Disasteradio - Charisma

It's been a long time since I posted some godly stuff on this nice little page. Years went by ... and I discovered decent music here and there. Nice soundz. Yupp ... decent music. Yes ... nice. Decent. Music. Nice. Yes ... uh. It felt like there is nothing that can shock my socks anymore. This blog died.

Holy macaroni! You need some superpower to reanimate dead things in this sluggish part of the universe. To hit the freaking nail: Disasteradio is the magical man who revitalized my dead bloody body! I stumbled by accident into the cover you can see above. First thought: "Who is this pretty 80s boy ... this charismatic lovemachine ... this lovely slacker?". Instant download. Press play: You Win is the opener and the beginning is pure electro; tha baseline and tha clapzzz. And then ... a bright synthesizer appears, shining in your ugly face. The breaks in this song are amazing: everything is fluid and so we are gliding easily into the crazy refrain at 1:10. Luke Rowell is the name of this sexy synthie-beast. And he sings. Yes ... he sings like a fallen angel. In the middle of the song I already was amazed by the lighthearted vocals and melodies; also the professional sound impressed me. There is more to come ... the mindblowing solo at 2:30 ... sweet Moses! This guy is playing right from the heart. Goosebumps Time! Later I watched live videos of Disasteradio @ Youtube. Luke is pure retro-energy, a dancing package of 90s-nostalgia. There will be a new tour soon ... don't miss this, folks.

I could go on forever ... could write about every single track. Every one is a unique gem with his own feeling and drive. But one thing is for sure: All of em' are perfectly crafted. For me Disasteradio is the saviour of electro music. He is highly professional and innovative. He is funny. He is no faker - this guy LOVES the 80s / 90s - you can feel it in every base-drum and riff. I waited aeons for this; Charisma amazed me like no other record over the past years. Finally there is an artist with beautiful, catchy tunes that are inspired by oldschool computer music and the glorious time of our childhood ... with enough innovation, professionalism and charisma ... with humour and heart. I put all my hope into Mr. Rowell. If there is a future for electro-music ... then this is the man who does the job. Excuse my bad language - but fuck Nullsleep, Daft Punk or The Human League. Disasteradio is ready to take over the world ... a young nerd from New Zealand, who "wasted" his childhood on synthesisers and ALF. God bless him!

By the way ... my fascination doesn't stop here. Not only the music is epic ... wait ... let's write it like this: I love "space-bars". You know ... what is more amazing than the scenes of 'Star Wars', when Luke is visiting the Cantina? All the fantastic creatures. The whole atmosphere. Also the movie 'ARENA' (old Sci-Fi) was a joy. I love the genius 'Fallout'-videogames. I love 'The Hitchiker's Guide To The Galaxy'. I love dolphins, who got their own religious cult! I love the 80s / 90s more than anything else. Now watch this:

Holy grandmother of GOD.  DOWNLOAD CHARISMA NOW!

 With ease this masterpiece gets TWELVE of TWELVE I'm-The-Baby-Buttons! YOU WIN!

Holmes - Holmes EP

Slow 8-Bit! Being is simple. Life is simple. The modern world is complex, spastic and confusing (most of the time). But the natural, straight being is simple. Truth is simple. Everything just IS. Very, very easy. Perhaps Holmes knows what I'm talking about, because his first release is pure being. Look at the cover: This fellow don't try to be a badass. The minimalistic beauty of this work is amazing. While other people are trying to create something big, with big covers, big music and a big ego... Holmes gives a damn. All needless waste is missing here, and this simplicity is so gorgeous. Let's get back on tha carpet, brothers and sisters. These slow, warm chiptunes (London Sketch 1, London Sketch 2 and London Sketch 3!) will lead you back to the source of all being. Sober. Uncomplex. Direct emotions!

"To see the world in a grain of sand, and to see heaven in a wild flower, hold infinity in the palm of your hands, and eternity in an hour." - William Blake

This album is like a walk in the empty streets of 1880's London, while the rain is falling on a warm summer night, dripping like god's tears over the mossy cobblestone-pavement. I've heard that this great EP is heavily inspired by the talented bloke called Monovfox, and yes, the classical touch reminds me of him - and like Mono, it also sounds to me like the Minecraft OST. Jippie! Come with us...

3/3 Sherlock Pipers for you!

Nullsleep - Electric Heart Strike

The quality of this release is marvelous. No wonder, Nullsleep is one of the best known 8-Bit artists of this weird world. His live-shows are legendary. His albums, too. His Electric Heart Strike contains some glitchy, ruff tunes (Dirty ROM Dance Mix), fast, pumping space-race OSTs (Destination Tomorrow), happy, catchy melancholia-hymns (Ballistic Picnic - plz watch the live video on YT!) and a lazy, lovely opener (Her Lazer Light Eyes). The last two are larger-than-life. If you love 8-Bit music, and you don't know these evergreens yet... you are a cat with two legs. Get this album, hobbling rat! Just a joke. I can't force you towards your bliss.
That's all. Why I should write more? Ballistic Picnic and Her Lazer Light Eyes are perfect summaries of the lovely, godly 80s nintendo-feeling. When God says "perfect" he means PERFECT. Don't waste your time by going to work or by learning for your idiotic, close study. Take a special holiday now. Get your last dollars, buy tons of frozen pizza at your supermarket, wear your old Hero Turtles-pyjama, get your Nintendo Entertainment System out of your bloody basement. Hear this two songs. Eat pizza until your stomach is hurting. Hear this two songs. Smile. Life is easy. Your childhood was easy. Teleport yourself into the greatest era of your being. Nullsleep is THE soundtrack of your forgotten yesterdays. Pizza. Hero Turtles. Hot Pockets. Mario and his racoon-suit. This two songs. What do you need more? Be happy. You are a part of a great thing.

All my love goes out to Nullsleep. God is feeling your tunes, bro!

1/1 Hot Pocket with sunglasses for this record!
