Roland partners up with MUTEK this year to present a special pre-Nocturne event featuring V-Topia and special guests FM Radio Gods, winners of the 2008 Roland Synth Contest. Prior to the concert, audiences will have an opportunity to interact with latest in Roland technology in a Synth interactive area. Those in attendance will also be eligible for Roland door prizes and a special draw for a LUCINA AX-09.

V-Topia is a duo consisting of David "Tweeky" Ahlund from Sweden (synthesizers) and Michael Schack from Belgium (V-Drums). Touring around the world as ambassadors for Roland musical instruments, they have developed a sound that can best be described as a fusion between electronica, hip-hop and metal.  Drummer, producer, and international Roland clinician from Antwerp, Belgium, Michael Schack tours with big international acts such as Ozark Henry, Milk Inc, and Kate Ryan. Meanwhile, singer, keyboard player, producer, and international Roland clinician from Stockholm, David Ahlund has created numerous sounds and music content for Roland synthesizers.

FM Radio Gods is Andrew Hamilton and Tao-Nhan Nguyen. Incorporating everything from minimal house to glitchy electro, it didn't take long for the Montreal duo to climb up Beatport’s Top 50 progressive house charts.  After a frenzy of releases on labels such as Tribal Vision and Plastik Park, the FM Radio Gods won first prize in the national 2008 Roland Synth Contest.  2010 sees the release of their first album in collaboration with UK legends Bomb The Bass, to be released on !K7 Records in June. Other artists involved in the project include Gui Boratto, Extrawelt and Martin Gore (Depeche Mode). FM is also set to release a series of EPs on Baroque, Plastic Park and Tribal Vision, with remixes by D-Nox & Beckers, Beckers & Hatfield and Brisker & Magitman.
