COTOPAXI
Cotopaxi is the playful project of Johann (aka Fyoelk) and Hannah (aka Moemlien). Both schooled at a young age to be free with sound they manage to create interesting compositions almost out of thin air, with great sensitivity for dynamics and balance. Their approach is warm and positive resulting in a ‘good times’ feel that will leave a smile in the hearts of the listener, so in their own way they are making the world a better place.

HUMUS
A multi-layered substratum, an organic sound matter shining under a full moon sky. Here music, like some appetizing ground digested by enthusiastic worms, reveals the very nature of compost: a gift from the earth.

DJ BONZAI TARZAN
Bonzai Tarzan has worked as a guardian at Doctor Evariste Ossip Natural History Museum for over twenty years. He usually spends his days at the Tropical Bonzai Forest section nourishing the colony of Liliputean monkeys that live happily amidst the lush foliage.

BUFFLE (be)
http://www.myspace.com/buffle
http://www.buffle.tk
These friends have been playing together since forever, lazily spreading their positive-vibed kraut pop jams on labels like Lal Lal Lal, Ultra Eczema, Bread and Animals, Breaking World Records or Relax Produzioni. Floating guitars, prehistoric mini rhythms and sunny keyboard tones are the keys of their universe. As Roope Eronen from Avarus wrote: « The wind plays the flute like Buffle their casios, percussions and guitars. So we hear a pure feast of love and joy. Flux of funny sounds meet clumsy and naive repetition in a way that would make Holger Czukay hot of jealousy in his pool ». Future releases on Young Tapes, Goaty Tapes, Future Sounds, Ikuisuus… Buffle also runs the Historiaens imprint.

Cotopaxi is the playful project of Johann (aka Fyoelk) and Hannah (aka Moemlien). These two in Amsterdam living Germans have been making the Amsterdam scene thrive again by organizing concerts, art-shows and making books, prints and releasing tapes and cdrs on the Stenze Quo label. Both schooled at a young age to be free with sound they manage to create interesting compositions almost out of thin air, with great sensitivity for dynamics and balance. Their approach is warm and positive resulting in a ‘good times’ feel that will leave a smile in the hearts of the listener, so in their own way they are making the world a better place.

CITY HANDS (nl)

http://www.myspace.com/helbaard
Besides organizing shows in Den Haag under the Helbaard name and running the label Silver Ghosts, MP has been taking on the alter ego of Matt Hooper Whale Voodoo survivor. « Matt Hooper has been entering the ocean in shark proof cages for most of his professional career, trying to become one with creation by confronting the arch enemy of hope and life personified in the Great White Shark, who’s rows of teeth and age old brute force make every trip down a rebirth, this is the moment to find your voice and embrace the light, forget all there is and transcend… »

« Both schooled at a young age to be free with sound they manage to create interesting compositions almost out of thin air. Their approach is warm and positive resulting in a ‘good times’ feel that will leave a smile in the hearts of the listener, so in their own way they are making the world a better place » (Ernie McCracken). Cotopaxi is the cool duo of Hannah MOEMLIEN and Johann FYOELK from the great STENZE QUO tape label.

WAIKIKI WALHALLA (ecu / uk / be)
« Weaving continous threads of sounds, we shall draw you house and lake and crowns » (Mei Yi). Hypnotic compositions in full slow motion exotic mode played on the sweetest instruments. Second gig by this band featuring members of BUFFLE, SUNNY DISPOSITION and THE CONTINENT MAKERS.

SURPRISE ACT
No idea. But very special.

DJ COOL BROCOLI (be)
DJ Cool Brocoli is Robert Louis Stevenson’s cosmic grandson, the most charming philosopher and story teller you will ever meet on your journey to the Samoan Islands (as it was told us by the Venerable Lama Sailor Scott Rinpoché).

DJ BONGO MAN (rdc)
One night meditating under the branches of his favorite baobab, Dj Bongo Man listened to the whispers of the sebene spirits. Be inspired by this sorcerer’s teachings.
