Utopianisti is Finnish composer/multi-instrumentalist/producer Markus Pajakkala's brainchild, started in 2010. It's a studio project where the line-up changes for every song. Pajakkala plays the drums, woodwinds and some keyboards himself and composes and engineers all the material. Guest musicians are plenty, from different genres - classically trained, jazz, folk and rock musicians. The style is mostly instrumental, energetic jazz-rock / eclectic prog with occasional leaps towards Balkan gypsy music, tango, avant-garde, latin or even operatic metal. Pajakkala is also a key member in the band Poutatorvi.

Formed in the 1994 in the back province of West Saxony (Germany) and based in Leipzig since 2001, Disillusion quickly matures to something of an underground institution. Already at the very beginning the band around mastermind Schmidt is enclosed by a unique charisma which leaves no doubt about the fact that this band could become a real high-flyer on their hard way to uncompromising music.
After 18 months' time of production in April 2004 "Back to Times of Splendor" is released and is rightly being hailed internationally as one of the best debut albums in progressive metal genre…

Joe Vitale is an American singer, songwriter, composer and multi-instrumentalist, most known for his close work with Joe Walsh. On his first solo album, "Roller Coaster Weekend" (1974), he's responsible for most of the music, playing everything from drums and keyboards to flute and tympani. Filling out the other slots is a mini-guitar army of Rick Derringer, Joe Walsh, and Phil Keaggy. Yet, despite such luminaries, it's not a guitar show-off album. Rather, it's a song-oriented album, and the three guitarists always work in service to the songs…

Photophob is Herwig Holzmann, from Graz, Austria. A rising star of IDM-genre who has released several MP3 albums and EP's on many different netlabels. His debut CD-album, "Your Majesty Machine", was released on Hive Records in Oct. 2004 and his follow-up album, "Still Warm" came out in Apr. 2006.
This will be familiar rhythm territory to fans of Beefcake or other melodic broken beat endeavours but "Your Majesty Machine" (2004) is jam packed with fresh ideas and creative new twists. Photophob sound like someone going back over the quirkier parts of Kraftwerk's musical territory, minus the technopop sensibilities, armed with Autechre's production values…

Four Ears are Bym Stempka and Curt Nolte, both children of Berlins underground-scene. If you add up the number of ears they posess between the two of them, you will suddenly understand the name of the project.
Bym Stempka has had great influence on German music-history. He was the founder of Flucht Nach Vorn (well known New Wave Underground outfit from the early eighties). Since 1980 he has been dj-ing in Berlin's famous clubs like ChaCha, Metropol, Glückstein, Tresor, Globus, WMF and many others. Bym is one of Germanys most respected underground hiphop, drum & bass DJs…

This Norwegian folk outfit started out in the early 70s mixing acoustic instruments (fiddle, mandolin, banjo and piano) with the electric guitar, bass and keyboards. They created an earthy music made up of playful, catchy melodies with male/female vocal interplay. Despite important personnel changes over the years (their first-rate lead female singer was replaced, among others), they have managed to remain true to their sound and have churned out over ten fine albums between 1974 and 1998. Their highest rated album is their third, entitled "Vardøger", closely followed by their first two, "Folque" and "Kjempene på Dovrefjell" released in the mid-70s, and by "Fredløs" and "Sort messe" released in the early 80s…

John Renbourn - The Lady And The Unicorn (1970). The Lady and the Unicorn is the 1970 solo album by British folk musician John Renbourn. Featuring Terry Cox playing hand drums and glockenspiel, with future John Renbourn band member Tony Roberts and violinist Dave Swarbrick. The repertory consists of medieval and early classical pieces, interspersed with the expected folk material - keyboard works from the Fitzwilliam virginal book (transcribed for guitar) stand alongside traditional tunes such as "Scarborough Fair," which turns up as part of an 11-minute track that also incorporates "My Johnny Was a Shoemaker," with Swarbrick at the top of his form on violin. The album is entirely instrumental, but as with other Renbourn releases, one hardly misses the vocals…

Swod is the recording project of Oliver Doerell and Stephan Wohrmann, two accomplished musicians who met in Berlin sometime in 1991. Oliver plays guitar, bass and all manner of electronics - he is also a long-time family member of City Centre Offices having recorded an album and an EP under the “Dictaphone” moniker in between composing and performing musical pieces for theatre, installations and film over the last few years. Stephan plays piano and drums, arranging an almost neo-classical structure within a recording that already sounds ghostly and cinematic. Translated as "go", "Gehen" (2004) represents a labour of love from two musicians experienced in the art of seductive and evocative music making…

Sula Bassana is the alias for a talented musician named Dave Schmidt. Being master of several instruments he's able to retrospect to a lot of collaborations composing and performing his music.
Sula Bassana - The Night (2009). Multi-instrumentalist Sula is a music aficionado as no other when simultanously collaborating with several bands/projects, organizing festivals in Austria as well as his own Sulatron record label and mail-order business. In spite of that he's even able to spare time enough to record complete albums on his own. This means 'The Night' was produced at his homestudio where he manages all the instruments by himself…

Genre: Techno, Electro | RAR 3% Rec. | Label: Hypnotic Records

A Danish quartet named in admiration of their prime influence, Kraftwelt re-works the original innovations of Kraftwerk with a sound more in debt to '90s electronic music and trip-hop. The group, also known for their recordings as Audio Science, signed to the stateside industrial label Cleopatra in 1996, releasing the Deranged in Space EP in July and their album debut, "Electric Dimension", later that year. Most tracks hover around the four-minute range and work in some aspect of Kraftwerk’s signature sounds: modulating radio pulses, quirky Moog melodies, bare-bones electro rhythms, starry-eyed looks at futurism. Missing, however, are robot voices, catchy pop moments, and a sense of innovative craftsmanship that defined so much of Kraftwerk’s output…
