On June 22, a new slab of wax by Hellvete will see the light of day. This time it is a split 10″ with Luster, released by Morc Records and pressed on high quality vinyl, on an edition of 130.

This is what the label has to say about it:

“on one side, we have Hellvete – the belgian dronemaster that impressed us with an ongoing series of longform drones, mostly based on one instrument. here, the central role is reserved for the organ. should please everyone who is interested in monolithic soundsculptures. impressive, straightforward and mindcleaning.

the other side is reserved for the debut of Luster – a collective of musicians from ghent,, with cao Annelies Monseré and members of Edgar Wappenhalter, Joe Speeboat and Mote.On this ep, their track is a long version of the traditional ‘are you going to leave me’. expect a fuzzy, warm and doomy take on this classic.”

You can preview and/or order the record straight from Bandcamp.

To celebrate this release, Morc Records and Į.vorėn T.øręn joined forces to put on an evening on June 22 at “In De De Ruimte” in Ghent where Luster and myself will present this new release to the world. The great people of Pandelindio and Bird People are also invited to throw in some extra bliss! And for the occasion, “Danspassen Uit Mariakerke” will put on their dancing shoes to infuse my show with some extra movement. Siked! I’m up first, so be on time!

Summer is coming up, so it’s time to go outside again and celebrate all the good things in life with a bunch of music!

I’ll be teaming up Jürgen De Blonde and Lieven Martens Moana to provide a soundtrack for the Dreamachines of Thomas Betsens at the epic IN DREAMS event curated by Phillipe Cortens.

Second I’ll be presenting a new split 10″ together with Luster (a new six headed beast with Annelies Monseré and members of Joe Speedboat) at my favo Ghent venue “In De Ruimte“. Super happy that my good pall Bird People and the magnificent Argentina based drone maestros Pandelindio will also be present. Big thanks to Morc Tapes for making this happen and for releasing the 10″!

After that I’ll be heading to the Netherlands to play the Midzomerdrone festival where I’m happy to be sharing the bill with Broeder Dieleman and a bunch of other Dutch drone heads.The show will be held in an old meat-market in which a single sound reverberates for 8 seconds. Who needs effects…

A couple of days later Brahmen Raag will be opening for Common Eider, King Elder and Gabriel Saloman (ex-Yellow Swans) in Antwerp. And to top things off I’m super happy that KRAAK invited me to play a show in Berlin as part of a KRAAK curated evening in Ausland together with Lieven Martens Moana and Razen.

Hope to see you along the road!

Tour Memories

April 21, 2013

On the last day of the G&S tour we played at Scheld’apen in Antwerp together with Bird People and A Story Of Rats to celebrate spring. The evening ended with a big collective jam featuring González, Steenkiste, Druss (A Story Of Rats), Rois  (Bird People) and the Reverend 33. The jam is called “Where the bongos at, man?”. Here you can listen to it:

Thanks to everybody who set up a show, provided us with food, drinks, beds and listened to our bad jokes. And everybody who came to the shows. This trip wouldn’t have been possible without you!

Real people, real love! Peace!
