Pete Wilson Great to just listen relaxing to or while killing yourself on a run. Ist gut laddies. Favorite track: Die lange Gerade.

Nathan Goode Early German electronica in technicolor, a skillful blend of the more tuneful Kraftwerk, Harmonia and Tangerine Dream, with a dash of OMD thrown in. The back story hints at a parallel world that never was, where a genius East German sports trainer pulled music from Western airwaves over the Wall and reconditioned it to supercharge his athletes. A loving re-imagining of the Zeitgeist, there is warmth and contour that much of the source material lacks. Favorite track: Sandtrommel.

about

Kosmischer Läufer Berlin, Germany

For the first time since it was recorded in East Berlin over 30 years ago the music of Martin Zeichnete can finally be heard.
