Here’s the original song:
Louis Zachert, also known as Metroland’s Passenger L, passed away in his sleep last August. We have known Louis Zachert for many years, especially since he was so close with our buddies Sven and Andy from Metroland and Ionic Vision fame.
Louis Zachert’s musical career spans many years, including a solo album “Vie!” (1992) under his own name, a lot of sound engineering work on Ionic Vision releases (“The End”, “Sweet Isolation”, “Complete Isolation”) and albums under the Cycloon name together with Axel Kleintjes (“Plasma Fusion”, “Head|Over|Now”, “Zeitseize “, …) and so on. Many of these releases are now impossible to find and have gotten a second life on eBay reaching incredibly high prices. Via his UnderTheRoof – Audio Mastering studio Louis Zachert kept himself very busy working with other artists like David Rey, Inertia, Digital Factor, Leo Nocta, Ortta, Bye Bye Leader, Amaury, Philine, Jean Delouvroy, Buenas Ondas, No Sunglasses, Darkmen, Teradélie and so on.
