…His is pretty much a life always on the go — except when he gets home, as he often must, so as to wind down, relax, cook and of course listen to music — different music than when he’s in clubs or driving to the next airport. And this is the stuff from which the successful compilation series “Coming Home” is made, a CD series that since 2007 has been inspiring heroes of electronic music to put together their personal “own-four-walls” selection and hand it over to their fans and other music lovers. Colleagues from Nightmares on Wax, DJ Hell, the Berlin sound collective Jazzanova and the Paris band Nouvelle Vague have already pulled out the stops for “Coming Home” — and now it’s Sven Väth’s turn to delve deep into his vinyl collection…

POPNONAME IN MOSKAU

POPNONAME (DE, live)
ANDREI OID

@ George Best

Под названием Popnoname скрывается Йенс-Уве Байер – житель Кёльна, выпускающий альбомы на лейбле Italic и своем собственном PNN, но логичным образом плотно ассоциирующийся с пресловутым Kompakt Records – именно там вышел его главный танцпольный хит “Hello Gorgeous”, а с 2005 года без его участия не обходится ни один сборник серии Pop Ambient. Обозначить музыкальный стиль Popnoname – задача непростая. Йенс-Уве с легкостью балансирует между поп-музыкой, эмбиентом и шугейзом; сочиняет цепляющие мелодии, разливает холодные атмосферные гармонии и рисует синтетические узоры; пускает в ход вокал и гитару – и при этом всегда помнит про стержень фирменного “компактовского” тек-хауса. Та самая музыка, которую надо прежде всего слушать, но которая неумолимо заставляет танцевать.
В своем пятничном лайв-сете в George Best Йенс-Уве прежде всего презентует московской публике вышедший прошедшей осенью альбом “50°”, представляющий из себя элегантный hi-fi pop, но вы никогда не знаете, чего ожидать от человека, который с одинаковым успехом выдает 80-минутные эмбиент-опусы типа “Red Book” и треки, которые играют рейв-монстры вроде Джона Дигвида.
Компанию Popnoname составит московский электронщик Андрей Оид, поучавствовавший в сборнике ремиксов на “50°”, и один из ключевых столичных тек-хаус диджеев Василий B Voice.

KOMPAKT DISTRIBUTION

Cologne’s new label PNN shows up with artists like our Buddy Bozzwell, who sings the lyrics of Popnoname`s Flame of the Pilots a new. Pawas took Meteor on his board and Popnoname adds La Pacho from his current Live-Set. Volker Pannes leads you with Happens at Night to the highest level of ecstasy and Andrei Oid creates loops that wander into the distance and drives the beautiful harmonies of Flame of the Pilots toward freedom… but who shall bring us back to the ground? Matt Karmil, who will release his debut album in early 2014 on PNN, remixed the Bonus Track La Pacho, what was released a short time ago on a limited split 7 ” on EB.

PNN catapults you to the year 2014. Don’t sit in front of your devices – change your status to go out – dancing!

Jens-Uwe Beyer lives in Cologne, he founded the band ‘Cologne Tape’ the label ‘Magazine’ and you know him under his moniker ‘Popnoname’. Most recently he remixed the Eurythmics and Brian Eno & Cluster for the Conny Plank Tribute Compilation on Grönland. He is a frequent guest of Kompakt’s Pop Ambient series and just released probably the longest maxi in the world – the almost eighty minute (!) ambient piece “Red Book” on Magazine.
His third album 50° is an elegant, accommodating, direct hi-fi pop album which fears neither death nor pathos. It was produced in the ‘oneartist’ studio together with Bertil Mark. The journey takes us from Pop (Happens at Night and the first single Change) through ambient soundscapes (Timenation), to early 90s shoegaze moments (Meteor and Passing by) but at its core always remains the techno ideal, without promising club functionality.
For the release of 50° Beyer specially founded the new label PNN with Kompakt’s Gesine Schönrock. Accompanying the album, PNN publishes 4 music videos – an app for the i-pad and the fashion piece “Popnoshirt” you can find them at Popnoshop.com or Kompakt.fm. Bodo, who features on the cover of the album, used to live from the bottle recycling system in Germany but is now running a trust based shop near the PNN offices.
Jens-Uwe Beyer performs as both a solo act and setting permitted, with Beritl Mark on drums and the enigmatic Isis Lace on vocals.

Seit der Jahrtausendwende lebt Jens-Uwe Beyer schon im vierviertelminimalistischen Köln, den Sound der Domstadt als Musiker und Labelbetreiber seither entscheidend mitprägend. Er gründete die Allstar-Band Cologne Tape (mit Barnt, Crato, Jan Philipp Janzen, Ada, The Field, Jörg Burger and John Stanier), fusioniert auf dem Label Magazine Krautiges mit Techno, ist regelmäßiger Gast der von Kompakt ins Leben gerufenen Pop Ambient-Reihe und hat unter dem Moniker Popnoname schon zwei Alben im Graubereich zwischen Synthiepop und Techno veröffentlicht. Zuletzt remixte er sowohl Eurythmics als auch Brian Eno & Cluster für die auf Grönland erschienende Conny Plank-Tribut-Compilation. Sein letztes eigenes musikalisches Lebenszeichen war die wahrscheinlich längste Maxi der Welt – das gut achtzigminütige (!) Clubambient- Stück “Red Book” auf Magazine.

Dagegen ist das dritte Popnoname-Album 50 ein elegisches, auf den Punkt gebrachtes Hi-Fi Popalbum, das weder Tod noch Pathos fürchtet. Dass 50° trotz der pompösen Produktion (eingespielt wurde das Album in den Studios der M.A.R.S-Kommune von Thomas D. unter Mithilfe von Bertil Mark) nie steril klingt, verdankt sich den zahlreichen Brüchen, die Beyer eingearbeitet hat. Neben opulenten Popsongs wie “Happens at night” oder der ersten Single “Change” finden sich warme Ambientsoundscapes (“Timenation”) oder aussergewöhnliche Spoken Word-Stücke (“Anna”). Dagegen zeugen Songs wie “Meteor” oder “Passing by” von einem Faible für den britischen Shoegazepop der frühen Neunziger, ohne dass die Gitarren ins Schrammeln kommen. Denn am Ende überkommt einen das Lebensgefühl von Techno, auch wenn man keine clubfunktionalen Tooltracks auf dem Album findet. Popnoname ist es gelungen in einer unangestrengten Art und Weise genreübergreifende Musik in eine Reise zu verwandeln.
Hierzu gründete Beyer eigens ein neues Label PNN mit Gesine Schönrock, das neben dem Album 50 °, zahlreiche Musikvideos, sowie einer Applikation fürs I-Pad, und der von Trentschaft entworfenen Modekollektion mit dem Namen “Popnoshirt” veröffentlicht. Man findet alles auf dem hauseigenen Popnoshop (popnoshop.com) oder über Kompakt.
Auf dem Cover des Albums ist der Nachbar des in Köln sitzenden Labels PNN: Bodo, der zunächst auffiel als Flaschensammler aus der Umgebung – jetzt betreibt er ein florierenden Getränke Kiosk, der sich neben dem Büro angesiedelt hat.
Neben Jens-Uwe Beyer bilden Bertil Mark (Drums) und die unbeschreibliche Isis Lace (Female Vocals) die Band Popnoname, die bald, neben der cluborientierten One-Man Show Beyers (Laptop, Mikrophone, Gitarre) auf den Bühnen dieser Welt zu sehen sein wird.

Flame of the Pilots App for Ipad and Android

Concept Director Andrew Bikichky fuels his passion and finds a new space for album artwork on tablet devices

“I have very strong memories of enjoying the artwork that came with the music I’ve collected over the years. Getting lost in the visuals the artist presented with their work was part of the complete experience for me. Listening to the entire album with the music turned up, I would lie back and stare at the cover or immerse myself in the hi-fi temple of the living room with the lights low. The album covers, the booklets, the gatefold editions designed by the likes of Storm Thorgerson, Anton Corbijn, Peter Saville, Designer’s Republic helped shape an imaginative space that expanded the music enjoying experience…Today, most of the time, all we have is a little thumbnail of the album cover viewed on our mobile devices.

A desire to bring back that magical connection album art can have with music inspired me to make Popnoname // Flame of the Pilots, the debut issue from the Noumenon Collection. In order to successfully revive album artwork, it must be published to the canvas on which viewers increasingly enjoy their media. Tablets provide that new space to reinvent the album art experience.”

Noumenon Collection is a digital magazine/newsstand app for iOS (iPad, iPad Mini) and Android (7″+) tablets featuring artwork conceived around the music. Noumenon Collection is essentially a visual concept album publishing label. Looking at it like an album, Popnoname // Flame of the Pilots features 8 chapters/tracks: One music video followed by 7 more tracks of audio playing over long scrolling layouts that either go up and down or left and right, some of them up to 18 feet in length. A sister release to 50º, the tracks are comprised of alternate versions from 50° and previously unreleased songs. It’s a unique experience that features exclusive material from the recording artist, providing the added value of collectibility.

Most efforts in music apps center around the idea of interactivity. But I prefer the interactivity to occur in the listener’s imagination as they simply enjoy the journey. Linear storytelling still holds great value in being able to fully render an artists’ vision, that in turn, becomes our own personal experience of the work.

The Noumenon Collection is a free download with in-app purchasing of individual issues at $2.99. This media does not replace traditional albums or individual songs since the music and visuals are only accessed through the magazine itself. (However, AirPlay playback is a feature update coming soon).

“Zero” (chapter/track 5) is already available as a free sample in the Noumenon Collection app. Take your time to enjoy and listen, preferably in a low light environment and relaxed state. Lift your finger off the screen sometimes to let content play. Optimal with headphones.
