Bekki Williams - Edge of Human

Artist: Bekki Williams
P: 2007
The music on 'The Edge of Human' is so far typically Bekki in style; however, unlike her classic album Innersense, 'Edge' concentrates as much on the synthetic as the symphonic.
Full of rich melodies and intricate sequencing, the album is sure to delight fans of her previous releases. The UK mistress of melody that took her early inspirations from the like of Mark Shreeve and Andy Pickford - but whatever you level at Bekki Williams, the one thing that always remains paramount is that this lady can sure write a catchy tune! But, unlike the syrupy world of mediocre malady that is the commercial, film-ridden, synth fraternity, she writes tunes that have substance, strength, pace and direction. All of which is why a new album from her is immediate - there’s no “getting into it”, no “play it three or four times to see what it’s all about” - none of that.
This album sets its stall from start to finish, and that is a playing field where you’re out to have fun. From slower tunes such as the delightful light majesty of ‘First Light’ through orchestral-laden splendor in the form of ‘Where Times Collide’ to the richly expansive deceleration of ‘The Azmara Variations’, this is an album of vast, stretched-out melody-laden mini-epics and, like fellow label mate Robert Fox, she has a flair for the huge sweeping chords that cover you like a prairie wind coming down from the canyons on a summer heat.
‘Edge Of Human’ is quite orchestral sounding for the most part, occasionally more “Euro” when the sequencers come into play, but it always has a vast depth of layers and textures in abundance.
This is the musical equivalent of a meal at The Ritz, where the end result is always guaranteed satisfaction and, after too much of a good thing, the thought that some day soon, you'd love to do it all over again.

Bekki Williams - Elysian Fields Remastered

Artist: Bekki Williams
P: 1996 / 2015

This CD is a superb debut. Many of you will wonder at times "could this be one Andy Pickford in disguise?" It is certainly as good as his work, and leaves you eagerly waiting for her live appearances and future albums. It's great to hear true EM from a female in what has previously been a male dominated area. If this is anything to go by, let's have more!
Bekki Williams is a keyboard genius. Elysian Fields will calm you, elate you, make you happy and sad. These powerful sounds will send you soaring among the clouds then through myth, legend and the cosmos.
You will discover places in your inner being that you have never visited before. This is one of the best synth albums that I have heard in a long time. Fifty eight minutes of pure audio enjoyment ensuring that one listen will never be enough.
Elysian Fields was originally released on CD in 1995 but went out of print in 2013. The album was remastered in 2015 for a digital release and is now available to download and purchase on CDR with original CD booklet art.

This emotive and melodic album is a treasure trove of thematic EM/New Age based on Greek mythology. A recognized classic of the genre now remastered to sound even better! One of the USA’s leading electronic music outlets, Eurock, wrote of Elysian Fields; “This is like a breath of fresh air, not just another UK clone work. Bekki Williams brings a definite feminine sensibility into her music, making it more emotive and ornate… the music is as magical as the title implies”.

Bekki Williams - Innersense

Artist: Bekki Williams
P: 2005
Bekki Williams creates mostly symphonic-like new age music. It starts very nicely on “A Breath Away” with a Vangelis or Andy Pickford-like classic atmosphere.
From “Secret Recesses Of The Heart” onward, the music moves in the direction of being similar to Yanni’s, i.e. well-played and well-recorded romantic melodies with an orchestral background.
Sometimes, Jean Michel Jarre also greets the listener, such as on “Subliminal Sensuality” and “From The Ashes”.

Bekki Williams - Shadow of the Wind

Artist: Bekki Williams
P: 1997
"Shadow of the Wind is a masterpiece of symphonic electronic music that will remind many of the best works by the Euro Superstars Jarre and Vangelis... the level of sophistication both musically and instrumentally is stunning. It's rare that a relatively new artist comes up with anything this impressive".
"This is warm, melodic EM at its most accomplished. Bekki's style is a world away from the free-form analogue improvisations of some contemporary acts, and yet she represents what is probably the most accessible genre of EM, concentrating on melody and wide-eyed romanticism. Its potential appeal is great and she could turn out to be AD Music's first big breakthrough. Watch this space".

Various Artists - Ocean of Light

Artist: Various Artists
P: 2007
A collection of 18 melodically inspired tracks from the AD Music catalogue.
"Ocean of Light" is an excellent introduction to the artists on AD Music. The CD is primarily a compilation of previously released tracks, (although there are 2 unreleased pieces) with a coherence defined by the label's vision and style. No ambient doodling here and no sugar sweet, new age wallpaper music either.
It contains music with infectious melodies, ambient textures, cinematic tones, jazz tinged textures, dynamic soundscapes and powerful, strident themes that demonstrate the versatility and diversity of the AD stable of artists.

Ocean of Light is a superb collection which will enable you to discover astonishing artists, with complex dimensions, sometimes progressive, but always harmonious. Superb ballads like 24 AM, Beyond Paradise, Ultraviolet, Water Music, Stasis, We Rest and Postlude will bring you into the arms and caresses of Morpheus. Much of what you hear on this superb album will soothe the spirit, but it isn't relaxation music. New Berlin School with rhythmic sequences on complex structures is also well represent with Ocean of Light, Queen of Hearts, In the Arms of Morpheus, And All Shall Be Well, Ovi, Elara and Snow Paths. And there are also titles a little harder, with heavy percussions and riffs A Certain Malaise, Code14 and astonishing Ov1 by Raviv Gazit.

Various Artists - Sacred Skies

Artist: Various Artists
P: 2007
"Sacred Skies" continues our introduction to the artists on AD Music.
The CD is primarily a compilation of previously released tracks, (although there are 2 unreleased pieces) with a coherence defined by the label's vision and style. No ambient doodling here and no sugar sweet, new age wallpaper music either. "Sacred Skies" is an album of real power and emotion, a collection of rhythmic tracks highlighting the collective diversity to be found in the AD Music catalogue.
The album has a slightly darker edge than volume 1, with some ethnic influences. However, the infectious melodies, ambient textures, cinematic tones, dynamic soundscapes and powerful, strident themes remain. If you like music to be creative, to be different enough that it doesn't fall easily into a category, to have depth and purpose, then you should find the music we have to offer just what you're looking for.
Beginning with the previously unreleased 'The Plains' by Bekki Williams, in less symphonic mood, the piece reflects the increasing maturity of her music. One of the finest albums in AD's canon is Catalin Marin's 'First Breath' represented here by 'Nandana-Paradise in Indra', an ethnic tinged gem that would not sound out of place on the 'Bladerunner' soundtrack. The shimmering 'Iceberg', again echoing Vangelis at his most accessible, is equally impressive.
Robert Fox's illustrious backcatalogue is condensed to the superb 'Over Turquoise Seas' taken from his first Ad realease 'Asfafa' and the majestic 'Three Sisters'. Another previously unavailable track 'Sacred Skies' by David Wright is further incentive to buy this compilation. A slow burner, 'Sacred Skies' again reveals the lynchpin of AD Music in great form and bodes very well for his next solo album. The sublime 'Flame Sky' from 'Walking With Ghosts' and 'Taiga', an earlier favourite from 'Between Realities', does not disappoint.
'Jumping Air' from Raviv Gazit's underrated 'Shapeshifter' is the most rhythmic offering here. Code Indigo's, 'Call of the Earth', 'Fallen' and 'Code 11' remind us of the enduring quality of AD Music's supergroup. Callisto's 'Setisphere' has already become a classic from the debut release 'Signal to Stars.
Another AD favourite, Bekki Williams is further represented by 'Under The Same Sky' and 'Nightflier', both high quality offerings. Traditional cosmic synths appear on Enterphase's 'When the Morrow Breaks'. However, there is one AD music act, again criminally undervalued, that impresses here because it offers something different from the other artists. Witchcraft's 'Angel Dust' has ethereal vocals and 'Cathedral' from 'As I Hide' offers a subtley darker ambient vision of subdued menace.
All in all 'Sacred Skies' serves as a fine introduction to AD Music and an essential companion to Volume 1. First time purchasers may find that investigation of many of the source albums may be essential.

Various Artists - The First Snow

Artist: Various Artists
P: 2010
There are Christmas albums, and then there are Christmas albums. "ChristmasAD - The First Snow" is an outstanding collection of instrumental Christmas music that's appeal is that everyone is going to enjoy it!
A good Christmas album should contain some old classics plus some familiar pop titles to warm you on a cold winter evening as you sit by the fireside. So on this collection there are eight favourites, expertly re-imagined, plus eleven brand new Christmas songs that perfectly reflect the Christmas spirit.
"The Dancing Snowman" by David Wright & Geigertek is delightfully OTT and perfectly starts proceedings, and what follows is pure bliss! Steve Barnes and RamsayGee provide real romantic heart with five beautiful pieces: Steve's being the classic favourites "Little Town of Bethlehem", "Good King Wenceslas" and "God Rest ye Merry Gentlemen" and Gareth's being the sublime self penned "First Snow" and "Season's Wish". Catalin Marin returns with his epic, ethnic influenced "A Star in the East", and new artists Claudio Merlini and The Pels Syndicate contribute a stunning melodic track each with "Christmas Wonderland" and "Xmas5" respectively. Richard Bone provides two glorious covers in "Do You Hear What I Hear" and "Donde Esta Santa Claus?" while Acheloo and Robert Fox provide beautifully moody interpretations of "White Christmas" and "Silent Night". Al Rudd's "The Magic of Christmas?" provides the albums glorious "Tim Burton" influenced moment (think "A Nightmare at Christmas"!) while Lord of the Ants provides an atmospheric acoustic number that perfectly reflects "Christmas In New York". David Wright's rhythmic electronic version of "We Three Kings" and Bekki Williams beautifully orchestrated "Where is Santa?" end the album perfectly. The sound of children's laughter briefly open and close the album, reminding us perhaps that Christmas is about peace and good will reflected in the joy and laughter of innocence.
The collective artists on the label have really excelled here, presenting an emotive and memorable collection of Christmas tunes that delicately, and without exception, successfully walk the line between feel good melodic music and contemporary, creative, classically influenced new age/electronic music.
Beautifully recorded and produced, this is one classy album that is destined to run and run.
