Current - Dream Cabinet

Artist: Current
P: 2006

Most of his early releases could be found on the always reliable Norwegian Origo Sound label, but he's chosen to release The Dream Cabinet (as well as the previous Undercurrents) on his own. Whether or not this gets him more broadly heard will be difficult to ascertain; regardless, the ambient techno coarsing through the grain of The Dream Cabinet, though hardly groundbreaking, is so engaging and sumptuously crafted you could forgive Solheim for his lack of innovation. Undulating synth pads flutter beneath softly throbbing sequencers and the kinds of "antique" 80s keyboard signatures, beloved of everyone from Gary Numan to Robert Schroeder, bounce and chatter throughout.

Exquisitely crafted genre music of a particularly fetching sort, The Dream Cabinet explores willowy ambience and plush velvet rhythms with equal aplomb, the sort of record you might expect little from but which surprisingly rewards endlessly enjoyable dividends.

Current - Enter the Dream

Artist: Current
P: 1997

"Origo Sound's second Future Proof release presented a new name to the public. Enter The Dream by Current (also known as Robert Solheim) is produced by Erik Wøllo and features over an hour of melodic ambient music. Ten years after this album release, we all know that Current has grown into an important name on the international electronic music scene, having released several acclaimed albums. Current's music has been described as a "warmer" Biosphere, which is quite correct, at least on this album. Enter The Dream is the most commercial sounding album by Current on Origo Sound, and should be enjoyed by a large public.
The first track is Enter, featuring a calm melody line which becomes more uptempo during a piano theme that would make Robert Miles proud. Thoughts are flowing towards space as the tune fades out. The Dream has more of the pleasant melodies, the listener is floating in the universe but he may get a bit annoyed by the somewhat naive samples that appears. 25.6' contains a clever production, good sound and instrumentation, and the style of producer Wøllo can clearly be heard. Drum & bass rhythms, hot at the time of this release, dominates the track Spring Feather, the tune is vibrant, melodic and alive, but runs the risk of becoming a bit anonymous. The pleasant ghost of Robert Miles appears once again in Earth Surf, before O.C.T. 7 fades in with a nice and hovering melody, good rhythm programming and a fascinating element of sadness. Mere Objects is almost minimalistic with its repeating piano theme and Biosphere-like feel.
Sometimes I feel that the music had been even more interesting if a saxophone or electric guitar had found its way into the tunes, like in Entering Shadowland for instance. An experimental edge can be heard in Polar Beach, an ambient/flowing tune that sounds a bit like Jan Hammer's Russian Night. Intoxicated Dream has elements of Tangerine Dream's contemporary sound, it features great melody lines in the midst of the commercial appeal, while Science is Current's tribute to Moments In Love by Art Of Noise, with a downbeat and wondering feel.
The bottom line is that Robert Solheim appeared as a new and interesting voice on the scene in 1997 with this album. The most melodic and listenable of the three Future Proof releases, Enter The Dream *has* stood the test of time and can probably be listened to for another 10 years. Yes, some of the musical elements are a bit dated, like Miles' dream house piano, but that doesn't detract from the album as a whole."
