Schiller - Zeitgeist
CD Album - Radikal Records
Schiller is the German production team of Christopher Von
Deylen and Mirko Von Schlieffen and the album is the newly released
"Zeitgeist" which loosly translates into "spirt of the people". Released on
the New York based Radikal Records, Schiller's "Zeitgeist" starts off
sounding a lot like the original Enigma album. German replaces the french
vocals and techno inspired beats replace the Gregorian chants, but the
effect is similar.
|The big hit of the set is the
trance induced "Das Glockenspiel" which resided in the German Top 25 sales
charts for three months. "Glockenspiel" became one of
the most played club anthems of the year and has popped up on quite a
few compilations here stateside.
The Robert Miles
influenced "Korperbewegung (Body Movements)" follows and continues the
familiar texture that these guys are laying down. More earthy nature sounds
ensue with the meditative "Freiheit (Freedom)" which not only emulates
Enigma but seemingly borrows their chord progressions as well.
