I didn’t expect a repress of “Irradiance” after it was published in November 2017. It was a personal project and something I needed to express . Maybe that’s what people felt when listening to it…. So today I’m thankful that the album is appearing again (this time on white vinyl). Thanks for all who supported it already!
My new EP “Astral Plane” contains 3 superficially contrasting tracks that combine ambient sounds with hypnotic beats in different ways. Also included is a video trailer by Jennifer Trees, who created the visuals for Wolfgang Voigt’s Gas project. The record is now available!
I recently had a chat with Angel Bali, the result of which can now be read in the American “Magnetic Magazine”. There is also a podcast that I made for this occasion.
Just arrived back home from an amazing weekend Lviv (Ukraine). Svarog and me were invited from Textura to celebrate a label showcase. After landing in Lviv I went out with the guys to see a bit of the historic monuments of the city. During the weekend I got in touch with nice people, had some interesting chats about the city…
“Luminophor” breathes the air of my last year’s “Irradiance” album, but adds some innovations to the existing concept and includes an enchanting remix by label colleague Svarog.
With Polar Inertia, Dino Sabatini, CHPTR and Evigt Mörker I have a conscientious selection of producers for a remix vinyl EP of my first album “Irradiance”. The record is now ready to be sent out.
Decennium is a vinyl trilogy that is in the context of our 10 year label anniversary. the third and last part consists of pieces by Giorgio Gigli, Deepbass, Periskop and me
I was full of impressions when i arrived back home from a tour in Asia last autumn. Some days after i captured the memories of the night i performed at vurt. (Hapjeong – Dong, 마포구 합정동 414-20 Seoul, Korea) in my studio. Thanks to Pano and the whole crew at vurt. for making this video! Hope to see you guys soon again!”vurt.” will be released on Affin’s “Decennium 1.3” vinyl in March 2018.
“17 years are between the first big exclamation point of Joachim Spieth his debut album Vanishing Point and the Irradiance LP from last year. Spieth links forgotten narrative strands to a satisfying conclusion for the time being only to serve the next cliffhanger.
Irridance is also special because the 8 tracks were the first ever on Spieth’s label Affin Ltd. and then, after 6 years of strong EPs, pull something like a first interim conclusion…”
Irradiance is Joachim Spieth’s first full length album, to be released on his own imprint Affin. It reflects a cycle of realignment in a carefully realized emotional journey. A constant motion through the layers of the tracks shape the sonic landscape, while evolving atmospheres provide a cohesive feel with shimmers of optimism…
…feeling privileged that i had the opportunity to get in touch with so many nice people and the warm welcome in every city! Thanks to the crews of Lantern Beijing, Arkham Shanghai and vurt. Seoul! It was a pleasure to meet you all and i hope to be back soon! For the next trip i just wish to have more time to take some photos.
teaming-up with RVO and Deepbass for the 2nd Affinity vinyl EP
my 2nd vinyl in 2016. Deep, detailed and spherical techno
After a long pause for thought and production, my new EP finds its way to the public. I felt the change that should be. Leaving the old behind, going new ways …ultimately it feels good. And it seems to be the beginning of a new section.
…the moment when someone says to you, “It is the first time that I listen to such music, you opened a world to me tonight” … and when you feel that the other person really feels it and means it the same way. It was a really impressive week that I will not forget! Many thanks to everyone who works at Toy Toy and Vault and accompanied me…

new installment on Affin with remixes from Rolando and RVO – closing a chapter
“In over 15 years of producing and releasing Techno, Joachim Spieth has had to move and adapt to the constantly changing environment in the contemporary electronic music world. He has rode the bull that is the ever-changing evolvement of record distribution with both his own records and those of artists he represents through Affin. He has also seen the rise of the Internet and social media and is able to reflect on this in ways that are both positive and negative for present day and up-and-coming music producers…”
new times, new phases. Aidan vinyl with remixes from Samuel L Session and Arnaud Le Texier
After his acclaimed Sensual EP & some remixes label host Joachim Spieth continues with his passion for chordish techno.The A-side starts with a powerful and energetic remix delivered by G-Man aka Gez Varley, well-known as former member of the legendary Warp-act LFO (besides his successful solo work).

…In the same time i started recording my first musical ideas on tapes so i decided to send a demo cassette to Delirium, in hope they would release it or at least give me some feedback. And i was lucky, they listened my tape and called me. 1 year later i got another call from the shop, they liked me last demo and would like to release it on NTA (former label of Kompakt)…
“The Orb virtually invented the electronic genre known as ambient house, resurrecting slower, more soulful rhythms and providing a soundtrack for early morning ravers once the club closed their doors. A band that hit number one in the UK with their highly influential album U.F.Orb, they joined Back to Mine in 2003 to share with us all another example of their brilliance. This mix ranges in style from the sublime to the bizarre, emphasising something The Orb have always had – a healthy sense of humour…”
