He was born in Coburg, Germany in 1965 and has lived in Berlin since 2009. After initially being a student of art in Kassel in northern Germany, Burnt started to focus on music exclusively from the late 1980s onwards. He went on to attend the Academy of Media Arts in Cologne as a postgraduate student and began to publish his musical works along with his studio productions in 1979. He also began performing live around the same time, both of which soon attracted the attention of the Cologne electronic music scene. From there he progressed to various notable music collaborations throughout the 1990s on projects with the likes of Can´s drummer Jaki Liebezeit, Hayden Chisholm, Root70, Steve Jansen and David Sylvian.
In 2000 Friedman launched his own record label, Nonplace, with 41 releases to date. His studio and on-stage partnership with Can drummer Jaki Liebezeit, now dates back 15 years; the two musicians have developed pioneering electronic-acoustic music, so called “Secret Rhythms”.

The New Law - The Fifty Year Storm | Album


This is the third chapter of the unknown hero, THE NEW LAW, who is leaving the barren waste after the battle at "High Noon". He joins some fellow fighters who venture out to sea, to escape certain death of the old land, and they sail forth to explore new worlds. He gradually learns the way of the sea through the rolling waves of the journey, but on the red horizon ahead, there's something brewing: something dark and sinister... and he's unwillingly heading straight into the storm of it.

"The New Law's 'The Fifty Year Storm' continues where "High Noon" left off. It's a beautiful, cinematic soundscape of warm electronics and chill horns that makes up the perfect soundtrack for the new year." - John Richards (KEXP, The Morning Show)

"THE NEW LAW - The Fifty Year Storm gets a "five"... it's "DJ Shadow meets Ennio Morricone in a post-apocalyptic wasteland and they kick some ass together and we get to watch". 5 out of 5, - Trippin the Rift

"This album takes you on a gorgeous and exciting adventure where action and crisis stand off against one another. A majestic album. " - Earmilk.com (Top Albums of 2012 So Far)

"Full of magnificently widescreen compositions blessed with a dazzlingly diverse instrumental palette." Dave Segal, 'Data Breaker', The Stranger

"The Fifty Year Storm is one of the best instrumental hip-hop albums that I have heard in quite some time... The Fifty Year Storm is hard for me to not listen to every day" - Innovative Music Blog

"An epic, wide-screen, and unapologetically dense blend of hip-hop-&-trip-hop that's laced with seething breakbeats and a web of samples and acoustic and synthetic sounds." - Textura Review

The New Law - High Noon | Album


An epic journey of deep, chest-pounding hip hop and broken beats layered with hypnotic soundscapes and mind-warping synths that create a beautiful balance of dirt and space.

"One of the best albums from the underground I've ever gotten."
- Kaska Paluch (editor-in-chief - www.80bpm.net)

"One the best and biggest surprises for me this year was The New Law's releases...beautiful, emotional, cinematic... Its near perfect"
- John Richards (The Morning Show, KEXP 90.3FM)

"The New Law sounds like moody, atmospheric, largely instrumental trip-hop genius."
- Ethan Georgi (properlychilled.com)

"This duo is versatile as can be. Ambient is a word that’s thrown around a lot. The New Law has proven that they know the meaning.”
- Dan Vidal (Urb Magazine)

"Deftly arranged, orchestrally inclined hip hop that evokes Ninja Tune's glory years and Portishead's doomed-romance aura."
- Dave Segal (The Stranger)

Watermark - Drop | EP


Nowy projekt Marcina Cichego ze Skalpela.

Mimo, że Igor Pudło i Marcin Cichy wrócili do wspólnego tworzenia pod szyldem Skalpel, obaj producenci nie zaniechali autorskiej twórczości. Najnowszym tego przykładem jest projekt Watermark, który właśnie zadebiutował EP-ką zatytulowaną „Drop”.
W minimalistycznie opakowanej kopercie z wyciętym kształtem kropli znajdujemy płytę z czterema nagraniami, układającymi się w ponad dwudziestominutową suitę. Otwierający zestaw „I” osadzony jest na wolnym rytmie perkusji, który wnosi melodyjne dźwięki klawiszy zanurzone w ambientowym tle. „II” ma bardziej oszczędny ton – koncentrując się na wolno płynących smugach onirycznych dźwięków.
