Detailed information:

Electronic Pop was the musical goal of the Berlin School musician Rolf Trostel on his third album, which was released in the same year as its predecessor „Two Faces“. „Der Prophet“ is the culmination of this phase of Trostel’s oeuvre, which was tightly coupled to the PPG Wave Computer.

 As on his previous releases, the sonic peculiarities and clanking sounds of wavetable synthesis are emphasized. Yet here they are obviously more interlinked with the rhythm computer, the Minimoogsolo synthesizer and the analog string synth. Additionally, Trostel spatially layered the sounds with different amounts of reverb, which gives the sound the necessary depth for electronic pop andespecially emphasizes dry effect sounds. Compared to the previous albums, simpler sequencerlines with less layering provide for a more airy sound.

The reason for this was the fact that Trostel had now replaced his PPG 350 Computer Sequencer and Roland CR-78 drum machine with the Roland TB-303 bass synth and step sequencer and theTR-808 drum machine. This at-the-time brand new equipment formed a dream team for electronic pop—the machines are now highly coveted and sought-after cult objects among musicians.

 “With this production, the rhythmic element is at the foreground, specifically the variable programming of drum computer.Der Prophet was my most commercial production,” explains Trostel.
