Karl Bartos
15 Minutes of Fame

Karl Bartos, formerly a music-robot labouring in the legendary Kraftwerk, released his second solo album, Communication, in 2003: now it’s being reissued, and this is one of the singles taken from it. 15 Minutes Of Fame has an audible influence from Bartos’ old group, but with more of an electro-pop approach. 7” on Trocadero.

I'm The Message (Matthew Herbert Mix)

Karl Bartos, who literally used to be in Kraftwerk, included I’m The Message on his solo debut record Communication in 2003. Now the track receives a reworking by that highly creative producer Matthew Herbert, who adds a nice spin to Bartos’ synth-pop. 500 copies available of this 12” on Trocadero.

Karl Bartos
Life (2016)

Extending their reissue series with this lead single, Trocadero unveil a new vinyl 7” from Kraftwerk alumni Karl Bartos. Life is limited to 1000 copies and captures Bartos’ funky, electro-pop sound, a sound which shows his Kraftwerk writing skills, but also embraces a bright, bittersweet and very modern tone. Lovely pop electronica.

Karl Bartos
Communication

The Trocadero label repress Karl Bartos’ 2003 synth-pop gem Communication. Bartos was an integral member of Kraftwerk and this album was his solo debut. The initial release was poorly marketed, meaning these great synth driven songs went mostly unnoticed. Communication updates the Kraftwerk formula, with vocodered vocals and elaborate synth hooks.
