In many ways the history of Klaus Schulze is the history of ambient electronic music. The composer, as the anthology Essential: 72-93 demonstrates, has explored everything from spacey krautrock and meditative new age to jazzy fusion and proto-electronica. Schulze even made the jump from analog to digital in the mid-1980s. Yet he has never surrendered his love for warm, often playful soundscapes. If you're a fan of legends like Eno and Vangelis, definitely explore the world of Klaus Schulze.
