Boomkat Product Review:
The second release by Heinrich Dressel, Escape From The Hill begins with an incredibly lovely electronic introduction - 'The Bright Side' is a vaguely spooky piece of cinematic kosmische musik, leading into a title track that reveals an astutely observed Italo-electro hybrid. 'Porticus Aemilia' might bring to mind the music of Zombi, albeit with a little more emphasis on a machinated electronic sound. The suggestion of kitsch, '80s horror/sci-fi soundtrack references is yet more pronounced on 'Lost Into The Horrea Sulpicia', before a big, chunky synth melody takes centre stage on 'Sailing From Ripa Grande'. Finally, 'The Dark Side' marks a return to the sinister soundtrack electro sounds that Dressel seems to be so well versed in.
