I always forget to check that Harald Grosskopf album, Michael already recommended to me twice... I should write the name somewhere LOL
That Space Art album is really good: my father had some of their music on cassette, I used to play it a lot when I was a kid... it was probably my first electronic experience Tongue

Hey Pierre, do you know Didier Bocquet?
He's a pretty obscure artist, but he released a couple of really interesting albums near the end of the 70s. The first one Voyage Cérébral is one of my favourite French electronic albums.

That Grosskopf album is such an easy album to get into if you already dig the style. Friendly like a labrador.

Cool that your dad knows Space ArtCool

Maybe I could make listen to two ambient projects:
 - Space Mégalithe, a duet influenced by the "Berlin School"
http:////soundcloud.com/megalithe1

- Ujjaya, ethno-ambient artist influenced by Steve Roach, Robert Rich, Brian Eno, Jorge Reyes and Indian music:
http://soundcloud.com/ujjaya-ethno-ambient

I saw them on stage last friday, it's some good stuff.

I came up with:
Tangerine Dream - Force Majeure
Heldon - Stand By
White Noise - An Electric Storm
Zombi - Spirit Animal
Klaus Schulze - X
Harald Grosskopf - Synthesist
Harmonia - Deluxe
Peak - Ebondazzar
Space Art - Trip in the Center Head
 
Great choices. That Zombi album has guitars (the others have bass only).
 
For electronic music that rocks, Mark Shreeve is practically the poster boy. All keyboards/synths, sequences and electronic rhythms, no guitars.
 
(from Nocturne, 1995)
 
(from Crash Head, 1988)
 
(from Legion, 1985 – featuring Tangerine Dream's Chris Franke as guest synthesist!)

Their best work, IMO. A fine companion to early '80s TD (one of the guys in YOU really reminds me of Chris Franke, too, haha).

Have a listen to those Shreeve tracks. I think you'll like them. Wink

This thread needs to be bumped (so does the Tangerine Dream thread), and I'll use the opportunity to pass along the word that a new CD reissue of Catspaw, the 1986 album by the US progressive electronic duo Emerald Web (1979-1990), was released this month.
 
Catpsaw is one of Emerald Web's softer albums, but great music nonetheless. If you enjoy albums like Tangerine Dream's Optical Race and Eddie Jobson's Theme of Secrets, this belongs in your collection. What's really cool about the reissue are the five early '80s bonus tracks, all of which have a different, darker flavor. Emerald Web had a very unique sound, with their synthesizers and sequencers complemented by an array of flutes and Lyricon wind synthesizer (and on certain albums, electric guitar and guitar synthesizer).
 
Listen to the entire album at this link (you can also order it there, directly from the label):
