On July 3, Daikanyama Unit celebrates its sixth anniversary with German electronic music patriarchs Cluster, internationally known space-rockers Boris and minimal techno mainstay Fumiya Tanaka.

Contemporaries of Kraftwerk, Cluster (Hans-Joachim Roedelius and Dieter Moebius) were at the forefront of the German experimental scene of the 1970s. While their early recordings leaned toward the atonal and ambient, their work with Michael Rother on “Zuckerzeit” (1974) featured layers of warm keyboard and catchy rhythms without losing their avant-garde sensibilities. Cluster’s endeavors helped lay the groundwork for generations of electronic music from New Order to Hot Chip.
