Masterklass #6: Cosmic Kraut Nuggets by Rick Shiver


Red Bull Elektropedia Masterklass is not just another random mixtape series. Every episode tells the story of a love affair between a DJ and a certain genre, era, label or any kind of subject matter interesting enough to be turned into a proper mixtape. We select the DJs and musicians based on their knowledge of (and enthusiasm for) music - giving them absolute freedom to show off their insights. Subscribe yourself to our Masterklasses today and get a PhD in music sciences tomorrow.

Next in line is Brussels based Rick Shiver (Libertine/Supersport). Titled "Cosmic Kraut Nuggets" he is not showcasing your typical late 60s—early 70s German experimental rock overview, but a personal selection of late 70s—early 80s kosmische musik favorites.
