"There Is Something", found for the first time on the album "In London" from 2007,
appears in a completely new sound. Fans of synth pop of the late 80s of the last
Century get their money's worth.
As a forerunner of the upcoming new album, the Split Mirrors release their single "Out of Space" on October 29th, 2021.
Fans should already know the song from the album "In London". Now it appears in a completely new synth-pop version.
Last year while camping at the Baltic Sea Stephen met "Hippie Jens", a mobile healer who has never used a computer and lives without smartphone and internet. His zest for life, lightness and gratitude towards everything impressed Stephen very much, Jens said to Stephen: "You are on a good path, you absolutely have to read Siddhartha and the Steppenwolf by Hesse". The encounter moved Stephen to undergo a small self-experiment. For the complete album phase of Tipi im Wald he exchanged internet and television for Hesse and producing. What did he want to achieve with it? Stephen had long felt the need for a new approach to writing lyrics and hoped to find a new source of inspiration. The attempt worked out and Tipi im Wald practically wrote itself. Song concepts, lyrics and melodies bubbled up without end and the Tipi im Wald demos provided very positive feedback in Stephen's environment. Finally the two Reggae veterans Dr. Ring Ding and Mellow Mark could be won as feature guests for this project. In total, 10 tunes were created with authentic lyrics drawing from Stephens own life experience and wrapped in humorous concious styles. German premium Roots Reggae in the unmistakable Stephen Keise timbre. Tipi im Wald reminds us how important it is to find your own formula and maybe to BE a bit more like "Hippie Jens". More...

Finally the Split Mirrors are back with a new, previously unpublished song. "Without Your Love" will be released on June 19th 2020. As usual sparkling in the traditional golden eighties Italo-Disco sound. Additionally, there is a timeless acoustic version that shows a so far unfamiliar angle of the band.
`RASAN WAYO ́ in the HAUSA language of West Africa simply means `LOSS OF MIND OR WISDOM ́. A lady suddenly loses her mind, breaks up from her long time partner and all because of a richer man! That`s what the song is basically about. .......................
Split Mirrors artistically opened a new door and dived into a new musical adventure. After many productive years, in which they exclusively composed their own songs, Henry Flex and Achim Jaspert now enthusiastically launched another heart project, to remix some of their favorite songs from the 80s. The result is an album with remixed hits of friends, such as the Camouflage, Fancy or Bad Boys Blue and as well as some of their own songs. So on this album you can find classics like "Self Control" or "The Great Commandment" in the familiar Italo disco / discofox sound of the Split Mirrors. It's time for action, baby!
Colah Colah and Stephen Keise team up to steam up there catchy anthem "Networking". Two artists, from two countrys (Jamaica/Germany), one message: Upliftment through networking. The "Crucial Times" riddim by Lion Riddims sets the authentic vibe for this epic Reggae/HipHop combination.
Das Ambient-Projekt Skychilla präsentiert seine erste EP „Skychilla“.
Mit einer Mischung aus akustischen und synthetischen Instrumenten träumt man sich durch den Himmel der sphärischen Klangwelten. Keine geringeren als Achim Jaspert und Henry Flex von den Split Mirrors zeichnen sich verantwortlich für diese musikalische Reise.
In Zeiten von teurem Vegan Hype und einer pseudo „Zurück zur Natur“ Bewegung in Medien und Supermärkten, richten Stephen Keise und der international bekannte Reggae Artist Jahcoustix mit „Wisdom Keepers“ unsere Gehörgänge auf die Zo'é, einen kleinen isolierten Stamm im Amazonas, der komplett im Einklang mit der Natur lebt. „Wisdom Keepers“ ist eine Hommage an diese Wächter der Weisheit, diese Genies im Bereich der Kräuterheilkunde, die keine Ressourcen verschwenden und die Erde als einen Teil von sich selbst wahrnehmen. „Wisdom Keepers“ errinnert uns an unsere Verantwortung gegenüber Mutter Erde, die nichts mit einem Hype zu tun hat sondern extentiell für diese wunderbare menschliche Erfahrung ist.
