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!

The first tape by Brahmen Raag, titled “009”, is now officially out on the Hare Akedod label. You can preview the full tape below and there’s an option to hit the “order” button and throw this one in your basket! Hope you enjoy!!!

Psi Lab already gave the tape a deep listen and come up with these nice words:

“… improvised arpeggiations a la mid 70s TANGERINE DREAM masterpieces PHAEDRA and RUBYCON…”

“…elegant harmonic patterns kinda like TONY CONRAD WITH FAUST meets FRIPP & ENO…”

“… a kosmische / minimalism hybrid sound incorporating TERRY RILEY’s A RAINBOW IN CURVED AIR…”

This Tuesday I will be teaming up with Mr. Edren (DSR-Lines) for the debut show of the harmonium-synth duo Brahmen Raag. We are opening for Bitchin Bajas at Gouvernement in Ghent. DJ Michel Gentil is spinning magic vynil before and after. Come by to get rid of that mid-week blues…
