Hi All

We had a great concert day in Belgium during the Db2fluctuation
electronic music event.

What a great location!! What a cool audience (150+ !!)
Lovely sound, great stage and very well organized!
And Harold van der Heijden, Frank Dorittke and Stevo Petherick where
in a great form, I think we rocked the house.

A wide spread of EM styles, certainly not all my cup of Tea but I was
surprised by many acts. Made a lot of new friends.
Only 20 minutes overdraft in time! Many Festivals can learn from that!

Thanks to the guys from Nothing but Noise who invited us!
And the guys on stage for the light and sound in Het Gasthuis in
Aarschot. It sounded and looked Great!!

And YES!! I want to play in the Chapel :-) What a great place to preform.

During this festival the organization had a nice free CD for all who
came and we have
copies for all who orders 2 or more CDs from us!!
Amount is limited so don't wait to long, gone is gone.
Just add the TXT "Db2 CD" in the TXT file and we will add it :-)

Next week we have the Schallwelle Election, info TXT in German in the
concert section!!.
Just throw it in Google Translate and you will have all the info in
any language you want :-)

And we now have S-A-W (Schmoelling -Ader - Waters) - Iconic in stock.
And both new Groove Releases are available.
Alexander Obukhov - POLAROID CONCERT (cd) gr-287
Icingwolf - FROM INSIDE (cd) gr-289

And a collector is letting some of his special CD's go.
If you have interest in this mail him.

40822 Roach, Steve - Trance Archeology

The word perfection has always flirted with Steve Roach. But it always
surprises me when friend Steve gives us little masterpieces whose
qualifiers start to lack when the time comes to describe his
enchanting universe. Already that Bloom Ascension is in the running
for the album of the year, here is the magician of the panoramas whose
evolutions are fixed to our perceptions returns in force with a very
solid TRANCE ARCHEOLOGY. And the least we can say is that the music
literally sticks to the meaning of this title which suggests a big 74
minutes of trance-tribal music. And it's indeed the case! Apart from
the passages needed to accompany the revival of these rhythmic
extractions which spring up in the form of hypnotic loops. Forget the
sequencers! The basis of the rhythms is based on tribal percussions
and synth loops and sound effects that drumming and rolling under the
magnetizing layers of synths and their shadows tinged with blackness.
I n short, a splendid album with this unique vision of rhythms arising
from the dust of sounds that Steve Roach has created from the moons.
A strange noise, like a belching snail, rises from the silence at the
same time as glass and steel balls entangle their musical knockings in
an awakening sound mass. Spawn of Time takes its time before imposing
its structure of tribal rhythm which rises between the percussive
rolls of the balls and which is agitated like the steps of
warrior-dancers above this cluster of organic-percussive tones. And
it's throughout the 8 chapters of his last opus that Steve imagines
and starts his impressive paraphernalia of tones as unusual as very
attractive. Above these tones are drawn waves and shadows from a synth
still as imposing and attracted by the sources of darkness. The
tamtams are presented in a minimalist form, giving free rein to Steve
Roach to infuse his structures with the fruits of his understanding of
what surrounds the Earth and of what is created, as microscopic as it
may be, in his womb. These long lassos woven into the sound of
reverberating drones envelop the finale in a cabalistic veil, thus
giving free rein to our perception. Dark and cavernous with these
winds coming from the interstices of the Earth's core, Indigo Moon
lets float a melodious approach whose contrast with the elements
surrounding it leads us to Trance Genealogy which wraps our ears with
a spiral deposited at our feet. Dozens of kaleidoscopic loops spring
up. They rise and spin with these sparkling tones of micro-organic
sounds, constantly leaning on a minimalist rhythmic framework
activated by the sequenced multiplication of hypnotic loops. These
elusive loops are sprinkled with sound particles coming from a mass
which is going withering by sprinkling our ears with tones splashes
while synth layers in cello tones extend a bodily aura that leads
Trance Genealogy to the ambient modulations of Long Shadow.
Here the roars have two shades. The sh adows of the synth stretch like
a long, groaning bow on thousands of strings where these absent voices
are hidden. Voices that constantly come back to haunt our hearing in
the serene moments of the album. Birthpulse makes revive the rhythmic
territories of TRANCE ARCHEOLOGY with a very Aboriginal vision.
Tamtams resound in the shade of a heavy pulsating bass, played by Will
Merkle, on a slightly bouncing structure worthy of the title of this
latest Steve Roach album. There is a slight elastic effect forming
echoes in this rhythmic design whose organic vision ignites the
bubbling status of Firebreather. Magic, this phase fills my ears, like
my imagination which sees this tribal trance dance interpreted by a
shaman waving bones and rattlesnakes with his hands chanting dizzying
incantations. The presence of Robert Logan is no stranger to this new
bank of sounds that amazes my Totem Tribes as well as my ears.
Unearthed pursues this heavy and slow rhythm approach which tries to
survive i n a pattern of sound samples which seems to move away from
the origins of TRANCE ARCHEOLOGY. It is slowly, and with Soul
Archeology, that Steve gradually lowers the rhythmic temperature of
his latest opus and, by extension, our circadian excitement. The
pulsating rhythm with a suction effect in its tearing away from the
walls of the void remains dangerously bewitching. Shadows of the synth
come to veil the moods in mode; sleeping is coming soon, with slow
movements that zigzag in leaving in their furrow the vestiges of the
Immersion Series. An imposing finale to impose the tranquility of
another masterpiece by Steve Roach.

14947 S-A-W (Schmoelling -Ader - Waters) - Iconic

This album is just fantastic! They stated that they "paid hommage to
the legends". That 's exactly what they did! The first track
"Einzigartig", is clearly a hommage to Kraftwerk. In other tracks you
can hear hommages to Jarre and Vangelis. "Return To Sender", "The
Crusade" and especially "Beyond The Score" is obviously hommages to
the one and only Edgar Froese/Tangerine Dream! There are no weak
tracks here. Not only a hommage to the legends, but a hommage to all
lovers of instrumental electronic music. Bravo!
This could easily become the album of the year.

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!!
