Ken Martin has been composing & playing electronic music for 40 years. He's developed his own unique blend of Berlin school & space music that hearkens back to the golden age of instrumental synth music. "Berlin Impressions" is a tribute to the early Berlin electronic music scene - gone are the days of analog production - this CD is a homage to the old electronic sounds created with the latest technology.
MTA Lab is a new project from a cooperation of friends around Thomas Meier, aka TM Solver. The trio plays the basic structures live, then the recording is being edited and mastered in the studio of TM Solver. M - for Marcel Margis. T - for Thomas Meier (TM Solver). A - for Andre Danker. The three musicians were inspired to create an own project by different concerts of other electronic bands, they visited. The Album "Synthetica" resulted by lively exchange and new ideas of the trio. Quite obvious Tangerine Dream had influence on some of those ideas. This album is a new and current interpretation of the classic "Berlin School" style, added by an emphasis to groovy sounds.
The 25th release from Broekhuis, Keller & Schönwälder. Finest electronic music in style of the Berlin school with modern influences and a lot of power.
Between Interval’s long-awaited fifth studio album, Legacy, is an exploration into the vast unknown. The meticulously crafted tracks offer sonic glimpses at the wonders of the universe through excursions into electronica, spacemusic, Berlin school, and elements of dub techno; all presented with the instantly recognizable sound palette that makes each Between Interval album so special. The synth sequences and arpeggiations featured throughout the album give movement to deep ambient soundscapes, while atmospheric textures support nuanced melodies, and electro-spacial events weave their way through subharmonic bass pulses, all of which create mysterious worlds of sound that await discovery…
Live Miles consists of two parts, which were both recorded live. "Livemiles I" was recorded during the American tour of 1986, while "Livemiles II" was captured at a concert to commemorate the 750th anniversary of Berlin. As usual with TD, the audience had no clue of what they were going to experience while attending one of those concerts. During that era it was rather common for TD to improvise much of the music on the spot. So when you listen to a live record of TD you mostly hear new music that isn't available as a studio version. The extended pieces displayed on Live Miles cover many musical moods and textures throughout the playing time of almost half an hour: from slow and haunting, through up-tempo and uplifting; from driving and percussive, to grand and majestic. It's all present on both tracks!
