And some really cool CDs are released these coming days.


Release date 18th October 2018
Limited to 555 copies. Digipak CD format

Tone Science sub-label, from DiN records, continues to explore the
world of modular synth music.

Following the success and critical acclaim of the first two Tone
Science compilation albums, DiN label boss Ian Boddy has collated
another nine tracks from musicians of varying backgrounds  working in
the realms of modular synthesis.

Three of these names will be familiar to DiN listeners whereas the
other six are new to the label.
Thus the album opens with a shimmering soundscape from American
ambient pioneer Robert Rich who has previously collaborated with Boddy
on three DiN releases. Well known for his infamous “sleep concerts”
Rich here focuses in on the sonic details that modular synthesisers
can offer the composer. The following two tracks by Caspar Hesselager
and Little Ambient Machine show beautifully how a simple melodic
sequenced phrase can be shifted, fractured and refocused in the
analogue domain.

The mid album section then features two very different tracks with a
more experimental feel. Radek Rudnicki cleverly mixes samples of
traditional Japanese music controlled in the modular world with great
swathes of analogue synth whereas Eden Grey uses her modular in a very
retro, radiophonic manner to conjure up the raw sounds of yesteryear.

The music returns to sequenced tracks with synth maestro Benge
lightening the mood with the Kraftwerk like motifs of “Round #2”. The
next track, “Angel”, is by d’Voxx who recently had their debut album,
“Télégraphe” (DiN58) released on the DiN label to great acclaim. Once
again they show off their skilful use of sequences with melodic
progressions to create a captivating track. The album has it’s sonic
climax with “Berserker” by Redshift which after a dark sonic intro
section goes into overdrive with a huge Moog modular system going full
tilt. Redshift is none other than Mark Shreeve who has been a long
time collaborator with Boddy in the ARC project which has spawned
several releases on the DiN label.

Finally after such a huge sounding piece the album calmly dissipates
through the beautifully simplistic yet haunting “Hands” by Jogging
House to bring to a close another varied and intriguing Tone Science album.

“Tone Science Module No.3 Cosines and Tangents” continues the journey
down the rabbit hole of possibilities and sound worlds inhabited by
artists and musicians working in this ever fascinating and varied
musical field.

Dreamerproject - BEYOND DREAMS (cd) 19973
Details/ordering: http://www.groove.nl/jump2.php?artnum=19973

Beyond Dreams is a collection of music from the catalogue of DreamerProject.
It is a “story so far” containing re mastered tracks and remixes from
various EPs and CD releases, plus three exclusive new tracks.

Beyond Dreams is much more than just a compilation though, it is a
tour de force highlighting DreamerProject’s unique style, which for
reference is a mix of Vangelis and Chris Franke.

DreamerProject has a gift for melody and atmosphere, a mixture of
‘moody’ and ‘innocent’ that tug at the emotions though hauntingly
beautiful themes and delicate rhythms and sequences. The music is
dreamy with great depth and should find favour with fans of
traditional electronic, new age and chill-out music alike.

Guest artists on the album include David Wright, Glenn Main and Real World.
This beautiful album is both an ideal introduction to the breathtaking
musical worlds of DreamerProject and a ‘must have’ for existing fans.

Highly recommended.

gr-272 Frank Doritkke - NIKO

When he sent me this album, Frank had written; it's a whole new sound,
a new style for me. And he was absolutely right! NIKO is just a name
which that doesn't mean anything, as it can say everything. It can
mean a moment of overwhelming sadness, like an astral journey. For
Frank Dorritke, it's almost 60 minutes of dreams full of hope and
happiness. Like its opposite, almost an hour of fear and sadness. And
this bipolar side is extremely well felt in the first concept album of
the German musician. It's a soundtrack for the mind with our
imagination as a cinematographic projector. In fact, FD Project
actually surfs on a movie music! The arrangements are meant for this
purpose, with atmospheres sometimes folkloric and sometimes medieval
reminiscent of the music of Games of Thrones, such as that of The Lord
of the Ring. But even if Frank wanted to offer a unique album, it
remains that the imprint of Mike Oldfield, the motor of his influences
and creativity of the rocky guitarist, blows over NIKO's 10 tracks.
"The Journey Starts" with a strange musical alarm clock. An acoustic
guitar and castanets effects adorn an introduction in ballad mode. The
falling drums give a rockier impulse to an introductory track which is
built on the exchanges between an acoustic six-string and a piano.
Note, don't search the riffs and solos of the electric guitar! Since
this instrument is totally absent on this album which has a more
bucolic and acoustic vision, than electronic. The style is light with
a lively rhythm. The synth is present behind this acoustic duel with
chirps and some good solos. The arrangements are quite penetrating
with Elvish voice effects that merge into the harmonies of the synth
and its solos. "The Arrival and Discoveries" is an intense title with
big percussions, kind of those stimulating ones for rowers in the
dragon-boats, and a rain of staccatos by violins hidden in the
interstices of the synth. The vision is pre tty cinematic with good
arrangements. Between Oldfield and Gandalf of the 90's! Each title is
linked in a long mosaic of 57 minutes, and it's without knowing that
we have just left "The Arrival and Discoveries" that "The First Day
(Morning and Night)" clings to our ears with a slow pace which is
nurtured by acoustic six-string's riffs and percussions throwers of
vaporous jets. The orchestrations have an arabic scents. In short, a
cute track which savors an electronic portion with a circular effect
slightly stroboscopic and a bass line, perhaps the sequencer, which
gurgles and croaks. The Elvish choir adds at the seraphic decor.
"Dancing in the Woods" rooted this vision of Mike Oldfield's album
with an astonishing folkloric approach that can be likened to a party
in the land of Hobbits. Violin, acoustic guitar and bass drums
stimulate a popular dance on a balmy summer evening in the land of
Bilbo Baggins.

Soft and sentimental, "Mary Alone" is another ballad which drags the
bindle of its light rhythm between more ambient phases. Its intro
develops slowly with a synth which whistles some nice floating
harmonies. The chimes that tinkle in the background are as harmonic as
the synth. The percussions structure a kind of hyper-melodious
up-tempo with a cello at the troll. The music embraces an ambient
phase where a guitar sculpts a melody caressed by shadows of violins.
And hop! The rhythm becomes again charmer and all nice after this
short dream phase. Weeping violin on waves and synth swirls blown by a
strange beast, "Encounters" hides a very electronic approach behind
the catchy chords of the six-string acoustic. The sequencer sculpts a
stationary rhythm which moves with the tuning of percussions, a good
bass line and riffs which became catchier. The music becomes a dynamic
ballad with good electronic arrangements. "Friend and Enemy" follows
with this Oldfield's folklore vision. Violin of yesteryear and
virginal choir unite lightness and harmony before the pa t h of war
opens with big percussions that thunder under the ominous shades of
the synth and a burst of staccatos. It's in the medieval, genre Games
of Thrones. The first 3 minutes of "The Cave" are drawn from the
ambient territories. First, a series of jingles and a thoughtful

Shadows of the synth weave a dark decor with silent breezes.
The piano notes encourage the mood to become more intense until the
percussions get it out of its torpor, after 3 minutes. A brief, catchy
ballad follows. "The Last Day" offers an Arab tribal vision with
tam-tams which activate a stationary rhythm. The synth offers here a
pleasant melody weaver of earworm with a sharpness tone. And, like the
vast majority of titles in NIKO, the structure changes direction to
become more intense, livelier while maintaining the very harmonious
approach of the synth. The music really reflects the spirit of the
title. "Goodbye and Back Home" ends this odyssey in our imaginations
with chirping of birds and Elvish v o ices in a tropical setting.

An acoustic guitar lays down its notes which get coil to this voice so
seraphic, and this synth coming from nowhere and its dreamy song.
Layers of fiddles obscure the decor with lazy flights. This
introduction is in the Mike Oldfield mold and The Songs of Distant
Earth. We are in New Age all that is more melodious with a subtle and
catchy rhythm, like good pop without a song on it. The second part is
more daring with an electronic approach nuanced by a shade of Jazz.
What to think of this NIKO from FD Project? Well, I will be honest;
it's a very harmonious album that has this Oldfield's New Age soul
from his Warner era albums. There is no place for Berlin School style
here. No sequencer, or very little! His electric guitar is completely
absent, no big thunderous solos, or heavy riffs that cut out your
emotions. It's musical, harmonious and it's very nice to hear. In
short, a New Age opus that I will listen certainly when my senses seek
a quay for appe asement.

the shipping of parcels etc we don't have to adjust the shipping prices

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!!
