JLP Laid back psychedelic ambient vibe. I imagine this is how a fine Dutch coffeehouse should sound like, although I have not had the pleasure of visiting one yet. Favorite track: Bimhuis - Steim Summer Party.

Reviews / quotes:

Banabila worked with Radboud Mens occasionally, but as far as I know (in the vast catalogue of Banabila one can easily get lost) not much of that ever materialized into a release. On the disc 'Live 2015' we find two long pieces; they are both from 2015 and is by Banabila and Mens recorded as Le Guess Who and the other one at the Steim Summer Party and here Marco Douma also performed along with the duo. His contribution didn't make it to the disc as he's a video artist. His images are on the backside of the cover. I know the music of both gentlemen quite well, and I am quite surprised by what I hear. Sure, Radboud Mens made some great minimal techno records (for the long-lost Audio.NL label) and Banabila is also known to dabble with a fair share of rhythm, but in these two lengthy pieces they slowly construct a fine ambient house sound. You can hear the long building up of pieces, via a path of dark ambient sounds and little by little bits of the rhythm, are unveiled until you realize at a certain point it's all swinging back and forward; a full-formed ambient house track in progress. Mens brings his glitches to the table, but he expands them into a formal house beat, and the melodic touches might be Banabila's. Voices from deep space are used, just as the forefathers did of this music ages ago (well, all right, twenty-five years ago). There are lengthy passages between the beat pieces, the chill-out phases of the compositions and here both men show their talents as gifted improvisers. This is some sixty minutes of a pleasant trip down memory lane or just an early summer party. Hell, or both! Do you see what I mean? Lovely CDs, so why only 100 copies of both? (FdW)
