Spanning works produced between 1971-1983, the 19-track compilation features artists including Can, Conrad Schnitzler, Roedelius, Dzyan, Harmonia, Klauss Weiss, Günter Schickert, Amon Düül II and more.

The compilation is released by a quote from Hazrat Inayat Khan, which reads as follows: “When I open my eyes to the outer world I feel myself as a drop in the sea. But when I close my eyes and look within, I see the whole universe as a bubble raised in the ocean of my heart.”

Deutsche Elektronische Musik 4 follows Soul Jazz’ release of a 5×7” box set of Brazil funk and soul, called Brazil Funk Power: Brazilian Funk & Samba Soul, in August.
