Blue Arctic Danube (10pm Session At A38 Budapest) (30:41)
Gladiatonial Dragon (9.35pm Session At AC Hall Hong Kong) (27:45)
Review: As you see this, you're probably expecting a reissue of a 70s LP, but this couldn't be further from the truth. Tangerine Dream, one of the most mythical bands to come out of Germany in the early 70s, is still in operation and they're current line-up consists of Thorsten Quaeschning, Ulrich Schnauss and Hoshiko Yamane, who recorded a series of live gigs that took place in 2017, both in Budapest and Hong Kong. These two sides of vinyl are the result: "Blue Arctic Danube" opens up the A-side with a swarm of monumental drones and electronic effects, crystal-clear in the composition and together making an unforgettable soundscape; on the B-side, "Gladiatonial Dragon", recorded in Hong Kong, is a much more detailed piece of music, turning the drones and effects into beatless grooves that paint a fine picture of the sort of band that TD have become. We think they're sick. Don't miss this!
