Production

The album was produced in Shedpop Studios.

Styling

The minimalism used in the previous albums starts to fade away in Neu Motorik. Influences such as Daft Punk, house music and modern pop dominate many of the tracks, some to the tune of a Motorik beat, hence the name 'Neu Motorik'. Of course, the influences of Kraftwerk and Tangerine Dream remain - the last track was named 'Cloudburst Landing' because it reminded Harwood of the Tangerine Dream song 'Cloudburst Flight'. After putting the song 'Rave 2' on YouTube, it became a small-time hit on the Isle of Arran.
