Come Together: Berlin singer-songwriter Eric Eckhart will make a record with your help.

There’s plenty to be said for the Do It Yourself approach to making music. Eschew the labels, take control of your own marketing and booking, then distribute your music online. It’s an ideal approach, but not as easy as it sounds.

Berlin based collective A Headful Of Bees have bandied around a different approach. The collective is made up of writers, musicians and other artists.

This week they are pooling their energies around singer/songwriter Eric Eckhart and his latest album, in an approach dubbed Do It Together.

The concept came together when Eckhart and other Beeheaders were speaking at different conferences over the last few years.
“All these great ideas were floating around but no one was really doing them,” says Eckhart. “There are really so few people who are doing it well, or successfully, and even fewer people who are doing all of them. So I thought it would be really cool to take all of these ideas that no one really seemed to be doing and do something.

Leftfield Electronica from Idklang and Cordyceps

In the mood for some somewhat noisy leftfield Electronica? Then you’re in the right place! Idklang, artist moniker of Austrian producer Markus Steinkellner, has teamed up with Cordyceps for a few tracks of howling and bleeping madness (interspersed with moments of worried calm). Cordyceps create an evolving sound mass of glitchy break-beats, abstract riffs, closed-circuit feedback and layers of droning noises. Gotta love ‘em!
