The Righteous Rainbows of Togetherness are a live techno act that defies explanation. These two intergalactic wizards weave bass, beats and melodies that inspire carbon lifeforms to shake.

The underground duo have performed together for over a decade, including notable appearances at Bass Coast and Rifflandia.
