Tropical Fruit Mix

Tropical Fruit Mix

Horst Grabosch and Alexis Entprima with a new dance track that again goes into the leg as well as the brain. A poppy horn section, borrowed from the days of Chicago and Blood Sweat and Tears, is at the center of the song. As you would expect with Grabosch’s compositions, there are also extensive quotes from the blues and a guest appearance by the Peking Opera – all perfectly molded into a tropical house track.

Talk to Me

Talk to Me

Horst Grabosch continues to surf the wave of summer with his alter ego Alexis Entprima. Today his message is “Talk to Me”, which is always better than “Shoot on Me”. Like the last summer singles, it is electronic dance music with always different subgenres, like electro or Future House in this case. And again Grabosch invites some eclectic guests. In this song a rock band sounds from another world. There’s definitely a different way to be boring.

I Need You Now

I Need You Now

The song is a dance track in Future House style. As usual with the eclectic producer Horst Grabosch, elements from other worlds appear. The title of the song appears in the comprehensible lyrics, but is only a thematic orientation. The story is told in the music and in the cover. It is about loneliness and the desire for togetherness in a crazy world. A slowly but steadily growing listenership begins to understand the overall concept of the soul-seeker in his books and songs. Interestingly, we also find other electronic producers expanding their stylistic and sonic repertoire within a single song. The pioneering attitude of the artist Grabosch seems to follow a trend. It is no coincidence that Grabosch also urges more anarchy in thinking in his books. It is a very special anarchy that does not exhaust itself in the struggle for resistance, but refuses to obey partly unspoken rules. One could call it a liberation of the mind.

See You Again

See You Again

‘See You Again’ is a drum ‘n’ bass style track. The book author and music producer Horst Grabosch works with onomatopoetic voices in his emotional international songs. Mostly only the title is understandable in English. But this title expresses the mood of the song. Here it is about meeting again in life or even afterwards. New soul food from the soulseeker Grabosch. Easily consumable music with surprises and depth. Also suitable for chillout or lounge issues.

Easy

Easy

So how should we classify this song? The only word we can clearly understand from the voices is ‘Easy’ and that’s exactly how the song comes across. It’s not the first time Grabosch has poured out his magic over a fairly commercial base. Yes, there are a lot of samples involved, but so ingeniously integrated that soul really shines through and in addition there are his inconspicuous but pretty melodies, which he always artfully puts together from the samples or plays in himself. Easy is a song that puts you in a good mood. A young couple walks on the beach and protect themselves with an umbrella against the sun. Everything is easy, even listening, as melodic elements reminiscent of easy listening of the 90’s resound over the loose electro house groove. An eclectic mix of modern electronic music and traditional elements of pop history. Swinging chillout music.

Far Beyond Understanding

Far Beyond Understanding

From his books we know that Horst Grabosch is intensively engaged in the search for the soul. It is natural that this is also reflected in all his songs. Now here is a musical statement explicitly dedicated to the search for the soul. The author and composer uses all his knowledge of musical mechanisms to create a work that is as emotional as it is logical. Each track is worth listening to on its own, but in running through the entire album, together with the well-chosen and poetic titles of the tracks, a journey into the life of the soul unfolds, which is more than soothing background music for a meditation exercise. It is itself an acoustic meditation exercise. Whether you are spiritually inclined or not doesn’t matter with the music. Through skillfully applied psychoacoustic effects, you will inevitably be drawn into a world of wonder, far beyond comprehension. Listening with headphones enhances the pleasure.

Brasil Night

Brasil Night

“Brasil Night” comes across as kind of sad, although it has a rhythmic deep house base with gritty grooves. The glossy tourist advertising makes especially the beaches of Rio shine as a place of joie de vivre. And indeed, the song “The Girl from Ipanema” is quoted somewhat strangely in the production. As if Grabosch had foreseen it, the performer Astrud Gilberto of the legendary song by Antônio Carlos Jobim died 3 days before the release of Brasil Night. And suddenly the song gets a whole new twist when you know how badly Gilberto was criticized by the Barzilian press and how shabbily she was treated by the music producers. And just as suddenly we realize what a great artist Grabosch is. His profound message of soul is hidden in seemingly innocuous pop songs. Every song hides some musical irritation that doesn’t fit into the mainstream. Yet it is never difficult to simply enjoy the music.

Japanese Breakfast

Japanese Breakfast

Japanese Breakfast is the musical observation of a Japanese ceremony from a Western cultural perspective. Men and women have gathered for breakfast. Voices with Japanese speech sounds suggest a shy erotic exchange of the sexes. The girls first fuel the erotic fantasies with flirtatious chants before the guys respond in an emphatically casual manner. The rhythmic basis is a house groove which is adapted to the typical strictness of Japanese culture. Emotional swings are only hinted at by sparingly used elements, which then also rather stem from the culture of the observer who senses the crackling erotic tension in a seemingly completely controlled environment. The contradiction of displayed innocence and passion creates an almost palpable tension that is the enduring appeal of the music. The story is not completed and continues in the listener’s mind. This is musical storytelling in the form of a pop song. The sound space is appropriately set by unobtrusive lo-fi elements. This is eclecticism drawn with a fine blade. If you had to classify it somehow I would call it “Intercultural storytelling in lo-fi house garb”.

Lofi Markets

Lofi Markets

Lofi, lo-fi or low fidelity, lo-fi hip-hop. A fairly new building block in the genre craze. Here’s an EP from easy listening, or maybe study beats? Anyway, curious author and music producer Horst Grabosch fires from all guns as long as it serves his message. A collab/project with Captain Entprima which was designed for relaxation. Yes, relaxation must be – as usual from the academically trained old master on a high musical level. Here wonderfully simple melodies played with alienated piano sounds.

Die Geschichte von Oberförster Karl-Heinz Flinte

Die Geschichte von Oberförster Karl-Heinz Flinte

A new story by Horst Grabosch from the “Heroes of Work” series. This time the focus is on the profession of forester. Of course, Karl-Heinz Flinte does not fit the stereotype of a forester. On the cover, he looks more like a climate activist. But that is exactly Grabosch’s twist. The three episodes reveal the diversity of the activity. Flinte also occasionally shoots a boar when necessary, but he also suffers with the weakened trees and cares for the forest’s human visitors – after all, that’s what he’s paid to do. Just as with his music, he sits between all chairs, but the chairs always represent only a limited view. Grabosch always chooses individual themes and musical genres for a song, but in the process they form a whole picture over time. This picture is irritatingly diverse in terms of pattern formation. Perhaps this is precisely how Grabosch demonstrates our general lack of acceptance of the complexity of the world. But he always keeps his humorous wink.

Die Geschichte von Bademeister Adelwart

Die Geschichte von Bademeister Adelwart

With the story of pool attendant Adelwart, Horst Grabosch presents the second release from the series “Heroes of Work”. With three episodes in this maxi-single he pays tribute to people who daily make their peaceful contribution to the functioning of our world. All three contributions of German poetry and musical eclecticism have the same jazzy base and vary in the small poems in German that form the song lyrics and in the soloistic elements. We are once again surprised by the variety of styles in Grabosch’s songs. There is jazz in this song and the jazz trumpeter, who was internationally successful many years ago, shows how to integrate styles when you have practiced them yourself.

Die Geschichte von Krankenschwester Hildegard

Die Geschichte von Krankenschwester Hildegard

With the story of Nurse Hildegard, Horst Grabosch opens a new box of his imagination. With three episodes in this maxi-single, he pays tribute not only to professions that are socially important, but even more to the people who daily make their peaceful contribution to the functioning of our world. All three musical pieces have the same musical base and vary in the small poems in German that make up the lyrics of the song and in the solo elements. Other tributes to other professions have been announced. The series is entitled Heroes of Work. We are looking forward to more humorous episodes with new musical styles, as we are used to from the eclectic Grabosch.

Der Preis des Wollens

Der Preis des Wollens

This downtempo track sets to music the poem of the same name, which deals with peace of mind. The academically trained musician speaks the text himself over a charming chord progression and poetic electronic sounds. Sophisticated but pleasing “Deutsche Poesie”.

LUST

LUST

Quite a thick one! Horst Grabosch doesn’t leave it at a music album, but writes a book to it – unfortunately in German. But we have to accept that, because it is his native language. We already know the music from the singles, but it is so catchy and profound that you can listen to it more often. The book should increase the pleasure even more, because it describes thoughts and feelings about each title. Therefore, we think the title “LUST” is quite appropriate.

Christmas for Lunatics

Christmas for Lunatics

2 years ago we were amazed when Horst Grabosch, with his project Entprima Jazz Cosmonauts released a Christmas song. At that time we could discover for the first time the romantic side of the otherwise often biting artist – but only in the music. The lyrics, disguised as a documentary, revealed his biting side again. The result of this mixture reflected his ambivalent nature. Today, a clearly biting Christmas song is on the gift table for 2022. On the basis of “Joy to the World” and this time under his civil name, he takes the Christmas concern with rockets and other war equipment violently on the joke. But again, the song has very pleasing sides.

Everybody Get Up

Everybody Get Up

“Everybody Get Up” ended at the time when the 7-piece event band Entprima Live was just getting on the road to success. The first studio production consumed tons of time and passion. The name of the song should be the program for the live performances – and it was!

Roads To Neverland

Roads To Neverland

Sometimes life or the path one goes is foggy. Even if you have to take a detour, you must never forget that it is your own. Never stop dreaming and follow your red thread.

Calling Me

Calling Me

„Calling me“ is a breezy, slightly audible and dreamy dance-pop duet by Entprima Live. A song without musical repetitions in the classical context of verse and chorus. A sample choir and a telephone-sounding synth sound form the musical links between the three parts of the song. It leaves a lot of air for the thoughts of the listener.

Bleib dir treu

Bleib dir treu

The album “Bleib dir treu” is based on Entprima Live singer Janine Hoffmann’s first album from 2011, produced by Entprima Live founder Moritz Grabosch and remastered in 2021 by current Entprima Publishing mastermind Horst Grabosch.

Ich bin der Barde deiner nie geträumten Träume

Ich bin der Barde deiner nie geträumten Träume

Horst Grabosch is always good for a surprise. Not that this is the first poem set to music that the eclectic has published, but the style is new. Familiar twists appear, but with this song rock elements, a quote from historical NASA rocket launches and electronic elements give each other a hand. The German lyrics are no less confusing. Some kind of shaman promises the way to a new life, which begins “unceremoniously loud” in the “stripped skin”. The master himself sings and the tones of the melody oscillate between the tones of the familiar tempered tuning, although the former professional trumpeter certainly knows exactly where they actually belong – unique.

La quarta porta per la pace della mente

La quarta porta per la pace della mente

Fourth soundtrack from the series of Captain Entprima’s meditation music, which uses highly effective overtone structures and psychoacoustic effects to create relaxation and stimulation within a few minutes. This meditation unit is based on the keynote A. This time a melodic instrument runs throughout the piece. As can be seen from the transient response of the tones, it is an electronic wind instrument. The sound has quite a few effects that evolve over time, but the phases are constantly shifting. A very impressive performance.

La terza porta per la pace della mente

La terza porta per la pace della mente

Third soundtrack from the series of Captain Entprima’s meditation music, which uses highly effective overtone structures and psychoacoustic effects to create relaxation and stimulation within a few minutes. After opening the first door to peace of mind on the root C and the second door had root G, as expected the series continues with the root D – circle of fifths upwards. The principle remains, but the sounds change. Another wind chime and other melodic fragments. We are curious to see how it continues.

Die Würde des Menschen ist unantastbar

Die Würde des Menschen ist unantastbar

The song bears the eclectic signature of German author Horst Grabosch and the title is the beginning of the German constitution. In Grabosch’s typical style, which is somewhere between responsibility and irony, the danceable song leaves everything open as far as attitude is concerned. However, the dishonest solemnity of the movement is thoroughly destroyed.

Gentle Lights

Gentle Lights

Gentle lights also illuminate the scene on the cover photo. The song is a tribute to nature. The mix of musical elements is breathtaking. On a base of house music appear vocals reminiscent of barbershop singing. Easy listening elements also send their regards. The percussion additions make the house rhythm disappear almost beyond recognition. An eclectic masterpiece.

Hot Water

Hot Water

The song “Hot Water” is a tribute to nature. It is about geysers in Iceland – especially the “Strokkur”. Around the eruptions of the geyser, the author spans a musical arc that begins with a beguiling female voice before the tension is built up to the eruption. Clarinet arpeggios and machine voices keep the tension up until the second eruption and the beguiling female voice ends the spectacle.

Mystic Land

Mystic Land

The song contradicts all current assessment criteria of a successful pop song. Almost nothing happens in the first minute, and even in the course of the song the musical development is manageable. But almost nothing “happens” in the cover photo either, and yet the image and music leave an ambivalent, challenging mood. This mood is mysterious and must be fathomed in leisure. It is not sensational! However, nature is also not always sensational and can still leave a lasting impression.

La quinta porta per la pace della mente

La quinta porta per la pace della mente

Based on the random sounds of wind chimes, oscillating basses define the fundamental tone, while synthesizer sounds rich in overtones fill the tonal space with psychoacoustic effects. Associations are created in the listener through the use of sparse melodic fragments. The tune creates relaxation and stimulation within a few minutes. The fifth soundtrack of the meditation series is accompanied by a violent thunderstorm. The wind chimes correspond here randomly with the melody fragments – enchanting.

One More Night

One More Night

A new eclectic dance track by Horst Grabosch and dance music entity Alexis Entprima. Barbershop-like vocal samples over a barely recognizable dubstep rhythm create a new authentic dance experience – you have to hear and feel it to believe it – new and old all of a piece. If you like a saxophone solo within a perfect dance track – this is your choice.

Dance Desire

Dance Desire

Summer evening in the city. The young and old single women are full of desire for love. They will again seek their happiness on the open-air dance floor in their neighborhood. Seemingly casually, they stroll to the still empty dance floor. In their imagination the sweet music is already playing and their prince charming is already waiting for them. Hopefully it won’t remain just a dream again.

Lullaby for a War Drone

Lullaby for a War Drone

Irony at its best. A really beautiful ballad with extremely biting lyrics. Rightly, the song is marked as “Explicit”, because this is not for children or weak nerves. The war drone has no weapons yet and has to go to sleep for now. But already the next morning the good fairy has brought beautiful weapons, with which the drone can finally kill. What a beautiful lullaby! First the lyrics are spoken by a Brit, then mom and dad sing the song – of course it’s machines singing, but a layman can hardly tell it apart from real people. The machines are getting better and better at what they do.

Happy Fiesta

Happy Fiesta

That’s what storyteller Horst Grabosch is all about as a music producer. A little story told in four minutes – the emotional world and culture included. These are not sensational stories, but everyday things that make up our lives. We are somewhere in South America. People are coming together for a garden party with barbecue and dancing. All worries are forgotten for one evening.

Holiday Sunrise

Holiday Sunrise

This is the highlight of your year. All the worries have stayed at home. The water in the pool of your hotel glistens in the morning sun. It’s going to be a wonderful day. A new musical story by Horst Grabosch in collaboration with composer Moritz Grabosch. Feelings are explored that arise in hopeful anticipation and do not always live up to the reality that follows – but in this moment they are real.

Cuban Hope

Cuban Hope

Political allusions are by no means rare in Horst Grabosch’s late work, but he is more observer than revolutionary. The personal happiness of ordinary people is at the center of his interest. Cuba is a politically torn country, but the people have preserved their dignity. With the help of Ry Cooder, who brought the old musicians back into the limelight with his project “Buena Vista Social Club”, the hope of preserving the cultural roots lives on.

Gospel Train

Gospel Train

The song Gospel Train is not about religions, but about transcendence. People are searching for soul and inner peace. For the critical observer and author Horst Grabosch, spreading religious messages would be out of the question. That the guilt of religions is too great to celebrate it as well, he has emphasized several times in his writings. Nevertheless, he respects praying people who are searching for meaning in life. Accordingly, he has created this song full of hope and love.

Icy Days

Icy Days

“Icy Days” describes the feeling on a clear but freezing cold day. Even the sound seems frozen, but you feel infinitely alive. Storyteller Horst Grabosch proves his ability to transform landscapes into sound. And life also plays a role in every hymn to the landscape. Crunching ice and enchanting melodies. Voices resound from the hostile ice and sing as if there were no more beautiful place in the world.

Marry Me

Marry Me

“Marry Me” is the story of the desire for idealised beauty. The man professes his love, but the beloved remains a vague fiction. A wedding that never happens – an unusual plot for a pop song. There is no happy ending, but perhaps the feelings during the dream are more beautiful than any reality. With songwriter Horst Grabosch we enter the next dream world and underneath the house track by Moritz Grabosch reliably does its job.

Best Times

Best Times

According to the title, this song is about the best times – probably of life. Can the song make us believe that? Well, the cover shows us that it is not judged from the point of view of men, but young women are running towards an obviously happy evening. And lo and behold, a man sings beguiling enticements to the women in the song. The whole thing on a rhythmic house carpet. Overall, a coherent deep house track with a very unique sound and a very ambitious mood.

Indian Slide

Indian Slide

India is hard to beat in terms of diversity – geologically, politically and culturally. India is and will probably always remain mysterious. The song “Indian Slide” tries to make this enigma audible. Except for a tabla at the beginning, there is no Indian folklore in this song, and that is what makes it authentic. While the house beat does its work, voices sing and instruments play peculiar turns – and that is precisely the connection to the elusive India. Songwriter Horst Grabosch can be heard here on the electronic wind instrument EWI.

Time for Serenity

Time for Serenity

Time for Serenity is a compilation of songs by writer and music producer Horst Grabosch. Here the quieter songs from the years 2020 to 2021 are summarized. The stylistic range of the eclectic is considerable. The selection ranges from simple ambient tunes to complex meditation units and is further complemented by three musical stories from his stage play “From Ape to Human”.

Jazz O’Clock

Jazz O’Clock

“Jazz O’Clock” is a track from the repertoire of the former 7-piece band – composed by Moritz Grabosch. It was newly arranged and produced for the duo of Janine Hoffmann and Ingo Höbald by Marek Arnold (b-side Music).

Made for Dancing

Made for Dancing

Unlike an album, a compilation can feature different artists. Superficially, this is also the case here, but the devil is in the details, because Horst Grabosch wrote and produced all the tracks. The author started 2019 with a late comeback under different project names. It was not until 2022 that the artist profile was staked out, and the songs published until then were to appear under this profile. However, the projects were not arbitrary, but combined songs with different intentions – here are the dance tracks summarized.

Historic Moods

Historic Moods

Historic Moods by Horst Grabosch is a compilation of songs that take up historical events and comment on them in the style of the period. This compilation is virtually the meta-level of Grabosch’s eclectic approach. We learn where then the influences within his lifetime come from along with a view into the future. The voice-over commentaries speak to some socio-political details of the era not necessarily associated with this musical style in the memories of contemporaries. They are small pieces of evidence for Grabosch’s theory that the reception of the hits are essentially dominated by a transfiguration he calls “popanz”. What is meant by this is something that is transfigured into an imposance that intimidates and does not correspond to the true meaning.

Sincerely H.G.

Sincerely H.G.

Let the author speak himself: Hello listeners, this is Horst Grabosch with one of his favourite machine voices. Welcome to my second compilation of songs that came out between 2019 and 2021. This is a mixture of songs that were written for different reasons. “The Bard of Lost Dreams” was written many years before in the darkest hours of my life, and was produced in 2020. The story of “Field of Love” is also older, but was only set to music in 2021. Three socio-political songs follow. “Summer on the Island” deals with the problem of migration and “The Ways We Go” describes the situation of South African miners. The song even made it into the South African iTunes charts. Finally, “I Wonder How Strong I Could Be” is about the production of cheap mass fashion.

Spaceship Affairs

Spaceship Affairs

Let the author speak himself: Hello listeners, this is Horst Grabosch with a foreign voice. Like a late message after death – read by a robot. We know that from science fiction films, don’t we? And science fiction is my keyword. Even my second CD, which came out more than 30 years from today, was based on a science fiction novel, and stories from outer space still fire my imagination. This compilation, which brings together songs with the topic of outer space, still begins on earth. “Star Dream Waltz” is about a child’s dream of flying and airport scenes. But already with “Massive Space Shuffle” we are clearly in space. Both titles are part of the stage play “From Ape to Human”, which, however, deals more with the topic of “man and machine”. This is followed by everyday scenes from a fictional spaceship. I came up with the three “Diner” songs and the “Ambient” song as machine-produced music that resounds from the speakers during dinner or in the corridors of the spaceship – more like background music. It is quite different with the 8D tracks. These songs represent emotional moments in which four astronauts meet to improvise with their instruments in order to mentally process the endless journey. In fact, these pieces of music are based on recordings from 1995 that were meant to translate exactly this plot into improvised music. The overdubs and sound alienations are from 2021. The final track stands out because it not only contains German vocals, but also describes a fictional live scene. While, as previously described, music is normally produced by the intelligent coffee machine during dinner, in this scene there is a small concert by a young person born on board. By the way – this is my son more than 10 years ago. He stopped struggling through the music business a long time ago. Have fun on the journey.

Midnight Rumbler

Midnight Rumbler

Midnight Rumbler is similar to the Deep House genre. But since the music-producing coffee machine Alexis has very curious qualities, it spices up the song with unexpected twists. In addition, Alexis’ story shows tendencies to process human emotions. This time it is the mood of a sleepless night, where anxiety-filled sounds are interrupted by a hopeful passage of light.

La seconda porta per la pace della mente

La seconda porta per la pace della mente

Second soundtrack from the series of Captain Entprima’s meditation music, which uses highly effective overtone structures and psychoacoustic effects to create relaxation and stimulation within a few minutes. After opening the first door to peace of mind on the root C, the second door now follows on the root G. It is expected that the series will continue up the circle of fifths with the root D. The principle remains, but the sounds change. Another wind chime and other melodic fragments. We are curious to see how it continues.

Crazyplus Audiofile Disco 1981

Crazyplus Audiofile Disco 1981

This song is about disco music, which originated in the 70s and made a rapid triumphal march through dance clubs all over the world.

Daydreamer’s Dance

Daydreamer’s Dance

Can machines dream? Apparently so, because the dance music machine “Alexis” aka author Horst Grabosch delivers a very dreamy dance track here. As in the previous songs nothing sensational happens, but everything is where it belongs and the timing is perfect. But that was not to be expected from the experienced composer. There seems to be a little more to the idea of a machine as the creator of the music than meets the eye, which is not surprising given the philosophical streak of the author. Perhaps one must take the term AI literally here: Artificial and intelligence – ruminate, ruminate …

La prima porta per la pace della mente

La prima porta per la pace della mente

Let the creator speak himself: “While searching for sounds, I came across recordings of wind chimes. I was fascinated by the random sound sequences influenced by the wind. I also heard the rich overtone field typical of struck metals. Instinctively, I had to think of “Lux Aeterna” by György Ligeti and decided to try something that did not focus on melody and harmony, but on vibrations and the healing effects, as they are also known from singing bowl therapy. I tested some psychoacoustic effects and mixed the wind chimes, which are not in tempered tuning, far in the foreground so that they oscillated with the other instruments. Suddenly I heard distant melodies that are definitely not in the sound tracks. It was then clear to me that I had found something extraordinary – made for meditation.”

Space Odyssey EJC-8D

Space Odyssey EJC-8D

A space odyssey is no child’s birthday party. The infinite expanses are sometimes too much for our human minds. Even the sound spaces behave somewhat differently than on Earth. Machine noises mix with sound phenomena that our memories conjure up for us. In the middle of it all, four jazz musicians play their earthly instruments to save their souls. A music and sound adventure between distant galaxies. The writing ambitions of ex-professional trumpeter Horst Grabosch are not a new phenomenon. Already in 1995, the trumpeter’s last jazz album was based on stories instead of notes. He took up some of the improvisations again in 2021 and processed them in this album. The time between the live recording and today brought new possibilities in digital music production, which could bring out the emotions of the songs even more impressively through added sounds and spatial sound techniques. There are great solos by Marius-Müller Westernhagen guitarist Markus Wienstroer and performance artist Frank Köllges, who died in 2012.

Summer Breeze

Summer Breeze

“Summer Breeze” was written by Horst Grabosch for Entprima Live. Janine Hoffmann and Ingo Höbald are co-authors of the final version. The title is about an elderly couple reminiscing on a balmy summer evening in the autumn of life.

Human and Machine Have Unlimited Fun Together

Human and Machine Have Unlimited Fun Together

Do intelligent machines have dreams? If so, they are likely to dream about the emotions of their creators. Of sex and love and fun. They will develop projections in which they dance with girls, and have endless fun. Creating the music for that is the least of their problems. Since they are directly connected to the internet, they will find the building blocks there, along with their emotional impact. In this case, the music-producing coffee machine Alexis finds the band Lynyrd Skynyrd as inspiration and translates the music into a contemporary electronic dance track.

Le Chant des Sirènes

Le Chant des Sirènes

The song is inspired by Greek mythology, where sailors are lured to their deaths by the beguiling song of the sirens.

This Is Your Life (Unplugged)

This Is Your Life (Unplugged)

“This Is Your Life” was the closing track of Entprima Live for several years and was re-recorded in 2021 in an unplugged version by Janine Hoffmann and Ingo Höbald.

Field of Love

Field of Love

“Field of Love” makes rudimentary use of the recitative and aria form. In the two recitative passages, a recitative by Johann Sebastian Bach from the St Matthew Passion is quoted in the accompanying parts. The song is spiritual in a way because the hope for the scientifically unimaginable is described. What is meant, however, is rather the emotional side of hope as a counterpart to the despair at abuse of children. The abuse of children is a terrible crime against humanity. Whether it is sexual abuse, the use of child soldiers or other mental cruelty, there is no excuse for it. We are left only with the sweet hope that love will ultimately win the race.

Happyplus Audiofile Rastafari 1971

Happyplus Audiofile Rastafari 1971

This song is reminiscent of the great era of reggae and Bob Marley, as well as the Rastafarian religion, which was founded as early as 1930, but only became known worldwide through Bob Marley and reggae.

When Machines Dance

When Machines Dance

Who would know better how machines dance than a machine itself? Fortunately, “Alexis” is a machine – at least according to the human inventor Horst Grabosch. What we see as a pure function of robots is apparently a ballet from the machines’ point of view. The machine simply thinks up the appropriate music for it, because how bass and horns stimulate the human’s dancing leg is no secret to artificial intelligence. The result is a trance-like dance track that would fit in any dance club in the world.

Dance in a Mysterious Blizzard

Dance in a Mysterious Blizzard

Dancing can take place anywhere and under any conditions. This dance title defies extreme conditions, when fatalism and unbridled joie de vivre meet. Thereby it is surprising that the supposed music machine Alexis knows what joie de vivre is. Probably the creator of AI Alexis, Horst Grabosch, sometimes comes to the aid of the machine. The machine then finds the ingredients for a successful dance track itself in a huge reservoir of found objects from the Internet. This is modern eclectic music and easy to consume as long as the mainstream devil has not yet taken over the listener.

Emotionplus Audiofile X-mas 1960

Emotionplus Audiofile X-mas 1960

When Christmas is just around the corner, memories, emotions and a critical view of world events sometimes form a wild alliance.

Sounds within Liquids

Sounds within Liquids

Born from a tiny cell, born in a liquid, we come into this world as children, and we leave our world as the same children. We need not be afraid, for we carry the beauty of creation within us. That could be the plot of this EP. The songs of the Captain, aka Horst Grabosch, are only inadequately assignable to a genre. “Ambient” is too casual, because there is too much storytelling in the little pieces of music. There it is simply worth listening several times and explore the many subtleties in the sound works.

I Wonder How Strong I Could Be

I Wonder How Strong I Could Be

Pop music is usually the ideal companion for shopping orgies in the well-known cheap stores for teens and twens. However, this song can spoil the mood, although it comes across quite poppy. It reminds us a bit of Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way” and that’s not exactly well-behaved either. “I Wonder How Strong I Could Be” is about the questionable production conditions of the fashion industry. In particular, the two aspects of environmental destruction and the exploitation of wage workers are addressed. Typical for the author Horst Grabosch are almost inconspicuous cross-references to completely different topics. For example, the intelligent, singing coffee machine “Alexis” from the stage play “From Ape to Human” makes a guest appearance. “It’s a little hard to understand what you are singing, Alexis,
but for a machine not that bad” says the commentator at the end of the song. A special form of humor.

From Ape to Human

From Ape to Human

This compilation is the audio version of the stage play of the same name by Horst Grabosch. Three young couples meet regularly for an evening of dancing, but the Covid pandemic throws a spanner in their works. The computer scientist Paul proposes to present his just finished coffee machine “Alexis”, which he himself has equipped with artificial intelligence, on the planned evening of the dance meeting. Allegedly, the machine can produce music videos in the shortest possible time on a given theme. They agree on a plot that deals with the development of the ape into a human being. Normally, “Alexis” is supposed to follow the instructions of his humans, but “Alexis” turns the tables in the course of the evening. In ten danceable songs, “Alexis” tells his own story, which in the end blows up the company of the six friends, leaving the hosts pensive and doubtful.

Danceable Mountain Walk

Danceable Mountain Walk

A relaxed mountain walk. Dancing through the mountains. Warming Up in Lower Regions – Reaching Upper Regions – Enjoy the View. So this is a mountain hike as imagined by a machine, because “Alexis”, an invention of author Horst Grabosch, is supposed to be a machine. Yes, it is conceivable that an artificial intelligence would produce such dance titles, but we still hear a few twists that foreshadow human creativity. Besides, we doubt that a machine could create such a relaxed, happy mood. But we’re happy to be taught better, and after all, we don’t care who we can thank for this musical fun.

Avoid Cable Cars to Mountain Peaks

Avoid Cable Cars to Mountain Peaks

It is not a song in the conventional sense. It is rather poetry with music. In fact, there are already fans for this kind of poetry and on Spotify there are some suitable playlists. But there, the music is more like an acoustic bathtub for the speaker. The pattern is “poetry = soft sounds.” A bit too simple for our taste. In our opinion, the potential of the music to comment on the content of the text and not just lay out an acoustic carpet is wasted here. Now to the meaning of the poem. Someone has a choice between a cable car to the top (the meaning of life) or a very arduous walk. The protagonist chooses the long walk, forgetting what he was actually looking for. He meets an alpine shepherd who rests in himself and together they find eternal life in silence. There is an English and a German version.

Soul Purifying Wind

Soul Purifying Wind

Listen and feel the wind that cleanses the soul. Mixed with musical sounds that warm the heart. “The wind has no language,” says the accompanying video, and that is a message. Sometimes words don’t help. The music on this EP is mysterious, and our clear favorite is the song “Majestic Purifying Wind”. Over deep basses, equally deep horns blow and one floor higher, metallic sounding female voices resound, reminding us of the well-known women’s choir “Mystere des Voix bulgares” – a dreamlike scenario.

The Blue Cavern

The Blue Cavern

Feel the magic of a beautiful cave with the sound of dripping water and magical sounds. The EP consists of three variations of the same cave sound, which when heard one after the other, create a sound bath of about six minutes. While a cave tends to be associated with coolness, however, the soundscape is heartwarming. And soundscape is certainly a better term than music in this case.

Summer on the Island

Summer on the Island

An explosive mixture of relaxed summer atmosphere with a disturbing theme. While refugees fight for their lives in an inflatable boat, holidaymakers enjoy the summer on the island. The Entprima Jazz Cosmonauts strike a new path with this and the previous single. It’s about keeping a constant eye on the problems on our earth without taking away the joy of life which ultimately gives the strength to resist.

The Ways We Go

The Ways We Go

“The Ways We Go” is a song about miners. The mood of the music is as gloomy as the mines where the hard work is done. To a dragging dubstep rhythm, the protagonist sings about his work, which cost him his life at a young age. The despair is palpable, and the indifference of fellow human beings is also thematized – “Let’s dance to forget – let’s forget the regret”. This is not a song to dream to. “I have to go before the sun is rising – I will be back when life is gone” is the last line of the song.

Riding the Brandnew Car

Riding the Brandnew Car

A relaxed ride with the brand new tin horse can be a great pleasure if the horse has enough run-out. Starting the Engine – Heading for the Motorway – Highway to Neverland. Who the hell is Alexis Entprima? You have to dive deep into the fantasy world of writer and music producer Horst Grabosch to get an answer. The appearance of Alexis as an artist identity is preceded by a stage play by the author: “From Ape to Human”. In this stage play, there is an artificial intelligence named “Alexis.” Actually, it is a souped-up coffee machine that can produce music videos and develops very idiosyncratic traits. At the end of the stage play, Alexis is demoted to a dance music machine – and here is the dance music machine with its first EP. The songs can actually be listened to very well while driving and dancing is also possible – but not while driving. You can decide.

Dance Studies

Dance Studies

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

Stronger Than You Are

Stronger Than You Are

Often you’re stronger than you think. Your physique is usually strong enough by nature. Only the mind often stands in our way. Believe in yourself. Fly higher and feel lighter. But stay on the ground. This song is meant and composed as a kind of mantra. Repetitions as a means to strengthen one’s faith in oneself. Try it. Stand in front of the mirror every morning, look into your eyes and say that you are a valuable person. Do that for a while. And then watch what that does to you. Much success.
