Reissued 10/30/20, originally released 1991
Kraftwerk's first fully digital album confirmed their clubland credentials and reworked 11 of their best-loved tunes for a new generation. Painstakingly reconstructed and sequenced in the band's Kling Klang studio, new versions of tracks like The Robots, Trans Europe Express and Home Computer now feature more funky rhythms and cleaned-up, liquid-crystal sounds. A stark warning about pollution at sellafield is added to the glistening overhaul of Radioactivity, sparking a war of words with British nuclear fuels. but most of all, The Mix is a career-spanning collection of legendary electro anthems and a classy acknowledgment of the two-way traffic between Kraftwerk and club culture.
