Blog: Revolutions per day

Revolutions per day (RPD instead of RPM) is basically a sort of small diary about things going on at the Enfant Terrible HQ… stuff I am working on for upcoming releases, mixtape I did, music I am listening too and inspires me and so on… stuff related one way or another to Enfant Terrible…

At the pressing plant: Leroy Se Meurt and Futuro de Hierro

At the pressing plant are the next two records in the Gooiland Elektro series. Be prepared for the follow up to the acclaimed debut EP by Paris based elektropunk duo Leroy Se Meurt. Next to that there will be an EP by Barcelona based and Màgia Roja collaborator Futuro de Hierro. What you can expect are broken beats, industrial noises and punkish Spanish vocals… harsh beats for the bored dance floor…

Also I am working on the next Vrystaete record(s)… but more on that soon…

Back on Intergalactic FM

As from today (Monday the 6th of January) I am back at Intergalactic FM with a new monthly radio show called: Elitepop. Always on the first Monday of the month (Black Monday) at 21.00 hour at the Cybernetic Broadcasting System (CBS) channel… One hour of music straight out of ET HQ…

What to expect? Well… basically what I played at the Radio Resistencia shows but maybe a bit more free-spirited… so anything from post-punk to post-industrial to post-everything… from beats to drones… from contemporary to pop… always with some darkness and moodiness and/or  weirdness and craziness in there… just what I am into at that moment… And no talking… just music!

So.. tune in & drop out… And… in case you missed out on the transmission I will post the shows afterwards on the ET Soundcloud

End of the year…

Most packages with the Lend Me Your Underbelly and Ô Paradis LP’s have been shipped… After Xmas I will ship the remaining… so all (web)shops have been supplied and private orders should have been delivered…

Preparations for the next two records are set in motion… these will be the second EP by Leroy Se Meurt and an EP by Futuro de Hierro (Magia Roja, Barcelona)… both will be released  in the Gooiland Elektro series… More on these around early 2020…

And… also something is cooking  for early January… more on this very soon!

Have a happy Xmas and nice end of the year celebration and see you on the other side…

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…
