Finally…

Finally the IYv LP and the Teahouse Radio 2LP are ready… it took me quite some time… the pressing plant did deliver in time (!) but the finalising of the records was a thingy…

People familiar with the Vrystaete releases know that there is a lot of manual work involved from my side… that is why I am not a big fan of releasing two records in this series at the same time… but well… pressing plant situations leave me no choice basically… but this time it involved also a double LP… as the Teahouse Radio asked for a 2LP release…

Anyway… I am still finishing some last records with applying stamps but most is done so I can start preparing packages and shipping these out… and I am very grateful to all people who pre-ordered these… quite a lot of you did so… meaning the next challenge is trying to ship your records out as soon as possible… and also to the (web)shops as these two albums will also be available through all usual suspects as ever… so thanks to all for your support!

The next two records are at the pressing plant since some weeks… no Vrystaete this time but Gooiland Elektro stuff by the likes of RADKO (finally a full release) and a split 12″ by Roberto Auser and Melting Dogmas (a duo featuring 4Cantons)… I have some other plans and ideas which I will start working on as soon as I have shipped the IYv and Teahouse Radio records out to all of you and to all shops…

So I hope you can enjoy these sounds soon!

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…

Dark rave – 1 February

On Friday the 1st of February we will host a dark rave at Attic 61 (see the posts on the event there last September. This is the first party we play at this year… we had a short break… which was needed…

But… expect a night of harsh and dark beats like we always play… we being Alacidus and myself back 2 back… vinyl only of course…

Also Utroid and Roberto Auser will do live sets with more pounding beats and dark sounds…

The Attic 61 people have curated art pieces… and the location is again the old morgue of the former decomposed physics laboratorium in Amsterdam…

Upperberry

We recorded a guestmix for Berlin based Upperberry… this organisation is throwing parties and hosting a podcast series…

For this one we took it a little less loud and harsh as usually… but still this set is  filled with acid, dark techno and elektro… so you get served dark beats again…  as always we recorded this back 2 back without a fixed playlist… go the flow… this mix features amongst others Sololust, RTRA and Garçon Taupe… you can find the mix below or on the ET soundcloud page…
