I booked Alex AKA Ratsnake AKA Gesloten Cirkel in March 2007 to perform a liveset for a fairly unsuccessful series of 'underground electro' parties I was helping to organise in Melbourne.
He used to post his demos pretty regularly on the CBS forum, some of which later ended up on the Murder Capital releases ("Secret Area" for example)
Expecting a laptop, he instead turned up with a pentium tower and a CRT monitor.. respect I guess.
Of the 20 or so people in attendance (including the bar staff) it's fair to say no-one really "got it".
The point of this anecdote:
1. Gesloten Cirkel is not I-f.
2. dude was probably a bit ahead of his time in 2007 and the rest of the world finally caught up.

Definitely one of the most creative characters in the field, the music he makes is completely absurd to a certain point of extent where is it a stamp of its own. the jams have a hardware feel with a 303 & a reel 2 reel nudge, most of them are dirty to the good amount of level. I must say i thought this is another Legowelt moniker when Murder Capital appeared in 2009. he really thinks before he speaks and you can clearly see that, every release has been well worked on and they come out once or twice a year.
