Moonbooter - Beyond the Neon Lights (cdr)

EN: I am a child of the 80s. Born in 1971, I spent the formative years
of my youth in the 80s. From a musical point of view, it was this
decade that laid the foundation for many of today's genres and was
therefore something very special. With Synthpop, Acid, House, New Age,
Freestyle, Breakdance, Rap and also Punk, it is the electronic genres
that fascinated me in my youth. I also discovered classical EM during
this time. Whoever knows my music knows that all these styles are part
of my music today. 

With my 2020 album "Beyond the Neonlights" I remember the time of my
youth in the 80s. Rather, it is the elements of the music of that time
that are important to me and that I transport into the sound and
possibilities of today. Thus "Beyond the Neon Lights" has become a
maximally varied electronic album. And it should be. Because I owe
that to the good old 80s.

JOHAN TIMMAN - Trip Into The Body 

In 1981 the world of electronic music (and beyond) was enriched with
an album by the "big synthman from Holland", Johan Timman. This
experienced musician, composer and sound engineer (he collaborated
with Bolland and Bolland on the quite symphonic record The Domino
Theory, among others) created a record that described a musical
journey through the human body, a "Trip Into The Body". Timman did
that with all the beauty that synthesizer manufacturer Moog could
supply him, some devices were specially built for him by Moog. The
record brought a fresh new take on synthesizer music: accessible,
melodic, symphonic and very well played and constructed. The album
received several positive reviews when it came out. If you ever want
to buy a record that can guide you through the best features Moog
instruments have to offer (except perhaps the MemoryMoog which didn't
exist then), this is the one to have. Every track on the record tells
a little story about a specific part of the body. A good example of
what Timman is capable of is The Heart which has a nice melody and
gives a very positive feeling. The same goes for tracks like The Blood
Cells And The Antibodies (Look Out For The Killer), The Lungs and
Hearing (Ocean Of Sound). Pieces that show that Timman had developed
his own sound. Trip Into The Body did really well when it came out and
it put Timman on the electronic music map (and beyond). Perhaps the
sound in 2006 sounds a bit dated, but that does not spoil the fun.
Unfortunately, there is no sequel yet (but there is hope), so we
should cherish this (second) release on CD, a mastering by Ron Boots.
This version has a bonus track, The Heart (Still Beating) live in the US.

LAMBERT - Drachenreise

In the nineties I came into contact with the music of the German
electronic musician Lambert Ringlage (better known by his first name).
His music contained beautiful sequencer lines as well as cool melodies
and reminded me at several times of the work of Tangerine Dream from
the eighties. His last solo CD was released more than 20 years ago.
Over the years he has worked a lot with others, including in the duo
Hypnosphere and he was busy with his label Spheric Music. With
Drachenreise he is back as a solo artist. He immediately makes a good
impression in the opening song Corona. This has a special TD touch.
The beautiful guitar solo is played by none other than Gandalf. The
hint to TD can also be heard in the sequences in Stairs and the chords
in Motion. The sequences work very strongly in Hill. To be honest, I
don't think all songs on Drachenreise are equally strong. Sometimes I
hear a slight New Age atmosphere (Estranho, Source). At other times,
such as Call, there is more threat. Jean Michel Jarre and Wavestar are
also greeted in the title piece. It's nice that Lambert is back in the
solo field. Drachenreise may be slightly weaker than his earlier CDs,
but definitely worth a listen for people who like melodic electronic
music with strong sequences.

gr10002 Tonal Assembly - Meditation No.1

It is Tonal Assembly, like not quite! Rather, it is Dr. Taede A.
Smedes who presents a short story from Tonal Assembly that presents a
new artist, not a new project. In fact, it is Tonal Assembly which
presents The Arkhive: MEDITATION No.1. A little confusing !? Let's
clear it up… MEDITATION No.1 is a side project to that of Tonal
Assembly which took shape one night when Dr Smedes was trying out
stuff with piano plug-ins when he saw that there was something special
in a series of chords. He worked out this beginning of something that
took shape in his subconscious until he found these snippets of
disillusioned melodies that will charm you throughout the three
chapters of this album. Seeing potential in front of these piano
verses, there followed a period of fertilization where Smedes sought a
way to integrate sounds around what he called the supernatural beauty
of minimalist music. Hey, no… nothing here sounds like Lost And Found
In Imaginar y Landscapes.

It's with a delicate series of notes winding the tops, since a
delicious apple dangles at the end of a high branch, that Meditation
No.1 - 1 begins. From then on, electronic cui-cui are humming and
their effects of reverberations become distant hoops that are molded
to another series of notes of this pensive piano. These synth effects,
fluttering like these monarchs in search of winds or simply falling
without ever reaching the ground, accompany the silent march of the
piano that Dr. Taede A. Smedes carries around in his moments of
melancholy. These pensive notes live with timbres which are sometimes
illuminated, as if austere, playing on the strings of melancholy as on
those of these ephemeral pleasures. Sometimes following the current of
integrated sound effects or playing against these currents, the
melodies have from time to time this lightness of living like these
aphasic heaviness of the darkest moments of a day. While on the one
hand the sound effects ar e meant to reflect the piano, sometimes they
are very south of it. These imbalances are what makes it possible to
listen to the 3 parts of MEDITATION No.1 without feeling too much the
effects of redundancy which are even absent after listening in loops
of this surprising album.

Especially since Meditation No.1 - 2 adds some extra notes to these
melodic bits of life and uses more of the motion layers of piano on
top of layers of piano. In doing so, we find the best moments of this
album there while Taede Smedes literally makes his fingers dance on
this false piano that he makes articulate like a real one. More
passion also means the same for the sound effects which obscure the
magical sky of Meditation No.1 - 2 with moments of infinite
tenderness, thus giving goosebumps to my heartbeat. The only beat I
heard in MEDITATION No.1! There are times where I had this impression
of hearing a cross between Philip Glass and Raphael, as
experimentation and New Age melody clash in the d arkest corners of
this second part. And if we felt that the end of Meditation No.1 - 1
would inject breath into Meditation No.1 - 2, the same principle
applies to Meditation No.1 - 3 where the scents of Mannheim
Steamroller and his magnificent Interlude series fill my ears of
nostalgia. Darker and much more esoteric, this third part is also the
most explosive with its bursts of passion that occur in intense phases
of restraint that go beyond the petticoat too easily.

A second part is already in motion for the new minimalist adventures
of Meditation. I have nothing against the idea since it is indeed
incredibly beautiful. It would be just too bad for Taede A. Smedes to
focus only on this project instead of that of Tonal Assembly which had
been one of the good albums in 2019.

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!!
