New Release from Tangerine Dream

 

"Kscope are extremely proud to be the home of the new studio album from Tangerine Dream, entitled Quantum Gate, released to coincide with and celebrate the 50th anniversary of the foundation of the band. Tangerine Dream have been a fundamental influence on electronic and progressive music since their formation in West Berlin, 1967. Inspiring genres, musicians and other art forms, from The Future Sound of London to Porcupine Tree, the widely popular TV show Stranger Things (for which their music also featured in) to seminal video game Grand Theft Auto V (for which they helped to write the soundtrack).

Album Review of Urban Metta, Vol. 2 by Anaamaly

 

Urban Metta, Vol. 2 is the anticipated second installment in the Urban Metta series by electronic music composer, Phil Strickland, who records under the project name of Anaamaly. Comprised of eleven compositions spanning nearly 70 minutes, this album, like its predecessor, was conceived with the intent of inducing blissful states of relaxation, and is likewise well-suited for massage, mediation and yoga practices. Stylistically part ambient and part “new age”, each composition is titled after a positive affirmation that all begin with “I”. Although on its surface this notion may strike some listeners as being a bit too typically “woo-woo”, Phil’s extensive background in the chill-out, downtempo and instrumental hip-hop genres effectively help to keep these compositions firmly anchored in compositional depth and delightfully free of excessive syrup. Filled with churning textures, humming chords and organic/environmental samples throughout, the compositions mostly adhere to similar sound patterns, with each possessing individual nuanced attributes.

New Release from Frore & Shane Morris

"Long ago, before science explained the mechanics of the heavens, primitive cultures looked to the skies for insight and enlightenment. Predicting events, measuring time, provoking awe and terror, the observation of the celestial sphere was of utmost importance, and through those mystic ages the shock of an unexpected eclipse would become a beacon in time, impacting people’s lives, religions, and cultures for generations. This meaningful phenomenon is the inspiration for ECLIPSE, the second collaboration of tribal-ambient soundscapes from ethno-electronic recording artists Frore & Shane Morris." ~Spotted Peccary Music

New Release from Robert Logan

"After six solo electronic/ambient albums and his 2016 collaborations with Steve Roach (BIOSONIC and SECOND NATURE, Projekt) Robert Logan’s new album blends surprising electronic and acoustic sources, terraforming bright, melodic molten sound with an enraptured experience of the natural world.

SCULPTOR GALAXY resonates with the spirit of the albums that captured Logan’s imagination as a youngster: film music, 70s and 80s electronic, and progressive rock. The album connects with the work of early Roach, Vangelis, Kraftwerk, Tangerine Dream, and Jean Michel Jarre, sounding at times like the album Jarre would create today had he continued exploring the universe began with 1984’s fantastically unusual Zoolook." ~Projekt Records
