Javi Cánovas – One More Day, One Day Less


Release data: Javi Cánovas – One More Day, One Day Less DIGITAL DOWNLOAD, Private Release, 2017 I only need a few lines for this release. Javi’s 4-track “One More Day, One Day Less” is another solid statement of (classic) up-tempo Berlin School electronics. The 65-minute album assembles all usual elements and dynamic currents and blends them masterfully using the same formulae: after a gentle introduction powerful,…

Javi Cánovas – Exile


Release data: Javi Cánovas – Exile DIGITAL DOWNLOAD, Private Release, 2016 The four-track “Exile” is a jolly nice and solid album full of spatial, multi-layered sequential electronics accompanied by vintage textures. The musics dynamic and lovely pulsating yet circular patterns along some moody textural parts sketched out here create a recurring tantalizing effect on each piece. This works out especially well on the 21-minute opener…

Javi Cánovas – Axiom


Release data: Javi Cánovas – Axiom DIGITAL DOWNLOAD, Private Release, 2014 In the process of shaping and composing the music for “Axiom”, Javi Cánovas eventually ended up with 14 shorter pieces, all offering a variety of pads and sequencers spreading a ray of sonic colors. At first, the multi-layered, sequencers-driven outcome reminds of Jarre’s “Arpegiattor” on the first two tracks, before pulling some further energetic…

Javi Cánovas – Hidden Path


Release data: Javi Cánovas – Hidden Path CD, Groove Unlimited, 2014 I for one think it great to see a Cánovas-album again as a factory-pressed cd after a large list of digital-download only and cd-r releases. On this 70-minute/six track newbie, Mr Cánovas doesn’t stray far from his trademark of classic, sequencer-driven music, though here sticking to rather concise pieces and one short piano track….
