Could This Be Kraftwerk?

Music International - could be...      20/02/12

 

We know that Kraftwerk could be beginning work on a new project after signing to Daniel Miller's Mute label. I mean why bother to sign if you werent?

Although the legendary source of clinical German electro-pop are notoriously meticulous when it comes to new music (ie: they take an age to finish anything). 

However, what appears to be this new(ish) tune was posted by youtube user 2011Klingklang. If it is them, perhaps its a taste of the new material. Unusually polyphonic in its arrangement, it still bears a number of very Kraftwerkian elements and is reminiscent of post 2003 Tour De France Soundtracks album. Though I'm not entirely convinced.

Comments have been disabled and views are not as high as one might expect for the genuine article. However, a visit to the official Kraftwerk.com website seems to tally with the graphical look and possibly elements of the sound beds that accompany various sections of the Flash enabled website.

We have put in an enquiry with our contacts at Mute and await further news.

What do you think, Krafwerk or not?

 

Thanks to JuicyAudio.com for the tip

yeh, does sound like someone playing around with that new Kraftwerk synth. I'll be shocked if this is the real deal.

Would like to see a link to the demo song, but I would be surprised if it is the 'werk.

i dont understand why they didnt just put out a proper page on youtube with the demos, advertising the synth? someone went to a fair amount of effort to make that video, too. The mind boggles.

No way that's Kraftwerk. It's too much of a pastiche.

Yep. confirmed its NOT Kraftwerk, but a good effort as passing off.

Far too may recycled sounds. Sounds like a Synth-Werk job to me as well.

Only a total bell-end would have thought that was the real deal.

It is very shit and bland so it could be Kraftwerk. Long live Detroit and all the freaks, like UR, Drexciya,Doppler etc Karl Bartos collapsed the mythof Krafwterk in his book, I was a Robot. Respect to the family Of Conny Plank, who Kraftwerk ripped off and didn't pay.
