E2-E4, released in 1984, is a solo recording by German musician and Ash Ra Tempel founder Manuel Göttsching. The album consists of one minimalistic, hour-long electronic track that Göttsching recorded in one take using a sequencer, with improvised keyboards, metallic percussion, and guitar playing. The album is named after the most popular opening chess move 1. e2-e4 (which is expressed in long algebraic notation).

E2-E4 has an elusive appeal, one that is mysterious even to its maker. In 1981 and ’82, Göttsching was partway through planning a new solo album-it was quite complicated, with different sections and laborious themes. He wasn’t sure what to do with this new music, which came so easily. By 1981, Göttsching had made many pieces at home on his own for many purposes, but this one was lightning in a bottle.

E2-E4, one of the few records Göttsching released under his own name, has earned its place as one of the most important, influential electronic records ever released. It's also the earliest album to set the tone for electronic dance music; simply put, it just sounds like the mainstream house produced during the next two decades.

Manuel Goettsching - E2-E4. Story behind the cult ambient album, the predecessor of Techno & House music. As it turned out later, Goettsching had spent several years getting ready to record his most important album in just one hour.

Groundbreaking early electronic track which had a massive influence on some of the pioneers of modern dance mucic... Derrick May said that he and his friends would listen to the whole LP over and over again for weeks, Juan Atkins said the same and it fit in with his early vision of Science fiction music from outer space, and clearly had an influence on his early Model 500 / Metroplex output. The whole LP lasts well over 40 minutes, and instead of individual tracks, the LP is a continuous track arranged into phases, with subtle changes in instrumentation whilst maintaining the same background rift and light beat. Sampled a million times since, most notably on "Sueno Latino". Very Inspiring and deep music.
