Horizon – 16 October – live: Ian Martin + Neugeborene Nachtmusik + Bare Bones, Lay Low

On friday the 16th of October I play some tunes together with dj Down The Rabbit Hole at an event organised by him/Ordo Viatorum… which is also a new label starting soon… run by dj Down The Rabbit Hole and Neugeborene Nachtmusik…

Performing live that night are Neugeborene Nachtmusik… check his debut LP which was released earlier this year and Ian Martin… part of Kaval of course… but probably more famous for his elektro/psych electronic music… the third live act is Bare Bones, Lay Low… doing his weird and trippy (lo-fi) psychedelic stuff…

Expect a night filled with post-industrial, ambient and psychedelic electronic music…

We start at 19.30 at Club Solo, Kloosterlaan 138, Breda, NL

Petit Enfant series return: Sololust, Europ Europ and Staatseinde

Staatseinde_cvrIt has been has been four years since the last record was released in the Petit Enfant series… the 7 inch series with a focus on all things synth pop… from minimal synth sounds to coldwave and darkwave… and from synth punk to a bit more weird and edgy minimal electronics…

And… to celebrate the return of this series three records are released at the same time… all classic 7 inches on 45 rpm… all three with familiar names from the Enfant Terrible family: Sololust, Europ Europ and Staasteinde.

Sololust returns with a true future classic and instant dancefloor favorite for the specialized dance nights out there… and on the flip side a superb melancholy minimal tune… Europ Europ have never before sounded so rhythmic…but their typical (post)-industrial style is also there of course… resulting in two tracks of weird post-industrial disco… Staatseinde has seen some personnel changes… and only for the better in my opinion… on this record they present their new more electronic sound… Neue Holländische Welle version 2.0…

All artwork will be printed (Risograph and silk screen) at Kapitaal in Utrecht… so these records will be true collector pieces (again)…

Full track previews are available now on the ET sound cloud…

The records are expected at the end of October… and a release party is in the making… and next to that Sololust and Staatseinde will perform live at Radio Resistencia at Kapitaal on sunday 18th of October and Europ Europ on sunday 22nd of November…

Baldruin (again)

baldruin_klaueA little while ago I wrote a few words on the Baldruin tape release “Miniaturen”… a wonderful piece of ambient music which I still play a lot… a few days ago the new tape by Baldruin arrived… it is entitled “Klaue”…

While “Miniaturen” and most of the music by Baldruin is quite subtle “Klaue” opens with some rather distorted and noisy music… still short pieces of ambient sounds… and especially the A side of the tape is done in this way…

As said….  like on “Miniaturen” the songs/tracks are short pieces of music… and on the B side the music is less noisy and returns more to subtle electronic music and playful tracks dominating the listening experience… the style more typical for Baldruin…

But… do not get me wrong… the more noisy pieces are equally good and interesting as they show a different side of Baldruin…

And… another side of this project is evident on the also recently released split 3″ cd with Micromelancolié… on this cd Baldruin is present with three cover songs… all done in a truly original way… adventurous, playful and done with a funny twist… worthwhile to check out for sure!

Here is one piece from the “Klaue” release…
