Manuel Göttsching’s ‘E2-E4’ may demand a background 4-1-1 even if it is a cult classic often requested by in-the-know Balearic Dance aficionados and Kosmische Musik fans. Anybody who has swayed and spun to the house classic ‘Sueno Latino’ on a sunlit Ibizan terrace will be familiar with the sound even if they are unaware of the original piece from which the Italo-house DJ-producers sampled. The hour-long improvisational piece is cited as one of the most influential proto-house/techno records although its inception had much humbler intentions. Read more about the album here.
