10 words or less: Ambient / New Age / Electronica sampler

Elaboration: The first artist on this sampler is Ron Boots. His track is 
reminiscent of Tangerine Dream's later period work. Nice, mellow, Trance / 
electronica. Track 2 is by Future World Orchestra. New Age with a synthesized 
beat. Sort of reminds me of some of Rick Wakeman's early 90s work. Track 3 by 
Eric van der Heijden is a nice New Age piece. Track 4 by Hemisphere is more 
engaging. Building slowly over polyrhythmic percussion into a Trance beat 
reminiscent of Ozric Tentacles mello side sans Guitar; this I could 
recommend. Track 5 by Frank Van Bogaert is on the orchestral side of the New 
Age spectrum. I am reminded of something by Mike Oldfield perhaps on Songs of 
Distant Earth sans Guitar. Inspiring piece; recommended. Track 6 by Syndrone 
is an ambient excursion, good for relaxing and falling asleep. Track 7 by 
Wavestar is electronica with a New Age sweetness to it; very nice. Track 8 by 
Steve Roach & Vidna Obmana is ambient with a slow building percussion 
background; music to dream to. Track 9 by Rudy Adrian is sequenced ambient 
electronica similar to Richard Pinhas' mellow work. Track 10 by Intelligentsia 
is an okay techno / Trance / New Wave sounding piece. Track 11 by Kees Aerts is 
okay sequenced New Age. Track 12 by Michael Stearns is an ambient excursion, 
good for relaxing and falling asleep. Track 13 by Victor Cerullo is an 
interesting rhythmic Trance / New Age mix akin to Ozric Tentacles crossed 
with Fonya; effective. Track 14 by John Dyson is a nice New Age piece with 
well programmed Drums. Track 15 by Kees Aerts & James Clent is a very good 
sequenced electronica piece with guitar that builds to a crescendo. Track 16 
by Ron Boots, Ian Boddy & Harold van der Heijden is an ambient / Trance mix 
that has a nice flow. Track 17 by Alpha Wave Movement is a pulsing ambient 
piece. Music to dream to. The final track on this sampler is by The Blue 
Team. An ambient piece that includes spoken word vocals through a Vocoder. 
With a name like Groove Unlimited, I expected this record company to be 
focused on Trance artists but it seems to encompass a larger variety of 
E-music. I thoroughly enjoyed a few of the pieces on this sampler and based 
on those samples I feel confident recommending the ones I did, YMMV. ~ L.
