Koffie Leute

Koffie Leute in Utrecht (NL) is a place to drink quality coffee and tea… recently they opened a second space next to the former one… here they also sell vinyls from local labels and bands and serve you a nice lunch…

Tomorrow we will record the Radio Resistencia show there for the first time… this time only the four of us from the radio show crew spinning vinyls… maybe next time also with one or more live acts…

If you are around we will play music for you from 14:00 hour to 18:00 hour…

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…

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…

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…
