rngmnn & Light & Wallace – celeste (and variations) has just been released on 1798.
the original version of this track was done in early march 2014 and was handed over to Light & Wallace. the result is 8 different versions of celeste, forming an 8-track collaborative dark ambient album that is running for 1h27m14s.
remember the promise that you’ll hear more from _smh and me?
we kept that promise by having formed a new musical project called radarkontroll.
our first music video is online now: radarkontroll – listen. music, all audio by ronny engmann; vocals, all video by _smh. dark ambient meets spoken word, all that is accompanied by relaxing visuals.
i’m back from berlin’s first edition of “deadline”, a new demoparty. i participated in the streaming music compo and became 4th.
this epic industrial/acid track was tweaked and recorded live prior to deadline’s deadline, both to test my current live gear and to finally get back to doing some acid music. have some: dalezy – crimson mask.
rngmnn – absurd antagonist is out now on your favorite dark ambient label – 1798!
absurd antagonist features 5 dark ambient tracks, this time going a little along the direction of 80s movie soundtracks style synth-driven ambient.
the material was produced and recorded between january and april 2014.
2014 took a little and interesting turn, music-wise. i started to work with berlin based artist and djane sandra m. heinzelmann, who is otherwise known as _smh. the first released collaboration effort is our take on the 1980s top group tears for fears’s song “change”.
vocals recorded by kelly wells at sweetzer, west hollywood – vocal

keep your ears peeled, there’s more to come from us!
the deutsches symphonie-orchester berlin is currently holding a remix competition, based on antonín dvořáks 9th symphony.
here is my entry: rngmnn – into a new world. this drone/dark ambient piece is on the storytelling side of things. this is my take on “into a new world”.
nagz gathered a few of his old tracking scene buddies and got this compilation done: for the better remixes.
a variety of styles is being provided by the hypergiant, curve quartet, parsec, makunouchi bento, jean nine, bassrack wobama, bacter and rngmnn. check it out!
zalza gathered a bunch of chiptune musicians and the outcome is zalza vs. the world. michu, alk, josss, beek, xyce, dalezy, wiklund, malmen, joule, cold storage, scattle and floppi are part of the lineup.
you can listen to our coop tune over at soundcloud: zalza & dalezy – rymdskepp.
sander/focus crafted a neat logo for me, which is going to be used in further dalezy-releases. i also took the chance to incorporate this one at facebook. check out dalezy at facebook, and give it a thumb!
the fine lads over at ufomammoot released their online shooter mammoot control, featuring my c64 version of rez’ “unreal superhero” from 2001. mammoot control already got some nice features in various magazines, check it out!
i put some of my older c64 material up at soundcloud. check it out!
there’s more tunes to come, especially some uploads from my non-chip backstock are in order.
this one came off as a surprise release at x2010, the netherlands leading c64 only party. linus and i had a coop going in early 2010 and this is what came out: 8580 doped pigs, 6th place at x2010’s music compo.
sixtyfour million ways to listen, chose 2: c64 data / youtube (actual 8580-recording).
i decided to give independent music sites a go again and joined up with reverbnation. 3 of my c64 songs are up there, as well as 2 videos.
check http://www.reverbnation.com/dalezy if you wish, i’ll put up more tunes throughout the next weeks.
it was about time to shape up things, so here we go – 1mhz.org is all back, nice and shiny. with that recent makeover, most of the news until 1999 were also dug up from the
grave archive and brought back to life.
anders over at chipflip brought this to my attention. a guy called htheb stole chiptunes by some artists from the demoscene and sold them on an album, claiming all this being his work. among them was one of my old amiga mods from 1996 (“back to the roots”, released at mekka96).
then it turned out that he nicked even more – he put a good load of stolen chiptunes in a bunch of nintendo ds games. this is going to be interesting!
(the pic above shows my chiptune being played in good old fasttracker 2)
it’s been some time since i last uploaded some chiptunes to 8bitcollective. anyway, here’s 2 c64 tunes from 2005 and 2008:
- dalezy – trollhumpa, from triads demo called sphaeristerium
- dalezy – plattenbauknecht, the winning entry from breakpoint 2008’s oldschool executable music competition
the picture above shows the music data for trollhumpa, it was done in jch editor on the c64.
the second release of 1798 is out, check out the latest three-headed dark ambient beast: rngmnn – skogsrået, available at bandcamp and last.fm. a teaser has been put up at youtube.
next to that, we in triad finally released manifold, a c64 musicdisk with tunes by ne7 and a remix by me.
a new year, a new label, and, who would have thought, a new release! 1798 comes forward with its first release, a dark ambient and environmental soundscapes 4-track ep: rngmnn – strvnýe. these tracks were recorded between 2004 and 2007 and finally compiled in 2010 in order to become “strvnýe”. check it directly at the 1798-labelpage, bandcamp or at last.fm. kerberos, which is part of the ep, has been put up at youtube.
out now on finland’s supersupersuper: rngmnn – further. further‘s a four track ep, available for download. if you feel supportive, buy the ep at junodownload, prelisten at supersupersuper and last.fm.
finally out, and as the underground tales spread, under mystical circumstances which involved battling an army of monkeys, is a 16 track compilation entitled 15 tracks from binkcrsh. dalezy – dog is god is the one that i did. a few others on the roaster are lackluster, toyz’r’me, dissolved, karl marx stadt and newt. photo courtesy of the brave warrior who made things happen.
underscan records‘ now series finally concluded with a compilation featuring remixes of some of the tracks that appeared on the single now-releases. i had a go on menu|exit’s querverweis, keep your ears peeled for that one over at the release page for now remix.
we in triad released another five year plan:
a c64 musicdisk called sounds of the amiga. it’s consisting of remixes of some really awesome amiga tunes. along with those comes a nice menu for the tunes to chose from.
i also did the tune for iopop’s excellent remake of the crystal intro. the visuals were done by our very own spot, also from uprough fame.
right, that’s 2 intros. number one is starring stan and me, bearing the name comet, with the same being the theme of the show. it’s all done in 4k and we’re proud to report that it became 3rd at the function demoparty which took place in hungary this year. the other one would be resistance is futile – the winning intro from this year’s main party which took part in marseille/france; done by h2o, pasy, brainbox and me. all hail the art of compression, for we still have our lives zipped on a disk.
here’s the video versions:
“Previously released as a set of four 12″ records the compilation series titled “NOW” is finally available as a sixteen track CD. It reflects the contemporary musical focus of Berlin based Underscan Records. Featured acts are recording artists FRANK BRETSCHNEIDER, SCANNER, DALEZY, GRAM, SOMSHIT, ONETHEMA and MENU:EXIT as well as guest appearances from FUNCKARMA, LAMBENT, FIBLA, EVEREST and others. Freaky Tunes and tiny breaks, cheesy sounds and lousy mistakes. Experience the Underscan cosmos and discover a world of aural pleasures, take a trip to the wild side, NOW or never!” -underscan records, 2008
out now on binkcrsh – hecq: golden pines. dalezy – cold wire is my contribution to this one. the other remixers are worth to be mentioned as well, those being: lackluster, such broken glass, blaerg, dissolved, photophob, archos and modex.
- dalezy – arkham 1798 (1st place newschool executable music compo)
- dalezy – plattenbauknecht (c64) (1st place oldschool executable
music compo) (.sid)
mp3 recordings are yet to follow, temporary bad luck for those who don’t want to deal with .exe, .d64 and/or .sid-data.
rngmnn – jag tände en eld i det mörka krypta, a track from 2005 is out now on dark vault 2/enoughrecords.
3 new upcoming releases are being rumored, more info is coming up. you’re going to like those. promised.
also, there’s new stuff from the chiptune-front:
my remix of zac mckracken has landed, sort of.
for those who didn’t know – zac mckracken was spawned by lucasfilm games in 1988 and was next to maniac mansion the leading graphical adventure game on the c64.
throughout the years (and to slightly exaggarate on my part) i had hundreds upon thousands of takes on the zak mckracken theme, yet this time i finally finished my remix and submitted it to rko. download my zac mckracken remix right here.
also new: dalezy – immoral coil, a c64-tune that came 9th at c64.sk’s annual sidcompo. yay!
a belated post, but somehow the release of this one managed to sneak inbetween the other releases without getting any mention.
so there, ps – friends reinterpretations of unreleased 332 variations volume 3 is out on mirakelmusik since 02sep07. i did a remix for that one, that one being cereza negra.
check the whole release out at mirakelmusik.
malewitsch by still became 1st in this years bcnparty 64k intro competition.
get the executable or the video-recording and the soundtrack of the intro.
the track itself is of rngmnn-like dark ambient nature, i decided to release it as dalezy anyway as it is a demoscene release.
if you don’t know still yet, it’s a berlin based demoscene collective that i’m part of, feel free to check the other releases as well, it’s all worth it.
billy hauptmann did a short video using one of my tracks. check it out!
in another news, there’s new new stuff, demoscene-related even, open your ears:
- bitjam vol. 1: solaris – a downloadable dvd, containing the biggest pc musicdisk that ever got released.
- orange/triad (c64) – featuring a remake of one of my dreary old tunes from ’92! childhood memories are yet again being packed into contemporary c64 goodness.
- superior art creations pack #35 – “that is not dead which can eternal lie”; sac’s only been sleeping, we’re back once every 2nd year.
right, july is 8bc-month. the demons called, i answered.
i’ll give my best and support the mighty 8bitcollective with at least a chiptune a day. go here. check out stuff. make your friends suffer. now.
right, this month’s mission is a-chiptune-a-day-for-8bc. check out my profile page at 8bc as more old chiptune-joy is being added throughout july. keep your ears peeled for 30 chiptunes!
i submitted 2 of my c64 tunes to 8bitcollective: murmur from 2003 and spotlight from 2005. check http://8bc.org/members/dalezy/ for more old but fresh chiptunes!
we in rebels came up with a kickass musicdisk called rebellion, featuring music by virgill, chromag, ne7 and me. it runs on windows and osx, check it out!
breakpoint is over and it proved to be a successfull event yet again. error 23 a
c64 demo by resource and the dreams where i did the music for, was nominated and won the scene.org awards for best demo on an oldschool platform.
i also competed with 2 tracks in the oldschool and newschool executable music compos which you can download directly here:
a new full lenght rngmnn release – “twentyseven” is out on grundruck.
a 12-track cd album filled with creepy dark ambience by yours truly. free tracks and ordering information are available at grundruck.
i did 3 new tunes, all of them being minimal techno/acid done on my c64 in jch editor:
hvsc 10 years, a c64-musicdisk for hvsc’s 10th anniversary was released today. it feaatures music by glenn rune gallefoss, aleksi eeben, chris huelsbeck, dalezy, deetsay, drax, goto80, maktone, jeroen tel, laxity and a bunch of others. you shouldn’t miss out on this item!
in 2004, gary hill of the music street journal and i exchanged some lines about my older dark ambient track “mask of yog-sothoth” on autoplate’s first compilation named “bauhaus”, in order to become part of his book “strange sound of cthulhu”, alongside other lovecraft-inspired musicians.
2 years later, the book was finally released, check it out!
the cover art was done by joe vargo of nox arcana.
- dalezy – another rush of blood (c64), the c64 version of my tune another rush of blood to the feet. became 5th in the oldschool music compo.

- fourking by decadence, i did the loader-tune, britelite did the rest. became 2nd in the c64 4k compo.
and on the pc-side of things there was:
iopop and i worked on a short but effective 6-part c64-demo called stillout. there’s no video available of it yet, you have to load it up in the c64-emulator of your choice!
2 new chiptunes are out:
what an amazing show!
let’s scroll a few days back. being a part of the c64 turrican 3 team and being rolled out on the large end, i had quite a bunch of ingame-tunes left. iopop, twoflower and me got in contact and we finally came up with this awesome c64-demo called “the throckmorton device“. it became first at floppy 2005, a c64-demo-party, held in helsingborg in good old sweden. after floppy, i joined forces with triad.
for the people without a c64, here’s the video of the throckmorton device.
dalezy – c64 session 01 031017. it took some time, but i finally decided to upload my c64 session from my last years gig in the wmf/berlin. [-♫]
i finally got back to doing something visual again, that resulted in rngmnn getting a facelift. new music will finally find it’s way to this site sooner or later.
verderben.org finally became official now, i’m in the process of
dragging all the remaining files over to this very place.
with that, there’s some new urls for either rngmnn and dalezy. the consequence for my rngmnn-site will be a new layout again, sometime ((maybe) not so) soon.
+ because my last gig in the wmf in october turned out to be
quite successfull, i decided to do more live-stuff with my c64s in the
future, instead of using my old laptop-setup.
the location for the next gig has changed, i’m gonna play using my c64s at wmf instead of the maria am ufer. alongside me there’s krill doing
the visuals, using his c64 aswell. the lineup is finally confirmed now,
the event will be lead by plaid/warp, menu:exit/underscan, dalezy/underscan + krill, modeselektor, remoteworker, marius reisser and transformer.
all that taking part on the 17th of october, the location will be wmf (cafe moskau) / karl-marx-allee 34 / berlin(+ger), starting time will be about 23:00.
i’m back from evoke which took part last weekend in cologne/germoney. i’m glad to announce that i won both, the 4channel and multichannel music-competitions there.
the date for my next liveact is also set for the 17th of october this
year. it’s taking part @ maria am ufer in berlin. this will also be the
first time ever that i play out using 2 c64s only, so if you’re up to
something rare, you should consider going there. in case that didn’t
sound interesting enough yet, a more promising lineup will be announced
this place got a new dress again. i’m having fun with some more self-done rotating images this time. nothing else is new, other than i got some new/old hardware: my 4th amiga. a new/old second (well, 4th, if you don’t count the long dead machines) 8580-powered c64 is arriving soonish, my very last money got spent in that for further liveacts.
a new chipmusic disk is out as well, get scoopex ‘n’ chips 2 while it’s hot!.
one of my old mid-90s scene-projects, the emissions chiptunedisks, an
ellaborative effort by international chipartists and the first one of
it’s kind in the pc scene, got featured at modsoulbrother, hosted by h0l/mono211. thanks for that.
old but good news: i reached both the 2nd and 3rd place at the
breakpoint 2003- and sidwine#2-c64 music competitions. both tunes are
available right here.
on another note, some caring people kept asking if it’s possible for me
to put up either mp3-recordings of my c64 tunes or the respective c64
executables, because they find it hard to enjoy c64 music in an
emulated environment, such as the pc and its sid-players. this will be done step by step during the next days/weeks, so
stay tuned for more mp3s, aswell as the executables at my chipmusic-related page.
i finally put up the site which covers (almost) all of my past and present demoscene-activites. with that, i also managed to make my released c64 sid tunes, aswell as some 200++ of my old tracked tunes available. check it out!
a new 20 minutes ep finally hits your eardrums; rngmnn – escapism is out on fukk god lets create. it features two of my tracks from mid-summer this year.
“rngmnn who is best settled to dark industrial ambient environments transformed the theme of AKs album to his point of view – distant bleeps and syntax errors.”
make sure grab it! also, coming up next is a 2-track ep on fukk god lets create.
new layout. i got pretty bored with all that ascii and the
bwr-colorscheme. nothing more to add as of right now, other than i
don’t see that i’m putting any sid files online before the beginning of
july. on another note, i’m currently working on a demoscenerelated dalezy-page, all i’m waiting for is to finally find links to my older released tracked work, aswell as the one and another chiptunedisk i contributed my work to.
v/a – bauhaus is out on autoplate. download the whole compilation for free, my part is rngmnn – mask of yog-sothoth.
also, i received another logo from dipswitch/bm, the logos got put into rotation now. any more ascii-artists out there who want to join the fun and participate on these pages?
coming later this year: a re-release of several older knarkhora irma tracks on 7″ on honeyspiderthree records.
also, the layout got changed. the ascii graphics were done in golded on amiga, using the XEN-font. the whole thing got screen-grabbed afterwards, because it looks awful in standard pc-system fonts.
after about a month after my harddisk decided to go !”#%$&’*+(),-.
again, i’m kind of back. i didn’t do any backup of my latest output. my
next big action will most definately be backing up important parts of
my brain before i start trusting thee evil machinery again and laying
down any of my bigger efforts on the hdd:s.
i’m currently back at making c64 sid tunes. i’ll start putting them
online in the not so soon future. also, there’s another new layout of
these pages online now, it doesn’t look healthy on netscape aswell, but
as i said before, i stopped caring about the everlasting
we’re starting around 22h at nbi berlin, schönhauser allee 157.
on the list are: menu:exit + dalezy + * v93r / -z / pxp + farmersmanual + xdv.org + john dekron.
next event: netzwerkpartituren, part of the musiknetzwerke symposium, at filesharing (raumerstr. 40 / berlin prenzlauer berg).
i’ll play out alongside menu|exit, visual art is coming from philip geist.
a more or less rational decision has been made. it turned out that i
will not continue with either synth ethic, knarkhora irma and
null.profil as single projects anymore.
i decided to merge synth ethic with dalezy again.
knarkhora irma and null.profil became full components of what i will continue releasing as rngmnn.
stay tuned for more dalezy and rngmnn releases in the near future.
underscan records is present at this years phonokomm, a sub-event of germany’s popkomm. the underscan artists contribute to the 14-day exhibition with several live-sets, alongside other visual artists that produced small videoclips for our soundbits.
the first video, aswell as the recorded live session from me is available since today, 12:00 cet. new videos and live-recordings from the underscan artists, such as menu|exit and gram, will be added daily.
i finally came to get this place in new shape.
two new reviews are up too, read more here.
new pre-listening tunage of forthcoming releases is on the way, as i’m
building a “listen” section after some time again. there’s nothing in
there right now, watch out for new things coming in the next few days.
“dalezy – face on mars” is finally out on underscan records.
it’s limited to 300 “12 vinyl copies and is available in sorted stores.
you can also get it via mailorder (which also includes the video to
“face on mars”).
oddly enough, about the same time the scientists at the mars global
surveyor destroyed the myth of the actual face on mars by taking new
pictures of the hill around the mars-cydonia region. the viking1 did a
good job on making myself a believer of the face-theory though.
the new, even more minimal pages are up. i decided to take down the
pages for knarkhora irma, synth ethic and my awful blog, don’t wonder
about a 404 page in case you come there by a link from another site.
also, a short note on my music that’s available online on mp3.com: it
won’t be available for long anymore and so are the few dam cds that i
released over there. their free hosting service ended some years ago
already, but they finally offered me to either sell out to them or
delete my pages, so guess i took the right decision.
latest release: “knarkhora irma – stolid“, out on IBOL records first compilation called “sonis a priori“.
my participation on the show at the institute for contemporary art in
june this year has been cancelled, sorry to everyone who got promised
to get in touch with me there. though, you will be able to see
menu|exit and gram of underscan fame playing out live over there, so
don’t break your plans for june yet.
on sunday 15.04.2001, i’m going to play at the 2nd bubble.beat.sunday,
which is also the underscan records pre-release party for my release “dalezy – face on mars ep” and “menu|exit – profiles ep”. be
sure to come over, in case you’re around berlin on easter. more
detailed info and the flyer can be found here.
next bubble.beat.sunday is starting on 08.04.2001 at 22h at filesharing, raumerstrasse 40 in berlin. confirmed players so far are menu:exit and dalezy.

micro_superstarz 2000 – where i contributed as synth ethic (elven eleven intro) – is finally released and has succesfully been de:bugged.
thumbs up for us, we made it to the cd of the month. thanks to
micromusic and domizil records to let it happen. then, .net is out on wide area network records.
25-1‘s going to happen on 12.12.2000 at filesharing, raumerstr. 40, berlin. playing live: dalezy and menu:exit.
next up: playing live at roadtv support party on 28.10.2000 at filesharing, raumerstr. 40 in berlin. other people on the setlist: menu:exit and kris mental.
“miniaturkrakenexodus” is out, it’s my null.profil debut-release.
also, nullprofil.net is up!
there’s nothing in there at this very moment, but it’ll be filled
with infos and soundbits as soon as i feel like building a shape around
