Florian Schneider (1947-2020)


”R.I.P. Florian Schneider. Outside of the Beatles, Kraftwerk is the most influential band ever.”
— Cadence Weapon

”Plenty of British synth musicians have suggested Kraftwerk’s arrival on British TV represented a life-changing eureka moment, but not everyone was enamoured with music so uncoupled from prevalent trends. Their 1975 UK tour was sparsely attended and attracted hostile reviews (“spineless, emotionless … keep the robots out of music,” blustered Melody Maker); the accompanying album, the gorgeously atmospheric Radio-Activity, flopped almost everywhere but France.” The Guardian

”Kraftwerk were pivotal central figures in Germany’s late ‘60s and ‘70s krautrock scene (despite often disowning the tag), but Schneider’s wider influence rivals the legends of rock’n’roll, Merseybeat and punk rock. Electronica, dance music, electro hip-hop and most contemporary pop all find their wellsprings in the kosmiche electronic experiments conducted by Schneider and his Kraftwerk partner Ralf Hütter at their stations in their secretive Kling Klang studio in Düsseldorf in the 1970s.” NME
