    RAFTSIDE is the band of visual artist and composer Filip Markiewicz and drummer and producer Lars Neugebauer, fusing elements of songwriting, alternative pop, and electronic music to create an experimental playground between visual art and music. RAFTSIDE's upcoming EP will be released in 2024. A musical journey that includes the first single "Midnight Sun" that was unveiled in November 2023. Drawing inspiration from the iconic sounds of the 80s and 90s, the new tracks will pay a homage to electronic pop and alternative music. 

    For the upcoming live tour RAFTSIDE puts the musical live experience to another lever; the performance becomes a full-blown sensory spectacle. Immerse yourself in a one-of-a-kind audio-visual adventure with a live visual show. Picture Pop Art meeting Surrealism in a dazzling collision of creativity that unfolds at every RAFTSIDE concert, where nostalgia meets innovation and artificial intelligence in an explosion of sonic and visual brilliance. 

    After releasing several albums in the 2000s, german music magazine Intro described RAFTSIDE as "a mix of The Strokes and Kraftwerk"... Over the years RAFTSIDE has played numerous showcases and concerts with different musicians, sharing the Festival stages with The Streets, Idles, Daft Punk, Cat Power or Metronomy… By the end of 2021, Filip Markiewicz aka RAFTSIDE released his album and visual concept « Ultrasocial Pop » on Berlin's label Grzegorzki Records. Inspired by 70s Krautrock, 80s new wave and 90s breakbeat, the songs were recorded on analogue synthesizers in his home studio in Hamburg. The result is a concept album that echoes recent events.

    RAFTSIDE presented a first performative version of the « Ultrasocial Pop » project during the Rencontres Internationales Paris / Berlin at the Louvre Museum in February 2021. Markiewicz also directed and composed recently the soundtrack for his staging of « Euro Hamlet » at the Lausitz Festival in 2021 with N.U Unruh (Einstürzende Neubauten) and Lars Neugebauer. Filip Markiewicz is accompanied for the RAFTSIDE live acts by the drummer Lars Neugebauer.
