Boomkat Product Review:
Some of you probably will already be familiar with this album, some of you will no doubt be familiar with its creators - Cluster's Dieter Moebius and Hans-Joachim Roedelius and Neu!'s Michael Rother, but if you haven't heard 'Deluxe' (and its equally as essential partner album 'Musik Von Harmonia') then you need to get acquainted.
"There's a live drummer on the set – Mani Neumeier of Guru Guru – and although he still plays with a spare, circular mode that recalls the Harmonia rhythms of before, there's also a slight bit of propulsion here too – one that pushes the keyboards and guitars alongside nicely. There's also some spacey vocals at times, which when coupled with these other elements, gives the record a sound that's a bit like early Neu – although still a bit more electronic overall."
