Hi All

E-Live 2019 is over, with total of around 297 visitor it was GREAT!!
With over 330 people including the stand holders and the guests in the building
we had a brilliant festival. I want to thanks all Acts for this marvelous day.
Thanks also to all workers at the Enck, especially Bart and Mike (light sound)

Special thanks to all my Minions on the day.!! Without you it would not be possible.
Thanks to Andre Stooker and Christain Jansen (C-Jay) for all the Facebook PR work.
And to Monique, Sonja and Bert for managing the stall.

But this years biggest thanks goes to YOU!! The audience.
No cynicism, no hassle, wonderful people around us and a superb atmosphere.
My deepest gratitude to all who where there, supported, helped, played and visited!

Now to my personal impression of this year's E-Live.
We started off really relaxed with the usuals Friday Chinese dinner at our home.
Okay, not for Stephen Whitlan, he is not a fan of what he calls "Muck" :-)
But he knows his way around the Boots house so we know he won't starve.
12 Guests (among them Wendy and Ian Boddy, Johan Tronestam, Elaine and David Wright and the
usual guests from the UK. (no Brexit discussions where allowed by the UK bunch :-) !!
A lovely evening with friends I would call this!

And this evening set the mood for one of the greatest E-Live to date.
Buildup was smooth and without any glitches (ok the occasional hum but that was solved quick)
Ansgar Stock started on 13.10 and the upper room was packet!
You could not get in anymore. And from what I gather from the reactions, it was great!

- C-Jay, a new name but an old fox on stage (he is a well known and travelled DJ!
Music was fresh, new and great to watch because both Rob Papen and C-Jay got
Hans Bijloo, a great video artist to create visuals for them on the back drop.
A mixture of Berlin School and ambient flowed into the room. A great opener for the
day. It set the mood for a very relaxed day.

BKS - right on time we started with BKS. You can not go wrong with this trio.
Solid, warm, melodious and visually great. These guys know how to capture an
audience and create a fantastic atmosphere.
90 minutes passed like nothing and the hall gave them a great applause.

Rob Papen - for the first time since he was 15, back solo on stage.
What a musician, what a performance. Seldom do we see a standing ovation but
here it was!! His set had the perfect blend of melodic and powerful EM song.
And the visuals of Hans Bijloo were great to look at and enhanced the music.
You can not have a better come back on the stage then this. EM alive and kicking!!

Ian Boddy - An Alchemist in sound, NO visuals, NO specials,
nothing more then a man and his machines.
Wires, knobs, keys and inspiration! The breathing part of this
musical entity is called Ian Boddy. He is like a Borg from Star Trek.
Resistance is Futile for the listener and watcher.

You get drawn in.
He mesmerizes you with his performance, moving around on stage.
Getting his little and BIG toys to create pure musical magic.
The music flows around you, over you, through you, in you.

Scary noises, Thumping sequences and delicate add-ons make this an experience.
Pure musical bliss that transported the hall back to the beginning of EM.
This is how it must have felt when, for the first time you experienced Klaus Schulze
or Tangerine Dream live.

Not just loud bellowing out music from speakers but softly caressing the audience.
At times also scaring them, throwing them in turmoil. Even shaking the hall.
A second standing ovation for one of the greatest living performers we have in our scene!

What A Day we had!! We had no overruns, delays or hold ups.
All concerts started on time, and at 22.45 slowly the audience came back from what
I think was a travel through awesome Electronic music!
Thanks for this great day.

Neuland (BAUMANN & HASLINGER) - NEULAND (2CD-2019) (2-cd) 22043
Double CD with all 15 tracks from Peter Baumann & Paul Haslinger.
Expected November 2019.

Neuland translates into ‘New Territory’ and reflects the unusual
musical and visual landscape at the core of this project.<br><br>

Neuland was designed as a sensory exploration at a time when many
aspects of the landscape of electronic music have come full circle, as
the origins of popular electronic music are rediscovered and
re-contextualized by a new audience. “We ultimately don’t know where
this path will lead us, but we enjoy diving into the unknown,” says Haslinger.

gr-275 Tronestam, Johan - Cosmic Drama

Johan Tronestam is one of the true values in Berlin School style of EM
flavored of melodious approaches. From album to album, and since Far
Away in 2012, the Swedish synthesist, who now lives in Finland on the
Åland Islands, is doing things simple by offering a lively electronic
music where the complexity in the structures is almost non-existent.
The rhythms are steady with fine nuances that slightly modify them in
a sober and efficient cosmic setting that is greatly influenced by
Jean-Michel Jarre. Skillful in his way of creating rhythms, JT is just
as much in his melodious structures that are copiously sprinkled of
very good synth solos; the essence of EM. COSMIC DRAMA is a 15th
album, the first on the Dutch label Groove nl, and from his own
confession, it's a philosophical emergence that follows the Space
Collection album. Staying much comfortable in this genre of more
homogeneous rhythms than disparate or convoluted, he offers us another
good album with synths that illuminate the ears by his solos and
arrangements that always gives us this good dose of gooseflesh when
our ears meet the beautiful music of Johan Tronestam. And it starts strong!

Interstellar Space moves us with its rhythm of a cosmic tribe and that
of an electronic rock cleverly concocted with a mesh of aboriginal
tam-tams and electronic percussions to which is grafted a bounding
structure of the sequencer. Keyboard riffs are lost in echo effects
while synth pads install haze and vocals. The synth stays pretty close
to Robert Schroeder's areas with nice harmonies and as many nuances in
the timbre. The sound effects are in the tone, while Interstellar
Space drifts towards another structure of rhythm, always on the same
cadence, molded in a melodious fluty approach. It starts very well
this last opus of Johan Tronestam which is all in steady rhythms
evolving barely with some nuances in banks of cosmic mist and of
celestial voices. Perspectives o n Infinity is another good title! Its
introduction is rocked by the illusion of a melancholic cosmos with
synth pads triturated by percussive effects and caressed by delicate
chords whose jingles merge seamlessly with the shadows of the layers.
A structure of rhythm fixed by percussions and two lines of sequences
which send oscillations in order to increase the pace whereas the
synth skillfully draws solos as evasive as melodious. The decor and
the arrangements are essentially identical for the slow rhythm and the
gassy percussions in Orion. The Philosophical Trigger offers another
good electronic rhythm with strings of shimmering arpeggios that spin
with a timid harmonic vision. The synth releases fluffy pads that
harmonize with the rhythm of the sequencer and of the electronic
percussions while throwing some pretty good aerial solos.

The opening of Further Away reminds me of Pink Floyd in Wish you Were
Here, reverberant snoring in more. A delicate spheroidal march is hatc
hing out shortly after 4 minutes. JT adds another movement of the
sequencer with keys jumping nervously. He then grafts good harmonious
solos that adopt these rhythmic nuances. Dedicated to his friend
Wolfgang Gsell, Interstellar Meeting With W is a long title that
offers a heavenly introduction with synth layers that give us small
shivers to the soul. The sighs of the bass line are like a dumb
language that seem to communicate with the weeping pads, setting up a
nice cosmic nostalgia that suits so well to the vision of serenity of
his friend. Orchestral reveries add to the weight of melancholy. The
sequencer goes into a gallop mode with a constant rhythm structure
where get grafted notes with tonalities sounding like strings from a
guitar pinched with emotion. The cosmic voyage is nice with layers of
voices that maintain this aura of astral intimacy between Johan
Tronestam and Wolfgang Gsell and then by beautiful synth solos that
are the favorite weapon of the Finnish musician to g ive us nice
thrills. Perpetuity offers a brisk pace with a jerky movement of the
sequencer and its rhythmic keys that jump in series, in tail-leu-leu.
Not aggressive, this rhythm flows with great fluidity to serve as a
moving bed for other good solos from Johan Tronestam. Hubbles Universe
completes COSMIC DRAMA with an evolving structure filled with
fragrances of Robert Schroeder and Peter Mergener. Its slow
introduction is drawn from another vision than the one that we find in
Further Away. So, it breathes, while the rhythm walks on the paths of
Klaus Schulze and his Body Love period. The introductory moods guide
the ambient walk of Hubbles Universe, which is animated by another
more incisive rhythmic vision around the 11 minutes, thus guiding the
final of this last album of Johan Tronestam which requires a suite.

Not complicated for 2 cents, enveloping, melodious and touching at
times, this COSMIC DRAMA by Johan Tronestam is this kind of album that
is easily invited in a tasting of EM for refined ears. Whether you
like it complex or just accessible, the music of the Finnish synth
magician has everything you need to make you an addict of his albums.

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!!
