TAS Rated 4/5 Music, 4/5 Sonics in the October 2022 Issue of The Absolute Sound!
The Kraftwerk 'Remixes' compilation is released on triple, heavyweight black vinyl LP.
The compilation showcases Kraftwerk's immense influence on club & DJ culture, techno and all forms of electronic dance music. Featuring 19 official remixes, it collates Kraftwerk's own remixes alongside contributions from some of the world's biggest DJs and producers, including François Kervorkian, William Orbit, Étienne de Crécy, Orbital, Underground Resistance, DJ Rolando and Hot Chip. The remixes are taken from various Kraftwerk 12" singles, CD singles and digital releases from 1991-2021.
The album also plays host to Kraftwerk's very latest Kling Klang studio output with "Non Stop," and remixes of "Home Computer" and "Tour De France (Etape 2)." "Non Stop" actually began life as a sound bite recorded for MTV in the 1980s, but in 2020, Kraftwerk took the original 30-second sound clip and transformed it into a full 8-minute odyssey as it appears here.
What band can still command our interest when their setlists have barely changed uring their last few tours and virtually no new music has been released in the last two decades? Well, Kraftwerk for one, and these electronic music pioneers have had such a huge impact on music for over 50-plus years that by now the issue of 'releveance' seems like a moot point... plunge into the opening cut, 'Non Stop,' the one (almost) all-new track on the album, and start grooving to the apocalypse.
