Viewing: Air Hofmann - View all posts
Some of you might know that Air and myself are in a band called Radio Haze and like almost all independent artists, we had to compensate for the cancelled shows this year and thus locked ourselves up at Slash Zero Studio and recorded a new album:
available as 40-page-hardcover-photobook in vinyl format (ca. 30x30cm)
incl. photography by analog-street-photographer: Ludwig Van Borkum
incl. 180g Vinyl
incl. HQ 24bit WAV Download
Audiophile Quality Dynamic Anti-Loudness-War Mastering
STRICTLY LIMITED TO 300 COPIES
100 in eco-color (your name in the book, hand-numbered, and signed)
200 in black
Unfortunately the corona-year ate up all our reserves (in true sense of the word), and without trabajo, no dinero... To help fund this just click here and pre-order the new album! (For an alternate 'old-school' way of ordering, please contact Slash Zero Records!)
Thank you for your support of independent artists and music culture!
10 years ago Radio Haze released their 2nd album "The Growth"... By now the album has been remastered and is available on all streaming platforms, but there are still a few CDs left that contain the original master - if you subscribe to the newsletter till Dec 17, you'll get a CD for free (while supplies last)...
After lots of uncertainties and troubles (like almost every GumoManiacs album?), it is finally released: "Morbid Tales Of Terror" - produced here @Slash Zero Studio over the last 2 years. As always, it's Air & Hubi on Drums 'N' Bass and Gumo on Vocal & Guitar duties... More than worth a mention is the magnificent artwork of the great Andreas Marschall (who's famous for his work with Sodom, Kreator, or Blind Guardian, among loads of others). Get your CD copy now, as we don't know if there's a vinyl version in the nearest future...
bloodshed revolution is the name of the game
a path that's older than its breath
this world's out of disorder but the rules they stay the same
so join our legions of death
With those kind words about today's situation GumoManiacs release their new video "Legions Of Death" (filmed/cut by Hubi Hofmann, with a little help from Tom Eberl) from their upcoming album "Morbid Tales Of Terror" (which was, you guessed it, produced here @Slash Zero Studio). Watch the video, stream the Spotify, and then tell your friends...
TG Copperfield is known for his incredible guitar work and releasing several albums per year - "Talkin' Shop" being his 7th solo effort, and his 4th album in 2019... more neat facts: we nailed that album (from recording/mixing @Slash Zero Studio to mastering by GKG Mastering) in exactly ONE WEEK in August... Now can you outgun that?! The album is released by Time Zone Records - get your copy here or stream it!
Today Radio Haze are releasing "The Psychoustic Sessions III" exclusively on 10" eco-colored vinyl with fancy booklet limited to 200 copies. I produced, recorded, mixed, mastered, played bass, guitar, rhodes, sitar, hurt my fingers, sang, and made strange sounds, and had fun doing it. Air played cajon, bongos, some things that made rattling sounds, melodica, synth, sang and layouted Phil's artwork, who also guitared, drank, and sang on this record. Ah yeah, he also played a banana... (have you seen the 'making of' video?) You should definitely turn on and tune in, because the trilogy is now complete!
Radio Haze released a new video called "Have Mercy On Me" (directed by the legendary photographer/filmmaker Ludwig Van Borkum) today. Be sure to pre-order your copy of the ultra-limited, eco-colored "The Psychoustic Sessions III" 10" vinyl (which we recorded @Slash Zero Studio last year) before they're gone.
The magnificent TG Copperfield released his 5th solo offering "Magnolia" (which we produced last August in collaboration with engineer legend Hias Roithmeier), and because more is more, he also released "Common Buzzard Blues" (also produced last year @Slash Zero Studio in close collaboration with BahamaMama) together with his band 3 Dayz Whizkey. Both are released by Time Zone Records and if you want some Rock 'N' Roll, you will definitely find it here -> Spotify (TG) + Spotify (3DW)
Zeiofsd!!! Our beloved "Klienkitein" album by Afraid Of Sheep (a supergroup with members from The Prosecution, Radio Haze and GumoManiacs) has its 5th anniversary - and in that honor, I remastered it and put it on Bandcamp for you to download (for free!). Of course you can still purchase the CD or stream it...
Friday Nov 9th: GumoManiacs release "Priest Of Lucifer X" - a 10th anniversary remake of their classic debut album - via Slash Zero Records. Hubi = Production & Bass | Air = Drums | Gumo = Vox & Guitars. You should definitely grab the limited 180g vinyl or check that one out on Spotify if you already liked the original (or if you haven't heard it at all), as this is what the album should have sounded like in the first place (but we haven't had the money and technical knowledge back then)...
The legendary Young Fast Running Man releases his 2nd album "Young Bird" (which I produced, and together with my bro Air contributed lots of instruments to) via Slash Zero Records today. You should definitely check it out on Spotify or get the strictly limited vinyl!
And because that's not enough, another record's coming out this day:
Old School Punks Grape celebrate their new EP "Justylied" (which I also produced) today at Rocket Club Landshut. It's released via 30 Kilo Fieber Records and True Trash - you can order it here or listen on Spotify!
Because all of their recent 3 albums completely sold out, my bros from Ohrange released a greatest hits album entitled "Perlen". So if you missed their last albums "ohrange Album", "[er]leben", and "Wie Ein Mobile" (I produced and played loads of instruments on all of these, and Air played some drums here and there, too), this compilation is for you!
In my last post I raved about the Hertrich Bros and their cool project Attune and now they released their self-titled album "Attune" (which I mastered recently). It is available digitally and on Spotify, but they do think about going vinyl for this one soon, so watch out if you like dark, moody, dreamy vibes with roots in Downtempo, TripHop, and NuJazz while maintaining memorable harmonies and melodies.
On this particular day many many years ago was my brother's and my own release day (thanks to our parents!) and in our honor (at least that's what I like to believe) AntiPeeWee released their 3rd album "Infected By Evil" (which Air did the layout for, and his brother, who shall not be named here, produced the whole damn thing @Slash Zero Studio) - Get the limited vinyl version and then stream it!
