IAN BODDY & PARALLEL WORLDS - Exit Strategy CD

Latest collaboration from the UK synth music pioneer Ian Boddy and Greek synth maestro Bakis Sirros, who's previously released two great albums on DiN, Ian's label, gives us an album that's both dark and beautiful, accessible yet complex and highly engaging from start to finish. For those who need to know such things, it's a predominantly analogue affair, but if you're thinking what I think you're thinking, then don't - this is innovative and accessible music of great quality and changes on every listen. It opens with just under five minutes of sinuous synth flowing over a tide of Sirros' darkly hammering rhythms, the effect both claustrophobic and absolutely riveting as the textures rumble, soar and drive along, all highly charged with the all-important sense of emotion and feel that runs through Boddy's music like lifeblood and is the reason why his electronica stands head and shoulders above most. This segues right into the 8 minutes of "Impresario" where, after a slowly rising intro of great electronic depth, the electro-percussive rhythms shudder, wheeze and hammer as this mid-paced river of rhythm underpins the myriad layers of space synths, darkly textured electronics, distant resonant fx and then this almost melodic top layer of string-like, almost middle-eastern sounding synths that changes shape as the rhythms also change shape and the whole picture goes from dark shudder to open-ended gallop, only to come to an abrupt stop as the piece suddenly drops the rhythm altogether and enters this haze of cosmic light, only then for those juddering beats to return, add the melody lines and drive to what you'd think would be the finale but then the musicians take you by surprise and give you a celestial, rhythm-free outflow that's absolutely riveting. The near 7 minute "Soliloquy" could well be what an other-worldly Vangelis would have used throughout the "Bladerunner" film had it been a much darker offering, and the result is something that echoes the beauty of that work yet here retains the element of crunch, of solid structure and almost menacing intent. At just over 7 minutes, "Entwined" is one of those deep, dark, shifting, sliding, flowing worlds of multi-textural blackness that's infused with shafts of light just to let you know that there is hope on the other side of the universe through which you're travelling as the assorted electronic layers give you drift and drive in a rhythm-free environment. As is the case on the whole album, without a break, it's right into the 10 minute title track and from the end strains of the cosmos unfolding, the duo provide a track that chops and changes throughout, from galloping darkly percussive rhythms and undercurrents to top layers that are positively joyful, and all point in between. They manage to mix melody, rhythm, exploration, a river of glissando-like top layers and more, to come up with something that's as unnerving as it is breathtaking, never standing still, always changing its path and, almost no matter how many times you listen to it, completely unpredictable - yet it works, thanks to the passion and feelings that they inject into what, in anyone else's hands, would be an unstructured set of unfinished ideas. The 5 minute "Hidden" is another multi-layered space-synths track but really solid stuff with that all-pervading darkness running through its depths. Finally, there's the near 10 minute "Return" which starts in a kind of richly menacing, orchestrally shimmering space thunder, as assorted sounds and percussives rattle around, ushering in this enormous sounding sea of bass synth texture, flowing oceans of strings and a solid, seriously ethereal, expansive soundscape that rises up then almost disappears as a new set of sounds comes from the distance before the previous landscape returns, only this time more distant, but growing louder by the minute as it ploughs a path of ever strengthening menace. These waves of layers and rhythms enter and return, mixing space and drive, texture and melody, rhythm and cosmos, all in one mighty, flowing finale.

It turns out that much of the music was played by Sirros and "sculpted" by Boddy, who added what I call the "top layers" and the glissando-like textures, so it's a collaboration but, in keeping with what Ian does, something quite extraordinary.

I used to review tons and tons of synth music releases, but they lost their flavour when everything became just an endless sea of recycling Tangerine Dream and Klaus Schulze - with anything on DiN and anything with Ian Boddy's name attached to it, you can be sure that every release will be something new, an adventure, something exciting - you may not always like every single album, but you'll always appreciate the work of a true pioneer who refuses to conform - even on an album such as this collaboration where he's integral in the sound and construction of a guy like Sirros' template, it hits the spot to perfection.

As of today, my first release as LooneyJetman is available on iTunes and thanks to Songcast it will soon be available on Amazon too.

The track is called "All your base are belong to us". It is a dark and heavy club tune and gets its name from the infamous mistranslation in the Sega Genesis game Zero Wing. Three mixes of the track are available, including a short edit for radio and an 8 minute mix for clubs.

I have also released the track through Bandcamp.com, for anyone who likes their music to be free of DRM.

We have a new album out on sep 13. Critically acclaimed power/prog metal. Our 5. album. Released by Nightmare records.

The new album, is the most beautiful
album the band has yet emerged with. The songwriting, which has
always been the core of the "Anubis Gate sound", stands stronger
than ever. This time emphasized by the fact that Henrik Fevre, who
was largely responsible for writing the vocals on the previous
albums, gets to sing the songs he wrote himself, injecting the
emotion and meaning into the lyrics that he had in mind when writing
them. Once again produced by Kim Olesen and Jacob Hansen and with a
stunningly great mix done by the latter, this album brims with the
twin guitar attack of Jesper M Jensen and Kim Olesens guitars, the
rich emotion of Henrik Fevres voice, the rich soundscapes of Kim
Olesens keyboard work and the dream rhythm section of Morten
Sørensens drumming and Henrik Fevres bassplaying. Anubis Gate isn't
an album that's about endless keyboard/guitar unison soloing. It's
all about the songs. From the classic Anubis Gate opener "Hold Back
Tomorrow" to the melancholic, but very crunchy, "The Re-formation
show. From the fast aggressive "Desiderio Omnibus" to the epic
"World In A Dome". From the surprising "Oh My Precious Life" to the
atmospheric "River" this album displays Anubis Gate at the top of
their game while in no way rehashing the last two albums. Quite to
the contrary this albums sees the band taking new turns whilst
retaining the core of all the albums that came before.

TRACKLIST
1. Hold Back Tomorrow
2. The Re-Formation Show
3. Facing Dawn
4. World in a Dome
5. Desiderio Omnibus
6. Oh My Precious Life
7. Golden Days
8. Telltale Eyes
9. River
10. Circumstanced

Previous releases:

The Detached.
Andromeda Unchained
A Perfect Forever
Purification
And in the end, the love you take is equal to the love you make.

Hello Kvr peoples...

I've post on my bandcamp page the first track of my coming Mini-EP (two dubstep tracks in different moods+one electro dirty track).

http://setfan.bandcamp.com/

This first track features some low heavy dubstep vibes... I would say it's more Drum&bass, electro "rock", than acid. Hope you'like the track and show your support. Comments are appreciated.

Cheers,
Setfan
