Atilla, Can - HI-Story (GR-183)

You don't know Can Atilla yet? So, here's a good way of remedying it.
A great superstar in his country, Can Atilla is a solid Turkish
composer and musician who is much at ease in works with symphonic
character as in more accessible and electronic works. Strongly
influenced by Tangerine Dream, Jean Michel Jarre and Vangelis, Can
Atilla built himself a legion of fans that impatiently wait for his
electronic works on Groove. More than 6 years distance his last album
appeared on Groove (Concorde) and Hi-Story, and Can Atilla didn't
change at all. Hi-Story is a solid opus of an EM strongly inspired by
the 90's with rhythms and melodies weaved in the paths of albums such
as Turns of the Tides, Tyranny of Beauty or still Revolutions and
Chronology, but with a delicious tribal mixture.

Sequences which pound and skip in a nest of pulsations a bit resonant,
"The Kings and the Beggars (Part One)" sets the tone to this Can
Atilla album with a title which seems to come straight from Turn of
the Tides' sessions from the cult group of the Turkish musician.
Nervous, the rhythm is covered by suave discreet choirs and keyboard
riffs which succumb to a soft avalanche of percussions. "The Kings and
the Beggars (Part One)" borrows then a more rock tangent with a nice
mixture of sequences and percussions which bear riffs and guitar solos
at once sober and incisive, overhanging a beautiful melodious approach
sometimes dreamy sometimes rocky. "Hi-Story" continues this
introspection of the musical universes of Tangerine Dream with a warm
synth line which wraps a beautiful sequential movement skipping in a
symmetric linear movement. Other sequences are grafted and shape a
beautiful oscillating structure which undulates with grace under the
spell of angelic choruses. Memories of Tangerine Dream poor in our
ears with this title which seems to embrace periods so diverse as
Falshpoint, Wavelenght, The Park or still Stratosfear 95 with a
rhythmic approach which becomes more nervous. Some nice synth pads
with sensual fluty tones wrap the hatched flow while "Hi-Story"
hesitates between a honeyed and nervous approach to finally board a
more complex one where rhythmic linking are as twisted as the
enchanting melodies which surround them. It's a very beautiful title,
with good synth solos, which deserves the listening which it requires,
as well as "When Kafka Drink Orange Juice" which hugs closely the same
harmonious and rhythmic tangents. "The Flashbacks" is another
highlight of Hi-Story which begins with a twinkling rivulet of synth
pads to limpid and fluty tones. Notes of an austere piano fall. They
awake sleepy choirs and a rhythm which fidgets under a very nice line
of piano with a lot of wavy notes lines. A bass line spreads its notes
which slightly skip, the piano becomes livelier and "The Flashbacks"
imposes a rhythm as much heavy as slow, endowed with a beautiful
furtive approach arched on a slow oscillatory movement. The beauty of
this title is the subdivision of synth lines which throw good solos,
clouds of mist as well as melodious lines with clear tones of Turkey
which chords of a Turkish guitar coat with a beautiful tribal melody.
This Turkish tribal approach goes on in "Sultan's Sequencer" whose
curt and jerky rhythm is wrapped by a synth filled of clan and
electronic lines and a beautiful romantic guitar. "Thives of Bagdad"
also plunges us into the tribal atmospheres Turks with a great title
among which rhythms and atmospheres tergiversate between a music a bit
technoïd; with curt and slamming percussions à la Jarre, electronic;
with wavy sequences and a fluty synth, and finally ethereal; with a
smooth tribe approach. These genres become entangled in a hybrid
structure where melody and anarchy merge in a delicious musical
cocktail. Very good! Sequences wave in a frenzied ballet of
crisscrossed keys and lay the stormy bases of "Shadow of the Knights".
The percussions tumble down and push the rhythm towards a stronger
approach where synth pads and riffs get harmonize with eerie choirs
and sinuous solos, floating on a rhythmic structure became wilder.
"The Kings and the Beggars (Part Two)" has nothing to do with the
stamping rhythm of "Part One". On the contrary! It's a smooth and
sensual hymn to rights and a soft warning shot to inequity. It's a
wonderful slow dance which brings us back in this nostalgic era of the
Saturday nights dances where Procol Harum organs dragged their
languishing tones under heavy percussions and choirs of mist. WoW!
It's splendid and we won't understand why it's naming isn't For the
Love of...Simply delicious! With its dramatic keys which pussyfoot in
nice cosmic mists and synth winds to tones of soft murmurs and flutes
with bitter sighs as in Le Parc, "Solar - is …" is a smooth electronic
melody which is slowly carried away on crisscrossed sequences
flittering in a soft ethereal dream. It's kind of nice and melodious
while being very melancholic. Tribal breaths and a bow striking the
strings of a Turkish violin open "Nights of the Rain Prayers". Quite
moving with its heart-rending violin, the intro is hiding little by
little in the shapes of a delicate me lody of which sequenced
arpeggios alternate in fine wavy loops and skip towards pulsatory
percussions. The tempo is outlined. Halfway between synth-pop and
electronic music, it cavorts under strata of an imaginary violin,
concluding Hi-Story by a melodious and symphonic approach which is the
privilege of Can Atilla's last opus.

Once again Can Atilla goes out from nowhere to offer us a very good
unexpected album. A melodious album where tribal, synth-pop and
electronic rhythms are wrapped with this delicious quintessence that
are the influences of Tangerine Dream and Jean Michel Jarre. There are
great tracks laying on Hi-Story. Titles which are a bit out from the
main axis of a more conventional EM but which preserve this unique
cachet of the good and melodious approaches that the Dream and Jarre
scattered in the 90's on well structured rhythms and sequences and
where synths distance themselves by structuring beautiful melodies
rather than to concentrate on virulent solos. Hi-Story is in the
continuity of Live and Ave, two opuses which established the
credibility of Can Atilla in this wonderful universe of sounds and
give rhythms which is EM.

Ramp – Return (38621)

As its title freely let suggest it, Return is a return to basics for
['ramp] with an album completely made from analog equipments. Only
master aboard of his studio and his abyssal wings, Stephen Parsick
weaves 2 long titles to similar structures where the abrasive and
industrial ambiances blow in the neck of heavy, static and unbridled
rhythms. astral disaster and return are 2 long titles of an average
length of 37 minutes segmented in several parts which are entwining in
2 powerful musical patterns of smells of suffers and colors of steel.
Two titles of a lead heaviness which let themselves caressed by
ambiances as poetic as devilish and bombarded by rhythms as heavy as
unbridled, Return embraces the blackness of Redshift, the tamed
rhythms of Tangerine Dream and the illuminated cosmos of Jean Michel Jarre.

Like an apocalyptic musical book, "122112" goes down from celestial
bodies with a slow linear movement adorned by cosmic dusts which
sparkle in an ambiance stuffed with atmospheric tones. Ambient noises,
restrained impulsions, crystalline serpentines, scattered pulsations
and dark breaths feed this intro which amplifies its Dantesque
character to finally sink into the heavy implosions of "astral
disaster" and of its angelic choruses immured in the entrails of a
condemned land. The ambience is heavy and stigmatized by a scent of
suffer made iridescent. The choirs murmur and their voices join to
synth lines at once mephistophelic and poetic which float and which
tear of their silvered tones the walls of an abyssal corridor in order
to hide in the depths of immobilism. This opera of choirs sclerosed in
time gets transpose into the limbos of the steel mill from "unholy
messiahs" which, such as sunbeams after a torrent of carbonized
drizzle, moderates the chthonian ambiances with a pas sage with the
colors of rainbow, before that the anger of the gods thunders with
"iniernal machines". "part one" opens the infernalities with deaf
pulsations which drop their felted rustles among metallic cymbals and
silvery breaths. A powerful sequence starts to activate. Its heavy
resonant keys surround some more agile sequences which flutter in a
delicious anarchy, shaping an unreal rhythm which is feeding of a
sequential mishmash to forms and tones mixed. On an abstruse rhythm,
"iniernal machines part one" continues its powerful and static
devilish ride with heavy sequences to made Redshift go pale. Sequences
which stagger with the grace of an elephant on acid, up until the
doors of its 2nd part, there where the ambiances toil to contain the
ceaseless stream of the stormy sequences which cry out their right of
destruction. Puny, the rhythm of "iniernal machines part two" shivers
and bends under the weight of the thunderous sequences which resound
and make trembles both the eardr ums than the subterranean corridors
and crash into an aggressive echo. The subdued choruses roam on this
powerful stationary rhythm which little by little gets out of breath
and takes refuge within the breaths of genesis of "a new dawn" and
those more orchestral and more liberators of "122212".

The 2nd portion of Return is more musical and more melodious,
caressing the rhythms and approaches of Tangerine Dream in the clogs
of Redshift. The intro of "Return" slides in a beautiful musical
panorama where sinuous waves caress the resonant curves of the biting
reverberations. The chthonian choruses always have precedence. They
breathe in gloomy mists. Blowing in horns, they clear particles and
hoops of metal which tear the astral veils to make roar the
intersidereal darkness and bring us to the first stammering of the
deaf pulsations from "radiocarbon part one". Except that the rhythm
carries away very early. Heavy and powerful, it strolls with
hesitation before biting the spine of zombie's choirs and skipping
with strength and resonance in a structure of lead where the wandering
choirs are caressing it curvatures. The rhythm is heavy, powerful and
fluid. It's flown over by synth solos as much strident as lyrical
which become infatuated with an infernal passion to a rhythm of steel.
A rhythm which evolves in fine permutations to be ennobling in the
sweetnesses and the ethereal solos of "beacon" before spurt even more
in "radiocarbon part two" which revives all the power of its first
part. "lighthouse" concludes this apocalyptic journey into the blows
of angelic and iridescent trumpets, looping the loop of Return with
the Dantesque breaths of "astral to disaster".

Return is a powerful journey in the analog lands of an EM which fed
the fantasies of the first fans of a music which transcends the
borders of imagination. Stephen Parsick succeeds an incredible tour de
force by sculpturing a music to thousand torments from completely
analog equipment where the somber psychedelicosmic ambiances bind
themselves in rhythms as heavy as powerful. Following to evolutive
musical patterns where the passion whips up furious sequences sculptor
of thunderous rhythms, Return is a real musical puzzle where every
sound and every note fit into 2 wonderful electronic acts displaying
all the genius and the know-how of the caustic man in black of EM.

Roach, Steve - Back to Life (25989)

Big comeback of Steve Roach? But did he ever leave? No, definitely not
a comeback, but certainly a big one!!! No question about this, because
"Back To Life" double CD presents The Master at the very top of his
unmeasurable creativity and invention. Together with "Groove
Immersion" it comprises "Steve Roach 2012 Box Set", so a very hot
item. Both these titles are sold also separately, but missing this box
set in my own collection would be a big mistake.

"Where Rasa Lives" fires the show with gracefully floating ambience
clocking to 15-minute mark, but after 9 minutes "hidden" crystalline
grooves enter the stage. On the first "look" it sounds quite minimal,
but careful listening explores all kinds of sounds and atmospheres,
all interacting precisely, carefully balanced and graciously moving
just like the droplets on the album's cover image (absolutely gorgeous
work by Kristina Kotarski, the hellfirediva!!!). "Where Rasa Lives" is
one of the best and most tranquil pieces of music Steve ever did (and
he did a whole bunch of them!), a pure symphony for my ears!!! "Cloud
Cover" lives and breathes, again packed with amazing sounds and
noises, Steve's soundsculpting shifts this composition into another
level, a level solely occupied by him now! It's heavy thunderous piece
that smoothly transfers after 6 minutes into serenely drifting washes
peppered by some highly attractive noisier ingredients. The title of
the next track speaks for itself, "Tranquility Base". Gently pulsing
slow-mo trancey/tribal grooves join the show for another truly
exciting, one of its kind, sonic pleasure. It's ultra deeply absorbing
16-minute bliss!!! "The Wonder Of It All" moves back to louder plateau
with more monstrous, spiraling dronescapes, powerful and grandeur,
another top-notch adventure!!! The next composition, "Touchstones",
strikes with its intensity and drama. And it keeps on rolling, because
"Everything Inside" is breathtaking odyssey into the deep cave to
explore its stunningly spectacular sceneries. Steve at his most
droning!!! And the title track is yet to come... The closing part of
disc 1, "Back To Life" keeps on the route, less massive, but still
quite symphonic and later uplifted with fragile groovy flavours.
Absolutely grandiose finale of the first half!!!
Disc 2 features 70-minute long form composition breathing with many of
the finest spices from the first disc and creating continuous flow of
deeply absorbing ambience drifting through richly colored organic
passages and movements, again showcasing refined artistry of its virtuoso.

The future is now!!! "Back To Life" 2xCD is without any doubt one of
the best and most groundbreaking recordings of 2011 (or 2012?). No
matter, I think it's just a question of time before "Back To Life"
will become another milestone not only in Steve's phenomenal career,
but also in the ambient genre as a whole. Yes, a truly genius,
all-inclusive, performance by this ambient giant, and for me, a truly
magnificent and immersing lifelong sonic experience!!! Life is so beautiful!!!
