Electro London Festival

Electro London is desperate to make this album a sort of statement, a branding exercise, if you will to collate a disparate suite of music into a collective movement: Synth Wave, as it calls it. That smacks of a money-making exercise so I’ll ignore that aspect but you cannot ignore the music upon the vinyl itself of course which comes from a swathe of countries including Argentina, France, Canada, Sweden, Ireland, Brazil and, of course, the UK. No Germany? Couldn’t they find at least one? The latter surprised me because this LP has been collated by the team behind the Electro London Festival, to be headlined in September of this year by ex-Kraftwerk motorik percussionist, Wolfgang Flür who is a German as German can be.
