Hi, 

I'm looking for bands to listen to that sound very like Tangerine Dream. This could be both old bands that have passed me by or new bands that are producing very TD-like music.

I'm not interrested in how bands are categorized or pigeonholed. So it makes no difference to me if they are called Ambient, New Age or Electronica as long as they sound very like TD. 

Thanks

Well, me. ;-)

However. I've pulled all the music off my website due to piracy. I might be releasing some on CD later in the year. 

Here's a preview below.

All done on home built modular synthesizers using 1974 technology. I spent four years building this - see Tech Talk on this forum - "Modular synth madness"  thread.

I like them all (some of them are a little hard to find mostly early 80-cassette releases. But most is easy to check out on youtube):

Zanov
Cosmic Hoffmann
Ian Boddy
Mark Shreeve
Winterstormer
Clara Mondshine
Adelbert von Deyen
Earthstar
Colin Potter

...and yes I too like the already mentioned Redshift

-usually for those with extensive discographies, earlier material is a better place to start than later (as in most genres).

@Dave: Looks like the setup of Larry Fast, the guy behind Synergy ;)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ul91n4okszA

To stay with the thread: Not sure if Synergy counts like a TD similiar band/project, but it's definitely very electronical

You may have heard Jean Michel-Jarre, and a favorite of mine is a British group called Radio Massacre International.

All you have to do is explore the Berlin School section of the progressive electronic department. 

Artists like Klaus Schulze, Ashra, Peter Bauman, Cluster, Popol Vuh, Steve Roach, Pete Namlook, Harmonia, Brian Eno, Neu!, Manuel Göttsching, Hans-Joachim Roedelius, Edgar Froese, Michael Hoenig, Redshift, Harold Grosskopf, Radio Massacre Internatinal, Wolfgang Riechmann, Node, You, Neuronium, Zanov, Cultural Noise and tons of others all fit the bill. 

Sounds like Tangerine Dream is a very vague question since their early stuff sounds nothing like much of the later stuff. They have released over 100 studio albums alone, so a more specific era will yield more specific results. I just cited the 70s period after the early Kraut albums. I assume you mean like "Phaedra" or "Rubycon."

BTW, many of these artists are similar but very few are more accomplished. TD were the cream of the crop. Only Klaus Schulze, Neu!  and Cluster are as interesting and in the top tier status in my world. (unless i'm forgetting someone!)

Yes but quite a few of those you namecheck has little in common with Tangerine Dream imp. Hm just checked my suggestions and noticed that the best (=the earliest) releases by Mark Shreeve and Ian Boddy are missing, but Colin Potter's cassette releases of the same era was all there. But positively surprised to find them all in the archives.

If it's the sequencer-driven sound you like (vs the droning spacey stuff), you might try:
  • Arc (DiN45)
  • Cosmic Ground
  • Node (DiN44)
More of the DiN releases can be found here:  https://din.org.uk/music

And you should check out the following blog for many more TD-like bands:

http://synthsequences.blogspot.com/

The specific genre (e.g Berlin School, Cosmic, etc) is given right below the track listings.

Lots of Kosmische fits the bill, plus various retro electronic bands.

The first one I thought of has already been mentioned: Michael Hoenig for Departure from the Northern Wasteland which is Phaedra-like.

They have much in common. You need to specify which era of TD you are interested in. If nothing I suggested appeals to you then you are seeking a lost cause because NOBODY sounds exactly like TD

A wonderful album, definitely "Phaedra meets Ricochet" territory. Essential.
