” After finding something he’d been looking for in an untidy room, Small Colin left Scotland and went to Jönkoping (that’s in Sweden) to make music for people to listen to before, after and during designing furniture. This is however not the only reason, it is also intended to impress his girlfriend and her friends. From his studio thru the medium of music Small Colin has already taken someone out of a coma, prevented 27 suicides, caused 3, mended 16789674 broken hearts, and persuaded one of gods angels out of having an abortion. He now lives on James Bond Island and has an heir to his throne in the form of a small volcano.”
In the beginning of march this year Small Colin released his first full lenght album called “Tape Productions” on the Cologne based label REC72. Tape players were used extensively in the recording of this album so digital recorded intruments were tranfered to tape then transferred back from tape. The tracks were then mixed, transferred to tape one last time, then transferred back to computer. This takes time and commitment.
The music that Smaill Colin creates is some kind of breezy minimal lo-fi, both happy and melancholic moods if offered. You get the feeling that the whole album is highly deliberate from first track to tha last, We LOVE this.

My alltime favorite duo Minilouge just released a new album on Cocoon called “Blomma”. The past week i have been listening to this masterpiece over and over again. I could not be happier when entering this deep futuristic journey through dimensions of electronic soundscapes and mantra liked beats. Just get the album, your life will get so much better. Enough said.
Get a feel of the album here:
Heres some of my favorite tracks from past releases.
God damn, never heard about B-Ju before. Apparently another unknown German producer that is killing it with music. His latest EP called “Cheap Shots” released on ERROR BROADCAST just blew me away. Fresh and lush summer electronic sounds. Just love the way how he uses vocal samples mixed with driven percussions and synths. Just get the EP for free HERE!
Track “Coffe Break With Two Cops” has looped my office more or less the whole day. So good!
I love netlabels and there is a vast variety of them. One of them is called TROPIC NETLABEL and is from Frankfurt/Germany and is releasing all music for free with the philosophy:
“to give a talented variety of artists a home for their music and bulit up a worldwide collective based on fine electronic music. Tropic is non commercial, open minded and colorful. No matter if its House, Electronica, Ambient or Techno, it has to be special with a warm feeling”
“We lost a lot of good netlabels the last years because the digital market is growing so much, but what about selling a few copies that nobody realizes indeed of reaching thousands with a netlabel and get love from all over the world. In these days of capitalism, promotion and marketing strategies, we are a embassy of community based and noncommercial music. Enjoy the music as always spread love!”
Tropics latest release “5 Years Of Tropic Netlabel” is mixed with basic channel style chords, ambient soundscapes and deep basslines that is the perfect combination for every dubtechno lover.

I have made a new mixtape called “Ad Astra Per Aspera”. Click HERE to listen. It´s a gloomy drone/acidjazz story with lots of different horns. Hopefully you enjoy it.
From the cold north and celebrating the founding of the label Mindblast Records DJ Scheißefritz’s debut album Raumfahrer is the first release. Inspired by Arpanet this feels like a wannabe soundtrack for 2001: A Space Odyssey. Retro-futurism at it’s best.
