Mother Tongue and Discrimination
Quote: No German-language title in the Top 100 of the Official German Airplay Charts 2022.
BVMI Chairman Dr. Florian Drücke criticizes the fact that not a single German-language title can be found in the Top 100 of the Official German Airplay Charts 2022, thus setting a new negative record for a trend that the industry has been pointing out for years. At the same time, the study shows that the variety of genres listened to, including German-language music, continues to be great. In the music offer of the radio stations this is not reflected however. The fact that songs in German don’t play a particularly big role on the radio is not a new phenomenon, and the industry has addressed and criticized it many times over the years.
Meditation and Music
Meditation is increasingly being used unfairly as a label for relaxing music of all kinds, but meditation is more than relaxation.
Eclectic Electronic Music
After a long search for a suitable genre or term for my recent musical productions, I have found in “eclectic” the appropriate adjective.
Choice between what?
Of course, we condemn the war in Ukraine, but what choice do we have after that?
God of Fullness
Scientific cosmology and spirituality are not opposites. The idea of a creation – of God – cannot come from nothing.
About Holistic Entprima Weeks
To bring my little world of diversity closer to the listeners, I created the “Holistic Entprima weeks”.
Trivial music can be dangerous
Music consists of organized sound, rhythm and optionally language. This generous framework is sometimes dangerously reduced by our tendency to simplify.
Engagement and Vanity
Engaging for a better world is a long-distance run. You probably won’t be able to reap the rewards.
Algorithms and Pigeonholes
The brave new world of the internet and social media channels has also brought us a new dimension of classification mania.
Overpopulation & Demographic Transition
Calculations show that we are heading towards a global peak in human population.
Freedom does not work without regulation
Freedom is the antithesis of despotism, but in democracies it needs vigorous limits.
Leave your language bubble
There is a longing among many people for harmony between cultures. But their voice remains unheard outside the closed bubble of their mother tongue.
Progress is not achieved by fulfilling majority expectations
Majority expectations are also called mainstream. Constant feeding of the mainstream leads to stagnation, and stagnation means death.
We have to be able to withstand complexity
We like to create bubbles of hope so as not to despair. Yes, you fight for the good and ally yourself with like-minded people.
Young vs. Old
Conflicts between young and old are also called generational conflicts. But why do they exist? Let’s take a look at it. First, let’s remember the different phases of life.
I am infinitely sorry that you, SOPHIE, did not have enough time of life. But your fans will never forget you, and as of today you have a new fan – R.I.P.
Electronic Music Is Not a Style!
Unfortunately, “electronic music” has become established in pop music as a kind of style description. This is not only fundamentally wrong, but also distorts the view of the whole for young listeners.
Is Diversity Confusing?
You don’t fit one hundred percent with the current trend, so you don’t get an existing stage
Beethoven vs. Drake
It is fundamentally undemocratic when value systems are artificially kept alive. The decisive course for humanistic and fair value systems is set in education.
Is Pop Music Becoming More and More Boring?
Research shows that the hits are getting simpler and simpler. Is this a picture of the entire music market?
From Beethoven and Free Jazz to Electronic Pop Music
Producing Electronic Pop Music was a happy return of the inner child. What a miraculous coincidence at an advanced age.
Music and Emotions
An ironic refraction of the basic emotional attitude, which is undoubtedly a condition for truthful music, can be helpful.
My Global Approach
The world has changed much more through science and technology than the keepers of the past preach to us.
Young Artists and Record Labels
The artist’s drive is passion, and passion often shifts the profit expectation far behind, depending on the survival model. Record companies do not have that much patience
Machines, Poverty and Mental Health
Machines, poverty and mental health are the three main issues that concern me – and they are all partly related.

Spaceship Entprima | The End of the Story
Entprima Story Insights | Sometimes stories come to a sudden end. This is what happened to the story of the Spaceship Entprima.
This is the beginning of a story about a storyteller. When former professional trumpeter Horst Grabosch returned to the music business in 2019 after more than 20 years, he did not yet know that this would not be the late career of a musician, but that he would henceforth tell stories in word and sound. Who enters electronic music production at this time as an old-timer, starts with EDM – what else? But already the first attempts show treacherous runaways into realms outside the mainstream. The way was prepared. | EEMM Autumn 2022
It’s June 2019 and music professional Horst Grabosch has returned to the music business after a break of more than 20 years.

The New Approach
Let me today speak about a new approach of Entprima. When musicians try to get into the music business, they have a huge problem. If they are totally newcomers, no label will be interested in them.
