InfoLtd LP23rd September 2016

In anticipation of the 35th anniversary next year one of electronic music's most influential recordings, the legendary "E2-E4", from 12.12.1981 gets an official rerelease by Manuel Göttsching on his own Label MG.ART... Carefully overseen by the Master himself.

+ 180g vinyl 35th anniversary reissue LP on MG.ART with embossed chess board artwork.

One of the few records Gottsching released under his own name, "E2-E4" has earned its place as one of the most important, influential electronic records ever released. What sets it apart from music that came before is a steadfast refusal to follow the popular notions of development in melody and harmony. Instead, "E2-E4" continues working through similar territory for close to an hour with an application to trance-state electronics missing from most of the music that preceded it. Though the various components repeat themselves incessantly, it's how they interact and build that determines the sound -- and that's the essence of most electronic dance music, that complex interplay between several repetitive elements.
