CD version of this awesome ambient-not-ambient compilation by German DJ/producer Gerd Janson that includes exclusive tracks by artists such as ├,me, Move D, Marco Passarani, Roman Fl├╝gel, and Tom Trago. Musik for Autobahns is the result of asking Gerd Janson for a collection that starts where previous efforts left off. While Computer Incarnations for World Peace (his compilations for Sonar Kollektiv) concentrated on tipsy new wave music done by jazz-funkers or neo disco-ists, Autobahns has an unintentionally strong leaning towards ambient-not-ambient, Kraut pleasers, and codeine house, i.e. industrial ambient and electrifying new age. It's all new and exclusive material by people who once or twice crossed paths with the compiler. You will hear ├,me with their modular slambient concept sitting next to Tom Trago's off peak-time duties, Roman Fl├╝gel with an old DAT tape wunderkind that shares a side with Move D in love, outsider dance from CF & Daywalker alias Entro Senestre and Willie Burns as well as a greasy-sounding Marco Passarani and Tensnake's romantic pop appeal that is a counterpoint to Maxxi & Zeus (better known as Quiet Village) and their "Passion," for all beauties that lie beyond. This sometimes unlikely gathering is hopefully unified by its non-parochial view of dance- and living-room floors, ambient noise and its effectiveness as a soundtrack to long rides up and down the Autobahn. Other artists include: Marcus Worgull & MCDE, Suzanne Kraft, Weird Guilders, Acoustic High-End Research, Young Marco, and Osborne.
