21705 Roswell Incident - Trapped part one

Same as on their previous albums Koen and Jan Buytaert chose to
compose lengthy electronic pieces for their new project “Trapped”.
This time around, the release is a well-deserved factory-pressed cd on
Wool-E Discs imprint Belgian NeuMusic. Still present is the highly
cinematic, mystic-angled current in their attentively crafted, often
improvised atmospheric music gently transporting the listener in
spacious dimensions and alternate realities beyond. The outcome, still
derived from and inspired by classic ‘70’s Berlin School music (of
Schulze especially), evolves gradually and retains an introspective
yet reflective character most of the time while the duo incorporates
various sets of mellow sequencer patterns over time. The latter become
more upfront in the outro section of the 33-minute first track and
about halfway on the next.
A kaleidoscope of alienating, slightly ominous spaces set off on the
43-minute ambient journey following nex t. This dense aural cocoon
-some passages reminded me Wave World- is smoothly set in motion after
eight minutes, whereafter the morphing soundscape opens up gradually.
Further spatial sound design, some captivating sets of minimalist
sequences patterns as well as a brief solo kick in on the more dynamic
second half to both hypnotic and splendour effect.It makes an
excellent outro for this very well accomplished mixed and produced work of art.
All in all, “Trapped” offers music that naturally continues the band
thread of their previous releases but takes it to a higher level
simultaneously. To get the best out of it, headphones are recommended.

gr-132 Timman, Johan - Trip into the body (Dutch TXT)

In 1981, ik was toen 17, was ik met mijn toenmalige vrinedinnetje op
de brommer naar het Rotterdamse zuidplein gereden om te winkelen. Bij
de V&D en de Hema aangekomen, hoorde ik ineens geweldige muziek
klinken en daar was hij, Johan Timman zat daar op een podium in het
tussenstuk tussen de winkels en gaf een optreden. Ik ben blijven
hangen tot het einde en ik ben heel blij dat andere mensen hier
opnamen van hebben gemaakt toen, want ik had die mogelijkheid toen
niet. Nu, decennia later, blijkt toch wel dat ik getuige was van iets
unieks. Een artiest, die tijdloze muziek heeft gemaakt, die nu nog
steeds zeer wordt gewaardeerd. Dank hiervoor! En uiteraard heb ik ook
die LP meteen gekocht. gr-132

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!!
