More tracks selected by the Running Back head honcho, Gerd Janson, for our continuing Music For Autobahns series. This 12" includes tracks previously only on the CD release plus some exclusives...varied and roadworthy electronics that can also be used in cycle lanes and footpaths...TIP!We commissioned Gerd Janson for a collection that starts where previous compilations 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. It’s all new and exclusive material by people who have crossed paths with the compiler at one time or another.
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.
