In honour of German electronic music pioneers Kraftwerk playing at T in the Park in 2013 Mikey has created a mix of the trans Europe Express album.
This is a reissue on vinyl, and the tracks have been rerecorded by Mikey with a faster record speed. Kraftwerk although pioneers, can be a bit slow today, but this mix takes the sound to another level. Not only has the record speed been changed, but the pitch has been adjusted.
This speedy Kraftwerk, still retains the esscence of the original and the extra high synth sounds mean it is on another planet.
This poses a challange in the beatmatching department, but The Blinders experienced ear, blocks out the high pitched shreiks, concentrates on the beats and does well beatmatching the tracks, & avoids really bad musical key clashes and manages to perform some fast transitions, as some tracks were short, meaning there is little time to get bored.
Warning: Kraftwerk won't be playing as fast as this at T in the Park!
