Soul Jazz Records Presents: Deutsche Elektronische Musik 4: Experimental German Rock And Electronic Music 1971-83

    This is the new instalment of Soul Jazz Records’ ground-breaking ‘Deutsche Elektronische Musik’ series, “a near-definitive guide to some of the world’s most extraordinary music” - The Guardian.

    This new Soul Jazz release features many of the classic German electronic and Krautrock groups from the 1970s and 1980s, including Can, Amon Düül II, Harmonia, Conrad Schnitzler, Agitation Free and Roedelius, as well as a host of lesser known artists such as Dzyan, Klaus Weiss, Gruppe Between and many more.

    Deutsche Elektronische rarities unearthed on the album include Kalacakra (whose fanbase included the great Moondog) and their superb ‘Nearby Shiras’, taken from their super-rare spiritual / psychedelic private press concept album ‘Crawling to Lhasa’ from 1972. 

    ‘Deutsche Elektronische 4’ includes a wealth of German electronic experimental artists - the seminal pioneering group Harmonia (Roedelius, Moebius and Michael Rother) and avant-garde guru Conrad Schnitzler, as well as lesser known synthetic artists such as Klaus Weiss, Deutsche Wertarbeit, E.M.A.K. (Elektronische Musik Aus Köln), Günter Schickert and others.

    Finally, the album also features an array of heavy and progressive German cosmic rock groups - Dzyan, Virus and the amazing Turkish/German tripped out sound of Alex’s ‘Patella Black’, recorded at Can’s Inner Space in 1973, produced by Holger Czukay and Jackie Liebezeit.

    ‘Deutsche Elektronische 4’ comes with extensive newly commissioned sleevenotes by David Stubbs, author of the seminal books ‘Future Days: Krautrock and the building of Modern Germany’, ‘Mars By 1980: The story of Electronic Music’ and ‘Krautrock: Cosmic Rock and its Legacy’.

    This album comes as a deluxe double CD edition with outsize booklet and slipcase, as well as a heavyweight triple vinyl edition with full colour inner sleeves. Both formats include full liner notes and extensive rare photography.

    STAFF COMMENTS

    says: I really can't get enough of these compilations. Superb, unheard of gems mixed in with some undeniable classics, and presented beautifully in true Soul Jazz style. Unsurprisingly brilliant.

        Richard Brown's Sweet and Kind was originally released and distributed locally in Gary, Indiana, in the mid-west of USA on the tiny Steeltown Inc Records, a label which despite it's size was nonetheless the first ever to sign the Jackson Five (pre-Motown) in 1968, the same year as this little-known gem.

        Soul Jazz Records/Sounds of the Universe continues its SOUL 7-inch series in fine style with this FANTASTIC cut following on from Brief Encounter, Arnold Blair, Johnny Adams & other earlier exclusive soul 45.

        Soul Jazz Records Present Punk 45 - Chaos In The City Of Angels And Devils: Hollywood From X To Zero & Hardcore On The Beaches

        ‘Chaos In The City Of Angels And Devils’ is the new installment of Soul Jazz Records’ ‘Punk 45’ series featuring an array of first generation Los Angeles punk bands including X, The Germs, The Zeros, The Urinals, The Weirdos and many more.

        This is the sixth ‘Punk 45’ release on Soul Jazz Records and follows on from the earlier releases covering punk from Cleveland, Akron, UK, USA and proto-punk, as well as the book ‘Punk 45: Cover Art Of Punk’ written in collaboration with Jon Savage.

        Unlike the other major cities of New York and London, punk in Los Angeles was pretty much ignored by the major record industry. As bands sprang up, Los Angeles punk also gave rise to a wide range of its own DIY independent record labels.

        Los Angeles punk came in two distinct phases - The first Hollywood groups (c. 1977-79) and the birth of hardcore in the surrounding Los Angeles suburbs and beaches (c. 1979-81). This album includes music from both periods to provide a fascinating look at underground punk in Los Angeles in its formative years.
