Influences: Roman Flügel

Ahead of his Field Day appearance, the electronic chameleon guides us through some of his most crucial influences.

DJ, live performer, producer, remixer, label owner and all-round musical chameleon, Roman Flügel's influence on the electronic scene since first starting out in the early '90s has been vast.

Fresh from remixing dark synth pop duo Lea Porcelain last week, Roman has kindly shared a wide-ranging influences playlist with us ahead of his highly anticipated set at Field Day on 11 June. From breakdancing soundtracks to pure rave hysteria, get stuck in.


Roman Flügel plays Saturday 11 June at Field Day 2016. Weekend and day tickets available right here.

 

Japan - Quiet Life

Synth Pop in its earliest form. I always loved the very beginning of the song when you hear the Arpeggiator in the back and the strings presenting the first theme. In general it’s a great example of the perfect match of synthesizers, electronic percussion and ‘classic’ band equipment. Listen to that little breakdown at 3:00, I guess back in 1980 it was almost a visionary outlook of what would happen with electronic music in the future.
