Ravenveer — Erwin Van Looveren — has been a friend for over 20 years. His early guitar gigs as Schidzoid are the stuff of legend, a reputation largelybased on altercations with members of the audience. After self-publishing a dozen or so cassettes, usually adorned with his neon horror vacui drawings, UE is pleased to present the first W. Ravenveer LP. Synth blubber! Mental boogie! Spoken intro and outro! And still in your face: the front cover is a portrait of the artist. Glossy, full-colour sleeve.

In this case it's "cold wave", the unheralded, forgotten musics of the first wave of bedroom artists using the new, affordable synthesizers. Having grown up in several 80s households of bedroom djs I can confidently assert this is the real deal: this is raw, melodic music which could only have come from a particular time and set of circumstances.
It's fresh and direct in as much that today's overproduced pap is flat and lifeless. Great compilation for anyone interested in electronic music. Included are bands most of which you have never heard of before from a range of obscure contemporary, mostly continental European labels.
