"The third incarnation of the legendary krautrock project Kluster/Cluster expands its audience with the contemplative, mature, and intelligent electronic music of Echtzeit. Hans-Joachim Roedelius, Onnen Bock, and Armin Metz are Qluster, founded under the name of Kluster in 1969 by Roedelius, Dieter Moebius, and Conrad Schnitzler. Kluster were responsible for two milestones of electronic music. Schnitzler quit the band two years later, leaving Roedelius and Moebius to carry on as Cluster. When the duo....

“Elemente -- album number seven from the third incarnation of the legendary krautronic project Kluster/Cluster springs a surprise with a minor sensation: sequencer lines. Using an array of exclusively analogue instruments, Hans-Joachim Roedelius, Onnen Bock, and Armin Metz have recorded eight tracks which, at one and the same time, are intrinsically hypnotic and sublimely beautiful. In principle, Elemente was created in much the same fashion as earlier Qluster albums: the three musicians met up in...

"Kluster -- Cluster -- and now Qluster. Fragen documents the extraordinary shedding of skin of one of the most important German electronic groups. Hans-Joachim Roedelius was there from the beginning (1969), with Onnen Bock taking the place of Dieter...

"Kluster (1969) metamorphosed into Cluster (1971) and Cluster became Qluster (2011). In a period spanning over 40 years, Hans-Joachim Roedelius was a driving force behind this unique transformation. Now, as Qluster, he has recorded together with Onnen...

"Synthwaves pays homage to the masters of the past, yet it feels fresh and enchanting. Crisp, interlocking patterns are modulated and mutated with mathematical precision into eight pieces of pristine, post-kosmische sounds to float away to. During two intense weeks in Berlin, Thorsten Quaeschning and Ulrich Schnauss locked themselves in a studio full of vintage synthesizers, analog sequencers, and drum machines, and the result is a gorgeous set...

Interestingly enough, this release is a soundtrack to a documentary. There are 4 long-ish tracks (short by their standards, but still) and a bunch of very short tracks. But it still sounds like them!

These three musicians have worked together in various configurations since they were 16 year old students in the 70's and formed R.M.I. in 1993.

This is the sort of thing that Garden of Delights do so delightfully well; this is a previously unreleased album by a basically unknown outfit from 1975 who were a local, underground / experimental German outfit. But not only do you get the album, which was never released anyway, you get 20' of bonus live tracks. Yow.

A completely legitimate reissue of the first album by A.R & Machines, which also happens to be the best-known and also one of the best of them. Achim Reichel is a mostly forgotten krautrock pioneer whose history traces back to The Rattles (Germany's...

"The first ever reissue of Requiem's For A World After, originally released in 1981. Dark, progressive, synth ambient meets Berlin-School sounds on this obscure kraut album, which "tells the story of a world annihilation through nuclear war." For A World After is full of delayed psychedelic electric guitar, effects, cold drum machines, waves of analog keyboards (Korg MS20, Casiotone 201, Crumar DS-2, Jupiter-4), and cosmic atmosphere.

First-time ever on CD for this Sky Record title from 1978. At the time, this was the height of modernity in its Kraftwerk-ness. Now it still is fine but boy-oh-boy, synthesizer technology sure has changed!

This was the first solo album by Roedelius, one half of Cluster and one third of Harmonia, two of the most significant Krautrock bands of the 1970s. In my opinion, this album is by far his greatest achievement as a solo artist (he has a zillion solo...
