A thrilling return to the Techno-Pop sound that he helped to define with electronic music pioneers Kraftwerk between 1974ÃƒÂ†s ÃƒÂ¦AutobahnÃƒÂ† and 1986ÃƒÂ†s ÃƒÂ¦Electric CafÃƒÂšÃƒÂ†An all new electronic album, ÃƒÂ¦Magazine 1ÃƒÂ†, that has been crafted by Wolfgang FlÃ‚Â³r alongside some of the most famous names of synth-pop and electronic dance, past and present.Featuring Midge Ure (Ultravox), Peter Hook (New Order) and Claudia BrÃ‚Â³cken (Propaganda), alongside the legendary Techno DJÃƒÂ†s Juan Atkins and Carl Cox and Electro-Pop titans U96, plus appearances by celebrated alternative electronic artists and composers RamÃ‚Â¾n Amezcua (AKA Bostich), MAPS and Anushka, adding just a frisson of deft contemporary nuance to the proceedings!Wolfgang FlÃ‚Â³r is the only surviving member of that classic Kraftwerk line-up who is currently making and releasing new music! No-one currently making Techno-pop records has Wolfgang FlÃ‚Â³rÃƒÂ†s career longevity and revered stature and, perhaps, no-one has ever made electronic records with such a warm and radical lyrical humanism. Songs that musically draw on a readily identifiable retro-electro palate, but which lyrically speak to us of our times, of our shared ÃƒÂ¦here and nowÃƒÂ† with a campaigning humanism that reflects on the challenges, disorientations and uncertainties of this unprecedented time of change.
