Space Cassette DJ’s feat. Talos 4000
Talos 4000 is a peace enforcement machine created by Solsisum Systems to help establish order across the Disputed Worlds. The rogue unit achieved sentience through advanced meta-programming and was intercepted by the space-faring band of visionaries, Henge. Since that fortuitous encounter, the amicable automaton has been spreading messages of love through the application of planet Earth’s finest acid rave music. The affable android regularly brings a warm, fuzzy feeling to the crowds at Space Cassette and has been known to catalyse euphoria at terrestrial festivals such as Bluedot, Solfest and BeatHerder.
