Back to the Phuture Radio with Claudia Brücken

Sunday 8 May 2011

In the latest of his occasional series of 6 Mixes exploring synthesised music past and present, record label boss and electro enthusiast Mark Jones is joined by Propaganda front woman Claudia Brücken to discuss her life in music.

Claudia Brücken

Hailing from Dusseldorf in Germany, Propaganda were signed to Trevor Horn's ZTT label in 1984 by Paul Morley, whom Claudia would later marry. The band hit the charts the next year with their debut album A Secret Wish and, although the band split two years later, Claudia has carried on making music, both as part of a duo with OMD's Paul Humphries and on her own.

In this programme, Claudia shares her "synth-fluences" with Mark, including tunes from Kraftwerk, Patti Smith and La Dusseldorf, alongside contemporary electronica from Crystal Castles and James Blake.
