With "BackSpace" the electronic musician from Aachen orientates himself more strongly than on the previous albums, which also docked massively to the lounge cosmos, to the traditional EM of the seventies/eighties. The cosmos as a metatopic and the "Berlin School" are thus close at hand. The whole thing is opened with the "SpaceRace", which slowly swings up on sequencer wings and is strongly reminiscent of the late eighties works by Software. The slow spinning "StarDust", peppered with effects, could well be imagined as a soundtrack. The title track works again with lounge characteristics and sounds, but is varied and groovy. Some of the following tracks are almost a bit too relaxed, and easily random. "Dream Reminder" works with soft Vangelish-like tones. Only with the last fast, a little bit pop track "Wake Up" you get torn out of your somnambulistic space sleep. Almost a play for a Quentin-Tarantino "Barbarella" sixties trash science fiction. After all, the miracles in the cosmos are infinite.
