Boomkat Product Review:
After dissolving the Cluster outfit he'd worked on with Hans Joachim Roedelius until 1981, Moebius continued to create fascinating electronic music for Sky Records right through the 80's. 'Tonspuren' was released in 1983, which with the benefit of hindsight, was to presage the emergence of techno with linear and streamlined machine rhythms, sparse synth experimentation and a freshly economical outlook for electronic music. It's almost possible to draw a parallel between the quivering neon synths and lolloping rhythm of 'Transport' and the nascent digi-dub movements of Jamaica at the time, and while the driving insistence of 'Nervös' may never have been used in a club, it certainly foreshadows much of the Industrial techno which was to rule Germany in coming years. However, it's probably the gems like 'Sinister' with it's dischordant metallic strikes and characteristic sense of melody or the baroque, Kraftwerkian melody of 'Rattenwiesel' that make this an absolutely essential inclusion in any self respecting electronic music fans collection. Highly recommended.
