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.

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… »

BACK TO HELBAARD AGAIN

« this Sunday 19 October Deathroes, Buffle and the Mïk Quantius Band.

Deathroes is the combined harsh darkness forces of Gerritt and Sixes, who with the precision of a sniper slice your brain in half with piercing high tones and trample all over your remains with rumbling low. It’s awesome!

Buffle are a favorite at Helbaard, first this was going to be a set with Abby from First Nation but logistically was just not possible, no worries though as Buffle are amazing on their own.
Congo Bongo inspired uni-mind jamz from these urban trancers.

Mïk Quantius is also no stranger to Helbaard but this will be his first set at the church, backed up by Pak and George W. Myers no one can predict what will happen as Mïk is one of the great benders of time that will ride the moment to unexpected glory.

DJ Snack Attack brings the goodz of Northampton legendary club vibes of the Basement. »
