Ledernacken were early pioneers to blend elements of Rock, Industrial and Dancefloor, with some African Ethno to it.

Intelligently goofy, and pleasantly twisted.

Limited to 3000, each cover had its own art splash.. I have 504..Jealous? I didn't think so.

Peter Baumann

Remember him?

Well you can here and here..

Ex-Tangerine Dream super tronic producer.

During the 1980s, he founded a record label, Private Music, specializing in instrumental music in a style popularly referred to as New Age. Artists signed to the label included Yanni, Patrick O'Hearn, Jerry Goodman, Suzanne Ciani, and former bandmates Tangerine Dream. The label was eventually sold to Windham Hill Records' parent company, BMG, who continue to distribute some of the back catalogue of its more successful artists. Baumann has since kept a low profile from the music business. YAWN!

Come check out this Synth pop post Disco Prog gem.

The result is an haunted, mysterious travel through an unknown synthscape..

16 Bit

These are some early steps of 3 people from Frankfurt/Germany who some years later will be considered as tremendous influence for the German Dance Scene. Luca Anzilotti & Michael Münzing will collect platinum records as the Producers behind Snap! And Sven Väth, as we all know, becomes Germany's DJ Guru..

Extreme Nu Beat sound, the precursor to German trance? Yaa..

You decide!

Michael Sembello

Would you like some Chardonnay with your synth?

You know who he is..
I don't know why I chose to post this...

Lets not mention that song!

Michael Sembello was born in Philadelphia in 1954. A talented songwriter, guitar player and vocalist, he started his career joining Stevie Wonder's band in the first seventies. Later on a became a well known session player for the likes of Sergio mendes, the Jackson 5, Stephen Bishop, Randy Crawford, David Sanborn and many others.

So hop on your electronic Yacht, and and whip out the Vienna sausages, cause Sembello turned out the electro jams that mom would have approved.

1. Futurologischer Congress

The name "First Futurologischer Congress" is the title of a book by the celebrated science Fiction writer Stanislaw Lem (author of such works as "Solaris") whom the band were lucky enough to meet during his residence in Berlin.

"There are musical parallels with the Human League, Simple Minds, OMD, neo funk and new romanticism with nods to Wire and Pere Ubu from the constant use of electronics. Lyricially the direction lies somewhere between early Fehlfarben, Abwärts and DAF veering towards Ideal...what emerges is outstandingly produced pop music, And not for the 1st FC well travelled road to damnation in the manner of Einstürzende Neubauten," Musikexpress 8/´82
