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.
