    "A Posteriori" is to be released in Germnay on September 22nd 2006, and other countries from September 25th. Translation of the albums title "A Posteriori" can be a little confusing, but for the most part it is taken from a philosophers point of view such as "retrospective or analyze past experiences" or "to come to a decision or a conclusion due to past experiences". All expressions are very interesting to say the least.

    Exclusive Feature - Looking Back to Voyageur: EPK 2003
    May 22, 2005
    Cretu-EPK5 Cretu-EPK5 It was 8th September 2003 when the long awaited Enigma 5 album was released... now looking back to this time with today's prospective, we are proud to present an EXCLUSIVE ultra secret Enigma Voyageur Interview with Michael Cretu. This interview actually appeared on an "E5 - Electronic Press Kit", that is only issued to media sources but was never available to the public.

    In the past these type of releases were in video or CD-rom format and are normally easy to obtain through various 2nd hand CD stores that specialise in promo's etc. The E5 EPK has remained a highly hard to find item for some reason - and after the discovery of its existence, it took almost a year for us to receive this Press Kit.

    The "E5 - EPK" is available on DVD and contains an Micheal Cretu interview which coincides with previously published Virgin's Voyageur Interview in 2003. The "E5 EPK DVD" features the latest ART studio and the Cretu's new house. Michael Cretu is very relaxed and explains the mostly criticized direction of E5 - Voyageur, plus his life in Ibiza and the future of Enigma. The DVD runs approx 25 mins and has a edited down version of the interview and then 20 minutes of just Cretu answering questions.

    In comparison with previous Electronic Press Kits, this one exceeds all before it, even giving us the chance to see Michael driving to a bar/restaurant, playing with his dog and drinking beer, smoking a lot (as always). If you ever wondered what he thinks about the new direction of the project or producing an Enigma 6, this is a perfect piece for you and will answer most of the unanswered questions.

    We are able to bring you 2 types of insight into the " E5 EPK" - a 5 minute video clip that was originally featured on Turkish TV which is a edited down version of the 20 minute interview. The other presentaion features various stills taken fro mthe DVD and interview which give you a more pictorial impression of the "E5 EPK".

    FINALLY Some Andru Donalds News, The 5th Album On The Way!
    April 18, 2005
    Andru Donalds 2005 It has been 4 years since we heard from any news Andru Donalds music, the famous male vocalist of "The Screen Behind The Mirror" and "Voyageur". Finally we can share the latest hectic news with Enigma fans..

    Andrudonalds.com has been launched! This is the first official web page dedicated to the artist. Andru will release his new selftitled album later this year called "Andru Donalds V"

    Andru sold more than 7 million records as the voice of Enigma and as an international solo artist, making two fine records with Enigma's masterminds Michael Cretu and Jens Gad. His first project with Cretu & Gad resulted in the international platinum single "All Out of Love". The trio's last collaboration was "Let’s Talk About It" in 2001.

    A chance meeting in New York led Steven Schenfeld to reunite Andru (he is also a featured performer on the soundtrack to Til Schweiger's latest movie "Barfuss") with Eric Foster White.
    The result - Andru's 5th album, which has captured the magic of that first collaboration. Recorded in New York and Colorado and due for release later this year, "Andru Donalds V" is a fantastic mixture of pop, rock and reggae, packed with potential hits and showcasing Andru's soaring better-than-ever vocals against White's masterful production.

    Their musical collaboration found its way into the hands of Steven Schenfeld, a Capitol Records A&R exec working in New York under the tutelage of the legendary Bruce Lundvall (Norah Jones).
    You can premiere the samples from "Andru Donalds V" album on the official web page, these new tracks are titled as : "Dreamer, One of These Feelings and Stars"

    Jens Gad’s "ACHILLEA" album Press Release:
    State-Of-The-Art Sounds Meet Archain Melodies
    March 22, 2005
    FINALLY SOME ANDRU NEWS, THE 5TH ALBUM ON THE WAY! Achillea Sleeve Two outstanding artists of Danish origin have combined their remarkable talents to explore their Viking roots and put it in a new musical perspective: As a writer and co-producer Jens Gad, born to Danish parents in Munich/Germany on August 26th 1966, has contributed immensely to the global success of Enigma, the project of multi-platinum producer Michael Cretu, which has brought New Age sensibilities into the world of dance clubs with a succession of highly praised albums since their 1991 superhit "Sadeness". Jens, a passionate guitarist, drummer and composer, has also worked on a number of other internationally successful projects such as albums by Andru Donalds or Milli Vanilli. Today Jens Gad has his own top standard studio on the beautiful Spanish island of Ibiza.
    Helene Horlyck has started to sing classical music at the tender age of ten. After many years of classical training, the singer, who nowadays lives in London, has also gained a lot of live experience with improvised music.

    Helene and Jens, though both not actually living in Denmark, share a deep interest in the ancestry and mythology of their Scandinavian homeland. Thrilled by each others talents, they decided to create a sophisticated chill out journey through the traditional "Nine worlds of Viking myths", carried by Helene’s uniquely sensitive classical voice and the emotional solo guitar of Jens. There is a story behind each song. All of these are based on Viking mythology and often on archaic poems – a world inhabitated by seers and seeresses, elves, the historic monks of Lindisfarne, rune masters, giants and gods such as Odin, a world, that was marked by places like Cape Porcupine, Labrador, or Staraja Ladoga, the first Viking staging post on the trade route to Russia, or the island Sanday in Orkney.

    In order to transform these fascinating stories into equally fascinating music, Jens Gad used his vast producers experience to develop an unusual work process: He encouraged Helene to improvise for hours on most diverse musical backgrounds – partly singing in Latin and in ancient Swedish – and thus to develop a variety of new melodies. This way he captured the spontaneity of her singing – then he would compose the music around the recordings from these singing sessions, using Helene’s voice like a kind of solo instrument. The result is totally unique: highly attractive state-of-the-art-sounds meet with archaic melodies, extremely sensual singing is contrasted with delicately bluesy guitar playing, slow sexy grooves carry finely woven sonic textures.
    The music of Achillea is both stimulating and calming, entertaining but relaxing, full of peace and beauty, but also strikingly vital.

    Jens Gad Special Feature and EnigmaMusic.com EXCLUSIVE Announcement
    January 11, 2005
    Jens Gad
    Enigma News Brief Special
    A NEW DEFINITION OF MUSIC : JENS GAD’S BRAND NEW SOLO ALBUMS
    EnigmaMusic.com has been speaking again with professional producer, musician Jens Gad as he continues his journey with innovative music.. Finally we can reveal 4 project titles of his brand new solo work. There are 4 albums to be released in 2005, titled as follows:
    • "ACHILLEA - feat. Helene Horlyck "The Nine Worlds of Viking Myth"
    • "THE SECRETS OF OBSESSION "Music For Seduction Moments"
    • "10 NATURAL TRACKS TO RELAX"
      "An Exclusive Music Selection By P.G."
    • Untitled concept album with Spanish singer Luisa Fernandez
    Jens Gad the Enigma co-producer and writer has spoken exclusively to EnigmaMusic.com and our affiliate web pages with some interesting news and information on his forthcoming solo proejcts.
    In Jens own words to EnigmaMusic.com he describes each of the forthcoming releases;
    " So, all these new projects are my concepts produced in my own studio, I was experimenting with different elements and inputs to take my 10 year Enigma influence a step further. ON the "ACHILLEA" album I´ve featured the unusually sensitive classical voice of the danish singer >Helene Horlyck - through an ongoing dialog between her voice and my solo guitar we follow the traces of our Danish ancestors - the Vikings".
    "On the (so far untitled) album with "Luisa Fernandez" I´m using Spanish lyrics only, I just love the passion and emotion of spanish language, so this emotional musical voyage is mainly carried by her speaking Spanish poems of love and devotion - also other cultural influences can be heard."
    "The Secrets of Obsession" is a compilation of ideas I had during the last years with Enigma but finally weren´t used as tracks on the albums. So I finished them now and will soon release them as an album. As unique ethnic influence I used the chinese "Er-Hu" violin, a traditional instrument that makes a beautiful sound between singing and sitar. On this album I collaborated with German producer Torsten Stenzel who also contributed two beautiful tracks.
    "10 natural tracks to relax" is another compilation I created with these ideas, it was originally sold to a global major industry brand (which doesn´t want to be mentioned) as a special promo gift and we finally decided now to put it on the market - eventually with another title. All these 4 albums are sold to different German/UK labels and internet platforms, within 6 weeks we´ll have the release schedules ready and then we will give you the links to the shops."

    ...So what else is on the horizon?
    " There’s a lot to be discovered on the music scene at this time and I’m dealing with a very famous coffee company in the US right now - which want to promote themselves with an exclusive CD, that will be played and sold in each location.....and as I mentioned there is still a lot to be discovered and being innovative with new music markets is very exciting ....plus I'm always on the lookout for interesting new talent and I am currenly looking for unique female singers to compliment future ideas and projects that I have - so please e-mail me at gadstudios@enigmamusic.com if you are a singer and feel you have what is required.
    I have also just recently returned from the US where I have been working with my brother Toby on a project for the 15 year old singer "Jayden Sky". My brother is also a very talented professional musician who has now contributed to 10 Billboard Hit Records, had around 50 record releases with artists like Milli Vanilli, Enrique Iglesias and many more European superstars". (For More Information on Toby go to his web site:www.tobygad.com)

    "Through your steady belief and trust in the Enigma project you have all made my life possible and I now have a lot of possibilities having set up my new studio complex here in Ibiza. As a thank you to Enigma fans I´m featuring some special promo offers through these web pages"
    ......

    Sandra Speaks and More News on the Cretu Front!!
    November 11, 2004
    As reported at radionews.de, Ruth-Ann's new record will be out in February 2005. Not much is discussed about the project, including no mention of the CD Name, nor any track listings. The article did go into further information regarding Sandra and Michael Cretu...As roughly translated the article reads:
    The sensation of the year! More than 2 000 fans celebrate Sandra in Dresden! "hello Dresden! It is after a 9 year recess. I stand again live on the stage!" with these words opened Pop singer, Sandra's appearance on Sunday October 3rd, 2004, the concert brought in fans from the Czech Republic, Poland, Switzerland and Spain.

    More than 2000 fans heard many of the huge hits by the singer including "Maria Magdalena", Little Girl" & "In The Heat Of The Night". Sandra euphorically was celebrated and had to give several encores. Many fans appeared enthused. Some had never experienced Sandra, live.

    Since 1988 Sandra has lived with her husband Michael and their home hides in the forest (in the North West part) on sunny Ibiza Island.
    In the radionews.de interview Sandra is quoted as saying, "It's a very irregular routine. We have no day-night-rhythm. Michael works 36 hours in the studio, then 13 hours of dead sleep in order to compose then again 36 hours. Routinely, mornings around five, I bring him a steak roast, so that hunger wont take over. Sleep comes either during the day or not at all"

    The article then adds that the kids attend an international school, learning English, German and Spanish. The article continues with, QUOTE "Presently Michael Cretu works (on) the debut-album of the English singer Ruth-Anne Boyle, it should appear in February (2005)" After that "the gentleman of the Gregorian monk songs" would like to make the next Enigma Album."
    Sandra meanwhile plans no new (CD). She says "If I have the feeling, that the public wants to have me again, I will arrange myself after that" Sandra adds "I would want to be sure, and be ready, therefore I am not not in a hurry"

    Udo Lange the Music Boss That Signed Enigma - Leaves Virgin
    November 17, 2003
    A party was held in Munich on Friday Nov 14th to honor the music entrepreneur that signed Enigma/Michael Cretu to Virgin - Udo Lange. Lange was a friend and fan of Michael Cretu and Sandra music and consequently signed them both to record deals at Virgin in the 80's. The farewell party was attended by both Michael and Sandra as well as some surprise guests including Louisa Stanely (now married and a mother of 3) and almost all of the people who worked for Virgin at some point in the company's history. I do not have all of the reasons why Lange is leaving Virgin but it is thought to be another round of cost cutting by the parent group EMI who like many other record companies loosing money due to lack lustre music sales. Udo Lange was from a generation of true music gurus who knew the business and music scene and was never frightened to take a risk on what he believed in - hence Enigma 1. His influence will be truly missed at Virgin/EMI Germany

    Voyageur The brand new Enigma album "Voyageur" will be released in the USA on September 30th, 2003 Virgin confirmed today. The single is not expected to be released in the US at this time. Most other countries dates are targeted for September 8th and I am in the process of finding out the exceptions if any.

    "Voyageur" Album Sleeve
    August 7, 2003
    Voyageur The brand new single "Voyageur" which was scheduled for a August 25th release date has now been pushed back until September 29th, 2003. The single will be available to radio stations to play from August 11th onwards. The release date of the brand new album of the same name "Voyageur" is now being confirmed as September 8th, 2003 and no delay is expected. The later date of the single is too enable more promotion after the albums release rather than before.

    No other information on the albums worldwide release dates as of yet - but rumors are that the USA date will be at the end of September. This is still a rumor and as soon as I have some concrete information it will be announced.

    The "Limited Edition" of the new album that has been publicized on some online CD shops across Europe consists of a special sleeve configuration only. It is not a DigiPak release but something really special and very different from the description I have been given. More details in the coming days - so stay tuned!

    New Enigma Album "Voyageur" Could Be Slightly Delayed
    July 9 & 10, 2003
    Virgin Germany announced on it's web page on July 9 that that it has delayed the new Enigma album "Voyageur" until September 22, 2003. But it changed back again on July 10th to the original date of Sept 8th. My guess is that it will change and that the web crew at Virgin changed it too quickly. In the meantime I'll change it back to September 8th until they can get their act together!! The single of the same name is still listed as the same date of August 25th, 2003.

    Sandra DVD Release expected in 2003 - E5 News
    February 11, 2003
    I have learned today that a brand new Sandra DVD is planned for release sometime this year. Early plans are already under way to feature a pictorial and video history of Sandra from the 80's thru present day. The DVD will not just be a conversion of the 1987 "Ten on One" and the 1992 "18-Greatest Hits" videos previously released, but a more comprehensive compilation of her career. At this time it is too early to reveal the full content and any release date of the DVD - but keep watching this space for more details as we receive them. Please do not contact the record company or the management of Sandra as this only creates extra workloads for these people.

    Enigma 5 is still in production in the new studio in Ibiza and is following the time frame I laid out in last months report. As soon as I have more information I'll post it on here on the Enigma News Page.

    The latest rumors from Ibiza are that the new E5 album is still in production but nearing completion. No date as to when Michael feels the new album will be ready, but by all accounts the main tracks are completed with just the vocals to be recorded and mixed - and then the whole album can be mastered before handing over to Virgin Records. Then Virgin will have to co-ordinate the whole schedule for a worldwide release date - then go into production of the CD in each country. So please be patient and keep checking back for the latest updates.

    Sadeness Orchestral Remix Performed
    January 4, 2003
    Anne DudleyBBC Radio in the UK has aired a very unique Sadeness remix that was performed on 16th October 2002 by the BBC Concert Orchestra. It was part of a live 2 hour show. The show was called "BBC Club Classical" and included other great tracks like Cafe del Mar (Energy 52), Sweet Lullaby (Deep Forest), Rapture (Iio), Harry's Game (Clannad) and many more. Club Classical, "the ultimate chill-out live" was launched in October 2002 as a three concert series, bringing relaxing classical music, with a new slant, onto the live concert platform.

    Anne Dudley arranged, conducted and performed in the concert. She is famous for doing such tracks as Moments in Love (Art of Noise). She played the piano for the concert, which I don't think makes an appearance in this track. Anne was also credited on the sleeve of the E2 album as samples were taken from her Songs from the Victorious City album

    The concert was originally aired on BBC Radio 3 on the 30th December 2002. This is where this recording has come from. A CD is planned to be released by EMI, however if you live in the UK the concert was so popular a re-run is planned for 1st February, which (I think) is being played on Radio 3 on February 2nd 2003.

    The Sadness (Part 1) track was played in a set of just two tracks. It was set number 4 called 'What Dreams May Come', it contained 'Les Nuits (Nightmares on Wax)' then Sadeness part 1 (Enigma). It's a lovely version of the classic and very different from any other version you've ever heard.

    An Enigma Mystery Solved - Jens Gad Picture Exclusive!!
    December 21, 2002
    Many many times over the past 10 years I have been asked these questions -
    Who Is Jens Gad?
    What does Jens Gad look like?
    What has Jens Gad worked on before Enigma?
    Is Jens Gad a real person or an alias used by Michael Cretu?
    Why is Jens Gad so elusive?
    Well now all of the questions can be answered - I have been lucky enough to establish communications with Jens and I was delighted to receive some pictures of Enigma, TAAW and Sandra's elusive co-producer and writer. In the coming weeks I am putting together a more comprehensive "Who is Jens Gad" web page on this site. But in the meantime I would like to give you all a early Xmas present with a sneak preview of Jens. As far as I am aware this is the first picture ever of Jens Gad...anywhere!!....and needless to say we at www.EnigmaMusic.com are so pleased we could bring you this exclusive photo. This picture was taken inside his brand new home studio in Ibiza. Jens is very proud of this studio as he built most of it himself - more of that in the coming weeks on his special page.

    The Latest E5 News - Seasons Greetings
    December 16, 2002
    Unfortunately there is not much news to report on the progress of the E5 release. I have had first hand news though, that Michael and Jens are still currently working hard in the studio on the new album ( week of December 9th ), but there have been no completion dates given to the record company as of yet. Back in July Michael was optimistic that he would be able to hand over the completed album to Virgin by the end of 2002, with a possible release date of Jan/Feb 2003. This now looks highly unlikely, and with the album still currently in production even a release date at the end of the 1st quarter now looks somewhat dubious. Obviously Virgin has nothing to add at this point, which is fully understandable as they are patiently waiting like the rest of us.

    NOVEMBER 2002

    Probable E5 Delay!!
    November 4, 2002
    The possibility of the new Enigma 5 album being released in the 1st part of 2003 now looks unlikely to happen. Michael Cretu first announced back in late July, on German TV t hat he was hopeful to have the album completed by the end of 2002 with a possible Jan/Feb release date. Since the move into the new house in late September, Michael has been back working again on E5. But realistically the time required for both Cretu to finish the album and for Virgin to co-ordinate worldwide release in Jan/Feb 2003 is looking ominous. I spoke with Virgin today and they mentioned that "they can not confirm a release date of the new album at this time", which reading between the lines confirms that the initial optimism for the early 2003 release date has subsided. Although the Jan/Feb date is still achievable by both parties, do not be surprised that the E5 release date would now be pushed back into the 2nd quarter of 2003. As with other Enigma album releases this type of release uncertainty is always common place, but I do know for a fact that Michael is working hard on E5 as this report goes to press.

    Michael and Sandra finally get to move
    September 5, 2002
    Finally Michael and Sandra get to move into their brand new house and studio in Ibiza. After many years of plans, design, planning permission and building the house and studio it is now complete. The move into the new studio has finally begun and most of the details are now complete. All of the recording equipment has been moved and installed and is back up and in working order. Allowing for a few weeks of disruption until the final move is complete, Michael should be back recording the new Enigma 5 album by the end of September. It has been a long time since this house project has been initiated and the Cretu's are both happy at the final completion of the project. I wish the Cretu family the happiness in their beautiful new house. Now onto the new Enigma album!! :-)

    Another track selected for Sandra single!
    August 22, 2002
    Crocodile Music announced 2 news briefs, one contradicting the other on a new Sandra single and track listing. The first one announced that the new single would be "I Close My Eyes". This track was to be accompanied by 2 other "Wheel of Time" album tracks - Silent Running and Wheel of Time. Then later in the day this was changed to the now confirmed track listing: 1. I Close my eyes 2. Forgive Me - Chill Out Mix 3. Wheel of time 4. Forever - Multimedia Video
    The release date for the single is not until November 11, 2002 in Germany and you can only think this was done to promote the album for the Christmas sales period. The track is a ballad written by Andy Hard a.k.a. Angel the singer of the Enigma track "Return To Innocence"

    August 1, 2002
    Michael Cretu spoke in an interview with German TV about the release of the forthcoming new Enigma 5 album. Speaking during an interview from his restaurant "Goya" in Ibiza he mentions that he is hopeful to have the production completed by the end of 2002, and the album ready for release on either January or February of 2003. Cretu does not mention anything about the title or content during the interview but he does look happy and healthy! ( see pictures from the interview along this news brief ). Virgin confirmed they are working hard along the same time frame as Cretu mentions, but they added cautiously, that dates this far in advance for a world released can always change.

    MAY 2002

    E5 Rumors Confirmed
    May 9, 2002
    Over the last few months rumors have been circulating that Michael Cretu had started some work on a new Enigma album. Sandra's album was finally handed over to Virgin in February. Since that time we heard some rumblings that a new Enigma project was in the early stages. These rumors were finally confirmed today in a e-mail from the management company Crocodile Music. Stefano from the EMB asked what project was following the Sandra album and the answer was "demo's for a new Enigma album". But the new project, as always with Enigma, is still a very long way off. The new Enigma album will be delayed by Michael and Sandra finally moving into their new house and studio complex. The move will take place over the next 4-5 months. The mixing desk is also due for some updates and this will be moved back to Germany for the work to take place. So this can all add up to a very long time frame before we can expect to see any completed Enigma project - and as always with anything Enigma - things are always changing. Still this is very good news that Michael is again working on "his favorite baby" - Enigma!!!

    Finally - Sandra Album and Single Release Dates
    February 12, 2002
    Finally an announcement of dates from the management for the new Sandra releases. The new single will now be called "Such a Shame" and will be released on March 25, 2002 in Germany. The single will feature 4 tracks 1. Such a Shame (Radio edit) 2. Such a Shame (Remix, title t.b.a.) 3. Such a Shame (Remix, title t.b.a.) 4. Such a Shame (Instrumental)
    Doing a little research I am almost positive this song is a cover version of the Talk Talk original from 1984 and taken from the album called "It's My Life". Mark Hollis lead singer wrote and sung the original.
    The new album called "Wheel of Time" will now be released on April 22, 2002. The final track listing and song writers is as follows:
    1. Forgive Me (Cretu/Cretu) 2. Footprints (Filz-Schoenherz/Filz-Schoenherz) 3. Motivation (Inker/ Inker) 4. I Close My Eyes (Jonas/Jonas-Cretu) 5. Pefect Touch (Cassandra-Filz-Jedner/Filz) 6. Silent Running ( Robertson-Rutherford/Robertson-Rutherford) 7. Such a Shame (Hollis/Hollis) 8. Now! (Cretu-Gad/Cretu) 9. Free Love (Gore/Gore) 10. Forever (Ries-Filz/Ries-Filz) 11. The Wheel of Time (Cretu-Gad/Cretu-Gad) This track listing supercedes any other previous listing. Worth noting that track 4 is written by Jonas aka Angel X in 1993 with the Cretu produced album on Columbia records "Welcome to the Soul Asylum". In 1996 he released the song called "Summer in Your Heart" on Polydor with lyrics from Klaus Hirschburger under the name Andy Jonas. But we all know him as Andy Hard (Angel) who sung Return To Innocence on E2.
    Track 9 "Free Love" was written by Martin Gore from Depeche Mode and was featured on their 2001 album "Exciter". This song was a ballad in it's original format. Inker and Hamilton made the 1988 song "Motivation" which is track 3.

    JANUARY 2002

    Classic Cretu Album Finally Released on CD
    January 26, 2002
    One of the most legendary solo Michael Cretu albums "Legionnaire; is to be finally released on CD. It appears in Virgin Germany's future release catalogue as a March 4th 2002 release. Late last year I had received news from a German DJ who had interviewed Michael in early December and he mentioned this was going to happen. Michael also mentions that the sound quality will be much better than the original vinyl release. The DJ also noted that Cretu sounded very excited about this release. The vinyl album was released in German and English, and this first CD version will be in German only. Also to be noted is the content of early Cretu releases differ from Enigma, but in a way they are similar as you can hear many of the Cretu influences in his earlier work in the recent Enigma releases.

    More information on the early work of Michael Cretu can be found at the Cretu - A Continuum web page.

A cover version of the Andru Donalds song "Simple Obsession", a "potential hit" titled "Perfect Touch", another cover version, this time the classic from Mike and the Mechanics "Silent Running" and what could be early Moti Special track called "Motivation".

    APRIL 2001

    Enigma "Best Of" Announced and Sandra Album title
    April 24, 2001
    News that 2 Enigma "Best of" albums will be released probably in November 2001. The first one which will contain all "Original" mixes and will also contain 1 new Enigma track will be called "Love Sensuality Devotion" The second CD called "REMIX ALBUM" will contain and I quote "all ENIGMA remixes, including a remix of the new single". Although not mentioned or stated in the press release is whether it will be a double album or just 2 single albums. My interpretation of this would be a double album. I am in the process of confirming this part of the information.

    A new Sandra album will be released as earlier reported on this page, and has now been confirmed by her management. The title of the album will be "Wheel Of Time" and it will contain 11-12 new tracks written by several writers and produced as ever by Michael Cretu.

    Virgin UK announces info of "Remember the Future" DVD
    January 2, 2001
    Virgin UK today formly announced on there Web Page more details of the up and coming Enigma DVD "REMEMBER THE FUTURE". Here is the press release in full:

    Enigma releases 'Remember The Future' on DVD
    Enigma has been around for over ten years and with only four albums have managed to sell over 25 million albums worldwide. Michael Cretu who is the brainchild of Enigma managed to unite cultures of all continents with rhythms, sounds and voices. Whilst many restless sprits were changing trends, styles and fashions on a seasonal basis, Enigma remains a continuum which reinvents itself time and time again.
    On 'Remember The Future', Cretu has chosen eleven songs that most reflect his memories of the future. There are eleven videos illustrating images that have never been imagined and it is the story of life.
    Here is the track listing for the DVD which will be released on 29th January 2001:
    Sadeness Part 1, Mea Culpa, Principles Of Lust, Rivers of Belief, Return To Innocence, The Eyes of Truth, Age of Loneliness, Beyond The Invisible, TNT For The Brain, Gravity of Love, Push The Limits
    Other features include the complete discography and Spoken Words - The Voice of Enigma.
    As for the inclusion of "The Voice of Enigma" I think this is referring to the new narrated storyline tracks added the the DVD. As far as I know the full length video of "The Complete Album Video" is not included, but I will check again with the record company. As for the release date that is wrong and it is as earlier mentioned on this Enigma news page at March 12th 2001 in Europe. The US release date is expected in March but no exact date reported yet.

    Enigma DVD Delays - and Enigma Studio upgrade!!
    October 5, 2000
    Virgin Germany told me today that the Enigma DVD - that was expected to be released late this year - could now possibly delayed until early next year. Work is still on going but the process has slowed down as the co-ordination and design is taking longer than originally planned. Although Virgin is still optimistic they could still release this year, the chances are beginning to look a lot slimmer than first thought. Check back for the latest updates on the DVD.

    Gunter Wagner, the Enigma studio designer along with Michael Cretu, has told me he is currently updating the studio in Ibiza with the latest EMAGIC LOGIC AUDIO 4.6 software. This software is the main backbone for the hard disk recording and sequencing. The latest upgrades are being done in the same studio as E4, and the new Andru Donalds were recorded.

    Push The Limits Chart Position
    May 17, 2000
    Push The Limits (ATB remix) has gained more spots in the UK Dotmusic Top 40 Club Charts (the #1 source and "official" charts of the UK) to number 16 this week.
    Also according to UK's Mixology Dance Chart (which is compiled of over 900 DJ charts) the song has climbed from #22 last week to #12 this week!!!
    This indicates that not only are the clubs increasing play of the song, but dance radio is as well. The release of the single in the UK is only two weeks away, so this should give it enough time to make a high entry point in the dance single chart the week of it's release.
    Also, for anyone living in the UK that is familiar with a club called THE NATIONAL, which is playing the song regularly, they have a website on the club with information and some music samples which is mainly mostly "house" music. Push the Limits is one of the featured songs available to sample as well.

    May 7, 2000
    Push The Limits (ATB remix) has entered the UK Dotmusic Top 40 Club Charts (the #1 source and "official" charts of the UK) at number 23 this week. Because the song has not been released on single in the UK (only DJ promos are available at the moment), it cannot enter the Dance Singles chart yet. However, the really good news is UK fans can now pretty much count on the single getting released there (unlike what happened with "Gravity of Love") since the song is being well received in the clubs and dance radio.

    Enigma 4 Sleeve Scans & Release Dates
    January 5, 2000
    The first "official" review on the new Enigma album The Screen Behind The Mirror has surfaced. It comes from this months Billboard US magazine and here is what they had to say:
    Enigma mastermind Michael Cretu has been remarkably low-key during the electronica revolution-despite the fact that his early compositions can easily be viewed as a key catalyst in starting the club-rooted movement. With "The Screen Behind The Mirror," Cretu claims his rightful place among the top-shelf artists of electronica, offering well-crafted material that could elevate the genre to a new level of creativity and mainstream credibility. Cuts like the percussive, yet dreamy "Gate" and the sweeping, cinematic "Push The Limits" are rich with complex melodies, insinuating rhythms, and the kind of hooks that make people sit up and take notice. In fact, the instantly memorable, hip-hop-inflected "Gravity Of Love," which features an enchanting lead vocal by Olive's Ruth-Ann, has the makings of a smash. It's an excellent introduction to one of the first must-hear albums of 2000.
