Fantastic playlist! Thx. Whats the "song" with the narrative about coke around 20:00?

Ta. F.

This playlist is filled with musical gems. Iconic artists and bands like Alec Empire, Material, Arto Lindsay,... that span already some of the last decades in the history of music.

This is music education.
