Jürgen "Pöngse" Krutzsch was guitarist of the Krautrock band Tibet in the seventies. After the LP "Isolation" (1985) and, after a long time, the CD connection "The Magix Box" (2013) there is now with "Loopings" the second follow-up with some strong tracks. The technoid, beat-heavy "Alien Breathing", which cleverly combines modern loops with an Alan parsonsaffine, dramatic sound aesthetics, is a rapid and dynamic start - a balancing act suitable for EM, Prog and Trance listeners alike. "And The Universe Was Weeping" or "Cries From Outer Space" are more reminiscent of a mixture of Tangerine Dream and Schiller. The musical motifs burn into your brain thanks to the best sound design. Some things like "Strange Planet" would also be suitable music for a sci-fi movie. "Stardust" could almost be running in a Goa disco that's also open to "X-Files" sounds. Only "Wolves In Winterland" leaves the SciFi cosmos for orchestral film music. Guitarist Benjamin Peiser expands the sound horizon, for example in the slightly lard "Dreaming In The Dawn". And Eroc mastered everything.
