Deutsche Elektronische Musik 2
Experimental German Rock and Electronic Music 1972-83
Soul Jazz Records
Soul Jazz Records’ new Deutsche Electronische Musik 2 is our second voyage into the world of German electronic music from the 1970s and early 1980s.
This double CD pack/Two volumes of double vinyl (with over 2 ½ hours of amazing music!) features a stunning line-up of seminal German groups: Can, Faust, Popul Vuh, Neu, Cluster, Amon Duul II, La Dusseldorf, as well as a host of lesser known and more obscure groups and artists such as Agitation Free, Broselmachine, Niagara and many more!
As well as the original pioneers, Deutsche Electronische Musik 2 also features many of the second wave of German electronic artists and groups from the late 70s and early 80s (DAF, Asmus Tietchens, Rolf Trostel) who successfully connected new wave, minimal synth and a European post-punk avant-gardism with the earlier more established Krautrock pioneers who began at the start of the 70s.
The double CD pack comes in unique box-edition with large booklet and excellent extensive new sleevenotes (by David Stubbs, writer for Wire/THe Guardian and author of the definitive recent Krautrock book) as well as lots of exclusive photos.
The vinyl edition comes as limited-edition two volumes of heavyweight vinyl, super-loud, gatefold sleeve double-albums featuring all sleevenotes and text.
