A SPECIAL audio visual Kraftwerk show will be performed in Lyme by ninja tune and solid steel legend DJ Food.

His show, on Friday, August 2, takes Kraftwerk's various eras, looks, and line ups and combines them into a 90 minute collage of electro and techno - a visual history of the groundbreaking electronic group.

Kraftwerk, a German band formed in Düsseldorf in 1970 by Ralf Hütter and Florian Schneider, are widely considered as innovators and pioneers of electronic music.

They were among the first successful acts to popularise the genre, with albums such as Autobahn (1974), Trans-Europe Express (1977), and The Man-Machine (1978)—often described as "robot pop".

From 1995’s ‘Recipe For Disaster’ onwards, DJ Food has mixed hundreds of hours for his celebrated compilations (Including Coldcut’s Journey’s By DJ mix). Now Listen! is one of his most famous records. Rescoring The Monkees’ cult classic film Head on turntables or inviting Paul Morley to narrate a history of cut and paste music on his ‘Raiding the 20th Century’ mix are just two examples of personal projects he created during the 2000s.

In tandem he has enjoyed a career as chief designer for pioneering record label Ninja Tune since the early 90s, running parallel with his music making. In 2010 he was responsible for the look and design of the Ninja Tune releases that celebrated 20 years of the label. Local Bridport DJ James Baker provides support.

*DJ Food - Kraftwerk: Klassics, Kovers & Kurious, Friday, August 2, 8pm. Call the box office for tickets.
