Smooth - A life in minor
"A life in minor" - no matter, if you feel minor or major - is the latest collection of 27 brand new tracks i worked on the last 14 months with lots of love and passion. Dubtechno in many and versatile forms and variations, but also inspired and influenced by other musical genres.
Expect deep, atmospheric and melancholic Dubtechno created with intense build-ups and long fading outros for a calming and relaxing listening experience. All tracks have been handcrafted with lots of details and put together without interruptions between the tracks, so the album can enjoyed in one, single flow.
The intention of this release was to give melancholy and the feeling of minor a musical face. There is the background noise of life besides emotions fading like delays and reverbs within the music.Download this album on CYANDownload this album on Bandcamp

Smooth - Contemporary Past
Massively influenced and inspired by labels like "EchoSpace Detroit", "Deep Chord" and "Basic Channel", and by artists and acts like "CV313", "Model 500", "Maurizio" and "Yagya", in 2017 i felt a very strong passion to dive way deeper into the magic and the roots of Dubtechno.
My musical research led me to intensive and long build-ups, to minimal and calming sounds, to very lively atmospheres and textures, to weird acting effects, to time-shifting sequences and to a very special mood on the tracks. This album is definately ment as a hommage of a bygone, musical epoche.Download this album on CYANDownload this album on Bandcamp
