Darker Days ahead, moving Wirds, flying Burritos, the Sun, the Sun, rising and hiding behind closed doors. Perception tries to escape but love is stronger. always stronger and growing. bright light on fright night. halloween. hollyweird. it was the sailor himself who brought it up, the sailoer himself who tasted the taste of waste and junk, loss and fear. no none was left to do the job, so he started a new business and moved forward. still the sun was hiding behind closed doors, but this time it was real.


Howe Gelb & A Band of Gypsies (2011)
You wouldn´t expect a Band of Gypsies alongside an American Singer from Tucson, Arizona, would you? Well, sometimes this Kind of strange Collaboration works out pretty fine, sometimes it fails, and sometimes it works perfect! Wich definately is the case here. A brilliant Album with a very unique Sound that catches you very soon. Howe Gelb has released about 50 (!) Albums since 1985, alone and with several Sideprojects, for Example the well known Band Giant Sand. All Albums are released on Owom Records. About his Music-Philosophy he says: 'I just liked the idea of having this kind of removed world, this brotherhood—the idea of a band being something more than a front person or dealing with the throes of fame."
His Voice and singing sounds often like a "Talkin-Blues" and reminds me a little bit on Lou Reed ...


Back to the Roots

Adrian Younge started as Hip-Hop Producer in the late 90´s. But the MPC alone wasn´t enough,so he taught himself to playin various instruments and learned to translate the melodies of his mind into the instruments. His Music is influenced by Italian Composers like Nino Nardini, Ennio Morricone, to name a few, and the Producers of the golden era of blaxploitation soundtracks, like Don Julian, Nico Fidenco, Lalo Schifrin...and so on. It has a psychedelic groove, for Example listen to "1969 Organ" wich sounds a bit like a lo-fi garage band track or early tracks of the doors. He still works as movie-editor and says that he has "Movies" in Mind while producing. Being an editor myself, i understand what he is talking about. Images are always strongly related to sounds.

Slow and steady...
...finally, things are slowing down, people are moving slower
summer arrives in the city. 
time to catch some fresh fahrtwind.

My collaboration with the sax-player is movin on, we practiced and it really worked out fine. It was (and surely will be) a great experience for me to listen to our connected sounds.
We do need time to develop our set and to do the "fine-tuning", but everything goes it´s way to hit the target soon.

made a new mix, uploaded soon.

Funker und Bruchpilot - More & Less Room

A skilled Mix through deep Instrumental Jazz and fresh and soulful Future Beatz from 
Cologne´s "Funker & Bruchpilot" 

Im looking forward to a new Collaboration (DJ & Musician) with an ambitioned professionel Saxophone Player from Cologne. Me on the Turntables, him on the Sax, we´re gonna play a combination of Deep Vibes from Jazz, Soul and Instrumental Funk, to some fresh and soulful Future Beatz. Live! We´re tryin go get the beatiful "Boogaloo" Bar as Location now. I´ll keep you informed about upcomig Dates.
The Day we met first we talked a lot about how much "room" he needs to give his Saxophone the right Effect within the Music i play on the Turntables. That inspired me to do this little Mix and to give it the this Name. I really like it, in the beginning it´s very jazzy, later it get´s more and more uplifting and ernergizing. Enjoy it!

Astral Travelling Part.1 by Funker&Bruchpilot




Leaving Earth far behind with Brooklyn´s Shigeto. The Album "Full Circle" was released on Ghostly International at the end of last Year. One of my favorite Beat-Producers at the moment, producing very organic sounding jazz influenced Beats with warm atmospheric Sound-Layers that remind me a bit on late 70´s avantgarde Jazz-Fusion. A weird and beautiful Blend! Just the right Kind of Music for ILWAB. Light up the Darkness.

Crazy Communists - Bulgarian Barbarian
Check out the pictures of an old friend from bulgaria:
Nicola Mihov

Met him in my student times in the rainy mountains of switzerland, the hot coast of italy, the dirty spooky catacombs of paris and the smoked out couches of cologne. When you meet him, spend time with him, you maybe come to the point where you could start thinking he is crazy, but in the end you realize, he is full of energy. He was always looking for pictures, he was CRAZY about pictures (i guess he obviously still is). When we were travelling, he and the other "bulgarian barbarians" as we named them kindly, made ME crazy because i experienced them like an unstructured floating through space and time. Today i remember those "barbarian"-encounters as very inspirative days!!! I only hear about Nicola "Das Huhn" through news about his recent photo-works and i´m always happy to see that he goes his way as a photographer. In his pictures i see the inspiration again.

Peace out to кокошка and Bushman from Bulgaria.

In Love with Turkey No.1

This Songs, espacially the first one, are dedicated to my highly appreciated Friend Galip. Reminiscing the Days when we were sitting in this small Puma-Cage called "Edit-Suite", during last Winter. While editing Images from Istanbul, we talked about Life, Love and Music (as always...;-) to warm ourselves a little bit. (Cologne Winters are cold, dark and looong!) He told me a lot about Turkey and "his" Istanbul, were he grew up in the 60´s.

 Selda Bagcan & Mogollar - "Cemberinde Gül Oya"
We discovered this lovely Song "Cemberinde Gül Oya"(Rose Lace in My Scarf), and i directly fell in Love with it. Listening to the Song, Galip remembered himself as a Young Man walking throug the Streets of Istanbul. We used it for a Collage of Istanbul-Images in the Documentary about the Istanbul based Writer Orhan Pamuk, we were working on back then.  

Dun Bugun Yarin Orkestra- "Havada Bulut Yo"

The second Song, "Havada Bulut Yok", we used for a Scene in Orhan Pamuks "Museum of Innocence" in Istanbul, a Magic Place were you definately have to go if you visit the City one Day. Sadly both Songs coudn´t make it into the Final Edit of the Documentary, because we had a Composer doin the whole Score, but i still can´t imagine better Songs for the Istanbul-Scenes.

Talking and dreaming about Istanbul...Turkey, Land of the Brave. Cologne loves you!

Songs for the Night No.02

Tape & Bil Wells "Fugue 3" (Immune 2010)


Tonight, a little bit too late, comes a huge little Minimal-Piano Track from Bill Wells and Tape., from the Album "Fugue". Both are signed on  Immune Records. The Tracks on the Album are the Result of a long Studio Recording Session in Tape´s own Studio "Summa", in Stockholm, Sweden. Words can´t tell what i feel about that one... Enjoy!

"Tape and Bill Wells first met in Stockholm while Bill was performing his music with The Concretes and Jens Lekman. Both artists were aware of each other’s work and upon this first meeting they spoke of collaborating together on a recording.
A year later Bill invited Tape to perform three concerts together at Triptych Festival in Scotland. During their visit a day was spent recording at Ca Va Sound in Glasgow. Those recordings were the start of something truly special. In 2008 Bill traveled to Stockholm to again perform some concerts with Tape and it was during this visit that a week was spent recording at Tape’s own Summa Studio. It was the recordings from this session that became Fugue. The four tracks selected were the ones where the music sounded like something completely of it’s own, something other than Bill Wells or Tape. With the use of piano, organ, Fender Rhodes, guitar, bass, electronics, drums and synthesizer Fugue is truly a unique and timeless recording from these legendary and prolific artists. Simplistic, searching and fragile. (Fluid-Radio)

Recording-Session for the Album "Pianotapes", released November 2010 on the Cologne based Label "Karaoke Kalk"

J´aime les Beats

"Nobody beats the Beats"   (Sonny B Recordings, 2002)
Two pretty obscure Space-Retro-Beats from the Copenhagen based Label Sonny B Recordings. The Tracks appeared 2002 on the very rare Compilation "Nobody beats the Beats", from the same named Musician-Collective formed in Danmark by Dj Typhoon and about fourteen (!) other Musicians and Producers. They were a very popular Underground-Act back in the Days and produced three Albums. Good Sounds, especially for that Time.

Mooncircling again...

40 Winks - It´s a Trip (Project Mooncircle, 2011)
Album-Snippet from April-Release on Project Mooncircle. Just beautiful melancholic  and flowering Beats, they really got Soul. Antwerpen must be as wack as Cologne..is there no Sun in this god damned Country?
40 Winks (Weedy & Padmo) are making Music since 2002 and in my Ears this is just the Way to do it. Deep Samples circling arround and playing with each other, perfectly arranged. Thät hits me from the Socks, as we say in Köllonia.
