Gabi Delgado from the German Duo DAF died aged 61 today. I guess Statto knows some of their songs. I was a toddler/young boy  when they were in their prime, nevertheless they were pioneers of electronic music. Here is one of my favs from them:

Thanks for the attention to this.
DAF are on one of the noise themed 1979 onwards anthologies in my own world library. 

Their music always had a good genderqueer sound and wide range of styles quality to its artisan approach. 

Can't say I ever or never knew the chap, but I can't identify anyway, in any way I wish his family and friends the luck.
