Here they are, the TOP 10 artists of 2018, at least according to my listening habits.
#10 Frank Fischer
German bassist and producer of several easy listening new age albums.
#9 Peter Seiler
Composer of “new instrumental music”.
#8 Tangerine Dream
The most famous Berlin School band.
#7 Igneous Flame
Ethereal and Dark Ambient project.
Danny Wolfers’ most popular project. His music is a “hybrid form of slam jack electronix combined with deep chicago trax, obscure & romantic ghetto technofunk, EuroHorror Soundtracks, Italo disco and such.”
Software is a chillout new age group consisting of Peter Mergener and Michael White. They appeared on Klaus Schulze’s Innovative Communication label.
#4 Klaus Schulze
German electronic art music composer. He was briefly part of Tangerine Dream as well as a cofounding member of Ash Ra Tempel.
G.E.N.E. stands for Grooving Electronic Natural Environments and is a Canadian New Age Band including the guys from Software (Michael Weisser and Peter Mergener).
#2 Richard Bone
Space ambient producer from Atlanta.
With 399 scrobbles, Biosphere takes the number one spot. His Novelty Waves release was one of the first EPs I bought. The track sounds as fresh in 2019 as it did when it came out in 1995.
