The Mix (coloured vinyl)

The Mix (coloured vinyl)

The Mix is a career-spanning collection of legendary electro anthems and a classy acknowledgment of the two-way traffic between Kraftwerk and club culture.

Artist: Kraftwerk

Genre: Electronica

Label: Parlophone

Release date:


Kraftwerk's first fully digital album confirmed their clubland credentials and reworked 11 of their best-loved tunes for a new generation. Painstakingly reconstructed and sequenced in the band's Kling Klang studio, new versions of tracks like The Robots, Trans Europe Express and Home Computer now feature more funky rhythms and cleaned-up, liquid-crystal sounds. A stark warning about pollution at sellafield is added to the glistening overhaul of Radioactivity, sparking a war of words with British nuclear fuels!

About the artist

Kraftwerk's radical and prophetic approach to purely electronic pop music has been referenced by an extraordinary number of artists from the mid-'70s onward. The Düsseldorf pioneers' self-described "robot pop" -- hypnotically minimal and obliquely rhythmic, and presented since the late '70s as the work of automatons -- has resonated in virtually every development of contemporary pop since the late 20th century, including David Bowie's Berlin trilogy, synth pop, and Neue Deutsche Welle, as well as later U.S. developments such as electro, techno, and house. Kraftwerk's enduring influence, particularly through '70s albums such as the unlikely cross-continental hit Autobahn, Trans-Europe Express, and The Man-Machine, and 1981's Computer World, cannot be overstated. Although new material has been in short supply since the group's second decade of activity, they've continued to enhance their legacy with innovative live performances and several catalog projects.
