i'm looking for the name of an electronic musician i discovered somewhere between 2009 and 2012 i suppose, when i stumbled upon his new release on clone.nl (not 100% sure it was on clone though).
nationality: for some reason i think he's swiss-german. i think the track names were in german. or something.
he looked geeky, in his early 30s, had a beard, brown hair, weared glasses.
music on said album: sounded like a recreation of specific forms of synth-pop/ pop music from the late 70's/ early 80's.
exclusively vintage analog gear, exclusively sequenced music, nothing played manually.
very rigid, not-groovy uptempo 8th note-beats made with a Roland CR-78 iirc.
exclusively major melodies and chords.
notably, my favourite track features dominant 7th sus4-like chord progressions, playing every 8th note (i hope i got the usic theory right, i'm learning).
the general vibe was joyous, innocent, energetic.
iirc, the press release specifically mentioned the album's purpose to go back to a time when electronic music was innocent and fresh.
anyone got ideas?
