Michel Banabila and Rutger Zuydervelt (Machinefabriek), both Rotterdam-based, have been collaborating since 2012, resulting in five full length albums so far. The duo’s output is versatile, with elements of ambient, noise, musique concrète and fourth world. To quote Peter Hollo (Utility Fog): ‘a Glitchdroneworldbeat collaboration to die for’.
For Ambient Layers, Banabila & Machinefabriek have created the brooding ‘Cassina’. A layered tapestry that slowly builds the tension, before landing back on earth again. A voyage distilled to four minutes.
A work of freakish art, a collage of soundscapes from across the planet colliding through Hasssll's uniquely eerie and ambient brand of abstract trumpet-based composition. Transportative, unique and timeless, this album has become one of my favourites of the last several years Dr. Reality
