Rapoon - Recurring (Dream Circle)
Rapoon - Recurring (Dream Circle) Quantity in Basket: None
Code: soleil03
Price: $13.99
Rapoon is Robin Storey, a founder and former member of Zoviet France. Over the last four years he has released four full-length CDs, a double CD, two 7 inch singles and a DAT (Digital Audio Tape), and has contributed to several compilations. Those familiar with the music of his former group will be surprised by the different directions he takes in this solo project, although echoes of Zoviet France can frequently be heard. Rapoonís music is notable not only for its sheer beauty and mesmerizing textures, but also for the subtle yet distinctive Indian rhythms and atmospheres that color itís palate. Itís music that fits comfortably with ethno-ambient label mates Muslimgauze and O Yuki Conjugate. Making a perfect fit with the music inside, the intricate and haunting paintings and illustrations adorning "Recurring Dream Circle" complete this attractive release. As with all of the previous Rapoon releases, and indeed those of Zoviet France, all of the artwork and package design was created by the artist. In 1991 Death of Vinyl Entertainment (Toronto, Canada) was actively supporting Newcastle, Englandís Zoviet France. DOVE released "Shadow, Thief of the Sun" by Zoviet France and put together a North American tour, their first on this side of the Atlantic. DOVE later released the first CD by Zoviet France spin-offs Horizon 222, and issued the first solo album by Rapoon CD. It was called "Dream Circle". Although it was well received by critics and fans alike, it made an unexpected and premature exit from record store shelves, following the untimely demise of the record label. It has since become a highly sought-after collectors item. This Soleilmoon release contains three reworked tracks from the original release along with original new material, thus the name "Recurring Dream Circle".
