All of your favorites, in one place.
This is an epic 'best of' from the great Hans Joachim Roedelius one of the pioneers of Krautrock and early electronica. What's more, he's 74 years old and still producing music, now how's that for commitment to the scene? Working with Kluster, Human Being, forming Cluster with Dieter Mobius and working with Mobius and Michael Rother as Harmonia - the man has covered a lot of ground in his time, and that's never been as evident as on these two discs. We've got squelchy synthesized Krautrock classics, industrial jams, electro-pop, ambient, piano-led classical and more, the variety on here astounds me, I knew his work but you kind of become blind to the experimentation until you hear it all in one place. Listening to 'Works (1968-2005)' is like hearing a bible of electronic music, it contains so many important starting points for many sounds and genres it's quite amazing that it all came from the brain of one troubled producer. Listen to this and find out why you loved electronic music in the first place....(Boomkat)
