Hypnotic Beats (1990). The title "Hypnotic Beats", happily, doesn’t mean that this album, Schönwälder’s second since 1990, has something to do with modern rhythms, though, the music is more rhythmic than on its predecessor "The Eye Of The Chameleon". This recording has a great sequence, some nice rhythms, and, on top of this, a lot of atmosphere…

These two artists were just made to work together. All their albums as a team have provided a different listening experience but all have been superb. The opening track uses a style of sequence and very similar sounds to what you would find on Peter Baumann's magnificent first two solo albums 'Romance 76' and 'Trans Harmonic Nights'. If you liked those you should go ape about this. This sequence lasts for the best part of half an hour building quite quickly but pounding along fantastically with all manner of Tangerine Dream type lead lines, circa Stratosfear, Encore and Force Majeure period, blasting over the top…

Broekhuis-Keller-Schönwälder, for years a solid base in the Electronic and "Berlin School" style of music. Inspired by Klaus Schulze, Tangerine Dream and Vangelis they have managed to develop their own style of Electronic Music, with Trance and Ambient influences and their way to perform that on stage. Beautiful sequences and driving drums with a wide variety of pads and astonishing sound effects on top, which can best be described as "the -BK&S-way of Electronic Music".

This is actually a demo disc for the Schrittmacher sequencer and features mainly Manikin label artists (the sequencer being developed by Manikin Electronics). The main interest to many people though will be that it also contains an otherwise unavailable track by Klaus Schulze (all the tracks here are new). Overall this is a very good album that certainly well demonstrates the new sequencer but sometimes the sequences do go on a little so you really do have to like that style of music to get the most out of it.

The music on this album is 2nd wave of EM at it's best with elements of Mario Schönwälder (he was later) and Peter Mergener (who performed the music composed by TeeKay).

This CD from 2002 delivers 68 minutes of dense electronic music by Detlef Keller (whose frequent collaborations with Mario Schönwälder have made the pair's music a mainstay in the European electronic music genre and concert scene). Here, we get to hear Keller's solo accomplishments, which are purely and respectfully cut in the Berlin School of Electronics mode. Densely layered textures emerge from darkness, drenched with somber sentiments and languid tonalities. The music gradually evolves power and structure with vibrating pulsations that lend rhythm, while the keyboard cycles accelerate with sportive determination…

Detlef's extensive solo catalog contains one gem after another of beautiful melodies and surging sequential tracks. The mix of soaring symphonic arrangements and pulsing rhythms is absolutely intoxicating. He also tends to arrange the pieces so they segue-way into one another creating a striking conceptual flow that sweeps you up in its wave of sound.
