Release data:

Broekhuis, Keller & Schönwälder – Green
CD, Manikin Records, 2015


“Green” sees a further continuation of the band’s “color-series”, featuring music played live in concert at their Repelen-venue and during rehearsals in 2015.

The 73-minute release merges classic Berlin School infused music and contemporary electronics into a melodic-oriented excursions where influences of trance, minimalist and atmospheric ambient shine through as well. Each of the five tracks feels alive in their own distinct manner, spiced with versatile combos of rhythm, sequences and solos in what the EM-community by now knows as the “BK&S-way of Electronic Music”.

If you’d like to get a proper taste of these dynamics, simply dig the 25-minute “Green One” and 18-minute “Green Two” kicking off the album, which also make the best and tastiest parts for me.
This contrary to “Green Three”, where the electronics combined with flute, violin and guitars don’t match enough, at least to my ears and taste. Good to find out there’s “Green Four”, which all good things are put back on track again, offering pleasant bits of venom, grooviness and dynamics elements all along the ride to make the 16-minute piece really shine.
