utopia cloak This release is amazing. All of my favourite sounds (and sounds that I didn't know would be my favourite sounds) arranged in the most perfect way possible. I love love LOVE this. Super fun and experimental. I can't recommend this release enough. The tape is super nice sounding and well packaged with some lovely goodies included. Great artistc+ great label. Thankyou!!.xxxx Favorite track: Aemanca Clisz.

Necrocius Some very interesting ideas here. This is a truly urban trip with echoes from the more vibrant compositions by DJ Krush at certain moments and minimal synth-pop at others. I enjoy this on my bike while cycling durch die Genge! Favorite track: Durch die Gegend.

"(...) At once swaggeringly confident and nerdily proficient, Ball Geographie makes the perfect theme music for you, no matter what kind of situation you’re in. Gotta look tough in front of your minions? Ball Geographie has you covered. Got an insane deadline on art project? Ball Geographie’s on it. Gotta hit the mall, look fly, and rock out? Yessiree, let Ball Geographie do his thing."(...)

--- Ryan Masteller on Tabs Out www.tabsout.com?p=25019

"Ball Geographie is certainly funny, weird, different; pick a word. Sometimes they (well 'he' is more likely) sound like a genuine '80s disco band, but then the music leaps into more 8-bit breakbeats, to be followed by a full-on tearjerker 'Snyrk', with lots of sampled guitars and high-pitched voice (one of the few with 'vocals'). Then next on full-on retro '80s minimal synth sound. It is a bit all over the place, these thirty-five minutes, but the perfect antidote for an afternoon of all serious music."

--- Frans De Waard in Vital Weekly 1252 www.vitalweekly.net/1252.html


Many references and elements come to mind when trying to describe Ball Geographie’s music: From Chamber Pop to Disco. From Lo-fi to High-End. Found sound referencing the likes of Studio Braun. Fully conscious use of presets, but only when they make full sense. Beats. No improvisation, everything is always structured to the maximum. 80ies vibes, folky guitars, timelessness … we could go on, but at this point leave it to you, dear listener. It’s electronic, and acoustic.

Ball Geographie lives, works and produces his music in Cologne, Germany. He loves his Boss DR-550 and its HiQ sound. Kalimbas, musical toys and dictaphones too.

Currently, shipping to all countries in the EU and UK works quite well, with average delivery times around 5-10 work days (within Germany usually 2 days).

However, overseas shipping to e.g. the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand etc. takes much longer than before. We've experienced that shipping e.g. to the US in pandemic times can take up to six or even seven weeks, the good news being that never has a shipment been lost. When in doubt, please just ask before placing an order, we'll reply asap. All purchases will be shipped asap, i.e. usually not later than 4 days after the order has been placed.

Last not least, please note that we cannot guarantee your shipments will arrive before Christmas. The comparably low international shipping costs are only possible because we ship as priority (non-tracked) mail, not as parcel (which would be way more expensive).

Thank you!
