Description
Simple, dissonant melodies, many dense rhythmic patterns and occasionally unusual sound design combined as »Pseudo-Pop« – oriented towards other German electronic music of its time, especially the style of the label Sky, but neither light nor »cosmic«. Freaky carnival of friendly machines.
