E-News 1367 – April 28th 2024

Dear customers, friends, followers and supporters.

On the 26th of April 2 years ago Klaus Schulze left this world. One of the most influential musicians for me. His music is interwoven in mine. Each track has some of his influences. 

2022 was a strange year when we lost also Vangelis / Mark Shreeve and Manuel Göttsching. 3 of the founders of my music. Edgar Froese left many years before and another influence Keith Emmerson is also no more. We live in a fast world, it turns faster and faster, But during these days that they left us it seems to slow down. The background noise is less. A time to listen to music and breath slower, deeper and perhaps even more free!! That is what now these great musicians give me. Their music makes me whole. (ron boots).

Thanks and see you there.

Callisto – Either Side of Reality

David Wright and Stephan Whitlan combine as Callisto to produce electronic music inspired by Tangerine Dream, Klaus Schulze and Vangelis.

The stunning new album presents 68 minutes of powerful, melodic and sequencer driven electronic music laced with atmospheric ambience. Above all it will have fans of traditional Berlin School electronic music in raptures. And fans of the two musicians and Callisto are clearly gonna love it too.

Just as with the first collaboration (The Reflecting Sky), Callisto – Either Side of Reality came from a series of improvised sessions at David Wright’s Suffolk studio between 2022 and 2023. This time however, the duo decided to continue as ‘Callisto’. The music is a combination of powerhouse sequencing, searing leads and atmospheric ambient music.

Either Side of Reality continues the vision of the original line up of David Wright and Dave Massey in combining traditional 70’s style electronic music with 21st Century sensibilities.

Accordingly the duo pay a passing nod to the more established luminaries of the genre. ‘Either Side of Reality’ is another original and sophisticated slice of powerhouse instrumental music. And the album has already been described by listeners as “an enjoyable trip down Berlin School memory lane – an enjoyable and fun album”.

It clearly reflects the musical vision and expertise of both artists. David’s digital approach and production expertise combine with Steffan’s analog skills but with a clear intent of the collaboration metamorphosing into something completely new.

Remy + Däcker – Live at Byss (Limited)

Remy + Däcker – Live at Byss (Normal)

During the pandemic, Bas Broekhuis invited musicians at his BYSS music studio. Artists including Kontroll-Raum, Ron Boots, Skoulaman and René van der Wouden entered the small stage to perform their music for a large audience through a live video stream. This was the only way to reach listeners in times of worldwide lockdown. Also Remy Stroomer (REMY) and Peter Dekker (Däcker) got the opportunity to premier their collaboration at BYSS. This album contains the registration of their improvised concert.
