Cari Lekebusch - Newsletter - May 2015

Greetings there! Cari here with some upcoming and just completed ventures for the spring season of May 2015.

Thank you so muchies for the awe evening at Club Poema, Utrecht - and the Sleaze Records special with Hans Bouffmyhre in Stuttgart at Club Lehman. Epic sound as ever! Top graded! Was also extra fun to play for the good old home turf of Stockholm last weekend with Joel Mull. See you in the zone soon at Elektrokueche, Cologne (24 may) - and at Chateau Techno next week in Zaandam.

Below you can find a new mixed set hosted on my Soundcloud. Sneak preview alert! It includes the first in line of my upcoming vinyl only releases - coming on my label H-Productions.

VA - Glimpses Chapter 1 (LEMU2015G113)

Lekebusch Musik proudly presents "Glimpses - Chapter 1" (verses 01-13), an extraordinary audio/poetry album produced by Swedish Techno sound architect, Cari Lekebusch. Created in collaboration with writers and voice over artists from across the globe, the album features audio poems written by Bob Johnson, G-Tech, Mantis Oh and C-Blast, merged with electronica soundtracks and the voices of NushiOne, Persia Bravin and KorpGud.

Each of the thirteen poems explores the age old questions associated with the human condition, taking you on a journey through an intense range of emotions and fusing these sentiments with sound. Love, loss, beauty, revenge, birth and the unchartered abyss of death are familiar themes throughout.

The main aim of this project is to reach a different audience: one that is perhaps not usually interested in classic poetry formats. By setting these words against a backdrop of hypnotic, eerie and sometimes foreboding tracks, and layering each one with atmospheric sound effects, the listener can immerse themselves in each poem completely.

Presented here as an open access release, the full 13-track album is available to download as you choose. In addition to the music, the album artwork can be downloaded in various screensaver formats for your computer, smart phone or tablet (goto for full info).

Cari Lekebusch NEWS March/April 2015

Greetings from the Hybrid Productions headquarters!

February and March have been all about remodelling my label H-Productions, besides getting some awesome fun tourdates done. It was great to be back at the Rex club in Paris with Paul Ritch, as well as at Perron in Rotterdam. And also at the Kombination Research event with Steve Rachmad and The Advent / Industrialyzer at Westeruni in Amsterdam!

The first in a row of new releases via H-Productions is out March 23 and will be a bandcamp exclusive (more info below). Following that will be 2 new vinyl exclusive releases and a new digi exclusive - more info coming as they launch.

Looking forward now to my upcoming April German dates in Essen, Berlin, Heidelberg and in Stuttgart at Club Lehman.

- see you out there - best wishes // Cari*

HYBRID-008 - Cari Lekebusch - Tightrope (H-Productions)

For the true and experienced lovers of authentic Techno sound architecture, this record does not need much presentation. Cari Lekebusch has since the beginning of the 1990's been releasing a steady stream of vinyl records as well as all types of digital formats

Since 1986 the personal label project of Cari has been going through many phases of change. One of them being the ending of the HYB catalog numbered vinyl releases, and the beginning of the HP (1997) and HPX (2004) catalogs.

To mark a 2015 reset, Cari is morphing the grid once again and will now continue both the HPX Beatport catalog and the HYB vinyl catalog - as well as the oldest HYBRID catalog, that will appear exclusive in our own Bandcamp shop only.

The retro sounding audio-pictures of "Tightrope" are intentionally created with the various H-Productions releases in mind, that came out around 1993-1997. Created with a stripped down approach and recorded live with only what 2 hands can muster at once. Live and direct from the hybrid productions headquarters!

OUT March 23, 2015!

Cari Lekebusch - News, February 2015

Ahoy all cosmonauts! Welcome back to a new rotation around our sun - to be filled with plenty new tasty grooves. It has been 10 years since the release of my album called "The Architect", on Truesoul Records. Now you can listen to the anniversary upload below or on their page - the whole album (it is more of a listening album, rather than my DJ track's) =D

The year 2015 started nice and easy, as i usually like to spend time in the studio as well as taking out some hollidaysies =) But now the track stock is full and i am eager to get new releases out. It will mainly be on my own label H-Productions, but i deffo intend to release on some other labels as well.

H-Productions will restart the vinyl catalog, with an exclusive limited small press. The catalog on Beatport will also continue soon with it's own exclusive line. AND there will be a third H-Productions catalog line - also all exclusive track's, and they will only be availeble in my Bandcamp shop. More updates on that in the next newsletter.

The tourdates are starting again and after some good rest i cant wait to go out flaunting grooves for you all! My visit in Liege, Belgium and at Fabric in London last weeks where smashing fun - thanx all guests and promotor's :D What epic beauty both these cities have (i do love old architecture). It is like time travelling!

Next stops will be in Utrecht, at the Snowball Festival - will be epic daytime festival and hopefully i get to make a snow-man and chuck a few snowballs =P If not i have to bring some snow from Stockholm i guess oO Also comming up is Leiden in the Netherlands and Fuse club in Brussels, Belgium. Looking forward to return indeed =) After that, march is comming up, and there will be more about that and else in the next newsletter.

Below you can peek the anniversary release of my album "The Architect", and a new chart at Beatport. Plus two new dj mixes i made. One for my buddies at Lehman Club in Stuttgart, Germany and a promo mix i made before my gigg at Fabric in London.
