Summer Is Almost Gone

gooiland_MKII_backIt seems summer is almost gone… but it also means I am back on track with all Enfant Terrible activities… and I am very happy to announce that the three delayed Gooiland Elektro records by FOQL, FFFC and Monocorpse are now ready… I will start shipping from monday 24th of August onwards…

The waiting has been worth it as the records look amazing and sound great in my opinion… it means a break with the previous Gooiland Elektro output but in someways it is a continuation too of course… it is for you to find out in what way and such…

You can order the record here…  or from various selected (web)shops soon…

Also I recorded a dj set of about one hour for the French internet radio station Radio S&SR… my set start at 1:01:11 (the first hour is by the resident dj of the radio show)… you can listen to it here… all kinds of old school and new school (post) industrial sounds… sorry for the jingles of the radio station interrupting the trip I prepared for you…

Enjoy the last days of summer!

 

 

 

FOQL – Swerve

Today… just when I was finishing some last stuff before my summer break FOQL sent me a video they did for “Swerve”… a track from the upcoming ‘Hypatia’ EP…  and this video is a good one… based on video material by somebody else it seems… coming from some sort of open source video art scene… edited by the musician behind FOQL to match the music… well here it is to kill the time until the vinyl will be there…

Printing time again

Gooiland_Elektro_logo_whiteEven though the three new Gooiland Elektro releases by FOQL, Monocorpse and FFFC are delayed it does not mean we are not working on them… so we have started to print the sleeves, and this printing job will be finished next week…

As announced the looks of the Gooiland series have been revised and the sleeves are now hand printed by silk screen printing by myself with the help of the printing chief of Kapitaal

Below a first impression of the front and the backside of the sleeves (click to enlarge)…

Patience is a virtue

FOQL_GOOILAND20_webI am sorry to announce that the FOQL, FFFC and Monocorpse Gooiland Elektro releases which were planned to be released at the end of June are delayed till after summer… I expect now to be able to ship at the end of August…

But as you know patience is a virtue and the waiting will be worthwhile for sure… I will be printing the sleeves in the next weeks and will give an (visual) update about that here… and for now you can still listen to the full track previews on the Enfant Terrible soundcloud

So enjoy your summer and see you on the other side!

Gooiland Elektro MKII

Gooiland_Elektro_logo_whiteAfter almost 20 records in about 2 years time it is time to change the concept and the looks of Gooiland Elektro a bit… three new releases show the new direction… first of all the records by FOQL, Monocorpse and FFFC are released in a small edition of 150 copies only… as original intended when the label was conceived. Next to that the records will from now on come in sleeves which are hand printed by myself…

What stays the same is the focus on new and unknown artists and projects and sounds which are not released by other labels… so the sounds, but also the looks, will stay recognizable as being typical Gooiland Elektro and Enfant Terrible…

FOQL, Monocorpse and FFFC all deliver an EP filled with techno related sounds but all three are different in their ways to treat this music tradition… FOQL brings in some (spi)ritual sounds and structures and touches of Coil, The Future Sound Of London and even maybe Kobosil. Monocorpse on the other hand delivers some pounding raw, primitive and occult dark techno which will appeal to fans of Ancient Methods. FFFC will make you trip away on synth tapestries placed on top of techno and EBM rhythms…

Previews of sounds and artwork are available here…

Full track previews are available here…

The records are expected at the end of June… but you can pre-order these now here…
