Brilliant stuff of lonely tracks and many unreleaed material on CD for the first time. If you like sequences in the late 70s style or like Hoenigs Departure from the Northern Wastelands, this is the right choice.

Free System Projekt - Impulse

Artists: Free System Projekt
P: 1996
What we have here is Free System Project's first ever album, when it was all down to Marcel Engels (Ruud Heij and Frank van der Wel not joining until the third album). It was recorded between June and August 1996.

All the tracks are prefixed 'Impulse' and 'The Closening' features upbeat sequencing and genuinely strong melodic themes. The track lasts almost 10 minutes, the first 7 dominated by electronic rhythms and searing synths. Then the mood changes as poignant chords are overlaid by piano refrains underlining the versatility available here.

Free System Projekt - Narrow Lane

Artists: Free System Projekt
P: 2008

Wonderful deep dark drones, like some alien craft coming in to land, are juxtapositioned by soft eerie Mellotron. This would have felt right at home on Tangerine Dream's 'Sorcerer' album. Atmospheric starts are nothing new to a Berlin School style track but this really is top draw stuff which sets us up nicely for the absolutely astonishingly awesome Rubycon style sequence.
Members: Marcel Engels, Ruud Heij (2002-present), Frank van der Wel (2002-07)

Contains live recordings of the National Space Centre concert on June 10th 2006 and the Hampshire Jam Festival on October 20th 2007.

Free System Projekt - Okefenokee Dreams

Artists:  Free System Projekt & Dave Brewer
P: 2000
In April 2000, the first Okefenokee gathering of Tangerine Dream fans took place to spawn the celebration of electronic swamp music. This sound derives its deepest roots in Tangerine Dream's "Stratosfear" release from 1976. For many Americans, this was their first exposure to T-Dream's music, brought about by the band's Encore tour of North America in 1976.
Far more than just the USA were heavily influenced by this sequencer-heavy haunting sound; this style survives today, flourishing in many international corners of the globe.During the gathering, Dutchman Marcel Engels and American Dave Brewer gave a live concert to bear testimony to the evolution of this electronic swamp legacy. This CD features 72 minutes of their performance.
Expect delicate keyboard loops, accreting toward critical mass amid clouds of drifting ambience. Dense application of heavenly Mellotron generate a truly retro air to the swamp. Enter some surging sequencers and you have entered electronic heaven.
There is no need for E-perc in this tune age, for the synthesizer rhythms are profuse enough to thrill any electronic audiophile into ecstasy.

Pollard, Daniel + Booth - Volume 2

Artist: Pollard, Daniel & Booth
P: 2010
The epic Pollard / Daniel / Booth / Ramsey / FSP concert from Hampshire Jam 8.
Oceans of mellotron and walls of modular.
‘Hampshire 1’ commences with fizzing, twittering effects which act as an intro for two different Heavenly Mellotron lines. Close on their heals enters a rapid tinkling sequence. A second heavy bass sequence joins it and we are soon belting along at break neck speed, the foundations shaking as we go. Electric guitar touches heighten the excitement still further. What an incredible opener!
After whooshing atmospherics and beautiful ethereal effects ‘Hampshire 2’ continues its slow exquisite build up with a lonesome synth flute lead. When the first sequence does arrive it is again of the rapid high register variety. The second sequence falls into formation with the first perfectly. A third, deeper sequence, joins in the fun and we are soon bathed in a sea of pulsations. Pure Berlin School heaven. The sequences evolve like living entities and the guitar, though used sensitively and never above the middle of the mix, adds even more oomph.
‘Hampshire 3’ grabs the attention right from the opening few seconds with sonic blasts and Mellotron. We then follow the winning formula outlined in the previous two numbers. A sequence emerges, which is again first rate, topped off perfectly by a sensitive flute lead line. The sequence morphs wonderfully, little guitar touches making brief but most welcome appearances.
The sequencer is fired up right from the first second for ‘Hampshire 4 (Encore 1)’ and the trons, taking the lead role this time, have never sounded better. Edgar Froese style guitar tops things off perfectly. The audience demands more and sonic screeches get ‘Hampshire 5 (Encore 2)’ underway. Soothing Mellotron softens things a little until the sequences burst forth once more and proceed to give fans of Berlin School music exactly what they want.

V/A - Beyond Me

Artist: Vidna Obamana, Steve Roach,
Thom Brennan

P: 2001
The sleevenotes read like a veritable "who's who" of current synth artists: Paul Ellis, Nemesis, Free System Projekt, Robert Carty, Rudy Adrian, Kubusschnitt, Dave Fulton, Synthetic Block, Paul Nagle, Arcane, John Christian (from AirSculpture) and Ramp. This project was borne from the internet chat group "beyond_em", a thriving source of news, information and general gossip which has hundreds of subscribers, including the artists here and many more. As Paul Ellis, the co-ordinator and "guy to blame", as he describes himself, says on the sleeve ".....I was surprised by the number of other musos on the list and the high quality of their work. I threw out an idea where one musician would pick up the musical thread of the previous musician and make an album that way......"
'Beyond Me' is the result, a virtual embarrassment of riches. There is so much tempting music on this album you really won't know where to start. The majority of tracks are new, only the Arcane piece has appeared previously on the 'Alterstill' CDR, and Paul Nagle's track has appeared in remixed form on 'Blue Book'. Just before I dive into the tracks, one mention for the sleeve graphics especially the inside cover featuring cartoon cameos of all the artists - it's very cleverly done.
Fittingly Paul Ellis gets the show on the road with a fantastic piece called 'Into the Liquid Unknown' (8.19). It features magnificent sequence contortions which are sometimes left to twist and mutate in isolation, at other times accompanied by perfectly judged silken pads. Next up is 'Nemesis' with 'Siloportem'(7.25). A punchy beat underpins expert sequencing and some classic mellotron sounds. Again it's a top notch synth outing, and blends perfectly with the former piece, and the next track for that matter - 'Pharos' (5.27) from 'Free System Projekt. This really does bring to mind mid 70's EM with mellotron timbres painting a patchwork of sound which could be straight from 'Phaedra'. Half way through the piece those trademark FSP pulsations start up and we are on another roller coaster of rampant moog style sequences and epic synth textures.
Robert Carty contributes 'Outside Influences' (5.10) which opens with strange alien utterings before a slow but mammoth beat appears around which all manner or electronic detail is layered. It sounds slightly tribal, Aztec culture comes to mind, such as the more atmospheric work of Richard Burmer. Next it's Rudy Adrian with 'Secrets in Sahara Sands' (6.42) which carries on the atmosphere and style perfectly, yet stamps a very different interpretation with a choppy sequence and ethereal synth layers. Kubusschnitt's 'Vantage Trick' (6.18) will surprise (and disappoint) no-one, being a classic slab of retro sequencing with electric guitar angst pitched perfectly in the mix. Dave Fulton's 'Falling Away' (5.32) takes the baton, a strangely beguiling collection of electronic throbs and drones while 'Flash of Attention' (1.45) by Synthetic Block is a brief but perfectly formed cameo which features syncopating oscillations.
Paul Nagle's 'Adventure' (8.37) opens with a marvellous arpeggiating sequence and an infectious melody. John Hickey contributes foreboding words before "the cave closes" to allow Arcane's 'Alterstill part 3' (6.00) to be unleashed. If by some twist of fate you haven't got this track, the situation needs to be rectified immediately. First aired at Jodrell Bank, this is possibly the only track which has ever left myself and Dave Law speechless at the same time.'Heathkit Interociter' (4.12) by John Christian is a fascinating and quite unique sequence based track - wonderfully inventive in construction, very melodic and hugely entertaining. Finally Ramp serve up 'Rapture of the Deep' (6.21) and this has to be heard to be believed - atmospherics from the Gods.What an album! No matter what your taste in EM this has it all, in one cohesive high quality package. Buy without hesitation. (GG)
