Nadja Lind and Helmut Ebritsch return as Klartraum for release #164 on Lucidflow, one that sees the prolific production duo head deep into space opera territory on ‘Weltenwandler’. You may recognise the title track already from when it featured on their 10 years of Lucidflow celebratory vinyl issuing. For those who missed out, this is a second bite of the apple and a chance to get lost in the gently undulating melody. The key moment here are the small moments where the key shifts ever so slightly, revealing a master plan in scene setting.
Next up we have ‘Rim Satar’, which fully embraces pulpy eighties sci-fi with the–frankly–epic space pad that hangs over the top. Huge, textural, and near on dominating if it was not for the sharp percussion that pinpricks like distant stars. Finally, ‘Urgrund’ rounds off the trilogy, playing fully to the opera aspect with frozen orchestral instruments and choirs drifting through space, cryogenically frozen in everlasting reverb.
‘Weltenwandler’ releases on 6th May and will be available from all the usual digital stockists.
