BEAST
Ens

Beast is Koen Holtkamp, who is also known as one half of Mountains with Brendan Angeregg. Ens sees Holtkamp making more tightly constructed compositions, compared with his previous sprawling explorations. The album was made as Holtkamp’s partner was expecting, then having their first child and the experience plays out in the heartfelt music, some grounded and some more for the clouds. LP and CD on Thrill Jockey.

BEAST (Koen Holtkamp)
Volume One

BEAST is an extra project from Koen Holtkamp of Mountains, in which he takes inspiration from both maximal 70’s Process Music and minimal 80’s pop electronics all at once. He thus guides his modular synthesiser through some awesome rhythmic canyons and spacey harmonic roadways, with Part One’s music distilled from a real time performance. Vinyl release on Pre-Echo.

BEAST (Koen Holtkamp)
Volume Two

BEAST is a new project from Koen Holtkamp of Mountains, in which he takes inspiration from both maximal 70’s Process Music and minimal 80’s pop electronics all at once. He thus guides his modular synthesiser through some beautifully detailed soundscapes that draw this listener deep into the core of the sounds and simultaneously out into space. This is Volume Two of his BEAST releases. Out on Pre-Echo.

Chris Forsyth & Koen Holtkamp
The Island

The sleeve art to Chris Forsyth & Koen Holtkamp’s new record The Island gives you a good impression of what they achieve here. Over four tracks, the pair’s synths and guitars recline into a warm haze of sunset ambience. The two play off each other with lots of nice details, but all in service of the music’s blissful vibe. On Trouble In Mind.
