1 review for Uwe Reckzeh – Part of time

  1. Sylvain Lupari / Guts Of Darkness

    The music that builds Part of Time was composed in the mid 90s, when Uwe Reckzeh worked on Project and initiated the first lines of Behind the Northern Wasteland. A period where the German synthesist tergiversated between synth pop and a new kind of Berlin School, a more accessible kind. But is this enough sufficient to justify a collection old writings which, we got to admit, are of made up old women which, is necessary to acknowledge it, are superbly remixed by Bernd Scholl?

    Heavy and loud Rising Star opens with an impetuous bass line in a funky style. Percussions and sequences hammer a frantic tempo of West-Indian style, with a synth as furious as it rhythmic structure. A dynamic title out of the usual Uwe Reckzeh repertory.
    The title track continues the rhythmic ride of Rising Star. Bass sequence, flexible and fluid on a zigzagging piano Part of Time is agitating on nervous percussions and a synth with wriggling arpeggios wrapped with Vangelis chorus and layers. Short atmospheric moments break the pace, before diving again in disconcerting rhythmic on synths to symphonic arrangements.
    With its staggering sequence, which crosses another pealing one, The Hall of Visions brings us back a little more into the contradictory structures which are the heart of Reckzeh charm. A minimalism approach, wrapped of smoking and metallic layers which mould a passive lasciviousness as Software.Fine percussions activate this slow cosmic waltz anchoring even more the harmonies opposition of the The Hall of Visions.
    A soft felted sequence gets Elementary Voices out of its dark waves. Padded sequence on pealing one, the title surfaces in a soft minimalism spiral stuffed of fine sidewinder percussions and delicate feverish pulsations which are moulding to a mellotron synth with waltzing orchestrations.
    A beautiful cosmic ballade which we still find the spirit on Mirror of Infinity with a faster pace.
    After a nebulous intro, Silent Moves becomes slowly animated on a beautiful spiral sequence with soft clangour tinkling. A lyric approach that Reckzeh exploits with wonder on Part of Time. The movement progresses on a superb orchestration, slowing down the beat with heavy layers which bamboozle around a wavering cadence. A real tuneful track, well done well mixed and well orchestrated.
    The intro of Universal Avenue floats on a synth with spectral whistles where swelling layers mold a ghostly pace which moves slowly on castanets cymbals. A strange hooting ode that turns out into a soft techno and synth pop as New Order years. Without breaking the hut, the tempo remains captivating, all fixed it is in heavy nonchalant but hanging layers.
    A track loud but fascinating, with a heavy and throbbing tempo, just like on Watching Behind.
    Listen to the Whales evolves very slowly with an intro where the language of the whales is exploited on a fine sequence which is weighed down while progressing.
    Sirius encloses Part of Time with a military march a bit strange with its piano which zigzags on a complex harmonious structure. A superb piano whose keys resonance is moulding with wonder with the tribal percussions, making Sirius as exotic as astonishing.

    A beautiful lucky find as we will discover some others on this collection a little bit puzzling which certainly please the fans of Uwe Reckzeh.

    2008. Sylvain Lupari / Guts Of Darkness
