Numerical Exercises

A small and free download album from Helvetikone.
Numerical Exercises was developed with the idea to build songs around numbers, rhythmically or tonal, in any way. This was not meant to be strict in every aspect, but mainly used as a starting point for the compositions. The resulting mini album catches up where Helvetikones previous album Bubble Hum ended.

Download the whole album with artwork as FLAC or MP3 release.

Bubble Hum

Approximately five years after Helvetikone released his first EP on Digital Gadget/Front, the Berlin artist returns with a full length album. 'Bubble Hum' appears softer, more melodious and mature than his earlier works, but doesn't fail to confront the listener with healthy frostiness and asperity. Eduard Müller, the man behind Helvetikone, has been everything but lazy over the years: His composing is closely linked to the evolution of Renoise, the famous tracker software he programmed and takes care of every day. The worldwide Renoise community is growing, and so is the music of Helvetikone: 'Bubble Hum' offers a raw dose of passionate electronic music no one can rebuff. 'Bubble Hum' by Helvetikone marks the first CD-Release on Digital Gadget/Front, it will soon be followed by a full length by Jeff Pils.

dgf #4


"Laptik", the first compilation on Digital Gadget/Front, features various musical approches, constrasts and parallels, sending out from a bunch of glowing Berlin harddrives.
Long awaited new stuff by mighty Helvetikone is featured here, combining uncompromising beat programming with deliciously subtle pads from the dark side, and another dubby piece of music by "Don Knispel" Bogger.
Several contributions by neighbouring artists make this vinyl round: Menu:Exit, heads of glorious Berlin label Underscan, throw in a heavy downbeat stomper, while Jeff Pils stages some bass-driven fireworks of chopped up digital percussion ...other than fabulous cco artist Miwon, who mixes straight and steady drumpatterns with disarming melodies, coming to a really heartwarming result.

A1 Helvetikone - Nothing (4:50)
A2 Bogger - Don Knispel (5:55)
A3 Menu:Exit - How to get a Basket (3:44)

B1 Miwon - Make my Day (4:53)
B2 Jeff Pils - Hazelnut (4:08)
B3 Helvetikone - Komm und Geh (3:26)

Release: Summer 2007

Glenn Dambo EP

Bogger is back. And kicks out another shining vinyl on digital-gadget/front. 'Glenn Dambo' takes Bogger's idea of electronic music on a new level: While the focus on small slices of atmosphere and dry beatstructures is stricter than before, the amount of darkness increases. And the funkyness remains. Who the hell is Glenn Dambo? At least we know who Bogger is: A DJ, responsible for a lot of unforgettable Nights in the clubs of Berlin and elsewhere. He is also a member of the interactive performance-group 'laptoporchestra'. Two completely different conceptual spheres, which Bogger easily concatenates on 'Glenn Dambo'.

dgf #2


The second release on Berlin based electronic label Digital-Gadget/Front is the debut of Bogger, who is perhaps best known for his uncompromising resident DJ-Sets in Dönerlounge, Berlin. Bogger's music is a synthesis of atmospheric Detroit-isms blended with starkly metallic EBM elements. His e.p.'s four tracks were produced primarily by means of tracker-software developed by his label-partner Helvetikone, the use of which has dragged Bogger away from the otherwise safe environments of Logic and Cubase and into the alien worlds of hexidecimal glitching.

dgf #1


First Mini-LP by Helvetikone, the alias of one half of Taktik, a laptop-live-project from Berlin. The sound of Helvetikone slides between splattering beats, digitally sampled chaos and powerful pressure-acoustics. This release exhibits his definition of darkly atmospheric sound-shapes as well as clear melancholic melodic structures.

A1 Sometimes Better Than (1:53)
A2 Grmpf And You (3:15)
A3 Alone For (3:42)
A4 Glut And Me (3:43)

B1 Wrecked Because Of (3:37)
B2 And You Thought I (5:22)
B3 Helvikone (3:20)
B4 Before I (3:25)

Release: November 2003
