Yup winter time, perfect for the ambient goodness. I have really been into ambient music for a few years now, and this is quite possibly my favorite electronic ambient artist (aside from Tim Hecker). A few years back I started hearing amazing things about this Wolgang Voigt project called Gas. So i tried to seek out this elusive ambient album called “Pop”, and it was nowhere to be found in any of the bay area record stores (this was before it was reissued). So after weeks of searching, SUCCESS, i found the album on some Czech blog and it quickly became on of my favorite albums. And just last year Voigt released a box set of 4 albums he did under the alias Gas. Wolgang Voigt is a great electronic musician who is based out of Cologne, Germany. Dude has an endless list of monikers he goes by which include All, Auftrieb, Brom, C.K. Decker, Centrifugal Force, Crocker, Dextro NRG, Dieter Gorny, Digital, Dom, Doppel, Freiland, Fuchsbau, Gelb, Grungerman, Love Inc., M:I:5, Mike Ink, Mint, Panthel, Popacid, Riss, RX7, Split Inc., Strass, Studio 1, Tal, Vinyl Countdown, Wassermann, X-Lvis and even sometimes just plain ol’ Wolgang Voigt. Anyhow, this album is disc 4 in the box set and it is a MUST HAVE!
Gas – Pop
