About Robert Görl

Robert Görl is a German drummer, electronic musician, and vocalist best known for being a co-founder of pioneering electro-punk/Neue Deutsche Welle act DAF. Initially formed as an industrial noise group, DAF eventually settled on the duo lineup of Görl and vocalist Gabi Delgado, and their stripped-down, sequencer-driven music and highly sexualized image helped lay the groundwork for EBM and industrial dance music. The duo reached their commercial peak with 1981's Alles Ist Gut and split a year later, with both members releasing solo albums and occasionally reuniting over the following decades. Görl resurfaced as a techno producer in the 1990s, issuing acid-tinged efforts like 1996's Watch the Great Copycat and collaborating with Pete Namlook and Karl O'Connor (Regis). After Delgado died in 2020, Görl revisited unused DAF material from the early '80s, and released Nur Noch Einer in 2021.
