hello friends, years ago I got an email from vava vol and she asked if she could send me a track for MIDNIGHTRADIO COMPILATION, that was the first contact with Vava Vol. in the next years we worked together again and again and today our second album has been released. I would like to thank you, dear Vava Vol, that you go all the experimental ways with me, for that I love you. i would like to thank Candy Lozier who keeps offering these experiments a platform and sending them to the world, in love, glasklinge zeitenlicht - the next words are from vava vol and Candy Lozier
Vava Vol: Please welcome our second collaboration album "Mitte Kreuzberg" hosted by the prestigious Studio 4632 Netlabel. While Eisenlager and I recorded our tracks in our respective studios, we communicated regularly on the progress being made. While working on a blank aural canvas, we discussed our ideas and vision for the album and one day he asked me where I had lived while in West Berlin in the 80s. I responded with "somewhere in the Mitte Kreuzberg district" and thus the tracks, album title and cover art collage came to life. It's such a pleasure to work with Eisenlager. He's a fearless futurist, is beyond musically talented and is not lacking in the creative department. Over the years we have worked together on numerous collaborations, developing a close friendship and professional relationship. The plan is to continue on this journey. I'd like to thank you, Eisenlager, for being you.
I am very pleased to be a part of the Studio 4632 Netlabel family and would also like to thank Candy L for her warm review of our album and for graciously hosting "Mitte Kreuzberg".
Talks are underway for a fall album, so please stay tuned.
A fond memory of 1984 West Berlin
“I remember the moment I stepped off the train that late October night with my ten suitcases and entered Berlin’s Zoo Station. The decades-old fluorescent lights cast an eerie yellow glow throughout the building and their constant, low electrical hum filled the air. I could see, hear and feel the history in this place and little did I know this moment would stay with me forever. This was my welcome to 1984 West Berlin.” - Vava Vol’s 1980s Archives
