Hi All

E-DAY 2020

After a wildly successful and  near sold-out October Edition of E-Live
it's now time to focus on the 11th of April 2020 for E-Day 2020

We will have a great day with this stellar line up

This newly formed super-band has it's first time ever live show on our
stage. No need to say we are super proud.

Sequentia Legenda with Tommy Betzler
Laurent "Sequentia Legenda" Schieber from France carries the torch of
the Berlin sequencing school like no other. And makes it his own. A
performance we can't wait for.

Nothing but Noise
As they say themselves, Nothing But Noise from Belgium makes
atmospheric, pulsating soundscapes for everyday's survival. Quite
looking forward how this translates in an undoubtedly exciting live show.

Tonal Assembly
Dutchy Taede Smedes is not only a philosopher and writer, but also  a
superb electronic musician. With his 2019 album on GrooveUnlimited
still in mind, we are eager to see what Taede comes up with on stage.

37710 Canovas, Javi - Mens Demersa

'Aurora' begins with a powerful ambient tone and build up of dramatic
effects. This suits the cover art perfectly! Majestic organ sounds and
atmospherics create a soundscape that reminds me of a great storm
passing through. This morphs and becomes more quiet, then a heavy
drum-like bass beat starts up, and growing rhythmic sequencing
develops, building a heavy but groovy brew. I am being hypnotised by
this music that is slightly different in feel for Javi, and quite a
good flow has already established and sequencing builds and excellent
effects come and go. This really is great head nodding stuff indeed.
Eventually it all dissolves like a mist and I imagine the storm has
passed and we are left with a beautiful 'aurora' light show in the
sky, giving hope for the future, to end. Wonderful piece!
'Mens Demersa' starts like I imagine being in a cavern. The ambient
atmos' is quite spooky and builds slowly. I imagine being in an
emotionally dark place, searching for the light. It all dissipates and
a rhythmic echoing acoustic beat develops with accompanying effects,
and a grand atmospheric organ sound joins in. This gradually builds
and drawing me in as if an even bigger storm is stirring. The mood
remains mysterious, then lightens briefly, then a huge atmospheric
wave of emotional organ sounds wash over me like a tsunami at about 12
minutes! This eventually subsides as if leaving devastation behind and
a rhythm builds with effects and sequencing starts to join with more
effects being constantly added, getting more intense, and louder with
added attitude and waves of emotion, and gets groovier by the minute!
I imagine 'dark angels' have come to wreak havoc on this stormy world
of ours. The playing is absolutely fantastic! This could be either
sequencer heaven or hell, depending on your imagination. Eventually it
all disappears into atmos' as if the sun has opened the storm clouds,
shin i ng down with a feeling of relief that the angels have been
banished to where they came from. Amazing!
'Dubium' begins atmospherically, feeling claustrophobic and ominous,
then a rhythm builds and atmos' changes with a dramatic feel, then a
rapid sequencing takes over as if being transported into the heavens
above. I imagine flying through broken clouds and into an abyss.
'D-May' starts with an anomolly 'twin' click-click, a sign from God
perhaps? Heavy atmospherics, dense and powerful build with growing
strength, then a heavy bass beat and rhythm come to light and build up
with atmos' effects. Flute sounding lead line and sequencing with
quivering effects add to the mix, and builds further into quite a
brew, flute returns along with effects and I imagine now being a
sphinx flying across fields of daisies, poppies, and other flowers of
all colours and shades of the rainbow spectrum, like an aurora spread
across the landscape, reflecting the skies above during a magnetic
heave nly display of lights! I feel energised and positive now the
storm has passed, and as I listen, I feel the warmth of a bright summer's day.
Thank you Javi for this inspired album, it really is a pleasure to
listen to your wonderful music!
I dedicate this review to the twins, 'Aurora-May' and 'Daisy-May'. God
bless you both. xx

gr-277 Ellis, Paul - Interstellar-Nataraja

Creativity at the top of its art! This is what comes to my mind in
order to better describe INTERSTELLAR-NATARAJA. I was convinced, after
reading one of his posts, that Paul Ellis was done with EM. The lack
of press interest and the level of sales, which is unacceptable for so
many hours of creating music, had finally got the better of his moods
after the excellent Moth In Flames in 2015. It's thus with amazement,
mixed with a great pleasure, that I read that the American musician
was making a comeback. And what a comeback! Built primarily with
analog equipment, Paul Ellis offers a complex album (are we
surprised?) that will captivate you from the first listen. All the
perfumes of the great masters of contemporary EM perfume this album
which will enchant you little by little until its final which
literally took me by surprise. And INTERSTELLAR-NATARAJA doesn't start
that easy.

Two notes fall to form an introduction thought in nostalg ia. These
notes are struggling to dance, or even to sing. Except that the ballet
very uncertain of its melodious approach is quickly surrounded by a
rain of arpeggios without direction and by synth pads which launch
jets of flutes and reverberant snoring. Chaotic, perhaps even
cacophonous, the first moments of Interstellar-Nataraja Part 1 are
enveloped by dark atmospheres which all the same flirt with a faint
seraphic gleam, hiding in the misty flute jets, and with crystalline
arpeggios which illuminate at times this sound mass rich of its
tangles of sound textures. While this ambient rhythm gets built and
deconstructed itself, the decor advances with its herd of unruly
arpeggios and gradually transforms, even imbibing an amphibian texture
with chords soaked in water and in organic viscosity. A glaucous
texture is added to these ambiences of which some jerky synth pads
stimulate in silence an ambient electronic rhythm. But in all of this,
arpeggios and synth pads are exchanging wit h short harmonic filaments
that will haunt you the second time you listen to this track which
embraces a heavy finale with its sound mass and eclectic tones in an
intense poignant vision. The latest chords of electrified juice take
us to the colorful structure of Interstellar-Nataraja Part 2 and its
thousand jewels dancing on circular wooshh soaked in the cosmic
textures of Jean-Michel Jarre. A synth chant, like a mechanical
elephant trumpeting, rises between the clicking of sonic jewels, thus
continuing this cinematic vision of a blockbuster movie that sticks to
the music of this amazing comeback album from Paul Ellis. Our journey
among the 77 minutes of INTERSTELLAR-NATARAJA makes us hear of all
sound colors. Interstellar-Nataraja Part 3 offers a structure like
part 1, but with a more musical and cosmic vision. The flow is also
slower, making it more melodious. These harmonious filaments that we
heard here clearly form the main melodic line of the album. Our ears,
like our senses, are therefore able to grasp all the tonal subtleties
of this good cosmic progressive electronic rock. The ambient mass
dominates the few rhythmic implosions which merge with a tonal
richness which is constantly renewed. Like with its swirling and
gurgling effects, without forgetting the essences of Pink Floyd and
those vaporous gas effects which add to the decor of
Interstellar-Nataraja Part 3. Meditative chords, resonant like gong
effects, bring us at the pinnacle of INTERSTELLAR-NATARAJA,
Interstellar-Nataraja part 4.

Its opening rests on a buzzing machine and chords floating in a cosmic
atmosphere with a symphony of wooshh and wiishh. The decor reminds me
of Set the Controls for the Heart of the Mother from the The Dark Side
of the Moog series by Schulze/Namlook. The wooshh and the wiishh
whistle hard above our heads, mingling with dense textures of organic
resonance where wolves are hiding, and whose ululations pierce a sound
membrane that whisk our senses with streams of orchestrations as jerky
as unexpected. This opening ideal to portray a nightmare, follows the
progression of the arpeggios which trail Interstellar-Nataraja part 4
since its 4 minutes, bringing it to the brink of a sonic disorder
driven by the pulses coming from a rhythmic implosion which is lost in
a final full of uncertainties. Both in terms of the evolution of
Interstellar-Nataraja part 4 and our feelings towards this album which
from time to time awakes souvenirs of the album I Am Here. This tonal
storm gone, Interstellar-Nataraja part 5 opens with a wave and synth
songs as attractive as those of Ulysses' bewitching mermaids. We are
in a superb phase of ambiences that will remind to some of you this
delicious ascending choir of Michael Stearns in Chronos. This movement
stretches its charms beyond the 7 minutes when giant resonant
pulsations forge the opposite of the ethereal beauties of this ascent
which ends in a heavy rhythm, resonant and effective like good old
Redshift. A storm of synth loops set up after a failed rhythmic
attempt in a wall of variegated tones. Wolves are coming back!
Suddenly, everything emerges to offer a rhythm which flirts with the
down-tempos of a good full-bodied psybient with these reverberations
that move like big sound snakes since the genesis of
INTERSTELLAR-NATARAJA. This phase of Electronica à la Arc evaporates
in a final full of nostalgia. We recognize these uncertain chords
which now pulsate in a melodious fabric, while other chords come to
dance an ambient cha-cha-cha. The movement is lost in a fall of
resonant drones, like a hungry Redshift, to conclude in an acoustic
final where Nathan Youngblood and Will Merkle join Paul Ellis to add
another dimension to this album which could not have hoped for a
better final. We make play another time INTERSTELLAR-NATARAJA! And
already, some things that annoyed us take all of their meanings,
testifying that all these areas of turbulence and inconsistencies that
made circulate th e tunes of this album are thought and designed with
an astonishing power of seduction, of attraction. A great album
composed, played, mixed and mastered with master's hand.

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!!
