After the successful Beyond Berlin album "Totem" and Rene de Bakker his 6th solo album "Our Gift" (his 1st Groove album) Rene ended up in a new solo project. New equipment arrived in the studio and new inspiration drove him to new music. You will recognize his predilection for the early KS and TD era, but new synthesizers have bridged the gap to a full-fledged 2020 sound. It became mainly sequencer based music with smooth melody lines and daring sounds and effects. Most tracks are based on the Berlin School style, but with a very personal twist. It has become a product where only hardware synths were used, such as analog synths and modular systems, but also digital equipment. a must for those who want to dream away with a long floating track, and want to be on the edge of their seat with some rougher tracks.
Rene de Bakker is an electronic artist, also known from Beyond Berlin. At age of 15, he became interested in symphonic rock bands and synthesizers used by them. But it was Timewind by Klaus Schulze that made him wanting to play a synthesizer. Beside Schulze, Rene was influenced by all great electronic music of that time like Tangerine Dream, Tomita, Synergy and Vangelis. With this heavy Berlin School influenced release the sequences rule. Rene's first release on Groove is an solid mature release that will be liked by any who love the big Berlin Sound!
