  1. Sylvain Lupari / Guts of Darkness

    Why change a winning formula? Sunshine is in the continuity of Trip to Illusion. A living opus which carries the signature of a headlight group of this new German wave of synth pop EM. More fluid with a brighter melodious touch and a less Kraftwerk robot-like style, Sunshine is mould in the electronic spheres of MellowJet.

    New York starts this 4th CD of the Berlinois duet (Andreas Braun and Detlef Dominiczak) with a frank, solid rhythm on semi stormy, nervous and slightly syncopated sequences. A catchy synth weaves limpid harmonies where sequential phases twirl on slow and harmonious mellotron. Some great synth pop, just like Strings and Superstrings, which rolls to misinterpretation on layers that held the beat without deteriorating its dynamism.
    Onyx is heavier, more frantic. It rolls on echotic loops and a tuneful synth with a zesty light tribal suspicion and flapping percussions. A dynamic title on trance zombies like sequences as we feel on Sleepwalker, Callipso and Floating.
    Biowave is kind of lonely with its languorous and sensual tempo revolving around a beautiful ascending sequence which curves a Milky Way mellotron and strewn with cosmic effects.
    A beautiful space ballade which precedes Klangfarben, the releasing pearl of Sunshine with its soft piano curling in a spiral rhythmic as melodious as dreamy. Always showing creativity, Wellenfeld tames a nebulous hip hop approach on Sine Fields. An appealing title by its groovy funk approach and keys which multiply their resonances in layers that furrow a dragging rhythmic. And this is the Wellenfeld paradox! Beat. Good rhythm which releases a feeling of wriggling heaviness in its fusion with synths to mellotron orchestrations.
    Neolectric itself defines this opposition of cadences. A heavy title, feed of melodious synthesized layers which waltz on beautiful stroboscopic sequences, with the very image of all that rolls in Sunshine.

    This is an excellent album throughout but they certainly kick off with the best piece on the CD with ‘New York’. It is a beautiful gently rhythmic and wonderfully melodic number with ‘trance’ leanings that seep into the consciousness. There’s a warmth and even rather sensuous quality to it all. It’s so good in fact that they even finish the album with a radio cut of it! A hard act to follow for sure but the rest of the tracks really aren’t that far behind.
    The same laid back ‘trance’ feel permeates the whole album, catchy loops hitting the spot perfectly with shimmering little melodies floating over the top. My feet were gently moving to the subtle rhythms throughout the music and it was hard to keep my hands still long enough to type, as they wanted to alternate between dreamy air keyboard and tapping out the subtle rhythms on the desk.
    It is true that this is mainly a rhythm-based album but sequences are used from time to time, either in a supporting role or occasionally carrying the melody. Even though things never get too bombastic many of the tracks have a sort of swelling grandeur to them.

    This is a thoroughly uplifting and fun listening experience with not one moody or dark moment to be found so even though I don’t particularly like the rather ‘twee’ title the album certainly does shine when compared to most other Electronic Music CDs out there.
