Hitmusik aus Deutschland out now – produced by Assemblage 23

Cover art for Commuterpop Hitmusik aus Deutschland
Commuterpop Hitmusik Maschine at Museum of Technology in Stockholm, Sweden

This is a lovesong to, and a parody of, german music; from Karlheinz Stockhausen and Conny Plank, to Kraftwerk and Rammstein, who all have had an influence on all modern music and musicians.

One version is produced by the futurepop/Industrial/electro icon Assemblage 23/Tom Shear; the idea started out in his crowfunding project.


This song is very different compared to what I have done earlier, and I bet this will surpise you in more than one way;
One thing is that I “sing” solo on an recording for the first time, also that I’m a into the land of EBM/industrial with some guitar combo. Inspired also by Ultravox, themselves inspired by the german krautrock scene.

The song started out as my contribution to “the Challenge” (read more about it here)

Hitmusik aus Deutschland – original version




Commuterpop feat. Assemblage 23 – Hitmusik aus Deutschland



New two-track single out


Artwokr for Commuterpop "121212"
You can never guess what’s in the picture!

Following my date tradition, I follow up the singles “101010” and “111111” today with “121212

The track “121212” (Click the triangle to listen) is a upbeat, funky song with horns, hammond and swingy percussion on a solid bass drum bed.

Actually the beginning of the song saw the daylight a couple of years ago, and enhanched with some rearanging tips from my extremely multitalended brother in law Carl Arsenic

Nobody said its gonna be easy (Click the triangle to listen) is a path I will discover more, somewhere in the borderlands between cinematic music and experimental.
The title refers to the listening experience of the song…. 🙂

If you prefer to download both, with cover art included, as a zip file you can do it by following this link.

If you want to hear them first, just click the arrows in front of the title.

“11-11-11” – first tryout is a bit funky thing, however not yet really finished. Consider it a work in progress.


“How about our dinner invitation”  i a moody, chillout ambient song with some lightharted quirky sounds to complement it.
It was originally published in 2009 on the now closed Tunited site, Midge Ure’s project of nurturing bands into the business, and the title was a humourus way of reminding him that he hadn’t answer our dinner invitation when he and the rest of Ultravox was coming to play in Stockholm…:-)


First songs published!

Here you have it: the first two published songs on this site:

1) Techno for grownups
2) 101010

Consider it a single; haven’t had time to make a cover, but I’ll keep the time limit, todays date is 101010….:-)

Techno for grownups is a “tounge in cheek” take on modern dance music, arranged in a more “traditional” pop way.

It has been described/compared toYello, Orbital amongst others.
Other peoples responses to your own music is sometimes quite surprising! 🙂

101010 is a slow, moody, ambient electronic track, suitable for a dark evening in a sentimental mood, perhaps.
It has been described as early John Foxx, urban futuristic, the Orb amongst other.

Download and enjoy!
