WOLFGANG FLÜR (EX-KRAFTWERK)

WOLFGANG FLÜR (EX-KRAFTWERK) - MUSIK SOLDAT

Wolfgang Flur is best known as the electro drummer of the German electronic band Kraftwerk between 1973 and 1986.

The album “Time Pie“ (EMI Electrola) was released in 1996 in co-production with Andi Toma of Mouse on Mars. Flur’s next release, a 12“ with remixes of “I Was A Robot“ (Holon), climbed to number six in the German Club Charts. “I Was A Robot“ is Flur’s sung autobiography and was especially produced as a giveaway of the German book in a parallel edition. The English edition was first published in 2000 called “I Was a Robot“ (Sanctuary), describing his view on the inner workings of Kraftwerk. The book was subsequently released in six different territories / translations and was in the Top Ten of best-selling music books in 2004 (The Independent) and 2010 in the ten best music histories (The Observer).

Since 2004 Flur has been DJ’ing world-wide in clubs and at festivals, playing tech house, industry and electro specialities of his own, of Kraftwerk and of international artists. Flur has co-operated with Bon Harris’ (Nitzer Ebb) Shadow Bureau project and lent his lyrics and voice for the track “Axis of Envy“. Flur also co-operated with Anni Hogan (former Marc Almond pianist) for the track “Golden Light“ (lyrics and vocals) as well as on “Fashion Machine“ (lyrics and voice) with Ramón Amezcua of Bostich / Mexico.

Wolfgang Flur’s current stage performances show videos and rare images from his Kraftwerk past shot to his present projects added with selected electro tunes for dancing. MUSIK SOLDAT (musicsoldier) is the title of Flur’s program. Wolfgang sees himself as a music presenter with historical electric background
