[Groove] E-News 1261 13th November 2021
Hello All.

Some bad news and please give all your positive thoughts this week to one of the most hardworking and involved people I know in our Electronic Scene. Yesterday I got the news that Sylvia Sommerfeld has been put in a coma to give her body rest and time to recover from a few operations she had. She has always been a big frontrunner for Electronic Music in Germany with her Schallwell organisation!! Those who pray, let youre prayers go towards her, and all others send positive thoughts to her!! She is one of the most warm and gentle people I know and like I said before she is one of the driving forces for our EM in Germany!

Hello 2022

In 2020 (a long time ago I now we had planned Phase 3 with the  brilliance of Harald Grosskopf and Ian Boddy with Ron Boots on stage. 

But due to Covid we had to cancel this, now if all can go through we will have a special concert on the 30th of December at the planetarium with Hello 2022.

But due to Covid and Brexit Ian Boddy decided not to join us this time, but we have a very cool other musican to replace him. And this is none other then Steve Baltes!!

For the very first time these three musicians Harald Grosskopf and Stve Baltes with Ron Boots on stage. will come together in this formation to bring to you a musical frenzy that will Rock the Planetarium in Bochum!!.

Groove Unlimited together with Schallwende presents these three
"live on stage" on the30th of December 2021 at the Planetarium Bochum.

... or at the box office in the planetarium and / or in the well-known
VVK offices throughout Germany.

B-Wave Festival 2021 - November 27th - CC Muze.

The B-Wave Festival will take place in the new buildings of CC Muze - it's still in the same city as before but is located now in the breathtaking minery buildings of "De Luchtfabriek". An extremely suited place for the festival. Yes, that's the same location as where "Cosmic Nights" took place 4 years ago but now has a nice modern theater (with 10.2 surround acoustics), a smaller theater "The Black Box", De Luchtfabriek machinery hall and a large "ballroom" hall.
And we as Groove will have a stall there with a special pre-order discount on all products!! Order to pick this order up there and you get a 10% discount on that order!!

Kebu - Urban Dreams - cd - 88692

Kebu is a keyboardist, composer and producer from Finland who creates new instrumental, melodic music exclusively with analog synthesizers. His music is not only characterized by the skillful handling of these, but also by a live performance that captivates the audience - a phenomenon that has attracted over 70 million views and fans from all over the world on his YouTube channel.

Kebu was awarded the prize for the best artist at the German Schallwelle Musikpreis in 2018. The artist's third studio album, which was created in a time of seclusion and isolation, deals with dreams - both sleep and daydreams. The new album celebrates both power ballads and soft rock beats from the eighties - essentially the music that surrounded and influenced Kebu in his youth. Still, it doesn't sound nostalgic or silly, because Kebu creates the music in a way as if the world had never moved in this decade. Kebu is once again pushing the boundaries of what is possible with analog synthesizers - similar to Kebu’s earlier releases, “Urban Dreams” was recorded exclusively with analog synthesizers and analog drum machines.

Kebu composed, played and mixed the music himself.
Stefan Erbe - Serbenity - cd - 79916

This appears to be Stefan Erbe's first true full-size ambient album. The 10 tracks spanned a wonderful detailed sound into a complete story of his "Serbernity-World". A fascinating journey between lost places and virtual images. A real cinematic journey for your mind.

Three legacy albums in one year - we've never had that before? But we live in unusual times. Any live activities are taboo at first, creativity then seeks out its outlet elsewhere. Experiences that lead to musical inspiration abound. The location depicted on the cover could be an abandoned concert hall and an allusion to the current situation - but it doesn't have to be.

On the other hand, some also seek out the quiet of such 'lost places' in order to come to terms with themselves again. We don't know if that was necessary, but without a doubt 'Serbenity' is an album that exudes satisfaction with its own work at every moment - the title alludes to the English word for serenity. On the other hand, 'relaxed' is exactly the style that Stefan Erbe celebrates on his latest work: The journey towards ambient / atmospheric sounds, which was already indicated on the 'Breathe', was consistently continued. You will look in vain for anything danceable, and other well-known heritage sounds are also used so sparingly that they look more like a signature that a painter places in the corner of his work of art.

'Serbenity' is an album that I will remember as a complete work, less because of individual tracks. It looks like it was created in the flow of a single session. But every session has its end, even if that is only given by the playing time of the medium. The last track 'Final Arena' doesn't seem like a closing point to me, more like a preview of what's to come. If Stefan Erbe's albums were a sequel series, I would say he built in a little 'cliffhanger' here. Let's take that positively as the promise that the story will go on and that we can follow it with us. Anyway, I'm looking forward to the next chapter ...

Przemyslaw Rudz - Martian Anthology - cd - 25388

The Mars anthology is Przemyslaw Rudz's latest CD dedicated to Mars, which is experiencing a real scientific siege this year. On its surface are up to three autonomous rovers - Curiosity, Perseverance and Zhurong, searching for traces of life that may have existed long ago in the planet's rivers, lakes and oceans. However, the direct inspiration for composing the album came from reading the short stories contained in the Polish SF anthology with the simple title "Mars". The book was edited by Wojtek Sedenko, one of the most prominent animators in the Polish community of authors and fans of SF literature.

So here we have seventeen long compositions that are musical illustrations of so many stories. An album full of space, mystery, atmosphere and sound experiments, but also well-known harmonies that are characteristic of the composer. In terms of sound, as the author of the disc himself states, it is above all the Korg Wavestate, a small synthesizer with great possibilities, which can also be heard in the huge dynamics, the wide stereo stage and its depth.
