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…

15Y

This year Enfant Terrible is running for 15 years… it is not that I want to put too much emphasis on this… the current state of things is what counts… but I have seen so many labels come and go these last 15 years… and I have been in contact with so many people… and only a few of those are still here… for various reasons… and it does not make a difference  to me if I speak to these people every day, once a week or once a year… next to the records I realised with all the different musicians and all the memories of concerts, parties and meetings… in the end those few people still here are for a very big part what counts… I am quiet sure you know who you are…

And… after 15 years ET is still based on the same idealistic principles as when I started and as I have given shape to it in the manifest and activities… so expect only one thing… that I will take this furthur…

Berlin

This week I am in Berlin again… on Thursday the 19th of April me and Andy Dufter and dj Alacidus from the ET / Radio Resistencia crew will spin some  records… live on stage you can catch Europ Europ (special mini set) and Soft As Snow…

When the doors open Andy Dufter will play some experimental music. In between the live acts I will spin some industrial tunes and after the live shows me and Alacidus will play dark beats for people to drink and dance to…

All of this will be at ACUD Macht Neu… starting at 20.00 hour.
