Over the past 10 years, Gorowski has released four albums on Dutch netlabel WM Recordings. His music is described as “electronically diverse” and has been used in compilations and videos, including an independent film that was shortlisted for an award (“Petzold’s Whistle”). He has received a number of positive reviews from bloggers, and in 2007 one of his albums was voted into the Top 5 Netlabel Releases for that year by Phlow Magazine.
This new release is a little special. It is a collection of all the tracks made by Gorowski over the last decade, but never released. It includes pieces from each period when the other albums were made, and some brand new tracks thrown in for good measure! They have all been carefully selected, rejigged and remastered for your ear time pleasure.

State Shirt of Los Angeles was recently interviewed on the Music Manumit talk 'cast. He works with sound for pay at his "real job" and—increasingly—his musical labor of love is also returning a profit. A former Oberheim EchoPlex Pro operator, he's grown ingrained with the Circular Labs Moebius software looper as of late because, "It's ridiculous what that thing can do."
State Shirt is currently engrossed in learning to trust and build upon his compositional instincts with more speedy efficiency. His most recent album, Life is Easy, an experiment in improvisational live-looping and hopeless desolation, was released at Bandcamp under an Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 3.0 Int'l license, and is also available here at the FMA.
Each song on the album was written and recorded live in one day—often starting out as an improvisation. Gently traveling from weird ambient swells, ghostly harmonies, funereal rhythms, freakish beatboxing, and disconcerting noises, Life is Easy takes you on a mournful march to the darkest corners of hopelessness.
"Portasoul" was written for Lost Hills, an upcoming State Shirt album to be released in Summer 2015.

In 2006 on Sascha Müller's trippy Pharmacom-rec netlabel, a serious 2-CD album appeared that excited chill out, new age, space music, and electronica fans alike. The release was the work of Frank Dorittke as "F.D. Project" and was titled MARE TRANQUILLITATIS.
It is a pure, perfect tribute to Berlin School German electronica. Fans of Tangerine Dream, Klaus Schulze, Ashra, Kitaro, or Mike Oldfield will discover a hidden treasure that sounds like Kosmische Musik composed and performed in the late '70s. MARE TRANQUILLITATIS delivers fresh new sounds for fans of the genre.
Prepare for retro futurism. Set your dials back decades, put on your giant headphones, close your eyes and drift off into space with all the cosmic synthesizers, soaring virtuoso guitars, shifting analog sequencer bass lines, Mellotron-style samples, and spacey effects so indicative of the Berlin School.
In MARE TRANQUILLITATIS, Dorittke presents future music from the past created in the present. Just like a mission into deep space, this 2-CD release has the power to remove you from the present world and fill you with wonder.
