HARALD GROSSKOPF "Oceanheart" COSMIC KRAUTROCK SYNTH REISSUE LP
Reissue of 'Oceanheart', the 1986 follow-up to 'Synthesist' by Ashra drummer Harald Grosskopf. Whilst its better known predecessor dealt on the cusp of Krautrock's twilight period and new age spheres, 'Oceanheart' very much sounds of its mid '80s era with polished digital drums and synths balanced between the dancefloor and Miami yacht decks. The DJs really need to cop a listen to the taut, arpeggiated funk of 'Eve On The Hill', the MIDI-tethered tablas, slick bassline and sparkling pirouettes of 'Pondicherry Dream', and the airborne swing of 'Minimal Boogie', whilst suave home listeners and yacht-owners should check out the piquant, elegant waltz of 'While I'm Walking' and the sonorous ambient mysteries of 'Oceanheart' and the shuffling charm of 'Coming Out'.
