To close down 2016 and step into 2017 I entered the world of Bandcamp. This will become the home for the  ongoing “Droomharmonium” and “Buiten Het Droomharmonium” stories and a place to drop unreleased music. To get things started you can download a new track, titled “GO’R 2”. If you like it and want to support, you can throw a buck in the hat. I hope you enjoy and all the best for 2017!

You can listen to “Droomharmonium”, as performed at the “Sola Gratia” event at the Jospeh Reylandtzaal in Bruges on November 11, 2016 by clicking below. Big thank you to the Alter Ego crew for organizing the evening, CHVE and Syndrome for the music, Silken Tofu for the sounds and vibes in between, Consouling Sound for handling the merch, Dehn Sora for the art and all the people who came by to sit down and listen and make this evening into a good one! This one is for the people who couldn’t attend. A tribute to silence and compassion.

Hellvete - Puik III
Today, exactly 10 years ago, on 5 Feb 2006, I played my first Hellvete solo show at the legendary Freaks End Future record shop in Antwerp, opening for No Blues Steen (rip), Dan Decalut, and Gart & Seekatze. The shop, ran by music guru Carlo Steegen, was at the time the centre of the Belgian and the world wide underground scene. A truely inspiring place who’s support for local and international underground acts was beyond! All hail to Carlo for supporting my early musical endeavors by offering me a place to play live and even releasing some of the earliest Hellvete stuff on his Audiobot label! Efforts like that is what keeps it going!

The recording of the show was made by Jelle Crama on a handheld cassette recorder and later released on his own “bootleg” label PUIK, describe by himself as “a little label i started to regularly release live shows and retarded situations + local bands. packaging is done way simpler and quicker than what i do for my DRAMA label. if theres only a number on the packaging, then its a bootleg from a show i went to, first tapes contain shows of can’t, fat worm of error, mouthus, hellvete… these bootlegs mainly are totaly raw unedited tapes with sometimes annoying sounds from people at, going to or leaving the show.”  Thanks to Jelle for archiving this years back!

And now it’s here for you to grab… if you’re interested… and want to go back into the future… where you discover that not much has changed but little has stayed the same…

Solar Devotion

November 5, 2014

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.

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

You can now grab the latest episode of the “Droomharmonium” saga from SoundCloud.
