Out now: 2 x new Vrystaete

It took me some time but the two new Vrystaete releases are ready and will be on there way to people and (web)shops from later this week onwards…

So both Lend Me Your Underbelly and Ô Paradis can be enjoyed during your Xmas dinner…

I always miscalculate the amount of time needed to complete the Vrystaete records… next to printing the artwork and the info sheet there is the numbering of the artwork and the applying of stamps on the record labels (4 on each record) and on the info sheet (1 on each info sheet)… then there is the assembling of it all… so well… if I would include my hours spend on this in the price of the records they would become too expensive to sell…

So… think about that when you have in your hands sooner or later… these records are quite priceless… 😉 And… I saw in Discogs lately that at least one is already a real collector piece but I am quite sure a few more will become that too shortly… most titles are sold out or low in stock at most places…

Vrystaete: Lend Me Your Underbelly & Ô Paradis

Coming next from Enfant Terrible are two new records on Vrystaete… two releases  I have been working on for a long time…

One of these releases will be by Lend Me Your Underbelly… this Dutch lo-fi ambient psychedelic drone musician recorded some pieces with a bulbul tarang… a string instrument also known as Indian Banjo… next to this he used an acoustic guitar, mandolin and subtle electronics to create some wonderful surrealistic dreamscapes…

Then there will be also a LP by Ô Paradis… the Barcelona based free-spirited folk pop musician is around for 20 years and released the same number of albums… almost all of the only available on CD format… Ô Paradis was on my wish list when I started Vrystaete… we tried to put together an album before in an earlier stage of Vrystaete… but now finally we decided to re-release a classic album which is both among the personal favourites of the musician and myself…

Watch out for more infos and sound previews on these two records soon…

Out now & offline soon…

The 3 expected releases by Ashburn County, Roberto Auser/Unhuman and Sturqen are out now and available from the ET webshop and the regular shops around the world… or they will arrive there shortly…

Also soon I will go offline for a summer break… you can still make an order in the webshop but I will only reply when I come back online… which is somewhere mid August…

Enjoy the music and enjoy your summer!

Berlin – June, September & October

Together with åtåmåtån I have planned 3 nights at Urban Spree in Berlin. These nights are called Dark Beats ~ Cold Waves and will focus on just that… There will always be one live act from Enfant Terrible and one live act from åtåmåtån… and both me and the other label boss will play some tunes…

Musically expect everything fitting the dark beats and cold waves theme and the focus of åtåmåtån and Enfant Terrible… so synth stuff, elektro, EBM, minimal, new wave, post-punk and more…

Consider these nights “work in progress”… we will see how they go and evolve… if we like how they turn out we will continue with these in the future…

Out now + events for March

Out now are 4 new releases… among these the delayed Silver Age People (a project by Roberto Auser and myself)… next to that a new Vrystaete release by Dutch ambient duo interbellum… this one is almost sold out here at ET HQ… only 10 copies left… but the regular (web)shops have copies in stock now…

Also out now in the second album by Neugeborene Nachtmusik… a superb piece of post-indsutrial/post-techno… and last but not leat there is the debut by Leroy Se Meurt… delivering fierce elektro-punk which will appeal to fans of old school EBM and minimal electronics…

You can find full tracks of all these releases here…

This month there are quite some events coming up… all in Holland and one in Belgium…

15 March there is a small release party for the interbellum LP… they will perform live at that occassion.

Next to that there is an Enfant Terrible weekender at the end of March with R A D K O, Leroy Se Meurt and Celldöd live and some dj sets… see here for all dates and locations…

And… as we speak I am working on the next releases… among these will be the first one in a new series / on a new sublabel…

And… and… To kill time here is a guest mix and a small interview I did for The Brvtalist…
