Of this work it has been recording “May 28, 2016 Detroit show.” It is a pattern of when you appeared in a major celebration “MOVEMENT ELECTRONIC MUSIC FESTIVAL” of electronic music. Currently KRAFTWERK is resuming its own tour, but this day was also a performance prior to it. First, let’s check in the concert schedule of 2016.

Or more, it is all of the concert dates that have been published in 2016. In this way, “MOVEMENT ELECTRONIC MUSIC FESTIVAL” starring, is why was the 2016 first concert. And such was the special performance “MOVEMENT ELECTRONIC MUSIC FESTIVAL”, tradition of Detroit City, which began in 2000 (the current name since 2006). Detailed history is omitted, but the city is techno flourishes, the period during which this festival is opened has been certified as “Detroit techno Week”, not stop ringing a 24-hour music every year. In other words, what is contained in this work is the performance in the large festival of once a year, which gave the Detroit whole city.
Such this work, the recording became great topic on the net. There is also the fact that in 2016 the first of the performance, but the maximum is the point quality that became a hot topic. Sound, ultra-clear, which made full use of the latest digital equipment. Vivid sound should be called so-called “like a sound board” is I jammed with plenty. In fact the quality is superb. 1 sound 1 sound is very beautiful synth, overwhelming enough to overwhelm even enthusiasm of the festival. And was “Heart Plaza” is to become the site, you open space for 40,000 people crowded, but may possibly was recorded toward the outdoor PA tower. As it is the taste of “reverberation zero” of outdoor unique, it sounds the musical tone of boned incredible that there are Taigu crowd to seize all.
If, what you, but keep in raving about up to this point, in fact, this work is not a “Best of 2016”. This week Verona performances live album “VERONA 2016 (Uxbridge 593)” that contains the (Italy) is a single tour the first day that began in July I will be released, is better in sound and recording songs for both of “VERONA 2016” It is greater than about 1/4 step. However, it is only a slight difference. Taste that will report a large festival memorable in the best quality, “like the sound board” is, it is difficult to place in anything. To enthusiastic person, to I want to hear both this film and “VERONA 2016”, for those who if not up there, I would like you to touch the easy “latest KRAFTWERK”. Gift release that I put the feelings.
2014 early two years from the Summer Sonic. Also to recall the excitement that, even to know the appearance of the latest KRAFTWERK also began to move this year, one of the best. This weekend, we will deliver to you your hand.

ネットで話題をさらった最新ライヴアルバムがギフト・リリース決定です。本作が録音されたのは「2016年5月28日デトロイト公演」。エレクトロ・ミュージックの一大祭典“MOVEMENT ELECTRONIC MUSIC FESTIVAL”に出演した際の模様です。現在KRAFTWERKは独自のツアーを再開していますが、この日はそれに先立つパフォーマンスでもありました。まずは、2016年のコンサート日程の中で確認してみましょう。

・5月28日:デトロイト 【本作】
・8月4日-7日:オスロ8公演[THE CATALOGUE 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8]
・10月7日-14日:ビルバオ8公演[THE CATALOGUE 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8]

以上が、2016年に公表されているコンサート日程の総てです。このように、“MOVEMENT ELECTRONIC MUSIC FESTIVAL”出演は、2016年最初のコンサートだったわけです。そんな特別パフォーマンスだった“MOVEMENT ELECTRONIC MUSIC FESTIVAL”とは、2000年から始まったデトロイト市の風物詩(現名称は2006年から)。詳しい歴史は省略しますが、同市はテクノが盛んで、このフェスが開かれる期間を「デトロイト・テクノ・ウィーク」として公認しており、毎年24時間音楽が鳴り止まない。つまり、本作に収められているのは、デトロイト全市を挙げた年に1度の大祭典の中でのパフォーマンスなのです。
と、ここまで褒めちぎっておいて何ですが、実は本作は“2016年のベスト”ではありません。今週は7月から始まった単独ツアー初日であるヴェローナ公演(イタリア)を収めたライヴアルバム『VERONA 2016(Uxbridge 593)』がリリースされるのですが、サウンド・収録曲共に『VERONA 2016』の方が1/4歩ほど上回っている。しかし、それは僅かな差でしかない。記念すべき大フェスティバルを「まるでサウンドボード」な極上クオリティでレポートしてくれる旨みは、何物にも代え難い。熱心な方には、本作と『VERONA 2016』を両方聴いて欲しいですし、もしそこまででない方にも、手軽に“最新KRAFTWERK”に触れていただきたい。その想いを込めたギフト・リリースです。
