This Saturday we’ll release a very limited edition 7″ (30 copies only) of Microplaza, a collaboration between Benjamin van Vliet (Microwolf) and Arno Breuer (pino plaza). Love these limited runs, and adore the music.
If you want to join the party: it’s also Saturday in Studio Patrick. New Tiny Roomster LOGOUT is playing too, DJ Don Derop is spinning the wheel again, and hopefully you are there drinking cheap beer and having a great time.
Today, Popronde Nederland starts off in Nijmegen. 100 acts throughout the whole city. Major event, really cool.

20.09 Plexus, Delft
11.10 Klein Berlijn, Utrecht

Yes, we will be present on the Independent Label Market in Brussels this weekend. We have all our stock + related stuff with us, including last copies of Lost Bear’s Monkey Pop cassette, Todd Tobias’ Impossible Cities 2 cd-r and even a very rare out-of-print I Am Oak release (the Skulk EP). Of course there are some second hand CDs and vinyl too, but that’s not what this is about. Come and say hi to us, we’ll tell you everything about our releases and of course we’ll bring an iPod to listen to them. Every purchase is celebrated like a birthday present. In fact, it’s label owner Stefan’s birthday tomorrow, so no better way to celebrate than to buy something from us! Also: on Sunday, The World of Dust is playing a showcase, at 14.00 o’clock. Too much fun. FB Event here!
For the latest release by American producer/musician Todd Tobias (Massabu Evening Entertainments), we did something special. A mysterious band is credited on the sleeve of the album, Combo Qasam. This band did not exist. A couple of Lost Bear and Rogue Minor band members then decided to bring this band to life and play the songs from the album.
Todd Tobias also wrote a pamphlet, talking about a DIY Fun Movement: get away from your screens and out of prefab discos, and create your own fun. The music and the pamphlet did create a special DIY Fun vibe on the three shows Combo Qasam played, in OCCII (Amsterdam), Worm (Rotterdam) and Studio Patrick (Utrecht). On the last night (the most successful expression of DIY Fun), there was a reviewer of 3voor12/Utrecht who wrote a very thoughtful piece with some beautiful photos. Read it here: https://bit.ly/2pSZaJb.
We also shot video material of the show. Get a sense of what was going on here:
️️️Today, we’re celebrating the release of Massabu Evening Entertainments by Todd Tobias and Combo Qasam! ️️️
You can listen to the album and order a copy of the cd or cassette on our Bandcamp page.
Yesterday, the first ever performance of Combo Qasam, providers of the DIY Fun Movement, took place in Amsterdam and it was a blast. Tonight it’s party time again in Rotterdam: Yugofuturism #5 Gillespie [KS], Flowers [NL] & Combo Qasam [NL].
On the latest album by Todd Tobias (coming out March 23), Combo Qasam is a fictional band from Massabu. But in the meantime, Hanad (electric guitar, rebab, kaban), Soofe (flute, farfisa organ, rababah), Maax (bass guitar, boxes) and Doog (spoons), along with dancers and actors, got ready to perform their weirdness on stage in this visible universe.
During three Dutch shows, Combo Qasam (in which we recognize members of Lost Bear and Rogue Minor) will play the songs from Massabu Evening Entertainments. They will bring their DIY Fun Movement to these towns, supporting Gillespie from Kosovo on every night:
