--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
And the new Tangerine Dream is on the way!

Tangerine Dream - RECURRING DREAMS (cd) 71006
2019. contains new studio versions of classic TD tracks by the current line-up and
one reworked track by Edgar Froese..

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Emmanuel D'haeyere (part of Age) - SHADOWS BEHIND ME (cdr) 80042
This has been announced by a colleague as the new AGE but this is NOT the case!!
It is a solo album by Emmanuel that is very emotional and more ambient then
his regular AGE music, I think it is really good!!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
And a new Harald Nies is just released,

Nies, Harald - CIRCLE (cdr) 81285
Anyone who has already studied the music of Harald Nies will know that
Mr. Nies is a friend of forms. In addition to Fractal, Axial or
Torodial, there is now another mathematical form: The Circle. This
explains the title of his new album. Musically, mathematics plays no
role. Much more his music is free of everything. For Harald Nies there
seem to be no rules. In 11 pieces he celebrates his very own kind of
electronic music. Rhythmic, melodic, sequencer-based, epic, all
carried by a light but always positive melancholy and his typical
groove. Very recommendable.

I am a big fan of his music and I hope to have it in very soon!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Boddy, Ian - SPECTROSCOPIC (3-lp) 31099
There are a limited quantity of these beautiful box sets available at Groove.
Music year's out of print and never reissued by Ian him self.
With several unreleased tracks from this same time period of 1979 - 1982.
Don't wait to long as gone is really gone!!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
And the new  GR-285 - Gert Emmens - Somewhere is in stock.
A new Gert Emmens but this time of a different style of music.
http://www.groove.nl/index3.html

For 6 years Gert Emmens worked on his second progrock album Somewhere.
Compared with it's predecessor Memories, Somewhere sounds more
seventies, and all the electronic music influences that could still be
found on Memories are gone.

Gert Emmens played all the instruments himself, including acoustic drums and guitar.
Emmens is influenced by Steve Hackett, Tony Banks, Eddie Jobson and others.

You can listen to tracks on the following site and there is a track in Dreamscape radio.
http://www.gertemmens.com/

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
We have the very first cd of NEULAND (BAUMANN & HASLINGER) - NEULAND
(2CD-2019 ALBUM/EX-TANGERINE DREAM PAIR) in stock!!
there is a track in Dreamscape radio.
http://www.groove.nl/index3.html

This Double CD set contains all 15 tracks from Peter Baumann & Paul
Haslinger's NEULAND!

"Long-awaited" doesn't even begin to describe NEULAND!!!
After all, its core synth cadets (former TANGERINE DREAM members Peter
Baumann and Paul Haslinger) first work-shopped a record under a
different name (BLUE ROOM) nearly 30 years ago!

NEULAND started the way many long overdue projects do: with Paul
Haslinger and Peter Baumann asking themselves, "Why isn't there
anything out there like this?" In their case, that meant a deeply
immerssive debut album that’s respectful of their roots in TANGERINE
DREAM but exists on its own astral plane. Far more restless than most
ambient records, the pair's self-titled album is both focused and
freeing, alluding to everything from weightless grime melodies to
windswept film scores.
NEULAND is ultimately the sound of something entirely new!

gr-274 Stephan Whitlan & Ron Boots - Three Day Week

Take two musicians! Two veterans with opposing visions and lock them
in a room heated by sequencers and synthesizers with the challenge of
creating rhythms without synth solos, not even Stephan Whitlan's, and
you'll get an album like THREE DAY WEEK. The connection between the
ideas of Ron Boots and Stephan Whitlan has been proven with
Substitutes. The two musicians, backed up by Harald Van der Heijden on
drums, had been filling an hour for a crowd in waiting for the main
act with improvised music at the E-Day 2018. Whence Substitutes which
had been very well received by Ron Boots' fans, those of the Groove
label and the specialized press in EM. And it's precisely after this
last E-Day 2019 festival that the two musicians decided to revive
their ideas in another context of pure improvisation. This time, Boots
& Whitland will be focus on the sequencer aspect. And it's the fruit
of these improvisation sessions that guided the making of THREE DA Y
WEEK. Both musicians judged these parts interesting enough to be
offered to fans of the Berlin School model with Dutch and England
visions. The other parts, including the drums always performed by
Harald Van der Heijden, were added to finalize an album made in
relaxation but with the idea of exploding our speakers.

Fish starts in sweetness. Synth shadows draw arches that float in the
dark, causing particles to crumble and leaving their footprints slowly
evaporate. Tinted by mysticism, the mood begins to breathe after the
door of 5 minutes. A pulsation makes tinkle its resonances which
multiply in secret to initiate a rhythmic lift that will siege for the
next 27 minutes. Moiré arpeggios and discrete sequences, flowing like
suspended rivulets, are at the origin of this structure, which is
silently wrapped in layers of mist and by voices of an absent choir.
Tactilely exploiting Fish's minimalist approach, the Boots & Whitland
duo adds rhythmic particles that give the sound w eight to this long
title designed to receive a large inventory of sequences and
percussive elements. Among the dancing arpeggios, some have a more
harmonious level and trace these evasive melodies that adorn so well
these structures set with magnetizing loops. Fish progresses in this
setting where percussion, frolicking like a core of dragonflies frozen
in time, add to the charms of this rhythmic boom which grips its
atmospheres. Without exploding, but constantly accumulating a vigor
that will remain contained in its space-time, the passive rhythm of
Fish brings us to a final that gets emptied of its percussive
elements. And in the end, Fish is 34 minutes of a latent rhythm
growing in volume and intensity in a tubular plexiglass corridor that
is gradually widening from the inside. A bit long, but the intensity
in it makes it pass rather quickly.

My favorite is this ode to the serenity of space that is Alpaca. The
movement is celestial with 4 chords that walk quietly on the edge of a
cosmic ocean, with as a traveling companion a bass line less docile to
the idea of walking 9 minutes. These arpeggios gather in places to
blow us a nice melody that gave me the shivers at times. Especially
with these synth shadows that are like maternal caresses. More
hypnotic than minimalist, this astral procession is adorned with ether
vapors, as well as whispers and noises camouflaged by distance. I
loved it. This goes in my iPod, section; minutes to daydream and fall
asleep! I always thought of being in Alpaca's beach when the moods of
Eagle get to my ears. Its introduction is multicoloured of sonorous
textures that come and go on an oblong circular movement of the
sequencer. Acid winds, lamentations of sounds and twisted
reverberations pour into this opening that has already exhausted 11
minutes in ambiosonic and ambiospheric elements when finally, Harald
Van der Heijden comes to lend his hands to two sequencers awakening.
Eagle gets flying! Its rhythm is lively, bec a use of the drums, and
spasmodic, because of the sequencers. It's especially inviting with an
acoustic-electronic mesh whose only winner are my ears. In fact, it
lacks only synth solos to make it all perfect. What was not planned in
this THREE DAY WEEK focused on sequencers and their dimensions that
are not always rhythmic.

Despite some lengths, this latest album of Ron Boots and Stephan
Whitlan has all the assets in needed to please fans of EM. There are
three different structures that each have their own charms;
minimalist, melodious and ambient rhythms as well as quite lively with
an Eagle that breaks the house. I enjoyed its discovery a little more
with my headphones, although the mastering allows listening it on
speakers, and it filled my listening room with power and precision. A
very nice achievement from Groove nl.

29310 Tangerine Dream - Rubycon

O.K. after the spooky year of "Phaedra", this CD begins with new ebbs
and flows, thrills and chills, and spacey currents. This CD has some
kinds of instruments like analog synthesizers, Mellotron choir and
others. Thank You.

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!!
