Beskrivelse

The album also features Kraftwerk’s latest Kling-Klang studio output “Non Stop” as well as remixes of “Home Computer” and “Tour De France (Etape 2).” “Non Stop” was originally a soundtrack recorded for MTV in the 1980s, but in 2020 Kraftwerk transformed the original 30-second sound clip into an 8-minute odyssey, as heard here.

Fans and collectors will be pleased to hear the inclusion of the William Orbit hardcore mix of “Radioactivity,” previously only available on the 1991 US 12″. Other notable additions include DJ Rolando’s rework of “Expo 2000”, Francois K’s & Étienne de Crécy’s remixes of “Aéro Dynamik”, Kraftwerk’s own remix of “The Robots” (“Robotnik”) and Hot Chip’s extended mix of “La Forme”. While all of the featured remixes are available on streaming services, physical copies have long been out of print, making this triple vinyl and double CD release a welcome addition to the Kraftwerk catalog and, more importantly, a must-have for electro DJs.

It’s significant that “Remixes” features some of the greatest DJs in the annals of club culture, as the connection between Kraftwerk and DJs has played an essential role in the band’s legacy. The foundation for this was laid in New York in 1977, when Kraftwerk founders Ralf Hütter and Florian Schneider, on a visit to an after-hours club, witnessed Afrika Bambaataa work “Trans Europe Express” and “Metal On Metal” on two turntables into a 20-minute extended mix that got Black America dancing. Then came ‘Planet Rock” and the rest is history….
