The Lab – What We Need – FLAC Download


All started as an experimental trio recording at THE LAB in Dortmund. Karlo, Sven and Marc started to jam together. Free improvisations, intuitive music, they played what wanted to be played. The recordings were edited and then sent to Steve, who added sounds and low notes. Mostly he used the same intuitive approach, just playing along to the playback and adding what the music demanded. Finally, we put all this together, stirred it around a little and had “What We Need”.
