Boytronic is a German music group that plays electropop. It was founded in 1983 in Hamburg, Germany. The original Boytronic released two synthpop albums: The Working Model (1983) and The Continental (1985). The record company, claiming rights to the band name, put together a completely different line-up in 1986. It was headed by Hayo Lewerentz (Hayo Panarinfo) (U96/Major Records) and continued to record under the Boytronic name until the mid-1990s. In 2002, Boytronic was revived by Wobker from the original group and Panarinfo from the second incarnation. They released the albums Autotunes, Maxi, and remastered editions of The Working Model (Reverse) and The Continental (Replace) with bonus tracks. The albums were released on Hayo Lewerentz label Major Records.
Wobker teamed up with his Beachhead bandmate Hans Johm (Antlers Mulm) and Michael Maria Ziffels for the Dependence (2006) album. On this album, the song “Forever” from The Continental album, sees its German version as “Für Immer”.
The band had three charting singles in Germany. In a 1986 NME interview, Curtis Mantronik said that he had adopted his pseudonym, and the name Mantronix, from an imported recording by this group.
Boytronic is back and in 2019 they released a new album “The Robot Treatment”, including original frontman Holger Wobker and James Knights.
