Hot on the heels of the recent release of Soul Jazz's latest Deutsche Elektronische Musik collection (the third, in total) comes this timely reissue of the 2CD set that started it all. Eight years on from its original release, the collection remains arguably the best primer you can find on "krautrock" and "kosmiche". Full of drowsy, far-sighted 1970s electronic workouts, trippy art-rock and left-of-centre, experimental gems, the collection draws together cuts from German scene titans - think Can, Neu!, Faust, Tangerine Dream, Ash-Ra Tempel, Harmonia and Popul Vuh - and lesser-known artists, with extensive, detailed liner notes to put the kosmiche movement in context. Simply essential.
