DJM is an absolute master at getting that early TD sound. If you sat me in the dark and put this on and told me TD had landed back on Earth I wouldn't give it a second thought..gorgeous stuff.
Favorite track: sanctum.
this is not a regular album. This release features collection of unreleased tracks, alternate and early versions and mixes.
there will be no CD release
Part 2. to be continued...
recorded in 2001
recently discovered track from 2001 (or maybe 2000).
sounds like a prototype for the tracks 13 years later developed on the first Cosmic Ground albums.
recorded in may 1991, remixed in 2018.
found on an old tape, a guitar and synth drone from the past.
rehearsal recording April 2016
performed together with Horst Porkert on Synthesizers.
recorded direct to 2-track with stereo microphone in the electric orange rehearsal room (loud P.A.).
same equipment used as on "cosmic ground live"
You will get 24bit hi-res files with the flac download.
honestly this album takes quite a bit of time and many listening rounds to actually "get into". No doubt it is technically excellent, with more advanced composition elements than earlier records, however it isn't that easily accessible either. Perhaps this is actually a strength as each time you will listen to there will be more details to discover. Martin Richter
