Dutch synth producer re-releases missed treasure



The term New Age was banded about in the 1990’s to anything that was slightly ethereal and synth heavy, sadly it meant a lot of great stuff was completely dismissed by the majority of the public, due to a stereotype involving crystals and tie-die.



The Holy Trees by Dutch producer Arnaud van Beek show’s how wrong this stereotype was. He has cleverly crafted nine tracks that while seeming serene are packed full of power and imagination. After a full on Bank Holiday of BBQ’s, excursions socialising this is the perfect answer.



If you are a fan of the soaring synth majesty of Vangelis, Jean Michel Jarre and Kraftwerk with the New Age twist of Yanni this is for you. If you aren’t, then you should listen to this album anyway.











  1. I have to agree that anything slightly different is tagged with New age, will have a listen to the music too x

  2. This time I could hear the music. Sublime stuff. Am sharing this with some young musicians who I know will like this

  3. This was definitely different but I liked it a whole lot!!! This is kinda up my alley, I admit it.

  4. Wow! That is an intense tune. You have such a variety if different types of music & I love learning about it. 🙂
