Re-opening of Kapitaal / closing dj set

This saturday the 11th of November Kapitaal is re-opening in Utrecht. After closing the former location and being temporary at another one they have found an amazing new space quite close to the city center and the central station…

I guess the printing workspace will be crowded soon again with people using the different printing techniques Kapitaal offers…

Also expected to be crowded will be the re-opening party… in the afternoon there is a program as part of the Le Mini Who? A free offshoot of the Le Guess Who? festival in Utrecht. In the evening there is the official re-opening party of Kapitaal… and the theme is girl music…

I will be doing the closing set of the night from about 01:00 hour onwards… I will keep the theme in mind and give the set a “female touch” but for sure I will put also some masculine tunes in it… and… I invited Roberto Auser to play back-to-back with me…

And the printing continues…

Yesterday I finished the screen printed sleeves for the upcoming Garçon Taupe release… Andy Dufter (Staatseinde) helped me out… due to the temporary set up at the new location of Kapitaal I got a bit dirty with ink all over the place and it was quite hard to print these sleeves… but we managed to get it done…

These sleeves for Gooiland Elektro take a lot of time to print… so much that I decided to change the design and the printing technique for this series from now one… so the LCN and Garçon Taupe releases are the last ones in this style… more on the new design concept later… it is finished but all in time…

 

Printing time again

Yesterday I started printing the sleeves of the upcoming releases… four sleeves have to be done i total and one is finished now… together with Roberto Auser I printed the LCN sleeve at the new place of Kapitaal in Utrecht… as the new print studio at this location is not set up yet we had to improvise a bit… but the sleeve came out well… so one down… three to go… two more screen printed sleeves and one I will do with a risograph machine… more news when there is…

Balint Brösel @ Radio Resistencia

Tomorrow, sunday the 28th of May, we will be for a second time at Snorfabriek in Utrecht to record a Radio Resistencia session… this as Kapitaal is still located there… Balint Brösel will perform live… a German duo located in Nijmegen… they play lo-fi tunes with both simple electronics and acoustic instruments… you could possibly classify this as naive-pop… below are two tracks to check out…

We start at 15.00 hour and end at 18.00 hour… I will spin some records as well as dj Alacidus… drinks are also available…

 

CRVR live at Radio Resistencia

Sunday the 30th of April there will be a Radio Resistencia recording session at Kapitaal in Utrecht.

Live performing will be CRVR (Crever) from The Netherlands… this is an elektro-industrial project with sounds ranging from rhythmic and noisy to more mellow and ambient like… here is a piece performed live at SOTU festival in Amsterdam last year…

Kapitaal is now located at Snorfabriek so you can find us there… we start at 15:00 hours and will end around 18:00 hours.

printing record sleeves – Unruhe compilation

Today I finished the sleeve for the second upcoming release: the “Unruhe” compilation on Gooiland Elektro… I printed this one together with the Kapitaal crazies and we had lots of fun in the process…

Kapitaal is temporarily at the Snor Fabriek in Utrecht… an old empty factory/workspace… which is quite cold… so cold the ink was not very liquid and cleaning the screen was also a thingy as there was no high pressure sprayer… but we managed… in the end…

Now one more big project awaits… the sleeve for the Brannten Schnüre album… more on this soon…
