German composer Deuter is known primarily as one of the founders of ambient new-age music. Yet his earliest work, believe it or not, is brain-melting psychedelic awesomeness. His 1971 debut album, simply titled D, is a key release in the krautrock/kosmische-music canon. The record is a thick, throbbing fusion of delirious space rock, tribal-like fogginess and electronic buzz. In all honesty, fans of Deuter's latter work might not know what to make of the powerfully strange brew that is D.
