Pegase is a French producer (the singer of Mintel Rose) who creates tracks that border electro and shoegaze, kind of like M83 (especially the vox) meets the distorted synth that we all know an love. I guess he is trying to get that heavy distorted sound a la My Bloody Valentine but with synths instead of guitars. I hear some Tangerine Dream in his tracks too. Cheers, Electrorash

The Death of Cornelius

Bob Rifo proves to everyone that he is a musical genius with this tune. He channels Vangelis, Giorgio Moroder, Tangerine Dream, Ennio Morricone, along with his raw punk rock emotion and crafts an overture that pays tribute to the mysterious CORNELIUS.

Risky Business: Tangerine Dream

The score for Risky Business is 80s epic synth greatness courtesy of Mr. Edgar Froese & Tangerine Dream. This is Tangerine Dream’s most commercial movie score for they have scored over sixty-five other films as well as released over a hundred albums.

Here is my favorite track off the soundtrack, very Steve Reich:
Tangerine Dream – Love On A Real Train

These are some Tangerine Dream-esque sounding tracks. John Frusciante said that this song is directly influenced by Edgar Froese’s solo album, Epsilon In Malaysian Pale.

Guy-Man from Daft Punk helped produce this track
