Plazmatikon is one of the popular Polish alternative groups which have paid homage to klezmer music, uncompromisingly setting it in headlong collision with such genres as dub, fusion, ambient, Krautrock or drum'n'bass. The group’s musicians have turned to instruments from behind the Iron Curtain: a Vermona drum machine from the DDR and a Polish Unitra, as well as legendary Soviet “Elektronika” synthesisers and keyboard instruments. Their rendition of klezmer music dazzles through its freshness and intelligence. While not avoiding experimentation, they also make use of tradition, creatively transforming it. Their musical vision was been highly rated by Paul Brody and Frank London – musicians involved in John Zorn’s cult music label, Tzadik.

Paweł Moszyński – keyboards, synthesisers; Stanisław Koźlik – drum machine, effects, percussion instruments; Kacper Czechowski–Salzman – guitar; Maciej Szczepański – bass
