New Arrivals from Groove Unlimited Label

It’s been a while since we’ve brought in a big batch of new stuff from the Groove label to the Hypnos Store. Not only do we have these new items listed below, but we also have a lot of re-stocks on the Groove label page.

Ron Boots, Frank Dorittke, Harold van der Heijden – Derby!
(Groove category)
(Price: $13.99)
“This album offers the listener the wonderful chance of listening to a powerful live performance by these three musicians, with a recital including some specially hot versions from themes of well-known albums. Perfectly identified with one another and providing the music with a musical complexity typical of a studio recording, they play nine themes with a powerful strength, ranging from Space Sequencer Music to Synth-Pop to Symphonic Rock. The memorable concert the music in the CD comes from was held on September 5th, 2009 in the British city of Derby. Most of the music here is dynamic, with the sequencers developing fast rhythms or average-speed ones, and the support of a very well chosen percussion. The melodies evoke the sense of adventure in several passages, as well as epic airs, romantic atmospheres and blades of melancholy. In short, this is an album with a high rating which will be really appreciated by the followers of these musical trends.”

Create – Reflections from the Inner Light
(Groove category)
(Price: $13.99)
“In Reflections from the Inner Light, we find an artist who has a great skill in the musical technique as well as the necessary technology. By means of a very successfully achieved orchestra of virtual analogue synthesizers, Create weaves a collection of melodic pieces, fresh, lively. The style, bold and avantgarde as it is, is situated on the border between Space Music and the most strong areas of Synth-Pop.”

Create – We Live by the Machines
(Groove category)
(Price: $13.99)
“A slow building structure is utilized to generate moody harmonics that gradually introduce melodic content as the music accrues additional riffs and achieves a delightful density. The electronics are generally cyclic patterns that run for periods, establishing a mounting tension, until lead riffs slide into play, their twinkling notes providing an engaging focal thread as the tunes unfurl. The foundational harmonics constantly evolve, too, attaining their own penetrating charisma. Percussion is unnecessary for this music. The pulsating nature of the structure supplies adequate propulsion as things surge along to dazzling climaxes. (Okay, one track features rhythmic, but it is little more than a ticking beat immersed in a very mechanical murkiness.) These compositions pursue the concept of mankind living in tandem with machinery, not in some clash of polarized cultures, but the comfortable coexistence we all experience everyday. The electronic nature of the instruments tends to exemplify this union, but the tunes possess a further expression of the point in their sinuous balance of artificiality and humanization. The melodies are highly organic, very fluid. Very satisfying.”

Create – From Earth to Mars
(Groove category)
(Price: $13.99)
From Earth To Mars is an oasis of sequences, fat analogue synth solos and pads, effects, space-atmospheres and gentle electronic rhythms. The music is long-stretched with a lot of emphasis on details…

Gert Emmens – The Nearest Faraway Place Vol. 3
(Groove category)
(Price: $13.99)
“The Nearest Faraway Place Vol. 3 is the last part of this cosmic trilogy that the Dutch synthesist began in 2008. Once again, Gert Emmens covers his sound galaxy by a pleiad of synth lines with his unique tones equal to his gears conception, where plentiful strata wrap of their foggy cosmic intertwine sequences lines. Sequences, sometimes hesitating sometimes biting but always constant, which cross a cosmic tale under foggy steam synth lines and pleasant weeping solos. A musical universe signed Gert Emmens with a beautiful complicity between analogue and digital. A sound universe where the borders of imagination belong as much to the listener as its designer.”

Nattefrost – Dying Sun/Scarlet Moon
(Groove category)
(Price: $13.99)
“The fine electronics Bjorn Jeppesen aka Nattefrost presents on Dying Sun/Scarlet Moon album are of a groovy but also spatial nature. The album offers a nice assemblage of attractive sequencer patterns, contemporary sounds and textures, all glued together into catchy instrumental compositions which set things in motion from the first tracks on.”
