  1. Sylvain Lupari / & synth&

    By glancing through Ron Boots biography we are capable of noticing the impressive road map of the founder of the Dutch electronic movement (Netherlands School) and the internationally recognized Groove label. The career of Ron Boots began in 1987 with Linear Waves, an opus realized and distributed on cassette format. Format that was going to support the release of his 5 following works. Initially realized in 1990 on the Synteam label, which became Groove, Dreamscape is about dreams. Reveries and lucid dreams which are skillfully transposed on a music where rhythms and ambiences are separating the melancholy from hope. With this album, which was chosen as the best album by the German Schwingungen Club, Ron Boots had aimed at the summit and stayed there since. In fact, Dreamscape explains by its structures and music all of Ron Boots’ impact on the chessboard of contemporary EM.

    Its with hesitating pulsations to outlines eroded by silvery echoes that Cougarland” is settling a slow rhythm fed by a sequential approach which has difficulty in climbing a spiral ascent. The rhythm is heavy and slow

    This 2003 reissue of Ron Boots‘ debut CD in 1990 boasts new cover art, remastered originals, and the bonus track Rivers 2003″. I’ve never heard the original Dreamscape

  3. Bill Binkelman / WindandWire

    Dreamscape (a collection of remastered tracks from albums originally recorded in 1989 and 1990, with one new additional song added) reminds me why I love electronic music in the first place. We’re talking pure unadulterated electronic music, not ambient nor any current-day incarnation of the genre. No, this is music back from the days when artists like Ray Lynch, Suzanne Ciani, Jean Michel Jarre and Boots himself released albums that celebrated the unique musical qualities of synthesizers themselves. And does this album perfectly capture the magic, drama, joy and mystery that albums like Equinoxe, Deep Breakfast, and Seven Waves filled me with all those years ago.

    From the powerful opening track, Cougarland”

    Still an overwhelming debut CD by this highly successful Dutch musician. Elected as Best Album of the Year” by the German Schwingungen Club. It was also the start of his success in the Netherlands and abroad. His unique style of heartfelt (Berliner School based) electronic music stands out through excellent compositions

  5. Carl Jenkinson

    Dutch musician Ron Boots has had a long career in instrumental EM, producing many much-loved albums as well as encouraging many up and coming artists with their own music, co-running the important Groove label with Kees Aerts and becoming an important part of the crew that stages the annual E-Live festival in The Netherlands.
    Originally a lead figure in the so-called Eindhoven School” that saw the first wave of Dutch E-Musicians cutting their teeth (some of whom such as Ron Doesborg & Bas Broekhuis helped out on this album) this 1990 album marked his first foray onto CD and
