Hi All

We had a great day yesterday in Belgium at B-Wave.
I was there from 18.00 but Monique was there the whole day and had some nice talks
and a great bottle of wine she got from a costumer :-)
And I had some great talks with a lot of Musicians that where there!
A great vibe was in the building. We will add a few new releases this week
we got on B-Wave!! And some cool new release plans for the future :-)
It was cool also to say hi to Michel Huygen, Spyra, Serge Devadder Danny Budts and
all others who where there.

Didn't had time to see any of the concerts other then just a hind of Nothing but Noise!
And I really liked what I heard! Sad to have missed Spyra, I am sure that was great!
He was assisted by Rokslana and I have yet to see them together on stage.

80505 - A thousand times Part 2 - Schmoelling, Johannes

Six years after its initial release, Johannes Schmoelling (joined by
Jonas Behrens on a few tracks) brings us a second batch offering a mix
of styles but staying true to his distinct yet evocative signature sound.

Once again, piano and warm textures play an important role in the
transparent and excellent sounding outcome. Johannes typical solos
surface a couple of times but the outcome also proves less song and
melody-oriented on several spots. "A New Morning" proves a strong and
emotive piece while Mr Behrens gives his best on the rhythmic-spiced,
slightly melancholic-flavoured "A chat with my robot".

The cinematic, darker shaded "Augmented Reality" even seems to blink
back to the times of "The Rise of the Smooth Automaton" and the
1988-album "The Zoo of Tranquillity". Thereafter, emotions and
positive vibrations fly high on the gentle "The Onion Way" while more
experiment, abstract and raw aural art make up the Behrens/Schmoelling
track "March of the Thousand". Closing piece "Amitié" though proves
most touching and melodic again, simply giving the Schmoelling-sound
wings again.

Although "A Thousand Times part 2" isn’t as strong, melodic-oriented
and captivating as the 2010 album it also explores some new ways in
composition and sound. The albums audio quality and engineering is top-notch.

56575 - Pleonaesms  - Perge

Despite taking off in a psychedelic fashion, Perge has been able raise
the bar even higher in this next, fully succeeded attempt to celebrate
the analogue Berlin School sound of ‘80’s TD.

As a matter of fact, on "Pleonasms" Matthew Stringer and Graham Getty
go all the way with great sequencer combos, wavering melodic
tapestries and captivating solos drenched in live atmospherics,
bursting of life on "Calybration" and "Atemporal Dispersion" especially.

A tender moment is addressed on the beautifully rendered "Soliloquy"
with some evocative piano reproduced various excerpts of TD’s music
such as "Song of the Whale". The epilogue "Cool Sands of Vermillion"
is also the most upbeat track of the album with some cracking
sequencing along soaring and upfront leads.

As Mr Stringer already commented, the whole outcome simply captures
the vibe and excitement that existed at TD’s classic ‘80’s gigs.
"Pleonasms" simply deserves both thumbs up!

GR-229 -Let the night last forever - Walter Christian Rothe

Belgian composer Walter Christian Rothe lived in the heart of the city
of Brussels when he composed his classic album ‘Let the night last
forever". Comprising of nine parts it tells the story of his love for
the night in the city especially the loneliness of the early hours.
Today the music is as compelling as it was thirty years ago thrusting
the listener on a mood roller coaster.

The album kicks off dramatically with "Intro+Dawnfall" followed by the
beautiful reflective sound painting of "The Next Leaf" both favorites
of mine echoing Vangelis. The mood changes with the high energy
"Tea-dance" and "Sahara" (used in the Belgian film C4) leading into
the enigmatic "Death". "Radio" picks up the pace again with some great
percussive and melodic elements followed by "Verena", a lush sounding
romantic exploration.

"Hymne" creates a new atmosphere with traditional influences
accentuated with sparse and dramatic sounding tympani crashes setting
the mood for the album title track finale. The final title "Let the
night last forever's" dramatic intro and melodic qualities brings the
journey full circle. The magic blend of sounds and compositions offer
many surprises for a remarkable album.

Note: This first cd album reissue is expanded with two bonus pieces:
"KLEM Track" (from the 1986 KLEM Jubilee Mc) and the lovely
mini-symphony "El Tiempo" (from the 1989 KLEM Jubilee cd).
