“Tram Komputer” out on Zanderhythm

Tram Komputer is the first compilation put together from a vast number of eight-track-sessions recorded at Vodor L. Zeck‘s Studio over the last five years. On a regulary basis Vodor L. Zeck, DBH and Octobird (and who ever else wanted to join in) came together, simply to create portions of energy made with electronic machines, press record and catch some magic.

The tracks captured on this tape were cut and edited as less as possible and then mastered by Octobird. While all these sessions over the years spit out a vast variety of sounds and styles ranging from Hi-Speed Acid to Trippy Downbeats to Speed-Ambient, this first release represents the more melodic Brain Raves.

A special note of thanks also goes out to Vertical67 for the Tape Cover Design visualizing the different Tram stations it took to get to the Zanderythm studio in Berlin Marzahn.

Octobird Salad #4 | Unrestrained Sphere Diving

Warp Records just rereleased B12’s Time Tourist Masterpiece. A-Ton Records keeps going on to release the Chronicles of The 7th Plain. Who is nobody else than Luke Slater, rather known for driven Techno Bangers.
But these classics are a dreamy proof of how much warmth can be wiped out of a digital DX7 Synthesizer from the early 80s. And this heritage miraculously continues into present days with artists such as Reedale Rise, Stereociti or Charlton.

Always nice and deep, but not a bit pretentious!

Baikonur EP | out on Pr0gramma Records

Octobird’s latest EP just got released on Pr0gramma Records.

“With a progressive blend of uncanny melodies and warping harmonics, the Baikonur EP feels almost like a computer data process that somehow got itself locked into techno rhythms. The organic timbre even lies oddly between raw synthesis and heavily processed acoustics. These binaries ultimately balance but provide a mysticism that uniquely destabilizes the listen. Particularly Baikonur and The Gate exemplify this eccentric mix of evolving musicality and an odd sense that it’s all just data being filtered through melodious substructures.”

This is Octobird’s second EP release after last year’s 1st of Octobird.

1st of Octobird

Happy 1st of Octobird!!!

You may know him under his monikers Loom or Kinskop. You may know him as part of the Various Vegetables Crew. You may have realized him as the eight-armed Discjuicer and and Soundbird on the Various Vegetables Radio Show.

….and now you may realize, that he makes tunes, too.

A little more to the Floor! A little more Acid drowned.
And as the 1st October is  a holiday from now on, you can
download the thing for free.

Wave your Tentaclles in the air and say “Oh, Yeah!”
