Ron Boots - Backgrounds

Artist: Ron Boots
P: 1994

On this album a great selection of (remixed and upgraded) tracks can be heard which were all taken from his earlier cassettes. Most tracks are inspired by books like Tolkien and Stephen King which gives the whole album a very visual and/or dreamy touch.
According to Ron this CD was the hardest to make. A lot of the original synthesizers were sold so he had to re-create the original feeling with new synths. And as every musician knows: That's Hard!.

Ron Boots - Close, But Not Touching

Artist: Ron Boots
P: 2000

Hearing the first notes of the title track it is not hard to hear Ron’ recognizable signature: innovative rhythms, great sequences nice solos and a lot of room for the finest sounds around. "Save It For A Rainy Day" shows the melodically side of Ron, almost like symphonic rock. In the epic “Well! So What?” (with 18:25 minutes one of the longest tracks he has ever recorded) Harold van der Heijden plays drums in the middle part. “Well! So What?” gives us some of the best Boots-sequences ever. “Giants Of Once Before” is a live recording from the Gruga Park in Essen, Germany of Ron together with his friends Harold van der Heijden and Kees Aerts. It is a rather melancholically piece with a driven solo. And then, to conclude this great album, there is “Au Revoir”. This is French for “goodbye”. Lets hope this great sequencer-track with a soft vocal in the background is really a goodbye to a hopefully quick new rendezvous (again, French!) with the wonderful music of Ron Boots.
“Close, But Not Touching” really sets new standards in melodically electronic music.

Ron Boots - Current

Artist: Ron Boots
P: 1997

This album was created between October '96 and July '97.
All songs composed by Ron Boots except Close Call; drums by Harold van der Heijden .
Vocals on Close Call by Ron Boots
“Let the Dream continue…”. These words are written by Ron Boots in the booklet of “Current”, his 1997-album and his tenth anniversary of releasing music (of course, he was already making music much longer, as was later proved on his “80’s Box”).
“Current” was an important album for the Dutchman. It came as a follow-up of some rather successful albums and can perhaps be regarded as a “warm-up” for his brilliant album “Tainted Bare Skin” from 1998. Now, again ten years later, “Current” has been carefully remastered by Ron and re-released.
“Current” is a solo-album in the true sense of the word. Where on many other albums Ron is accompanied by guest-musicians, he works alone on “Current”. The only exception are the drums on “Close Call” which are played by Harold van der Heijden. Two things play an important part on “Current”. First of all, the sequences; they are beautifully crafted and long-stretched.
This can already be heard in the masterful opening track “Current part 1” and “Below Paradise (Current part 2)”. The second thing is that Ron experiments some more with rhythms, new sounds and atmospheres.
Rhythm is quite essential in “Ambiguity”, “Close Call” (in which Ron’s voice also can be heard) and “Smiles”. “Alignment” and “Reciprocal” are all about atmosphere and intense warmth.

Ron Boots - Ghost of a Mist

Artist: Ron Boots
P: 1991

Mystical, atmospheric soundscapes.
On his 2nd CD Ron worked together with Klaus Hoffmann-Hoock, founder of the German band Mind over Matter. The overall atmosphere is dreamy but the dynamic album closing Desert Clouds really puts you back on your feet!

Besides offering a more primal glimpse into Boots' music, this release delivers a softer side of Boots' electronic styling. The compositions are moodier here, more rooted in the ambience of Steve Roach or Michael Stearns than the powerful epics of Boots' more recent works. And yet, Boots introduces his own elegance to these atmospheric soundscapes, injecting subtle power to this peaceful sonic domain.
The first version once was released at the Cue-Records label.

Sankt Otten - Wunden gibt es immer wieder

Artist: Sankt Otten
P: 2008
From the opening track of 'Wunden gibt es immer wieder' Sankt Otten make their intentions known. Stephan Otten..s echoing rhodes piano falls over golden drones as Oliver Klemm drapes his elegant trademark guitar through the track like a neon waterfall. The album represents a marked progression from the bands earlier output. It draws upon the heart of their previous forays into dark melancholic trip hop yet discards the form. In doing so the band have managed to present a musical vision that is even more epic, cinematic and noirish and distinctly their own.
Over its eleven instrumental tracks the album presents such an immensely crafted and expansive landscape. From the buzzing twilight halo of 'Taschensymphonie', the magisterial lament of the title track and the urgent, dramatic ambience of 'Der Groove des guten Gewissens' 'Wunden gibt es immer wieder' is a slow burning, intensely orchestrated piece of maximalist minimalism. The albums hypnotic melancholia is undeniable as it turns lost moments into cinematic anthems.. This is music made for film made for music and an album only Sankt Otten could make. 'Wunden gibt es immer wieder' is the follow up to the immensely successful and critically praised 'Wir koennen ja Freunde bleiben'.

Sayer - 1st Encounter

Artist: Sayer
P: 2003
The first album by Sayer is a rhythmic/ melodic extravaganza filled with colorful melodic hooks and crisp sequential riffs. There are cosmic symphonic moment interwoven into the mix, but by and large it’s a non-stop dose of motorik perfect for space cruising on the Autobahn. Your head will be spinning and your feet tapping when this is in the player.

Schönwälder - Eye Of The Chameleon

Artist: Schönwälder 
P: 1989 / 1992

Originally recorded November 1988 - May 1989 at Orpheus Studio Berlin Composed, arranged and produced by Mario Schönwälder
Track 4 recorded live at the Berlin Planetary on 7th January 1989.
´The Eye Of The Chameleon´ is Mario Schönwälder´s 1st CD, released on Musique Intemporelle in 1989, re-released on Manikin Records in 1992.
In particular, the excellent title track is very typical late 1970s Schulze style. The bell-like sequences, the basses, the solos, and the overall atmosphere evidence this. It could be a track from “The Historic Edition”.

Schönwälder - Solotrip

Artist: Schönwälder 
P: 1996
His debut CD .

A collection of new tracks from the late 80s and early 90s, combined with some pieces recorded this year. 'Trance-Mission-Fluid' combines some steady sequences and rhythms with a variety of motifs. Neat and tidy with good production, but rather bland. 'Journey Into Mystery' improves things though, sounding like unsequenced AirSculpture - and listen out for the bass drum! 'With Love from Us to You' was recorded in 1994 at Berlin Planetarium with fellow EMists Broekhuis & Keller. Some good moments, and I'm sure it went down well with the visuals.
Back to 1987 for 'Aus einier anderen Zeit', a floating/ freeform piece with some interesting effects and noises. The 16 minute title track explores more commercial territory, especially the second half which features an uptempo­almost ambient­beat and some excellent synth motifs.
'Thrust or Fiction' is a short but impressive atmospheric piece, while 'Sems ú kanar' contains some strong sequenced sections but does go on a bit.
'Zerstückelte Freiheit im Großformat' ends interestingly but is nothing extraordinary. And really this sums up the whole album.

Senor Coconut - Smoke on the Water

Artist: Atom Senor Coconut
P 200
4
Uwe Schmidt (who goes by many monikers including "Atom" and "Atom Heart") is a German musician, composer, and producer known for peculiar dabblings in Latin, electro, and heavy metal, frequently blending multiple genres in a single recording. Here he takes on a hard rock classic, "Smoke on the Water," made famous by Deep Purple after watching a casino burn down during a Frank Zappa concert in Switzerland. This is an iconic song that is hard for anyone but Deep Purple (Mark II, with Ian Gillan and Ritchie Blackmore) to pull off.
By diverging totally from the stylistic trappings of the original, Señor Coconut manages a completely new take on the classic. It isn't at all derivative, but is amusing and lighthearted, and is much to my liking. The CD contains three different versions of the song, of which my clear favorite is the "Single Version" which is great and salsa-tinged. The other two versions are far more representative of Schmidt's electro-dance roots. The "King Britt Funke Mix" at over ten minutes is a bit excessive even for dedicated fans of the root material such as myself, while the "Sieg Über Die Sonne Remix" is a less unruly dance cover that's still weird, but modestly enjoyable.
