Tune into the frequencies of Benevolent Chaos
My next album is called Benevolent Chaos, looking forward to finally share it with you.
It is an experiencing new frontier that I've been working on - digitally released in january.
"Benevolent Chaos" gives a good sense of the flow and sound that Gabriel Le Mar is playing around within the moment. On eight tracks and two special beatless versions Gabriel finds his very own way of getting his cluster of ideas across.
Musically the album is ranging from DeepTechhouse to soulful Techno with Dub influences.
With tracks like "It`s Your Time" or "On the Beat" Gabriel Le Mar is keeping it fresh and exciting, while on the other hand there are deep and atmospheric tracks like "Deep State", "Telescoping Machine" or "Evolver" with it´s in time evolving filtered movements of an electric guitar over a straight forward TechHouse groove. The beatless version of "On the Beat" is balancing melody, sequence and rhythm, while the last track "deepulse" is finishing the album in a suspense relaxation and can take one into an aural out of body experience.
The inputs and the outputs. The flipflops and the flashbacks. Flashing conservations. I`m loving my chaos. Benevolent chaos. An ideal deep state. My tribal chamber. Mental Impulses. Repercussions. Clarity and complexity. The plurality of connectionism. The real me. Ghosts in the tree.
Live in transit. On the shadow side. On the sunny side. My daily mandala. Enslaved deep underground. Investigative. On the other side of the brain. Reshaping steps inside. Inside in many ways. Getting my greatest insights. Testing my attractions. It`s my place of reflection and happyness.
Musical Immigration. Get down in my mind. Down. Down there. To go deep into and bring it up. Manifesting? Bedlam. My mind independence. My methods of dispute. My backpack. What is anything about? Replace the clear cut signs. And put the needles out of my head.
I won`t fall, Chaos rules. In peace. Oh, yeah!
Lovin` benevolent chaos.

dear spring, do you want to come back?
Puttin´On The Green Hat
Dr. Motte meets Gabriel Le Mar
Release: Puttin' On The Green Hat (PRZ008)
incl. remix by Nihil Young
Release Format: 12" - vinyl
Label: PRAXXIZ www.praxxiz.de
A track like an ecstatic dance in the glowing heat of Africa "Puttin' On The Green Hat" draws its energy from the deep and dubby tension of the earthy bass drum, surrounded by a playful symbiosis of the whirling lightness of "techhouse rhythm". The hypnotic and distorted Sprechgesang of Amampondo, like a chant of a shaman, leads the listener gently into a deep trance-like state. Pure life energy flows through each tone.
The inspiration for Puttin' On The Green Hat is rooted in the creative techniques of the "thinking caps" or "the six thinking roles" by the pioneering thinker Edward de Bono.
They involve various methods for coming up with new ideas, in which the green hat expresses creative thinking, always in search of new ideas, solutions and perspectives. Everything is allowed, anything goes.
Acting free and naturally Dr. Motte and Gabriel Le Mar were jammin´ around with their controllers and "Puttin' On The Green Hat" draws its energy from the deep and dubby tension to put the listener on a journey. Both easily celebrate pushing "techhouse styles", accompanied by continuous bass drums and share the same idea of groovin´ techno music.

SCHALLBOX RECORDS 011
GABRIEL LE MAR – DEEP RED GUITAR
Remixes by Julius Lagerfeld, Brendon Moeller, Smalltown Collective and Steve Cole`s only digital RMX
The Schallbox team around Steve Cole presenting with the spherically driving and playfully dreamy track "Deep Red Guitar", Gabriel Le Mar`s expedition through an acoustic landscape of a levitating guitar and interacting rhythm and bass elements.
The remix by Julius Lagerfeld subordinates everything to a swinging shuffle groove, and beat pharmacist Brendon Moeller brings the atmosphere carried by a deep and warm bassline. Percussive and tonal elements are being joined to form a whole by the Smalltown Collective, which invites to dance and at the same time to dive in and engross. As usual with Schallbox, there is a consolation for all those who have to do without the high grade black vinyl and will sidestep to the digital alternative - the "Digital Bonus Remix" by Steve Cole
Brand new in those deeper days
Gabriel Le Mar, Michael Heise and Carsten Schorr are going to start their vinyl-label dub2dust records, releasing electronic dance music with a special focus on the various colours of deep DubTechno and "Dub inspired TechHouse".
As artists and remixers Marko Fürstenberg, Gabriel Le Mar, Frank Leicher, Quantec, Luke Hess and youANDme will light a match this year for dub2dust, reflecting their passion and respect for the needs of a Dub head on the floor.
The dub-feeling is clearly the inspiration behind the general flavor of the dub2dust sound and will demonstrate innovative efforts to offer interesting hybrids of techno/house music.

With his first release on dub2dust Gabriel Le Mar again shows his side as a producer focussing on "dubtech music with an energetic flow".
Quantec remixed up a great dub rocker, let us get going through deep and floating dub chords and twitchy piano rolls. The tracks are a wonderful example of going through waves concerning energy and flow with one result - something more musical and playful.

Gabriel reads from Ulf Pochardt`s book "DJ culture" - german
Gabriel Le Mar nices up with his new album LEVEL
LEVEL shows Gabriel´s affinity to Techno, TechHouse and Detroit influences, while Dub sound is what connects the tunes in all the variations.
All tracks are made for the floor but also work in pure listening fun if you like music that can tell stories.
Moody floating sounds, bassy grooves and atmospheric filterworks as well as danceable deepness are the carrying elements of these nine tunes.
Gabriel is looking to find the right balance of emotion in sound and groove and to give space for floating lyricism in the music. "Palindrome", "Luxury" and "Ich flog auf dem Wind davon" are groovy TechHouse songs and feature vocal performances with lyrics by his friends Ingo Ito and George DIN, who are both excellent musicians and writers.
The album opener "Palindrome" and as well "iGeorge" put the focus more on the groovy DubTechno beat, while "Traralgon Epilogue" with its string-layers and the dubs of "Science-Faction" refer more to atmospheric "Detroit Techno".
"Luxury", "die andere Seite" and "Auf dem Wind davon" are shaping out the TechHouse side of the album, while "Twisted" continues invisibly the inevitable "french kiss" chord-stab syncopations that provide a pretty "laidback techdub tune". The album ends with a the german-dubbed version of "Ich flog auf dem Wind davon". Gabriel sends us into suspense chillz and made a great "beatless dub" out of the tune.
give it a listen
I wave numbers JUMP CUTS
Gabriel Le Mar draws inspiration from many sources. But african funk and african musical traditions and culture influenced him in many ways. On JUMP CUTS Gabriel Le Mar cooperates again with singers and songwriters from South-Africa, after having worked in the past with the band Amampondo.
A true co-work from soul-dub-brother Gabriel Le Mar, fusing tech house and dub influences with the local style of south african music like Kwaito, Maskanda and "traditional Zulu music" into modern club sound.
The queen of modern Zulu music, legendary Busi Mhlongo with her distinctive voice, is chanting on this album.
Busi sadly passed away in june 2010. "Her love for music kept the flames of hope alive during the country’s struggle for democracy. A true legend has passed away. Her music encouraged and influenced a range of contemporary South African artists. She inspired the nation and let the world know of South Africa’s quest for freedom.” President Zuma said.
Gabriel also co-opted with Lungiswa Plaatjies, Madala Kunene and Mantombe Matotiyani from Amampondo, one of Nelson Mandela`s favourite bands.
The result is a fusion of ideas that became evident through the "characteristic expression" of these artists, whose vocal performances oscillate between traditional to contemporary, and that are merged in the "techhouse mix" with a soul and dub feel.
"It is all about combining these styles, the physical energy of digital club and dancefloor sounds with hypnotic afro-rhythms and the vocal-power. It`s about to push the musical styles and to find ways to intensifying our tracks both emotionally and meaningwise. I worked with big respect for the ideas of the artists on one hand, and on the other side I focused on creating music for body and soul."
greetings to one and all!
