Released on 10th May 1981, Computer World marked Kraftwerk’s last big record, and the last work from the group’s series of concept albums which began in 1974 with their fourth album Autobahn, quickly followed by Radio-Activity, Trans-Europe Express and The Man-Machine. All of them were recorded at their private studio Kling Klang, where they devised a mobile equipment system which they carried with them for the first time for the Computer World tour.

The dawn of a new decade saw a dazzling number of new styles come to life. The band led by Ralf Hütter, at the time still accompanied by the two other legends Florian Schneider and Karl Bartos, offered up a concept album based on the rise of computers in Western societies - all the tracks confronted the topic either directly or indirectly. Above all, with this concise (a full half hour of music!) and minimalist record, Kraftwerk opened doors for a whole generation of producers, introducing them to electro-funk with Numbers (which would inspire Afrika Bambaataa the following year for Planet Rock, marking the beginning of hip-hop) or laying the foundations of mental techno on Computer World and synthpop on Computer Love. Ten years after their debut, Kraftwerk prove that they are still several steps ahead of the rest. © Smaël Bouaici/Qobuz

Kraftwerk, 50 Years Ahead of Their Time

Kraftwerk, the most influential electro group in history, founded by Ralf Hütter and Florian Schneider, who died of cancer on May 6, 2020, have always been ahead of their time. Ahead of technology, composition and stage performance, the Germans proved to the public that robots were also capable of emotion and paved the way for techno, new wave and even hip-hop.

Nils Frahm, an Atypical Piano Master

Hailed by critics of classical music as well as amateurs of the electronic genre, Nils Frahm’s talent has brought harmony between the two worlds for the last ten years. Whether he plays on a church organ or a synthesiser fitted with effect pedals, the German pianist is always looking forward, and that’s what makes him so appealing.

Max Richter, Neo-classical Activist

With the release of his new album Exile, a reflection on exile with the Baltic Sea Orchestra, the iconoclast and prolific pioneer of the neo-classical movement confirms his status as one of the most ideologically committed artists out there. Melding classical and electronic music, physical and emotional worlds, he produces instrumental works of rare evocative power.
