In the last few weeks I especially enjoyed low-key and relaxing music, kinda to compensate the fucked-up heat. Because that’s a genre I never had much contact with (apart from some post-rock acts but none pure-electronic artists) I stumbled across a whole bunch of musicians via Spotify. German electronic music producer Ulrich Schnauss was one to make a lasting impression on me, especially his 2007’s album “Goodbye”. Schnauss excels in composing soothing ambient landscapes that simply don’t bore the listener. It’s a constant up and down in tension and an overly dynamic record. Absolute highlights are the tracks ‘Stars’ and ‘Goodbye’ because of their appropriate usage of vocals and catchy tunes. If you’re in search of chillout music that doesn’t necessarily just ripple away in the background, I can clearly recommend all of Ulrich Schnauss’ work.
