Album Art: Trans Europe Express

Theo Aytchan Williams, Oakland-born artistic director of SambaFunk!, has a deep relationship with drumming and dance. So it makes sense that he'd bring us a classic from Kraftwerk, a German band that formed in the 70's and revolutionized music with their "robot-pop" style and technological innovations. If you listen to music, you've probably heard one of their songs being sampled.

For today's addition to My Mixtape, check out "Trans Europe Express" to hear why King Theo thinks this song is so important.
