Info from AZURE VISTA RECORDS:
Pure Berlin-school bliss from synthmeisters Thorsten Quaeschning and Ulrich Schnauss. Synthwaves pays homage to the masters of the past, yet feels fresh and enchanting. Crisp, interlocking patterns are modulated and mutated with mathematical precision into eight pieces of pristine, post-kosmische sounds to float away to.

During two intense weeks in Berlin, Quaeschning and Schnauss – both students of the great, late maestro Edgar Froese – locked themselves in a studio full of vintage synthesizers, analog sequencers and drum machines, and the result is a gorgeous set of purely electronic music. As the title suggests, a bit of tongue-in-cheek playfullness was allowed during the process – however, all of these pieces sparkle with real emotion and warmth.
As with the finest Tangerine Dream soundtracks it's the kind of music that paints vivid pictures on the canvas of the listeners mind: synth plucks hang in the air like glaring neon in metropolitan dusk, and zero-gravity pads hover like ghostly morning mist travelling over empty coastlines. Poly-rhythmic patterns are allowed to build - slowly but steadily - bar after bar, until synth-Satori is reached. By the time the last track on this album runs out, it's obvious these two producers have themselves become masters of their craft.

2. QUANTUM GATE RELEASE BY PLEDGEMUSIC
Finally Tangerine Dream’s new studio album Quantum Gate is due for release on September 29th 2017, coinciding with the 50th anniversary of the band. Edgar Froese founded Tangerine Dream in 1967. You can already pre-order Quantum Gate for signed album formats, exclusive merchandise and bundle offerings.

More details on Pledgemusic: http://www.pledgemusic.com/projects/tangerine-dream-quantum-gate



PS: Of course our EASTGATE MUSIC shop will offer the Quantum Gate album, vinyl, shirt, poster and The Sessions EP etc. as well from 29th September on (but no signed items).

The first EP/Cupdisc out of the new series The Sessions will be an additional great gem for many fans enjoying spontaneous and exciting improvisations from the band.



______________________________________________________


3. AUTOBIOGRAPHY FORCE MAJEURE + CD & EP RELEASE + RELEASE PARTY

Edgar’s autobiography on Tangerine Dream is about to be finalized, but we regrettably have to postpone the release to 14th July 2017 as English translations and the layout of the English book version aren't ready yet. Please apologize the inconvenience. As we would like to release both books – the German and the English version – at the same time, we still have to wait for its finalization. You maybe can imagine that we don’t like our English speaking fans experiencing a disadvantage towards our German speaking ones who would probably discuss the book's content already in social media if we would decide for a release of the German version at this point of time. We think you understand very well that we would like to avoid this situation. Once again thanks so much for your generous patience and your great support for the book project. The book is worth the wait.

Good news are that we will have a BOOK RELEASE PARTY in the last week of July in Berlin including a reading and meet and greet. (Of course we will also come to the UK later in the year.) We are still waiting for the confirmation of the location and exact date and time. 20 fans who participated in the pre-sale of the book will be invited to the release party directly and will be chosen by lot soon, then informed individually by Eastgate. We will let everybody know as quickly as possible where and when the party will take place. Due to limited capacities a registration by email will then be necessary.
     
There will be two CDs coming along with the book, a full CD album and an EP or so-called CUPDISC as Edgar would say. The CD and EP, both have the title: LIGHT FLUX  and will be released on 14th July as well. The first 500 pre-sale participants of the book will receive the full CD album for free.

All further pre-sale participants who will pre-order the book until 13th July 2017 will receive the EP for free. The EP is the single release of the full album containing a part of the album tracks. As naturally Edgar sadly can’t sign the book nor the CDs as it was envisaged once (which would have been made the gems even more attractive for collecting fans), we won’t go for a limited CD or EP. So everybody will have the chance – when not being among the first 500 – to at least buy the full album and also the EP later in our shop if desired.

More details on the releases will follow soon, attached you can already have a look at the CD covers.

5. NEW VINYL RELEASE: PARTICLES

The latest double EP of Tangerine Dream - PARTICLES - will now be released as VINYL (2LP) on the UK label IHM (Invisible Hands Music). IHM have already successfully released OUT OF THIS WORLD and QUANTUM KEY as vinyl.
By the way the masters of all IHM vinyls have been produced at the famous Abbey Road Studios in London. IHM always guarantee a high level of quality with regard to their products and we are delighted that many fans still appreciate the sound of a good old (new) vinyl.

Quantum Gate Pre-order 'Quantum Gate' for signed album formats, exclusive merchandise and bundle offerings.

Tangerine Dream’s new studio album Quantum Gate is due for release on September 29th 2017, coinciding with the 50th anniversary of the foundation of the band. In late summer 2014, Edgar Froese, Thorsten Quaeschning, Ulrich Schnauss and Hoshiko Yamane began to work on what was planned to be the first album of Tangerine Dream’s Quantum Years – a new phase of the band that Edgar wanted to use to introduce a couple of substantial changes. Consisting of himself, long term collaborator Thorsten Quaeschning (synths), violinist Hoshiko Yamane and new member Ulrich Schnauss (synths), the Quantum Years promised an updated, contemporary take on the band’s trademark sound of the 70s and 80s: sequencer-driven electronica covering a wide range of moods and atmospheres from ambient soundscapes to energetic, upbeat moments. Non-musical ideas relating to the field of quantum physics and philosophy had inspired Edgar to attempt a translation of these concepts into music. Very sadly however Edgar passed away in early 2015 – requesting that his wife, visual artist and TD’s manager for the last 15 years, Bianca Froese-Acquaye would ensure that his vision for the Quantum Years would still be realized. Throughout the last two years Quaeschning, Schnauss and Yamane therefore worked hard on achieving a result that would match Edgar’s expectations – as well as the ones of TD’s loyal fanbase. It’s worth noting that the compositions appearing on the album are not only based on theoretical concepts and ideas Edgar had outlined, but also on a large number of actual musical sketches that he luckily had already prepared during the initial phase of the band’s reformation process. Therefore, Quantum Gate is just as much a new beginning as it is a testament to Edgar’s never-withering inspiration and ever-flowing creativity.
