Slow news…

Most of the time I forget to post any news here… this as most of it is posted at my Instagram page… but quiet a lot is happening… three new records are at the pressing plant: FOQL and 4Cantons (both Gooiland Elektro) and the  Ô Paradis & Nový Svět LP  (Vrystaete). Then there will be a special edition of the last 35 copies of the Hero Wouters LP. This in “Vrystaete style”…

After that I planned a LP by R A D K O (Enfant Terrible) and EP’s by Auva Duhr and Monocorpse (both Gooiland Elektro)… and also a Vrystaete record by Taro… and more Vrystaete releases are already imagined and planned…

Also today I started working on a new Gooiland Elektro compilation EP… more on that when the concept is ready and the artists confirmed…

As you might guess in these time… no parties and no concerts… there are plans for this but times need to be different to realise that in a responsible way…

So… hang in there… and furthur!

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…

At the pressing plant: Leroy Se Meurt and Futuro de Hierro

At the pressing plant are the next two records in the Gooiland Elektro series. Be prepared for the follow up to the acclaimed debut EP by Paris based elektropunk duo Leroy Se Meurt. Next to that there will be an EP by Barcelona based and Màgia Roja collaborator Futuro de Hierro. What you can expect are broken beats, industrial noises and punkish Spanish vocals… harsh beats for the bored dance floor…

Also I am working on the next Vrystaete record(s)… but more on that soon…

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…
