Description :Roel Meelkop studied visual arts and art theory at the Willem de Kooning Academy in Rotterdam, The Netherlands. He is a member of Goem, Kapotte Muziek and THU20. In the last couple of years, Meelkop has focused on solo works in composition and installation work.

Frans de Waard is making music since more than 25 years under many aliases and in different line-ups, the most well-known being Kapotte Muziek, Goem, THU20, Beequeen, Ezdanitoff, the Tobacconists and of course Freiband, under which name he already released an LP on ini.itu a few years ago. Other keywords to his activities : Vital Weekly, Brombrom, Korm Plastics ( look it up yourself ! )

Wíeman is their 'meltpop' duo, which was previously known as Zèbra. The project for this LP started when some obscure tapes released under the moniker Cybe in the early 80's found their way to one of those MegaUpload accounts that disappeared a few months later. So 'Positive Movement Muzak / New Age Synthesis' 'Cybernetika' and 'Cybonesië - Tropische Klankbeelden' were temporarily out in the world again. With the help of some synth forums the man behind that name could be located. With his approval and upon request from ini.itu, Wíeman, already famous for their reappropriation of Martin Hannett samples on 'Live in Leugen', used snippets from those Cybe tapes to create new pieces.

What you have now with 'Cryptonesia' is the unexpected meltpop child of dangdut and krautrock, filtered through electronica and post-exotica lenses. Refusing the temptation of going subtropical gabber, the good-natured beats, boisterous and carefree, exhale a cheerful and joyous mood. The epic 18 minutes long B-side is a freewheeling and energetic construction of meandering and hypnotic pseudo-gamelan riffs, resulting into trippy and lush washes of bliss. A record to enjoy, not only for its hedonistic take on music history reverse engineering, but also for the sake of its ecstatic feeling. File next to : Hematic Sunsets, Cluster, The Box-era Orbital, Harmonia, Raymond Scott.

The LP was mastered by Taylor Deupree
