All the artists that are part of the Krautrock Classics concert have a direct connection and a clear influence in their sound that is owed to German bands and solo musicians from the Krautrock period. Many have expressed in interviews the impact artists like Harmonia, or La Dusseldorf have had on their records. Although all the bands that are participating do have their own styles, and in most cases, they are even considered as part of different genres or scenes, there's a "cosmic sound" that unites them and a common approach to music production and composition that shows their shared love for this music known as Krautrock.
