"Fred und Luna" are two mannequins living in a fashion boutique in Karlsruhe, Germany. They serve as muse for musician, lector, poet and photo/video maker Rainer Buchmüller. Inspired by his doll friends and his love for German electronic music of the past decades, Rainer Buchmüller under the alias “Fred und Luna” produces his self-created genres Elektrokraut and Krautelektro: both a modern combination of repetitive rhythms, beautiful melodies, electronic soundscapes and elements from the Krautrock era...

Fred und Luna provide a mesmerizing trip from Krautland through Electronic Fields to Hypnotonia‒exploring the textures of haunting melodies, luscious dreamscapes and tribal, dancefloor-ready beats, on their new album Im Tiefenrausch.

There's a hint of Jean-Michel Jarre's output in the '80s underlying this album. For me, this is a sub-section of electronic music that never seems to age. It sounds retro, modern and futuristic all at once...

The 2-disc album contains 12 tracks (1 hr, 16 min, 12 sec) and pretty much covers all bases, so if you're a fan of electronic music you'll find much to enjoy here.
