Hello All

Great news for all PERU fans, the new CD is on the brink of release.

Peru - Return (cd)
PERU the story so far:

PERU may seem an odd name for a synthesizer music band, however, it is
not named after the South American country as you may believe. In
fact, the band name was formed by taking the two first letters of the
founder members PEter Kommers and RUud van Es in 1979.

In 1981, they released their debut album ‘Macchu Picchu’ on which Rob
Papen appeared as a guest musician. The first album was recorded live
on a 2-track recorder.
Macchu Picchu caught the attention of Dutch radio stations and a then
a bit later on, Peter, Ruud, and Rob went on to form a 2nd group
called Nova which then led to the number 1 hit ‘Aurora’ in the
Netherlands and Belgium charts of April 1982.

In the same year, they also produced the PERU ‘Constellations’ album
which was recorded semi-live on 4-track in their own HNS Studio,
situated in a little basement studio found in the heart of Dordrecht.
By the year 1983, the album ‘Continents’ was written and recorded on
an 8-track tape recorder in HNS studio.

The album ‘Points of the Compass’ followed in 1986 and was also
recorded, and mixed in the HNS studio, but this time on a 24-track.
Then the albums ‘Forlian’ in 1988 and ‘Moon 1991’ were recorded and
included a new guest musician and composer ‘Jos van den Dungen’.

In 1988 PERU remixed their song ‘Africa’ from the 1983 album
‘Continents’ and released a 12-inch remix version of it. The remix of
Africa went on to become a number 1 hit in Austria in the same year.

‘The Prophecies’ in 1993 was the last PERU album which was very
different from all the other albums. But the story of PERU doesn’t end there….

Now 25 years later PERU’s new album ‘The Return’ is released!.
In 2015 the recording sessions started in earnest with Ruud and Rob at
the helm and in contrast with the first PERU album which was played
live using hardware on a 2-track tape recorder, this album has been
fully produced using music software.

Enjoy the new PERU album!
Rob & Ruud

The CD will be in arojnd Friday.
We will start shipping direct after we received it.!!

 And 2 new TD products to be released next week.

Tangerine Dream - Sessions 4
THE SESSIONS IV EP contains instant live compositions (about 65 min of
music) from the current TD line-up Thorsten Quaeschning, Ulrich
Schnauss and Hoshiko Yamane. The first track PERSEPSJONSTRANSFORMASJON
was recorded from the OYA FESTIVALEN in OSLO, Norway. It was Tangerine
Dream's first show ever in Norway and they were welcomed like good old
friends. The crowd was very much on fire and inspired the band for a
wonderful piece of music.

The second track FOUR DEGREES PARALLAX was recorded during their
performance at the INTERNET FESTIVAL in PISA, Italy. TD performed at
the famous Teatro Verdi - very close to the Leaning Tower of Pisa -
and mesmerized an especially very young audience.

The band members are very much enjoying their new respectively revived
concept of performing a so-called real time composition session at the
end of their concerts. We hope that you will enjoy these spontaneous
and exceptional live tracks - inspired by the location and a great
audience at the same time.

music of Tangerine Dream. The 12 sheets can only represent a small

71940 Moonbooter - Groundcontrol and the v.o.m.

A reverberant shadow cut into small parts bring "First Encounter" to a
world of distortions and of unknown dialects. Welcome to the new
Moonbooter's bend! In a sound envelope fortified by a 24-bit presence,
Bernd Scholl offers an album of unheard-of power. Musical and animated
by rhythms of lead which order our feet to move, “Groundcontrol and
the Victory of Mankind” is not really different from the previous
albums of Moonbooter in terms of the compositions' structure. It is
rather its sound envelope, strongly embellished by analog synths and
sequences, which brings us to another level of listening definitely
more enjoyable for the ears. The EDM now has a soul in this last
album, very impressive I must admit, from Moonbooter. If you like
loud, precise and incisive sounds and tones, you're in the right place here!
"Ground Control" pleases from the start my ears. Theatrical, its
introduction is fixed in layers of anesthetic violins. If perc ussions
dance gently, a line of bass pulsations is pulsating with tremolos in
its echo. Arpeggios hatch like twigs in flames and forge a fragile
line of invading melody that glitters with arrangements a bit Arabian.
And then after the point of 2:22 minutes, the rhythm of "Ground
Control" becomes slow, heavy and powerful with an intense bludgeoning
from the percussions as well as the addition of dense and opaque
layers whose slow movements caress a violence repressed in the oneiric
approach of these cinematic arrangements. Intense and delicious!
"Lucid Dream" puts us immediately in the aim of this new album of
Moonbooter, either a powerful EDM with an analog flavor whose
influences stem from the Berlin School. It's at the level of the
spasmodic dance of the sequences that the Berliner style jumps to the
ears. Subsequently, our friend Bernd envelopes this convulsive rhythm
of a series of reverberations in the shape of floating and guttural S,
adding so a Mephistophelic vision to a mu s ic which becomes heavy,
powerful and catchy like an EDM sculpted in analog flavors. "The end
of Eternity" is a down-tempo supported by a bass line which throbs
sneakily with a threat of explosion somewhere. In fact, it's these fat
and resonant chords which create this climate of possible overflow.
Synth lines try to add a harmonious vision which blurs in this musical
indecision. Its 1st part is more honeyed with a nice swarm of sound
effects, while the 2nd one is heavier and pounded by percussions that
crack the eardrums. This is a very different down-tempo from the
Moonbooter repertoire. "Train de L'espace" is really like that it
should sounds. The rhythm, and the melody while being there, are doing
very Jarre, Magnetic Fields Pt. 2, in a more boosted way. The
sequences twirl with spasmodic jolts and, together with the
percussions, they draw the race of a train that is even more realistic
with these synth pads colored of charcoal mist. The rhythmic
modification is seductive in its fluid and melodic approach. A very
good title that combines dance music from the French and Düsseldorf Schools.
"Moondust" follows with a very good slow-tempo well framed by the echo
effects of the slamming percussions and a bass line which throbs like
in the most lascivious moments of Massive Attack or Sigur Ros. The
synth layers are snoring in this rather suggestive pattern and the
bass fills the pores of our skin in a decor filled of orchestrations
which turn into beautiful dreamlike solos. NASA voices remind us of
the purpose of the title. Each album of Moonbooter hides a beautiful
pearl; "Moondust" is that of “Groundcontrol and the Victory of
Mankind”. "Beyond the Black Door" is another solid track which evolves
from its heavy shell of mid-tempo for hypnotized Zombies to ambient
and cosmic Berlin School-inspired phases, while "Particles (Bridge)"
navigates in purely in those ambio-cosmic spheres. "Dance with Captain
F" is a very dance style track which is filled by Arcade g ames sounds
effects and by succulent percussion effects which blow like gas bags
bursting sharply. The rhythm is super-catchy with jerky jolts from the
sequencer and a nervous flow of electronic percussions, whereas some
Kraftwerk-like synth riffs hook a smile of astonishment with this a
Break-Dance-like structure that breathes the Dance Music of the 90's.
"Come with Me" is very intense at this level. A true hymn of dance
that forces our legs to activate. "Infinite State of Mind" offers a
two-step structure. If the movement of the sequencer activates a
rippling rhythm roll, the synth pads give some slack to the body. The
percussions are as good as the arrangements are deliciously slowing.
In the end, it gives a half-slow and heavy rhythm loaded with a bank
of sound effects which arouse the pleasures of listening. "The Victory
of Mankind" revives the absolute charms of “Groundcontrol and the
Victory of Mankind” with a rhythmic structure that hops like a cavalry
in harmony with its v i ctory of the music. The synth creates zones of
breathtaking melodies with airs that can be whistled easily. It's
beautiful and extremely catchy. This earworm overhangs grave chords
which add a titanic dimension to the cosmic ambiences whose
stroboscopic tweeting effects are no less addictive and seductive. A
powerful title announcing a final, "Last Encounter", modeled on the
opening of this powerful work of EDM from Moonbooter which is enhanced
of those flavors of Berlin School analog style.

GR-254 - Golden Peacock - P'Faun 

"Thanks a lot to Dutch music journalist Paul Rijkens for the positive
review of P'Faun's album "The Golden Peacock" for his (print) magazine
I/O Pages!!!! ^_^
Here's an English translation (provided by Paul himself! :-D )

The Golden Peacock (GROOVE UNLIMITED) When I reviewed the EP sp'roque
of P'Faun in iO Pages 149, my last sentence was: "This tastes for more
than one ep." This wish has come true because here is a complete CD,
published on the Groove Unlimited label. P'Faun originates from the
duo Betzler & Brückner. Together with guitarist Sammy David they form
P'Faun. The trio creates an interesting mix between Berlin School
electronic music and rock. Say the more progressive side of electronic
music. It is not for nothing that their music is sometimes compared
with the albums Force Majeure and Cyclone by Tangerine Dream. The link
to progrock is underlined by the fact that drummer Thomas Betzler was
in the prog band P'Cock with whom he made two excellent albums in the
early eighties. On "The Golden Peacock" we hear an adaptation of the
P'Cock song House In The Storm of their second album In'Cognito. It
has a brilliant pulsating sequence, driving drums and fine guitar
solos. The link to prog also appears well in So Ham, where Cilia di
Ponte (vocals) and Doris Hach (cello) collaborate. I can imagine the
comparison with Tangerine Dream from the late seventies when I listen
to King Kong where guitarist and bassist Gerd Weyhing plays on.
Sometimes people go even further than prog: slightly funky in Number
Five (Is Still Alive) with guitarist Harald Nies, something modern in
P'Quences (with our fellow Dutchman René van der Wouden) and a 1980s
atmosphere in Blue Pearls, Part Two. In short: these gentlemen have
made a varied CD that is able to rock out at times.

Paul Rijkens ."
