Hi All

I am glad to announce the 3rd re-release of Zanov on Groove Unlimited.
GR - 234 - Zanov – Moebius 256301 (40th anniversary edition)
It should be available next week.

Zanov, strongly influenced by his own scientific background, always
attempted to connect some scientific concepts such as chaos theory,
fractals and complexity theory with his music. Its influence appeared
in 1977 while experimenting with some three counts patterns sequencers
that changed almost unnoticed to four counts pattern sequences and
reverse. This process made Zanov think of the Moebius endless loop
which shifts unnoticed from one face to the other and appears as the
album’s cover art.

“Moebius 256301” continues the soundscapes introduced on “Green Ray”
with new melodic elements creating another immersive aural experience,
this is its brief history. In December 1976 Zanov expanded his
synthesizer set up with a new ARP2600 with sequencer. 1977 shaped up
as a busy year expanding Zanov’s musical realm with a series of live
performances and more instruments offering new musical possibilities.
“An Zero” was the first composition completed for Moebius while
preparing for his first live concert at the Paris Laser Olympia in March 1977.
After “Green Ray”, the record label requested shorter compositions to
promote the album and from a dozen sound sketches only “Moebius
256301” and “Enygma” ended up on the album. During a live tour in June
1977 Zanov purchased the RMI Harmonic synthesiser used for the first
time during the Paris Planetarium concerts which also inspired his
personal favourite composition “Plenitude”, the only album track the
RMI was used on. “Moebius 256301” was completed eventually at the end
of 1977 setting the scene for more concerts in the following year and
for the follow-up album “In Course of time”, but that’s another story...

P.S. The 40th anniversary cd-release contains “Moebius 256” in its
original long version as a bonus, for which Zanov applied both the EMS
VCS3 and ARP 2600.

And also announced but for October 20th 2017
ARC - Fleet DiN53
Limited to 1,000 copies. Digipak CD format.

“Fleet” (DiN53) is the seventh concert album by the duo ARC (DiN label
boss Ian Boddy and Mark Shreeve). This fact alone should tell you how
popular this musical partnership is in a live setting where they
continue to dazzle audiences with their mix of live electronics
underpinned by huge slabs of analogue sequencing.

“Fleet” was recorded to multitrack at the E-Scape Electronic Music
Festival in Halesworth, Suffolk on 13th May 2017. On returning to the
studio this allowed Mark Shreeve to mix and master the resulting
performance in fine detail to produce a stunning, dynamic album that
preserves all the power and richness of their live show. The seven
tracks, complete with enthusiastic audience ambience, spans almost 78
minutes for the next best thing to actually being there!

What is most evident on this ARC album are the richly harmonic themes,
most notably in the opening title track which builds and grows through
a series of gorgeous melodies to it’s climax. Tracks such as “Soar”
are more delicate in nature with distant mellotrons overlaid with
intertwining sequencer patterns whereas “Crux” opens with a spooky
ambient section before ramping up to a live sequencer fest that lovers
of Berlin School electronica will lap up. ARC always like to leave the
 stage with a bang and for the last couple of years they’ve finished
with the track “Cherry Bomb”. Well the duo have outdone even that
blockbuster with the encore track “Howl”. Starting with a whisper it
finishes the album off with a real sledgehammer of a track that will
surely become a favourite for ARC aficionados.
Ian Boddy.

Looks like a great release and if you pre-order it we will give you a 10%
discount!! And it should be in during E-Live and E-Live Extended!!

61046 Rich, Robert - Vestiges

With "Vestiges" Robert Rich continues his tremendously enrapturing
aural venture into tenebrously reflective terrains distinctively
mirrored on magnificent "What We Left Behind" album. Precisely
displayed by stunningly immersing cover images by photographer Brad
Cole with additional design by John Bergin, both truly amazing kindred
visual artists, who are tightly connected to Robert Rich's soundworlds
for few decades already. Packaged in a really elegant 6-panel digipak,
the album was released during November 2016 and as usual for each of
Robert Rich's releases, the listener gets a true piece of art! So
obviously I have to send kudos to all involved!

6-plus minutes long "The Fading Shore Of Memory" reveals the journey
with nebulously meandering texture commingling nuanced expansive
driftscape, signature lap steel guitar weeps, balmy organic quietudes,
vague cyber-tech deflections, glimpsing introspective patterns and
intangibly pecul iar slams. The track precisely follows its title.
"Night Seas Luminesce", clocking to 7-minute mark, seamlessly invades
and shifts into slightly intenser drone cascades, yet exquisitely
counterpointed by filigree stringed magic and poignantly engrossing
piano minimalism. "Spectre Of Lost Light", running over 15 minutes, is
I believe the track Robert Rich has composed as his own musical
interpretation of the old Slavonic ritual of the Forefathers’ Eve for
a special live performance on November 15th 2016 in Krakow, Poland.
Intense desolate drones masterfully amalgamate with lower end abyssal
magnitudes and hissy cyber-biotic scatters. The gates to the
transcendental realms are fully unlocked, but then the ethereal voice
clouds by Chari Chuang (also known from "Medicine Box" and "What We
Left Behind") soften a bit the whole spectacle, before again diving
into unfathomably engulfing sceneries reinforced by persistently
towering and titillating tapestries. Towards the end deep drone hum s
resurrect and culminate with utterly mind-blowing voluminousness. A
truly jaw-dropping epic listening experience awaits here, meticulously
filled with intriguingly sinuous enigmas and staggeringly crescendoing
meridians!!! Additional credit goes to Dimitris Menexopoulos, for
using his Cretan lyra clouds. "Obscured By Leaf Shadows" is propelled
by rather monochromatic layer, gliding through sublimely spacious
zones, guarded by Chari Chuang's celestial voice-like washes with
glancing ear-tickling reverberations, thrillingly coalesced with
rattling natural symphonies and solitary deep bass undulations, and
all marvelously bridged with gorgeously poetic piano glimmers. Another
aural bliss and an ultimate Hall of Fame composition!!! Nearly 9
minutes long "Equipoise And Dissolution" unfolds with more ambiguous
tiding motifs, permeated by remote voice samples with shattering
fragments, while primordial flute curtains, contemplatively engulfing
bells, diaphanously gentle chinks and outlyi n g low-pitched
sonorousness clandestinely sneak in and join this soothingly sweeping
and majestically enrapturing scenario. Pure magic! Ambrosial natural
sounds juxtapose with sequestered labyrinthine drones on "Reborn In
Brackish Pools", with 3:40 the shortest track on "Vestiges". Auxiliary
lap steel wails emerge as well and delve deeply into venturesomely
perplexing subterranean domains. 16-minute closing "Anchorless On
Quiet Tide" is fastidiously exhibited by its name, when ingeniously
blending sparse piano musings and pristine littoral serenities with
vaporously caliginous and euphoniously pondering images. A delightful
sonic postcard painted by calm reminiscences and blurred horizons.

Over 62 minutes long "Vestiges" album is another virtuosically
polished monument by this Californian mastermind! Yeah, and the sound
quality is, as always, top-notch! We all must be enormously grateful
for such artistic gift, brilliance and consistency, thank you so much,
Robert!!! Since I am quite slow with my review schedule, Robert Rich
has released in the meantime another two recordings, the first one is
a collaborative effort with German touch guitar wizard Markus Reuter
and it's entitled "Lift A Feather To The Flood". It was released
during April 2017 on Robert's Soundscape Productions, 10 years after
their first chapter "Eleven Questions". And the most recent is a
double CD document "Live At The Gatherings 2015", this one is out
since June 2017 on Industry8 label.
