VA - Krautfunk: Groovy & Funky Krautrock Sounds From Germany 1972-1978




Well, here is a mixtape I made with groovy and funky krautrock and beyond, most of the bands on this tape where originally "rock" or progressive acts (some in the jazz-funk-fusion genre for sure), but many german acts threw the rock out of the window in the mid to late 70s and got a more synth-new wave-dreamy/kosmische-tinged kind of sound. This is not a fair overwiev of the 70s krautrock scene at all - it's just a mixtape - and there was no scene (what I know) called krautfunk either, I just collect the more funkier tracks into a tape. And I think the german funk was pretty groovy!

01. Embryo - New Ridin (1974)
02. Joy Unlimited - Soul Gravy Soul Beat (1972)
03. Atlantis - It's Getting Better (1973)
04. Sincerely P.T. - Rolling Machine (1973)
05. Niagara - S.U.B. (1972)
06. Messengers - Actions (1975)
07. Amon Duul 2 - Don't Turn Too Stone (1978)
08. Ex Ovo Pro - Don't Forget The Master (1976)
09. Randy Pie - Super Sid (1975)
10. Guru Guru & Kraan - Das Leopardenkästchen (1977)
11. 18 Karat Gold - Cool (1973)

13. Missus Beastly - Geisha (1974)
14. Curt Cress Clan - ''451 271'' (1975)
