Hi All

Patrick Kosmos - Monument live 1988 (GR-249)
release date March 31st 2018.
http://www.groove.nl/index3.html

Patrick Kosmos (aka Patrick Wille De Wael) passed away on February 2
2015, only 55 years old. A "Cosmic Courier" was lost, but his musical
Legacy lives on!

Patrick's music was always an inspiration for me, and from the day I
met him at the first Klemdag he became also a inspirator for what I am
now . He was in the late 80's and early 90's one of the most driving
forces behind the Belgium EM scene.
With his "De Wending" movement (and all who worked on this) they
showed many the way what you could do if you would put your mind to
something. And was a link between The Dutch and Belgium EM scene.

And although along the way he was lost for our scene as musician and
inspirator his legacy stayed. His work endured!
And then in 2015 on the 2nd of Febuary Patrick left this mortal world.

By the end of 2017 Philip Wille De Wael, the Brother of Patrick got in
contact with me and after a great meeting with him and his lovely
partner we decided to get that great musical legacy of Patrick under
people again. I am proud to announce the first release of his vast
musical legacy.

Patrick Kosmos - Monument live 1988 the first release of this cooperation.
Stunning music with Patrick in top form, detailed, full of passion,
rich in sound. 30 years old but a fresh as they day it was made.
A unique Monument.
The start of the return of the "Cosmic Courier" !!

31140 Nies, Harald - Axial

Harald Nies is one of the rare artists in the field of electronic rock
music who succeeds to combine catchy melodic themes in short
structures. After a break of 2 years, the German synthesist and
guitarist makes a strong comeback with a powerful album which mixes
marvelously the cosmic style to big rock while touching the important
signature of MellowJet Records label, a heavy animated and danseable
music. “Axial” proposes a continuous musical mosaic of 67 minutes
where the rock, the blues and the disco styles live without skinning
the ears of those who prefer a style to another one.
"Inorganic" begins this album with a slightly lively circular
structure. We stamp of the foot and we roll delicately of the neck in
a sound decoration rich in its layers of synths soaked with fluty
melodies and with its sonic elements which go and come such as lights
of gyrating sounds. Set apart its lively tempos, "Axial" soaks in a
multitude of synth layers . There is influx on "Inorganic", among
which orchestral layers and mists of the Mellotron years. The
electronic effects are thought well with lines of chirpings which go
and come in forms of stroboscopic strands, being bound at times to a
jerky structure. The tempo re orientates its fluidity in middle-route
with rather melodic spasmodic elements which swirl in a heavy mass of
orchestral mist. A good opening which brings us to "Islands Nights"
which oscillates between a more rock kind, because of its heaviness,
and of dance, because of its lightness in its rotating spirals. The
music and its momentum hooks a little pleasure on my ears. The
orchestral layers fall like disrupted silhouettes while others fly
with grace and velocity in a very musical environment. Even the tiny
voice sounds good in this electronic deco soaked of good synth solos
and which brings us back in the Disco time and these plated balls of
glitter and mirrors. The dusts of its finale are flowing towards the
monst r ous "Roadshop". The rhythm is of lead with good electronic
percussions which hammer the dynamism under a carousel of synth solos,
some of organic tones and others with more vintage tones. The oasis of
sounds which surrounds this very creative electronic rock at the level
of its sequences, at the level of its stroboscopic effects and at the
level of the harmonies of a synth which never lacks imagination, in
particular at the level of solos, is simply breathtaking. The guitar
rages and takes away the 2nd part which becomes pure rock essence. And
while we believe that the track is ending, a vein of sequences escapes
and structures a very good phase of electronic rock that we would want endless.
With its swarm of sequences which flutters on the same spot, "Escape
from Earth" is a passage of ambient and motionless elements.
Flourishing on a dense cloud of slightly wave-like mist, the rhythm
escapes with this meshing of percussions and sequences which bang and
skip without really loo king for a rhythmic dynamic. The harmonies are
sculpted between the big tears of a synth from where escape fluty
strands as well as chords which try to imprint a musical itch between
our ears. It's working rather well I may add! "View from The Hill"
couples to the finale with these synth layers always rich in effects
of lunar violins to propose a slow rhythm which is lasciviously
hammered by heavy percussions. A splendid oriental melody strolls in
this décor packed of effects of voices, let's say murmurs, and dusts
of stars which add a real dimension of cosmic blues to the music. The
percussions are heavy and handled well such as a drummer of Rock and
Blues music and they drive the music in cosmic interludes and to
attract them again in this beautiful cosmic slow dance where always
strolls this wonderful oriental melody. This has to be the highlight
of “Axial”. "Let's Jam" follows with a rhythm of dance. Lively and
heavy with its structure of bass sequences which steals the show to
the percussions, this rhythm of dance remains very electronic with
good synth solos which are more harmonious than in a kind of free
style. "Dark Fever" is a big furious electronic rock. Percussions and
a fluid bass line bring the rhythm towards a soaring heavy rock. The
synth drops cosmic melodies while weaving other melodic themes in mode
staccato which resist to the riffs of a guitar which is also starving
for good solos. This is another catchy and lively electronic rock! The
title-track ends this blistering album with a more meditative approach
which is always rich in synth elements. At every levels, “Axial” is a
pretty strong comeback album from Harald Nies who presents us here his
most beautiful, the most constant album of his career. Dynamite and as
it's writing in the press info, listen and enjoy.
