Now it’s summer break time at Distract Vibes Productions. So no concerts for a while.  In a few weeks time whe’ll be heading to the south for a relaxing holliday. First concert after summer will be the 18th of september at the Koffie 5 Euro in Rotterdam. The first time we’ll be playing our hometown in a few years. Should be nice. We’re working hard on a Europe tour in october and november. A bunch of shows allready booked and a few options. More info after the hollidays.

Here’s some video footage of our Amsterdam show from last april. Interesting stuff, a completely instrumental piece of music with a raw and edgy sound and nice dynamics. Special thanks to Alicia for filming. Check it out here on Youtube, or in our own video section.

posterdokhuisThe 24th of april we’ve played a show at the Dokhouse Gallery in Amsterdam. See the Facebook event page. The Amsterdam project SteQ with Peter Quistgard on electronics and Stephen Doyle on drums will be the joining us. They will perform their own set. http://thelock.bandcamp.com. Modern Art from Ids Dijkstra in the Galerie and vegetarian foods in the restaurant. Concert starts at 21:00. Come along to have  a long lasting Psychedelic experience. DJ Miss Whips will be playing 50ties and 60ties Rock and Roll from 23.00.  The entrance is free.

Just finished a new Vibes Videoclip “Psylomatic Bikeride”. Very trippy, weird stuff. MomoPsylomatic Bikeride... did the Video editing and Day-T the audioworks. Have a Ride!!!!

Sadly we’ve postponed our small London tour to a later date. Originally we’d go for a 3 concert tour to london in the first
week of may. Although we had two concerts booked, at the rhythmfactory in Whitechapel and the Dublin Castle in Camden, the thirth one at the Lewisham Arthouse didn’t work out because we couldn’t find a suitable date in their agenda. We’ll have another go later this year.

mergedparadox13Finally got around to mixing the live @ Paradox recordings. They’ve been on a shelf for a couple of years but it’s stil good stuff. Check them out on Bandcamp or Soundcloud to listen or download.

Our digitalised releases  on the Distract Vibes Productions Bandcamp page.

Would like to draw the attention to the people of Ardour for their fantastic work in creating a free (pay what you can) professional audiosoftware studio. An inspiration to us all.

We’ve finished the new recording fase in the studio last july 2013 for another new release at the end of this year or maybe the beginning of next year. It’s gonna be a combination of recordings we’ve just made and the audio footidge of a recording stage in France last april with our mobil recording device. Hopefully it’s gonna be the realisation of a longtime dream we have, creating a fullscale instrumental piece of work. Mixing will probably start in march 2014. We’ll keep you informed.
