Kraftwerk ‘Remixes’ Compilation Set For Vinyl, CD Release
German electronic pioneers Kraftwerk have announced that they will release their Remixes compilation on CD and vinyl through Parlophone Records on 25 March.
The compilation, which appeared on streaming services in December 2020, also features the band’s most recent Kling Klang studio output with the inclusion of Non Stop, a track that began life as a soundbite recorded for MTV in the 1980s, but in 2020, Kraftwerk took the original 30-second sound clip and then transformed it into a full eight-minute odyssey. The set also features newly updated mixes of Home Computer and Tour De France (Etape 2).
Remixes will be available on triple, heavyweight black vinyl LP, double CD and as a limited triple coloured vinyl edition (only available via the KlingKlang webstore and at the ‘Electro: From Kraftwerk To Techno Dusseldorf’ exhibition from 25 March.
Kraftwerk’ are set to take their multimedia 3-D show around the globe including a 24date North American tour and a co-headlining appearance with the Chemical Brothers at All Points East, in London’s Victoria Park, on Saturday August 20. Joining the headliners at the events are the likes of IDLES, Gorillaz, James Blake, Caroline Polachek, Michael Kiwanuka, Fleet Foxes and more.
All Points East took place over the August Bank Holiday weekend in 2021 after the coronavirus pandemic forced the cancellation of its 2020 event, and saw performances from the likes of Foals, Bombay Bicycle Club, Jamie xx, London Grammar, Kano, Jorja Smith and Caribou.
The multimedia ‘Electro – From Kraftwerk To Techno’ exhibition is currently hosting audiences in Kraftwerk’s native Dusseldorf and runs until May 22. Since its appearance in London at the Design Museum in 2019, the exhibition has now been expanded with Ralf Hütter contributing a selection of futuristic new images and graphic designs which perfectly illustrate that unique Kraftwerk vision.
