RISIKO Issue 2


Dear Readers, would you support RISIKO Issue 2 "KRAUTIE"? RISIKO is an independent magazine that promotes contemporary German underground and alternative music. They launched a crowdfunding campaign for their upcoming second issue featuring krautrock on 10th August - 9th September.

Krautrock is an experimental genre of music that emerged from West Germany in the late 60s and 70s. It’s often regarded as music from the “olden days” and appears in rigid academic books. However, Risiko wants to approach it more casually, through other genres and a younger audience. With that in mind the “KRAUTIE” artists were selected - featuring their favourite things and personal stories, aiming to unravel krautrock through a slightly different perspective. The subtopic is “COMMUNICATION”, a communication between fellow artists, artists x readers and RISIKO x readers.

This special number from RISIKO is made to be enjoyed by those already familiar with krautrock as well as those who have never heard about it before.

It becomes modern by itself. - Claudia Skoda

I'm very grateful to have the opportunity to be part of the second issue of RISIKO. It's amazing how thorough and well-informed the writer was when asking about my music career. - Harald Grosskopf

As a person who's been inspired by krautrock ever since I first heard CAN's Oh Yeah when I was a teenager, I'm very happy to be involved with the KRAUTIE issue. Thank you, RISIKO magazine. - Kotsuguy (Kikagaku Moyo)

It's great that there are underground publications that show there's more to music than major labels releasing pop. RISIKO is based on a love for music, not for money. I'll always support projects like this. Good luck! - Michael Rother

We love and support RISIKO and want to show this by actively participating! - Milzbrandt

New models . New modes . The big reset . RISIKO magazine is part of the solution , not the problem. You don't need a Pitchfork to make hay .... - Sonic Boom
