Gerd Janson compiles an exciting ambient-not-ambient compilation that includes exclusive tracks
by ï¿½me, Move D, Quiet Village Marco Passarani, Roman Flï¿½gel and Tom Trago!!!Musik for Autobahns is the result of asking Gerd Janson for a collection that starts where previous efforts left off. While Computer Incarnations for World Peace (his compilations for Sonar Kollektiv) concentrated on tipsy new wave music done by jazz-funkers or neo disco-ists, Autobahns has an
unintentionally strong leaning towards ambient not-ambient, kraut pleasers and codeine house, i.e. Industrial Ambient and Electrifying New Age. Itï¿½s all new and exclusive material by people who once or twice crossed paths with the compiler. You will hear ï¿½me with their modular slambient concept sitting next to Amsterdamï¿½s Tom Trago off peak time duties, Roman Flï¿½gel with an old DAT tape wunderkind that shares a side with Heidelbergï¿½s very own Move D in love, outsider dance from CF & Daywalker alias Entro Senestre and Willie Burns as well as a greasy sounding Marco Passarani and finally Tensnakeï¿½s romantic pop appeal that is a counterpoint to Maxxi & Zeus (better known as Quiet Village) and their ï¿½Passionï¿½ for all beauties that lie beyond.
This sometimes unlikely gathering is hopefully unified by its non-parochial view of dance- and living-room floors, ambient noise and its effectiveness as a soundtrack to long rides up and down the Autobahn.
