Das Rad – our debut

DISCUS75CD

We formed Das Rad as a place where we could collectively compose driving motorik music and mix that up alongside some more developed arrangements without excluding some of the freer, textural and improvisatory material with which we began the group a couple of years ago.  We wanted this release to be tell an involving  story within a concise frame.  

Alongside the core guitar / sax / drums trio which was our starting point, all three of us use electronics as part of our setup, and this enabled us to work collectively to expand these pieces into the fully developed final sound you’re hearing now.

We think of this as a European record by European musicians, and we’ve reflected this within the song titles, our own small protest against the political insanity which coincides with the release of this work.  We think of this as a European record by European musicians, and we’ve reflected this within the song titles, our own small protest against the political insanity which coincides with the release of this work.
