This MP3-CD represents a special phase in the history of FAX. Pete Namlook who was on stage a lot during the 80's playing Jazz-Standards and a lot of his own repertoire with his Jazz-Rock-Fusion formation “Romantic Warrior” wanted to make a difference with the live performance of his Ambient/Chill-out sound. As a lot of artists in the Techno/Ambient scene at this time just pressed “play to start the tape” he sought a greater challenge, composing an entirly new set while playing live on stage. Collecting some sounds during the pre-performance soundcheck and probing for the lowest possible tone that let the glasses at the bar dance and off he went. Often technical problems before and during the set caused trouble so it was a jour- ney into sound and composition against all odds. All CDs have been recorded live (VI-Zurich/Switzerland,VII- Berlin(Interference-Loveparade)/Germany,VIII-Brussles/Belgium, IX-Amsterdam/The Netherlands, X- Ft.Lauderdale/USA and XI-Berlin(Interference-Loveparade)/Germany). Recent developments in mastering technology allowed Pete Namlook to improve the sound of the original releases for this MP3 collection by completly remastering each set. Of course, original cover graphics areagain included in the 12 page color booklet and as all the original releases aresold out, you will find them on the internet only for a lot of money.
