Deutsche Elektronische Musik 3: Experimental German Rock And Electronic Music 1971-81

// December 8th, 2017 // No Comments » // Electronic Dance Music

This latest instalment in Soul Jazz Records successful Deutsche Elektronische Musik series delves
deeper into the German nation s vaults to bring a fascinating new collection that again brings together
a selection of classic German electronic and rock groups, including Neu!, Cluster, Popol Vuh, La
Düsseldorf, Agitation Free, alongside a host of rare tracks by lesser known artists which includes
Michael Bundt, Bröselmaschine, Dronsz, Achim Reichel and others.
The music of Deutsche Elektronische Musik 3 ranges from the introverted pastoralism of Hans Joachim
Roedelius and Bröselmaschine, to the angular and futuristic electronic experimentations of Klauss
Weiss, Pyrolator, Deuter, Michael Bundt and others, to the proto-punk of La Düsseldorf and the heavy
space, progressive and cosmic rock of Missus Beastly, Niagara and Dyzan.
The music on Deutsche Elektronische Musik 3 was all recorded in the 1970s up to the early 1980s, at a
time when forward-thinking German electronic and rock groups were searching for a new musical
identity in order to separate themselves from both the cultural legacy of post-world war two Germany
as well the cultural imperialism of USA and UK rock. In this process German groups created some of
the most unique and inspired music, the defining motorik beat alongside a host of ethno-musical
influences from far afield including Turkey, India, Brazil as well as the musical and futurist
possibilities of developments in electronics and technology itself.
Deutsche Elektronische Musik 3 is released as a heavyweight 3xLP, deluxe double CD pack and digital
release. Please note that this is the CD format. The new extensive sleevenotes are by David Stubbs,
who is the author of the acclaimed book, Future Days: Krautrock and the Building of Modern Germany
(Faber & Faber).

// December 6th, 2017 // 3 Comments » // Electronic Dance Music

UK three CD collection. This release charts the birth of synthesized pop music in the 1980s and ultimately the roots of contemporary electronic dance music. The importance and continued popularity of ’80s pop is not to be underestimated, and the emergence of serious synthesized music producers in Kraftwerk, the Human League, Heaven 17, OMD, Yazoo, Ultravox, Talk Talk, Japan, Devo, Sparks, Gary Numan, New Order and the Pet Shop Boys, all of whom massively pushed the boundaries in experimenting with (mainly) Roland synths in this era, ultimately showed the way for the House and Techno producers of the ’90s to the present day. Within this more serious side there was also some brilliant, pure Synthpop from the Thompson Twins, Duran Duran, Spandau Ballet, Thomas Dolby, Simple Minds, Propaganda, Erasure, China Crisis, Belouis Some, the Lotus Eaters, a Flock of Seagulls, Howard Jones, Blancmange and the Associates.
