“Glasnost sounds like warm butter spreading on toast. Soft, yet crisp.” Blouse – Omar 9/4/2009
Aside from producing killer dance floor remixes, Glasnost is also a live, four piece, electro pop band. The band formed out of two electronic acts (Das Automatic & DJ Cuba Gooding Jr.) that realized there was something to be said for live rock show performances. By taking the elements of pop bands such a New Order, Duran Duran etc and combining it with the energy and sound of a live rock show a unique sound and experience was formed.
