V.A. Mandarinen Träume: Electronic Escapes from the Deutsche Demokraktische Republik 1981-1989

ALBUM`````Mandarinen Träume: Electronic Escapes from the Deutsche Demokraktische Republik 1981-1989
GENRE`````Cosmic, Disco, Leftfield, Kraut

I only have this 8 track long compilation but if you have the links for the original 15 track long one please post a link.

Review from RA
The task of reviewing an anthology of music so virulently steeped in socio-political context raises two problematic questions. First: should a fair appraisal of artistic merit ever draw upon historical reference in order to justify present relevance? Second: if it must, can one ever hope to do so accurately without first-hand experience of the juncture to which it is so inextricably linked? A conclusive answer to either is elusive. Fortunate, then, that Mandarinen Träume should present enough of an aurally visceral experience in itself to avoid getting bogged down by such post-structuralist digressions.
