Hello everybody,

Something old and something new:-)

Beautiful (re-release)

We decided to re-release an old track from our ‘Insandouts’ demo (2005) called ‘Beautiful’:

Back in 2005 we still operated as a live guitar hiphopband with Mark van ‘t Zet on lead guitar and Perry van Caspel on drums. Although our approach is totally different today, we’re still very happy with this recording. Perry plays in The Hustlers nowadays with another former Tuna lead guitarist, Richard Kivits. Check facebook for The Hustlers’ launch party on november 29th at cafe Reinders in Den Bosch, NL.

The Call (to be released)

We’re also happy to anounce that our new single ‘The Call’ will be available for purchase in december. This single is an updated mellow version of a track that ROF and Santuna C wrote in 2006, with Richard Kivits adding lead guitars.

The new version is recorded by Eggman, Kovski and ROF, with Eggman on bass, fretless bass, acoustic guitar, electric guitar, beat programming and sampling. Kovski added synthesizer tracks and samples and produced the track in his Tricksound studio. ROF -as usual- recorded some beatboxes, raps, main and backing vocals and synthesizer parts. Mathe Valks, former member of La Pat, is currently recording some clarinet tracks for the song’s instrumental reprise.
