Hi All

I am proud to annoounce the first release on Groove 

Hoshiko Yamane‘s music flutters like a young butterfly, perhaps one
just born. The Japanese violinist is based in Berlin, and she’s a
current member of Tangerine Dream. On her third solo album, Threads,
her violin sings with the positivity of direct, youthful sunlight.
Radiant and energetic, but well-paced and sensitive of its place, her
violin is blown as if on the lightest of spring winds; an unraveling
series of dawn-lit notes which take flight as soon as the sun rises.

Yamane’s music is like a thread itself, often finding a phrase or a
particular melody to hold onto and then developing it into a
well-bodied piece; a single thread blossoming into something tangible
and whole. And her music enjoys a full, well-lived life. Threads is
absent of fat, but it isn’t skeletal. The music is lean without
entering the field of bare-boned minimalism. Saying that, her melodies
are paper-thin, as delicate as the faint creeping of first light.

Yamane’s violins are united together, and they play with an unmatched
elegance. When a degree of uncertainty enters the picture, such as on
“Tangled”, the violin, although not quite resolving, is still able to
escape the thorns without too much in the way of injury. Sure, a
little scrape here, a little cut there, but it’s nothing that time won’t heal.

If life is a journey (and it does appear to be), our threads make up
its seasons. With so many ups and downs, weaving zig-zags and
nauseating inverts, our personal lines – our personal threads – will
become entangled at one point or another. Yamane’s response is to
disengage calmly, to pick off the plastic which clings to and
ultimately hurts the violin’s heart, and throw it away for good. Her
violin will pick up the pieces slowly, clean any wounds which need to
be cleansed, and leave the situation behind, not littered with
negativity or a scattering of distress or heartache, but with
increased wisdom, thankfulness, and gratitude. The music’s heart was
always benevolent, but it changes still further to encompass an even
greater degree of kindness. Everything about the music is tidy. In
this respect, Yamane’s music is a form of reincarnation; a butterfly
loosening the shell of her cocoon.

Her primary melodies sit on top of layered violins, creating fruitful
harmonies and tasteful, poetic sections, but other parts soar along
with them, flying in tandem, as a flock. “The Genial Sunshine” is
soothing, meditative in its exhalations, repeating (waiting) and
repeating (waiting) and repeating (waiting) until its golden, glorious
time arrives. It’s the wait for sunshine, the wait for new life, the
wait for a new opportunity, and when it releases, it’s able to flutter
upwards, beaming as it goes, realizing its full potential, of what it
was born to do. You’ll know when that time comes. Please treasure it.

Dancing, leaping, Threads is a sprinkling of pure joy, a dawning for
the heart after the black depths of night and its false finality. She
creates music of prime beauty and warmth, of life and of hope; a
ballet in mid-air, and a heart whose composition sings of perennial
love. We should protect it. Drink it in, and be happy. (James Catchpole)

This is her 3rd release but the first CD release on Groove.
The CD should be available within 2 weeks!!

NEW In stock the really BRILLIANT!!!


Recorded at the E-day festival, this consists of two long tracks. The
almost hour long title track slowly builds up a polyrhythmic jigsaw of
sequencer patterns, like a sculptor hunting for the form buried in a
slab of marble. Or something. The band were given a pretty free hand
as to timing so the music has time to breathe and develop. On the day,
the set was even longer but a section that was a little sparse due to
technical difficulties has been compressed. Despite the time warping
it's all here!

The coda to this, Convoi Exceptionel (a bonus track to try to thwart
the pirates. It won't work, of course) took place as the encore. With
the energy still high from the main set, there's no let up and it's
straight into modular-fuelled sequencer heaven again. But just in case
that sounds a bit one-dimension, don't worry. The ever shifting
sequencers serve as a backdrop for some of the most intense playing
seen at an airsculpture concert. Vast phasing pads, wailing leads,
it's all here. What a disc!! Pure delight!

And also new and for a special price!!

E-Scape 2018 Compilation a Great release of unique songs!

E-Scape 2018 is a collection of exclusive studio and unreleased live
tracks from artists performing at the 2018 UK E-Scape Festival. The
music is a varied collection of traditional electronic music of the
spacey, sequencer style and it all hangs together nicely as a cohesive
electronic music album.

Code Indigo open proceedings with the moody 12 minute epic Redemption,
a forgotton unreleased gem from 2002. Next up is Ron Boots with the
melancholy but upbeat Cries in the Mist and things liven up with the
foot stomping, guitar driven Deep Dream from FD Project.

VoLt present another gem with the excellent and traditional 80’s style
em Circadian Cycle, before we then go into experimental space music
mode with the exploratory Orcadian Voyager Dives Again by Concept
Devices. Industrial Sunset-Leaving Town by Gazz Collins picks things
up again weaving its seductive rhythmic spell. We then move into the
longest track on the album, a great slice of electronica/rock, Thunder
Road by Ron Boots.

The album closes with Krystal Halls Highway, a tribute to the late
Klaus Hoffmann-Hoock, performed by Code Indigo and featuring Klaus.
The track is a reworking of a previously unreleased David Wright/Klaus
Hoffmann-Hoock track Krystal Halls. E-Scape 2018 is sure to appeal to
fans of traditional sequencer styled, spacey electronic music.

And new in the catalog are Moonbooter - EVIL 18DE (cd) and Uwe Reckzeh

86412 Zanov - Open Worlds Live at Synthfest 2017

This audio-visual release –limited to 100 numbered and autographed
copies- documents Pierre Salkazanov’s performance at Nante’s Synthfest
2017 which was accompanied by beautiful cyberworld graphics as backdrop.
The 60-minute disc contains tracks from the studio album “Open Worlds”
mingled with two new themes. Characteristic Zanov sound design is all
over the place as well as a distinct futuristic, psychedelic approach.
Zanov’s synthetic world of sounds is one of robotics and gloominess, a
complex and disorientating aural otherworld of pure electronics
featuring deranged harmonies of sequences and textures with only few
glimpses of melody.
As I’ve said previously about his studio album, both Pierre’s style
and approach remain unique with nothing quite like it out there.

42019 Vanderson - Sequenced Thoughts

The Berlin School style EM will lose a great collaborator with the
breakout of Vanderson towards the territories of Electronic Dance
Music. The Polish synthesist has been tergiversating for at least four
years regarding his musical orientation, reaffirming his desire to
continue in the footsteps of his album Abyss and his latest album
Beyond Time Structure, making of “Sequenced Thoughts” his testament to
the Berlin School. And he doesn't do it alone! Accompanied by Lambert
Ringlage on sequencer, he signs one of his best albums where solos
scroll like tails of multicolored kites in azure sky and where the
music is a little masterpiece and an authentic overview of the
evolution of the genre since the 70's. Benefiting from a production
and a mixing without spots which fill us the ears at satiety, this
last opus of Vanderson consists of 4 very beautiful parts which subdue
and astonish with this fascinating complicity between simplicity and
compl e xity.
The blurry introduction of "Sequenced Thoughts Part 1" fills our ears
with tones that only EM can put into images. Are they some kind of
water lapping? Felted explosions? Whispers of a cave's walls? It
doesn't matter! There is of everything here for a fertile imagination.
A synth launches harmonies in the form of solos that sneak like a
sonic snake over this stave of ambient noises. A sequencer activates
its keys after the door of 3 minutes. Waddling vigorously, it
structures a rhythm in stereo which is harpooned by a line of bass
sequences and its contrasting oscillations. Jingles of percussion? Why
not! And of course, percussions. All these elements combine for an
ear-catching rhythm where whistle no less catchy harmonies from a
synth in mode creativity. The lines of harmonies succeed each other
with nuances in their aerial pirouettes while behind this scenery,
layers of gas very TD add to a soundscape in constant movement. The
sequences bring nuances to this structure o f rhythm which hiccoughs
now of spasms, whereas the atmospheres add effects which oversize an
already very rich musical scenography. Even the synth adds nuanced
touches in its drifting harmonies as fictional elements squeak in a
motley sky unique to the tonal creativity of EM. Gradually, the
spasmodic restructuring of "Sequenced Thoughts Part 1" arrives at this
ambiospheric stage so dear to this model in the secrets of its 10th
minute. A little respite, not even meditative, which invigorates a
structure already near its climax with a thick layer of sonic
additives where solos guide the pace with a presence as harmonic as
rhythmic. Some big Berlin School from Spheric here!
"Sequenced Thoughts Part 2" follows the same parameters with a
spheroidal rhythmic structure that goes back and forth like the pace
of a cosmic cha-cha whose uncertain steps are conducive to a synth and
its thousand sonic artifices. The rhythm is always in evolutionary
mode with a proactive sequencer which inse rts its legion of hopping
and dancing keys in a constraint-free structure, thus allowing the
synth to modify the character of its songs and solos. If the approach
is more ethereal than in "Sequenced Thoughts Part 1", the explosion
point, which is around the 13 minutes, has nothing to envy to the
first part of this album. A loud raucous roar leads our ears to
"Sequenced Thoughts Part 3". The added layers deepen a dark approach
which flirts with the chthonian ambiances so dear to the retro Berlin
School. A pool of tones and of elements of ambience awaits our ears a
few 140 seconds later, giving the start to a dizzying structure and of
which the influences of Chris Franke's sequencing style can not be
dissociated from a breathtaking pattern of sequences which blows my
mind. The first part of "Sequenced Thoughts Part 3" exceeds my
expectations. In fact, it's one of the most beautiful movements that
Lambert and Vanderson, together or separately, have built to date. The
synths are more d i screet here, leaving all the nobility to these
repetitive Paddle Ball strikes which end a race of sequences in some
gas and felted percussion effects. We are around the 11th minute and a
refueling point of ambiances is needed before the 3rd party goes into
this EDM approach in this style of Vanderson or even Klaus Schulze.
Another great track! Another great track! It must take something very
strong to succeed it, and "Sequenced Thoughts Part 4" does the work.
Born from waters, the music rises with a little something that
questions our memories. That's it! The fog layers are very Klaus
Schulze. The effects and the airs from the synths which follow are
just as much. Exceeding 3 minutes, these atmospheres charm with songs
of astral whales trapped in layers of fog saturated of drizzle. And a
nice sequence of ambient rhythm emerges after these 3 minutes.
Vanderson and Lambert go there for a Schulze painting to end the final
visions of the Polish synthesist with regard to the Berlin Scho o l.
Very mesmerizing, the movement is total Schulze with a very Moondawn
sequencer which climbs its 10 minutes through layers full of whispers
and of delicate harmonic flutes. The added percussion gives velocity
which excites our senses and the moods. It's in a magical electronic
decor that this last part of “Sequenced Thoughts” evolves. And,
regular like a clock, the pace takes a new step with a little more
power and speed while the moods follow the pace without wandering.
Between Moondawn and In Blue, for the more contemporary aspect,
"Sequenced Thoughts Part 4" makes us regret Vanderson's decision to
focus on EDM from now on.
On 4 parts well distributed over its 73 minutes, “Sequenced Thoughts”
is a bombshell of emotions and of reminiscences on the art of the
Berlin School and its evolutions through the ages. This is a tour de
force that Vanderson and Lambert Ringlage offer to our ears. And
hopefully this tandem will come back once in a while to give us such
other beautiful em otions. If not, it's the heart a little sad and
already nostalgic that I tell you that this “Sequenced Thoughts” is
delicious, dreamlike and highly inspired from point A to point Z. Hat
to both of you guys for this album which should defy time!
