German keyboardist and producer Schnauss can easily be classified as new age, but we see nothing dirty about the term. Once seen a field for ponytailed men who play the pan flute, new age music has gone about a critical reversal. Chillwave helped; now even the Numero Group reissues relaxing hippie synth records alongside funky soul platters. Windham Hill and Vangelis can be called cool without punishment today. We're just talking about dreamy electronic music here, and Schnauss is one of the dreamiest. His cinematic latest, A Long Way to Fall, sails away on the easiest of hip-hop beats. Embrace the calming waves. Maybe lose the ponytail.
