Embrase is a new name in electronic music. The guy behind Embrase is Dutchman Marc Bras. Already in the late seventies he made his first contact with electronic music through Jean-Michel Jarre’s 'Oxygene' and Berlin School. But also less synthesizer orientated like Mike Oldfield, Alan Parsons, Andreas Vollenweider, Gandalf and Hans Zimmer. The more he listened to these fascinating sounds, the more he was convinced that this was the kind of music he would like to make himself. The influences of all these big names can be heard on his first album 'Dreamworld'.
'Dreamworld' is a record with warm, melodical, rhythmic and easy accessable electronic music that has the ability to appeal to a lot of EM-fans. The sound is full, rich and the music is played with care. Marc’s love for the names mentioned above can well be heard on fine tracks like 'Soundtracking', 'Underwater Secrets' (with -soundwise- some references to contemporary Klaus Schulze), 'Time Is Killing' (especially for those who like the melodically side of Tangerine Dream), 'Moving To The Limit', 'Journey To The Unknown' (both with great basses) and 'E-motional Sequencing' (a fine title, as Marc’s music is filled with emotion).
The last piece 'Less Is More' brings together all the wonderful things that are present on 'Dreamworld'. Less is more is also a learning moment for musicians. Marc doesn’t have to learn this anymore.
Lets just hope more music will follow and embrace the music of Embrase.
