Hi All

First some info for all the people who use Bandcamp as a music source!!

As we are in the process of uploading most of the Groove catalog on Bandcamp
we now run into a problem (although is it a problem!!)
Bandcamp announces these as NEW releases but they are of course NOT new !,
some are 25 years old but now for the first time on Bandcamp. We clearly
put with each release  the original release year so please!! check that.

As we now have 1 costumer that has bought 2 albums that he already
owned, (because he thought they where new) we now run into the problem
that through Bandcamp it's nearly impossible to refund orders and we
also are unable to check these claims!! We offered him a good solution for
his problem but to make sure we don't have this more often, we ask you to:

Please check if you have the releases that are announced as new by
Bandcamp already!! Because many are far from new and have been
available through Groove and other sources for years (not all but many!!)


The new Thorsten Quaeschning - Munich Session  is in and it is fantastic!!
I was already a big fan of him with his work in TD and with Ulrich Schnauss.
And of course his great work as Picture Palace Music!
This The Munich Sessions is another feather in his cap.
If you like multi sequencing and rhythmic layering in the best form available
then this CD is for you.  I played 10 minutes in Dreamscape radio check that out!!

And we have extended this offer for one more week!!
The response was BIG to say the least!

gr-267 Spyra - InSPYRAtion

The story, the evolution of Spyra shows that the German musician likes
to keep his audience on the alert. The one who has long been nicknamed
the Klaus Schulze of the new decade likes to spread his know-how by
visiting all areas of the EM, from Berlin School to ambient music, via
EDM and even a little tour of pastoral music. And each album provokes
reflection but ends up filling the fans of EM. The question is when,
and after how much? Even the sublime Dunst didn't charm at first
listen. In 2017, Spyra concocted a strange album, not to say
enigmatic, with the participations of Mani Neumeier, Konstantin
Athanasiadis and Roksana Vikaluk. Requiem - Eine Musik Für Den
Herrenabend took us to dark music territories with a pastoral vision
that limited the explorations and improvisations of a more typical EM
of the Berlin School. Even without these dimensions, the music of this
album commanded a few listenings before assimilating it well and
falling under its austere charms. It must be said that the boiling Lux
Aeterna, present on this album, had all the tools to bring us to a
musical summit which our senses badly needed. It was at these moments
that the musical union between Spyra and Roksana Vikaluk was consumed.
InSPYRAtion is a recording of a concert given by Der Spyra and Roksana
at a music festival in Solingen, Germany. And it is miles away from
this album with a much more energetic music with a more Berlin School
vision. But when, and after how many listenings ...
It's with a big crash of reverberations that Zeitstaub envelops our
ears. Lines escape from this sound nucleus, including a luminous
approach that shimmers like limpid water and makes its sonic lappings
sound in a singing symphony of prism. A more reverberant line puts
down this slight tumult, Zeitstaub embraces then a more ethereal phase
with the voice of Roksana whose celestial murmurs come into conflict
with the synth pads scented of Vangelis' floating o rchestrations. The
voice is high, and the armor of the synth is the opposite. Both
approaches deviate to another phase of Zeitstaub which remains immured
in cryptic atmospheres. The first frame of rhythm is born of a
fountain of rattling with a line of sequences that goes up and down by
adjusting its course with the velocity of the sequencer and its
circular structure. Synth layers, quite angelic, wrap up warmly this
movement that our ears will forget a few minutes later. Already,
another line of the sequencer embraces this movement while the synth
pads become denser, as more musical too. This line waddles, amplifying
the polyphase form that Zeitstaub will unfold for its next 20 minutes.
This structure, that goes up and down on a stream of sequences is
still active in the scenery, amasses various effects and other
sequences whose incomplete forms give a more variegated polish at this
pace which will be the main arena between the synth, and its ghostly
solos, and Roksana's voice and its interstellar Diva murmurs. In this
regard, I wrote in the Requiem review that this duo would probably be
more daring than the Schulze & Gerrard tandem because of the more
progressive vision of Spyra. And this Zeitstaub confirms these writings.
The stream that has embellished its decor sparkles in the opening of
Flying Thoughts, as well as this oneiric movement of the sequencer.
The rhythm becomes light with a spasmodic spheroidal form where chimes
start to dance, like these giant figurines animated by blowers. A
piano puts down slightly its notes in this seraphic decoration which
bears the signature of Spyra. These notes wander aimlessly while the
sequenced ritornello keeps the charms, and interest in my ears, up
until a big vacuum is swallowing this duel around the 7th minute. From
then on, Flying Thoughts plunges into a jumble of tones and effects.
Little steps run everywhere, the sequenced rhythm line is clearly in
survival mode while the piano extends its gibberish in a 2nd part
where the improvisation really eats the inspiration. Despite some
harmonic gleams, this section is the most difficult of InSPYRAtion.
Lux Aeterna is as energetic as on Requiem. This mixture of EDM and of
a concerto for distressed voices overflows towards Aerial Vox, a solid
title that changes skin, like a musical snake and its mutations. Its
intro proposes a piano, definitely more musical, which is joined by a
luminous keyboard and its bluish glass arpeggios. Percussions effects
trace a Lounge genre while misty haze gives a Berlin School-style
nebulosity. The rhythm comes alive to become an up-tempo that is not
quite mature and is rather in the psybient style before embracing a
phase of dance music, in the Spyra style, with very good synth solos.
The finale becomes toxic and leads to a purer Electronica with Roksana
singing in an Electro-Orient style. The pace is quiet to reach an
ethereal finale that decrees the end of a concert whose last 2 titles
will make forget the fi r st two, which in turn, will become those
titles that will lead us joyfully to the second part of the most
catchy InSPYRAtion.
So, when and after how many plays I have enjoyed this latest Spyra
album? Aside from the 2nd part of Flying Thoughts, it was done pretty
fast ... But to finish, and for an album in concert, that remains
another very good album of Spyra. Hard to survive to Dunst!

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!!
