Realtime - Journey Into Space (Remastered 2014 + Bonus)

Artist: Realtime
P: 2004 / 2014
Remastert 2014 + Bonus Track.
A gentle, high-register, mid-tempo sequence and silky analogue string pad combination rise from silence to herald the opening track 'Lost in Space'. We are very much in mid-eighties TD film soundtrack (Risky Business/Thief) territory here – but without the guitar work. Choral voices and snatches of string melody add weight. A gentle hi-hat pattern slowly builds and underpins the rhythmic throb of the pad – now we simply enjoy the journey. It's simple, traditional, but very good.
A chunky, analogue sequence opens proceedings for 'Journey Into Space'. Almost immediately a second is deployed to create a cleverly syncopated rhythm. Hi-hats are added and synths swell in the background. A beautifully dark, analogue lead gives this sequential skeleton a melodic heart. A bass throb and Mellotron strings are the final pieces in this Berlin-based jigsaw. This one really got me moving! The sequences mutate as the track continues on its glorious voyage. Various melodies come and go. Vast choirs emote. If you like the Berlin 'schule' you'll love this. The sequencer is, again, engaged from the very start for 'Cosmic Opera'. It's a rather staccato, chunky one this time. A choral drone sits beneath the pattern. Hi-hats again herald the electronic percussion. Realtime have created quite a trance-like state by the 4 minute mark, at which point snatches of a heavier rhythm are given. It becomes even more dramatic as choral 'stabs' begin to punctuate the track. Gradually the choir takes more of a melodic role and the percussion beds into the track. It's all subtly done – this lot know how to build and sustain a track. This is excellent stuff. Berlin fans prime your credit cards!
A very Vangelis synth flourish announces the arrival of yet more sequences. We have entered 'Another Dimension'. We have two sequences, one bass-laden the other a light airy one, both pretty rapid. Symphonic swells and colossal choirs, and we're only 1 min 30 seconds in! Things get even more symphonic before a sudden end.
Two sequences dance around each other, appropriately enough, for the opening to 'Dance of the Aliens'. The patterns constantly mutate, and various symphonic flourishes add harmonic interest. The sounds are totally retro and analogue – it just sounds superb! 'Chandra' closes the album. Solar flares and a string pad set the scene before a rapid but mellow sequence comes into life. A second, brighter sequence is added, just seconds before a bass pattern cements the rhythm. White-noise percussion is gradually introduced. Yet more patterns are added, along with drum 'crashes'. Then it's suddenly over.
This is a fine slice of the Berlin-school, with space music type atmospherics at times. Recommended.

Realtime - Lights of the Universe (Remastered 2014 + Bonus)

Artist: Realtime
P: 2007 / 2014
Remastered + Bonus Tracks.
The music of REALTIME moves yourself into a state of trance and relaxation just as on the new and second album "Lights Of The Universe" of this exceptional Cologne electronic project. Thomas Bock, producer and mastermind of REALTIME works with pleasure by using sequences. His musical concepts prove a unique sound which carries us outer space. This own style fascinated guest singer Thorsten Sudler-Mainz of Deep Imagination who has helped on the new REALTIME album. Thus a probably measured symbiosis from electronic music and vocals and voices has originated with the pieces "Stardancer" and "There's Nothing Like The Sun". Beside the independence of REALTIME influence and elements of the classical electronic music comes with the miraculous opener "Sunlight Reflections" unfailable to hear. In the 14-minute title track "Lights Of The Universe" modern ambient sounds with traditional endless loops … and then there is only this light the music.

Realtime - Solar Walk

Artist: Realtime
P: 2013
The new album by REALTIME, get ready for a highly dynamic work that may give old fashioned Berlin School a new definition! The fascination of outer space with its infinitive depth and unsolved questions, that mankind faced since ages inspired us as well for our new album „Solar Walk“. We want to let our audience share the soundtrip across the universe, heading for far away planets, galaxies and not yet experienced worlds (of sound) Sit back, relax, let go, enjoy floating synth-carpets, mystic choirs, or groove with us along the basslines, pulsing sequences and percussive elements. REALTIME-thats "Music From Outer Space"

Realtime - Swinging Amplitudes

Artist: Realtime
P: 2016

Swinging Amplitudes is the 6th album by REALTIME. Thomas Bock presents multifaceted EM compositions documenting his love with electronic music. With this, as well pure, sequenced tracks in the spirit of „Berlin School“ were created as well as spheric and epic tracks like from outer space. The result is an diversified and ambitious album.
Another highlight is the cooperation with Wolfgang Barkowski aka Alien Nature at the track „Psychedelic Emotions“. His synth-solo was a spontaneous and improvised contribution showing his human emotions about electronic music. As well the mastering of this track was done by Barkowski.
