VA  - Head in the Clouds - Double LP and Double CD.
http://www.groove.nl/jump2.php?artnum=37843

Over 200 minutes of music inspired by Tangerine Dream, Ash Ra Tempel, PopolVuh, and the German electronic music scene of the early 70s..
 A kosmische kompilation!

One or two names that are familiar to fans of Fruits de Mer Records are joined by many artists that are completely new to the label, to recall one of the most innovative periods in music of the last 50 years, when Germany began to create its own sounds and artists explored new musical territories that took them in a very different direction to their contemporaries to the West; the music was remarkable - it still is - and those influences continue to be heard in so much music that is being created today. kosmische sounds, space rock without the rock, horizontal listening – however you want to describe it, this about as far from a mosh-pit as you can get.

This is a combined double LP + double CD set – no music is repeated between the two formats; many of the tracks have been recorded exclusively for ‘Head in the Clouds’, many more are getting their first physical release; the set is only available as a combined package (making it a 5 LP box-set would have been ideal but in these difficult, cash-strapped times, we decided to show a little restraint...for

This week these 2 releases come in. Can not wait to hear them.

PYRAMID PEAK - SYMMETRY
AXESS - ZEN
PP - Symmetry

With their 10th CD, Pyramid Peak demonstrate that, even after more than 30 years after their foundation, they still belong to the absolute top of the German electronic music scene. Symmetry is a typical album of the two friends from Leverkusen with pulsating sequences, catchy melodies and powerful soundscapes. The opener "Countdown" already shows where the journey is going on this CD and the classic Pyramid Peak sound runs like a red thread up to the almost epic final track "Dimension X". As with every album by the band, the CD cover design of Symmetry is again perfectly matched to the theme of the music and a real eye-catcher on the CD shelf. Musically the new album ties in seamlessly with the anniversary CD Roots from 2018 and is a real purchase recommendation for every electronic music lover.

Axess - ZEN

In 2018 Axel’s 7th solo album “Seashore” started a significant change in his music, leaving the traditional path of Berlin School music towards more modern chill-out and ambient styles. ZEN is the sequel to Seashore and consequently follows the musical route which Axel Stupplich from Leverkusen/Germany started a few years ago. The new CD starts with peaceful pads and warm harmonies which make you relaxed instantly. But don’t trust the peace for too long, already in the 2nd track you will be woken up and suddenly find yourself in a different world of deep basses and hypnotic beats. Also in the following tracks Axel plays with the tempo and creates a lot of different moods and sound sculptures. All 8 tracks of ZEN are combined with each other to form one single piece of musical art. Ideally it should be listened without any interruptions and with headphones it would be even more perfect to let you enter the new musical cosmos of Axess!

62293 V/A - Tone Science Module No.4 Form and Function

Synth tears flow with an effect of sharp cuts, giving an illusion of vocals which are accompanied by percussive effects sounding mainly like a wood texture. Imagine two fencers making zigzag their foil around their ears in graceful ambient movements where the brief reverberating effects are the result of hits made by the fencers, and you have the Setting Sun set by Batchas. I tell you straight away, TONE SCIENCE MODULE No.4 FORM AND FUNCTION will be the most inaccessible album of this series which focuses on the art of the modular. There are no big names on this album. Only a bunch of curious, of patentors who like to explore the limits (are there any?) of modular synths. And as is usual with DiN, and with Ian Boddy who mastered the whole thing, this album has its pearls. In return, the rhythms are not legion. Only sounds, their shapes and tonal colors. If Setting Sun is peaceful and ambient, it hits its knot of distortions where our ears se e k to escape from our headphones around the 5th minute. We are in territories forbidden to sustained rhythms and sovereign melodies with a handful of craftsmen who make us discover EM from another aspect. Lightbath's Eternal Terrarium is quite interesting and more musical than Setting Sun. The music is focused on a texture of ambient rhythm animated by a sequencer and other percussive effects, borrowed from the xylophones of the Caribbean, which end up weaving an impressive melody quite unexpected. It feels good after the title of Batchas. Panic Girl's Dream Portal takes this Lightbath path with a fine texture of percussions in a more musical vision, kind of lullaby for aggressive insomniacs. Beautiful and creative! Astral Plane by Andrew Huang is a quite magnetizing atmospheric title. It begins in a sordid way with tones which sparkle and which lengthen their forms to establish a slight movement of musical stream. This pool of limpid tones swarm like a carpet of sonorous worms whic h continues its descent by collecting all forms of sound in order to nourish its teeming mass. It starts from nothing; it becomes intense and it empties as it started!

After a soft and rather meditative introduction, Stefan Bojczuk changes the tone by giving the answer to his soft floating arpeggios with bold, dark and aggressive chords, thus creating brief acrimonious exchanges between the two entities. But between its lingering soporific softness and the brief sonic turbulences, Blackstone Edge succeeds in creating a cinematic universe with a more contemporary vision. I like this opening of machinery that breathes more insistently in the opening of Different Paces. Stefan Bojczuk, from the duo Protogonos who released the album Strange Geography on DiN in 1999 (DiN 3), is very skilled in the art of infusing different cadences behind the loud whispers of machinery. There is an evasive melody, sculpted in a tone of guitar riffs, on this Different Paces which weaves its earworm wit hout warning. An ingenious title that could find its place in a horror film. I love this industrial down-tempo that Steve Davis deconstructs, reconstructs and stabilizes on a sustained pace that moves forward like an overloaded train. We are in the realm of rhythmic din with a slight melodic thread that Steve Davis adds towards the end.

The finale of TONE SCIENCE MODULE No.4 FORM AND FUNCTION is very watered with this title and the fiery ex Machina from Mattia Cupelli. It's heavy and ambient, like a mix of Redshift and ['ramp], against a backdrop of industrial fire whose embers explode here and there, creating a mass of white noises and sizzling that sparkle and chomp on this mass crawling for its survival. There is a vampiric melody that drains its life into another industrial rhythmic din where sirens howl above this slow rhythmic combustion. Quietly, ex Machina takes refuge in a corner of the factory to continue his self-immolation. Different Paces and ex Machina are two hard an d intense tracks which reach a saturation point in this 4th volume of Tone Science Module. After the crisis of this dripping lava, Tim Held ends TONE SCIENCE MODULE No.4 FORM AND FUNCTION with a semi-aggressive structure which evolves between the crises of din and quite meditative passages in Myrdet av Gud whose evolution brings us to a corner of heaven on earth. As in this album which offers a superb vision on the perverse reflections of beauty. To discover absolutely, in order to moderate your fears versus the art of modular synths...
