Manuel Göttsching - E2-E4 LP

€25.99

In celebration of the 2016 35th anniversary of the December 12, 1981, recording of Manuel Göttsching's legendary E2-E4, one of electronic music's most influential recordings, Göttsching's MG.ART label presents an official reissue, carefully overseen by the master himself. Includes six-page booklet with notes and pictures.

"
As the story is sometimes told, Göttsching stopped in the studio for a couple of hours in 1981 and invented techno.E2-E4 is the most compelling argument that techno came from Germany-- more so than any single Kraftwerkalbum, anyway. The sleeve credits the former Ash Ra Tempel leader with 'guitar and electronics', but few could stretch that meager toolkit like Göttsching. Over a heavenly two-chord synth vamp and simple sequenced drum and bass, Göttsching played his guitar like a percussion instrument, creating music that defines the word 'hypnotic' over the sixty minutes ... A key piece in the electronic music puzzle that's been name-checked, reworked and expanded upon countless times." --Mark Richardson, Pitchfork
