"Cosmopolitan Dances" is the second studio album by Michel Bekkering
and contains three mind blowing and nicely layered vintage-oriented electronic
with warm sparkling and nice rendered sequencing with lots of atmosphere and
"Tango Hypnotique is a tasty 'tango driven' track with strongly
and powerful percussive ingredients and a nice FreeAlpha/Moog-solo at the end.
Théâtre de Poupée is blessed with extremely
warm & unearthly beautiful sequencing
with a nice intimate piano interlude in the middle of the piece
and featuring a beautiful psychedelic organ with lots of twinkling, echo and
The cd ends with Jive dans le Mouvement Lent which is a well
composed slowly building track
with a rolling sequence and nice relaxing soloing, especially near the end.
