Description by Description by Esc.rec .:

" Everything that spins, will meet itself again. Improvisations around a tape recorder take you to many destinations unknown to the regular travel agency of music. That which stumbles need not fall. We catch and we realign. When recording everything in one take, there are no errors, only intervals.

With Sluimer (Slumber), Jeroen Diepenmaat and Twan Sallaerts set out to outdo aesthetics again, which was doomed to failure from the get go.

Jeroen Diepenmaat is a visual artist with a predilection for sound, who has several other Esc.rec. Releases to his name. In his work, consisting of drawings, sculptures, installations and performances, he explores the cutting edge between image and sound and the transition from one to the other.

Twan Sallaerts is a walking talking music encyclopedia with a very broad scope, an avid radio show host and producer of probably the largest heap of unreleased miscellaneous music we know of. He also recently crossed over to the visual arts.

Diepenmaat and Sallaerts have been creating and recording music together on a regular basis for many, many years now. At some point in time they were known as Jool Hul, but the majority of their collaborative work remained hidden. Until now. "

Review by NR in Vital Weekly:

"There is something wonderfully lurid about Jeroen Diepenmaat and Twan Sallaerts' new album'Sluimer'. Part of this is down to the idea that everything is cyclical. Especially when it comes to music. The pair begin creating improvisations around a tape recorder. Everything This gives the songs an immediacy. On a first listen you don't know what is going to happen, or if what is happening was meant to happen.

The real thrill of'Sluimer' is when Diepenmaat and Sallaerts get locked in to a groove and stay there. The duo appears to be interested in trying things out and sticking with what they like. During'Terloops' there is a wonderfully warming organ that Welcomes us to the song. It gives off vibes of late-night roaring fireplaces. Mugs of steaming tea or cold beers. There are also some wonderful melodies deep down in the mix, like pennies in the back of a sofa. Behind this feeling of comfort and contentment, there is a repeating clicking noise. At first, it's barely noticeable. As the song progresses it starts to become all-consuming until the organ fades into This is what'Sluimer' does incredibly well. It gracefully moves your attention from one sound, or tone, to another. Without you realising it.

It has been rumored that Diepenmaat and Sallaerts had been creating music under their own names together for years, but this is the first they have unveiled. Another rumor hints that there is plenty more where this came from. If so, let's hope we don' t have too long to wait for the next installment. "
