Various Artists – Reality As A Stage Set

I decided to do a digital  (yes, digital!) release to bring some nice tunes to peoples homes … So this free digital and downloadable compilation was curated for this specific moment, during which COVID-19 goes around the world…

The compilation is called “Reality As A Stage Set”… it has a catalogue number and all and you can find it here…

I selected some (but not including all!) of my personal favourite tracks taken from vinyl records I released in the last few years on my labels… Several of the artists on this compilation have a bandcamp page where you can get the complete release the track featured here is taken from. Please support these artists if you can…

If you look for the download go here…

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…

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…

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…
