Second to None
I've been making music for many years with synths and drum computers just for my own pleasure. Somehow I've always loved monotone and depressive songs very much. Especially 80's related ones with not too much production. I love cheap sounding drum machines and dry mixdowns. Basically I've been producing music that I wanted to listen to myself but that just was not available. If somebody asked me about my main influences i would always name Yazoo because of their very cool electronic sound, Anne Clark because of her poems & music of the early 80's and Peter Gabriel because of his late 70's, early 80's ahead of the times music & lyrics and because of his unique voice. Of course Depeche Mode do mean a lot to me, too. I've been appreciating their music since they released 'New Life' and that's been quite a while. In January 2006 I discovered the Iris CD 'Wrath' by accident via Amazon and became a big fan of this outstanding music. Coincidentally I've had the chance to meet the band at some shows in Europe. After some chats I realized that it should be possible for me to release my music also. This meant some kind of ignition to my own productiveness again. So here it is - my first official release ! Due to my obsession with writing songs there will be more available soon. Cheers! Jens Bader.
