ALTERNATIVE CONTROL are Rastko Palikuca and Goran Toprek, born respectively in '80 and '84 in the capital of Serbia, Belgrade.

In 2006 the Serbs launched their first full album dubbed 'Alt + Ctrl', a joint release by Vision Quest Japan and Proton Records Brasil. At that time, their fresh uplifting brand of morning full on, soon catapulted them to the forefront of the psychedelic scene. Global performances were the logical consequence.Over the years, the guys played several legendary 'The Gathering' festivals in Japan, had multiple major Brasil tours, spent months playing in Mexico and have covered almost every European country and festival.

For the second longplayer Rastko and Toca re-invented the Alternative Control sound, kept their identity, but also explored new and exciting digital boundaries. With a broad range of bpms and styles, their aim was to please the general electronic music lover, and stimulate his senses in ways previously unthinkable.
