Manuel Göttsching ‎ E2-E4

Our classic this week is Manuel Gottsching’s seminal 1984 masterpiece, famously recorded by the Ash Ra Temple maestro in one take. Played by Larry Levan in the Paradise Garage and Jose Padilla at the Cafe del Mar and everyone in between, shamelessly sampled to create Italian dreamhouse favourite Sueno Latino. One hour of pulsing, hypnotic, looping guitars and synths, it demands that you sit down and listen to the whole piece.
