9/10 according to on Thu 28 Feb, 2013

Synth legend JD Emmanuel returns with his first new material in 30 years, ‘Time Traveler’ is full of polyrhythmic swirls and trance like head trips into the beyond, made entirely from vintage synths like Prophets and Mono Evolver keyboards that breathe extra-terrestrial sounds directly into your head! There’s not a lot of variation in tracks but that doesn’t matter, the music takes you on a fulfilling journey that’s probably best enjoyed on headphones so that the sonic lushness gets straight into your ears!

Having to put up with only reissues of his past work like ‘Wizards’ and ‘Trance Formations’, it will be refreshing for fans to hear new material in such a long time, with contemporaries such as Tangerine Dream and Vangelis trying to move with the times it’s great to see someone like Emmanuel sticking to traditions and what he does best, sonic experimentation when it’s this good can be a seriously enjoyable experience!

Press release

Kudo’s to Lieven Martens of Dolphins Into The Future for bringing J.D. Emmanuel back into the spotlights. In 2007 Lieven dug up the masterpiece album Wizards and re-issued it on his own label. A few years later, in 2011, J.D. was asked to tour through Europe where he was accompanied by Dolphins Into The Future and Paul Labreque. Denmark, Belgium, Sweden, Germany and Holland welcomed J.D and the people attending the concerts knew they were in for an electronic blast from the past!

This 2xLP set covers the tour with a great deal of unreleased live tracks. The live recordings show J.D.'s phenomenal skill to create a universe of swirling and constantly turning sounds. He's up there in the big league of early electronic and new age pioneers with the likes of Iasos, Laurie Spiegel and Trans-Millenia Consort.

Some words from the man himself: After my European tour, I decided to use the name Time Traveler to describe my music because it can put the listener into a state where time seems to disappear. This is my goal with my music, to create an altered state for expanding consciousness.  

With Hawaïan inspired artwork, just like JD's colorful character and of course his t-shirts.
