Hi All

Cool TD news,
Tangerine Dream - PILOTS OF THE PURPLE TWILIGHT (10-cd) 22693

Tangerine Dream follow up their superb In Search of Hades box set with
another Virgin-era package. Pilots of the Purple Twilight: The Virgin
Recordings 1980-1983 showcases the next chapter and features newly
remastered versions of the albums Tangram, Thief, Exit, White Eagle,
Logos, Hyperborea along with the previously unreleased soundtracks.

The soundtracks are for the films The Soldier, the 1982 movie directed
by James Glickenhaus and The Keep from the 1983 movie directed by
Michael Mann. All audio has been re-mastered from the original master
tapes by Ben Wiseman.

Pilots of Purple Twilight also features additional previously
unreleased material across four discs, including the full concert at
The Dominion Theatre, London in November 1982.

In addition to this the soundtrack to Thief includes an extended
promotional only version of ‘Dr. Destructo’, White Eagle features six
bonus tracks recorded for the German television crime drama series
Tatort (originally released on a 12-inch single and a seven-inch
single in Germany only), all of which are released for the first time
on CD and digitally.

Finally, Hyperborea includes five bonus tracks originally issued on
the Virgin soundtrack LP for the movie Risky Business, including
Tangerine Dream’s biggest streaming track, Love On A Real Train.

The packaging is pleasingly consistent with the previous set and comes
with a hardcover book with a new essay and many rare photographs and

Tangerine Dream - TYGER (RSD) (lp) 35439
Tangerine Dream - PHAEDRA RSD 2020 (2-lp) 36156

We get a few of the special Record Store Day LP's in.
Virgin EMI is releasing a special version of Tangerine Dream‘s classic
album Phaedra for Record Store Day 2020.

Phaedra was Tangerine Dream’s first release after signing to Richard
Branson’s Virgin Records label.

The album was recorded at the Manor, the studio inside a manor house
in Shipton-on-Cherwell in Oxfordshire, England, which was already
celebrated by early 1974 as the location in which Mike Oldfield had
created Tubular Bells. Phaedra was produced by Tangerine Dream founder
Edgar Froese, who also painted the image on the album cover.

The original was released on February 20, 1974. The re-release
features remastered audio, from from 2019’s box set In Search Of
Hades. The second LP of the set features bonus tracks from the Phaedra
sessions. The release is pressed on 180g tangerine colored vinyl.

Record Store Day 2020 has been postponed from April 18, 2020 to June
20th, as a result of the Coronavirus Pandemic.

And a new release in the tone science series.

V/A - Tone Science Module No.4 Form and Function (digipak) (cd)

  • Setting Sun by Batchas [7:42]
  • Eternal Terrarium by Lightbath [6:40]
  • Dream Portal by Panic Girl [5:20]
  • Astral Plane by Andrew Huang [5:16]
  • Blackstone Edge by Stefan Bojczuk [6:31]
  • Different Paces by Ebcidic [6:33]
  • Elements of Medical by Steve Davis [7:42]
  • ex Machina by Mattia Cupelli [7:44]
  • Myrdet av Gud by Tim Held [9:14]
Tone Science sub-label, from DiN records, continues to explore the
world of modular synth music.

Following the success and critical acclaim of the first three Tone
Science compilation albums, DiN label boss Ian Boddy has collated
another nine tracks from musicians of varying backgrounds working in
the realms of modular synthesis.

One of the challenges for Boddy in compiling the Tone Science albums
is to get the track order flowing to reveal a musical structure.
There’s a certain amount of serendipity in this but for Tone Science
V4 the shape of the album became very obvious early on. Opening with
the beautiful abstract forms created on a vintage Paperface Serge
system by Batchas the next two tracks feature gentle shimmering &
undulating sequencer patterns from Lightbath & Panic Girl that instil
a sense of calm & wonder.

This leads us to the middle section of the album where first Andrew
Huang gently slows down proceedings with harmonic abstract patterns
before Stefan Bojczuk twists the mood with a stark, moody atmosphere
conjuring up images of the isolated landscape referenced in the title
of his track, Blackstone Edge.

Things start to climb up to the sonic climax of the album with first
Ebcidic providing a dark & dangerous pulsing sequence followed by a
crazy psychedelic melange of a track from the inimitable Steve Davis.
This is followed by a sledge hammer of audio from Mattia Cupelli with
huge gnarly bass & TNT percussion from which there seems to be no escape.

After such an astonishing climax the longest track on the album by Tim
Held at first appears to mirror the distorted tones of the previous
track before a sense of calm ensues and the album finishes with a
final long, beautiful breath.

“Tone Science Module No.4 Form and Function” continues the journey
down the rabbit hole of possibilities and sound worlds inhabited by
artists and musicians working in this ever fascinating and varied
musical field.

89978 Ramp - No sleep

It took me almost ages before Stephen Parsick aka ['ramp] landed on my
radars and as I already have mentioned somewhere, I still feel really
ashamed of this mistake. Fortunately, since summer 2017 I stay deeply
focused on this German virtuoso of profoundly nebulous and vigorously
sequenced insignias. The end of August 2017 also marked a big return
of ['ramp] with "Synchronize Or Die" CD, after 5 years of silence. Its
follow-up "No Sleep 'Til Wilmersdorf" is out since May 2018 in a
limited edition of 222 copies on Stephen's Doombient Music label.

The album is a journey back to the childhood days in the late 1970s,
when Stephen Parsick lived in Wilmersdorf with his parents, at that
time a village near Berlin. These memories are precisely displayed
also by a 12-page front insert (designed by Bernhard Wöstheinrich).
11-plus minutes long "Compact Phasing A" unlocks this strikingly
attractive ride with intensely evocative arrangements, lan guidly
meandering and introspectively narrating. Beauty! "No Sleep 'Til
Wilmersdorf", the title composition clocking to nearly 17-minute mark,
swiftly shifts into hauntingly elevated sequencer realms, where
persistently pulsing signatures commingle with sinuously reflective
traces. Soulfully kicking Berlin School reminiscences at its most
hypnotic!!! The next piece, "Clouds Should Say", as indicated by its
title, moves into serenely floating spheres persistently permeated by
remotely ambiguous meridians and intangibly glimmering traceries.
8-minute "Haunted Hills" quickly returns to vividly textured sonic
blissfulness, propelled by mesmerizingly sparkling sequences bridged
with picturesquely evocative cascades. Perpetually oscillating and
euphoniously magnificent performance showcasing ['ramp] at the very
top of his musicianship!!! Bravo, Stephen, this is a Hall of Fame
composition!!! "Salomon's Road" attracts with its joyful scenario,
where pulsing vintage glitters relentlessly ju x tapose with
euphorically traversing storytelling. Another strikingly melodious
masterpiece! "Oedipus" directly dives into enigmatically subterranean
domains and nearly 11 minutes long "Orphelia" safely keeps venturing
through these terrains, although reinforced by resistantly curlicue
helixes. "The Last One To Leave Is To Turn Off The Lights" closes the
album in gorgeously serene solitude.

76-minute "No Sleep 'Til Wilmersdorf" needs to be explored and
celebrated for its outstanding artistry, where a lush array of retro
Berlin-School ingredients and sinuously darker time-lapses ignite an
all-inclusive ride driven by unmistakably earmarking arrangements of
its solitary spirit. A headphone listening is highly recommended for a
fully rewarding sonic pleasure!!! "No Sleep 'Til Wilmersdorf" album
ranks among many of my fave ['ramp]'s and Stephen Parsick's gems
including "Oughtibridge", "Return", "Ceasing To Exist" (with Markus
Reuter), "Synchronize Or Die", "Cambrium: Music For P rotozoa" or
"Hoellenengel" for example. Big applaud for ['ramp]!!!

gr-286 Walter Christian Rothe - Secrets

What a beautiful album from Walter Christian Rothe! SECRETS is a
collection of titles that should be listened to as a concept album,
without it being one. The Belgian musician delves into his memories of
a composer with moments that he considers more intense as sometimes
more serene. This music on the art of composing spans memories
collected in a period of more than 20 years. According to this quest,
we must find here the extremes of his music which caresses strong
moments of nostalgia, like experimental phases without forgetting the
dramas he slept on his keyboards.
And always as sarcastic, he begins this collection with the
thunderstorm in 19 seconds of Thunder. It is also the opening of
African Hunt, and we believe in it with its nervous rhythm which has
only of Africa, these African chants flowing on a spasmodic flow of
the sequencer. The explosions in the crash of symphonic percussions
add a dramatic effect, which does in Vangelis, in an electronic rock
structure which becomes a little more tribal in the second part. And
this part is totally boosted with a mesh of jerky orchestrations and
short synth solos in a rhythm unified by a line of sequences and
another one of arpeggios rolling unevenly on the irregularity of a
conveyor. By the Sea is an incredibly beautiful melancholic melody
that turns like those who were trapped in musical boxes decades ago.
The piano is unbelievably beautiful. Playing on the bass as the higher
notes, it extends a divine music inspired by the French cinema. It is
too beautiful, and it reminds me of the music of Everything Fades into
Mist from the album Alice. And although darker and slower, Under the
Lotus Tree is in the same acoustic vision, except for orchestrations.
This garden of sounds hosts a Japanese string instrument where the
finely plucked chords resonate in arrangements that are both
frightening, in particular with the samples of distraught voices and
some are more spirit u al. I hear a Kitaro's theatrical vision here.
Suspect is a slow title that languid orchestrations makes suspect!
You have to listen to a track like Le Periferique more than once in
order to appreciate the artistic dimension of Walter C. Rothe, who
here dresses like Mike Oldfield in an intense six minutes of
minimalist electronic rock. The rhythm is actually catchy and serves
as a basis for spreading the dexterity of the Belgian musician who
multiplies synth solos and others chants like the trumpets, as well as
acoustic guitar and electric guitar solos while handling percussion
samples, as much tribal as rock, which are festive and wild. Jane DÁrc
is a beautiful tear-extracting title with a piano and keyboard that
scatter chords coming from the soul. The bass is poignant in this
oneiric sweetness which becomes a ballad, always tear-extracting,
dressed in a very New Age white veil when the percussions decide to
shake the moods. The music blends with the disastrous orchestrations o
f Pierre Lachaise where this delicate magic piano is still tingling.
For Tracy / Little Drummer Girl is another beautiful New Age lunar
ride. Souvenir de Paris is a complex title that begins with a mini
string orchestra supporting the ballad of the piano in a vision of
music from the Baroque era. The movement changes direction after 2:30
to take a corridor of experimental progressive music with a path of
groaning passion on disheveled percussion and a stream of sequences
and arpeggios with jerky flow. The music returns to a calmer level
after two minutes of artistic violence to die out with two lines of
melodies cradled by these suggestive voices. It seems to me that
Walter was influenced by Vangelis that I would not be surprised. A
particularly good title if you like it a little more experimental.
Salut Michel is an explosive title that sounds so much like
Jean-Michel Jarre. Enough to think that it is he, himself who
interprets a new composition imagined in the decor of Chronology .
Walter Christian Rothe spreads his intimate secrets in SECRETS and his
art of composition where electronic and acoustic visions refine their
beauty on sometimes dramatic and often romantic structures. I was
pleasantly surprised by the depth of the compositions on this album
whose main asset is this lack of homogeneity which made me constantly
travel through the emotions of Walter Christian Rothe.

Due to the fact that we use a special shipping service that provides
the shipping of parcels etc we don't have to adjust the shipping prices
at this moment. One of the reasons is that because of you our costumers
we can keep these prices so low. With over 1500 parcels shipped last year
we can stay in the lowest shipping prices!
I am glad we are one of the few suppliers of EM that did not have to raise
their shipping prices. So for the 4rth year in a row they stay the same!!
