fuzzkraut 3 39:30



This trio started out playing improvisational fuzzkraut-ish sessions in November 2022 after Imari Kokubo, Dirk Dresselhaus, and Derek Shirley had unavailingly planned to hook up with each other individually for a couple of years.

As each of them is involved in an extended variety of music (Vladislav Delay Quartet, die ANGEL, Schneider TM, faust, Piratezombiedog, Monno, The Still, Hi-Speed Dubbing, etc.), the premise is to boil down stylistic concepts to their essence by playing loud, time-transcending music without a safety net and giving some extra attention to communication in-between each other as well as to the individual subconsciousness.
krautfuzz is embossed by an angular-futuristic tension, spanning from fuzzed-out neo-psych-rock to abstract, heavily processed minimalism, and is open at the fringes.
fuzzkraut 3 was recorded as the first piece of the second session they've played together.

MWM rough #1

This is the first of two ongoing release series on MirrorWorldMusic that feature unedited rough mixes of live sessions performed and recorded at the studio ZONE in Berlin (MWM rough), as well as recordings of live concerts from around the world (MWM live).

The aim is to keep and release the music in its purest form, including all its possible imperfections, so as not to lose the power and spirit of the original performance through any kind of artificial post-production, which can be understood as a statement against fear and current trends of exaggerated self-optimization.

The MWM rough and MWM live series are available as downloads exclusively at

and later on as streaming on all preferred platforms as well as on occasional physical formats.

By purchasing at MWM, you are directly supporting all involved artists.
