Kraftwerk DJ Sessions with Greg Wilson

4–7 PM

Celebrating Kraftwerk’s extensive influence on electronic music, MoMA PS1 invites distinguished DJs and producers to play tribute sets in the installation Kraftwerk – Retrospective 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8. On four consecutive weekends, musicians explore different facets of the group’s pioneering sound that influenced musical styles as diverse as Electro-Funk, Disco, New Wave, Techno, and Hip-Hop.

Greg Wilson is regarded as one of the most important figures on the UK dance scene where he was instrumental in introducing new electronic, post-disco records coming out of New York in the early 1980s. The sound, he dubbed ‘Electro-Funk’, was in return profoundly influenced by the German electro-pioneers Kraftwerk.
