Hi All

Yesterday we had the 12th Schallwelle-Elections.
We had a nice evening with really good concerts.
Especially the Gunnar Spardel performance was a treat.
Perfect music for live with his partner Améthyste ! I loved it!!
This would be a great act for E-Live !! (yep working on it :-)

Food was again great and the "lifetime award" for Steve Schroyder was
given by Harald Grosskopf who really made a great speech about the life of Steve.
By far the best laudation I have ever heard in all the Elections over the years!
Perfectly timed, great humor and with the over 40 pictures a great walk
through the life of this great musician! Hats of to Harald !

The obvious artists where nominated but also some very nice surprises.
Here the election results: (only pict the first 3)

Catagory International Best Artist
1 Gunnar Spardel
2  Danger in Dream
3  kebu

Catagory International Best album
1  Danger in Dream – Iconic
2  Robert Schroeder – Fata Morgana
3  Schmoelling & Waters – Zeit Concert

Catagory Discovery
1. Martin Stürtzer
2. Glint
2. Panic Girl

And my favorite Election Catagory  "Their own way."
Which is for those who make music, release great stuff and play live and
do it all by them selves on the road to get good EM out there!

Catagory Your own way
 1  Kellerkind Berlin
 2   Parallaxe
 3   IcingWolf
 4   Mac of BIOnighT
 5   Gereon Hillebrand

Thanks to the Schallwelle organisation and especially Sylvia Sommerfeld
for her constant and great work for the EM scene!

The entire results you can find them here!
Have a look its mostly in German but with translate it works fine!

Ian Boddy - The Uncertainty principle 2020 - GR-288

Together with Ian, Groove has re - released this real!! "Ïconic" album.
A master piece of contemporary EM by one of the (perhaps even my favorite)
British EM artist. Ian has been a friend for more then 25 years and during his
concert at E-Live 2019 we discussed the possibility to reissue his older albums on Groove.
A coop between Something Else on these is a dream come true!
To describe Ian's music is ludicrous.
The man has dome so much in so many styles!
But where Ian divers from just being  musicians is the fact that his heart beats EM.
Running a label, making film stock music.
Giving brilliant live performances and caring out EM in general makes him
one of the few !! that I feel very close to.

So here it is the first of what I hope (if sales make it possible) is the start of
more of Ian's older music reissued, re mastered and with additions.
The Uncertainty principle 2020 has a great 18 minutes life track from a performance
of the period that The Uncertainty principle was released.
Live at KLEMDAG 1993!! Have look and listen to Dreamscape radio where we present
this cool new/not new release.

One of the few female EM artists and this 2nd release is really great.

gr-283 Skoulaman - Fluxes in Philadelphia

This album documents the (slightly adjusted) concert Dutch synthesist
Hans van Kroonenburg (whose motto is the power of a synthesizer is not
to imitate but to create) performed at The Gatherings concert series
in May 2019 in Philadephia, USA. Totally relying on hardware synths he
used no backing tape, computer whatsoever. As Hans’ son couldn’t
travel with him for this event, Harrison McKay (member of The
Tangent-Project) replaced him on e-guitar on two tracks. Well, warm,
embracing and lush textural spheres blended with spatial sequencing
and vintage soundings inspired by classic Berlin School lie at the
core of smooth evolving and emotive “Fluxes in Philadelphia”. Pieces
like “Rumble”, “Oceans and Air Guitar”, “EC2” as well as the title
track (kicking off the second set) are where grace and imminent magic
shines through the notes especially.
Rest me to say one simply can’t go wrong with the well-done “Fluxes in
“Philadelphia” (that I ra te between 3.5 and 4 stars) if his previous
album “Next Step in Evolution” ticked lots of boxes for you.

18027 Canovas, Javi - Nights of brightness

Nights Of Brightness. 'Nimbus' is just under 17 minutes of berlin
school heaven! Alien sounds of echoing as if in underground chambers
of caves on a faraway world is joined with atmospheric sound, then a
powerful top-notch sequence arrives, and effects are added, the
sequencing morphs and already this is a wonderful melting pot of a
track! Swooshes and effects takes me into the clouds and then even
higher. It feels like I am on a ride of a lifetime! Tranquillity
eventually takes over towards the end and closes this wonderful piece.
Wow! 'Elipse' starts with strange sounds that remind me of building
robots then a lead line bursts through and a heavy industrial
kraftwerk-like beat comes in and fantastic lead lines fly over the
top. What a fantastic track at just under 6 minutes. 'Metallic Core'
starts with weird echoing sounds that give way to a sequencer bouncing
over the top from ear to ear on my headphones, a rhythm builds and
effects come a nd go. This is mesmerising stuff and I imagine being on
an 'air-bike' flying with the contours of an alien terrain. Effects
sounding strange then a melodic lead line joins and the rhythmic
sequencing shifts down to a lower key, the lead line playing along
with it. It fades out after just 10 minutes but could have gone on, I
loved this one. 'Mr Ivan' launches into a sequencer crazy fest with a
memorable tune that could be a theme to a classic sci-fi tv series or
a futuristic alien version of 'L.A. Streethawk'. Great playing here
from Javi. What a fantastic track, one of the best I have heard from
the synth-wizard! 'Fugitive Star' starts atmospherically like you are
in deep space then a rapid sequence takes over as the atmos fades.
Flute and wind sounds join in, how sublime! Sound effects come and go
and a melody line is introduced and atmos returns with more effects.
This piece is really body moving stuff that takes you on a fantastic
ride! Atmos returns and it fades out. Great stuf f . 'Beta' is all
funky, rhythmic and has another fantastic melodic lead line that is so
catchy that Jean-Michel Jarre would be jealous! Javi can certainly
play and write a great tune that is a gift too few possess! Final
piece is 'Protoplanet', burbling sounds and heavy atmos resonate
through you, then a swoosh and rhythm starts steadily and is actually
slightly creepy to start with but hypnotic, then a high register
sequence tinkles over the top to lighten the mood of the piece, as if
scaring the shadows away. There are little crescendos and a
pitch-bending lead line that I loved. Choir sounds are eventually
heard at about 9 minutes. This is imaginitive and thought provoking
music that I love very much. This piece ends the album and has
brightened up my night for sure! Javi's albums get better and makes me
want to play them again. An essential purchase. Thank you Javi.

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!!
