Manuel Göttsching tells Chris May how he did it. Manuel Göttsching is probably best known for E2-E4, the groundbreaking solo album he recorded in under an hour at his Berlin studio in 1981. Released in 1984 and first championed overseas by the influential New York club DJ Larry Levan, E2-E4 was omnipresent on dancefloors during the late 1980s, when it was given a second life by remixers Sueño Latino. It can credibly claim to be the first electronic dance music album. But Göttschings innovatory credentials go back further than E2-E4. E2-E4, one of the few records Göttsching released under his own name, has earned its place as one of the most important, influential electronic records ever released. It's also the earliest album to set the tone for electronic dance music simply put, it just sounds like the mainstream house produced during the next two decades.

Both as a founding member of the Krautrock group Ash Ra Tempel and through his later solo work, Manuel Göttsching was among the true innovators of the musical aesthetic later dubbed electronica, with his 1984 release E2-E4 remaining a seminal building block in the subsequent development of styles ranging from techno to house to contemporary ambient music. Manuel Göttsching. E2-E4. After Ash Ra Tempel dissolved in the mid-70s, the krautrock bands leader Manuel Göttsching explored ambiance and minimalism. Improvised at home in an hour, E2-E4 became an electronic music landmark. Some classic albums have origin stories that threaten to eclipse the music itself. My Bloody Valentine almost bankrupted Creation over Loveless. Bruce Springsteens Nebraska was just a cassette demo that he carried around in his pocket before deciding to release it. Brian Wilsons inability to finish SMiLE caused him a mental breakdown. Manuel Goettsching - E2-E4. Story behind the cult ambient album, the predecessor of Techno & House music. George Palladev. Aug 28, 2017 6 min read. This is why Goettschings name was modified into Gottfather. Derrick May called the record with a chess-themed sleeve one of his favourites and its not surprising that many of his greatest albums reveal Goettschings influence. Carl Craig, a representative of the second wave of Detroit techno, released records under the pseudonym C2C4, which was a clear homage to Manuel, not to mention the countless remixes of his works.
