patient_ot An updated 90s take on Berlin School electronic music. Quite a lot of variety here, but it holds well together thematically and is very well crafted. I'm guessing this a pretty obscure release outside of Germany, but it definitely deserves more attention.

This marvellous album is one of the hidden gems of sophisticated (yet entertaining) German 90ies electronica and has been criminally underrated since it's original release.

It's - partly - in the vein of Jörg Schaaf's (also excellent!) collaborations with synth pioneer Klaus Schulze - but is actually even wider in stylistical scope, while it manages in the same time to create a very cohesive experience (!).

A great, great sonic journey indeed!

about

Beautiful in it’s darkness, perfect in it’s terror. The panic pouring from it attracts the listener from the very first instant; its bleak, confining ambiences, are born from the lowest of sounds and the most distorted effects. Sonar Experience is a quest through fear and the past; a past overcrowded with german sounds and perfect sequences in which textures are varied and twisted to the point that they reach the perfection of a Greek sculpture. Tangerine Dream, Schulze… their style is evoked yet reformulated; adapted to modernity, yet not perverted by it. A masterpiece reminding us that which is creativity: to know the past, mix it up, and from its sum, become innovative.
Laura S. García – Amazing Sounds
