Narcotic Syntax – Reuter Soul (edit)
recorded live at Reuter's, Berlin
Yapacc – master gear, James Dean Brown – 808+fx, Achim Treu – guitar+fx


Early in 2004, James Dean Brown and Yapacc started to present their music on stage. Apart from duo live performances they alternatively offer solo live sets by Yapacc combined with vinyl DJ sets by JDB.

From December 2009 until late in 2012, Narcotic Syntax appeared occasionally as a trio, collaborating with guitarist Achim Treu.



On 17th June 2011, a one-off show in a quartet formation featuring chanteuse Robert Conroy stirred excitement among the crowd at Suicide Circus in Berlin. The band euphorized their audience with an "unstoppable forward momentum". Some people out there proclaimed they had been carried away by a "pyroclastic flow out of a white rabbit's dream floating eight miles high on electric liquid".



In the meantime, having entered their 5th project phase, James Dean Brown and Yapacc return to the stage as a duo again. Narcotic Syntax play exclusively hardware live sets based on MFB and Roland gear, occasionally joined by Pit Spector to convey the Narcopit Syntax trio experience.
