Full spead ahead with Turbobache

Helioscope has spawned its third sub-channel. It is called Turbobache (or Bache for short) and will take the Hotline Miami and Pier Pressure series from Distant and Helioscope to their new home. Over the course of the second half of 2015, this channel will be one of the core targets of my output, with TTHM’s fifth volume Only The Dead arriving tomorrow and the sequel to Pier Pressure called A Beauty And The Beach on July 31. Bache In Vegas is quite similar in sound, but has more funky vibes to it. That one will see the light of day on August 28.

A Journey To New Galaxies : Planetarium sets off to residency on FRISKY Radio

I’m happy to announce that Planetarium has been picked up by FRISKY Radio, more specifically the CHILL station. The brand new format is called Neptunian and is intended to deliver serene sounds similar to the eighth and tenth Idolatry sessions Lost Odyssey / The Deep Blue (available July 1) as well as acoustic, sometimes vocal-influenced chill-out tracks.

A date for the first broadcast (Valles Marineris) has now been worked out by the station’s admins, it will be July 26. Tune in to Frisky CHILL every 4th sunday @ 9am EST / 3pm CEST. Each 1-hour broadcast remains a 2-week exclusive, so Mixcloud listeners will be able to satisfy their ears on third Wednesdays of the following month (1st episode arrives August 19).

In other news, the mixtape schedule for the rest of 2015 has mostly been finished. Arriving in summer and autumn season are, for example, the label showcases of Atomnation (Tulip Folder – July 26), Kompakt (Elbchaussee – November 29) and Life and Death (The Bacchanal – December 6) as well as the sequels for Permanent Vacation (Perpetual Chimes, Ancient Times, Endless Lines – July 22, August 5, August 19) and Mango Alley (Maritime Adventures, The Deep Blue, A New Panorama – June 24, July 1, August 9).

Artist showcases are not to be missed, either. Kobana (On Repeat – August 30), Jaytech vs. Nigel Good (Discoverers of the Multiverse – October 11), Moderat (When We Collide – December 13) and Robag Wruhme (Wighnomial – December 27) join the party. There are no sequels, but exciting and new additions, as you can see.

Helioscope Sun Set isn’t much longer. I decided to get rid of overly long mixtapes, since the attention span of almost every listener is at most three hours, it seems. Instead, there’s a new, quite similar format now replacing HSS. It will be called Sol-Archives and consists of classic tracks released before the Helioscope era (pre-2010). I haven’t decided about the schedule yet. I’ll just wait and see how well it will be received. However, the first edition (Chapter 1) is scheduled to arrive on September 27.

Until the end of this year, you are also going to see the return of all three seasonals: Lush summer vibes are out there en masse. No wonder, Jade Bay Vol. 2 (July 12) is almost finished. New Soul has been quite impactful the past two years, so I would miss a great opportunity if I didn’t create one for the third year in a row. As you might know, I decided to rename it. Silvan Soul is more appropriate in my opinion, since the forest has been a key element of inspiration for track selection in the atmospheric deep house and techno genres. Volume 1 releases August 23. Following that, an unexpected return does Worlds Between Us (September 13), as the fourth edition was initially scheduled for early 2016. There are a lot of blissful, melodic progressive tunes still unused in my library. Plus, Volume 3 was a lot fun in terms of mixing and I really think I can improve on that even more. Silvan Soul will spawn a second mix on November 8. Last year, I released three parts (CDs with 80 minutes in length) over the course of one month. Much like the release of Jade Bay, spreading it across a whole season seems more reasonable.

If you are not convinced yet, there’s LEIMLAB, the ambient and dub techno mixtape series, returning to Helioscope, this time staying for much longer, but on a semi-monthly basis. Catch the first episode of season two on August 12. It will then occur on every 2nd Wednesday of every second month.

Stay tuned for another big announcement regarding Distant coming next week!
