[Groove] E-News 1249 1st August 2021
 
Hello everybody.

Since i started my new job in April things have changed a bit, I am now working about 30 hours a week in that new job and i really enjoy it. But this means that at times there is less time to attened to Groove. As I am still finding my rythm be asured that Groove Unlimited as a label will keep one of my major focusses.

We have some great new release planned from September on,
A great release by "Paul Nagle" with "Matt Howard" made a great combi of art and Music.
A new release by French Artist "Awenson" and a fantastic new release by "Martin Peters" (this will be a stunning release).
Part 2 of the "Paul Ellis" release "Panorama". And hopefully later this year around E-Live a new release by "Unisphere".

Things to look out for!!
 
Grillfest-aktuell - 21. August 2021 / Glanemannschen Hof in Ahlen Germany

It is still possible that this could be ancelled but it looks like this will be the first "real live" fesival that will take place in our scene since Covid started! So fingers crossed!!

Here some special extra news from Schallwelle.

We were able to win the Hanseatic duo "Martha Rabbit" (Michael J.J. Allert and Wolfgang Rohdenburg from Bremen) for their 1st gig outside of the Hanseatic city.

Furthermore, Tonal Assembly (aka. Dr. Taede Smedes, Nijmegen, NL) has agreed to delight us with his live music on this day.

And since all good things come in THREE, Ron Boots (Best, NL) will also give his best and (hopefully not only) make the grilled sausages tremble. (www.groove.nl)

The fourth item on the program is the release of “schallplatte 24”. I don't know if I already mentioned that this time it was a double album ... The musicians and the schallwende e.V. didn’t mess up in the Corona times ...

But don't worry, if you can't or don't want to come to the grill party as a sound turner, the “sp24” will then be delivered “free of charge” afterwards. So please wait until the postman rings twice ...
In addition, there are also CD stands again where you can have a good time ...

And again Groove will have some extra copies for those who would like this release more news on this next week!!

I think and hope that August 21st will definitely be a wonderful sounding day. Please, please keep your fingers crossed and defy Corona! Until then, I'm really looking forward to you!

29189 Fanger & Schonwalder - Analog Overdose 6 - feat.LÜÜL

It must be the first time that we find 12 tracks in a single album of less than 77 minutes from Fanger & Schönwälder. It's also the first time that the Berlin duo moves away from the Berlin School model to embrace the multiple possibilities of Electronic Dance Music (EDM). And I would go further and write that ANALOG OVERDOSE 6 is a very nice solo album by Lutz Graf-Ulbrich (aka Lüül) with the participation of Fanger & Schönwälder to well surround the different excursions of his six-string. I know this is not the case! But it's just like if Lüül wanted to be an incarnation of Manuel Gottsching on AO6.

And it doesn't take long before we enjoy the wonderful musical effluvia of @shra with Oberbaumbrücke. The rhythm is edgy with a pairing of percussions and sequences bouncing in a horizontal line on a conveyor belt and a delightful bass with elastic chords played by Thomas Fanger. Lutz Graf-Ulbrich makes little or no concession to Mario Schon walder's synthesizer. His guitar knits solos and harmonies on this long cosmic disco structure where the interest still persists at the dawn of the 8th minute. Kosmischer Kiez 3:45 Uhr follows with a short atmospheric interlude that precedes Görlitzer Park and its techno-rock vision arching over a deliciously hungry bass. The floating guitar riffs are not only confronted with the mmoumpff of this bass, but also with the percussion that structures this solid rhythm. The floating guitar riffs are not only confronted with the mmoumpff of this bass, but also with the percussion that structures this solid rhythm. Lüül's plucked harmonies have an Asian flavor while some of the percussive effects sound like the best of Señor Coconut playing xylophone on a row of semi-empty bottles. Dreamy, Mario scatters his keyboard chords that retain their luster in a structure not made for it! Eichkamp comes in with a very @shra structure, Tropical Heat period, with Lutz Graf-Ulbrich taking all the spa c e. His guitar is incredibly divine on this track. Tränenpalast is a good ballad well sculpted by a guitar always precise in its electric attacks on a disco rhythm.

Sternentor is another meditative track that brings us to the very Teutonic and vicious rock of Sportmolle. The percussions are in rock mode, while the bass spits its organic venom in a Cosmic Country Rock structure. There is a passage where the solos have a saxophone hint, too realistic to belong to the electric six-string. The acoustic guitar is superb with its Mark Knopfler tones and the reverb effects in the looped riffs take us into the world of Jimmy Page. These effects push a shimmering harmony in the six-string of Lüül who unties his Latin roots, as well as those even closer to a space Country Rock with the brief interventions of quite harmonious cosmic phases. An excellent rock in AO6! Nachtbus offers a good minimalist rhythm inspired by the circular rocks of Neu! and Michael Rother. This one too is very good ! We stay in the repetitive music frameworks with Hinterhoff, a more electronic track living on a bed teeming with rhythmic material that carries the synthesizer's ambience and harmonies away from any form of rhythmic explosions. I can hear those restless aboriginal percussions texture that close the A-side of Mike Oldfield's Ommadawn. Teufelsberg takes root in the reverberations of sound effects more electronic than cosmic. A shadow stretches its presence in a swirling effect like a big kaleidoscopic spiral that tries to suck us towards the Cosmos. This field of radioactive oscillations plays on its nuances and the organic vision of the circular loops propelled by stroboscopic effects. We are in a big psychotronic rock where neurons travel better than our feet. We stay in the vast cosmic spaces with Entlastungsstrasse, whose structure makes me think of the brilliant Schöneberg of Analog Overdose 5. This big cosmic rock, directly descended from aboriginal trance rhythms, is support e d by an impeccable work of the sequencer and a resonant bass line. The structure is minimalist and spreads its more than 13 minutes so that the synth and the guitar lay down their ability as much to texture atmospheric elements as harmonious loops and sometimes without harmonic goals. The percussions are always as solid and will propose explosions more towards the finale, breaking the myth of the redundancy of the long minimalist structures. Endhaltestelle ends ANALOG OVERDOSE 6 with guitar reverb effects that fill the structure whose foundations shudder at such musical heaviness. I believe that AO6 should have ended after Entlastungsstrasse. My opinion who doesn't take away any credit from this last album of Fanger & Schönwälder which is superior to AO5 and possibly the best since Analog Overdose 4.
