RIP Pete Namlook

Ambient and electronic music producer, composer and founder of the German record label, FAX +49-69/450464 has passed away at the age of 52.  Below you'll find a track he composed with Ludwig Rehberg (E.M.S.) and an interview.  He worked with a Moog modular, pictured, and of course plenty of other synths.  Update: In 2008 he ordered two custom "Blue Meanie" MacBeth M5Ns. New image of Pete Namlook below.
