I’ll be working with a new distribution partner, and what that means for you (as a fan)

First things first

In the next few days/weeks you might experience something unusual when you stream or download my music from the countless stores and streaming services out there. It could happen that my releases appear as double entries, and it’s possible that you recognize missing songs and changed song order of album releases.

Wut?

That’s all because of the transition between 2 distribution companies. I transfer all my music from one to another, and they do not work in sync. One is faster then the other — with taking down and upping content — which is only one reason why I change partners. I’m quite unhappy with my former distributor, and the new setting is also better for you, as a fan.

Not everything changes

All my releases on Bandcamp remain as they are, and all of them remain on a “pay what you want” basis, even if that means ZERO.

So?

That’s it. Nothing that should concern you at all, I just wanted to let you know, just in case something seems odd to you. I’m pretty confident that things are much better for you and me after the transition has been done.

Enjoy my music everywhere as always, everything will be accessible all the time. Thanks for your ongoing support!

Thank You!

I’m not huge on Spotify, but every listener and supporter counts massively in my book. A single note can change the life of a single person, this is how I see it. If I have only made one person on this planet feeling better with my music: mission accomplished.

So, THANK YOU ALL (and click the image to check my Spotify artist page)!

P.S.: I know, I’m lagging on the album… it’s coming, no worries. It has to be perfect, you know… 😉

I do not sell my own music anymore

I decided to offer all my music for which I own the copyrights* for free, now and in the future. “Free” means all music I have on my own label (L2 Music) can be downloaded for as low as zero (all currencies, smiles preferred) or for whatever amount you think is right, in the best possible quality! There are no hooks, eyelets or hidden conditions. There is just music.

You can either stream my music for free via Spotify or stream and/or download at Bandcamp.

Bandcamp

*Digital downloads, not physical products, of course. I have no influence on the price of my music that I have signed with other labels, hence I can not offer this for free. But all of my albums are on my own label, and most of my non-dance-music productions.

Of course, I will still do paid remixes (and receive royalties for those), and sign my music to other labels, mostly dance music productions. But music on my own label (my albums etc.) will be free from now on.

Why am I doing this?

It’s simple, really. There is no point in asking you to pay for the download of music files anymore when you can stream it for free already. Those who like to listen to music in top quality (the audiophiles among you), there are the free or pay-what-you-want downloads at Bandcamp.

Nevertheless, I would like to ask each one of you to support me by becoming my patron:

Become a Patron!

Thank you, no matter if you’re just a listener or paying subscriber/downloader. You’re all equally valuable to me.

NAVIGATOR (6 Hour DJ Mix)

Listen and download here for free!

Dear friends,

this is something I wanted to do for a looong time, digging up rare, eclectic and often unnoticed gems of Electronica, Slow Rave and Deep House, some with soulful ethnic vibes, and create a DJ mix of it. It’s been a long process to collect and select, so there’s really a lot of work in this.

This is a completely free and uncommercial work for you to enjoy, but I want to ask you to support the artists involved, so please, check the tracklist and buy one or the other track (if you find it!). This is extremely well produced music of the highest quality and the people behind deserve more than just attention or listening to it. Go follow them on social media, Spotify, Soundcloud and whatnot, and again: please, buy some their stuff if you like it.

This is a 6 hour journey which I recommend to approach very open-minded and with attention. As mentioned, this is fantastic music. I call this “Navigator” because the purpose of it is to navigate you through an entire universe of vibes and sounds by artists from very different places. I think, despite the differences, it’s a very homogenic piece that can be considered as one.

The duration of it could navigate you through:

  • a full working day
  • a car, train, bus ride, flight or boat trip
  • a full night of love
  • a hike through breathtaking landscapes
  • a climb up a beautiful and challenging mountain
  • another kind of “trip” (be careful with drugs!)
  • a visit at your mother in law
  • an evening with friends by a cracking bonfire
  • a day on the beach
  • an afternoon in a cabin in the woods (minus the horror part)
  • lying in bed, planning how to save the world, while you watch rain drops hitting your windows

Whatever. You’ll know how to enjoy it. I hope you’re able to feel as good as I do when listening to it.
