About Komputer

Komputer is the project of two London-based synth-meisters: Simon Leonard and David Baker. The band have been writing, mixing and producing for 11 years now, and show no signs of slowing down, as the release of their new album "Synthetik" attests. Their sound is rigorously electronic and their tracks deal with such diverse subjects as: Russian cosmonauts, rubbish compactors and mobile phone ringtones. Musical antecedents and influences include Kraftwerk, Georgio Moroder, Syd Barrett and Brian Eno. Komputer has played and continues to play live gigs at festivals and clubs throughout the length and breadth of Europe; most recently in Turkey and Sweden. All the band's releases have been on Mute records, and it is their pleasure to have such excellent stable-mates as the likes of Motor, Depeche Mode, Laibach, Nitzer Ebb and Wire.

Komputer's debut album, “The World of Tomorrow" came out in 1998 and was a glorious assemblage of top-notch electro songs, conceptually a reaction against Oasis’ glorification of The Beatles, with Kraftwerk as heroes. Due to the band’s strict quality control, a further 2 albums worth of material never saw the light of day. Eventually their second album, "Market Led" was released in 2002. It was a glitchy, crazy slice of mittel-european electronica and owed its depths to the likes of Murcof and Pole.

"Synthetik", the third album, gradually evolved over a long period of time, the tracks being tried out in live sets then discarded or reworked in the studio. It finally matured into a return to the more traditional Electro sound of the first album, with the incorporation of a more experimental and contemporary electronica approach throwing the genre a few curves along the way. Enjoy.
