Adrian Marcator a.k.a. Marcator a.k.a. Trance released a couple of beautiful LPs in the late 70s and early 80s (see his 2nd above). One day when I visited him, he showed me his self produced & "private press" tapes that followed his LPs. Being a fan of ambient synthesizer music these tapes gained holy grail status in my book within minutes. We are now thinking about reissuing a selection of songs from these tapes on LP and I'd be really happy about your feedback.
You'll find the preselection of tracks here
Thanks for listening. Cheers, Basso

imagine you're in a restaurant somewhere at the other end of the world and you can't read the menu. You chose anything and when food is served you only have vague ideas what it might be.

Here's a lovely Jazz LP from the short lived "Dutch Treat" led by infamous Jan Huydts on keys and synths. Check out his recordings with the group "Third Eye" if you don't them already - amazing fusion stuff.... now Tranquility is the name of this album here and that's what it sounds like. A lesson in subtle finesse. Short and precise song structures instead of noodling it to death ... and then comes the drum solo.... but still you'll have your gentle wahwah guitars, funky flutes and bossa synths. Off to dreamland .... Cheers, Basso
678records who released never heard before tracks from Jan Huydts (together with Rob Franken and Henk Zomer) called KEYBOARD CIRCLE. they have soundclips and these sound amazing.....
