Secede

Lennard van der Last (1984; Nijverdal/The Netherlands) shook hands with his computer just a little while after he was liberatedfrom the kindergarten: at the wondrous age of 8 he started out using trackers to create his own electronic music. Before thatjoyful encounter he loved taking control of his brother’s keyboard; more than the piano lessons he perfunctorily attended to atthat time.

Lennard van der Last (1984; Nijverdal/The Netherlands) shook hands with his computer just a little while after he was liberatedfrom the kindergarten: at the wondrous age of 8 he started out using trackers to create his own electronic music. Before thatjoyful encounter he loved taking control of his brother’s keyboard; more than the piano lessons he perfunctorily attended to atthat time. The piano lessons ended prematurely, but never dampened his enthusiasm to make music. At the age of 12 Lennardexperimented with synthesizers and other musical gear. Old tapes from that era prove his remarkable talent for atmosphereand melody.

As time went by, Lennard made some likeminded friends in online communities, resulting in a contact with established electronicartist Proem, who recognized his skills, introduced him to the Merck label and asked him for a remix on the minidisc. label N5md(2001). And like it’s common in the electronica-scene, the internet played a leading role offering the possibilities of getting andsmoothly staying in contact with labels and other artists. This way, Lennard stayed in contact with Merck and two remixes forMachinedrum followed. These tracks induced the label to ask Lennard for a Secede full length album, now known as Bye ByeGridlock Traffic (Merck 2003). Although still unnoticed in the Netherlands, Secede stole many hearts mainly in Japan and theUSA. (Unfortunately his obscurity in his motherland is no surprise; staying unnoticed in the Netherlands as an electronicmusician is as easy as it is for one to find a hair on Chewbacca. « hide
