For over 10 years, Bart De Paepe has sated the appetites of psychedelic searchers with his label Sloow Tapes. A peerless curator, De Paepe has unleashed crucial underground transmissions ranging from paint-peeling Japanese rock over bedroom poetry readings to laid-back cosmic Euro-prog in microscopic editions.
‘Verdronken Land’ was partly inspired by the drowned land of Saefthinge, the mythology of the elusive goddess Nehalennia, local history and nightly travels through the empty surroundings of the polder region. It’s lysergic texture channels early Tangerine Dream, K(C)luster, Taj Mahal Travellers and other space explorers into nebulous clouds leaving behind vague smoke patterns and faded shadows.
