Awesome ! We had such a good time. Thank you Raster-Noton, thank you Frank and Grischa ! We have been really looking forward to do this show. Raster-Noton is known worldwide for their very unique music, they sent Frank Bretschneider and Grischa Lichtenberger to play 3 hours of music. Additionally, we had very informative interviews on this genre of electronic music. Check out the videos and recordings ! Hope you like it ! If so, make sure to go buy some of their music and visit their gigs. Thank you ! In between of the performances and over the interviews we had the experimental mix “Dataplex 27” from Nicron playing, you can find it here.
