“Experience and shape your creativity,” This is the mantra that drives the new Gronland compilation, "ELECTRI_CITY 2." The second volume is a brilliant collection which features the best of the electro-synth sound of Düsseldorf' between 1970 and 1980. "Electri_city II" takes its listeners on an intelligent and sophisticated roller coaster ride through the chapters of Germany’s recent musical history. While the first compilation was promoting the release of the book Electri_city: Elektronische Musik Aus Düsseldorf, which immediately sold out shortly after its publication, “Electri_city II" accompanies the release of the book in its English edition.  This new development once again shows the great interest towards the sound of Düsseldorf’s '70s and' 80s - and how its pioneers have created a large number of works in which you can always discover something new.  "Electri_city II" can be seen as the continuation of a series. The compilation, which is over an hour long between big hit, popular songs a well a more niche works, sports a beautiful dynamic variety of sounds born in Düsseldorf while at the same time focusing on those elements that bind them inextricably together. New tools - Minimoog, ARP Odyssey, Roland System 100, MC4, the legendary Korg MS-20 and the Roland TR-808 - have enabled musicians to develop a new hybrid musical style that fuses punk with classical teachings, creating a synth-organic electronic music between virtuosity and amateurishness.
