29219 Danger in Dream - Iconic

Come on! Say the name quickly. Say Danger in Dream quickly, quickly!
Like music, the words in your mouth come close to illusion; Tangerine
Dream! If you missed the wonderful Entrance in 2001, don't miss
ICONIC. If 18 years separate the only two albums of the German-Swiss
duo, the music and the composition structures of Robert Wittek and
Alexander Guelfenburg have not evolved an iota. And it shouldn't!
Astrosteron begins slowly. A rise of synth lines coming from the East
is coupled with a reverberation wave, while the keyboard makes dance a
melody which revolves slowly. The breaths of synths have this metallic
and symphonic air. Memories are awakening behind the membrane of my
eardrum. And even more when a line of the sequencer makes it keys
dancing with symmetrical jumps, and the ambiences are perfumed with
pads and a dialogue between synths, like in the days of Exit. And
while Astrosteron Part 1 merges into the offerings of Astrosteron P
art 2, the magic of the Johannes Schmoelling years sparkles between
our ears. Bass pulsations, duck-cyborg voice, multi-colored pads,
sequencer riffs, dribbling of sequencer balls, percussive elements,
percussions with muffled gas effects and finally vocals and sound
effects from the Exit years! The panorama is full of these effects, in
addition to this synth whose tones in the layers and solos are
reminiscent more particularly of Entrance, but always influenced by
the Dream. It's therefore with a static rhythm approach that Danger In
Dream sets out the hunt to EM fans who feasted of the neuron box with
the music of Tangerine Dream, from Tangram to Hyperborea. We are far
from Stratus 4, but the best is yet to come.
Divided into 3 acts, the title-track establishes an ambient rhythm
line with manual percussions and a swarm of sequences hopping with a
limpid drop effect transforming into a limpid percussive sequence
which will ooze and tinkle throughout Iconic. Layers and a spiral line
of melody follow this procession which is armed with new sequences and
percussions in order to give a slight velocity to the music which will
become much more animated in its third act. The envelope of the synths
and their effects are very close to the Tangram years. The slightly
spasmodic rhythm, Deep Blue is a nice ballad of the White Eagle genre
from which rises a beautiful synth solo which embellishes the
listening as much as these slamming percussions which follow its
evolution. A very good title which flows towards a pure remake of the
opening of Tangram, at least for the first part of Skylink Part 1. The
armada of percussive elements here reaches an unexpected level in what
becomes a good electronic rock guided by sober electronic percussions.
We close our eyes and the Dream becomes almost reality. As if a secret
agent had stolen archives from the Franke, Froese, Schmoelling trio!
Skylink Part 2 continues the evolution with a slightly stroboscopic
spheroidal structure t h at can be found in Network, still from Exit.
The cadence slowly decreasing, we arrive at Arctic Mysteries where
synth solos compete with a fauna of percussive elements and sound
effects à la White Eagle, Mojave Plan, in a structure leaping in its
static fabric but oh so lively of its multiple effects. With our ears
still in seduction mode, we probably reach the pinnacle of ICONIC with
the Electric Fields trilogy. It's almost 20 minutes of electronic
rock, rather frenzied I would say, watching our feet tapping nervously
on a rhythm that mixes spasmodic and leaping visions quite well. As in
the Entrance's finale, Danger in Dream raises its level of composition
by a notch with a more personal structure where elements and effects
from the 80's are grafted, as much from the music of Tangerine Dream
as that of EM in general. I'm thinking in particular of Jean-Michel Jarre.
Less charming at first listen than the huge Entrance, of which I
ardently wish a reissue, ICONIC remains a very g ood album with almost
45 minutes which are tamed without any difficulty. The mega Electric
Fields earning its points with each new listening. The multiplicity of
sound effects, including creativity in percussive elements, make this
album a jewel that delights each time you listen to it. It is a must
for fans of Tangerine Dream with influences and similarities that
range from Tangram to Hyperborea. The sound quality and production are
impeccable, like the 62 minutes of this album which has been playing
in loops since I received it from Virtual Music.

88109 Mullaney, Nigel - 31 Days

We are used to seeing the name of Nigel Mullaney with that of Jonathan
Jowett, and most recently with Ian Boddy in the splendid Schemes &
Ruses at the end of 2019. In fact, 31 seems to be his very first solo
album. This title stems from a project that Nigel has imposed on
himself; either to compose a title a day all the month of January
2018. In the studio or on the road, each of these titles were recorded
without overdubs or mixing. This resulted in over 4 hours of material
that Ian Boddy carefully listened to and organized, as he does so well
with the Index compilations, in a long 70-minute music mosaic divided
in 11 titles. The result is a completely attractive album where the
unexpected takes on its full meaning in a sound envelope that always
transcends the limits of DiN Records' creativity.

It's in a form of tribal Electronica that seraphic synth waves push
Dusk is the Musk towards this new adventure all in sounds out of DiN.
T heir chants draw arches of serenity with good orchestrations which
aim at a pinnacle of intensity. We hear flutes moaning as the movement
turns into wind with a clarinet that sings in a new nucleus of
intensity. Pulsations, around the 4th minute, gently direct the music
towards a percussions' sphere where various elements forge a nicely
disordered structure which leaves plenty of room for this clarinet and
its Arabic airs. Running Rings announces the true colors of 31 with
reverberation lines that sculpt a rhythmic framework in a universe of
psybient. The rhythm is catchy with very variegated sound effects
which compete with a high yield of percussive effects and its organic
derivatives. We stamp our feet and roll our necks, until a brief
interlude of atmospheres revives a clearly more animated structure.
Great Electronica! You can see my House from up Here offers a
flotation zone between an Electronica not too hard and a good
synth-pop well surrounded by various effects of underly i ng rhythms
and by a fauna of sound effects much more interesting than the rhythm.
This fauna rich in modular synth innovations and the multiple
derivatives of percussive effects enhance the very progressive
dimension of this album. After a struggle between very active
oscillating lines which plays out in a very interesting soundscape,
Done Processing stands out by offering a curt rhythm which is fixed to
good percussions and these oscillating lines imbued with bass. We are
at the limit of a big English electronic rock here. And it seems that
the more we advance in 31, the more the sound effects become more
originals. Dutch Knowledge is a wonderful piece! A musical drama
impregnated with a fairly intense cinematic vision, at the level of
orchestral arrangements and atmospheres, which gives us shivers to the
soul while makes floating and intertwining the hairs of our arms.

A floating strobe movement pulls Ghost Dog to our ears. Closer to the
Cosmos than the bowels of our Eart h, the psychedelic and morphic
atmospheres cause the Ghost Dog vessel to drift until it is harpooned
by a curt rhythm which is animated by percussions and their percussive
gases. Possibly an Ambient House, the rhythmic structure trains our
feet but keeps our mind firmly riveted on this envelope of psybient
which will encircle the title into an ambient final. Here, like on the
finale of Dusk is the Musk, a piano reminds us of the scale of
dimensions that exists in 31. Lethargy is livelier with loops of
rhythmic oscillations well fixed to percussion in a genre of floating
Hip-Hop. The percussive fauna and sound effects here are even more
imaginative than at the start of the adventure of this first solo
album by Nigel Mullaney. With Older, M606 offers the most rhythmic
textures of the album. The lines of jerky oscillations which revolve
around a bass line with organic chords cling to percussion patterns
from the world of Dance Music! It's very catchy with lines of
sequences as jerky a s they are manipulated in the form of dribbles.
The structure hesitates between the branches offered by more
meditative phases before resuming its usual form. As for Older, it
keeps its foot on the accelerator with its structure heavy of its
clouds of radioactive oscillations. As of the opening and its bass
pulsations, we know that Black Foot will be cut in the mystery of
heavy and slow rocks à la The Cure. It's an intense track with
continuous riff lines that bellow in an environment pecked by multiple
sound effects. It’s the kind of music for horror movies with a gothic
vision. The second part is simply amazing! Imagine now when followed
by Older! And how to conclude this magnificent album? With a title as
intense and poignant, minus the arrangements, as Dutch Knowledge. And
that's what the slow and suggestive rhythm of The Lost art of Peace
offers. What a way to conclude a splendid album which is tamed more
easily than one could imagine after the few 120 seconds…

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!!
