Some tunes from the backstock

I often wonder why it is that the best records always sell the worst… at least the best records in my opinion… and this is true for both my own label releases as webshop items… so I went through my backstock and found some really excellent releases safely stored waiting for some people who recognise the quality of the music… below just a few examples of some treasures hidden in the Enfant Terrible webshop… and first here a few more tips for the adventurous listeners among you: His Divine Grace/De Grace split LP, Future Blondes LP, Smycken/Viking Jews split LP and Lowfish 7″…

Gooiland Elektro MKII

Gooiland_Elektro_logo_whiteAfter almost 20 records in about 2 years time it is time to change the concept and the looks of Gooiland Elektro a bit… three new releases show the new direction… first of all the records by FOQL, Monocorpse and FFFC are released in a small edition of 150 copies only… as original intended when the label was conceived. Next to that the records will from now on come in sleeves which are hand printed by myself…

What stays the same is the focus on new and unknown artists and projects and sounds which are not released by other labels… so the sounds, but also the looks, will stay recognizable as being typical Gooiland Elektro and Enfant Terrible…

FOQL, Monocorpse and FFFC all deliver an EP filled with techno related sounds but all three are different in their ways to treat this music tradition… FOQL brings in some (spi)ritual sounds and structures and touches of Coil, The Future Sound Of London and even maybe Kobosil. Monocorpse on the other hand delivers some pounding raw, primitive and occult dark techno which will appeal to fans of Ancient Methods. FFFC will make you trip away on synth tapestries placed on top of techno and EBM rhythms…

Previews of sounds and artwork are available here…

Full track previews are available here…

The records are expected at the end of June… but you can pre-order these now here…

Radio Resistencia with live Lend Me Your Underbelly

RR_logoThis sunday (17th of May 2015) is the next Radio Resistencia session at Kapitaal in Utrecht. Most of the time we have live acts from within The Netherlands… but this time it is even a musician from the city of Utrecht: Lend Me Your Underbelly. See here for a little piece I wrote about this lo-fi / psychedelic project recently.

Just last week Lend Me Your Underbelly presented his new, and second, album “Hover”. Just to get in the mood here is a video / track from this album…

The session starts at 15.00 hour and ends at 18.00 hour and entrance is free and drinks are cheap…

Baldruin

baldruin_miniTwo weeks ago at the Diamantener Oberhof concert I got the latest Baldruin release. Baldruin is the solo project by one of the musicians from Diamantener Oberhof. Until now several releases are out on tape and the first vinyl is also in production…

The latest release is the tape release Miniaturen on A Giant Fern. As the title might suggest this tape is filled with little pieces of music… the longest being just about two and a half minute and the shortest being just under forty five seconds…

These pieces are playful dreamy ambient music composed with electronics and all kinds of acoustic instruments… just like they are used in the Diamantener Oberhof context… only Baldruin does not have the folklore touch…

I could imagine these short little pieces of music would fit perfectly as soundtrack for film and theatre scenes for example… but on their own they are as enjoyable as well… and that is an understatement!
