Here are 2 releases that i had missed over the years, 
Sensory++ - Planet  - 33497
Sensory++ - Exoversum - 33911
http://www.groove.nl/index3.html

2 fantastic sounding release that hold a music between Berlin School and Ambeint although both lean more to the Berlin school genre. What impressed me was the sheer musical quality and the production of these releases!! Absolutly top notch. Joost Egelie the man behind Sensory++ knows his craft! A treat for the mind and ears!!
 
 
And here are 2 great new releases by the German label Mellowjet.

UWE RECKZEH - VOYAGE

Uwe Reckzeh is back again. Yes, it's been three years again since the electronic musician released his last album "Surreal Dreams". With his new album "Voyage" he continues his love for EM in the style of the Berlin School. Much is new, but also this time his current 2021 album "Voyage" maintains Reckzeh's roots. 
A strength of the musician is that he combines the ever new sounds with the classic sounds of traditional EM. It is amazing how modern Berlin school can sound. The pieces on "Voyage" stand for themselves this time and tell about the different emotions a journey can offer. "Voyage" is not really a classic concept album. And that is also good in this case. This is fresh Berlin school in perfection.

----------------------------------------------------
EREZ YAARY - MEMORIA TECHNICA

How will a dystopian world feel like inhabitant by post-humans, fusing organic and machine together?

Memoria Technica takes the listener to a journey of thoughts and emotions touching the core elements of future living when it will be impossible to tell the real from the fake.
 
 
Floating Days - The perfect sampler.
This might well be one of the best sampler CD's I have ever come accross, 
It came in this week and has been spinning for a few days now in my CD player and the music is really good. Very versatile but all tracks are an homage to Klaus Schulze and you can hear that clearly. Listen to Dreamscape radio where i play one of the tracks on this great double CD!!

--------------------------------------------------------------
Lionel Palierne - Krill

There are two ways of producing works of “Berlin School”: the one which consists in taking up and perfecting the techniques of this style which was born in the mid-1970s, and the one which consists in inventing new ones. Within PWM we have goldsmiths who belong to the first category such as Kryfels, Moon Satellite and Sequentia Legenda. while others are inclined to invent new ways of doing things, we think of Olivier Briand, Zanov, Kurtz Mindfields, the duo Frédéric Gerchambeau and Bertrand Loreau, and Jean-Michel Maurin too.

Lionel Palierne belongs to the latter category. He innovates by the sounds he creates, a lot by his original harmonic research, and, obviously, by his very particular phrasing. Lionel's music falls under the "Berlin School" category because it is escape music that harnesses the fascinating power of sound, and the hypnotic, haunting character of sequences.

It keeps its qualities of this style, and at the same time, it draws it towards a more ambitious music which could enter the register of the classical contemporary music. You have to listen to Lionel's music with a desire to continue the journeys offered by cosmic music, accepting that it is the music that would come from elsewhere, and to us.

It's as if this music, at times moving, is not just human. It associates feelings of uneasiness, strangeness, it is disturbing at times, but at the same time one cannot help but follow it because it is in every chord or melodic line the promise of deep and unpredictable emotions. Lionel is one of the most amazing artists that electronic music has known. His art, which comes from the 70s, is unlike any other, and exceeds that of several "stars" from the world of synthesizers, new-age or even ambient, whose works, although interesting sometimes, in remain at the level of the illustration of a discourse anchored in its time. Lionel's music speaks for itself. It doesn't need words to be forward thinking and one of a kind and, perhaps, to eternity, because it invents a new language. An eternity in the image of Antarctica that we guess to illustrate this disc; a drawing that Lionel had created in the 80s when he was playing with Bertrand Loreau. There is perhaps no coincidence in this evocation because we all have within us the images of these icy landscapes, both cold and sunny, which correspond well to the music of Lionel which is both rigorous and biting like ice cold, but also luminous, like the sun rising over the immense white. (H.B.)

You can listen to a track in Dreamscape Radio!! Wonderfull music.

REVIEW
gr10004 Age - Hypnagogie

AGE is a duo of Belgian musicians with a very progressive vision on the art of using instruments and gear in the field of Electronic Music. After Néphélomancie, Emmanuel D'haeyere and Guy Vachaudez offer us another work based on a collage of sound effects and bits of electronic music in an album that reaches almost 50 minutes. And like Nephelomancy, the Dutch label Groove nl proposes this album, divided in 4 segments on Ron Boots' label, in its CD-R collection with cd-case and artworks. The last album helping, I discovered HYPNAGOGIE with a little less difficulty.

Hypnagogie Part One starts with clocks and dials. Then, we dive into surrealism with a series of sound effects that sail between transient harmony, cosmic visions and orchestrations that come and go without tuning. Being the state that serves as a bridge between this moment of wakefulness and sleep, HYPNAGOGIE seeks to avoid any tonal structures that could make us drift from one point to another. Nothing is done to monopolize the sustained attention. It is necessary to fall into a state of sleep. This explains the absence of rhythms, as well as complete musical textures including melodious phases. On the other hand, Hypnagogie Part One proposes rather harmonious textures interspersed with violent door knocks, like impulses on the level of the orchestrations that have become too intense. The piano, the violin and the cello are divine in this first segment which seems to me quite listenable. Hypnagogie Part Two is less so! The transition between the two passages gives a sibylline phase with good moments of tenderness that are immersed by more dramatic moments. There are few musical moments in these minutes where the darkness upsets the order of things with appearances in various forms, creating more bits of ambiences with sliced layers so as to recognize them once near each other. The similar moments in Hypnagogie Part One are amplified, even more violent h e re. Heavy and creepy with a more intensified finale than in the first part of HYPNAGOGIE. Hypnagogie Part Three follows the path of Hypnagogie Part One. While Hypnagogie Part Four is the most repulsive part with voice effects and door slamming that are very close to the atmospheres of William Friedkin's film, The Exorcist. Since Hypnagogie Part Two that the piano notes tinkle with a resonance to get on our nerves. And it's even worse in this last part which gradually scatters its dark web to return to the soft musicality of an opening without any melodious embryo.

AGE's HYPNAGOGIE is for the lovers of movie music where there is no time to weave links to stick a harmonious texture or sustained rhythm between the images of the movie. It's a darker and bolder sound mosaic than Nephelomancy, but still just as listenable.
