Get ready to dance the Mussolini as Deutsch Amerikanische Freundschaft make yet another return to the live scene. The pioneering electro-punk act consisting of Germans Gabriel Delgado-López and Robert Görl are often lumped into the same category as other erstwhile 80s pop-duos such as the Pet Shop Boys and Soft Cell. And although being chart toppers, López and Görl were far form pop icons. Taking a more chaotic and provocative route to success with a dark raw-synth sound, and cutting, proto-techno tracks, D.A.F. were far beyond conventionally. Now, a bit older, D.A.F. will be showing why they were once dubbed the “the godfathers of techno” by John Peel with something characteristically outlandish and heavy, as Dekmantel proudly announces the legends' performance for 2017.
