The music has the sound and the production of the big names, at times
you think you are listening to a new Vangelis album! Beautiful!
Release date: May 2019


GR-272 - Frank Doritkke - NIKO (cd)
The first Frank Dorittke album, a concept album. Brilliant!

== There it is, my first concept album ... "NIKO".
No typical F.D.Project album ... "A musical Journey" with complete
new sounds and sound designs in it.
10 Songs merged into one musical story.

But what is NIKO ?
NIKO is what you make of it.
For me it is a 55 minutes dream fulle of hope, happiness ... but also of fear and sadness.
A soundtrack for the mind ... without a movie.
10 Songs ... 10 Titles ... Let's start your dream.

Steve Roach - Atmosphere for Dreaming (digipak) (cd)
Steve Roach - Heliosphere (digipak) (cd)
2 Great releases that will be loved by many as among the best
Roach releases since years.

Tangerine Dream - Official Bootleg Series 3 (digipak) (4-cd)
The third in a series of TD 'official bootlegs'.

This volume features recordings made at the Ford Auditorium in
Detroit, USA in March 1977 and at the Regent Theatre, Sydney,
Australia in February 1982 and contains over four hours of music ..

The concert in Detroit has gone down in Tangerine Dream history as a
legendary event. The music performed by Edgar Froese, Christopher
Franke and Peter Baumann featured Froese’s extensive use of electric
guitar in a truly blistering set. The concert at the Regent Theatre in
Sydney is from the next stage of Tangerine Dream’s career, featuring a
line-up of Edgar Froese, Christopher Franke and Johannes Schmoelling
and provides another excellent example of the excellence of Tangerine
Dream on stage.

This official 4CD clamshell boxed set has been remastered from the
best available sources and includes an illustrated booklet with an essay.

Thanks for your time!

21285 Roach, Steve - Heliosphere

Composed in collaboration with Radiant Mind, HELIOSPHERE is another
magical work by Steve Roach. Presented in 8 acts for a total of 66
minutes, the music seems destined for another meditation exercise so
much that it follows the bends of abandonment, absorption and
awakening phases. The masses of wind, drones and synth lines with
tonal variations prioritize an envelope where lyricism prevails over
the mutism or the apathy of a knot of static lines. The result is a
really nice relaxing music worthy of the best opuses from the American
musician. And I always ask myself this question; how can Steve Roach
be so good year after year?
A distant wind joins our ears in the opening "Sphere 1". Following
some phantom inclination, this rush of warm winds gently boils in a
fiery sky where our ears are victims of an auditory mirage with these
threads of missing voices humming an extinguished chant. Hollow winds
complete this symphony for Aeolus, while waving synth lines and sound
stars sing some seraphic verses. These elements form a fascinating
melody of just two seconds that recurs tirelessly between those
multilayers and their slow mass movements that take a darker tangent
with the arrival of the drones in "Sphere 2". These drones are the
equivalent of chants that the natural channels of ventilation carve
between the stalagmites of a cave. A slight mutation in the tones
gives a duller sonic image, a more austere one to "Sphere 3", while
that "Sphere 4" seems to gets out of the dark caverns with an
appearance that flirts with the seraphic side of aerial waves from
Steve Roach's universe to reach a greater musicality with "Sphere 5"
which casts an aura of even more palpable emotionality in HELIOSPHERE.
The dark breezes resound again in "Sphere 6" which activates the first
line of rhythm in this collaboration of Steve Roach & Radiant Mind. A
circular movement intrigues our hearing a little after the 8th minute.
The sequenced ri t ornello gets lost in the abyss before returning to
charm the rattling that amplifies their presence with continual felted
beats in "Sphere 7". This phase of rhythm articulated in creativity is
like a lunar trance that hops like a stubborn one-legged who is
frantic and with a good line of powder in the nostrils. Each knock
reflects an echo that draws a long line of static rhythm that lives
over 6 minutes before cavernous breaths mute down the excitement of
HELIOSPHERE in a veil of serene ambiences and awakenings of "Sphere 8".
Yes! Still I'm wondering how can Steve Roach be so good year after year?

 gr-251 Free System Projekt - Procyon

On this Free System Project album (originally released as a download
album in 2009 but now re-released as a CD by Dutch EM label Groove
Unlimited) Marcel plays an Access Virus A (synthesizer module) and a
Yamaha A3000 (hardware sampler) with Mellotron and Stringensemble
sets, Ruud the Alesis Fusion HD (a 88-key synthesizer workstation)
with Mellotron and Stringensemble sets, wow, 'a vintage keyboard
maniac's wet dream', perfect gear to produce the unsurpassed 74-77
Tangerine Dream sound that the duo embraces. As we can hear on their
many previous efforts, my favourite one is Okefenokee Dreams, recorded
live at a Tangerine Dream fans meeting in the USA, in 2001.

1. Procyon (27.55) : After a spacey intro with SF sounds and the usual
beep and bleeps a dreamy Mellotron flute and soaring synthesizer
strings join. Then majestic low sounding Mellotron violins, gradually
the music turns into more dynamic. In a wonderful way the Mellotrons
an d synthesizers of the two musicians blend, culminating in a very
lush and exciting electronic music atmosphere. Suddenly it's sequencer
time, around 15 minutes long, accompanied by first a high pitched
Mellotron flute and flashy synthesizer flights, and then sumptuous
Mellotron choirs, this is top notch electronic music, obviously
inspired by 74-77 Tangerine Dream but with an own touch. The final
part delivers fading sequencers and mellow Mellotron flutes and
synthesizer strings.

2. Procyon (14.20) : First scary sound effects, then pulsating
sequencers and the focus on synthesizer flights. Halfway deep sounding
sequencing and lush Mellotron choirs that colour the music in
compelling way, goose bumps! After an interlude with high a pitched
Mellotron flute this composition ends with strings and a fading
Mellotron violin sound.

3. And Then There Were Two (20.15) : After the usual spacey sounds and
beep and bleeps the music delivers soaring Mellotron flutes and
strings with a phaser sound, a wonderful dreamy climate. Then a deep
synthesizer sound and majestic Mellotron choirs, now the sequencing
joins, the combination with the Mellotron choirs turns into a very
spectacular sound, this is Electronic Music heaven! After a mellow
interlude with soaring Mellotron flutes the atmosphere changes into
bombastic with synthesizers flights, the use of the pitchbend button
is sensational! The dreamy outro delivers tender Mellotron flute runs.
Simply beautiful (and it tastes way more better than And Then There
Were Three!).

If you are into the unsurpassed electronic music of 74-77 Tangerine
Dream don't miss this warm tribute from one of the best Dutch EM projects!

15694 Tangerine Dream - Sessions 3

This CD Sessions III is my first musical encounter with the post-Edgar
Froese Tangerine Dream era. And I am pleasantly surprised, to me the
music sounds as a wonderful blend of 75-80 Tangerine Dream sound (my
favourite TD music) and ambient. Both tracks are very long (in the old
days this would have been a double vinyl album) but succeed to keep my
attention, due to flowing shifting moods and tasteful work on the
synthesizers, sequencers, percussion and electric violin/viola. The
one moment it's soaring strings and Mellotron flutes, a hypnotizing
blend of violin/viola, synthesizers and sequencers, dreamy with piano
or a distorted (like wah-wah) electric violin solo. The other moment
we can enjoy pulsating sequencers, tender violin/viola and assorted
percussion or mellow piano and percussion and final parts with dreamy
strings and beautiful violin/viola play.

SHIPPING:
Due to the fact that we use a special shipping service that provides
the shipping of parcels etc we don't have to adjust the shipping prices
at this moment. One of the reasons is that because of you our costumers
we can keep these prices so low. With over 1500 parcels shipped last year
we can stay in the lowest shipping prices!
I am glad we are one of the few suppliers of EM that did not have to raise
their shipping prices. So for the 4rth year in a row they stay the same!!
