Andi Toma and Jan St. Werner – AKA Mouse on Mars – have been making electronic music together since 1993. That music has often been an idiosyncratic blend of everything from ambient, techno and dub, to krautrock, disco and jazz. We think this bio puts it best:
Mouse on Mars is one of the few electronic bands to stand the test of time. Constantly reinventing themselves, they have taken electronica to new heights with a unique blend of sound annihilation, fragmented melodies and an impassioned hatred of conformity. For nearly two deacades, Andi Toma and Jan St. Werner have sweated over burning consoles to create a new musical language, only to twist it again into thousands of myriad distortions.
In 2014 they released an album called 21 Again, celebrating 21 years of working together. It came out in three parts, with a total of 30 tracks and featuring 21 new collaborations with artists from Mark E. Smith to Modeselektor.
So far we don’t know too many details about what they’ll get up to on the weekend of 1 and 2 October, but word around these parts is that they will be big collaborators!
