Hagen von Bergen - Ei Allemol (CD)
Posted Thu Aug 28, 2014 10:35 pm by BruecknerAmbient
EM News Well, I have mentioned my good old friend Hagen von Bergen on this forum already a few times.

Not only is he a good friend, but also the owner of the tiny (but fine-y) EM label BI-ZA records.

AND: he is also a great electronic musician with a very unique blend of styes...

Some of the ingrediences he brews his strong stuff with are:
processed field recordings, trippy dance beats, Reggae, Berlin School sequences, world music, sometimes also catchy hooklines...and a good portion of weird humor, too!

Maybe it should be pointed out that he releases under two monikers:

- as Hagen von Bergen (which is a pseudonym) rather rhythmic, melodic EM

- as Hargest Darken rather dark ambient

Then again, both projects share a lot of elements, and especially so on his latest CD, released in July 2014:

Ei Allemol

...availabel here:



Ever since I had the privilege to be the first person to hear an early mix of the album's main track, the 46-minute-trip "Mautzemacher" on a car ride to Mainz I'm of the opinion that this new album is his greatest achievment so far (...and his previous albums weren't small feats, either!) - a stroke of genius if I ever heard one!

However - as I said, he's a good friend, so I'm probably biased. But you can judge for Yourselves:
here's an early mix of this track; already great, however the album version has even better production values...

Perge - Green Desert 2014
Posted Mon Aug 25, 2014 12:54 pm by phaedra2008
EM News I looked at this with skepticism wondering how many TD renditions are already out there and how many are still to follow.
The artwork takes the piss out of the original release on Relativity becoming Irrelativity, and, the story about the lost 1973 tapes... something I never believed anyway, then the track Movements of a Divisionary.

But I hit the sample play button & all the above didn't matter anymore Laughing

A well crafted album capturing very well that middle TD era in every respect, every track is a gem.

One catch, the "pysical" CDr has the first 4 track only clocking in close to an hour, the download has 4 extra (Sample) tracks ranging from 3-11 minutes in length, maybe these samples were intended for a loger release?

syndae - episode 267
Posted Fri Aug 22, 2014 9:59 pm by treibklang
EM News Must be April again with all the weather going bananas. At least, the real EM fans stay loyal organizing the 7th installment of the Electronic Circus in Gütersloh on October 4. And so we start tonight's edition with two tracks of Circus acts, first by Alerick Project from their album One Way and second Jerome Froese with his friends known as Loom from their album The Tree Hates the Forest. So, yeah, cool stuff coming up in about 6 weeks. Of course, there is more on the roster. Like Elrox with his latest album Lucent Echoes. Then we have a teaser for the upcoming re-release of Shadow of the Wind by Bekki Williams. Also, the new compilation from Midnight Radio number 24 is in with the contribution by Jesper Sorensen. And our closer is an old friend, Mikael Fyrek with A Thousand Years and One.

Artistic activities at: http://www.syndae.de/episodes/621-episode-267

Yours, Stefan

Eccentric Orbit: Creation Of The Humanoids
Posted Wed Aug 20, 2014 3:02 am by Craig Shipley
EM News 10 years after their debut release "Attack of the Martians", Eccentric Orbit is back with another release of sci-fi influenced instrumental release "Creation of the Humanoids". More prog than electronic music, there are tasty slabs of keyboard and wind-controlled synthesizers to keep us synth-fans happy. Check the band out here: http://www.eoband.com

(I have no affiliation with the band other than being a happy fan wanting to share the news.)

Bekki Williams

New releases Here are details of the reissued Shadow of the Wind CD by Bekki Williams due for release on September 5th 2014.

More details and sound bites available from AD Music, where there's a 20% pre-order discount offer!


Here is the official press relase:-

1. Cartagra (6:37) 2. Mistral (8:33) 3. Sirocco (6:5Cool 4. Silhouettes (5:41) 5. Night Flier (5:03) ! 6. River of Night’s Dreaming (7:4Cool 7. The Talisman (6:51) 8. Zahira (5:57) 9. Azmara (8:30) 10. Hymn (for Her) (3:41) 11. The Talisman (Asana remix) (6:36)
Total album time 72.00

Music composed, performed and arranged by Bekki Williams. Produced by Bekki Williams and David Wright. Remastered by David Wright. Published by Notting Hill Music Publishing Group plc.

AD Music is pleased to announce the release of a remastered ‘Shadow of the Wind’ by Bekki Williams. The original album received much critical acclaim upon its release in 1997 for its epic, dune-swept musical vistas.

As well as bringing the music more vividly to life, this superbly remastered re-issue also includes new artwork and new music composed by Bekki Williams specially for this release.

Shadow of the Wind’ is full of infectious, heartfelt melodies and contemporary motifs. The music sweeps along majestically atop superb up-tempo and laid back sequencing, often with romantic overtones, which is no surprise as some of the music was penned to accompany a special screening of the Rudolf Valentino silent film classic “The Son of the Sheik” in conjunction with a special BBC Derby Cinema 100 Festival in 1996.

“Here is music that is rich, melodious and soaringly soulful with a warmth and
sensitivity that could only come from a woman”. (Ashley Franklin, BBC Radio Derby).

Available from iTunes, Amazon and all major outlets from 5th September 2014
