a Tangerine Dream of Kraftwerk

call their collective pool of work what you will, electronica, experimental, atmospheric, ambient, yada, yada. in the end, both Tangerine Dream and Kraftwerk created revolutionary music. Personally, Tangerine Dream inspired me in the 80’s when none of my “hip hop” friends cared to listen. On the other hand, Kraftwerk was being sampled in some of the hottest Hip Hop and New Wave releases — clearly Karftwerk’s music crossed over and became more recognizable. Luckily, I don’t need to choose which is more talented. Respectfully, I recognize that Kraftwerk will go down in history as the godfather of Electronic music. They did after all, introduce computer-speech software to the music industry long before T-Pain.
