"The Rusty Seeds" consists of 2 lengthy mixed tracks that go back in time

through Brume's long-term career.

As always a fascinating audio trip never to be missed !!

The Crawling Chaos "The Big C" | LP | 100 handnumbered copies I EV17 |

Release date 2020-05-04 LP LAST COPIES

Reissue of the classic 1984 LP !!             


Former Factory (Benelux) band soon publishing on their own imprint Foetus Products.

"The Big C" is their 3rd album (the 2nd being a tape called "Homunculus Equinox")

Back in 1984, I saw this LP pass by in the indie record shop at my hometown where I was helping out.

Not only was I pleasantly surprised to see this weird bunch of English eccentrics still active, but this LP

really blew me right off my socks, my absolute favourite album of the year !!


There was a contact address on it, and I finally got in touch with a mysterious bloke called B.B. Poultice 

(or call him the Village Clown)....the rest is history....


Recommended for the more progressive music lover with an eclectic taste, love it or hate it !!


A co-production between Foetus Products and EE Tapes

Maëror Tri "The Singles" | CD compilation I EE42 | re-issue I 2020-05-04 


Reissue of MAËROR TRI(...)'s full vinyl singles / EP's recorded from 1993-1996

(except for their first one, "Saltatrix" on Drone Records - DR01)


What can I say? They were my fave Drone/Industrial unit in the nineties and when this came out

15 years ago, it didn't last for too long until it was completely sold out....


So by popular demand, here's the reissue, no more no less !!

May the Force be with You !!

JAN VAN DEN BROEKE "Lost And Latest" | LP | 250 copies I EV18 |

Release date 2020-10-16  LP SOLD OUT

A new beguiling retrospective !!


After the celebrated LP-releases on STROOM (Jan Van den Broeke '11000 Dreams' / 2017) and MINIMAL WAVE (The Misz 'The Lonely Crowd' / 2019) EE Tapes proudly presents a new beguiling retrospective of Belgian art-house and ambient music artist Jan Van den Broeke.


‘Lost And Latest’ is - again - a cherry-picked set of the many projects of Jan, including ABSENT MUSIC, THE MISZ, JUNE11, and even his recent occasional project CANTO DE MUDO.


The 36 years spanning album (1984-2020) reveals 12 tracks - 6 of them were never released before, and 2 others can only be found on an obscure 1984 tape - blurring the boundaries between lo-fi minimal, desolate synth-pop, evocative and tender Spanish, French, and… Black Poetry and wide cinematic landscapes.


All tracks were (re)mixed and (re)mastered in 2019-2020 by Jan himself.

The album closes with 3 brand new songs, composed over the last 2 years.


‘Lost And Latest’ comes in a limited edition of 250 copies on 180 gm vinyl, including printed inner sleeve with liner notes. First 25 orders will include a free copy of the ‘Matter Is Alive’ CD, released on EE Tapes in 2008 (last copies).

The album is available directly from EE Tapes

Official release date: 16 October 2020.

First come, first served !!



A collaboration between 3 gents residing in the same (home) town of Sint-Niklaas (Saint-Nix), representing 3 different generations!

May the noise be with you!


This release comes packaged very oldschoolish and is quite limited!

MACHINERY DIRECTIVE "Lobotomy Springs" / HYPNOSKULL "Vier Geschichten"

- Limited split-release I EE Tapes | cassette EE43CS | CD EE43



Brainchild of Orphan S.C. Wallace from our hometown Sin City.

Due to Covid-19 restrictions, his debut LP from 2021 - A Significant Change - has still been delayed at the pressing plant....maybe this year?

Instead, we present his different face first: ambient / drone constructions created spontaneously as homage to EE Tapes' 35 years of electronic obscurities!

All sound and vision by Orphan S.C. Wallace. His floating drones are like a film between the ears.

3-2-1....relax now and let the earplays take off!


CD in standard jewel case limited to 100.

First 35 cps come in a coloured box (yellow, blue, green or red).


Retail / wholesale info welcome!

DE FABRIEK & P.FUNK "MUSIC FOR HIPPIES (Remix)" CD I EE Tapes | EE45 | 2022

Remix of the legendary 1988 cassette release by DE FABRIEK & P.FUNK.

Please notice this is a REMIX of a C-90 cassette, not a re-issue!


Another special release in the 35th year of our existence at EE Tapes, after an homage by THE ORPHANAGE COMMITTEE (blessed are you!). Only God knows what will be next....


DE FABRIEK and our label have had an excellent connection for many years.

We did some releases before on cassette, CDr and CD, and now the big chief of DE FABRIEK was so nice as to give us the exclusive rights for a BEL(gian) version of his newest baby

(De Fabriek FABPROD27 / CD 100 cps / NL).

Needless to say we still adore DE FABRIEK after all these years! First come, first served.

Mr. Moto Meets De Fabriek 'Rovelatous Dans Le Fabrique' | CD | EE Tapes | EE46 | 2022

CD reissue of a limited tape from 1996 on EE Tapes!

A co-work between Matthias Lang (Irre Tapes, Germany) and DE FABRIEK (Holland)

3rd and last special release for the 35th anniversary of EE Tapes!


'Quite an interesting and lively collaboration on this tape released by the Belgian Tape label EE Tapes back in 1996. Here Mr. Moto [Matthias Lang] from Germany and De Fabriek from Holland meet on a neutral ground to work on a unified project of experimental electronic sounds.

They are delivering to us weird yet beautiful electro-experimentations!

8 tracks (4 each side) crafted with minimal sequencing and yet sometimes rhythmic and slow moving forward implosions of melodies/noises.'

Limited to 100 cps

THE ORPHANAGE COMMITTEE is the solo project of Orphan S.C. Wallace, residing in Sint-Niklaas (Hellgium). On his long-awaited debut LP, he delivers fresh and playful soundscapes, often

THE ORPHANAGE COMMITTEE, strongly recommended for your mental moves!

JAN VAN DEN BROEKE 'Time And Desire' | LP 350 numbered cps | EE Tapes | EV20 | NEW!

After 2 illustrious retrospective LP-releases ('11000 Dreams' on STROOM in 2017 and ‘Lost and Latest’ on EE Tapes in 2020), Jan Van den Broeke – arthouse, ambient, and lo-fi minimal craftsman – is here to please us once more, with a prominent new release.

 

Be prepared folks for an overwhelming journey on a sea of melancholy.

‘TIME AND DESIRE’ is a refined and mature album containing Jan’s exquisite selection of 10  unpublished songs (recorded between 2006 and 2021) about memory, the journey through life, the passage of time, the constant craving, the burning desire and… some miracle moments.

 

Presented here are 9 tracks by JUNE11 and 1 by CANTO DE MUDO, in which – as we know Jan and his loyal friends - electronics, acoustics, samples and voices (including those of Drita Kotaji and Helena Legaz Torregrosa) meet and dissolve. Stephan Barbery excels as a special guest on guitar.

 

We get versatility and unity at the same time. We certainly hear echoes of ABSENT MUSIC and THE MISZ (Jan’s projects from the 1980’s), but we especially hear JAN VAN DEN BROEKE and friends summarizing life and music, while blurring time. The 1980’s, the 2020’s – who cares?

 

‘TIME AND DESIRE’ comes in a graceful jacket (showing pinhole photos by artist Lysiane Bourdon), in a limited edition of 350 hand numbered copies on 180 gm vinyl.
