Berlin School of Electroniс Music

Between 1979 and 1984 Tangerine Dream exhausted most of their ideas in this genre and began to record more accessible, short-form and increasingly New Age-like tracks for albums such as Exit, Le Parc and Underwater Sunlight. Jean-Michel Jarre delivered his ultimate sequencer statement with Magnetic Fields in 1981 and then began to record rock-oriented tracks that would please more fans in a concert setting. As the technology improved and MIDI came into the picture, musicians began to see synthesizers as a means to have the sounds of traditional instruments available at the touch of a button. It became apparent that the Berlin sound had arisen from work-arounds to technological limitations that were rapidly disappearing.

Ambient musician Steve Roach briefly experimented with the genre on his first albums.

But some newer artists began to deliberately record in the mode of Berlin School from a genuine affection and budding nostalgia for the genre. In 1988 Wavestar released their acclaimed CD Moonwind. The clean picked-bass and synthesizer trills of "Chase the Evening" distilled the Berlin sound to its essence.

Klaus Schulze still continues work in and around the genre, and while Tangerine Dream have moved on, they continue to send an occasional nod in that direction, such as the album Mota Atma from 2003.

Berlin School music has evolved into many modern interpretations of the original 1970's sound, with a particular hotspot in England. Major labels among the scene include Groove Unlimited (The Netherlands), Manikin Records (Germany) and Neu Harmony (England). Most modern styles still retain the same 'warm analogue' synth sound and progressive nature that is the basis of the genre.
