I lost track of Robert Schroeder and his music quite a long time ago, as I thought it had become mediocre and too predictable, although I saw him perform live a couple of times in recent years at jamsessions in Germany.
“Sphereware” is his second release on Spheric Music (but his 16th solo-album), and it’s a nice surprise indeed. This music sounds fresh, blending sounds from various corners of electronic music: chill-out, Berliner School and contemporary electronics.
I personally think Schroeder is at his best when he moves into ambient soundscapes (such as the nice opener “Access to Dream” and the next track “A Quarter of an Hour”).
The album’s content certainly gives hope for other music in the years to come, I sincerely hope Robert will continue and keep up evolving his musical trademark.
