JUXTAPOSITION was recorded between July and November 2015. John Kerr and Ron Boots decided that a new album was the only fitting way to celebrate the 25th anniversary of their very successful album "Offshore Islands".
After a period of 14 years without composing and recording and having sold all his musical equipment, John had to literally start from the beginning and decided not to work with midi and laptops any more, but with digital multitracking, combining old and new techniques. It was literally "back to school" for John!
Ron however has been continuously recording and developing over the years together with the advancement of the present day technologies, so "re-schooling" for him was totally unnecessary!
The music of JUXTAPOSITION was recorded in John's newly equiped studio in Amsterdam and in Ron's Dreamscape Studio in Best. The tracks were transferred back and forth via the internet and when enough material was considered ready and usable, John travelled to Ron's Dreamscape Studio where Ron mixed, edited and produced the tracks resulting in a truely fresh, new and maybe unexpected juxtaposition of their two completely different styles.
We hope you will enjoy JUXTAPOSITION as much as we enjoyed creating it! And last but certainly not least, a huge thankyou to John Dyson and Synthex for their collaberation on "Sentimental Values and Industrial feelings".

JUXTAPOSITION, THE BOCHUM BONUS is a supplement to the album JUXTAPOSITION. Musical creations which were intended for the first CD but didn't make it simply because of the limited capacity (79 minutes of music) of the medium. However, this doesn't mean that this album is a 'second choice' album. No, not at all! The Musicians are just as proud of the music on it as they are of the music on the first album. They had so much material that they decided to produce this second album instead of discarding it all. And here's the result! Tracklist:
