Printed TWINS

twins_printed_armstwins_printed_legsYesterday was quite a sad day… as for the last time I was at Kapitaal in Utrecht for printing some ET artwork… hopefully they will find a new place soon so our collaboration can continue…

What had to be done yesterday was the sleeve for the TWINS “Rather Not” record… the sleeve has a classic new wave sort of lay-out and features some great photography by Anouk van der Wegen. The sleeves are silkscreen printed.

This record comes in two editions… as in that the sleeve has been designed in two variations featuring two different photos… one proved harder to print as the other strange enough… but in the end both look great I think…

This record is open for pre-order now and ready for shipping in about 2-3 weeks from now…

 

Neurobit at Radio Resistencia

rr_logoThis thursday there is a new Radio Resistencia recording setting… this time as try-out at a new location: Vechtclub XL. Kapitaal is closing and hopefully will be moving into a new place soon… but after two years of excellent radio sessions it is over for Radio Resistencia at Kapitaal

Vechtclub XL is also located in Utrecht and a hotspot for the creative industry in the city… so we are happy to do this episode over there and maybe we will stay there a bit longer…

Anyway… Neurobit will perform live… and this will be a sort of delayed release party for the “Moira” album on Vrystaete… so expect excellent minimal music in the style of Philip Glass and Steve Reich… but all done with gameboys… below a little preview…

Printing time (again)

This weekend I was again at Kapitaal in Utrecht printing the artwork for the upcoming releases… I finished two of the three sleeves I need to do…

antlersmulm_cvr_uncutFirst I printed the Antlers Mulm 7 inch sleeve… this one was a three color / layer design for risograph… the funny thing with doing riso prints is that  all copies are different… as you print layer for layer and the paper feed is not very stable you can imagine little differences in each print… as in that the layers are never super thigh on top of each other… but that is all part of the charm… and the colours of course… they look so old fashioned… absolutely lovely! I printed on a yellowish bookstyle kind of paper… adding even more charm to the final result…

zarkoffikonal_cvr_printedThe other print I did this weekend was for the Zarkoff & Ikonal 12″ EP on Gooiland Elektro… this was the usual silkscreen printing job I do since several records in this series… so cardboard sleeves and double sided printed… which is quite a lot of work… but they look really good I think… rather industrial…

Next weekend I return to Kapitaal for the last time to print there… at least at the current location… they are currently looking for a new place and plan to re-open soon at a new location… but I will print the TWINS mini album artwork at the current place… this will be a silkscreen printed sleeve in two different editions… same style but with different photography… so 125 copies with one design and 125 copies with another design… I look forward to printing this one… very curious how these will turn out…

Neugeborene Nachtmusik live at Radio Resistencia

This Thursday the 22nd of September there is a new Radio Resistencia recording session at Kapitaal in Utrecht (NL)… this time straight from Berlin we have Neugeborene Nachtmusik performing live…

Followers of Enfant Terrible activities will know Neugeborene Nachtmusik of course… he became part of the family with his project Milligram Retreat and continued under his new alias ever since…

Music wise Neugeborene Nachtmusik is hard to define… his music features elements of elektro, (post) industrial, techno, krautrock and ambient … but all in te mix makes up for a sound of its own… most of the time sounding rather dark and (spi)ritual…

The sessions start at 20.00 hour and ends at 23.00 hour and features me  and dj Alacidus playing some tunes before and after the live set by Neugeborene Nachtmusik… entrance is free and beers are cheap…

Here is one the tracks from the album…

Out now: Roberto Auser, Utroid and Monocorpse

hoes_def_full_enfant26
It took some time… more time as expected… but this seems to be the normal way to go these days… Anyway… out now are the three awaited records by Roberto Auser, Utroid and Monocorpse…

Roberto Auser serves minimal electronics/elektro as it should sound… raw and analogue… Utroid spoils us with new beat and early techno influenced acid… and last but not least Monocorpse delivers some dark and ritual electronic music… you can find the second video from the Monocorpse EP here below…

All three records come in screen printed sleeves which are handprinted by me and Roberto Auser at Kapitaal in Utrecht.

You can order the records at the ET webshop or get them shortly from the usual suspects around the globe…

Utroid live at Radio Resistencia (21-07-2016)

Utroid will perform live at Radio Resistencia at Kapitaal in Utrecht (NL) this thursday (21-07-2016)… the Dutch (Utrecht based) elektro/techno producer will present his upcoming EP on Gooiland Elektro… expect dark beats and acidic sounds to celebrate summer… dj M. and dj Alacidus will finish the job with tunes before and after the live performance…

We start at 20.00 hour and quit at 23.00 hour… entrance is for free and drinks are served cold at the bar…

Here are two Utroid tracks from the upcoming record to get in the mood…
