It's been quite a while since I've found a pure Ambient album sitting in my P.O. box waiting for a review but then Andreas Akwara's "Erwachet" came across, which is meant to be released on July 16th via Scare Records / iM Electronic. Although Mr. Akwara's work has been mostly renown within the US-american Ambient scene so far and gathered more fans by even entering the overseas Ambient charts with his album "Solar Eclipse" it is clear that his new longplayer "Erwachet" is about to be appreciated worldwide. So what's to be found? All tracks - "Erwachet Satz I - IX" - are very likely to be described as classic, sometimes even a bit esoteric Ambient, deep, calm, beatless, string loaden and at least 100% stress free, apart from a few short bits in which gnarling, manipulated bass sounds are working as background counterparts to the sweet and peaceful athmosphere delivered. Recommended to die-hard fans and true Ambient headz as well as to those who love the sound of original Synth masters like Jean-Michel Jarre and related artists.
