STL - Lost In Musik - Something Vinyl Series 31

Available now here for 16 euro and soon in good record shops. Send me an email please to place an order. Retrospective, this new double vinyl album had to cut through bits of chaos. Long production run at the pressing plant, plus the cancelation of the exclusive deal with my old distributor wordandsound in the meantime. Now and currently hardwax.com is distributing Something non-exclusive. I hope w.a.s., resellers and good recordshops will buy some copies nevertheless, so it will be in usual stores soon or sooner. Get in touch for further info. As mentioned you can buy the album from me of course via email. Hardwax has it too and is distributing it b2b, so please check them out as well. Lost In Musik was long in progress. Finally it is all finished and i am happy with each bit. Check the audios and everything on the vinyl series page. A digital release isn't planed yet and it will take a while.
My best wishes and cheers again!




Infotext: Ignition, Something Records lifts off 'Lost in Musik' by STL aka Stephan Laubner. An album to blow your minds, shake your bodies and touch your souls. On 17 tracks and an extended playing-time, this double vinyl comes in complete album feel, multifarious variations, and in STL's full tonal trademark fit. It will rumble dance-floors the same as moody home listening places. Here we go. STL attends the brains & ears in his magic discrete way with an unstoppable bucket-raining flow of fresh sounds, catching rhythms and aspirating music, like no one else usually does. Soon after joining these vinyl reliefs, you will be under the spellbound and enhexed beauty of these otherworldly beats and tones, which makes you feel all of the sudden, being relocated in other dimensions shrouded in new-born principles of fascinating un-shattered realities. Feel from beyond. Something Vinyl Series 31 works great with special and exceptional. From the sound creations up to the artwork. Everything follows the distinct d-i-y philosophy to what a something-records release is well known for. The Vinyls are coming in limited quantity. So you better be fast catching a copy. Now let the music do the further talking. Enjoy this seldom gem. Take the action and get lost in musik!

STL - Sneak Illuminator - Goldmin-D

Sneak sneak.. a new digital probe is available now for you guys. It is the precursor and part of the upcoming STL triple vinyl album, that is coming late december probably, called 'Illumination'. It will be shoot out by Goldmin. Check the Sneak Illuminator at digital worlds or here on Goldmin's Bandcamp page: https://goldminmusic.bandcamp.com/album/sneak-illuminator
08.05.2021............... -Expect a new STL album later this year. 'Lost in Musik' Something Vinyl Series 31 will come out in early autumn if everything works out as expected. Actually it is finished since 2 months, but the pressing of vinyl turned out to be a bumpy road lately. It will be a double 12".
-And re: my humble take; a person near me said it was a complicated text/matter for her. Just a remark for those slightly shaking heads...it is honestly meant postive thru and thru! Of course something constructed can be deconstructed by it's nature, but it is not my intention to frighten someone by an abstract. As said constructive and positve meant and a personal view. So all good, in case of doubt i hope..^^)
-The UFO playlist has been updated now a bit since start. Currently there are 8 mixes inside there. Download the m3u and use a good media/audioplayer.. u should see 2x4 mixes.. damn it, ait =)
05.05.2021............... My humble take: if you think about what's reality you can quickly run into trouble. I mean is reality only the human related thing? Or does it include the whole universe's matter - or even more like that? Personally my guess is, reality - the term humans are using - is more a social and broken down thing, a word and grabing-thing, something fed by perception, just to simplify everything around people's environments and a tool to make a living between. Actually, coming from there, then there is more than just one of those realities, right? More than just one construction people are involved. Therefore their reality is maybe just an impact of common civilisation and social chimeras - well regarding to the typical average. However, i feel there are better overall things then just dead realities. Think potential things full of life. Not just a fixed and cold steady harsh and frozen menmachine like thing which reality by it's logic would imply. Constructive meant. Theres is much more than that. I mean this reality is just overrated - it should be more than what we can grasp - being beyond everything. Think elsewhere and feel from beyond...
Just a few thoughts from me this morning, since people always ask and wondering why i try to talk about Wirklichkeit sometimes and stuff like that :) So thats just my personal point of being here, which keeps me connected!
05.05.2021............... The Free Sound Of The Moment Area has been refreshed today, check!
01.04.2021............... Out now:
Stephan Laubner - Around Zero - Something DGT Series 59

Freeze - and warm up for the next frosty sounding album 'Around Zero' here on Something. It is a field-recording album of winter-moods recorded this season. It's available out there right now! Get it now in download shops like beatport as well as at streaming services. The 5 hours are also destined to four 80minute CDs. Check everything at the DGT series page, it's subpage and the cover there. Attached below also as always the physical Copy Fotos by myself. Happy listening and thanks again.





The nature series on something continues with a 5 hours field recording album, inspired by the cold season and frosty things within the harz nature park area. Stephan Laubner's latest album 'Around Zero' is trying to reflect the winter-sounds originally happened and captured in 20/21. You can hear things like ice, snowstorms, melting water, icerain and silent surroundings, all recorded in different techniques at some more quiet deserted spots or at lonely nights with common human sound-sources mostly far away. It's a good blend of background environmental aces and creative listening deep-tools. This long playing trip fits perfectly for silent times in your comfort zones and relaxed setups at home. It's a good way to fall asleep to, and comes convenient whenever you need to listen to something undisturbing yet still refreshing and interesting. Then when silent times doesn't mean silence. Something DGT Series 59 is destined to four 80-minutes Discs, your beloved listening folders or personal streaming applications. It should be best listened on headphones, good stereo or surround systems in best quality and trusted methods. Your ears will thank you. Around Zero is trying to re-echo the sounds which nature and weather is creating, when temperature is around, slightly above or way down below zero degrees. You are most welcome now to join this something records release. Get in. Stay sensitive and open hearted!

18.03.2021............... New instructions: i've reworked the website-look as mentioned already. There will always be some current SOMETHING BROADCAST mix series listens hidden somewhere*. Try to find them! Tip: it has something to do with half-cutted UFOs flying frontline above bulks of madness & great junk. Happy listening! *as always check if your internet gewgaw is m3u compliant - see also the FAQs.
05.03.2021............... dears.. very productive here lately: 2 new albums has been released already, as you know from reading messages below. A new upcoming field recording album called 'Around Zero' will be out 1st of april 21 (see HQ cover >here<). An upcoming something LP hopefully will come in the next months ( it's currently @ the pressing plant)! And then there is still the 'Illumination' 3x12", which in a perfect world, should be out already. Life is pretty fair currently. Making physical releases however, became very difficult for all of us. But thats just this one type of those realities. And perhaps world is going to spin in a few other directions from time to time soon a bit more - let's see. The website has gotten a small facelift as well btw.

Lunatik Sound System - Deepscapes - Something DGT Series 58

Hey - the Deepscapes are out now in digital realms! Please check your music provider and download station. It is an extended playing album dedicated for use on double CDs. Check and download the HQ cover >here<. Deepscapes plays well at silent nights and in non-talking surroundings. I've made this album mostly on modular synth in nocturnal modes. I hope you'll dig & enjoy it - thank you once again :)



Deepscapes a term to describe the art here to descent into droney soundscapes in multiple sessions and late-night sound sinkings, always chilling with the mind's sweet spots and nocturnal sense complied hums. The way this new LSS album was created, was never mapped, yet all tracks were still made with a scientific and outta space approach and a current to deep set being. Lunatik Sound System adjustments, like always, are done completely diy and are coming from physical machines and from cambering the heck out of them. Always trying to find the equal joint between keeping the experimental and shifting boundaries into human understanding & translation without to seize and fix something into determination.
Most of those sound-rattles are coming from a self-composed modular synth setup, plus some trusted hardware synth additions and effect boxes. Nothing but self patched and cable-past-thought. The aim was a voyage of scopes and a trip into rumbling depths. Stephan Laubner's new LSS album is maybe the attempt to take sound-photos and to capture moments in time spend with deep imaginated worlds of artificial yet natural feeling soundscapes, with the intention to illustrate and bring elsewhere-imagination into existence. Use it as a background sweetener, meditation helper or night goggling attender. Whatever way you find for your personal enjoyment, this is probably not the common or usual stuff you will hear on the next average contemporary radiostation. Rather while joining this, it could be a beginning of plenty of untraced and unprecedented new moments. Enjoy, over and out!

Handnumbered limited edition of 300 copies! Check your shop and this <link> to blundar..
19.12.2019............... Dear website visitor, just again a quick hint to check the latests LSS albums online maybe. I've given streaming services the permission to let them broadcast the albums - so check your services like spotify, youtube or your prefered_whatever. The youtube channel-links, they've created, can also be found on my personal youtube place under 'channels' - or just search the titles. Of course you can purchase the complete albums at download shops - for this i would suggest and recommend - > beatport maybe. It is perhaps the best and most complete solution yet!
The year ends soon as well, so maybe a few words: Vinyl sales are low and my distributor has most Something Vinyls below cat-no 016 out of stock... Upper cat.-numbers has mixed stock and some are low stock too, while i have them here! So if you need something, i can invite you to order vinyls here from me - just send me an email pls : )
A new something vinyl is not in sight yet, and - as most of you probably know - the music business is suffering and struggeling. That's what i feel here too. But i can tell you, i give my best to remain! New vinyls always in mind. But these will not come with ease like ago in previous years. However i am still the same Stephan since many many years, still making noise and giving bests of what i can and enjoy. So maybe expect some STL album soon, whether it will be vinyl or 'only' digital.

Have some good holy days and see you later next year! Keep & hold inside your positive spirits! Sending out a few luv bleeps,
cheers!

STL - Nautic Nebulous - Something DGT Series 52

Today is the release of STL - Nautic Nebulous. Please check with your digital world and with your music dealers. It should be available at various places. Just choose your favorite =)



Welcome a new release by STL on Something. The 55th Stephan-Laubner-Album on Something Records does beats, grooves and listening matter in the always full colored something mannerism. Surely it's overall settings are adjusted to on as the whole release comes in good STL fit and tonality.
