71006 Tangerine Dream - Recurring Dreams

So this is what tangerine dream has become ? Sessions serie and cover
version of previous td tracks. Sound is great and probably this new
work will please newcomers to TD universe. But for those who are
knowing the dream for years and even had the chance to see them in
concert (my first experience dates back from 1981) will probazbly feel
the same as I, listening to this new release made me wishing to listen
to the original records containing the originals version of the tracks
from this collection. TD has always been producing new music, whatever
the line-up or the circonstances... Is the band that I used to like so
much finally dead ?
I hope not and I wish that the current band members will soon go back
to work and bring us new original tunes ! There is no sense trying to
recreate what Franke-Frose-Baumann or Franke-Froese-Schmölling did in
the past, good sense would be to create something new !

57514 Canovas, Javi - Transfiguration

'JAVI CANOVAS - TRANSFIGURATION' review by Geoff Mason. 'Hypnosis
Room' begins with loud ambient organ sounds that empty your mind ready
to be hypnotized. This gradually puts you in a 'karma', then as this
fades an attitude of a sequencer starts, along with effects, then a
second one joins in juxtaposition, with more effects that come and go.
This is really hypnotic and I am transfixed. A welcome flute is heard
taking me back to 1970's period TD. The sequencing morphs and effects
continue to great effect. This alluring brew fades out as an organ
takes over with grand atmospherics and I imagine inspiring views. A
great way to start the album! 'Transfiguration' starts with rhythmic
effects and atmos' with metallic resonances and shimmering sounds that
hang in the aureal cosmos. Sequencing is soon introduced with added
rapid keyboard playing melody, with effects and builds up even more!
This is all fantastic stuff until it eventually breaks dow n into
ambient relaxing atmospherics. I feel like I am recovering from a
rollercoaster ride! 'Way To Unknown Place' takes you into a huge dark
cavern of sound effects, very eerie, unknown and unseen journey to
nowhere, just darkness. Then suddenly a rapid sequencing pattern takes
over and my head is nodding, and feet tapping along as effects come
and go. It feels like we're on a mission going somewhere now! Keyboard
lead lines play along and this is fantastic music! More sequencing is
added and I am in raptures as all this is going on and effects
constantly being added. This track reminds me why I like Javi's music
so much. It disappears into ambient drift to end. Wow! What a track!
'The Slot' begins with strange ambient atmospheric-wind-tunnel like
effects, then dark drone and ambient textures. After a few minutes a
sequencing pattern takes over and mesmerising lead line joins in. This
soon drifts back into atmos' all too soon, but then a huge sounding
sequencer / rhythm is heard w i th breathing type effects which soon
disappear and what develops is magical rhythmic sequencers with
fantastic lead lines soaring over the top to berlin school heaven! I'm
now imagining being on a fast journey being chased by an android army
over an alien terrain. Things then drift into ambient atmos'.
Absolutely brilliant! 'Projection' starts with drifting but with
feeling of great power, then a rapid sequence takes over and morphs.
Flute is introduced and the sequencing grows with attitude, and the
flute keeping the calm. Mesmeric stuff! Then we get added layers of
sequencing and effects all wanting to unleash. New layers build and
lead lines play one after the other. It's hard to keep up. A wonderful
melting pot of music! It disappears to the sound of a flute and
relaxed ambient atmos' is restored as if returning home from a great
adventure! After listening to this album I have gone through my own
'transfiguration' and realise that Javi is surely one of the best that
the genre o f 'electronic instrumental synth music' has to offer.

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!!

===== Where to get Groove =====
As all know you can get all Groove titles on out website www.groove.nl
