De Fabriek Vinyl, CD & tapes by De Fabriek at Norman Records
B. F. E. Records (Minimal Man, Glorious Din) reissue this 1982 LP from Dutch experimentalists De Fabriek. Schafttijdsamba is a varied listen. On tracks like ‘Future Discoverer’ the group fit relatively easily into the minimal synth boom of the time, though admittedly with a more abstracted take on things. However, elsewhere the group’s minimalist groove tracks like ‘Barbara’ touch on The Pop Group and 23 Skidoo, and ‘Indudent Babylon’ is pretty much music concrete. Intriguing stuff.
