Demo Tracks and Info

The second in the ’Vanguard’ trilogy, ’Vanguard 2’ continues Andy Pickford’s vision of pulsating and melodic electronica. The music effortlessly crosses the boundaries between traditional electronic music and contemporary electronica and downtempo chill out music.

‘Vanguard 2’ is chockablock full of compelling creativity, presenting a selection of 10 superbly constructed, interlinked tracks, all characterised by strong rhythms, sequences and terrific melodies.

As you would expect, the music is very melodic, and Andy Pickford again shows a maturity that builds on his considerable musical expertise, expanding his musical style, rather than simply emulating past glories, without ever losing sight of his EM roots.

If you enjoyed Vanguard 1, then this superbly presented slice of contemporary electronic music is essential listening.

Available to download or as a factory pressed, replicated CD. Check out our FAQ page for more information.

    Vanguard 2

    Autoprod – 71’04 – UK – electroprog – ’16

    Dreamrider opens strength this second part that should count three. typically beats Andy with a hint of melody with oriental fragrances. Bungalow in the energetic electro rock. A round and vitamins for a melody that will soon become obsessive and hypnotic. Direct sequencing of the crystalline sounds and a voice reminiscent of Charlie’s Lanterns, the tribute to young children hit by leukemia. Release ensures continuity and rhythm returns to power, supported by an undulating melody, haunting and hard … almost. Vitamin flood of decibels prokatyvajut and kill. Step 4: Look into you heart and immerse yourself in the ouatétoilée softness, spin around in iridescent clouds on a synthetic vocals backed by a female chorus magignifique (neologism eljicéen explicit). During a heart beat (subtle pun), the melody plays the Zen, throbbing, enveloping like a silk cocoon and flows like a waterfall in a lush forest. Forefront of Eden. slow tempo rhythms support these chants and the Andean cosmic spices. The female vocals we close, assisted by aerial flute. 12 minutes of top flight carrying the soul and awaken the chakras. The gold strips of the goddess dance languidly in the light of a setting sun on a glassy sea. A pure happiness enchanting above taking the most time of the album, a serenade tears as Andy showed me originally but I will keep secret out of respect for his divine inspiration. A pure piece epidermal guaranteed thrill. In the mirror of the universe, that of death. Facing death, rebirth. Play is understanding. Teardrop Serenade can move you to tears, yes! Riverworld goes on, soft and quiet to the end that you can find on Youtube in a great clip: Break. My God, it’s full of stars! And we go to the other side of the mirror. Definitely a must. E-rating: 5/5, obviously
