Hi All

I am happy to announce 3 new Groove Releases for the coming E-Day!
You can listen to 2 of the new releases in Dreamscape Radio!

GR-248 - Age - Landscapes (cd)
Landscapes by Age is One of the gems of the early 80's then released
on Vinyl. It represents for me one of the pinnacles of Belgium
Elektronic Music.. Emmanuël D haeyer and Guy Vachaudez created a
stunning warm album that will stil be embraced by many!. The
Track Symfonieën on this album still is one of my favorite EM songs of
all time.

With the re-release on CD we also have added 3 tracks from the early
era of the music of AGE. Tides is from the time that Landscapes was
made, but never released before. AGE in concert is from the unique
KLEM cassette from 1986, a fantastic track that builds from very small
to an epic end! And as far as I can check AGE in concert 2 was never
released before.

Composed By, Performer – Emmanuël D haeyer, Guy Vachaudez
Drums, Percussion – Marc Vachaudez

GR-247 - Skoulaman - Next Step in Evolution (cd)
Hans van Kroonenburg a.k.a Skoulaman, started experimenting with
electronic music in the late 70's after encountering the music from
artists like Vangelis, TD, JMJ, Kraftwerk and many others. Being
fascinated by the music, and as a curious person Skoulaman wondered
how all these sounds were created and soon bought his first keyboard,
a Solina electronic organ, to find out. Slowly more synthesizers and
effects were added to the collection, which until today fill up his
cozy home studio.

This being the first Skoulaman album that's being released under the
Groove label, makes it a special occasion. Also the recording process
was a bit more special than usually. Where normally a track would be
created completely spontaneous during the moment of recording, this
time a more structured approach was needed to be able to reproduce the
songs during live performances. The fact that Skoulaman plays his
songs completely live without backing track or computer, made it even
more challenging.

On all the tracks the arpeggiator of the Moog Little Phatty was used
as a base sequencing pattern. On some songs sounds recorded in nature
were added to the intro (birds from a forest in Boschoord Netherlands
/ Evening atmosphere Monopoly Italy / and streaming water in Wilnis,
the town where I live). As always reverbs and echoes play a big part
in Skoulamans sounds. On 2 tracks Skoulamans son, Rik van Kroonenburg
plays electric guitar to beef up the sound.

The title 'Next steps in evolution' is chosen because of the constant
evolution of Skoulamans music. Creating an album under the Groove
Label creates a great step in this evolution.

And last but not least.

47454 Lensflare - La Valle dell Inferno

What!? There are still new musicians who revisit the Berlin School
style of the former days? Yep! And on this one, I owe this discovery
to my friend Piero (Alluste) who put me in touch with Andrea Lensflare
Debbi, an Italian musician who counts already 5 albums inspired by
Klaus Schulze and by Tangerine Dream with a suspicion of Baffo Banfi.
Nothing less! Possible make something new out of something old? Even
if the link of influence is easy to recognize, the music of Lensflare,
to say the least on “La Valle dell'Inferno”, is a mixture of two eras
with their very different aromas .
"Acropoli" begins with breezes which undulate while whistling. Effects
of reverberating drones and more shaded breezes invite each other in
this very ambiospherical opening where tinkle some shyly arpeggios
which have this shape of suspended carillons and which are watchers of
winds. This kind of introduction full of electronic nebulosity
decorates the 4 titles of this album. And here, it's the prelude to
spasmodic sequences which skip with a profound harmonious intensity
under the multiple caresses of these winds sculpted in the secrets of
synthesizers. The effects are intense and keep the rhythmic embryo in
a trajectory smothered by these effects and which make of "Acropoli" a
monument of a bit dramatic ambiences where roams a specter of rhythm
which aims to be more insistent at the end of its course. "Il Tempio
della Sibilla" follows with an abyssal introduction. The envelope of
an organ adds a chthonian dimension to this dark opening nevertheless
flooded by the heat of synth solos as well psychedelic than acrobatic.
A bass pulsation extricates itself after the 4 minutes from this sound
magma. And these distraught kicks structure a rhythm without a real
direction and which moderates its enthusiasm under an avalanche of
anesthetic layers and of others of which the soft savors of the 70's
empty their fragrances in a vintage and a contem p orary
confrontation. The rhythm inhales of its convulsions sometimes grouped
and sometimes solitary in this ambient tumult with a creative synth at
the level of its layers of sibylline mists very TD of the Phaedra
years, of its harmonious but always acrobatic shapeless soloes and of
its effects which free a fauna a bit psychedelic. Let's say that it
isn't with "Il Tempio della Sibilla" that we get into the music of the
Italian synthesist. "Grande Cascata" will help for sure!
After an introduction decorated of chloroformed layers, of chthonian
voices effects, of electronic effects and of multiple hummings, a
series of chords try to introduce something. These chords are taken
back by an organ, whereas the rhythmic landscape gets out quietly of
its hibernation. The duel between these abscond vibes and a rhythm
knotted by jolts persists until the explosion of a nervous line of
sequences. These sequences dance with organic shadows before running
away with a fluidity which equals the good movements of the Dream in
the Encore years. Very good with one finale which tries to return to
its origins. Well balanced over its 8 minutes, "La Grotta delle
Sirene" is the most beautiful title of “La Valle dell'Inferno”. The
intro collapses under wonderful chants of the Mellotron. Effects but
also the harmonies from the Mellotron and the synth which remind to us
the best sound of Tangerine Dream in the 70's. Floating and dreamy,
the introduction remains nevertheless more musical here than on the
first 3 titles of the album. And when the rhythm emerges, it's by
ample oscillations which espouse the moods drawn from this splendid
very Froese synth. A little jewel my friends which glitters of this
music of the 70's where it was necessary to tame the ambiences before
savoring a music, in spite of its distances with what was made at that
time, which always ended by surprising before seducing.
