Jens-Uwe Beyer (Magazine, Kompakt Pop Ambient – GER)

Records: ML (Radio Cómeme/NTS Radio)

On March 25, meakusma goes back to the Foyer of the Jünglingshaus in Eupen presenting two unconventional concerts by Jens-Uwe Beyer from Cologne.

Jens-Uwe Beyer is known for being one of the founding members of ‘All-Star Band’ Cologne Tape and for running the Cologne-based Magazine label together with Barnt and Crato. He has frequently contributed music to the Pop Ambient compilations on Kompakt before founding his own PNN label. he has released solo work on Magazine, Kompakt Pop, PNN and Italic. His The Emissary album is a deceptively tranquil and beautiful ambient music outing that houses deep and brooding undercurrents. As very much the case with the producers linked to the Magazine label, The Emissary carries a subtle statement in its tendency to focus on explicit beauty and combining that tendency with refined avant garde techniques. Beyer’s music essentially makes the wayward accessible.

PNN11 Popnoname Remix of OID`s “Bright Side Of Life”

PNN11_OID_Bright Side of Life

Popnoname has produced an exclusive remix to preview the release of Russian producer OID’s ‘Bright Side of Life’ EP on PNN Records. Whilst the 12 inch (PNN12) already features remixes from The Field, Popnoname & Phillip Janzen and Mujuice, this unique Popnoname remix does not appear on the EP and is designed to give listeners a taster of things to come. ‘Bright Side of Life’ is an upbeat track whose individual sound allows each of these remixes to stand alone. Popnoname’s exclusive version gives the track a techno twist. It keeps the catchy loops intact and overlaps them with a punchier beat which, interspersed with ambient instrumentals, work together to transmit a sense of anticipation that prepares us for the upcoming EP.
