Banabila & Machinefabriek – Entropia (2019 :: eilean rec., eilean 60)

eilean records: We’re glad to introduce our next release which will open the new and last year for eilean rec., with Banabila + Machinefabriek who come back with “Entropia,” their fifth collaboration together.

One of the many reasons that we’ve been longtime fans of Eilean Records and to that extent, Mathias Van Eecloo and Rémi Verdier’s work and exquisite vision for the label is the conceptual center behind Eilean:

The label is based on a map with 100 points. Each point is associated to a number. Each number to a release. Each release will fill an area on the map around one point, giving it colors, relief & details. The final map project is completed by some soil samples from music artists, from where they live, collected by eilean rec. at home in some glass jars. It’s the physical print of the project…

Diversity is shown in this release via abstract harmonies, spoken words, pristine downtempo guitar, and vocal features.
