Seminal Electronica, Hip Hop building block, birth of Techno—"Trans Euro Express" has been correctly described as all these things. For the latest in MEU’s series of Danny Krivit-curated 45s, Kraftwerk's classic gets the extended edit treatment. Focusing on the iconic metal-on-metal rhythm track, Krivit provides two takes for maximum flexibility. Side A (Mr. K 7” Beats) is strictly minimal, with each cavernous scrape and clanging echo magnified as it drops into the mix. The flip side allows more of the singular keyboard melody to leak over the Spartan beat, teasing the tense synth pattern out in a suitably dramatic build-up. As usual, expect the high quality mastering and pressing this series has come to represent. You'll probably want two more copies of this one. Repressed for the first time on clear green vinyl for Record Store Day 2024.
