• Live In Eivissa' is the world-wide debut release by Die Verboten, an audio-visual side-project that can best be described as ‘space music’, bringing together the musical and visual talents of Soulwax, Riton and Fergadelic.
• Die Verboten is a project that uses the studio as a compositional machine & a sound laboratory; a project that integrates sound & image.
• Recording: As the name suggests, 'Live In Eivissa' was recorded in live in Ibiza. "We had a mini-studio set up by the pool outside, with a mixing desk, synths, sequencers, guitars and drums," recalls Fergadelic of the Die Verboten recording sessions. "We work in a very angst-free way anyway and working in Ibiza we had the added dimension of recording outdoors, in the warm in a really beautiful environment with a whole bunch of people hanging out there. I'll never forget recording outside as the sun was setting. Most Balearic."
• Musical influences: "Various continental European music, like kraut, new beat, cosmic, N.D.W, Vangelis (especially his 'Earth' album!), Balearic, French stuff (from Heldon to Plastic Bertrand), etc. We love Neu!, Can, Kraftwerk, Ashra, Harmonia, Peter Baumann, Michael Bundt, Lilienthal, Achim Reichel, Harald Grosskopf, Klaus, the Tangerines, Amon Duul II, Popul Vuh, Faust, La Dusseldorf, Phantomband and pretty much anything on the Sky, Brain and Innovative Communication labels."
