"Sky, the record company, were more than a little disappointed with the performance of Grosskopf's first solo effort "Synthesist", so there was no great sense of urgency as far as its successor was concerned. "they even halved my advance!" Grosskopf recalls. "Oceanheart" was released some six years after "Synthesist". "The album title reflects my love of transcendental meditation, of course it might be taken for watery esoterics." (A similar vibe was evident in the cover art, hence fresh artwork has been created for the reissue.) Musical equipment for the production was limited by the label's ongoing thrift programme. The first "Oceanheart" recordings took place "under the roof" in the lilli Berlin studio, Kreuzberg.They were completed at the spandauer studio by former Tangerine Dream member Christoph Franke. "We mixed everything down and recorded the drums there." harald grosskopf again played everything himself, except for the tablas. in keeping with its predecessor, "Oceanheart" was no bestseller, but, like "Synthesist", it attained cult status, rediscovered in recent years through the internet by a younger generation."
