2008. Press Information


"The Sun Shines, The World Smiles" is a alternate version with a complete different beginning.
"Surfacing from Beyond" is a live version, and a highly energetic version I might say. It was performed by Kees and James Clent in Essen, Germany on January 26 1998. I am sure you're gonna love these tracks as much as you like the new CD.
Oct 2008. Ron Boots


"The Sun Shines, The World Smiles" starts with cosmic and ethereal synth pads. A nice and bright atmosphere permeats the intro, quite different in sound and mix from the album version. Soon bass sequences appear, as the pads become more synthetic and melodic. A laid back rhythm starts, in stark contrast to the original version. The choirs return adding a heavenly touch. Strange samples are joined by electronic twitters for a relaxed, easy-going ride among the clouds. The great and already familiar melodic theme appears - gentle, uplifting and bright. This song is probably the catchiest tune Kees has ever composed. Check it out, it's simply wonderful.
"Surfacing From Beyond" is a live performace from Essen. Dark sounds give way for a rhythmic pulse and some dramatic pads. The tension grows until some profound synth sounds turn into aggressive drones and a fast-paced electronic sequence appears. Another sequence is chugging nicely along and then another upper register sequence appears, as pads play a simple two note motif. A symphonic lead line appears bringing in some bombast to this rhythmic composition. Surprisingly, a guitar lead surfaces towards the end of this 7+ minute piece, occupying the right channel of the stereo field, as the pads change keys along with the sequences. Fine stuff and another good reason to buy Kees' latest effort, not to mention the great music on the album itself.
