to the American Civil Liberties Union, who are working tirelessly to combat these discriminatory and unconstitutional actions.

This means, when you buy my music at bandcamp on this Friday, 15% from what you pay will go to the American Civil Liberties Union

The American Civil Liberties Union is a non-profit organization whose stated mission is “to defend and preserve the individual rights and liberties guaranteed to every person in this country by the Constitution and laws of the United States.” Short: they were the ones that sued Donald Trump, and they deserve all our support. Plus, you get some great music.

Here’s something to get you started with, my latest album from 2014:

 

85% of what you pay for my music will go to me. Also not a bad thing, if you ask me. 😉 Thank you!

Babylon Revisited | Remix Pack | Open Remix Project

Babylon Revisited | Remix Pack | Open Remix Project

First of all, this is the original track which I’m offering you to remix:

This remix project is open for everyone, meaning: everyone who feels the tune and would love to remix it may do so. There are some rules attached to that, of course…

RULES/TERMS

  • You’re totally free regarding the style, length, tempo, keynote(s) of your remix. Do with the stems whatever you like, or add your own composition.
  • The provided stems are under copyright of L2 Music (my label), and they’re only to be used for this remix project. All rights on this are reserved, so use for other purposes is strictly prohibited.
  • This not a remix contest or competition! I will release ALL good remixes in form of a full remix release called “Babylon Revisited”, no matter how many it’ll be in the end. If your remix meets (my) quality standards it’s gonna be released in all important music stores in the world.
  • I will share 50% of all net revenue of sales with you.
  • When your remix is not part of the release, you’re free to offer it as a free download. Selling it is not allowed.
  • Please, submit your remix UNMASTERED, meaning: no compression, no limiting, no maximizing on the MASTER BUS! Please, leave at least 6db headroom, because I will master it before release. Submit a 48khz/24bit WAV file. Other formats will not be accepted.
  • Submit by uploading your remix to your SoundCloud, make it PRIVATE and DOWNLOADABLE (just as the remix pack files), and send me the link to it (and ONLY ME!). I understand that you’re excited about your remix to be heard by the entire world. But when everyone knows it already the thrill for the release is gone. Balloon > needle > PUFF!
  • Submission deadline for your remix is: 30th of June, 2016. No exceptions. It’s a hell of a work to get the release properly set up and on the way, so I really can’t accept anything after that date.

Last but not least: original tempo is 121, keynotes are (basically) C major and F major. When your remix is a different tempo, please, make sure you use the best time-stretching algorithm you can get a hold of. Same goes for pitch shifting. 😉

You agree to the rules/terms above by downloading the following remix pack:

Out now: Ryan Sullivan – Far From Here

Aaaaaand we have another smasher out this week!

l2music_fb_release_banner

L2 Music’s 003 EP “Far From Here” offers a powerful pair of tracks by talented South African producer Ryan Sullivan. The title track features well-rounded layers of sound that cover multiple levels of space, creating a full yet intricate soundscape that is finely pieced together. The elements of tech give a bit of edge to the seamlessly flowing rhythm, creating a finished, balanced result. “Open Your Mind” is another balanced and beautifully produced track that begins with a dark intro, taking you under from the very start. Deep and funky highlights are added slowly, pulling the track up from the depths and into a rolling groove. Its easy flowing energy evolves softly, taking the listener on an all encompassing journey that combines light and dark into one.

ANNOUNCEMENT: L2MSC – The Blue Series

l2music_blueTired of “Café Del Mar Vol. 1729″ or “Buddha Bar Your Mother”? What about some real deep and innovative Ambient, Psychill and Electronica from your label of trust (that would be us)? We think that’s a great idea, and that’s why we plan to release amazing compilations under the label’s new “Blue” flag.

We’d love you, the advanced producer, to send us your demos! As soon as we collected enough ass-kicking material we’re going to release the first one.

Also, “Blue” will be our new general color for all releases in that genre, meaning: we’ll release EP’s, singles, albums and whatnot under this. Again: send us your stuff!

Interview mit Dieter Meier (YELLO)

Dieter Meier von Yello hat eines der klügsten Interviews gegeben, dass ich seit langem lesen konnte. Darunter Statements wie dieses:

Ja, es gibt Streamingportale wie Spotify. Da macht die Industrie auch wieder den Fehler, dass sie nicht transparent ist. Man weiß nicht, welches Geld woher kommt und wie es verteilt wird. Wenn du eine Million Mal gespielt wirst, verdienst du zehn Euro. Man weiß also nur eins: dass man im Grunde nichts bekommt. Es wird oft gesagt: Heute wird mit Live Geld verdient. Aber wenn du unterwegs bist als neue Band und 300 Leute sind im Publikum – und da hast du es schon ziemlich weit gebracht – dann rentiert sich das nicht. Dabei ist Streaming eigentlich ein wunderbares Medium und es wäre ganz einfach, die Einnahmen transparent zu verteilen. Es ist einfach ungerecht, mal abgesehen von der Geldverteilung: dass der Musiker nicht einmal weiß, was er überhaupt für einen Mehrwert schafft!

via 08.09.2014: Demokratisch heißt nicht gratis (neues-deutschland.de).

Ich bin auch auf Spotify vertreten, sowohl als Künstler — gleich 2 mal, als “Vogelmann” und “Ingo Vogelmann”, was ich selbst Schuld bin, übrigens — als auch als Label. Als Label werde ich meinem Distributor sagen, er möge dort nichts mehr veröffentlichen, weil ich Spotify für Verbrecher halte. Präziser: Betrüger und Diebe.
