Fictional tribe music
Trance Plantations is the new brainchild of Nathan Daems and Falk Schrauwen (Black Flower, Echoes of Zoo, Sylvie Kreusch…). A half acoustic, half electronic duo invoking mysticism, speaking many dialects from the not-so-conservative tribes of the universe who search for trance in various sonic ways. This gets translated with the use of a whole bunch of classic and experimental instruments. Going from very ancient to newly made experimental instruments, all connected to meticulously adapted electronics.
On their first LP – the eponymous Trance Plantations – they immerse the listener in five different dream worlds. As a bonus, they teamed up with BetaMax & Danalogue – known from the British trio around Shabaka Hutching’s The Comet is Coming – for an epic dancefloor proof remix.
