Profile

Dear valued customer, I hope you will be happy to know that all proceedings of sales of my items will be spent on musical software. Thus by buying from me, you will indirectly fund developers of audio production software.

Money I have received so far have for instance been used to buy software from independent developers like CL-Projects, Synth Magic, BigTick and Homegrown Sounds, too mention just a few.

My main interests lie in new wave/synthpop and ambient-techno, but I listen to all sorts of electronic and progressive music. My favourite records of all time are something like this.

To define Progressive House in one track to me that is Spooky's High On Hedonism Mix.

I got tricked into buying this album, as the record store had put a note on it that it was by The Aphex Twin under alias.

Mind Weaver is Source Direct at their best, simplistic but clear and effective in making a lasting statement.

posted a review of Art Of Trance - Voice Of Earth. 8 months ago
I really do like this release, I find it much more in line with golden age trance of 1993, than the trance scene of 1999. It is not banging hard psytrance, neither cheesy lightweight vocal trance, but pleasant well produced mid-tempo melodic trance.

Music from the forthcoming film "Io" that was to be shown to live accompaniment on the Pink Floyd tour MLO undertook later in 1994.
Scott Edward - Distant Horizons
posted a review of Scott Edward - Distant Horizons. 9 months ago
This album is more Berlin School than Ambient Techno, lots of synth soloing backed by simple grooves, closer to Klaus Schulze than Autechre.
Symbiosis - Numinous
posted a review of Symbiosis - Numinous. 9 months ago
I wonder if the EP is maybe called "Numinous" because the rhythm box intro of Concepcions II is possibly sampled from the opening of Gary Numan's "Remind Me To Smile"

Good stuff, not groundbreaking, but for those into the Planet Dog et al sound it is quality not to be missed.

"Dreamlight (Green Mix)" sounds a lot like Children Of The Bong on Planet Dog, and this excellent album would have fitted well on that seminal UK label IMO.
System 7 Featuring Ultra Naté - Altitude
posted a review of System 7 Featuring Ultra Naté - Altitude. 9 months ago
"Altitude (Paradox) (Deep Mix)" with Ultra Nate sounds like a completely different track than the Altitude album song. Had it not been better to release it as a new single called "Paradox" ?
System 7 - Depth Disco

More or less the blueprint for the System 7 sound, they have not strayed much from this over their 30 years career.

posted a review of System 7 / Derrick May - Mysterious Traveller. 9 months ago
Pleasant deep Detroit techno, timeless music, this collection hasn't aged much in thirty years. The only track a bit out of place is System 7's own E-Merge.
The Cut (2) - Shadow Talks
posted a review of The Cut (2) - Shadow Talks. 9 months ago
Solid synth driven new wave, good songs and interesting arrangements. Had The Cut been an English band, I am certain they would have enjoyed similar success as Simple Minds at that time.

Forferdelig trist at Helge Gaarder skulle gå bort så tidlig, han ville ha feiret 70 år i 2023. Han var en bauta i norsk nyrock, og skrev bra tekster.

En skikkelig "Opp" plate, sånn skal det låte !
Hadde Cirkus Modern vært et engelsk band, ville man ha skrevet bøker om denne skiva nå.

En real nedtur etter Kjøtt's klassiker "Op."
Presence er stampende og teatralsk, klarer ikke å ta av.
Heldigvis tok Gaarder seg sammen, og kom tilbake i form med "Cirkus Modern".

The Cut (2) - Silent Movies
posted a review of The Cut (2) - Silent Movies. 10 months ago
Plata er for veik, halvparten er "depp": "Silent Movies" "Now & Then" "Invaded" & "Dance On Glass"
At sistnevnte ble valgt som single er ikke lett å fatte. "Red Light" er låten som skulle vært valgt som single.

Replacing We Have Explosive, with We Have Explosive Part 2 (of the CD single) makes a massive upturn in the listening enjoyment !
Tournesol - Kokotsu
posted a review of Tournesol - Kokotsu. 10 months ago
1994 was such a diverse year in electronic music, things changed month to month: enter the year as ambient techno and leave it as drum and bass.
As I remember this was released early in 1994, and indeed it is an ambient techno choice release.
Amorphous Androgynous - Tales Of Ephidrina
posted a review of Amorphous Androgynous - Tales Of Ephidrina. 10 months ago
The album is OK, but feels a bit dated now, a sample collage that is rough around the edges. They made giant strides releasing Lifeforms less than a year later, that is a polished diamond.

Too much of a compilation, rather than a journey when stuff like Dave Clarke's "Graphite" is forced on it.

Can We Change The Future (Dub Plate Mix) is built around Future Sound Of London's Cascade single (1993).

posted a review of The Black Dog - Music For Adverts (And Short Films). 10 months ago
An album for those that thought Echo Mike and the Bolts were the best things about Bytes and Spanners.
I wonder if "Dumb & Dumber" could be a dig at Handley and Turner, who responded with "Not For Threes" a year later ?
Midge Ure - Pure
posted a review of Midge Ure - Pure. 10 months ago
This is like nails scratching a blackboard. dull predictable "state of the art" production, lackluster songs. I just can't believe it is the same Midge Ure that was involved with classic Ultravox album's like Rage In Eden and Lament.

Superb release, the cleanliness of Depeche Mode mixed up with the roughness of Nitzer Ebb. HoHoKam should have been Numa's star act.

A different Larry Loeber than the New York person, this is most certainly Numan's friend Nicky Robson in disguise.

If Currie was to resurrect an Ultravox MK2 song, I wish he had left "Lament" alone, and rather chosen "Paths And Angles". An excellent b-side showcasing his keyboard and viola skills.

Ammonium sulfide rather than Sulfuric Acid. Abhorrent music for the lad mag 90's generation. I spent money buying this album on the back of Code's excellent releases of the early 90's. What ever happened to the likely lads?
