Kraftwerk's distinctive sound was revolutionary, and has had a lasting effect across many genres of modern music. According to The Observer, "no other band since the Beatles has given so much to pop culture" and a wide range of artists have been influenced by their music and image. 

Along with band member Florian Schneider, Flur developed the worlds first electric drum-pads-board for the electric quartet. Outside Kraftwerk, Flür set up the band ‘Yamo’ and co-produced with Andi Toma of Mouse on Mars the album ‘Time Pie’ which was released in 1976.
