Title: 8000 Feet Up
Label: Serialism Record
Format: Vinyl & Digital
Release: September 2011
Barcelona-born Rainer grew up in California, but it was his move to London in 2007 which led him to start collaborating with Cesare vs Disorder, playing out around town and beginning his production career with the popular “Neuralgia” under his belt. The obvious next step for him was to hitch his wagon onto the well-traveled route onto Berlin where he now presents his second release on Cesare’s Serialism Records.

The Farm - Rainer
Rainer was an amazing guitarist out of Tucson, brought up in Chicago, born in East Germany during the cold war. He had brain cancer about ten years back, his death and life largely unknown or recognized by the general public. I love this song, it allegedly "flowed" through Rainer; he would not take credit for writing it. A great talent gone.
Georgia on My Mind - Danny Gatton
More along the same lines of deceased unappreciated geniuses, the world's greatest unknown guitarist: Danny Gatton. This song really highlights his ability to combine his incredible country…
