Out now: 2 x new Vrystaete

It took me some time but the two new Vrystaete releases are ready and will be on there way to people and (web)shops from later this week onwards…

So both Lend Me Your Underbelly and Ô Paradis can be enjoyed during your Xmas dinner…

I always miscalculate the amount of time needed to complete the Vrystaete records… next to printing the artwork and the info sheet there is the numbering of the artwork and the applying of stamps on the record labels (4 on each record) and on the info sheet (1 on each info sheet)… then there is the assembling of it all… so well… if I would include my hours spend on this in the price of the records they would become too expensive to sell…

So… think about that when you have in your hands sooner or later… these records are quite priceless… 😉 And… I saw in Discogs lately that at least one is already a real collector piece but I am quite sure a few more will become that too shortly… most titles are sold out or low in stock at most places…

Out now: R A D K O, Bebe Fang, Monocorpse and The Untitled

Out now are the latest four releases on Enfant Terrible, Vrystaete and Gooiland Elektro.

On Gooiland Elektro Monocorpse and The Untitled have appeared. Monocorpse already with this third 12″ EP and The Untitled with his debut on Gooiland Elektro/Enfant Terrible. Of course The Untitled has released way more before on his own label and other labels… check out his harsh acid/techno music here…

Monocorpse delivers his finest (in my opinion) EP up till now… a strange mix of soundtrack and dance floor minded stuff… like always dark and moody… you can find all the infos and sound previews here… and check out a video for this record below…

R A D K O from Italo deliver their debut 7″ with two tracks which border new wave, cold wave, shoegaze and even indie music in some ways… there is a video below and all infos are to be found here…

On Vrystaete comes the Bebe Fang LP… a personal favourite of mine… a haunting mix of lo-fi, ambient, folklore, ritual and psychedelic music… something I would like to invite you to explore yourself… get a taste of it here…

M. for LYL Radio

Quite recently I did a special mix / recording for LYL Radio from France. This recording was broadcasted September 6th (2017)… and I posted the mix now also on my mixcloud page…

This dj set features released and unreleased music from my Vrystaete and Enfant Terrible labels… all rather soundscape and drone oriented and ambient kind of stuff… dreamscapes to sooth and scare you… you can start tripping by pushing play below…

Brannten Schnüre

The printing work for the Brannten Schnüre record in the Vrystaete series is nearing completion… but it is definitely more work as expected and the most labor-intensive record I ever did until now… I would not even start to calculate what this record would really cost if I would sell it for a reasonable price related to all the hours put in it…

BUT… it is absolute nice to see how great the result is… and that is the only thing that counts: how it turns out in the end…

Shipping of the private pre-orders and to shops will start next week… and you can also still order the record directly through me

Diamantener Oberhof digital release

People who follow my label know I am not doing digital releases… this not because I am against them or something… it is just that it is not my way of listening to music and because of that it is a waste of time to me to realise digital versions of Enfant Terrible releases…

Sometimes musicians want to do a digital release themselves and that is quite okay with me… so Diamantener Oberhof have put the album we did release on Vrystaete (2015) now online to listen to…

The funny thing is that the musicians put it online as a stream on Youtube… so you can listen the complete album while just sitting back… here is the stream… enjoy!

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…
