Below is a commentary by the label.

"I discovered the Dutch duo Grens from their self-produced tape Geen Mens Die Op Mij Let. Their music is an ambient, lo-fi, IDM-like mix between Civilistjävel! and Wanderwelle. Think of it as a kind of missing link. For this album on Vrystaete, they holed up in an isolated hut. The result is more radio-ready than a regular album. Throughout the album, there is a clear narrative based on the development of each track's mood and structure and their relationship to each other.

``de verborgen kamer'' may be a bit dark for Vrystaete, but the sound is never too cold, the textures never too hard...Despite the dark electronic bass, it's overall playful. , giving an organic impression. Perhaps this is due to the way the records were recorded...more like a live performance than a composed work...Speaking of live performances... |grens| has established itself in concerts. ...So I'm sure that's reflected in the recorded music...

|I think |grens| are a valuable addition to the Dutch electronic music scene, and apart from the simple fact that I like their music, I also want to support new and upcoming musicians from this part of the planet. I think it's important to continue. I'm curious to see how |grens| will evolve from now on, and the ``de verborgen kamer'' LP invites listeners on that journey...''

Enfant Terrible:

"Dutch duo |grens| I discovered through their self-released tape “Geen Mens Die Op Mij Let”. Their music is a sort of ambient and lo-fi IDM which you could consider like a missing link between Civilistjävel! and Wanderwelle. For this album on Vrystaete they locked themselves up in a cabin somewhere isolated. The result is more a radio play then a regular album. There is a clear narrative throughout the album based on the development of the mood and structures of the individual tracks and their interrelation.

Maybe “de verborgen kamer” LP is a bit dark for a Vrystaete but the sounds are never too cold and the textures are never too rigid… making the overall feel playful and organic despite the dark electronic basis. Possible this is due to the way the record is recorded… much more like a live performance as a composed piece… speaking of live performances… |grens| have been building a strong name for themselves with their concerts… so for sure this is flowing back into their recorded music as well…

|grens| I consider a valuable addition to the Dutch electronic music scene and next to simple fact that I do like their music I find it important to keep supporting new and upcoming musicians from this part of the planet. I am curious to see how | grens| will evolve from now on and “de verborgen kamer” LP is an invitation for you to step on board the journey…”
