Joerg Strawe / Cue Records:
Iconic is Danger in Dream´s new album. Like the legendary predecessor Entrance, this album is produced in the style of Berlin School, expanded with progressive elements. Iconic offers everything that delights us fans of electronic music: a lot of those great PPG sounds, driving sequences, analog moog basses, catchy solos, etc.
Danger in Dream use only hardware synthesizers, which are recorded in numerous live sessions in the studio. Accompanied by sequencers and arpeggiators, the artists record only the mixed stereo signal. The music gets it´s sound in a professional studio by the best sound engineers. The focus on the magic of the moment and the open approach give Iconic that distinctive organic flavour. Iconic is a sensational album.

I got Iconic last week and I must have played it a thousand times. The music is really addictive. Awesome synthesizer sounds, crystal clear tone, catchy solos, groovy sequences – all what I expect from that kind of music. The booklet states that Danger in Dream pays tribute to the good old days of electronic music. I think that they did not build just a temple to worship our heroes. Actually they built a colossal cathedral! Electronic music at it´s best, very recommended!

I picked the CDs up from the US Post Office yesterday. Both my son and I have listened to them and think you have another winner! I am such an aficionado of that old school Berlin sound you capture so well. Do I understand correctly that the whole thing has captured in real time? I'm impressed! Thank you for carrying the torch and putting out more of your work!
