He's gone rogue again. Unbeknownst to most, space commander Ryote was biotronically fused with his ship during its creation. In a recent patrol to the uZukao-113 system, the vessel was exposed to contra-violet energy waves found only in the moon caves of Occuljiin, uZukao's only natural satellite. This mysterious evil has twisted both his ship AND his psyche. Traces of the cosmic wake are already being picked up by Kajunga's sensors. Be sure to listen to the full broadcast for all the harrowing details.

Late-night technician, DJ, music studio disciple, friend, record collector are ways in which those who know him closely would describe Andy Fargo. Recent years have added "modular synthesizer addict" and "electronics whiz" to his curriculum. He has performed beautiful sonic-scape live PA sets on the fringes of our collective minds. If you, like us, are in search of that thing which is the subject of KB Project's "Can You Feel It?", Andy Fargo is a facilitator of that.
