YOUFF - SPIT EPReleasedatum: 20.11.2017
A Bass and Drum Two-piece running idle on frustration, focused on intense distorted noise with a hardcore punk attitude. Channeling negative energy into a visceral beating. Go see them live.
While waiting for the release of their debut LP, Youff taped an eight minute EP. With ‘SPIT’ the band reflects on frustration and the anxiety of getting comfortable, as well as their early musical influences. For the sake of closure, they molted into a noisey hardcore / metal band. They strongly recommend to play it on a decent system and listen to it as a whole.Beluister

Wagonman - Wagonman Met Blaastaal AgainReleasedatum: 01.09.2017
"Wagonman Met Blaastaal Again" is the next cassette tape - digital release of Wagonman with writer, poetry and paint artist Bert "Blaastaal" Lezy. Just as their former release "Wagonman Meets Blaastaal", also this time all is recoreded live during a "Blaastaal" session at Radio Centraal March 1st 2017. The ultimate symbiosis of experimental electro, noise collision and texts (Dutch language lessons, old tv series conversations, cooking poetry, etc….) Sometimes still absurd but with tracks as "Beste Burgemeester" and "Kut Peeters" the magic of Flemish news snippets becomes the most clever and humoristic way of critizing the politics today.
Absurd sound collages with samples, text, electronics, dark wave style and brushed madness!
mixed & mastered by Wagonman & Peter DB sleeve cassette design by Bert LezyBeluister

RRAOUHHH! - C'est Louche!Releasedatum: 01.02.2017
666 La Chasse / La Face Cachée / Kinky Star Records …

Dead High Wire - Satellite State Brain DrainReleasedatum: 15.10.2016
This brand new DHW release contains 4 tracks recorded early 2016 in two different studios. The Germans and Defectors were recorded at Studio Jezus and the band will also release them on 7" vinyl soon. These songs reverberate for quite some time, and this has its consequences. Garage, new wave and postpunk, pulverized into raw, edgy, somewhat uneasy grooves: The Germans might be an ode or even a wink to bands like Devo. The postpunk track Defectors flirts with an anxious bass and bloodcurdling guitars. The other two songs on Satellite State Brain Drain were recorded at Studio Dhadha in Antwerp after the sound engineer there saw the band live in his bar. For The Grey Zone and Chains the threesome chose a live vibe. Chains is a hypnotic tightrope walk - think Goat. The Grey Zone has a deeper punk feel to it with guitar & drum sparks of gloomy postrock pieces. It’s the most punkrock song of Satellite State Brain Drain.Beluister
Dead High Wire - Endless discussions bore me to deathReleasedatum: 06.09.2016
Endless discussions bore me to death is a dark yet bright EP with which DHW shows its eclectic taste for lo-fi music. The Cabin has a more poppy yet overwhelmingly garage feel, devoted to the great garage revolution with bands as Reigning Sound, The Black Lips, Ty Segall, Jay Reatard, … While Dark passenger adds some surfy vibes to that sound, bands as the Growlers in mind. Black Widow is the band’s hommage to bands like Suicide. Metropolitan might stand out a bit from the rest as it tends to have a more noisy rock feel to it, however it illustrates the band’s love of long bits of guitar fuzz and noise as it end quite dramatically. The two bonus tracks are different version of two of the A-side tracks: the cabin is an alternate take and Exit Metropolitan is a remix calling for some Fuck Buttons influence.Beluister
MOAR - I WANNA HORSEReleasedatum: 31.05.2016
MOAR crawled out of the muddy gorillapancake of a one-man garagepunk recording project. In the cold (but kinky) winter of 2015 they’ve formed a live band and cleaned up their toilet with a deserted chicken of wich we’ll never know it’s second name. They recorded their debut album on a crappy cassette 8-track. This was first released on Belly Button Records on cassette. Sometimes we watch TV…
Eight LO to the FI reverberating future-fuzz songs about horses, cake, wizzards, our deepest feelings… Total runtime: less than you can say "Marry Poppins has a nice AND friendly lemon in her right hand"Beluister
RRAOUHHH! - RelaxReleasedatum: 01.05.2016
Rraouhhh! fears nothing. Just the fact of opting for an onomatopoeia at baptism shows that the pair is driven by primal scream syndrome and the expression of the deepest feelings. Rraouhhh! they said, screaming to the world their love of life and boorish radical that transform an innocent Italian ice unstoppable anthem martial devil, rich in sulfur and industrial debauchery …
RRAOUHHH is sophie M & M arno
industrial synth dance punk wave electro
"Relax" is a more decisive than ever album, opting for the flow of a sermon on, passing the rigors of erotic uniform incentives with an energy that can only arouse respect while submission."Beluister
Duane Serah - Duane SerahReleasedatum: 01.05.2016
Duane Serah is a prophetic project derivative splendor underlines its scratched angles. By doing so, he delivers an introspective wall of sound that oscillates between shoegaze & dreamy noise with a not so soft spot for all things fuzz.
Duane Serah is an alias hiding Hugues Daro (The Scrap Dealers). Cooped up in a creepy flat, he records his introspective compositions between winter 2014 and spring 2015 and released last October a dramatically spleengaze album on Sick Fuzz Records. Solipsism became band, Duane Serah generates distorted waves whose pinkish foam bathed the listener in a mysteen halo.Beluister

MASDA - MASDA cassetteReleasedatum: 18.01.2016
MASDA is Mathias Spriet, Tuur Delodder en Jan Van Den Abbeele “…De band lijkt zich te situeren binnen het post-rock genre, maar trekt zich daar ogenschijnlijk niets van aan. Ze zoeken de grenzen van het genre op zonder meteen te breken met typische kenmerken als lange instrumentale stukken, introspectie, met een belangrijk aandeel voor de gitaar. De experimentele rock uit de jaren 90 behoort tot het DNA van de band. Daarin laten ze veel ruimte open voor een waaier aan elektronische geluiden. Ze creëren ruimte voor avontuur, waarbij ze hun geluid naar de uiterste grens van zijn mogelijkheden blijven sturen….” (Bruno Vandenberghe)
De MASDA cassette is uitgebracht in een oplage van 100 genummerde exemplaren. De nummers zijn opgenomen in de loop van 2015.
MASDA is Mathias Spriet, Tuur Delodder & Jan Van Den Abbeele. The band explores the edges of their possibilities as a rock band. They do so by allowing space for all sorts of sounds combined with grooves and delicate guitar parts.
Undoubtedly the experimental rock of the nineties is a big part of their DNA. So is their love for songs.
The MASDA cassette is limited to 100 numbered copies. The songs were recorded throughout 2015.Beluister

Petula Clarck - Alle Apen Vrij !!!Releasedatum: 11.11.2015
"Alle apen vrij !!!" ("every apes free" is english) is the third album of Petula Clarck, created in a very short time and always with their spontaneous and unique rule: one hour and half to create one song or more, never retouch it and record it like the first shot. These songs are as instinctive as the ones on their previous albums but this time we can feel that they master the process like never before. They’ve pushed their limits further, using loop and bass for the very first time. The duo give us here the proof that their instinct vision of music never has been repressed. Yeah, instinct never lies… and never will!
16 new instinctive tracks Out on november 11th on:
Rockerill Records - Dewane Records - En Vla Records - Et Mon Cul C’est Du Tofu - Attila Tralala - Kinky Star - Windmill Prod.Beluister
The Jagged Frequency - The Jagged Frequency EPReleasedatum: 06.11.2015
These two youngsters are going hard since they dropped their debut EP this summer. With their fuzzed up sound and highly energetic live shows, these spacerockers are aiming for the moon. And beyond.
Energiek rock ‘n’ roll duo dat een garantie vormt voor stevig uit de hand lopende feestjes waarin enig fysiek contact met het publiek niet wordt geschuwd. De Antwerpenaren komen u tegemoet in White Stripes – opstelling (gitaar/drum) en hebben aanstekelijke garagerock in de rugzak.Beluister
Eraserhead - WartapesReleasedatum: 17.09.2015
Eraserhead’s first brain-wrenching trainwreck of an EP is the result of a two day live session recorded on tape at Warehouse Audio Recordings (hence the name) in Limburg, Belgium. It contains five songs which all lead different lives now but shared the same milk when they were put on this world. The songs sound varied but still function as a whole. The sound of this whole? Powerful yet very playful instrumentals combined with surreal lyrics about moody robots, dada-esque nightmares, intergalactic drunkmanship and hippie girls. Expect heavily distorted guitars and melodic, powerful vocal lines piercing through a more abstract canvas of electronics backed up by a mad drummer who’s accompanied by a rock steady bass.Beluister
Witch Trail – NitheraReleasedatum: 02.09.2015
Witch Trail’s “Nithera” takes the listener through a myriad of sounds. While not being confined to one specific genre, “Nithera” does prefer the darker sides of heavy music. Be it black metal, death metal, sludge or even post punk. This album is intended to make the listener feel surprised or uncomfortable at sudden twists and turns.Beluister
Idealus Maximus - Idealus MaximusReleasedatum: 22.07.2015
The best way to describe Idealus Maximus is a loud ‘n groovy instrumental riff machine. This trio started around 2005 and released their first demo/EP in 2009. It took some time and money to record the first full album “Idealus Maximus”, which was released in 2014. The line-up consisted of Erik (guitar), Pablo (bass) and Fanio (drums). Recently (2015) they had their first line-up change and they started playing with a new bassplayer Jonas,’ cuz Pablo left to live in Seattle. Idealus Maximus is known for their bass-heavy, loud and tight performances which will blow your ears and let your balls shake. So come check them out and don’t forget to bring your dancing shoes to dance away your blues! For fans of Karma To Burn, The Fur, Rotor, Majestic Sun, Tool, Hackman, Kyuss,…Beluister

Massis - MassisReleasedatum: 27.04.2015
Massis makes soundtracks for movies that never made it to the big screen.
A 4-piece instrumental band driven by guitars and a well-oiled rhythm section.
Despite their classic line-up, they prefer to travel off the beaten track.
The 4 members love the raw style of the 80ties, when music could still breathe passion instead of being a nice and cosy blanket of comfort.Beluister
Butsenzeller - Seqs & Drums & Rockin' SynthsReleasedatum: 23.03.2015
This album contains besides the elements implied in the title, also self deprecating irritainment, stubborn pigheadedness, fx overloads, polyrhythms, real emotions and other against the stream wackiness. If you can’t handle the artistic outlets of a musical ghostrider, RUN !!!
If you think you do, read on and enjoy the new Butsenzeller album: “Seqs & Drums & Rockin’ Synths” !Beluister
The Germans - Are Animals DifferentReleasedatum: 26.02.2015
The Germans are back with ‘Are Animals Different’, the successor of ‘Mother Sings in Front of the House’ of 2013. Whereas their previous album still featured modest cult hits such as ‘Lonely Kid’ en ‘A Romanian Crowd’, the new release offers one long 40-minute track in their very own idiosyncratic style split into two neat halves on the sides of a solid piece of vinyl. ‘Are Animals Different’ was recorded quasi live at Studio Jezus by Pascal Deweze (Sukilove, Gruppo di Pawlowski, …), and mixed by Dijf Sanders (himself, Teddiedrum, Violent Husbands, …). The result is now a subtle, then a slithery play of attractive synthscapes, ethnic percussion, freaking out psychedelica, smooth R&B singing and tight motor grooves.Beluister
The Fur - The FurReleasedatum: 23.02.2015
This is the debut album of ‘The Fur’ released in september 2014. It blends together the stonerrock genre with a heavy splash of `70s spacerock and is fully instrumental with the exception of ‘Expanding Universe’ which features spoken words by Terrence McKenna. The tracks are parts of a big trip through the universe, launching from Earth all the way through the ever expanding void and beyond.Beluister
La Jungle - La JungleReleasedatum: 17.01.2015
TRANCE/NOISE DUO FROM MONS
La Jungle, duo with six strings and four barrels in deep trance. Large primitive pulsions and sweaty dancing around a huge fire in the middle of the jungle. Two wild savages mix their debacles with few violent ostinatos. Throbbing shamans voices and overlap guitar riffs are supported by a wild and oozing drum.Beluister
Drip Dry Man & The Beat Revolver - Fuck & ForgetReleasedatum: 24.11.2014
Deze voormalige one man band brengt verre van preutse muziek. Zijn rauwe stem doet ons denken aan Howlin’ Wolf en Tom Waits. Met lyrics over drank, drugs, barfights en verloren liefdes weet deze charismatische figuur ons te entertainen. De vierkoppige band The Beat Revolver voegt het nodige rock & roll gehalte toe.Beluister
