Supersempfft - Let's Beam Him Up
Here's a venture into the Cosmic sound. I don't know much about these guys, only that they apparently created their own percussion synthesizer master computer called 'Roboterwerke'. Insane right? Yes, but this is the kind of insanity that we truly embrace. They used layers and layers of synth and electronic percussion with harmonies and cosmic lyrics. They used vocoders and drum machines and made thick heavy space funk. Starting up in the late 60's they were rumored to have influenced Herbie Hancock, Afrika Bambaataa and even Kraftwerk. Their sound is similar to Daft Punk but, outdates it by at least 30 years. Props to Supersempfft, even if you do have to make a fart sound when you say their name.
