Oct 26

My 1st album „You Decide“ was rereleased on Basswerk!


Oct 13:

My remix of Ultima C & Danoo „Trail of Tears“ came out


Sep 29:

Apart from a lot of „Noises“ on soundcloud.com/greenman, I have managed to compose some Ambiences and Listening Adventures for #coronanw #notd #kulturnrw project. Check:




September 9: My track „F*** Sentimental“ came out on Revolver-Sounds „Gun Talk“, a compilation also featuring Veak, Junx, Mad Vices, Bassface and more...


September 9th: I started releasing „Ambiences of the Day“ under my real name. I was very sad that my father gave away the old Grotrian Steinweg Grand Piano I learnt on, but I was able to sample it for a few hours before it went away. I have been working on the material and have created two ambiences with it so far. One is heavily working with Mutable Instruments Beads, the other one alos, but mainly incorporated a self-tuned sampled instrument. I have learnt how to microtune all my instruments now using oddsound MTS-ESP suite, which I also reviewed in professional audio.

Whatever you do is a result of everything that happened before. However weird it may have been.


August 25:

My video based on Favas footage for my remix of Enea & Fava's Dust was voted Best D&B video of the year in the new german D&B Awards!


One cant take awards too serious, but I like that it makes  people check things again when there is a selection... big up Enea & MC Fava !

I like working with video, this is motivating. I have pictures in my head when i listen to music....this one wasnt easy, but we wanted to make it happen...so we made the efforts....thanks, Phil!

July 31st: My new Logic Pro Book is released (Rheinwerk Verlag)


July 30: My album „You decide“ was rereleased on bandcamp

June 26: My remix for Hardtwald x MB Valent came out. I like MB Valents video for it


May: I am working on Noises and Ambiences for my project „Noise of the Day“ as a special during the Corona crisis. The aim is to capture special sounds from nature and gear. We will see how this develops

April 2nd: My release „All Eyes“ with singer „Dany“ (also known as Farayi) is out now on basswerk 46. This is a project focussing on emotional sound with microtonal experiments and a cinematic touch, supported by Musikfonds/Berlin and Neustart Kultur program. I‘ve also made a video for it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nteAnJhmu_s.

Jan - Mar: I have been testing various equipment including: bitbox, bluebox, Ableton Live 11, Maschine+ VocAlign Ultra, Keystep 37, Novation AFX station for professional audio (german only) and am working on some genre-independent tracks and noises

Dec 21 and 25: I did a very unique track with Navigator, I came up with a sketch and he started singing about this deceased father … it took me some time to get this one right…and to find the right time for it, I guess its now, I wish you all the best. Official release is Dec25th, starting today it is out as freebie/pay what you want on basswerk.bandcamp.com for a short time!


November: During lockdowns, I have posted a few tests and improvisedjams... there will be a special release in december, more pieces to come and some airplay on Dec31 13h @ 674fm. #Novemberjams #kulturnrw #coronakultur


Oct 31st: Our regular basswerk event didnt take place due to COVID #19. That‘s a shame cause we couldnt do it last year either since Gebäude 9 was fully overhauled and we were really lookin forward to it - same as on April 30. This time Sehvermoegen and I did two Basswerk Session/ Gebaeude 9 style videos with my new tracks on Function UK (Junglist Soldier Rmx & Who‘s weird?) So always ask yourself when someone makes you feel crazy: Who‘s the one who‘s really weird? And lets all be a bit weird every now and then.



October: For beatalistics Records, I did an athmospheric vocal breakbeat track and a mixtape. You can find it on Spotify, Bandcamp, Apple Music..but now its also released as a limited edition Compact Cassette. I‘ve always been a Cassette fan, so I love it. Get it here: https://buff.ly/3eI2CPc. The mix is also in all digital stores. #Novemberjams #kulturnrw #coronakultur

August 14: My remix of Enea & MC Fava‘s  „Dust“ came out. It uses some self-tuned Synths and oldschool beats. It is accompanied by a video with comic style animation I made myself based on MC Fava‘s Footage. Fava and Enea have been working as „beatalistics“ in Soth Germany. Fava has also released with Keeno, Klute, Logistics and Seba on Hospital, V-Rec, Commercial Suicide and Spearhead. He also performed with Etherwood @ Hospitality on the beach or @Sunandbass and Liquicity. https://youtu.be/_6ePX-THASc?list=PLF3EB371C656AB917

July 3rd: My EP with Steve Digital (Function/Metalheadz) is out on Function (Function 501) feat. Junglist Soldier (w/ Digital, Freeze, Ras Abraham, Sabrination), Hijacked (w/Digital) and Who‘s Weird?. Its also featured on a DnBarena Spotify Playlist. Edit: Now also on a Shy FX Playlist!

May/June: I recorded Basswerk 11 vinyl (Damn Wire/ Copper to iron, mastered by Simon @ The Exchange and put it up for free! Bandcamp also includes some sound examples from my performance under my real name @ Klang & Raum Festival, Koeln, St. Gertrud, November 2019. When performing live, I improvised over it, so this is just the „barebone“ and very raw, but I still like it, so I decided to give this away for free/ pay what you want.

Do April 30...    Basswerk x Deegree x Drop That Stream in den Mai .. DJ&VJ performance with Sehvermoegen

Marcel Panne and I have been performing at "Basswerk Sessions" @ Gebäude 9 since 1998 - varying intensities in sound and picture. I'm aware there is a new wave of formatted Drum & Bass "in town", but to me this is what the genre is about (this is 1hr of our stream without the transmission interferences incl many dubplates)

Friday March 7: Synaesthesia Liveact...  who am I? Heiner? The Green Man? Philo saw me @ Klang & Raum and asked me to do something between Ambient & Jungle.... I always love that approach... it happened @ Niehler Freiheit...the last event before Corona...it was spooky...we knew it was coming, but we ...just did it one last time.

Saturday Jan 11, Basswerk Session @ Gebaeude 9 Koeln again - feat. Document One. Gebaeude 9 has been totally renewed.

November 17 18h under my real name I performed an Ambient Set @ Klang & Raum/ St. Gertrud. I plan to do more ambient stuff in the future - some tracks do have a soundtrack vibe.

In 2019 my album with Kingz was released (The Green Man & Kingz - Changes), followed by: The Green Man presents: 22 Years of Basswerk/ The Collab Sessions. Thes two CDs feature collab tracks which I did with: Aquasky, David Boomah, Brian Brainstorm, Chevy, Digital, FR33M4N, DJ Freeze, Gourski, Kammerchor des KMGV (Kölner Männer-Gesang-Verein), Kingz, Klute, Maria Kublashvili, (MC) Navigator, Numinos, Thorsten Quaeschning (Tangerine Dream), Gregor Schwellenbach, Seibel, Skarra Mucci, Triou, Ultima C, Zera

I’ve been working on this for more than 2 years now. The project received a funding form Kulturamt Koeln. 2019 will see the release of many more tracks from this project, including collabs with Navigator, Can Top, Bermooda. Digital, Daddy Freddy, Marvel Cinema, Brian Brainstorm, Seibel and many more.
