Surely, Kraftwerk isn't Krautrock!?


I can't get the embedding to work, but here's some CAN for you:

It depends how the term is defined, but their early stuff surely is. They went more pure electronic as they went on.

Manuel Gottsching - E2-E4 (Short Version - Rework) [6:18]

E2-E4 is an instrumental 59 min track recorded live and in one take by Manuel Gottsching in his Berliner studio the December 12, 1981 and released 3 years later in 1984. This influential album will have truly marked electronic music and repetitive/progressive composition.

Parisian disc-jockey and art director Marius, obsessed by this track since he discovered it, reworked the track by editing it in a shorter format trying to faithfully transpose the progressive side of the original piece, and added a bass (TB303), a beat and percussion instruments.

(Mixed and mastered at Sodasound studio in Paris in December 2014.)

I guess I have a narrower definition of the genre, but after looking around a bit I see them being mentioned in the context, so I stand corrected.

If I pick 5 albums by distinct artists it would be (from the top of my head):
Faust - Faust
Can - Future Days
Kraftwerk - Autobahn
Novalis - Sommerabend
Yatha Sidhra - A Meditation Mass

E2-E4 is one of my favorite albums. Listen also to Wolfgang Riechmann's album "Wunderbar". Anything similar is a good recommendation to me.

Great Krautrock/Minimal Techno hybrid

My father didn’t have the skill of a professional cameraman. The result? Avant-garde cinema.

Fontana Di Luna is a pleasant 7 minute Michael Rother track that contains the necessary hook(s). Don't expect too much from Rother's music, it's for the background.

This stuff blew my mind when I was younger and it's still great music.
Gottsching is a fantastic guitarist and I was really into the Cosmic Jokers stuff - one of my favourite albums is Walter Wegmuller - Tarot.

Actually I really loved the Harmonia/Cluster stuff too. Phallus Dei by Amon Duul is really rocking.

It goes a bit new agey in general for me in the 80s but a lot of the musicians are still going. Does anyone check new stuff from them?
Micheal Rother? Klaus Schulze? Last time I checked Faust were still releasing albums.

Berlin school ambience that stands the test of time from a guy that did several soundtracks if you like Tangerine Dream.
