R.I.P. Pete Namlook

Just a quick tribute to German ambient music producer and owner of the FAX label, Peter Kuhlmann (aka Pete Namlook). In terms of how much ambient music this man recorded during his life, you simply cannot get more prolific than Namlook. He recorded around 130 albums, many of which were collaborations with folks like Richie Hawtin, Biosphere, Move D, and Atom Heart. He was most active in the '90s.

Namlook's FAX label championed countless releases since its conception in '92.

Spotify users, check out Namlook's excellent '93 album Dreamfish, which is collaboration with Mixmaster Morris:

This should go without saying, I'll be going on a FAX listening binge at the earliest opportunity.
