80687 - Reaktor - Elektronische Maschine

Shameless Kraftwerk copyists who played at the 1997 Alfa Centauri festival,
EM are a trio who wear identical shirts, work in a studio called Klank, and
have a power station ("kraftwerk" in German) on the cover of their CD.
They sing in monotone voices and have titles like "Metal Klange" and "Tanzen
Mit Computer" - but having said all that, since Kraftwerk don't release an
album for five years at a time or more, there must be a huge demand for this
style, and it's inevitable that bands like EM will be well set up to satisfy
it. The band don't stick strictly to the strong analog sounds
preferred by their
mentors, incorporating more conventional drums and some twangy, highly
resonant effects. There are touches of early Depeche Mode (as on "Not
Anruf") as well as of Kraftwerk, and a lot less in the way of vocals;
however, "Reaktor" is bound to please any fans of the Dusseldorf mystery
men, and is well worth getting hold of.

40609 - Attack ! - Syndromeda

Syndromeda`s Album "Attack!" from 2006 is a work full of rythm,
hypnotic electronic sounds and fast paced sequences.Partly it reminds
to the 80s style but only to take these elements for a fresh sound
from today and give it a new frame with some finetuning of powerful
synthesizers.
An album just right to go with on the motorway in the night or to
celebrate an Elektroparty with a big lightshow.

71137 - Afterglow - Holroyd, Bob

When it comes to finding music that creates an emotional resonance for
the people on the dancefloor, Bob Holroyd is my 'go to' man. A
definite statement was made with his last offering ("Beachcombing") by
venturing (with a few key tracks) into territory normally reserved for
ambient luminaries.

For his latest album "Afterglow", Bob completes his transition into
the realm of pure ambience. There's not a beat in site; what
"Afterglow" misses in beats however, it more than makes up for in
incredible depth, subtlety, and vibrant emotional resonance.
This is music that navigates deep rivers, and the oh so human
condition of transitioning from loss to redemption. The result is a
richly nuanced melancholy musical treat that would (I believe) make
ambient pioneers Brian Eno and Harold Budd proud.

A cd like this is not something you can simply slap on, skip through
and listen to a song or two here and there. This is essentially one
long song broken down into chapters; uninterrupted listening is
essential, and it takes multiple plays before this diamond in the
rough really starts to shine.
Floating drone sounds, simple piano lines, nostalgic guitar riffs and
reverb drenched cello notes create an ethereal and enveloping perfume
that connects the listener to their emotions, releases tension and
acts as a soothing balm to the ears. Bob Holroyd and his studio
musicians make it all seem so easy...but there is true genius at work
here; and an acute understanding of the principle 'less is more'.
It's not often these days that you get to listen to music that is as
much defined by the space between the notes as by the notes
themselves. There's so much room to breath and just be in these
compositions that it literally calls out to the listener to be an
active participant in the dialogue that is unfolding.
Make no mistake about it; this cd is quite a drastic and daring
departure from the typical ambient world electronica, even for a
producer who is continually proving his willingness to try the
unexpected. And it has a definite melancholic mood that may not be to
everyone's tastes. But for those who believe that good music justifies
investing oneself in the experience, this release is definitely for you.

Relax, take your shoes off, kick back, and get ready to take a trip to
moonlit clouds under the most incredible star filled sky you have ever
seen. "Afterglow" is the musical equivalent to a constellation shaped
like a string of pearls hanging from the bosom of the milky way; it
will guide you through the darkest of nights and whisk you back to the
mists of dawn with each and every listen...

26001-Mind trips - Syndromeda

Syndromeda`s Debut Album "Mind TRIPS" from 1997 shows from a very
start the typical signature of this Belgian musician, who is a master
of warm soundpads, melodic sequences and partly psychedelic
synthesizersounds. The man behind Syndromeda, Danny Budts, acts like
an art painter who brings landscapes from inner soul outside. Budts
does paint with electronic music to do so.

GR-047 - M'ocean - Michael Stearns

How not let ourselves being enthralled by so much luminescence which
glitters around rhythms lost in musical envelopes decorated by
thousand of tones with brightness of diamonds? It's been a while since
I want to talk to you about "M'Ocean", but each time I was intimidated
at the idea of approaching this chronicle. I wonder how to find the
words and how to formulate my sentences to describe aptly all the
beauty which hides behind every note of this Michael Stearns'
extremely poetical work. "M'Ocean" is a symphony of luminosities and
iridescent tones which irradiate on passive rhythms and oceanic
ambiences of which the eddies are weaving enchanting seraphic
structures. It's a wonderful album soaked with an abyssal magnetism in
the multiple crystal clear tones which glitter as pearls of water on
the blades of fire from a burning sun, creating a superb mixture of
oniric moods and paradisiacal rhythms.
A first surge of bottom comes to snatch us and "Sirens" entails us in
the abyssal ravines of "M'Ocean". The intro is nuanced between its
lyrical layers and others darker which undulate in the swirls to
crystalline reflections while the descent is striking of a morbid
reality as a drowning in the lands of Poseidon. And there, the nymphs
of the bluish depths let hear their singings of astral mermaids with
tones which sparkle as prismatic songs in the Eden of immortal
exhilaration. And as on the great majority of the structures filled by
glimmering musical mirrors, the morphic envelope of "Sirens" sings to
us the infinity between the light of the darkness and the blackness of
its bites to vanish in the abyss, like being sucked up by the
nothingness. With its lines of synth waltzing in indecision, "Marriage
Chords" caresses delicately our senses. Soft sleep-inducing impetuses,
floating as astral jellyfishes on a twinkling bed of starfishes, weave
a lakeside reverie which draws its s trength from the slow undulations
of strata from which the iridescent outlines run aground on a cosmic
bank. These waves which withdraw from sands are slightly bubbling and
implode of their fine whitish particles in a splendid soporific
whirlwind, awakening the thoughts of the majestic title-track which
melts in our ears with all the harmonic presence of "M'Ocean". Guitar
riffs and delicate percussions lift this poetic rhythm which sparkles
of its thousand musical prisms, tickling fine passive undulations
which let themselves carried away by delicate waves of surface. And
"M' Ocean" to swirl lasciviously around a bass line with elongated
silent notes, plunging into sea beds and scattering the debris of a
submarine fauna which sings of its million prismatic particles.
"Lightplay" deepens, with all the dramatic intensity, the melodious
portion of "Sirens" second half. It's an extremely poignant and
powerful title where mermaids sing, whistle and chant in a twinkling
torrent of synth l ayers in a heavy moving crescendo. If the first
part is bursting out of emotion, the second one entails us towards a
more melodic stream where shine thousands of crystalline tones, as sea
bees around the hive of Poseidon. Sweet silvery ringings pierce the
aquatic dunes, guiding "Vicki's Dance" towards voices of Shamans which
cast the spell for the dance of shady waters. The rhythm becomes dense
and espouses a heavy rotatory movement which displays its sequences as
rhythmic lappings around an ephemeral spiral. In spite of the
movement's power, "Vicki's Dance" preserves all of "M'Ocean" oniric
cachet with a finale as much poetic as the poems of the marine nymphs.
With all its sequences which crisscross and swirl in a stunning
immortal dance, "Fireflies' Delight" decorates "M'Ocean" of an
apotheosis finale. The intro floats of its glittery veils, awakening
one by one some sequences which swirl around a sober and dramatic line
of bass. The fireflies are flitting and spinning with the gr ace of
their suppleness, creating a rangy swirling wave which widens its
exhilaration in a delicate musical tumult where Caribbean percussions
and passive swiftness preserve all the harmonic ease of a finale which
lets predict that life comes from oceanic tears. "Walking Song", a
short reprise of an Igor Stravinsky's title, ends a powerful opus of
which your ears will ask for more, again and again, for years to come.
Innovating with a first hybrid synth (Oberheim OB8) which catches and
restores all the depth and the nuances of an art divinely lyrical,
Michael Stearns pushes away the limits of the astral musical poetry
with an album powerfully poetical that has words only its immense
magnificence. "M'Ocean" is a work apart where no comparison holds. On
the contrary, it's the album which influenced a whole musicians'
generation and of which these influences can be hear a lot on almost
everywhere in the chessboard of the contemporary EM. This remastered
edition, released by Groove back in 2000, reflects finally all the
depth of this grand musical work which had shaken a handful of
initiated during its first version in 1983 under the title of Light
Play. It's an inescapable work. A classic of ambient and melodic EM
and if you don't still have it, say to yourselves that you are
definitely missing something!
