Be prepared to go on a trip 30 years back in time to 1983. A time when the beats of the legendary Roland drum machines were shaping electronic music. A time when musicians, with their rock background, would ride the synth solos high, revolutionizing music and generating a wealth of new musical genres, smearing the borders and electrifying disco, hip hop and new wave.
This set recalls hazy sun rays setting on palm lined beaches whose light fades into sweaty summer nights. Bubblegum balloons float on nothing but pure synth-love which follows us all the way into our neon pink colored dreams.
