The influence Namlook had on Klaus’s music in the middle of the nineties should not be taken lightly, because although Klaus dearly loved those early-analogue elements from his own music, they had become, to an extent, lost. It was Pete who fortified him to go back to the analogue charm of his early albums and it was Pete who supported him in the modification of his analogue instruments, leading finally to the epoch-making Schulze album from 1996 - “Are You Sequenced?” For Namlook, the curiosity of Klaus Schulze and their collaboration on a level playing field of mutual respect was inspiring: And so a legendary series of recordings was born. ‘Dark Side of the Moog’ grew more or less unplanned to a sprawling, stately-sized series of eleven volumes recorded between 1994 and 2008, only ending with the early, tragic death of Pete on in November 2012.
