Tapu Records / Netherlands / 2022 / CS
The first time Stijn Hüwels and Cok van Vuuren collaborated with Michel Banabila was in April 2020. They made an extremely peaceful 12-minute track in reaction to all the upheaval in the world due to the COVID-19 pandemic, to soothe some of the stress and calm you down. The track was picked up by Apple Music and added to one of their playlists, "Pure Meditation', resulting in over 665.000 streams in just a few months, still increasing to this day. Droney synths and imaginative electronics are mixed with space guitars, all infused with analog elusive layers of tape echo and reverb.
