Interesting that it's credited to Band Electronica feat. Midge Ure rather than Midge Ure's Band Electronica.

Good point: he's credited with all the work though.

If only somebody could explain why the song is called "DAS" Beat? Very strange ...

Not really: it started off as a collaboration with a number of people in Berlin, one of those people being Wolfgang Flur.

Also, a remixed version is available for pre-order on the US Apple Music store >>here<<

Thanks a lot for your reply. The weird thing is: "Das" is grammatically wrong, it should be "Der Beat". Maybe an artistic decision ... who knows.

Having learned Russian & French at school then I will bow to your greater knowledge but I think (can't recall for certain) that it was Flur that came up with the title.

The project I mentioned previously has now come to fruition and you can order Wolfgang's album, Magazine 1', including 'Das Beat' on CD & record here.

Other contributors included Claudia Brücken, Peter Hook, U96 - it is apparently quite decent.
