D.MO Vol. 3 (Original Unreleased Recordings from t
CD, Spheric Music, 2011
More archival and shelved recordings are presented on Mr Schroeder’s "D.MO Vol. 3", revisiting his typical and so much appreciated sonic excursions from the 1980’s .
This time, the quality of the compositions and the selection of pieces is far better compared to "Vol. 2" in the D.MO-series. Robert doesn’t rely on simple chill-out melodic lines, but creates spheres on each track reflecting on the core sound of his music in the ’80’s. The latter is well expressed by "The Meaning of Time" and "Soft and Lovely", found at the start of the album. "Santo Domingo" though sounds too light and easy-going for me.
Overall, it’s great to hear those memorable choir pads again along a fine display of PPG Wave2 sounds and Sequencial Drumtraks that are so strongly connected to Schroeder’s classic e-music.
