BBC Radio 6 Music Celebrates: Dance Culture this April. So grab your glowsticks, your smiley face T-shirt and delve in to the world of rave with Dave Pearce, as he talks to Slipmatt.

Kraftwerk – The Men Who Invented Pop

Kraftwerk – The Men Who Invented Pop – 2012 02 02

BBC Radio 6 Music Celebrates Kraftwerk, the influential German band whose song The Model reached the top of the UK charts 30 years ago.

Kraftwerk are one of the reasons that music sounds like it does today. Pioneers, 20 years before their time, they invented much of what we recognise as the tools of electronic music. But quite apart from being inventors they were funky as hell and became the most sampled artists ever.

In a documentary first broadcast on Radio 1 in 2006, Franz Ferdinand’s Alex Kapranos explores why they are so much more than four German blokes who loved bicycles.
