New release on Rebel Up Records 27.05 > Schroothoop – Klein Gevaarlijk Afval (pre-order vinyl now)

hey all,

New release coming up on Rebel Up Records this wednesday 27.05
the debut mini album Klein Gevaarlijk Afval by Brussels world jazz trio schroothoop.

mysterious world jazz with DIY instruments

Brussels-based trio schroothoop (Dutch for ‘junk yard’)
is formed by Rik Staelens (wind & string instruments), Timo Vantyghem (bass & clarinet) and Margo Maex (percussion).
Their tribal oriented debut mini-album titled ‘Klein Gevaarlijk Afval’ (Small Dangerous Waste) features homemade instruments built from lost and found objects like scrap wood, old metal or anything that would end up in a landfill. The band’s music is infused with sounds from around the world orchestrated by PVC flute melodies, jerry can beats and washtub bass lines.

Mysterious world jazz with Northern African chaabi, South American reggaeton, Eastern oriental melodies and Afro-Cuban rhythms, resulting in a danceable and hypnotic trip through the Brussels melting pot.

Post production and mixed by David ‘Dijf’ Sanders and mastered by Jürgen de Blonde (KOHN).

Artwork by Eva Lynen on screen-printed on cardboard covers in the studio of the Brussels collective Hashët. Limited to 15 handmade vinyl copies only. Sold out already, but end of June we expect a proper vinyl release of the album in bigger numbers. Available digital on our Bandcamp, as well as the official vinyl pre-order at discounted price for 1 week.
