Described by The New York Times as 'the best synth band in the world', seven-time Grammy nominees Tangerine Dream are a German electronic music group founded in 1967 by Edgar Froese. They have released more than one hundred albums with their early "Pink Years" albums having a pivotal role in the development of Krautrock.
Their "Virgin Years" albums helped define what became known as the Berlin School of electronic music. These and later albums were influential in the development of electronic dance music.
Although the group released numerous studio and live recordings, a substantial number of their fans were introduced to Tangerine Dream by their film soundtracks, which include Sorcerer, Thief, Risky Business, The Keep, Firestarter, Legend, Near Dark, Shy People and Miracle Mile. They most recently composed the original score for the video game Grand Theft Auto V.
The band's influence can be felt in ambient artists such as The Future Sound of London and Global Communication, as well as rock, pop, and dance artists such as Radiohead, M83, DJ Shadow, Cut Copy and Kasabian.
The band also clearly influenced 1990s and 2000s Trance music, where lush soundscapes and synth pads are used along with repetitive synth sequences.
