Tim Treubrodt aka Nachklangmusik states that, “Great things started with small steps. A walk on the moon or the jump from the stratosphere to earth are the results of technical evolution and cooperating humanity. We were all born by the Dust of Stars” and similarly Nachklangmusik‘s latest endeavour on Nice & Nasty is a fusion of technology, evolution and human collaboration. Collaboration for Innovation in small steps, one after each other only in this case each step is a sonic journey created by Tim and recreated by a plethora of music makers from around the globe.
The original version of One Small Step apearred on The Continuum EP and it represented a journey back to Moon and reduced gravity, weightlessness, emotional drifting and intellectual stasis. Stasis brought about by melody and hi tech soul – Deep Pads, spacey, sci fi melodies and subtle yet lush guitar strings will take you back to the surface of the moon and onto a sonic journey of cerebral funk that may seem a million light years away but can be found deep within the soul.
The global music makers from Canada, USA, UK, Holland, Germany and ireland, however, have recreated, reinterpreted and reinvented Tim’s steps with the full force of the Moon’s gravitational pull on the Earth. They have all, except Travino and NewtownSoul, all went with gravity in the shape and form of a 4/4 groove and kick drum. Each beat pounds the soul and shakes the brain as every step is taken rooted in terra firma.
Tim has remixed some of the leading lights in modern techno and the collection of remixer collaborators showcases the depth and and wealth of talent at Nice & Nasty: Ronan Scullion aka Pseudonym, John Shina,John Shima with Richard Benson as Edge Effect, Marc de Breyne aka Iron Horse, Noraj Cue, NewtownSoul (elektrosouls), Travino, Scott Gray aka Texture and Frank Kratzer aka Sparkinzi all join Tim on his sonic journey through space and time.
