Thanks to the outstanding work of the Hamburg film production company 'cut4u' and the sound engineer Ulrich Holst ('wachtmann-musikproduktion'), the band's new release is a high-quality live recording of their current set, with numerous classic drum pieces and many of their own compositions. Embedded in an incredible bank of sparkling drums, cymbals, bells, marimbas and vibraphones, gongs and Japanese barrel drums, the Hamburg band present a show that sparkles with passion and dynamism, crossing over from classical music to new music, rock, jazz and drum'n'bass with effortless ease.
