Berliner Stefan Betke's deceptively simple layering of deep bass, ghostly synth echoes and the crackle of a malfunctioning Waldorf Pole filter fused postmodern digital "glitch" music with analog music tradition, brilliantly channeling the form and texture of Jamaican dub into abstract ambient music.

Bus, driven by Berliners Daniel Meteo and Tom Thiel, skirt the borderline between dub and hiphop, handing the board mike to Glaswegian MC Soom-T. En route, Dabrye from Ann Arbor/Detroit short-circuits the electrified fence.
