In Sequencer Euphoria by Paul Asbury Seaman

In Sequencer Euphoria by Paul Asbury Seaman

Chart positions

This show was 1st in the global berlin chart, 2nd in the global electronic chart, 4th in the global ambient chart and 6th in the global chillout chart.

I have talked many times here about how a single track or artist can inspire a mix. That seems to have happened with this latest mix from Paul.

He emailed me about a month ago about Kubusschnitt, a group creating berlin school style music. That discovery set him on the course of creating a mix of sequencer tunes. And we did our usual thing - Paul sends me the tracklist, I twiddle the knobs and a mix is born. All the music used here is fairly new, ranging from 2010 to 2019.

Here's what Paul has to say about this mix:

“Not for the faint of heart, this one’s full-on sequencers front and center, all the way through. Highway driving motorcycle music. Or vacuuming the house, aerobics music. Yet, part of the magic of this type of electronic music is the amazing way it has a soothing effect, even as it’s so propulsive. In any case, here’s a Perfect Seven from five of the current giants in the genre and two of its historic pillars.”

Thanks, Paul!

If you like this mix, you will love SpiralDreams: https://spiraldreams.bandcamp.com/music. SpiralDreams [yes, no space] is an electronic artist working in Budapest, Hungary. Fantastic, pure -- and prolific -- Berlin School sequencer synthesizer music. I hadn't discovered him when I put this mix together or I definitely would have featured a track from one of his albums. Among the very best artists currently working in this genre. Thanks to being featured on Brainvoyager's "Electronic Fusion" show here on Mixcloud for the tip! :-)

this is stunning - very reminiscent, both in style and execution, of African xylophone ensembles, Gamelan music and steele drum ensembles... thank you

Thanks for listening & commenting. I hadn't thought of these tunes in that way. Cheers!

A more direct influence (and, perhaps who influenced them) are the minimalists of the 60's and 70's like Steve Reich, Terry Riley, and Philip Glass, to name a few.

Chris, that definitely, but it dawned on me via these that even they were influenced by xylophone, steel drum and gamelan

Paul Asbury Seaman

To Crowspeak and others: Philip Glass's recent autobiography, "Music Without Words" is excellent (re this discussion), as is David Byrne's of Talking Heads: "How Music Works" (2012).
