Siesta Submarina is one of the more interesting contemporary techno acts that have emerged from Norway. His live sets are techno in the truest sense; deep, evolving, mechanic and yet strangely human.

Accommodating an Octatrack or a Machinedrum/Monomachine (both MKI/MKII versions) unit, it offers the ultimate protection for Elektron gear. Bundled with the bag is the PL-1 protective cover.
