One of the best synth-keyboard record labels in the world, Germany-based Spheric music continues releasing high-quality electronic music. After many years of issuing critically acclaimed electronic CDs, Spheric is back in 2022 with Here And Why, the fifth album by the artist known as Klangwelt. There are plenty of comparisons being bandied about, including Euro-Trace sounds of Jean-Michel Jarre, Vangelis and also Germany’s own Kraftwerk. The brainchild of Klangwelt is audio guru Gerald Arend and he truly excels on this pulsating album of high-tech electronica.

Being all-instrumental in nature, there are no borders to the accessibility of the sounds of Klangwelt. Whatever keyboard-based instrument Klangwelt implements to get across his music – from piano to synths and mellotrons the sound soars through the sonic galaxies to great effect. With 12-tracks, clocking in just under 78 minutes, Klangwelt’s Here And Why is surely one of the finest electronic music releases of the past year.
