Kraftwerk

Kraftwerk is a pioneering and a highly influential electronic music band from Düsseldorf, Germany. The signature Kraftwerk sound combines driving, repetitive rhythms with catchy melodies, mainly following a Western classical style of harmony, with a minimalistic and strictly electronic instrumentation. The group's simplified lyrics are at times sung through a vocoder or generated by computer-speech software. Kraftwerk were one of the first groups to popularize electronic music. In the early to late 1970s and the early 1980s, Kraftwerk's distinctive sound was revolutionary, and it has had a lasting effect across many genres of modern music.

Karl Bartos - Off the Record

Artist: Karl Bartos
P: 2012

Karl Bartos' new album is an audio-visual sensation! Lost for many years, some of his early music has been reconceived and re-contextualised in a thrilling modern setting. Here's the story: during Kraftwerk's heyday Karl Bartos wrote – off the record – a secret acoustic diary. Based on his musical jottings – rhythms, riffs, hooks, sounds, chords and melodies – this is what he has come up with today: twelve brand new, exciting, timeless songs.

A few years ago, Kraftwerk started their 3-D shows, playing primarily (but not exclusively) in various museums around the world, with some of those residencies having the great fortune of seeing the band’s entire catalog (starting with “Autobahn”) being played over consecutive nights. Now comes this release, featuring those live concerts.

Kraftwerk - Autobahn

Artist: Kraftwerk
P: 1974 / 1996
Though they'd recorded three previous albums, Kraftwerk's modern pop legacy starts with the sounds of a few footsteps and a slamming car door--the beginning of a 22-minute musically impressionistic excursion down Germany's famed superhighway. An unexpected hit on both sides of the Atlantic, Autobahn's "fahren, fahren, fahren" refrain echoes "Fun, Fun, Fun" by the Beach Boys (just one of Kraftwerk's unlikely influences), while the entire concept recalls Brian Wilson's frustrated attempts at creating what he called "a pocket symphony." The rhythmic synth pulse that carries the title track will be familiar to Kraftwerk admirers, while cofounder Florian Schneider's flute work and other more delicate melodic touches hearken back to the band's prog-rock foundations (as do the atmospheric "Kometenmelodie 1 & 2," "Mitternacht," and "Morgenspaziergang"). Kraftwerk's fascination with technology has been well documented, but the revelation of Autobahn is the playful human spirit behind the robots' masks.

Kraftwerk - Computer World

Artist: Kraftwerk
P: 1981
English Language Version. When Kraftwerk released Computer World on an unsuspecting public back in 1981, the thought of Electronic music and computers taking over seemed like a farce. Now, a quarter of a century later, Kraftwerk's musical vision has come true tenfold and many Electronic bands cite them as their main influence. This classic slice of Kraftwerk's musical tapestry is an astounding album filled with bleeps, blips, beats and a huge dose of melody that inspired thousands of musicians and fans to go forth and multiply (literally). Tracks like 'Computer Love', 'Computer World' and 'It's More Fun To Compute' have been sampled by artists from all genres, especially Rap and R&B. The hit single 'Pocket Calculator' may seem like ancient material, lyrically, but most of the world now operate their own iPods, Blackberries, cell phones, etc. so the meaning is not lost. Even the ominous 'Numbers' still sound slightly creepy after all these years. So, what have we learned from Kraftwerk? Everything.

Kraftwerk - Die Mensch-Maschine

Artist: Kraftwerk
P: 1978 / 1986
The Man Machine is in my humble opinion the most perfect Kraftwerk record. Its sound anticipates the Techno movement for almost a decade and was a major influence on the synth pop bands of the early 80's (remember Orchestral Manoeuvres, Human League, etc...). this album also still showed the genuine German romanticism related to the Machine world that thelater albums lacked.
The Model, Neon Lights, etc all clever synth songs that truly show the unquestionable contribution of Kraftwerk to modern music.

Kraftwerk - Electric Cafe (English Version)

Artist: Kraftwerk
P: 1986
Was only familiar with their material up to Computer World. Decided to try this one from 1986 and was very pleasantly surprised. There are a few nominal similarities to Computer World, but this is definetly a more advanced and finely crafted work. Aestetically the sound is wonderful, crystal-clear and still retaining that fat analog sound but using electronic sources (though I think on one track I detected some bass guitar, and maybe even guitar). The Karl Bartos - sung "Telephone Call" is reminiscent of Depeche Mode at it's best. There is much that looks to the future on this, including breakbeat and ambient electronica. Check it out if you like electronic experimental, dance etc. Not a dull moment on this, and a MUST-HAVE for Kraftwerk fans.

Kraftwerk - Expo 2000 (6 Track Remix)

Artist: Kraftwerk
P: 2000
These versions have more dynamics than the original versions.This single serves for the most part a platform for Underground Resistance lable, fans of minimal or even IDM may get the most enjoment out of this release, however the rest of us may find the majority of this single difficult and too challenging although it is a deserving companion to the expo2000 single. The real winner here is the Francois K. and Rob's club/dance rendering whilst Orbital provides us with the most accessible standard fair to the casual listener the remaining mixes besides the last track often seem to be missing texture, it would have great to hear more remixes from different remixers, this is far from being Kraftwerk's most accomplish material but it's nice hear something after a 13 year.

Kraftwerk - I was a Robot (2nd Edition)

Artist: Kraftwerk
P: 2003 / 2010
Kraftwerk - I Was A Robot is an insider's story of those turbulent and buoyant times. Wolfgang Flur, the band's drummer spearheaded the genre of synth-pop, creating the worlds first electronic drum machine, whose patent was almost stolen from under him by the bands founder members. When he later discovered that his contribution to their previous material was going unrecognised he found himself in the eye of a bitter whirlwind of acrimony and counter-allegation that culminated in the attempted suppression of this book's publication. Now fully vindicated in the courts, his true story of die Menschmaschine can at last be told.
