Boomkat Product Review:
Kicking off with Nine Circles’ all-time evergreen, What’s There Left is always a sign of great things, and Dutch Wave - A History of Minimal Synth & Wave In The Netherlands mercifully does not disappoint.
Beyond Nine Circles, the set offers an expert survey in the seminal European sound of the early ‘80s, variously sweeping us the languorous synth-pop groove of Share My Heart’s Blood by Beatnik Love Affair, along with the The Acto’s art school sensibilities in Unreal Personality, and Störung’s stoned, sleazy punk slackness in Dimensie 4.
Van Kaye & Ignit’s sought-after proto-techno/EBM enigma Picassos On The Wall  is another huge highlight, lodged on the B-side with the unmissable, psyched-out jag of S.M. Nurse’s Hot Day In Istanbul, Ende Shneafliet’s tear jerking stunner Session Zeitgeist, and the cranky klangs of A dark Place (Vocal Version) by Dutch minimal wave legends Das Ding.
