To obtain that 80s sound, ERA was recorded using a lot of vintage gear like DW-8000, Poly-800, DX-7, D-50, W-30, JD-800, JX-3P, alpha Juno 2 and MS-20 mini.
To increase to retro-futuristic character of the vocals, tools like Chip-Speech algorithms, Vocoders and a Talkbox were used.

Ancient and Swampland were already featured by the well-known Youtube-Channel "New Retro Wave" and after a number of requests, I decided to condense the year's best tracks into an album and remaster them to make it a coherent experience.

I hope you enjoy it!

Edictum Klosterneuburg, Austria

After classical education, starting in 2002, I started DJing and music production. After playing countless gigs in various genres, I always kept a focus on melodic, classical inspired sound production wise. I am fascinated and inspired by nature and therefor am a scientist by education. Currently I am working on my PhD thesis in the field of organic chemistry, which the logo is referring to. ... more

Track Name: Keep The World
lack of communication
leading to disinclination
of the foreigner's nation
loosing your reputation

keep the world not for yourself
keep the world not for yourself
keep the world not for yourself
keep the world not for yourself
Track Name: Endeavour
we endeavour more than ever
Track Name: Art
Kunstwerke sind überflüssig.
Es ist zwar notwendig sie zu schaffen,
aber nicht, sie zu zeigen.
Wer Kunst in sich hat,
braucht den fremden Anlass nicht,
wer sie nicht hat,
sieht nie den Anlass.
Track Name: Tossed About
too many things distract me here
sometimes it's better to disappear
after regaining back control
I again am feeling whole

facing issues still to come
feeling nature keeps me calm
otherwise all energy is lost
broken down and tossed about
Track Name: Part Of The Stream
If my mind lives in a dream,
oh I can't tell what's right or wrong,
just don't feel part of the stream,
no idea where I belong.
Track Name: Not Enough
it's not enough, i work all day and never reach it
it's not enough, i try so hard and never keep it
it's not enough, what should i do to finally break through?
It's really tough, my only way is make it with you
Track Name: 1000 Faces
I'm walking down the shadow lane
feeling deep inside that pain
gazin' at the neon lights
breaking through the darkest nights

Entering a nightclub out of many
several faces - I don't know any
I'm ordering a drink for me
The pain is gone, I'm breaking free

After many years of trouble,
music helped me out this bubble,
I'm dancing now until tomorrow,
finally get rid of all my sorrow

The only thing I'm missing out
a beloved one to care about.
I'm ordering a drink for me
The pain is gone, I'm breaking free
Track Name: The End
All things must come to an end,
make sure your time is not misspent.
You should never struggle for too long,
to make decisions is nothing wrong!
