Uwe Reckzeh - Part of Time


1 von 5 Sternen1 von 5 Sternen

Dave Law, www.synthmusicdirect.com´: The tracks from this album originate from some mid 90s projects unavailable on any of his current five other in print albums. They are all upbeat and either rhythmic or sequencer based (often both). Twangy pulses then a cracking rhythm propel 'Rising Star' forward in a wonderfully energetic manor. A stabbing bass line and staccato melodies add to the excitement making it hard to keep the body still. The title track deploys a steady bass rhythm over which a simple piano melody starts to form mutating into an infectious loop then subsiding in a sea of brooding atmospherics before emerging once more with renewed vigour. 'The Hall of Visions' brings a lovely sequence to play right from the first instant. Steady drums take things forward whilst lovely slow melodies float from the speakers giving a faintly Schulzian feel to proceedings. Things settle into a rather laid back pattern and I just closed my eyes and let myself be taken along with it all. 'Elementary Voices' keeps the sequencer in action; all very melodic the pulsations are too, morphing this way and that through the tracks duration. 'Silent Moves' has a gorgeous rather cosmic start with loads of soft sighing pads. A simply exquisite tuneful loop provides one of the real highlights on the album. Drums and sonic stabs create a syncopated wall whilst slow tuneful pads add a little softness. A lovely track. 'Mirror of Infinity' is initially all rather sinister until a wonderful rapid lead line strikes up changing the mood completely. I couldn't keep my hands still as they wanted to play air keyboard along with the music. Things do keep returning to moodier realms but this just gives the whole thing added depth. Yet another winner. Wistful little melodies provide a quite beautiful and tranquil start to 'Universal Avenue'. A high-hat line ups the tempo preparing the way for a spot on bass sequence and lovely combination of melodies, one rapid and the other silken. All these elements combine to create a euphoric head of steam. 'Watching Behind' starts with the sound of someone walking then a heartbeat before thunder and a breaking storm. A slow tinkling sequence is joined by a second meatier one, combining wonderfully to form a deep feeling of sadness. Lovely little lead lines add to this feeling as does an acoustic guitar refrain nearer the end. Yet another exquisite piece. 'Listen to the Whales' begins with the sound of said beasties before a heartfelt slow lead line comes in. It is really quite beautiful but I think the whale song could have been faded out earlier leaving the gorgeous sequences and lead lines more space to do their wonderful thing. 'Visit the Quit Zone' is a laid back gently pulsating meandering track ideal to chill out to. A piano lead line gets 'Sirius' underway which is then replaced by militaristic type drums and a throbbing bass line. We go through one melodic twist after another then the piano returns with added gusto providing a very enjoyable finish.
