Electronic Sound Issue 39 2018 PDF
The new issue of Electronic Sound finds us in Berlin, yet again. This time round we’re taking a look at the past, present and future of a total Berlin institution – Tangerine Dream.

Of Germany’s two schools of electronic music (the other being in Düsseldorf/Cologne of course), the music coming out of Berlin was all about texture and mood, it was spacey, drifting and ambient, which was no surprise when you consider at the time West Berlin was a city where young men were exempt from national service.

Coupled with cheap rent, the place quickly filled with those whose idea of fun didn’t include serving in the army, but did rather involve creating the nation’s counterculture. And in Tangerine Dream’s case, they did that with synthesisers.

Elsewhere, we met up with Creep Show, our kind of supergroup featuring as it does John Grant joining Wrangler and sluggin’ it out on the mic with Stephen Mallinder. Their new album, ‘Mr Dynamite’, is an album of the year contender already!

We have the very last interview Can’s Holger Czukay gave before his sudden death last year and it found the great man in playful mood, as always.

Everything But The Girl’s Tracey Thorn has a chat about her new record, erm, ‘Record’, which is awash with synthy goodness, we catch up with 2 Bear’s Raf Mundell who has a second album and a second child to keep him busy, Gwenno, whose last album was in Welsh follows it with one entirely in Cornish, we join Liima live in Edinburgh, Moby goes Under The Influence, Age Of Chance talk us through their magnificent ‘Kisspower’ mash-up…

All of this and our Front section packed with this month’s favourite tech, toys, books, gadgets and the like and let’s not forget our bumper Back section, packed to bursting with all the latest album reviews.

When Giorgio Moroder says he’d like to talk to you, the best course of action is to sit back and listen. The colossus of European electronic music duly covers everything, from his early days with synthesisers to how Daft Punk placed him in the consciousness of millions of new listeners and how the art of the DJ sustains him.

We also visit Düsseldorf in this issue, where we pay our respects at Kling Klang, admire Florian Schneider’s father’s architecture, and we meet his sister, all in an attempt to get a psycho-geographical perspective on this ultimately mysterious band. We chat to Moby about his new album and his relocation to LA, to Colin Newman of Wire about the re-release of his solo albums, and to Kurt Wagner of Lambchop about his latest album which is a masterclass in the use of new sounds and textures. Mark Stewart of spectacularly resurrected agit-dub-punk-noise legends The Pop Group shares with us his faith in technology and sci-fi futures, while Baltic Fleet discusses Paul McCartney and 808 State. See if you can spot the mentions of Raquel Welsh, Dean Martin, Led Zeppelin, Freddie Mercury, The Rolling Stones and David Bowie along the way, and you might agree that it’s a dizzying mix this month.
