Organisation
Tone Float

Organisation were a band out of Germany who were a kind of prototype for Kraftwerk. The band members actually wanted this album to be under the Kraftwerk banner but were overruled. It would probably be better known if that were the case. Nevertheless the album was played in its entirety on German television despite being a UK only release. Confused? I think everyone was but this is a vital part of the story of the godfathers of electronic music.

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.

Kraftwerk
Autobahn

This is Kraftwerk’s fourth album, though it’s treated by the band as their year zero, and not entirely without justification. Though retaining “real” instruments like flute, piano, guitar and violin, this marks the start of Kraftwerk as a focused, conceptually defined, electronic entity. The side-long, Beach Boys-inspired title track and the mix of ambient soundscapes and melodic pieces on side two all share an airy, utopian feel. This is the digital remaster on vinyl.

Kraftwerk
The Man Machine

Yeah boy, this is the good stuff right here. You might know ‘The Man Machine’ as The One With ‘The Model’ on it, and it’s true that Kraftwerk’s seventh LP does contain some of their catchiest numbers (‘The Robots’ kicks off the record). However, this album also uses a sleeker pop sensibility to hide a plethora of futuristic ideas. A blueprint for so many genres to come, from synth-pop to techno to EBM.

Kraftwerk
Tour de France

Tour De France was a 2003 album by Kraftwerk made to celebrate the centenary of the bicycle race of the same name. It contains a brand new version of their 1983 single of the same name as well as a host of other compositions. The track was initially made due to the bands increasing interest in cycling prompted by Ralf Hutter. The new version and accompanying album form part of the last 'new' material heard from the band to date.

Kraftwerk
The Mix

As well as influencing almost every other form of electronic music, Kraftwerk found themselves pioneers of club culture. The Mix reworks serval of their most well known tunes for a club audience. Tracks like Home Computer and Trans Europe Express were painstakingly recreated by the band themselves helping the band become legends to a whole set of music listeners.

Kraftwerk
Techno Pop

I always knew this record as Electric Cafe but the whimsical and idiosyncratic bods at Kraftwerk HQ decided it was better known as Techno Pop so there you have it. Perhaps the alteration is due to the bad reputation the record had on release  - it lacked some of the playfulness and zest of earlier releases. But as with many albums time has been kinder and this understated album is worth its place in their stellar back catalogue.

Kraftwerk
Radio-Activity

Radio-Activity was Kraftwerk's fifth studio album originally released in 1975. It was the first of their albums to be purely electronic and was notable for it's more minimalist approach to their song craft. It is more drifty and avant-garde than earlier records and although it doesn't have the iconic status of their previous Autobahn, it was an important shift forward in their constantly developing electronic sound.
