(Courtesy by Inferno Sound Diaries) Q: Let’s start with the usual question, how and when did this project saw the daylight? Who’s hiding behind REAKTON and what kind of sound did you want to accomplish? Adriano: I started in 2013 with the question, how would it sound if Kraftwerk continued to write music?

The main idea of the song is to describe foolishness that all of us can feel in our own human relations. It tells a story about feelings of realization of foolishness, disappointment and anger towards yourself. The lyrics of the “Budala” (which translate in English as “Fool”) mainly touch the feeling of confrontation with reality, disappointment, being angry at yourself. As for the sound, it is dynamic, melancholic and aggressive at the same time. Here’s […]
