Broadcast on the eve of the Kraftwerk tour stop in Chicago, Matt hosts a full career retrospective of their work. Agruably the most forward-thinking and influential pioneers in synthesized electro-pop music, the four composers working from Dusseldorf, Germany have had their music famously described as \”so stiff it’s funky.\” Kraftwerk created sonic blueprints and themes that paved the way for early Hip-Hop, House and Techno to follow in their robotic footsteps. After an intro of Detroit-y downtempo sounds, hear Kraftwerk’s decades of influence still every bit as relevant to modern electronic music today, fusing mechanized beats with emotional melodies and beautifully simple pop arrangements.
