NaamDirk Leyers & Nomad
Functielive act, groep
After years of exploring the depths of musical genres and the boundaries of blending, mixing and refining rhythm patterns and harmonies from around the globe, two Berliners expressed their hard earned musical freedom in a dogma :
The use of a Roland TR-808 analog drum machine in every single track.
They programmed the machine to lay polyrythms over drum and percussion tracks, fascinated -and sometimes puzzled- by it's own characteristically sudden swing and accent changes, and named it: "Africaine 808 " - their third and first female bandmember.
