We used to organise “Electric Spectrum Experience” in Groningen every year, an electronic live music event. Due to the Pandemy we skipped it in 2020/21. Because we already decided on the artists in 2020 we thought it might be a nice idea to let them play their set live in their own studio. And so it went! Phrozenlight, Gert Blokzijl, Skoulaman & Son of Ohm on one album!
“This album is created because of the Covid-19 Lockdown. We could not play live in 2020, but we still wanted to give our fans some new music, so we decided to make an album with new not previous released music.
All music was recorded live at the artists private studio’s. So called realtime compositions… 😉
Another Son of Ohm song on vinyl, Telefunken Baby from Zeitgeist. This is the wonderful ‘Head Rush’ by Fruits de Mer!!
This is the promotional text by Fruits de Mer:
We love 70s German bands round here, in case you hadn’t noticed – so after ‘Head In The Clouds’ and ‘Head Music 2’, we have ‘Head Rush’ – a 3LP+CD collection of tracks that show the continuing influence of bands such as Can, Neu!, Harmonia and Kraftwerk, and the ‘motorik beat’ that was pivotal to some of the most enduring recordings to come out of Germany in the early seventies.
Artists involved are a combination of old friends of the label, artists we met through recent projects like ‘Head Music 2’ and ‘Clouds’, along with some Fruits de Mer innocents, who will no doubt be regretting it in the morning: with contributions from as far afield as Peru, Australia, Italy and Fleetwood, Lancs I think it’s fair to say the motorik beat goes on.

Three LPs of motorik-tinged or drenched music, together with a bonus CD of tracks that arrived late, didn’t quite fit the overall theme or wouldn’t fit onto vinyl (30 minute tracks are a bit of a challenge) – but we wanted to share with you
