This page enables me to share some acoustic information. I've
tried to include some more unusual Kraftwerk related tracks. I hope you agree,
let me know what you think
A rare version of KRAFTWERKs Neon
This is an extract from Neon Lights. No not the
one you would have known and loved. Yes the differences are subtle but it
is different. It's from a Canadian copy of The Man Machine LP. All I
know about it for a fact is that it is most definitely a remix. It is on a
white label so I suspect that it is a pre-release version.
KRAFTWERK covers and tributes
1.5Mb. Tashcenrechner A version by the Denmark duo Dhiva. This extract was taken from their Tribute CD "Songs from the Powerplant".
Europe Endless / Neonlights
1.5Mb. Europe Endless / Neonlights By Makoto Inoue. These extracts was taken from the Tribute CD "The Radio Active Tribute to Kraftwerk".
The CD indicates the track as being "Europe Endless" but this lasts for about 1m 30s before turing into Neon Lights
1.4Mb. DMX Krews version of Showroom Dummies. This being a little different
in that it is in Japanese
Blue Savannah Song
1.6Mb. Erasures Blue Savannah Song (Der Deutsche Mix
I). I had always liked the 'normal' version of Blue Savannah so when I
discovered this track I was delighted. Loads of Kraftwerk samples are used
throughout this track. Released on the Mute label. Cat# LCD MUTE 109.
1.4Mb. Balanescu Quartet The Robots. An extract taken
from the LP Possessed. The group cover Kraftwerk tunes using stringed
Ralph and Florian going Hawaiian
1.6Mb. Ralph and Florian going Hawaiian This is an
excerpt from 'Ralph and Florian go Hawaiian' (sic) by Blaine Reininger. It was on his
LP 'Byzantium', IIRC
Tommy Vance Interview
481K. This is an extract from a 1981 Ralf Hutter interview by BBC Radio 1's Tommy Vance. In it Ralf tells what influenced him and gave him the ideas to go electronic.
Covers of KRAFTWERK tracks I have produced
over the years
5.7 Mb. This (full version) was produced using, as 'the hub', an
Amiga 1200. This was used for sequencing, sampling and generally having a good
time. Computer World was created using the music score I have of the KRAFTWERK
track of the same name., so it's very similar to that original.
4.6 Mb. This (full version) is based on themes from
Metropolis. I can't really say that it's a cover in the same way that Computer
World is as it is not similar enough. Though, of course, it would not have
existed without my hearing the original first.
4.1 Mb. This (full version) is based on themes from The
Model, a seemingly timeless classic.
