20512 Moonbooter - Elected Pieces (2012-2020)

There are questionable compilations and other ones that are necessary
in order to discover an artist with a range as wide as that of
Moonbooter. With nearly 30 albums to his credit and his style of
compositions, short pieces which flirt between EDM, Electronica and
the New Berlin School's electronic rock, Moonbooter is the kind of
artist who can afford to offer compilations. Especially that he does
not abuse of it! ELECTED PIECES 2012-2020 is the second compilation of
Bernd Scholl's universe. In a 73-minute continuous musical mosaic, the
German musician-DJ offers us 11 tracks taken from albums that cover
this period. And unlike Elected Pieces (2004-2011), there is no
remixed version, except for The Orbit (Live Mix). In return, friend
Bernd enhances the sound of his music with the principle of analog EDM
undertaken with Groundcontrol and the Victory of Mankind. The sound
range is much higher with this 100% pure analog remastering.
I cannot compare the result with the melodious approach of Last Exit
Eternity since I don't have this album. On the other hand, I recognize
the signature of Moonbooter with an opening of rhythmic hesitation
where the arpeggios and the sequences intertwine in a spheroidal
structure. This union between melody and static rhythm is caressed by
layers of violins. Grave chords fall and make resonate the moods of
music conceived for dreaming while dancing softly. This melodious
title has an intense cachet on a slow-tempo where the violin
dominates. It's part of the Cosmophonica album, as well as the
unbridled and very Trance rhythm of Like Angels. But you see, it picks
my curiosity. I remember Spirit of Time very well, and of which this
Tangerine Dream's electronic ballad approach wove a silky worm-ear in
2014. The difference is very sharp between the original and this
remastered version which spits out a better precision in adjoining
sound effects and ornaments. The sound is amplified significan t ly in
this compilation which makes me think of Dream Mixes - Ultimate
Edition from Jerome Froese. And it's in these moments of intensity
that this analog remaster extends its power of novelty to our ears. A
bit like Ian Boddy likes to do with his DiN's Index compilation
albums, Moonbooter has knitted a musical mosaic by knitting good
bridges between each title and by dosing well its different rhythmic visions.
Schnurstraks, from the album Zeitenwende, that I don't have either,
makes the right connection between the White Eagle style ballad and
the heavy rhythm of I Remembered Tomorrow. This good title from
Cosmosonic is almost identical, except that it literally has its place
in a compilation. The more we move forward in the years of production
of the targeted albums, the less difference there is in the tonality.
It then becomes a compilation album selected by the artist. The Wave,
from the album of the same name, is an EDM hymn with a floating
rhythm. The song of the Theramin i s devilishly precise here. Earth
Two, from Cosmoharmonics, fits these technoïd walks of Jean-Michel
Jarre. Satellite isn't Schwarzmond's best title. It remains however a
good electronic rock which has difficulties to extricate from its
introduction to make us hear some really good synth solos. Moonbooter
chooses not only according to the rhythms, but also of the elements
which forge the melodies. Showing the skills that make of his music a
rendezvous with his diversity. Ground Control is one of the good
titles from Groundcontrol and the Victory of Mankind. And these
explosions in order to sniff pure rock are as good here as on the
original album. Automode, from Still Alive, is one of the titles that
benefits the most of this remastering, for 6 years separate both
versions. It's a good catchy down-tempo which is tinged by a very
Tangerine Dream sound from the Miramar years. The rhythm is
delightfully bumpy and offers to our ears these percussions stolen
from the tail of a rattlesnak e , as well as a soft cosmic melody
whistled by a dreamy synth.
ELECTED PIECES 2012-2020 is a good compilation that can give you a
very fair taste of the Moonbooter universe. The sound is more
powerful! Yes, but that doesn't affect the spirit of the music, nor
the moods and melodies that make Bernd Scholl's dance rhythms much
more passionate than many artists. Intelligent dance music made with
soul and passion that is offered on CD-r and HQ download, the option I chose.

18997 Parralaxe - Breaking The Laws of Physics

It's a Synth&Sequences reader that put me on the trail of Parallaxe.
Having searched on their Bandcamp site and having listened to some
music extracts, I decided to dive and to know more about it. And I
quite enjoyed this first contact which let glimpse good possibilities.
Parallaxe is a project between two synthesist who are separated by
more than 6550 KM (4070 Miles). Arend Westra (a.k.a. Eagle) is a
musicians/producer of Walterswald, Holland, and Brian Brylow (a.k.a.
Arpegiator) is a designer of sounds, a musician and producer from
Milwaukee, USA. Both artists met virtually through the social networks
such as Facebook, Fandalism, Reverbnation and Soundcloud. The 3 last
ones being musicians' sites. In the course of their exchanges they
noticed that their musical visions fit together, in spite of the
differences in their influences and in their cultures. From where the
name of Parallaxe. A nice story! And the music now?
You will be seduc ed straightaway by Burning Planet of Ice. From the
first breaths of the synth, we notice the very sonic identity of the
duet. The harmonies are sculpted in a synth of which the fluty tone is
just rather high to seduce without breaking the wall of the stridency.
One would say a flute of Pan with an electronic tone. If the harmonies
of the synth are an easy object of seduction, the weaving of the
electronic rhythms is clearly more attractive on the other hand for
those who tasted the movements of bouncing and crisscrossed sequences
from Chris Franke. And if these electronic percussions which clicked
in the cosmic winds of Michael Garrison or, yet Jean-Michel Jarre were
a delight to your ears, this album possesses thus quite a range of
influences that will know how to find a special place in your ears.
The influences of both musicians are shared between the music of
Vangelis and Jean Michel Jarre for Eagle, while those of Arpegiator
embrace rather the kinds of Brian Eno to Hans Zimmer while passing by
Art of Noise and Stockhausen without forgetting Klaus Schulze. The
only common denominator between them is the influence of Tangerine
Dream. And we clearly feel it in the electronic effects that plunge us
in the years of Exit and White Eagle and into the movements of the
structures of rhythms which are filled with fat and juicy sequences.
Each track here offers variants inside its structure, going from a
well-fed rock which scatters the skeleton of its sequences towards
some more ambient-cosmic phases. The title-track presents also a
structure of ambient rhythm in an approach which is more ethereal that
reminds me of Free System Projekt. In particular for the fluty synth
and its vaporous harmonies floating on a sometime heavy structure with
layers of mystic mist imposing a psychotronic vision. Cosmic
Thunderstorm proposes a vision which is more in the Electronica a la
Jarre with its electronic castanets. Speaking about intrusive vampiric
melodies; Sailing on an Ast r al Sea is going to eat away at your
eardrums with a synth very acuteness of which the harmonies float like
a boat on a moderate sea. The Diamond Planet could easily be thought
of as a mellow-mix of Stratosfear while The Himiko Cloud, a beautiful
morphic down-tempo, puts us back more in the White Eagle years on a
flabby structure of rhythm such as one likes. A structure which gives
all the latitude to the synths to hang onto our ears these beautiful
memories of the Exit and the White Eagle years. The Ocean of Time is
the most ambiospherical piece of music in BREAKING THE LAWS OF PHYSICS
with a long structure rich, both in tones and in emotions, which calls
back before all this beautiful potential of Arend Westra and Brian Brylow.
Parallaxe is actually a nice surprise. And one of the beautiful
attractions of this album is doubtless this capacity to merge so many
influences in a mosaic of EM which joins admirably the bridges between
the cultural differences of both artists. It's ra ther enticing to
hear two periods of the Dream, the Virgin and Rockoon years, getting
mixed up in the cosmic essences so much nearer as those of Michael
Garrison and Jean-Michel Jarre on a bed of melodies as catchy as those
of Vangelis or Hans Zimmer, otherwise Art of Noise. To discover when a
complex and/or a too ambient EM will have eaten up the taste to listen
to something else.

SHIPPING:
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!!
