An excellent compilation album of electronic music with hints of
Techno and ambient. The whole history of electronica and Krautrock is
covered in this collection, in some sense. There are so many wonderful
sound explorations on this set.

The new RAMP cd is in No sleep 'til Wilmersdorf 89978
It will ship out tomorrow but I had the pleasure to listen to it a few times and
is is fantastic, a bit lighter then his normal music but man this is fun to listen to!!

"wilmersdorf" is a bit of a journey through time and space. rather
than embarking on an imaginary flight through the vast unknown of
space, i decided to travel back in time to a place i had the privilege
to explore, taste, and experience face-to-face in my childhood days:
the city of berlin as it was in 1978 and 1979 when i spent some time
in the borough of wilmersdorf with my parents, just around the corner
from thomas kessler's original beat studio, peter baumann's paragon
studio, manuel göttsching's studio roma, michael hoenig's aura studio,
edgar froese's place, and david bowie's residence, all within walking
distance. of course i would learn about all this years later, even
though i already had a penchant for electronic music by other artists
from that era, particularly for one group from düsseldorf.
incidentally, i was living in the düsseldorfer strasse... the plot
thickens. "wilmersdorf" was recorded in a laborious process,
frequently interrupted by editing sessions and re-recording and
overdubbing selected bits. i wanted the album to be as perfect as i
had wanted "traces of the past" to be some 20 years ago. i spent a lot
of effort on getting the sound quality of that era right, the flavour
spring reverbs, tape delays, and analogue synthesisers would
inevitably have added to the final result.

79182 Piotr Krupski - Electronic Worlds

A switch ignites and "When Mother Earth was Born" settles down
comfortably between our ears with floating waves where from are born
ambient noises, even that some of them get transformed into parallel
lines. A stride of synth waves decorates a firmament of sibylline
atmospheres, courtesy of Wladyslaw Komendarek and Andrzej Mierzynski
who are members of this group of 8 friends of Piotr Krupski and whose
various talents adorn the sound decoration more than astonishing of
“Electronic Worlds”. A line of sequences escapes from this
psychotronique phase. Its loops of rhythm in series are skipping such
as the fragile dance steps of a little girl having a walk in a wood
encircled of a soundscape as intimidating as attractive. Another line
of percussive sequences, like a nervous bongo drums, skip in parallel
of the main movement which shines now with a renewed vigor a few
seconds later when "When Mother Earth was Born" reaches its paroxysm
with bongo drums which burst out under the unstable layers of an organ
which allies the progressive rock and the cosmic EM of the very
avant-gardist Poland School genre. The storm calms down with
oscillating waves which go and come to feed the symphonic heaviness of
"Racing Thoughts". Heavy, this movement is constantly tugged between
the good variations of these oscillating lines and solos which rage in
a panorama drenched of a rich and stifling sound fauna. And it's the
first stop of “Electronic Worlds”, the last discovery of the Polish
label Generator pl. which combines not less than 9 icons of the very
progressive EM of the Poland School. Although new to my ears, Piotr
Krupski possesses a solid CV on the Polish artistic scene. Son of a
famous cymbalist, Krupski has made some albums in the early 2000's
besides participating in several artistic projects. He makes a
comeback here with a very solid opus to which we enjoy as much the
ears free, as with earphones. I prefer, and by far, this last
alternative. In facts, “Electronic Worlds” is this kind of totally
unsuspected thing which hits you by surprise, so much there is
abundantly of good stuffs to be heard!
"Stellar Journey" pursues this odyssey with a storm of oscillating
waves which crumble some of its sharp particles. In spite of the
strength of the impulses of this blizzard, the movement stays of
nebulous moods with a strong volley of sound effects and mislaid
percussions which try in vain to shake this mass of lines sometimes
dark and other times ethereal. "Tales of the Electron Tube" ties to
the finale of "Stellar Journey" with a less stormy ambience but with a
shower of solos which just doesn't cease to charm. "Across Land and
Oceans" reminds me a lot the tribal and ambient music of ShaneMorris &
Mystified but with more intensity in the soundscapes. That says it
all! "The Gardens of Eden" flows of this wall of sounds with a
beautiful melodious approach which shines of gorgeous solos over a bed
of dark waves. The intensity reaches new dimensions here and with
"Sunset in Manakara" and these other numerous solos which pitches us
in the analog era of EM. "The Riddles of Life and Death" is the big
jewel of “Electronic Worlds” with its convoluted structure where a
fascinating pattern of sequences makes crawl its keys like a plethora
of millipedes fleeing a profusion of predators. This organic rhythm
has difficulty in walking on the imperfections of a rough ground
beneath an avalanche of effects and of distorted synth solos. It's the
kind of title of which we discover its charms a listening after
another listening. "Heart and Soul" ends a surprising album with a
small light at the end of the darkness. The music always stays
floating and ambiospherical with this mixture of darkness and twilight
which gives so much depth to an album worthy of the big albums from
the experimental years of EM. A territory that few explores, to say
the least in a so big commercial proportion, and that Piotr Krups k i
& Friends revisits with a great deal of dexterity. To be honest, it's
not the kind of album which goes along with unadventurous ears. On the
other hand, the audacious ones will be fill up with charms and
surprises here. A good big 4 stars for the creativity!

70274 Keller & Schonwalder & friends - Repelen Revisited

I'm always divided when I start to dig into a new album of the Repelen
Series from Broekhuis, Keller & Schönwälder along with their musical
journeymen on this project; Raughi Ebert on guitars and Thomas
Kagermann on violin and flutes. Not because it's not good, nor
interesting! The quintet explores a musical avenue which struggles
between New Age, or a kind of a very pleasant Easy Listening, and an
EM which flirts with a clearly more accessible Berlin School style.
But always, I get seduced so easily by a production without smudge
among which the mastering and the mixing allows every instrument to
seduce the most timid eardrums. Contrary to what the title can
indicate, “Repelen Revisited” is not a compilation nor an album of
remixes. It's rather a collection of titles that the quintet played or
rehearsed during the performances and/or the sessions of 2011 and
2016. Thus, it's original material which respects in every aspect the
music without borders of Broekhuis, Keller, Schönwälder, Ebert & Kagermann.
It's with Raughi Ebert's that begins "Ready for Lounge". The notes
travel from a loudspeaker to another one with a hint of Mediterranean
romance. A pulsation seizes the last breath of this first acoustic
melody, awakening the tears of a dreamy violin while riffs of keyboard
slumbers in suspension. The jingles of the percussions peck at a
structure which increases its pace while staying in its limits of
cosmic Funk and Groove so peculiar to Broekhuis, Keller & Schönwälder.
Stimulating tinklings of xylophone add a surreal touch while the
violin always cries so much. In my opinion, "Ready for Lounge" seems
to be offer to the sound journeymen BK& S so that they sharpen their
talents. "Walking Under the Moon" is more interesting with its very
Berlin School structure. The sequencer, and its very nervous keys,
skip on a Halloween theme, or yet Tubular Bells, to form these Berlin
School rhythms lively for the neurons, and the for fingers. Instead of
drawing solos, the synths stimulate good effects and ambient riffs to
deepen the soundscapes and the field of Thomas Kagermann's violin
laments. This is a very good title and I suspect that "Repelen Groove"
is inspired by it by offering a slower, a dreamier structure of Groove
as we say, to submit to our ears a bigger diversity in instruments and
other synth effects. One can hear an acoustic guitar, percussions
bongo drums, lines of flute and piano here. The solos are
hearing-illusion with a synth which shows tones of saxophone besides
forging ethereal layers where we can even hear voices with a tribal
essence as a seraphic one. Ideal for on a Sunday morning.
In fact, all of “Repelen Revisited” is even more beautiful on a
morning when the senses are amazed in front of the beauties of life
and its natures. "The Electric Chess" sounds familiar? Well, it's a
kind of tribute to the cult title of Manuel Göttsching's album E2-E4.
We jump over its psychedelic i ntroduction to dance immediately on a
kind of cosmic Groove and its clothes of ambient Funk. Raughi Ebert is
in nice shape with his guitars, as acoustic as electric, which scatter
appropriate riffs and also vapors of blues, as well as romances, while
more discreet, even more retiring than the violin, the synth is in
mode very cool saxophone. "A New Day" is a small serenade structured
on a beautiful momentum of rhythmic growth. The music is very soft and
floats through the harmonies of clarinets forged skillfully by a
synth. Discreet, the guitar is of use as melodic bed to a duel between
this clarinet, as with the lines of seraphic voices and the tears of
violins. The percussions raise the romantic intensity of this title
which livens up slowly by crumbling its seconds. Impossible to not
like this one! "Song of Life" is another title of the Berlin School
genre with a floating movement dipped into gases of ether. The
ambiences liven up gradually, binding even themselves with a rhythm
sculpted by percussions always of the Bongo kind, while the
ambiospherical décor is split between good synth solos which include
perfumes of the 70's and solos of a violin at times too present. Set
apart the synth riffs, the ambiences are decorated with the electronic
effects of the Klaus Schulze repertoire and with pretty nice Mellotron
layers. That's a title that I would have like a bit more in its purely
electronic envelope of the good analog years. At this level, "Rush
Hour" answers more my waits. Even if Thomas Kagermann's violin tries
to bring in it a folkloric touch, the rhythm shows a good swiftness
under lively percussions and riffs of hiccupping sequences. The synth
solos are what we expect of EM with their aerial pirouettes which spin
in and out in an ear-catchy electronic décor filled with sounds and
with mists which are familiar to our ears.
Always carefully presented in a six panels digipack artwork, “Repelen
Revisited” wears proudly the Manikin signature. In this sense that the
music is polished up well with an incredible precision in the tones
and where each title possesses a little something catchy. The music is
nice and very accessible with a light and lively melodious side. It's
this kind of album of which the biggest defect is that it's too easy to like…
