Early pioneers of the German New Wave music scene, Din A Testbild were formed in 1978 by Mark Eins and Gudrun Gut (former member of Einstürzende Neubauten, Mania D. and Malaria!). Din A Testbild played a significant role in defining the avant-garde music of Berlin. Their participation at the Festival Genialer Dilletanten in 1981 is legendary. Programm 3 is their third album. Mixed and auto-produced by Mark Eins with help of Ziggy Schöning, it was released on Klaus Schulze's record label Innovative Communication in 1983. Programm 3 represents a moment of distance from the "kraut" past of the band. Moving out from the legendary Schulze's studio into a home recording dimension with a basic equipment (Roland TR-808, Moog Source, EMS Synthi, tape loops), the sound of Din A Testbild was radically changing, getting closer to the experimental-electro and connecting the Neue Deutsche Welle ("German New Wave") with cosmic disco. It's well known in fact that Din A Testbild were a favorite in the playlists of the Italian DJ pioneers Daniele Baldelli and DJ Mozart, while nowadays you can find them in Matt Edwards/Radio Slave home listening mixes. Mastered by Rude 66. Edition of 500.
