MD 006: AIDAN BAKER & MAIK ERDAS – CAMEO

aidan & maikLast year when Aidan Baker released his Album “The Spectrum Of Distraction” including collaborations with 18 different drummers, he went on tour with A Sun Amissa to support his album.

Cameo LPThis circumstance was the birth of an idea to do a show with Aidan Baker and a drummer. The guys over at thepostrock.de invited Aidan to do an improvisational show with Maik Erdas (former drummer of disbanded experimental Doom Trio Kodiak) in a church in Bochum (Germany).

The result was a 50 minutes long set full of different kinds of soundideas. Beginning with smooth melodies and rhythms, changing to experimental blueprints ending in an epic wall of doom sounds.

We are very proud to present you the documentation of this very unique evening. Aidan Baker put some final hands on the masters and the result is “Cameo”, a Vinyl + CD release. The vinyl contains the first and the last part of the set and the CD completes the package including the whole set from the church show.

MD 003: NINEMILES – GRÍMSEY

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERASometimes people visit places that are so impressive, that they start taking a lot of pictures and when they move back home, they decide to make a photoalbum. ninemiles did not focus on taking pictures. After he moved back from his journey to the island called Grímsey, he started writing songs.

“Grímsey” is the debut album of ninemiles that emerged from the idea to form the reminiscence of the icelandic island to sounds. The album consists of nine tracks that move between ambient, classic piano melodies, synthiedrones and experimental moments. In one moment you feel secure while listening to melancholic melodies, in the next moment you got covered by dark drones. Day & night, sea & land, good & bad converse on this breathtaking record.

ninemiles is the soloproject of Thomas who is one part of the Bass-Drone-Duo [BOLT]. On “Grímsey” he moves away from the massive sounds of his bassguitar and focusses on sophisticated scopes of electronic music.

“Grímsey” will be released in a limited edition of 200 CDs housed in Digipacks (450g cardboard) with stunning snapshots from the island Grímsey. First 30 orders will get a special booklet with additional photographies, selected by the artist.
