One of the most original accordion players in Eastern Europe is a composer, an author of music for theatrical performances and movies. Zabelov’s music can be described as an experimental mix of accordion, avant-garde, jazz and neo-classical sounds. After performing all over Europe with his duo Gurzuf, Yegor focused on his solo career which sometimes expands to a trio where Zabelov continues to reveal the creative possibilities. He’s known to produce amazing sounds beyond the usual accordion music.

Slumberland is characterised by unique musical recycling, masterful sonic experimentation and nearly ritualistic performances. Jochem Baelus’ homemade sonic factory is constructed from discarded sewing machines, deformed knitting needles, old hairdryers, antique projectors and similar props. The mechanical noise of the improvisational installation is complemented by his dark vocals and raw guitar parts. Think Suicide vs. Swans. Live, drummers Alfredo Bravo (Flying Horseman) and Frederik Meulyzer (Stray Dogs) provide an organic counterpoint. In February, Consouling Sounds will publish Slumberland’s second album »Sea, Sea, Sea, Drifter/See, See, See, Drifter.«
»Somewhere between Björk, Fever Ray, Kamasi Washington and plenty of other references, the dynamic duo created something that is hard to find these days: a sound that is truly unique and fresh compared to most of contemporary music’s releases.« Nothing but Hope and Passion
ÄTNA unfold an energetic, highly percussive, dark and twisted version of pop. Their music is an adventure riding between powerful extremes, whether sensual tenderness or raw fury. »La Famiglia – An Audiovisual Suite« was released in September on Berlin‘s House of Strength Records and is a joyous artwork of audio-visual one-shot recordings.
