It is no secret that Kraftwerk are house gods for me. I won’t bore y’all by citing their whole career, there are plenty of info on the web, but I will tell you why I think they are important and still highly relevant.
Ever since their inception as a band, in 1969, they have experimented with sounds, new and innovative ways to create sounds. They have also inspired other musicians through the years. Few bands have inspired others as much as Kraftwerk has, and still do.
I personally enjoy their “late” remixes a lot. They are taking something that already exists and turn it into something fresh and new. They constantly reinvent themselves and that is why I love their work so much. I especially recommend the 3D Catalogue to those of you who are new to Kraftwerk. This set is also an excellent exercise music, works great for running. The base and the beat is awesome. Headphones strongly recommended!
