Spring Greetings from MacAngel in Cape Town, South Africa[angel]

Whew, the last 3 months of my life have been hectic ( www.soundfx.co.za/cdnews.htm ) but I'm here to answer your questions...

I've just read through some messages on this forum & I'd like to thank you all for supporting Bernhard, AtlanticPopes, Alphaville and also for your interest in my track that Bernd ReMixed last year, "Le Mystique Sonar".

This track features on my debut album "Sample This" and can be purchased online at www.kalahari.net in South Africa (http://www.kalahari.net/mus/product.asp?toolbar=&sku=25392988&format=detail)

I'm sure that you're all curious to know when the new MacAngel album "Summer in Berlin" will be released?

Well this is all work-in-progress at the moment and I am currently in negotiations with 2 South African Record Co's about prospective Licensing and/or Album opportunities

A launch date and/or release date is unconfirmed at this stage BUT I already have a backlog of pre-orders from fans on my 'VIP' list

More soon...

10 Sep 2003, 08:32
hmmm...... sounds cool! The title of your new album.... does it have anything to do with Alphaville's Summer in Berlin?

10 Sep 2003, 08:32
Welkom Mac. Remember I am one of those VIP fans

Welcome to the forum!

Hello [wave]

11 Sep 2003, 14:26
Welcome !
Nice to have you here [beer]

11 Sep 2003, 19:16
Hope you will enjoy your stay and not only stay in the AP-forum :)

16 Sep 2003, 08:49
MacAngel is back [angel]

Apologies for my delayed responses, I will attempt to publish news updates and answers to your questions once a week.

OK, let me start by saying THANK YOU ALL for welcoming me to the forums! It is gr8 to be here and to feel your positive energy [smile]

-Time to answer some Q&A starting with "russharvey".
Thanx for your gr8 question about my new album title "Summer in Berlin"...
strictly speaking my MacAngel - Summer in Berlin album title was decided between Bernhard & myself. I wanted to use a title that would reflect our collaboration in Berlin and it just worked out that I would be in the studio with Bernd in June, which is Summer in Germany & Europe. Furthermore, once we got chatting about "Summer in Berlin", Bernd informed me of some of the Historical significance behind the title so this meant that "Summer in Berlin" ultimately had 2 conotations, gr8 stuff:)

Incedently the Alphaville song "Summer in Berlin" deals with the Historical aspect
of "Summer in Berlin".

-Now for a response to "mAjor".
Thanx for your vote of confidence Norman [wink] You have been added to my VIP order list
and once I'm ready to publish a release date you & the rest of the forum will be the first to know!

As a matter of interest, "VIP" orders will be despatched before the official launch party which will be held in Cape Town but this date, like the release date is still work-in-progress.

-"Fallen Angel", many thanx for your warm welcome and your comments regarding my 1st album "MacAngel - Sample This" [spin]
Sample This is a gr8 album which has done well for me in South Africa, after I released it independently in July 2002.
If you would like to view some pics of the launch party at Buddhabar in Cape Town pls visit: www.soundfx.co.za/launch.htm

Once again for those of you who are interested in buying a copy of "MacAngel - Sample This, final edition" pls visit: www.kalahari.net
or direct link: http://www.kalahari.net/mus/product.asp?toolbar=&sku=25392988&format=detail

PLEASE NOTE: that this album is on SALE and there are only limited CD's available. Once the current stock of "Sample This" gets sold out, NO MORE COPIES WILL BE PRESSED!!! This means that there will only be a limited number of CD's in the world and therefore "Sample This" will become a collectors item...

OK, that's it for this session, I hope you enjoyed my comments and I look FW to receiving more Q&A from all of you soon:)

Chat again in a week...

16 Sep 2003, 10:49
Is that a confirmation about 'Summer In Berlin' then?

20 Sep 2003, 10:12

A quick update regarding the 'secret' mp3 download links...
At this stage I can't release any download links due to copyright issues!

I am hoping to get clearance soon for a 'radio edit' version of {MacAngel} meets Bernhard Lloyd - Le Mystique Sonar (Alpha-Omega Mix).

The 'DJ MacAngel' ReMix of Victory of Love might not be released as permission has not been granted by the Record Company that owns the original copyright! They see this ReMix as an unauthorised mix or 'bootleg' mix (which is an infringement of copyright) and therefore cannot allow a free commercial download

I will keep you posted if anything changes...

I see that some of you have beat me to announcing the [b]FREE {MacAngel} VIDEO DOWNLOAD:
A 'behind the scenes look at {MacAngel} in Bernhard Lloyd's Berlin Studio'.

Visit {MacAngel} online for video download link at www.soundfx.co.za/cdnew.htm

1. click on the 'hot links' to download or 'right click' and use the 'save as' option...
2. please note that the 2 minute Mpeg amateur video is 22Mb!

18 Jul 2004, 08:13
I don't have any specific sales stats at this point, but I can say that I have received a steady flow of orders from around the world!

After 1 year of releasing "Summer in Berlin" (26Feb04 - 26Feb05) I'm hoping to have sold enough CD's to start thinking about a possible 3rd {MacAngel} album, but I won't be sure until 2005...

Grrreeetings frineds, Mac is back!

I heard that there have been a few "rumbles" in the forums... basically, peeps wondering where I've been?

Hey, I'm right here... checking out the "Summer in Berlin" review in this months edition of SL Mag (SA magazine called Student Life)... and moving forward, planning, assessing, contemplating the right ingridients for a {MacAngel} #3 CD, hmmm...

So anyways, anyone out there buy/order my 'SIB' CD?

...and any constructive critisism or comments?

Your opinions and ideas are important!


MacAngel out!

26 Oct 2004, 19:53
Did I saw there somewhere '3rd cd'?????

And what can we expect? Same great songs as on the previous two cd's?

Would really like more songs like 'Love is the hunter', 'Hola!' and 'Mega Mix'.

And yes, great to see you back![smile2]

25 May 2005, 19:17

I'm working on some NEW {MacAngel} material... sssshhhh, it's a SECRET!!!

Anyone like Electronic sounds like Kraftwerk???

Waiting for summerrain or anything else...[sing]

23 Aug 2006, 16:45
... and suddenly this mirror is in front of me. It must be a mirror (OK, I also had a couple of Castle draughts), because the other guy is wearing the same Atlantic Popes top as me and I am the only one in South Africa with one!! Or so I thought. And then I realise the other guy is McAngel!! It is raining and we are both in a hurry, so with a quick how are you and other exchanges we each go our own way. So what is he up to I wonder..........

23 Aug 2006, 18:53
a new cd!!!!! a new cd!!! and if it is not a new cd, then it should be two new cd's!!!!!![laugh]

23 Aug 2006, 19:01
That is a cool story mAjor, did you ask him to take a quick look at the forum again, or would that be too specific ? In any case, I´m sure he will pop in someday and say something.

13 Oct 2008, 18:43

Ahhh moon you are completely right it is pretty cheesy, like vince clarke's early stuff except they use digital stuff no analogue.
