The Southeast of Europe and further down southeast is the birthplace of early high developed human cultures.
open your hearts for the ones that had to flee from wars and dictatorships and who will color the pale faces of middle european citizens in the near future…
As a Violinplayer, Alex Stolze combines string-based-textures with a beat-and-noise production to write his songs and tracks. This gives him the attitude of a caveman in a high-tech environment. Before Alex started to work solo, the producer, violinist and singer was a centerpiece of the bands bodi bill, unmap and dictaphone. He toured most big cities in Europe as well as spending time in the art- and theatre-scenes of New York, Montreal and Zurich. He co-founded Krakatau Records, a label for experimental technosound from Berlin, Alex‘ birthplace and hometown until today. His studio though is located in the middle of nowhere, close to the Polish-German border, where he finds the right tension to create his unique music. His first Solo EP will be released on SEPTEMBER 9th 2016 on his own label Nonostar Records, distributed in UK/GER/F/NL/CH/A/BE followed by an album in early 2017.

„what“ is the third album of Bodi Bill in 5 years and is the last until today… i wrote and dedicated the last song on the album „friends“ to Fabian and Anton, and we always played the song at the end of the show…i hope, that we will continue one day..
here is a video at melt festival 2011
in 2012 bodi bill started to pause…
Bodi Bill are visitors from different times, from before or after, nevermind. They share the responsibilty they’ve been given: We have our five or six years. We have knowledge we can make use of. And we have an idea. Or two. We have the means, but even more so: We have a reason. We opted for a context to act from, and for motives as well. And for this moment. This is our contribution to an ongoing discussion. In our own words. As an immediate part of it.
That said, discontent is more than the ever-famous opportunity. Discontent with yourself, with the circumstances. Discovering the value of permanent exchange. Making use of the possibilities, knowing what is up to you to do. For the time being, let this be the result of a necessity. And a promise to take part, and to face up to it again and again. Next Time.
