This is the new instalment of Soul Jazz Records’ ground-breaking Deutsche Elektronische Musik series. It features many of the classic German electronic and Krautrock groups from the 1970s and 80s – including Can, Amon Duul II, Harmonia, Conrad Schnitzler, Agitiation Free, Roedelius – as well as a host of lesser known artists such as Dzyan, Klauss Weiss, Gruppe Between and many more.

Deutsche Elektronische rarities unearthed on the album include Kalacakra (whose fan-base included the great Moondog!) and their superb Nearby Shiras, taken from their super-rare spiritual / psychedelic private press concept album Crawling to Lhasa, from 1972. Deutsche Elektronische 4 includes a wealth of German electronic experimental artists – the seminal pioneering group Harmonia (Roedelius, Moebius and Michael Rother), avant-garde guru Conrad Schnitzler as well as lesser known synthetic artists such as Klauss Weiss, Deutsche Wertarbeit, E.M.A.K. (Electronische Musik Aus Koln), Gunter Schickert and others.

Finally, the album also features an array of heavy and progressive German cosmic rock groups – Dzyan, Virus and the amazing Turkish / German tripped out sound of Alex’s Patella Black, recorded at Can’s Inner Space in 1973, produced by Holger Czukay and Jackie Liebezeit. Deutsche Elektronische 4 comes with extensive newly commissioned sleevenotes by David Stubbs, author of the seminal books Future Days: Krautrock and the building of Modern Germany, Mars By 1980: The story of Electronic Music, and Krautrock: Cosmic Rock and its Legacy.
