Music that is half experienced and half remembered after waking up from a “Sekundenschlaf” in an airport departure lounge - when human and machine noises come together for one sweet moment in a smoky tapestry of sound. Listening to Waldeck's new EP, This Isn't Maybe, is like that. "You step out of a time traveling device, realizing that due to a machine-failure you have traveled both 50 years backwards, and 50 years forward at the same time," Waldeck explains.
A driving force in his native Austria's burgeoning electronica scene, Waldeck is a proponent of the Vienna Sound -- a smoky, gorgeously eloquent mix of deep-rooted, turbulent beats and soaring, luxurious melodies. Waldeck´s musical career began at the age of six with piano lessons, and ended abruptly when at the age of fifteen he destroyed an expensive Bechstein in an attempt to re-wire its innards. Not much is known about the following period except that the ensuing lawsuit sprouted Waldeck´s interest in Law, and by the time his musical career resumed in earnest he was a practicing copyright lawyer. He remembers the fateful day when his musical calling resurfaced. „It was during the time when George Harrison got sued for ripping off an old motown tune“ Waldeck recounts; „I realised the way forward was to work a melody until it didn´t belong to anyone anymore. It was at that time when he discovered the advances in music workstations which could produce a wide variety of instrument sounds. "In the ‘80s, all you could have was a synthesizer," says Waldeck. With more technologically advanced equipment, "I could arrange a whole composition." When his works became more complex, "I couldn't get the sounds I was after, so I kept buying more equipment, and that's how my electronic career started."

At one point, Waldeck and his massive collection of equipment moved to England. Ending up focused on music more than the legal research he had intended to pursue, Waldeck mixed tracks for house and techno labels such as Chocis Chewns and generally got involved with Londons triphop scene. "It was an intersting time and it opened my eyes to how the whole industry works," he recalls. Waldeck also met his vocal counterpart, ex-Incognito singer Joy Malcolm. Theirs is a perfectly synchronized partnership, "I´m the weird character and Joy is the human“ he explains. Eight months later, he returned to Vienna and quickly assumed a leadership role on the electronica scene. Waldeck released the Northern Lights EP in 1996, quickly gaining attention through its transcendent, delirious cover of "Aquarius." A successful full length disc, Balance of The Force, followed soon thereafter. Waldeck's recently formed label, Dope Noir, will strive to break other Austrian artists internationally, starting with releases by King Cannabis and Manni Montana.

This Isn't Maybe serves to bridge the gap between Balance of the Force and Waldeck's upcoming full-length disc. The inventive, hypnotic EP takes Waldeck's prodigious skills and lush, seductive sound to a new level. The undulating, cocktail-lounge dreamscape of the title track draws from samples of Chet Baker. "I was desperate for some trumpet sounds," Waldeck remembers, "I found this Chet Baker track but I ended up sampling the vocals instead of the trumpet.“ I´d heard it´s not easy to clear samples of Chet Baker, but I thought, lets give it a try. And we were lucky." "Demasked" started out as a live performance piece. "But people liked it so much I thought I´d do a studio version," Waldeck remembers. " So I filled the studio with people and recorded the track in front of them. It took 52 hours. By the time I was done they were screaming to get out, but I was quite satisfied with the end result“ he laughs. Unlike some electronic artists, Waldeck is strongly focused on live performance, and plans a major international tour in support of his upcoming album. "We found a way to transfer the basic concept of electronic music to stage," he explains. "We found a way to transfer the basic concept of electronic music to stage," he explains. "We use projections and effects to make it as live as possible. I also have a sofa and a table lamp. The Sofa is for sitting on and the lamp provides illumination“ he quips. „Sometimes I bring magazines. The true stage presence of electronic music should be like a doctor´s waiting room, but it is not a doctor you are waiting for - it is yourself“.

*** Thanx a lot to Driftwood for these lyrics ***

Defenceless

Every now and then
When i see you
There seems to be no measure of time
My feelings run deeper
Than meets the eye
The harder i try
The faster time flys by

Dont wanna be
Dont wanna be
Alone and defenseless

I told you how i feel
I said it from my heart
Tell me whats really up in here
I cant make you feel
The way that i do
Still i wont be given up on you

Dont wanna be ...
Dont wanna be...
Alone and defenseless...

Spy Like An Angel

I'm a good angel
Contract for the earth
And the redlight
Is real haunted red
Spy like an angel
Staring through a window
She's lying on her bed
And a priest under

I hear her breath
Does she hear my breath
Breathing i hear her breath
Breathing under her bed
Breathing
Breathing

But i am the star
And the rain... life..
I see the eyes
And the stars and the rain
Life..
I see the redlight
She's red
Real red
Real red

Breathing
Breathing

The eyes and the stars
And the rain... life
I see the eyes
And the stars and the rain
Life..
I see the red light
She's red
Real red
Real red

Children of the ghetto

Children of the ghetto
Running wild and free
In a concrete jungle
Filled with misery

Theres no inspiration
To brighten up their day

Wild with desperation
I would like to say
Children of the ghetto
Keep your heads
Keep your heads
To the stars.

Children of the ghetto
Always in the news
Talkless is the motto
And bitter are their bl ues
Deep inside the ghetto
Theres a unity
Councils are for sorrows
Ever misery

Children of the ghetto..
Keep your heads
To the stars

Aquarius

When the moon is in the
Seventh house
And jupiter aligns with mars

Then peace will guide the
Planets

When the moon is in the
Seventh house
And jupiter aligns with mars

Then peace will guide the
Planets..

Aquarius..
Aquarius..

Then peace will guide the
Planets....

Northern lights

My car is full of
Liquid dope
I turn the key
Inhale the smoke
Distorted through exhausted pipes
Creating folk like northern lights

Trying not to
Crash and die
Escaping the
Electric guy

Northern lights...

Wake up

Theres a guide to take me home
Led me through the night
Stood against the storm
And taught me pride

Did they weigh you down
Did they boil the salt
Did they mess you up
In your fancy loft baby

Theres a smile that broke my heart
That sparkles in your eyes
Your falling apart
Now your living lies
Did they change the rules
Without telling you?
What a suprise
Who needs who now baby

Take a break and come down
Take a chance and start
Take a look in the mirror
Take the pill to wake up

Take a break and come down
Take a chance and start
Take a look in the mirror
Take the pill to wake up
Wake up

Theres a spirit of our youth
Wont solves your thoughts
Used to care about truth
And fight against the odds

Did they make you trade
The dreams of old
Did they tell you
It was cool to be cold baby

Theres a light that you once shown
Clouded you la don ??
Everything is lone
And everybody is gone
Was life rough on you
Did it fit no more
As we fibbin you to my dorm ??
Now baby

Take a break and come down
Take a chance and start
Take a look in the mirror
Take the pill to wake up

Superpopstar

Taste my depressions
Taste my obsessions ....

Moon

The spaceship is
Waiting for you
Waiting for you
Come on babe
Back to the moon
Visit the stars
Do it on mars
Baby lets
Kiss the stars goodnight

Visit the stars
Do it on mars
Visit the stars
Do it on mars
Do it on mars

Baby

The spaceship is
Flying too fast
Flying too fast
I think baby
I was controlled
Passing the moon
Dont do it on mars
Baby
I spot a ship that made your time

Visit the stars
Do it on mars
Visit the stars
Do it on mars
Do it on mars

I was controlled
Baby
To waltz out on space
To waltz out on space....

Baby

He spaceship is
Waiting for you
Waiting for you
Come on babe
Back to the moon
Visit the stars
Do it on mars
Baby lets
Kiss the stars goodnight

Visit the stars
Do it on mars
Visit the stars
Do it on mars
Visit the stars

The Night Garden

*** Thanx a lot to Elsa for these lyrics ***

Slowly

Slowly
Disconnection makes its way, between us
Our affection drifts away to cleave us
Restitution falls away
Slowly

Slowly
Twisted information sliding by me
Mental alienation meaning surely
Your mind behind the firewall will elude me

Slowly
Disconnection

Slowly
Your hundred mile long arms
Will reach out to me
The two halves will ever be two

Tears Running Dry

No feelings left for you
My perspective's out of view
Call me distant
But my sympathy won't do

Your love was a golden maze
It look me one thousand ways
To rise above it and discover brighter days

Tears runnig dry
Years passing by
When i see our future disappearing in the sky

I'm tired of this endless race
It's time for us to close the case
Call me cold and blind
There's nothing left to see

No feelings left for me
It's impossible for us to be
Call me cold and blind
But there's nothing left to see

Tears running dry
Years passing by
When I see our future disappearing in the sky

Waiting

Walking down my neighbourhood
Empty streets
Where has everybody gone?

Waiting for the light

Street names turn into a blur
Barely visible
Frozen shadows around me
Ever so close
I'm invisible
Wainting for the light


Fallen Angel

She's at ease
With the past and the darkness
Listenning to nothing
But the soundtrack of her mind

Oh, she's alone
Drifting into insanity
The soundtrack of her mind

Fallen angel
She's inside of me

Cat People Dub

See these eyes so green
I can stare for a thousand years
Colder than the moon
It's a been so long

And I've been putting out of fire
With gazoline

See these eyes so red
Red light jungle burning bright
Those who feel me near
Pull the blinds and charge their minds
It's been so long

And I've been putting out of fire
With gazoline

See these eyes so blue
An ageless heart that can never mend

Floater

Silver eyes
Thrill me with your lies
Sentimental feelings never die

Yellow
Words upon the ground
Yellow birds
Take me to their song down
Singing

Floater, some
The wind you feel is real okay with me

Cobalt
The wolrd of colour feeling
Tell you what
The land of near and dealing
Wants you

Green back
Nine one three two five
No return
Once you've gone alive
Screaming

Soma, soma

I talk to the wind

Said the straight man
To the late man
“Where have you been ?”
I've been here and
I've there and
I've been in between

I talk to the wind
My words are all carried away
I talk to the wind
The wind does not hear
The wind cannot hear

I'm on the outside
Looking inside
What do I see ?
Much confusion
Disillusion
All around me

I talk to the wind
My words are all carried away
I talk to the wind
The wind does not hear
The wind cannot hear

You don't possess me
Don't impress me
Just upset my mind
Cant' instruct me
Or conduct me
Just use up my time

It comes from you

I feel you
You know me
I'm moving in
Your empathy

I'm moving in
Your empathy

The people come
You go with them
Bring me back
Something of theirs
Bring me back
Something of theirs
Prescription haze
Description blue
It's comes from me
It's comes from you

Morning Light

It's hard to leave you
To be without you
The further out the more alone
It's cold when I'm all by myself
Not used to being on my own
I'm trying to make it through the night
Wishing you still my side
But I'm not looking back
Sticking to the track
Heading for the light

It's you I'm missing
When I wake up
In the morning so alone
A day can be long fighting memories
When grief and doubt are getting strong

I'm trying to make it trough the night
Wishing you still by my side
But I'm not looking back
Sticking to the track
Heading for the morning light

This isn't maybe

This isn't sometimes
This is always
This isn't maybe
This is always

This is love
The real beginning of forever

You know how to turn me on
Oh you got it going on
Baby you can make my day

Memories

All the souvenirs
In my memories
Got me going down in strike

All the souvenirs
In my memories
Got me ruining my soul

All the souvenirs
In my memories
Got me going down in strike

All the souvenirs
In my memories
Got me ruining my soul

But if you tell me
What I should be offering

But if you tell me
What I should be offering
Then maybe
The sun is increasingly high

All the souvenirs
In my memories
Got me ruining my soul

But if you tell me
What I should be offering

Addicted

Any time I try to get through
Your phone is quiet and so are you
The consequence of my demand
Oh what I need

We’ve been together so long
The story moved on but we did not
The love we felt
That rescue sight of sentiment
Oh what I meant

Oh Baby come back to me
Please darling can’t you see
That I'm addicted to you
That I'm addicted to you

Oh Baby come back to me
Please darling can’t you see
That I'm addicted to you
That I'm addicted to you

We’ve been together so long
The story moved on but we did not
The love we felt
That rescue sight of sentiment
Oh what I meant

Oh Baby come back to me
Please darling can’t you see
That I'm addicted to you
That I'm addicted to you

Oh Baby come back to me
Please darling can’t you see
That I'm addicted to you
That I'm addicted to you

So Black & Blue

Why do I feel so black and blue
When all I did was loving you
Why on earth can't stand the pain
Why did you do that thing again

Why do I feel so black and blue
When all I did was loving you
Why on earth can't stand the pain
Why did you do that thing again

Why do I feel so black and blue
When all I did was loving you
Why on earth can't stand the pain
Why did you do that thing again

Midsummer Night Blues

There was a time
You read my mind
No one between us
Just sunshine
Away
Away

It felt so good
It felt so right
Somehow inbetween
A summer's night
Away

A mystic cloud
The moon above
Your eyes in mine
How did you find
Away
Away
Away

The search is gone
It's all so strong
When we were made
Somebody would disagree
Away

There was a time
You read my mind
No one between us
Just sunshine
Away

It felt so good
It felt so right
Somehow inbetween
A summer's night

*** Thanx a lot to Sebastiaan for this one ***

Why Did We Fire The Gun

Lay down your head
And show me if you like it
Lend me your ears
And read me like a book

This conversation
It strikes me
No need for words
It's all understood

Lay down your head
And show me if you like it
Wondering if there is something
We did wrong
Nothing can stop me
From shaking
Why did we have to fire that gun

Lay down your head
And show me if you like it
Wondering if there is something
We did wrong
Nothing can stop me
From shaking
Why did we have to fire that gun
Why did we have to fire that gun
Oh why did we have to fire that gun

*** Thanx a lot to krtson for this one ***

Our day will come

( Bob Hilliard / Mort Garson )

Our day will come
And we'll have everything
We'll share the joy
Falling in love can bring

No one can tell me that I'm too young
To know I love you
And you love me, love me so

Our day will come
If we just wait awhile
No tears for us
Think love and wear a smile

Our dreams have magic
Because we'll always be in love this way
Our day will come
Our day will come
Will come...
