Tyndall - Sonnenlicht (1980)

"Sonnenlicht" is the first album by the german synthesizer duo "Tyndall". Very atmospheric music similar to Cluster, Tangerine Dream and Kraftwerk.


Tyndall - Traumland (1981)

A German synthesizer duo under the single name Tyndall. Their four released albums were typical for Electronic Music at that time. After the duo split, Jurgen Krehan continued to release albums in a different style, going the way of New Age and relaxing music, and changed his artist's name to Nik Tyndall.

Leon Lowman - Syntheseas (1980)

As well as a devoted painter and surfer of the East Coast, the synthesizer loving Leon Lowman privately released two albums “Syntheseas” (1980) and it’s follow up cassette only “Sound Horizon” (1982). Something of a homage to his love of the local seashore, the albums also express Leon's pure love of the synthesizer sound and reflect his unique melodic wanderings. With Leon's albums meeting little commercial success at the time of there release, both albums have in recent years become highly sought after.

Amorphous Androgynous - A Monstrous Psychedelic Bubble vol.1 (2008)

Amorphous Androgynous is one of the Future Sound Of London's most well-known aliases. Used for their early-1990's album Tales Of Ephidrina and their more recent releases The Isness (2002), Alice In Ultraland (2005) and The Peppermint Tree & The Seeds Of Superconsciousness (2008).
"A Monstrous Psychedelic Bubble" is a gorgeous compilation of psychedelic rock music and some songs are really rare and beautiful. This is a compilation put together by someone who obviously has a taste for good music and its maybe one of the best for that genre.

Serge Ramses - Secret (1978)

Serge Ramses is a french keyboardist/composer and his real name is Serge Lafosse. The music is undeniably progressive electronic, influenced by the Berlin School but without the sequencers. Serge Ramses has a cinematic approach to his compositions.


Zorch - Glastonbury Live (2001)

Formed in 1973, Zorch were England's first totally electronic band, pioneering integrated performances of synthesizers and lightshow. Originally a four-piece, by 1975 Zorch were performing as a duo: Basil Brooks and Gwyo Zepix played just three monophonic EMS analogue synthesizers, but were augmented by Silver (dance) and a full-on psychedelic lightshow.The great Zorch concert :The clean, clear multi track recording is by Graham Hinton, Gwyo and Basil were in top form and it's simply a great record of the best Zorch gig I have witnessed to date. Plus Basil has come up with just the right cover.

Roedelius - Selbstportrait VI ,The Diary Of The Unforgotten (1972-1978)

Hans Joachim is a pioneer in the field of the exploitation of electrically generated tones, sounds and noises, and belongs to the founders of contemporary popular electronic music. His discography lists about 80 releases, and there are more than 10 productions ready to be released in the future.
He was a founding member of groups such as:
"Geräusche", "Plus/minus", "Per Sonare", the free artslab "Zodiak" in Berlin, "Kluster", "Cluster", "Harmonia", "Meeting Point Vienna", "Friendly Game", "Aquarello" and "Tempus Transit".
The Diary of the Unforgotten gathers a variety of home recordings crafted between his duties in Cluster and Harmonia and collaborating with Brian Eno during the years spanning 1972 and 1978. These are primarily lo-fi, improvised sound sketches, or “self-portraits” as the artist calls them, that reflect the pastoral calm of the riverbank behind his house. Synching up the synthesized atmospherics of the studio so they move as one with the water, meadow, farm animals, and passing wildlife outside his window, Roedelius offers listeners a glimpse into the solitude of his creative process with these ten compositions—something that anyone who has been following his legendary career can appreciate. The Diary of the Unforgotten is an essential piece of Roedelius history and a diary well worth remembering

The "Analogy Vol. 1" compilation was spawned under the ruling that each artist could use no more than 3 analogue synths (not counting drum machines, effects units, etc.). The music ranges from traditional sequencer-based berlin school (create, syn, altres, modulator esp), via melodical (remotion, emmens, aerts, tescee), ambient (ellis and roach, 4m33s) to experimental (nerell, roach and oken, storey).
