Solar Devotion

Solar Devotion

For this compilation we asked each artist to contemplate on the Sun, our closest star, greatest deity and life-giver. No matter how human civilization was changing, the Sun has always been and remains a major focus of attention, even if we don’t realize it. This compilation is an anthem to sunlight in all its forms, it’s meditation and a ritual at the same time. Gratitude for our existence in this world.

Together with my good friend Dachligt I made a brand new track called “Ligt De Dach” for the “Solar Devotion” compilation that just came out on the Russian ΠΑΝΘΕΟΝ label.

You can listen to the track on by clicking below or you can go the BandCamp page and get the CD-R for only $6. It also features brand new tracks by Bird People and Guenter Schlienz among others.

November Music

In November I’m playing a couple of solo shows in Germany, Holland and the land of Brussels. Super stoked to be opening up the Remote Hologram LP presentation by Razen in Brussels on Nov 23. The day before I’m playing an afternoon show in Utrecht.

But first we kick off with a show in Wiesbaden on Nov 8. Together with Least Carpet, we are opening the “Vor und hinter dem Spiegel Deiner Augen – Die postmoderne Psychedelik von Johannes Schebler” exhibition with works by Johannes Schelber. The day after I’m part of the closing event of the (h)ear XL II - Multimedia Sound Art Exhibition in Heerlen.

Droomharmonium XII

A new episode in the “Droomharmonium” saga… For you to grab…

“Dimly Lit” free download

September 29, 2014

The “Dimly Lit” tape by González & Steenkiste that came out on Fort Evil Fruit earlier this year is sold out from the label, but Fort Evil Fruit made it available as a “name your price” download on Bandcamp. So if you missed a physical copy and you want it to transfer it from your computer to tape, chip in and support Fort Evil Fruit. All profits go to the label so they can continue to do what they do best: Swamp you with tunes that make your head explode! Do it! You want it!

Some extra persuasion from The Wire: ‘Dimly Lit’ would easily merit release on CD or vinyl

Some nice words from The Wire on the “Dimly Lit” tape by Gonzalez & Steenkiste that came out earlier this year on Fort Evil Fruit.

Holiday Island III

Here is a 20 minute excerpt from the 4 hour set Simon Marius and I played last weekend in a bunker on the the Raversijde site in Ostend. Thanks to Johan for filming! Thanks to the people who came by and took the time to sit down! Thanks to Silken Tofu for inviting us to one of the coolest places where I ever had the chance of droning out!

Silken Tofu invited me to be part of the experimental program of the annual Atlantikwall Nocturne in Ostend on August 23. For this occasion Simon Marius (from the band MAAN) will join me to perform from 18pm until 22pm in one of the bunkers of the Atlantikwall Raversijde complex. Also playing are Joke Lanze (Sudden Infant) and 1000Schoen. More info can be found here. Hope to see you there!

Atlantikwall Nocturne 2014

WAS IST DAS? has a tradition of doing video reviews. Recently Ned, Mr. Was Ist Das, made one of the lastest Gonzalez & Steenkiste tape and a while ago he also did one on the Hellvete / Jake Blanchard split tape from last year. Check out both videos below.

Gonzo Circus

July 9, 2014

Last month Stijn Buyst from Gonzo Circus came by with 11 songs as a guide line for an interview. You can read the result in the magazine’s July/August edition. Apperently I ended up on the cover of the magzine. Super weird, but the ego is satisfied. Happy to be in the good company of Ian Nagoski and Daniel Bach who also feature in the magzine. The magzine comes with a compilation that has an exclusive Hellvete track onit, called “Good Ol” Ritchie”. Available now from newsagents and record stores in Belgium and Holland. Or order it online here.
