Gorgeous mood music. Very light, breezy, moody; definitely has a rainy summer night vibe throughout. Also has just a slight touch of warm synthesizer tones that always sound amazing in music like this.

Great stuff.

Gorgeous electro-soundscapes, here. The tracks really have a lot of creativity and uniqueness to them, and every one is a winner.

Nice little album!

Now this is the stuff! Beautiful small group sounds in the jazz-funk/groove vein. Very stylish, elegant and grooving! Mayborn provides some lush compositions here to nod your head to, and any one of these tunes could have been a standout on a jazz-funk ... See full review

Sublime. Mr. Gerard does a fine, fine job of crafting some beautiful and elegant soundscapes here. This is excellent music to meditate to. Burn some incense and relax, you will have a wonderful experience when this album is playing on your turntable! :)

Absolutely sublime Italian easy listening LP. The tracks are beautiful, mysterious, mellow, and Paolo Quintilio's voice will entrance you, even if you don't understand what he's saying (as he sings in Italian).

Just lovely stuff here. Rizzati is a name ... See full review

Another great mixed-bag library here, this time from the esteemed Southern label. Side A is a mix of different styles, with some folk-style, western-themed, some Indian music and more. Side B has some short stuff - fanfares, harp sounds, comedy links - ... See full review
posted a review of Sauveur Mallia - Music Force II. over 3 years ago
Wow. This is quite brilliant stuff, man! Basically, this is Sauveur Mallia's take on the Miles Davis sound of the mid-'80s. Plenty of synths and electronic instrumentation, yet grounded with the colourful trumpet playing of Eric Lalanne. It's really a ... See full review

Absolute class electronic grooves here. It's obvious that these 2 composers have a real touch with electronic instruments, and they have used some beautiful and soft tones here. That said, it is still a mostly funky LP with some great grooves. You will ... See full review

Lovely bossa and soft mood music LP. As the title says, this is romantic music, but very much in the vein of Italian soundtrack and mood music styles. Very pretty stuff. As with most late-80s, early-90s electronic music LPs, you get some great synth ... See full review

Wow! Lovely religious-themed and classical music depicting different cathedrals throughout the world. The pieces here are incredibly haunting and very, very atmospheric. It also sounds a bit electronic to me, but I could be wrong. The music on side A is ... See full review
posted a review of Spiga Band - Energy. over 3 years ago
Ah, the sound of late-80s, early-90s electronic music. There is nothing else quite like it, especially in the library music world. The synths are lush, full of emotion and (much to some people's dismay), digital!

Once again, this is just lovely stuff ... See full review

Bravo, Fenton, Lehar and Leach! This is one magical album of beautiful French and Italian music. I have no clue why it's incredibly cheap right now. I guess maybe it's because the album doesn't contain much in the way of funky beats? It has a few, don't ... See full review

Great stuff! Graham Todd is definitely becoming one of my favorite, "lesser-known" composers out there. He's done some fine work with the LP, "He Who Dares", also on De Wolfe, and he does fine work here as well. Not just fine work, but absolutely ... See full review

Very groovy late-80s synth-pop creations. The music uses a lot of quick, catchy and repetitive motifs, with entirely electronic instrumentation. The end result is a space-age sounding blend of funky and groovy music that you can only find in late-80s ... See full review
