I brought your suggestion to the team thread but lately it's been difficult getting the head collaborator's attention to add new artists to the charts. Will let you know if/when it gets picked up; thanks for your submission!

So the PSIKE team decided not to pick this one up as they deemed it unfit for the subgenre; I'm usually a big-tent person, especially for the wonderful world of Prog Electronics, but I think I agree with them here. The music, while interesting, is more modern classical of an avant-garde stripe without any connection to rock, much less the German roots of the subgenre. You've put forth some great suggestions in the past, though, so keep them coming!
