AllMusic Review by

The massive influence of the German group Kraftwerk on bass music, electro and almost all of American dance music is basically a foregone conclusion, so this bass music tribute to Kraftwerk hardly comes as a surprise. Another surprise is how similar these versions are to the originals without sacrificing any of the tenets of great bass music. From the classics "Trans Europe Express" and "Numbers" -- both of which figure prominently in the genesis of electro/bass, Afrika Bambaataa's "Planet Rock" -- to others like "Pocket Calculator," "Computer World," "Autobahn" and "Robots," Basskraft is an intriguing collection.
