Het Droste Effect is, “Two guys rocking out in a studio and blending whatever sounds they like at any given moment in time.”
I first chanced upon Het Droste Effect, with the announcement of their ‘Random X Maybe’ track, commissioned for Eindhoven Psych Lab in 2014. A delightfully idiosyncratic collaboration, with Glen Peeters from Radar Men From The Moon.
I immediately added a copy of the creatively packaged, vinyl compilation of their earlier ‘Het Droste Effect’ / ‘Lingerland’ MP3 releases to my collection, such was my infatuation with their gritty, transportive sound. A sound which was further cemented with last year’s ethereally sublime, ‘We Are All Hallucinating’.
I have had the unbridled pleasure of witnessing Radar Men From The Moon in their natural live, improvisational element, on two rapturous occasions now.
Last year, following the release of their ‘Strange Wave Galore’ long player, then earlier this year in concert with The Cosmic Dead for their collaborative, shamanic wig-out, ‘Audio Test 001.epl 15 – hit, quit, rave, repeat’.
The instrumental powerhouse that is Radar Men From The Moon, have carved out for themselves an enviable niche, as their mission statement attests, “Their approach on the psychedelic rock scene is rather broad. By taking different genres into account such as shoegaze, neo-psych, space and noise rock, they take off in an interstellar exploration of new sounds”.
