Sundaze, (09)

Hello, Sundazers today i return to Burnt Friedman.   Friedmann was raised in Kassel ( Documenta) where he studied painting, performance and video at the local art college from 1984 to 1990. Before he'd already been recording sounds and self-built instruments.  His free spirited style defies easy categorisation, yet over the years his trademark sound became easily recognizable even in his remix work for other artists.
Burnt Friedman has become an unavoidable maverick over the last few years. His many musical incarnations, from his jazz-fuelled collaboration with Atom™ to the electronic perversions of some of his solo projects, rarely help to create a complete portrait of the man. His inspirational creativity had him more or less take charge of David Sylvian's Nine Horses project... Beside his musical activities, the 42 year old German also heads Nonplace Records, has produced numerous records and is ...much more at my nov 06 post , here

Nonplace Urban Field - Golden Star (96 flac 404mb)

NUF is closer to the outskirts of genre hybridity occupied by the Orb, Transcend, James Bong, and Uwe Schmidt, bringing house, techno, ambient, dub, jazz, and genres unnamed into close proximity. Although NUF's first full-length work leaned more toward wholesale genre integration, subsequent releases tended increasingly toward abstraction, constructing complicated, often humorous amalgams of dub, jungle, electro, jazz, and Latin.

A jam-packed hybrid of new tracks and remixes from his previous three albums, Golden Star is also the most satisfying, consistently engaging N.U.F. release to date. In addition to a handful of new tracks which follow up on Friedmann's previous mini-album's (Raum Fur Notizen) warped, idiosyncratic charm, Golden Star features such artists as Scanner, Pink Elln, Solid Doctor's Steve Cobby, Porter Ricks, Pluramon, 8m^2 Stereo, and O. Braun pulling, twisting, clipping, weaving, and otherwise abusing N.U.F.'s source tapes. Drawn through as many individual styles as Friedmann is apt to combine in a single track (experimental ambient, house, minimal techno, funky electro-jazz, downtempo, and rapid-fire drum'n'bass), the album is uniformly intriguing, each artist taking full inspiration from Friedmann's stylistic restlessness.

Drome - Dromed ( 95 flac 445mb)

Friedmann's signature commitment to accelerated mutation with respect to convention is clearly nascent in his Drome work, most obviously in his knack for odd combinations. Although Friedmann's releases as Drome have thinned in recent years, the name is widely regarded in association with the development of downtempo breakbeat and trip-hop, with a sample-heavy ambient- and dub-influenced take on hip-hop-styled beats and a clear, atmospheric nod to home listening over the dancefloor.

Hey Rho -- The second Nonplace file is corrupt. It hangs at track 10 (the second in the archive) and doesn't continue. Thanks for posting a new version of track 10, but that doesn't solve how to acquire the rest of the tracks beyond that point. Any chance we could persuade you to rip disc 2 and repost it all again?

hi ..

i wonder how you can put up all this "not your music"
for free full download here, is there something i missed on the internetz concerning "artist rights" to their recordings .. ? i'm not personally offended by this, but i recon my good friend burnt would be ..

pls get in touch, i'd like to learn from you about these things ..

best, from köln, e. / 8m2stereo @

Hello 8m2stereo,

Did you by any chance read the comments, someone had been searching for this for 10 years, Burnts nineties music just isn't available not even at Amazon germany let alone Myself i havent been able to get my hands on Some More Crime for many years. That said i feel Burnt is an artist that doesnt look back but moves on.

I run this blog with respect towards the artists, at the same time i see the music industry as the big enemy of artists and public. At Rho-Xs, as a rule, i stay clear of any recent releases (younger then 5 years), in fact i think on average what i post is well above 10 years old.

I've posted Friedmans work because he's a cool character, deserving more exposure then he gets in the english language media,-not sure how it is in Germany, im sure he's the man in Koln. The fact that he just recently, with Nine Horses became better known, had nothing to do with it, i've bought his work 10 years ago, maybe you feel that work should be kept away from the public, but to be honest, i find it hard to believe Bernd would prefer to keep that space between the public ears for other music.

Best of luck,

I always found his early works (drome especially) superior to the more recent ones.
Thanks for sharing!
