||..sharing support: buy LSS - An Ocean Above The Sky @ Juno!
review: The legendary hero of the German underground Stephan Laubner aka STL presents the '50th mind & soul sound installation' from his Lunatik Sound System on Something Records: which has been in operation since 2003. Laubner's deep techno over the years has appeared everywhere from Echocord and Perlon through to Silent Season and Smallville, but this long running moniker is dedicated to his expansive ambient works is best put himself as 'destined for far-out late night rituals and deep laid-back chills.' These haunting and nefarious drones incorporate spacey Radiophonic Workshop like sci-fi elements at times, while others utilise avant-classical elements. The sombre vibe of the album is contrasted by some of the most hilarious track titles, such as "A Man Grooves Always On Peak" or "Sunless Days On Desert Island" which add to its overall allure. We've always known that despite the gripping nature of Laubner's music, he's never really taken himself so seriously. More incredible work from one of modern electronic music's true masters.
||A small & humble >bandcamp page< has just been created. It will carry just a few selected personal artist releases ( really not much, nor plain everything!) It's a small place basicly for 'Fans' and won't replace my & every downloads, via all web download shops.
||Out now in digital stores:
Lunatik Sound System - An Ocean Above The Sky - Something DGT Series 50
Today is the release date of my latest LSS album. It should be in stores already, or will show up ww very soon. An Ocean Above the Sky has been made in the last months and should be best listened at chill moments and in complete form. It's number 50 of the DGT catalogue, so i hope you still enjoy the LSS cosmos and will be able to join the latest ambient trip as always within personal meaningful moments.
The 50th mind & soul sound installation from Lunatik Sound System on Something records is surfacing in form of an expansive trippin Ambient album and is destined for far-out late night rituals and deep laid-back chills. It's a mixture of spacey folk drones up to dark and sleepy, yet peaceful minded moments, that function without any words and earthly normalities. Empty yourself to dig thru it, an ocean of sound is awaiting your check in at open minded terminals with small music-to-sense neuroconnectors. These homesome vibes were made with ambiental devices ranging from cello and tabletop guitar to modular machines and carefully operated analogue synth and supporting tone supplies. Stephan Laubner's 'An Ocean Above The Sky' release fits perfectly for doing well in solitary modes while drifting among the stars and distant places. This release will hopefully find it's way to like-minded attenders to generate calm- and back buried lucidities plus meaningful slow-evaporating good times. Now, have a great deal listening to DGT Series 50 with all it's hidden emotions and fore surfacing secrets in front of your captivated ears and the mind's eye. Bon voyage & enjoy!

||Yes - nature has fully awakened. Recording Fields is the thing to enjoy the most lately (already working on a new nature series release). Makes much sense again after finishing the ambient album. And in the evening some shortwave action... me, myself and i, over and out. best wishes =)
||A new background and index image has been made. A bit Yoda-like look overall. It was inspired by early morning nature trips and fits to most of the sounds here. Maybe it can give a certain amount of contrast and an welcome alternative to many other office-vibe webcorners. I've made this design choice yesterday and guess i'll stick with it for a while.. ps: the website is best looking at dim evening & at night and on full size monitors i find...
||Hi KidZzz - i've just put my new album online here! An Ocean Above the Sky will come out in a month in digital stores (28.5.2017). More infos soon and later. You can however preview the snippets and everything on my site from now on. Hope you enjoy..greetings.
||Folks, here some mixed matter again quickly. Two selfmade mixes that appeared last year and now became unaccessable due to my website structure.. here are the direct links again:
..and 2 other superb (no)brainers in addition:
||moin moin, certain things in life are easy, so don't forget to dial in some good vibes while surfin in wide oceans -> music <-
||hey, some things out of the pocket:
- An Update:: ..or look in the not so distant future: There will be 3 new vinyls coming on other labels. All 3 contain STL content and will hopefully come out this year. One is on 'Blundar' - a label from Malmö sweden, which focus lays on the music and not much hype & words. You can hear snippets at Juno already - just like those previews for another release on the label 'Synthetic.Gold'. Info at Juno - it's basicly a selection i've made together with Richard from SG and this vinyl includes some good proofed moments from the past. Syntax Error will be on it as well - a track i've made long ago and only was surfacing once on a netlabel release low-key.. check juno please! the third release is in the pipe for almost a year now. The label is 'Dark Matters' which i guess struggles a bit with several things - so i hope bests and that the vö will come to light not so far from now!
- hmmm:: :-/ I don't know why so many things in Life are meaningless to so many people. As it seems, some must think their whole Life has no meaning. It seems to be a sad thing - truly... hopefully there is hope! Or some still need to find something, but let's face it on the fly: just because somebody only fuck with his own all the time, doesn't mean everyone else does the same right?! Or in different words: fucking with everything like it don't mean a thing - the way some do to theirselfs - creates just freak environment and endless non-sense. The idea to respect yourself and people around you a bit more, alone would give a bit more meaning to everything. And i think having fun and joy can become more true - not only a crazy game on a 'dis-respecting schoolyard'. Probably some will say fuck it, but i don't give a damn. ... however these are just a few cents this eve, that many should know already and i shouldn't talk only to 'punk kids' here, right :)?
- Still limited offer:: Something packages are still for sale at the price of 200€ ( including free shipping within the EU ). And YES, every package includes the complete Something Vinyl Series Catalog, ranging from number 01 up to 29! Even the sold-out items are included - ja. So it is a chance for people wanting to have every SVS release for theirself. Although i haven't sold a lot of these packages - the number of overall packages is very low. Many sold-out ones are very low stock and i am scratching on my personal collection with it. Every Vinyl, however, is new / unplayed and is coming fresh out of the box from the pressing plant. Some are in place in those boxes since many years actually...
- peace over and out:: Not sure how many people still visiting and checking my stuff here at this website. The response is very low and there is not much feedback. On the other hand this place here is pretty old fashioned, without social media activity. so it feels like it wa years ago @ start: someone is doing his thing and the rest is into the blue. Means i make music cause it's my thing and a true luv. I will stop when i'm done ;) Even if you see not much releases anymore, i'll still create sound at home and for myself. Just feels right. Still and again. Techno breathes life while ambient and fields does so much too. I don't know when a new Vinyl will come out ( hopefully this year ), since some decided that it must makes sense also in the boring financial world and on paper - grrr. A bit of struggle to bring everthing under 1 mütze as a one-man-unit! However i am very thankful to everyone still is interested in the music and who is supporting by purchasing an Album or download. Still means a lot. Thank You and stay tuned.
- bottom-line:: =)
||Musik ist wichtig, bedeutungsvoll und kann weit mehr sein als nur unterhaltsame Hintergrundberieselung oder um ausschließlich für partyaffine Dinge herzuhalten. Die meisten Musiker und unbeirrte Hörer wissen das: Tiefe, Weite, Aufrichtigkeit, Loyalität sowie universelle Stimmungs-Übertragung/Transformation - Liebe, Traurigkeit, Schönheit, Dunkelheit, Klarheit und - genau - das Gegenteil von Oberflächlichkeit, sowie all die Sachen für die es keine guten wörtlichen Beschreibungen gibt: das kann Musik sein. Jedenfalls wohl für die Art Mensch & Musiker wie mich. Zwar ist es vlt nicht verkehrt das jeder ein bischen anders tickt, aber ohne Musik muss alles tatsächlich ein ewiger Irrtum sein, oder?! nadenn:...Hört und macht mehr Musik - das fühlt sich richtig an, ist gut und verhindert den baldigen Weltuntergang :-)

||Hello new year... as usual a smooth slide into you. Here the first Aux message transformed into world wide crap -hehe, nah just doing the first website thingies, Aux 2017 has been opened and 2016 is past and has been archived below. I wish everyone a senseful and lovely new year - i guess it will be not much different then last year for some aspects ( positive as well as negative ), but still believing on constructive things and not much termination. So best wishes and surprise me 2017 - may the force be with you =)!
