New Album From Kebu, To Jupiter And Back, Features Vintage Analog Action

YouTube Preview Image

Reader Sebastian Teir, aka Kebu, has a new album coming out, To Jupiter And Back, that is chock-full of vintage analog action and a tribute to some of the ‘the gods of synthesis’.

We’ve featured several of Kebu’s synth jams previously, but if you’re not familiar with his work, the teaser video above offers a taste of his new album.

Here’s what he’s got to say about it:

This album is a tribute to the great synthesizer music that I grew up with of artists such as Jean Michel Jarre, Vangelis, and Mike Oldfield.

The album consists of music made only using vintage analog synthesizers, recorded in the old-fashioned way, using only sequencers, tape machines and analog mixers, which gives the album a very warm and organic sound.

The album is to be released May 2nd. Details at his label’s site.
