Baskyl (*12.02.1960) is based near Frankfurt, Germany.
Interested in electronic music since early early 1970s.
His first public appearance was in 1980 with his Punk-Band “Trixi B. Cehn” (which is a phonetic pun for the german phrase “Trick 17”, meaning “sudden, unexpected trick”). This band was formed two days before the gig, consisting of four schoolfriends of Baskyl. They split up directly afterwards.
It was 2003 when he published “Cloudspotting” under the name “Baskyl”.
His next sign was the release of “TR!P 2 T!T4N” (Trip to Titan) in December 2007.
A concept-album, inspired by the automated landing of the Huygens-probe on the Saturn-moon Titan. Musicwise he developed a rollercoaster style-mix, which can be tagged as hardstyle, trance, electro-rave on one hand, on the other as mellow, downbeat, chillout and ambient.
He improved his skills of assembling and piling up samples with the release of “Far beyond home” in December 2008.
This was taken further by “Monochrome Rainbow Snorters” in June 2009.
Another step forward was “Shapeshifter Soundbender”, released December 2009.
In January 2010 Baskyl released a compilation of the more mellow tunes: “Paradise Café 2 A.M.”
The next release “Looking up” in November 2010 covered a wide range of electronic, trippy, psychedelic chilled-out and neo-jazz tracks.
Baskyl’s next leap was the online-diary “Sunday Goodies Season II”, delivering one new track each sunday. This project ran from November 2010 to April 2011, with a total of 31 new songs.
His latest scoop was the release of “Eclectic fusion” in October 2011. Based on “Sunday Goodies Season II” 17 tracks were rebuilt, remixed and remastered. “Eclectic Fusion” even saw the first collab with Berlin based electro-artist and singer “berlinuli”.
He made some well-received remixes of tracks from artists of the famous independent “Pixie’s Palace” stable.
Baskyl was supported by the australian artist Pixieguts, Wolkenfahnderin, Syl20h, Cloudspotter and Alec Pine (aka Trashhead), who delivered stunning remixes and mashups of some Baskyl-Tunez.
