Boomkat Product Review:
*Ex-Kraftwerk member Karl Bartos returns with this limited edition 7" taster for his imminent album "Off The Record", comlete with an exclusive German language version on the b-side* "Welcome to one of the most emblematic buildings in the world - the Atomium" Karl Bartos, "Atomium" No other edifice in Europe symbolizes the rise and fall of atomic power quite as dramatically as the Atomium. This gigantic model of an iron crystal, erected for the 1958 World's Fair in Brussels, finds its musical voice on the first single lifted from the new Karl Bartos album "Off the Record". But what does iron crystal music sound like? The ex-Kraftwerk member combines variable metrics and intelligent rhythmicity with calculated noise and the elegant weightlessness of his melodies - neoclassicism meets avant-garde electronica."
