Klaus Schulze + Rainer Bloss - Drive Inn

Artist: Klaus Schulze & Rainer Bloss
P:
1984 / 1990
Drive Inn is another album recorded by the duo of two Germans: Klaus Schulze and Rainer Bloss. This is the only album of theirs where the latter is the full contributor. Usually the album is attributed to Klaus Schulze and listed in his discography.
For Klaus, this was an experiment. Nevrtheless "Drive Inn" is the first album of his that features short compositions. They were written with truck drivers in mind. The compositions are either electronically aggressive, or they are monotonous in a typical Schulzian way.
The album can be pretty much summarized as follows: rhythm, rhythm and a bunch of wild sounds thrown in from time to time.

Klaus Schulze + Rainer Bloss - Drive Inn 1 + 2

Artist: Klaus Schulze & Rainer Bloss
P:
1984 / 1990 / 2022
Klaus Schulze has entered into numerous, highly interesting collaborations in his long career. He always consciously looked for artists who were a complementary antipode, who inspired him and enriched his own world of sound. In Rainer Bloss, whom Klaus got to know by sending him a demo tape, he found a partner who had exactly these requirements.Rainer Bloss was a trained musician and composer who composed and produced numerous soundtracks for films and music for theater plays in the former GDR until he moved to the Federal Republic of Germany. He was also the head of the Rainer Bloss Sextet and a member of the band Wir.
His virtuosity as a keyboardist, his very own compositional style, which at the same time allowed uninhibited improvisation, was the perfect prerequisites for a partnership with Klaus Schulze.After Rainer Bloss made his mark on the Klaus Schulze classic "Audentity" (1983, MIG01322), a nine-day tour with Klaus Schulze through Poland followed, which is featured in the famous live album "Dziękuję Poland" (1982, MIG01442). Rainer Bloss had already outgrown the role of guest musician, which is evident not least from the fact his name appeared on the cover on equal terms with the names of both artists as the first real joint work. During the long car journeys between the performances, the two musicians were often annoyed that there was hardly any music on the radio for long car journeys - and so the idea was born to record an album that was exactly suitable for this purpose."Drive Inn" was produced in September 1983 and is a concept album in which every track revolves around driving a car. Framed by “Drive Inn” and “Drive Out”, you are invited on an acoustic car journey, in which you both rest and linger.This concept was taken up again by Klaus Schulze and Rainer Bloss three years later: “Drive Inn 2” bears Bloss's clear signature here, Klaus Schulze composed the final “Highway” and was primarily responsible for the mix and production. The concept of “Drive inn” accompanied Rainer Bloss until his premature death on December 10th, 2015: “Drive in III”, produced in 1998, was the last album to be released during his lifetime. For the first time, the legendary first two albums in this series are lovingly remastered and re-released after they had not been available for decades.

Klaus Schulze - Audentity

Artist: Klaus Schulze
P:
1983/ 2005
Nr.: 15
The heavy rhythmic songs with weird noises are considered by some to be too clinical but, as a fan, you play these songs loud, really loud. The tracks on cd #1 are all more than 20 minutes long so they create a euphoric trance. The shorter numbers on cd #2 are more tranquil. The track order has been revised on this reissue to create room for a bonus track of almost 60 minutes. This is “Gem”, the original soundtrack of an Australian horror movie “Next Of Kin”, recorded in 1982. Because of the type of movie it’s from, the music is obviously dark and scary with a rhythm that reminds one of chopping axes and Jason masks, not very jolly and certainly not for weak stomachs (but very very good).
DeLuxe Edition incl. Bonus Track & enhanced booklet with new photos & liner notes

Klaus Schulze - Dziekuje Poland Live '83

Artist: Klaus Schulze
P:
1983/ 2006
Nr.: 16
The handful of concerts in big cities in Poland marked the end of a very long concert tour during the first half of 1983. Many praising words were written and said about these gigs in huge halls in front of many thousands of enthusiastic Polish fans.
Both CDs include one bonus track. “Dzien dobry!” is, as the title suggests, also taken from a Polish concert recording. It’s from the town of Gdansk which happened to be the very last day of the long “Audentity” tour in 1983. It is a version of the classic Schulze track “Spielglocken”.
The other bonus is not a concert recording but it’s the same era, from the early eighties.

Klaus Schulze – electronics
Rainer Bloss - keyboards
