Tangerine Dream ‘Quantum Gate’ – Out Now.

September 29, 2017

hello, the new tangerine dream album has been released today.
edgar had planned ‘quantum gate’ as the first full album of the next phase in the evolution of the band which he referred to as the ‘quantum years’.
no question – it’s been a major challenge to finish this project without him, but we’re hoping that we somehow managed to do justice to the concepts and sketches he had left behind.
below is a little preview video for the track ‘tear down the grey skies’ – should you be interested in purchasing a copy: the album is available through the usual physical and digital retail outlets.
additionally a couple of bundle variations can still be obtained via pledge music:
https://www.pledgemusic.com/projects/tangerine-dream-quantum-gate

thanks to kscope, pledge music, andy king’s ‘zest’ group here on fb among many others for their continuous support throughout stormy times.
wishing everyone a good weekend – and let’s celebrate the 50th anniversary of edgar’s unique musical vision which had such a remarkably profound impact on the development of electronic music and way beyond.
the dream will always be the same… 😉

5 hours of ambient, electronica and berlin school favourites from 5 decades

April 18, 2017

sunday’s ambient marathon at spiritland is now online – have a listen if you have some spare time to drop out… 😉
didn’t use any fx for this set, so some of the transitions are a bit sketchy – maybe just look at it as a selection of some of my favourite music rather than an actual ‘dj set’. hope you’ll enjoy…
