| XMTP is back!
x-marks the pedwalk announces new album autumn 2009
Sevren Ni-Arb and Raive Yarx met at Sevren´s place on March 15th to create ideas and materials for a new approach and draw the conclusion: XMTP will be back with a new album which will allready be released 2009.
There has been an album title in Sevren´s mind for a long time, which will be the conceptional base. Sevren and Raive have begun to design and construct first contents and have discussed ideas for the musical style. First steps have already been made.
I spent a great weekend with Raive. We started making plans for the future from the first moment never pausing on footsteps in the past. Now we are looking forward to a lot of creative work!
Keep your eyes open for futher news and progress on www.xmtp.de and on twitter.com

| OFFICIAL ANNOUNCEMENT: March 15th - DAY OF DECISION - XMTP BACK in 2009 ???
During the release of the complete xmtp-backcatalogue via Infacted
Digital Division there were also rumors that I have started music-production again.
So I think it´s time to tell you something more, because the truth is
somewhere in between:
1. Yes, I´ve started arranging new music infrastructure in my home and
I´ve also started first creative steps with it...
2. Yes, there is an album title in my mind for a long, long time…
But NO, I´ve not decided finally to compose a complete new xmtp-album,
Next week –on march 15th– Raive and I will meet and talk about a new
approach, we will talk about milestones, concept & ideas, musical
flows and so on...
After that we will decide if we want to go on further with xmtp.
So please be still patient at least for a few days.
Thanx a lot!

First Update since nearly 5 years...sorry! More news to come.
Last month I met AL/X/S
- you know him from U-TEK and A-HEAD - in his small
Studio in Hamburg. He is still very active in making
music (different styles). I was two days in Hamburg
and of course >>> we startet a small studio
session!!! More infos later on this place. In the
last weeks we often get some offers to make concerts
(United States, Germany, Israel,...) Thank you all
for keeping the name xmtp alive, but at the moment
it´s impossible to plan a tour or concerts.
| AFTER 15 YEARS!
In spring I met two of
my best schoolfriends on a party and we decided to
plan a meeting together with our friend Jörg
(Regan Eracs). Last week the day has come and we met
in small Bar in Münster. So after 15 years it
was the first time I met the former member of xmtp.
It was a very funny and interesting day. We all had
a lot to tell and so we decided to meet again.
| STILL ALIVE
Time is running definetly
too fast, but you know that theres is a complete album
about the circumstances of life with time by xmtp
My two boys "Lennard Christian" and "Luis
Maximilian" are growing day by day. Lennard is
now 3 years old and Luis is one year old. So family-life
is beside my company the prior "time-killer"
(of cousre with a positive meaning). Perhaps you have
read that the mother of the label dying culture (the
label where "experiences" - the latest best
of album by x-marks the pedwalk has been released)
isn´t active anymore (bankrupcy). I was very
angry about this situation and the completely unprofessional
dealing... Okay time is going on and I´m happy
that I must not earn money with music... But with
this circumstances more and more ideas are coming
up in my head and so at the moment I´m very
active in planning and constructing new ideas and
possibilities... so keep your eyes open.
| IMPORTANT NOTE!
Dying Culture... That´s
the reason why there is another delay for the release
date of x-marks the pedwalk´s "experiences".
After some negotiation DYING CULTURE have left their
former labelhome UCMG. From now on they´ll be
part of the "Mole Music labelgroup".New
release date that hopefully will be confirmed soon
will be end of july / beginning of august. So please
keep your eyes open and thanks for your patient again.

x-marks the pedwalk will
release the ultimate retrospective "experiences"
on Dying Culture. The final release date is confirmed:
12.05.2003. "experiences" will contain all
singles, certain club-hits but also unreleased material:
.„Bloom“ – this song was the latest
xmtp-track I produced at T.G.I.F. It was recorded
1 year after drawback. That´s the reason why
this song has been never release so far. „Hothead“
– was recorded during the production of drawback.
But it never fit really in the sound-design-concept
of drawback. „Here I stay“ was recorded
during meshwork and there is „under glass“
that was recorded during the killing had begun and
we have performed live once - I think it was in Prague,
but we never decided to release on any compilation
or so. Behind these real new tracks there are unreleased
or rare versions/mixes and edits of for example „missing
light“. you will find the tracklist and the
cover of "experiences" here.
