«Tinkoff» beer restaurants:



Hardly find any other name in German pop music as much a synonym for electronic lifestyle as Karl Bartos. Not only his work as a member of Kraftwerk, but also his co-operation with local and international artists show him as an icon of a worldwide movement in music. Now, the pioneer of electronic music is back to be heard and seen ≠ live.

As co-author of known Kraftwerk titles as «The Robots», «The Model», «Pocket Calculator» or «Tour de France», Karl Bartos set the foundation for the world-wide success of German Techno-Pop. Countless bands such as Depeche Mode, OMD, The Human League, but also the complete Techno-Dance movement never seize to stress the importance of Kraftwerk's influence on their creative work.

Bartos belongs to the rare German Pop-icons who enjoy the highest international recognition. His authenticity as one of the founders of a particular German genre makes him as hip as ever.

As a classically trained drummer and keyboarder, Bartos' influence is evident on the music of Kraftwerk. With the international success of German Dancemusic, the quality of electronic lifestyle from Germany (co-founded by Bartos) is confirmed until this day.

After having left Kraftwerk, his activities as author and producer lead him to world-wide successful co-operations with OMD (Andy McCluskey) and Electronic (Bernard Sumner / Johnny Marr), The Mobile Homes (Sweden), and Anthony Rother and Deine Lakaien from Germany, as well as records of his own project titled Electric Music.

A suprise-gig as electronic DJ in August 1999 at the Kickzone-Festival during the PopKomm in Cologne gained him excellent critics ≠ for Bartos the starting-signal for new live plans.

Bartos' live-set is composed of newly arranged solo-titles and some Kraftwerk songs digitally optimized for stage conditions. Visually Bartos will be supported by the work of Cologne video artist Karsten Binar who created video loops with futuristic symbols and icons, illustrating on 3 big TV screens.
