In 1977 Jürgen Karg released the album “Elektronische Mythen” on Mood Records. It would be his only solo record. It wasn’t his first endeavour in music as his music career began in the 1960s as bass player for German jazz legend Wolfgang Dauner along jazz artist Eberhard Weber and other musicians. But it was not until the 1970s that he switched his attention to electronic music.

Back in those days building up an extensive collection of synthesizers was a must in order to get your sound as versatile as possible. So in just 5 years Karg did just that: collecting synthesizers. His efforts culminated in the “Elektronische Mythen” LP. The system Karg had constructed was based on sequencers and 4 EMS synths, state of the art for the period.

The album is now being reissued on vinyl (available here) and CD (available here).

Check out a preview of the album:

Since you’re here …

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can - and we refuse to add annoying advertising. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
