Klaus Schulze has been rolling out his extensive sounds, playing his legendary sequences and creating this unique ‘Schulze atmosphere‘ for more than 50 years now. With Deus Arrakis the electronic legend now presents his new studio album that contains three brand new tracks with more than 77 minutes total playing time.
74 year old composer, musician and producer Klaus Schulze, born in Berlin, was known all over the world as the pioneer of Electronic Music and master of the Moog synthesiser. He shaped the ‘Berlin School’ and is the forefather of innumerable Electronic Music styles and genres. The ‘godfather of Techno Music’ – as he was fondly called by some internationally-known DJs and remixers – rolled out his extensive sounds, played his legendary sequences and created his unique ‘Schulze atmosphere’ for more than 50 years. Beginning with Tangerine Dream and Ash Ra Tempel, Klaus created over 50 solo albums, including Irrlich, Mirage, X, Dune, Farscape, Kontinuum, Silhouettes, and now Deus Arrakis. Creating either under the moniker of Richard Wahnfried or in his various collaborations with great artists like Arthur Brown, Michael Shrieve, Rainer Bloss, Lisa Gerrard or lately Hans Zimmer: Klaus Schulze always remained faithful to his unmistakable style of making music, while keeping an open mind for innovations and experiments.
Deus Arrakis will be available as high quality triple LP edition in a 3LP gatefold with black 180g vinyl, etching and printed inner sleeves as well as CD version in a digipak.
