Hi All.

We have extended the Hemisphere discount this week.
So this week we have a special 20% discount on all Hemisphere releases.
7 Years ago Ralf Knappe-Heinbockel sadly died at the very early age of 44!!
His music is among the best music Groove ever released.
And it should live on and carny his memory further into the music.

In the new addition section some great new versions of Mike Oldfields
great classics, with alternate versions and extra's. Check that out.
We also received the limited LOOM and Jerome Froese releases.
Fine music.

Shipping prices have soared the last years outside of Europe because
of weight and how big a package is.
BUT!!! we have a special shipping service for people outside of Europe.
If you decide to ship the CD's without there Jewel cases
(mind that this can't be done with digi packs and other packaging!!)
we are able to ship 10 CDs unpacked from their jewel cases for $ 23.00.
This is for Registered and Insured shipping.
If you decide to ship them just Priority then we are able to ship 6
CDs for $ 10.00.

But many CD's from Groove are also available through CDBaby.
The price for the CD is the same as here on the website but
if you live in the USA or Canada it could be worth your while because
they ship from the US. They als provide a download platform for these
release so if you like to have the music but not the CD you can buy it
from there.We will add new titles to the regularly. (4 times a year!!)

hear is so very well tuned good composed and played.
I played this cd very many times...difficult to choose, new Boots, new
van der Heijden, new FD-Project....I`m in Synth-Haeven. I`ve seen
several concerts of Morpheusz, these guys are one GOOD OILED MACHINE.

Synth.nl - Apollo (gr-181)
It's on a musical canvas strongly inspired Jean Michel Jarre,
Rendez-Vous era, that bathe the rhythms and atmospheres of Synth NL
4th opus solo, exactly like Jarre's Rendez-Vous. But the legendary
synthesist from France isn't the only source of inspiration which
guided Michel van Osenbruggen in the making of Apollo. Born in 1969,
or the same year that Neil Armstrong became the first human being to
walk on the lunar soil, the Dutch synthesist always maintained robust
connections and deep feelings towards Apollo missions and other
spatial expeditions. It's in this context that Synth. NL proposes us
Apollo, a solid opus where historic narrator voices and spatial sound
effects invade the rhythms and atmospheres which surround 12 titles to
strong reminiscences of the cosmic and rhythmic universe of Rendez-Vous.

Cracklings and cosmic noises open the ambient introduction of
"LaunchPad". A somber synth wave pulses and lays its tones up to the
undulating pulsations of a bass line, leading to vocals samplings
which describe a spatial tragedy. Synth waves sweep the atmosphere,
such as gyrating head lamps enlightening the debris which are bursting
of an igneous color, under the weight of pulsations became more
threatening and more insistent. And it's under the historic speech of
Kennedy that "LaunchPad" takes off slowly of an uncertain rhythm,
perched on its heavy pulsations and wrapped by beautiful twisted solos
which tear the circular veils of a synth to cosmic musical movements.
This rhythmic tendency a bit ambivalent fed the large majority
Apollo's titles. So "Apollo 7" has difficulty to lift off from its
intro filled of round pulsations which mark time on nice synth pads.
Once again vocal samplings of what seems to be the writing desks of
the NASA invade a beautiful rhythmic structure which hatch out more
clearly with very good percussions flittering in wrong sense on a
floating tempo. And I quite like the stereo effect which they throw in
our ears on a mid-tempo slightly groovy which demand for other
listenings. A beautiful sequenced line draws the spherical course of
"Staging". The rhythm settles down. It's frank and curt, bombarded by
pulsations which pound frenziedly on good synth layers before being
moulded in the introductory sequences and dancing on a synth of which
the melodious keys escape from stormy solos and cosmic waves. "Apollo
8" looks like to be mistaken à Jarre! The rhythm is discreet and
languishing, a little as the intersidereal waltzes of Oxygene, and
leans on a delicate percussions play of which the wooden echoes are
buried by layers of a cosmic synth stuffed with soft floating and
spectral solos. A synth with tones of guitar draws a fine approach
tinted by melancholy floating among winds and cosmic sound effects,
while a fine stroboscopic seq uential line encircles of a hatched
approach this mesmerizing cosmic and sensual duality which submerges
"Apollo 8". It's a very good title, quite as "Orbit" which presents a
whole musical cocktail to the antipodes of an ambivalent emotionalism
with an intense apocalyptic intro. Metallic percussions collide
heavily, sequences flutter frenziedly and synth hoops crisscross in an
infernal din, driving to a heavy spatial implosion. There where
celestial choirs hum liberators harmonies and chords of a synth guitar
float and structure a suave ode to serenity. The rhythm gets arouse
towards the 4th minute spot. Keeping its melodious cachet it will go
increasing, by waddling slowly on nice echoing percussions, good heavy
pulsations and synth riffs of which light keys float among fine
hatched circles and superb synth waves to tones of old organs. It's
very beautiful and rather moving.
A bit as a fragmented down-tempo, "Apollo 9" is fed by round and
pulsating sequences as well as by hands banging and echoing
percussions which lose their tempo in beautiful ambient and lunar
phases. The synth is lyrical and draws some nice structures as much
melodious as floating and approaches as celestial as melodramatic.
"Docking" is a black cosmic lament where the solitude perspires the
discomfort on a soft rhythm a bit jazzy which undulates slowly in a
beautiful pond of galactic sound effects. Sharply more rhythmic
"Apollo 11" bursts out in a rather synth-pop rhythmic approach, to the
limit technoïd. The tempo is encircled by a stroboscopic line and fed
by vocal samplings while the synth launches melodious morphic layers
on rhythms which are between the energetic titles of Jarre and Element
4. It's lively, as "ReEntry" which is on the other hand heavier and
curter and which also offers good synth solo. With its light and
melancholic approach, "EarthRise" reminds me of Tomita's
interpretation of Snowflakes are Dancing. Synth layers float, flutter
and crisscross in a symmetric wind while fine pulsations feed a slow
rhythm and that delicate isolated arpeggios draw a somber melody.
Solos are the cornerstone of the heavy and languishing "Apollo 13", by
far the most accessible title on Apollo. The synth forges there some
pretty good melodies which escape from these tortuous solos while the
rhythmic approach is structured by the warning shots of frank and curt
percussions. There is something of intensely poetic and dramatic in
the musical approach of "SplashDown" which encloses in beauty this 4th
opus of Synth NL. It's another great electronic ballad which sounds
strangely like an intersidereal ride. Between the universe of Jarre
and Thierry Fervant, sequences undulate in a static sphere filled with
resonances, while the tempo runs away as a cowboy fleeing a mythical
troop of dust. I find this terrific and I like this slow crescendo
which increases appreciab ly the pace under solos to caustic
reverberations, espousing marvellously the resonances which eat the
harmonies of sequences.

Apollo is doubtless the most complete work of Synth NL. Always by
leaning on structures at once complex and melodious, lying among
indecisive rhythms and atmospheres, Synth NL manages to weave a
musical universe where the paradoxes are in harmony with the concept
of Apollo. If I have a flat it's at the level of the vocal samplings
which take too much place and annoy in the course of time. That would
be better in small dose and on 2 or 3 titles, not that much. With such
on use Synth NL floods a little the envy that we have to listen
certain tracks over and over, I think in particular of the very
beautiful "Apollo 8" and "Apollo 9". But anyway Apollo hides very
beautiful pearls which will become classics of Synth. NL repertoire.
Him who begins to collect them since Atmosphere.
