Deutsche Elektronische Musik: Experimental German Rock and Electronic Musik 1972-83 by Various

If you were asked to pinpoint the exact moment when the modern-times kosmische revival kicked off then you’d probably narrow it down to the release of ‘Deutsche Elektronische Musik: Experimental German Rock and Electronic Musik 1972-83’ back in 2010. This compilation saw Soul Jazz Records breathing new life into the post-war musical explorations of German acts like Cluster, Neu!, Dieter Moebius and Harmonia. Sehr gut stuff.

9/10 Phil 15 April 2010
Soul Jazz waltz over to Germany now for their next exploration into all things interesting with their look at the Krautrock scene from 1972 to 1983. I thought this was gonna be a doddle doing this one. I thought I'd be able to do it without even listening to it but looking at the track listing it's a reasonably varied and unusual selection of tracks they've chosen. I guess I'm more familiar with the big hitters of Krautrock like Can, Neu, Kraftwerk, Faust, Popul Vuh, Cluster, Amon Duul II, Harmonia etc. and they're all included here. You also get folks like Gila, Kollectiv, Michael Bundy, E.M.A.K., Ibliss as well as Roedelius, Ash Ra Temple, Tangerine Dream and lots more. It's a big ole meaty set spread across 2 CD's or 4 LP's. It varies in quality and there's certainly some unusual choices on here. I don't think 'A Spectacle' is the best Can song to choose but then maybe the less obvious way is a better approach? if you consider yourself a fan of krautrock music you'll find something new and exciting on here though. The E.M.A.K. track is a top slab of electronic pop music and I'd not heard of them before. Well worth checking out!!
