That's nice, kind of reminds me of Orbital mixed with Autechre. ^

 

Music for those that like feelings of nostalgia. This is from 2002  but Boards of Canada always input feelings from nostalgia from their childhood (60's and 70's tv documentaries). It's where they got their name. Although Scottish, the brothers spent their early childhood in Canada. There, they would watch old documentaries presented by The Film Board of Canada. They would sample these old documentaries. One of the comments under this video is quite interesting. The link and differences.  between the current trend of Vaporwave and Boards of Canada

 

Quote

Is a little ironic, BoC's music is focused like crazy on nostalgia, Blank Banshee sampled this for a song of a music genre that also focused of nostalgia. Yet these are 2 sort of different types of nostalgia, BoC is focused on coming of age and nostalgia from places such as 60s, 70s and 80s with influence from old educational videos and documentaries, while vaporwave mostly focused on the 80s and 90s with a lot of Japanese, gaming and retrofutiristic influences, to put it in a way, BoC a lot of times focuses on outdoor nostalgic experiences while vaporwave mostly focuses on indoor nostalgic experiences. With BoC you think about that time you went in a family road trip across the country side when you were a kid, while with vaporwave you think about the time when you turned on your first video game console for the first time or when you used to watch 90s anime earlier in the morning on the TV before school

This is mix of "Expo 2000" a track Kraftwerk were commisioned to make for the World Expo 2000 in Germany. Their vocoded voice would say "Exoo 2000" at the bus stops at the fair. The track was then developed in the "Planet of Visions."

 

So this live version goes from Expo 2000 into Planet of Visions and then morphs into some of the alternate takes of it. It's a great live version. Its one of the closest things we have to a modern Kraftwerk track. 

 

 



 

Original jingle for the advertising. They definitely are masters of using vocoder. They make it unique. 

 

 

The original track: 

In the video, it's cool because you can actually see a 3D render of the Expo 2000 layout. 

It's not the only time they got paid to make a jingle. They made the MTV "Music Non Stop" jingle if anyone is old enough to remember that show on MTV Europe. They all ready had a song called Music Non Stop so I'm guessing the MTV show's name was inspired by that or at least they made the connection and managed to convince Kraftwerk to make it in to a jingle for them.

I'm such a sucker for 1990s jungle, it's one of my favourite genres. Every once in a while I'll hear a track from 92 or 93 and just feel completely blown away.

 

Here's one of my favourites, it's a little slower but it's got such great atmosphere.

Still trying to find this old Jungle advert on MTV. Remember they used to have these weird "save the evironment" adverts on MTV Europe? Well, I think it was this ad for the evironment but was this beautiful jungle track and I still remember the bass to this day. Must have been a kid but it stuck with me. 

 

Anyway so this actually happened on a kids TV show. Yikes. The track is banging though. 

 

EDIT: Found it!! :D After all these years! 

 

Man MTV was so good at showing weird and wonderful new art.

What about Tour de France Soundtracks? :p

 

Like probably a lot of people did, when I heard about Florian Schneider's passing, I listened to Kraftwerk the whole day. 3-D The Catalogue, specifically, because I hadn't listened to it as a whole in a while. It's hard to pin-point favourites, but one of my top picks, without a shadow of a doubt, would be Music Non Stop. I've always loved that "trilogy". It's also the perfect closing piece, both because it's a cool message (the concert stops, but our music never does), but also since Kraftwerk don't really have any solos in their songs, this is the only piece (so far as I can tell) that has them do solos.

My favourite part, the bass solo, starts at 4:30. The way the sound is manipulated (I'm guessing by adjusting the resonance on the filter) sounds just so amazing! What I love about the Minimum-Maximum version is that they each do their solo and walk off (that's what they do at their live shows still, if I remember correctly), after receiving much deserved applause, of course.

I could talk for hours about what I love about Kraftwerk's music, but I'll stop for now. :)

This is exactly what I love! It's actually so refreshing to hear someone else articulate one of my favourite things on one of my favourite performances. The weird thing was, that I hadn't been listening to them for a while and I had Music Non Stop live version in my signature for about a 2 weeks until about a week ago. And then this sad news.

 

I don't care, I'm posting it! 😛  And I love the teasing of the "Tech" and then eventually, we get the "Teeeechno!"

 

 

  Been lucky that they usually stop by my city every few years or so. I've seen them twice and missed them once (was a music festival didn't really know them back then and they played, I could have went. That would have been a lineup with Florian). But thankfully I've got to seem once in a big tent and the other completely outdoor which was a 3D concert. I don't care much for seeing the same act over and over but would love to see them once more. 

 

And if anyone doubts how "live" they are or if anyone is interest in music production/tech, check out this video. They are literally triggering the vocal samples live. I've time-stamped it a good example.

 True! But... there's that too but a recent track, re-worked so it's remixed, even with the other variations of Music Non Stop. :D

Hah, I'm in a similar situation, seen them twice (first time was in 2016, in Oslo, went on a weekend trip alone just to see them, couldn't stop smiling during the concert; 2nd time was in my neck of the woods in 2018 (and Depeche Mode two days later)), skipped a performance they gave at a festival (I don't care for (barely) sleeping in a tent for 3 days with drugged up teens running around). Technically I missed them when they were here in 2004 as well, but... I don't really count that.

And, yeah, the two times I saw them, the performances were pretty much the same, and I didn't have that same level of super hype the 2nd time as I did in Oslo, but it was just amazing nonetheless!

 

Well, if we're on the topic of live versions... It's such a little thing, but the altered bass sound in Etape 2, it's such a small thing, but I really, really love it, sounds super cool! If I remember correctly, it's what they used in a short (teaser?) video on their FB page.

My favourite song of theirs has always been The Man-Machine. Coincidentally, it also has my favourite chord progression (the same one Mad World has in the chorus, for example). But the Minimum-Maximum version. There's just something about the breakdown that is just so... even more amazing!

Haha, when I first watched Minimum-Maximum (at the young age of ~9, remember), the beginning of Radioactivity scared the sh*t out of me, I thought we're all gonna die. (the white noise bursts in the original album version in the beginning also scared me as a kid)

More live stuff. I can't get enough of the bouncy, happy Europe Endless, though I wish they had done the full length of Franz Schubert, because the original album version is absolutely spectacular, so peaceful and nice! Kind of like what Nannou, Nannou 2, Avril 14th, Jynweythek Ylow are to Aphex Twin, in a way, rather atypical to their usual style and 'industrial rhythms all around'.

Airwaves is another 3-D gem. The slow, drawn out intro with the 7-chords, sort of reminiscent of Interstellar's soundtrack, though not nearly as epic and dramatic. :D But what took me by surprise was the very fast main part of the song, when the bass kicks in and the drums. Granted, the original is fast as well, but I've never been toooo familiar with Radioactivity (not that I don't like it).

God, that must have been great week for you. I've seen Depeche Mode once and would love to see them again. That was back in 2010. Phenomenal concert.

I'm ashamed that I haven't listened to much of 3D remastered album. It just kind of missed that release and was going through a phase of not listening to them at all really when it released, but now I'll get it and dive in to it. :) And on the subject of little things man, and I love that you point out the little things.. you know when the snappy "blips/chucks" or snares come back in and they alternate the reverb on them as they come back. It sounds so much more ferocious.

 

Aside from these lovely live differences, I notice with later shows there is much more low-end filling the frequency spectrum than ever before which is much needed. Going back to the original albums and they seem a bit light and "tinny." Don't get me wrong, there's a charm that their work their albums don't sound 200% perfect like a modern pop song, but it's just nice now that they have a more full sound.

To be honest, listening to it now for the first time. It's great. For me, that's why I love Kraftwerk, it's their commitment to very melodic stuff. And that's when I love Aphex Twin most, when he touches on these melodic moments, perhaps when there are 2 melodies running simultaneously, it's just beautiful. And some recent Aphex Twin (well, not just lately but more lately), I find is more rooted in funk. I know he's a huge Kraftwerk fan and I wonder was it Kraftwerk funk inspires him. Buut yeah it's nice to hear this more ambient and chilled boppy side to Kraftwerk

 

I'll give the rest of it a listen this week. Been a while since I've spoke music like with someone who equally obsess over the same act as me, lol 😛 Needed to get that out of my system ha!

 

Since I'm here and we brought up Aphex Twin, this has to be my favourite piece by him lately.
