“A fascinating melting pot....Energising, clever and breathtakingly diverse… Dizzyingly good” Irish World  

Ian Fletcher first worked alongside Mike as guitarist when they toured Germany with Toss the Feathers in 1994. Soon after Mike joined Ian on his Inner Space project, fusing Electronica, Dub, Techno and roots music from around the globe. Ian then delved deep into the world of Electronica and Techno, producing, DJing and doing live sets across Europe and Japan. 

“…a great blend of Celtic, Indian and Latin American melodies with electronic sounds..outstanding pioneers” Folk World
