  1. Mike Costa / USA

    I am always looking to find new music that sends me to a place of solitude and imagination, and Ron Boots, & even Remotion are truly the Dutch Masters that can do that, every song paints a picture, every picture can make a song.

    Hey John Stuart, I doubt you ever liked any Berlin school” or synth music to begin with. Your cynical comments make you sound like the arrogant American political blowhard with a similar name. No one’s preventing you from listening to your beloved Glass

  3. Pat Murphy / USA

    Awesome Mid Era style synth music with beautiful melodic rhythms overlaying basic trademark sounds of Ron and Michel.

    Anyone not into this release (like one obnoxious reviewer” on this page who made rude comments about it) is not an electronic music fan.

  4. Matt Howarth / Sonic Curiosity

    This release from 2010 offers 71 minutes of dreamy electronic is Michel van Osenbruggen.
    In 2010, the Boots and Osenbruggen families rented a house in the Belgian Ardennes for a weekend. Ron and Michel brought along a synthesizer and a laptop and jammed together. The music they co-created became this album (with some finishing touches applied once the two returned to their respective studios).

    Dreamy electronics conspire with sinuous rhythms, resulting in some very tasty tuneage.While atmospheric textures are utilized, they remain background elements, while numerous frontal riffs generate lush melodies that simultaneously exhibit a soothing disposition as well as a fairly restrained energy that manages to periodically ooze through and shine. Cycles are established and then embellished by additional riffs which ultimately flesh things out into a velvet flow punctuated by incidents of glorious drama. Strong attention is given to creating a steady stream of engaging melodies.
    Rhythms contribute tempos, but the locomotion manifests in a subdued fashion, lending beats without becoming too overwhelming or hyperactive. While the majority of the tracks are calmly amiable, there are several occasions in which the music marshals authority and cooks with delightful results.One track is given a sultry demeanor by molten basslines.

    These compositions display an easygoing sonic mood, one that exemplifies a comfortable collaboration. The tunes shine with congenial melodies performed with stately mastery.

  5. John Stuart / USA

    Sorry, but such music has been heard 1000000x times before. No new melodies, harmonies, rhythm, sounds, anything! Copying that old 1970s Berlin School” or whatever over and over again is just plain boring!
    What is the purpose of this?!? It is OK to make it for your own pleasure

  6. Roberto Vales / Ultima Fronteira Radio

    Groove Unlimited nos presenta esta colaboracin entre uno de los grandes de la msica electrnica como es el holand Ron Boots y un joven compositor que se ha mostrado muy prolfico en los ltimos aos como es el tambin holands Michel van Osenbruggen, ms conocido como

    Refuge en Verre” es el ttulo de esta colaboracin y es resultado de un fin de semana que ambos compositores se pasaron con sus familias en las Ardenas Belgas

  7. Bruce Gall

    Whether it was the relaxed atmosphere the duo were in when the music was conceived or the fact they have worked together before made a difference I don’t know but from track 1 I knew this was going to be a quality album. Quite noticeable to this reviewer is the sustained keyboard solos through many of the tracks (Refuge en Verre

  8. Andr Stooker / NL

    Zag net het bericht van een omhoog gevallen ingezetene van de USA op de cd van jou en Michel. Is netjes dat het geplaatst wordt maar doet juist waarde oordeel aan de cd.
    Hij kent jullie waarschijnlijk helemaal niet en is bij toeval op deze cd gestuit heel erg jammer voor deze persoon, hij weet niet wat hij mist.
    Heb de cd al meerdere keren gedraaid en gaat niet vervelen.

    In 2006, Ron Boots and Michel van Osenbruggen (better known as digitally met on the Dutch Synth Forum”. They started talking about synthesizers and synthesizer music and found out that they shared the same fascinations. Ron is the best and most well-known electronic musician from The Netherlands with many respected and successful releases behind his name

  10. Bert Strolenberg / Sonic Immersion

    The foundation of the music heard on this release was laid down as Ron Boots and Michel van Osenbruggen (aka and their families had a nice weekend out in the Belgian Ardennes in a rented house, of which the latter also became the name of the album.

    Beside the overall moody and relaxed nature of the music of Refuge en Verre”

  11. Stephen / USA

    This is an excellent CD, well constructed, top notch phrasing with plenty of sequencing. I’m familiar with both artists separately, but together it adds dimension to all styles of EM that hasn’t been heard in recent years.
    The combination of analogue and digital synths makes for a rare combination of brilliant soundscapes that delivers high octane sound. This is representative of music that for all purposes does not make listening to all that difficult.

    Every track on this recording forms a story written to coincide with the other. Brilliant

    2010. Stephen / USA
