Renowned beatlovers, Christian Bachmann & Martin Wackerbauer make up what has become Stockdorf. They came together and recorded their sounds in a small village in Bavaria, Germany (Stockdorf in fact). This is what happened when they managed to sync their wild and untamed analogue machines and get things onto disk.
Mastering Engineer & Mind Field Manager - Nicholas D'Ombrain loved this unique miss mash of odd synth riffs and saucy bass notes. With drowning distortion and remnants of clarity - and he gladly accepted the challenge to remaster the works from several ageing years ago.. Somewhere deep out of a concrete cellar.
Bachmann and D'Ombrain both worked very hard to reinstill life into these raw and edgy live basement recordings to bring them somewhere back into the realm of acceptable standards. Some tracks were recorded with accidentally high passed bass and others were really really squashed dynamically, so it was a mean feat to try and bring some of this back. But now, the album sounds just the way it should - A little rough around the edges but ultimately raw, innovative and exciting!
We're glad it was not left on the old hard drive to inevitably rot in time.. Because those special musical moments are indeed better when shared!

Try to imagine French band Air if they'd taken some LSD and spent the night in a German bunker before recording Moon Safari.
