Printing time (again)

This weekend I was again at Kapitaal in Utrecht printing the artwork for the upcoming releases… I finished two of the three sleeves I need to do…

antlersmulm_cvr_uncutFirst I printed the Antlers Mulm 7 inch sleeve… this one was a three color / layer design for risograph… the funny thing with doing riso prints is that  all copies are different… as you print layer for layer and the paper feed is not very stable you can imagine little differences in each print… as in that the layers are never super thigh on top of each other… but that is all part of the charm… and the colours of course… they look so old fashioned… absolutely lovely! I printed on a yellowish bookstyle kind of paper… adding even more charm to the final result…

zarkoffikonal_cvr_printedThe other print I did this weekend was for the Zarkoff & Ikonal 12″ EP on Gooiland Elektro… this was the usual silkscreen printing job I do since several records in this series… so cardboard sleeves and double sided printed… which is quite a lot of work… but they look really good I think… rather industrial…

Next weekend I return to Kapitaal for the last time to print there… at least at the current location… they are currently looking for a new place and plan to re-open soon at a new location… but I will print the TWINS mini album artwork at the current place… this will be a silkscreen printed sleeve in two different editions… same style but with different photography… so 125 copies with one design and 125 copies with another design… I look forward to printing this one… very curious how these will turn out…

Out now: Roberto Auser, Utroid and Monocorpse

It took some time… more time as expected… but this seems to be the normal way to go these days… Anyway… out now are the three awaited records by Roberto Auser, Utroid and Monocorpse…

Roberto Auser serves minimal electronics/elektro as it should sound… raw and analogue… Utroid spoils us with new beat and early techno influenced acid… and last but not least Monocorpse delivers some dark and ritual electronic music… you can find the second video from the Monocorpse EP here below…

All three records come in screen printed sleeves which are handprinted by me and Roberto Auser at Kapitaal in Utrecht.

You can order the records at the ET webshop or get them shortly from the usual suspects around the globe…

Roberto Auser – Faceless Future EP

Somewhere early January Roberto Auser and I went by car to Rotterdam…during the way back he played me some demo’s he had been working on… afterwards he sent me all the tracks to listen to again… from my initial idea of doing a 7″ release it went to three 7″s to a 12″ EP… and the last one is now at the pressing plant…

This EP is entitled “Faceless Future” and contains 6 tracks with pure analogue old school minimal electronics… from rhythm based elektro tracks for the dancefloor to more experimental soundscapes…

The record pays tribute to pioneers of industrial music and early experimental elektro such as early Cabaret Voltaire and Front 242 but also to the more modern new wave of minimal electronics as re-invented by Le Syndicat Electronique…

“Faceless Future” is expected before summer and comes in a silk screened sleeve… of course printed by myself and Roberto Auser himself at Kapitaal in Utrecht… you can pre-order it here…

To kill the time until the release I uploaded a video of one track and a full track preview of another one… both are here below… enjoy!

Gooiland Elektro update

Gooiland_Elektro_BIG

Already announced is a new Monocorpse 12″ EP… see the video posted below… next to that there is another release coming upon Gooiland Elekro… one by Utroid… hailing from Utrecht, The Netherlands… known before as Funxiun and BS-1… playing harsh elektro and techno before… and still doing that but in a more minimal way…

The EP “The Movement” is features four New Beat and acid influenced pieces… from rough and harsh beats to trippy and spacey tracks… all excellent stuff for the dancefloor…  promised!

Below is one full track preview… the record is expected before summer…

Monocorpse – Cease To Exist 12″ EP

Expected before summer… I think about early/mid July is a new EP by Monocorpse on Gooiland Elektro… this Dutch project blends (post-)techno, ritual and industrial sounds into spine chilling soundtracks for occult nighttime sessions…

While the first EP “Ceremonie Caille” was thematically centred around voodoo… this new EP stays closer to home while taking its theme from The Family… and in that line the first video was edited… for the truly interested I do not need to explain this video footage and all… and for the non-informed it is a nice starting point to get into this record and the theme behind it…
