Remixes & Beyond


What we have been up to, you ask? We do not sleep here at BIINDS HQ, that is for certain.

While we're slowly working on our new EP, a few remixes by us/for us have been released.

First, we released "It is I (KvK Devil's Night RMX)", an earth shattering remix crafted by BIINDS' and ReVerse Bullets' own Klaas Von Karlos. A nifty little VHS style music video put together by Nicolo Sommer for the track is also available for your viewing pleasure here. You can grab the track for free if you wish to do so

Second, a remix made by us was released for the alternative/post industrial band X-Vivo. It features vocals by X-Vivo's talented singer Alina who, in our opinion, sounds very close to Amy Lee of Evanescence. You can listen to the track via YouTube and download it for free on X-Vivo's Bandcamp.  

Last, but certainly not least, we gathered an entire band consisting of Heloise Levebvre on violin, Klaas Von Karlos on electronics and synths, Nicolo Sommer on programming, synths, sound design, mandolin, Jordi Kuragari on guitar and Gidon Carmel on live drums to rework Collide's track "Pale Blue" which will be released May 22nd on Collide's double album "Mind & Matter"

As always, thanks for the interest in our music.

Cavern Of Anti-Matter

Hormone Lemonade

Hormone Lemonade

Cavern Of Anti-Matter return for their third studio album on their own Duophonic label. Hormone Lemonade sees the band heavily utilising the sounds of modular synths and home built drum machines, yet still keeping the loose, improvised sound familiar to fans of their first two albums, with minimal guitar melodies and live drum kit helping to build hypnotic layers of texture.

The albums genesis was in the self-constructed rhythm machines of band member Holger Zapf, the Taktron Z3 and Taktron Z2, being recorded to tape during three one-hour sessions. These sessions also included the use of 70s Hohner and Eko drum machines. Holger played his parts in a free-form way and the bpm varied wildly as it was not possible to sync it to any outside controllers.

Tim Gane edited these initial jams into useable chunks and proceeded to overdub each new rhythmic “chunk” with some basic musical ideas, keeping in tune to the hum of the machines and retaining the “feel” of the inherent pulse. Joe Dilworth arrived to lay down a beat over these minimal backing tracks, going with the flow as best he could.

In the following months the music was fleshed out using various synths and sequencers from Roland, Arp, Oberheim and Holger’s modular synth set up. As well as many of the bass and sequencer parts the modular also supplied the chords by tuning each one of its five oscillators to specific notes and intervals

Praise For Hormone Lemonade


“Their most successful album to date … With ‘Hormone Lemonade’ COAM have contorted that off-kilter groove into a tighter, more intense and – more importantly – totally unique aesthetic”Electronic Sound

“Keeps Stereolab’s earworm melodies as well as their oblique songtitles, using modular synths to patch together longform jam sessions”DJ Mag

"Cold and bouncy autobahn action from Tim Gane, his current accomplices and a couple of overdriven homemade drum machines. The antic motorik spirit of Stereolab lives on!"Mojo

“A winning melange of tinny disco beats, retro-futuristic textures and layers of synth, it’s by far their most cohesive work to date” – Record Collector

“Like a meeting of science and nature in a hall of mirrors, it’s a synthedelic delight” – Prog

[Phase Modulation Shuffle] “A glowing orb of a song that, true to its title, shuffles along with an antigravitational grace. Rather than being a song to sit down and admire, 'Phase Modulation Shuffle' suggests a new dance craze created by an alien humanoid race. Imagining it being played out on a neon-lit dancefloor on a planet many galaxies away, but not too dissimilar from our own, 'Phase Modulation Shuffle' makes perfect sense. It sounds like it's been beamed across space as a vision of how bold and bright music can be."The 405

“Dynamic and minimal – a brilliant record.” Nick Luscombe, BBC Radio 3

Title: "Nu_Polygon releases Dystopian City, a noir cyberpunk ambient odyssey in the same genre as 2814"


"Dystopian City is an album inspired by 2814 hypnagogic music and the more ambient side of vaporwave. Neo_Polygon's album is a mix of old computer sounds, mall music loops, ethereal pads, advertising snippets processed beyond recognition and commercial stock
sounds. Old and new sounds are fused to create a smooth blend of vaporwave tracks. Perfect for sleepless night when you don't really want to think about anything but just feel your state of being.

Mostly melancholic in tones, Dystopian City could be the soundtrack of a cyber punk anime about a lost love in a meaningless existence."

“From the far out reaches of space
comes the latest release from Bonsai Universe.The band is the
brainchild of musician Woody Aplanalp and his new album "Moonstream"
is performed, produced and mixed by himself. Aplanalp has worked with
well-established artists like Bobby Womack, Lauryn Hill and Aloe
Blacc, and he has taken those experiences into his new 13-song
release.”—The Record Journal

San Gabriel, CA October
2017—Bonsai Universe is the creation and brainchild of musician
Woody Aplanalp. Aplanalp has made his mark primarily as a guitarist,
recording and touring with an unusually diverse and notable array of
artists such as multiple Grammy winner Lauryn Hill, soul legend and
rock n’ roll hall of famer Bobby Womack, UK chart topper, Aloe
Blacc, Indian fusion master Trilok Gurtu, and the “Lion of
Zimbabwe” Thomas Mapfumo. Aplanalp’s avid experimentalism on the
guitar, combining disparate elements of rock, psychedelia, world music
and the avant garde, have also led to collaborations with Nels Cline
(2001’s Destroys All), Banyan with Stephen Perkins, and Old
Californio. All of this has served as stepping-stone for the creation
of Bonsai Universe and its new album, Moonstream.

Moonstream is
a journey to an inner world of electric folk and an outward expansion
to the far reaches of a deeper space. The album winds an unlikely yet
surprising path from harmony and synth laden electronic music
(Moonstream, Starstream, Should I Believe You) to rock and pop
sensibilities (Am I Good Enough, Sweet Exaggeration, Walking With My
Eyes Closed, Once Upon A Dream), to front porch acoustic music with
it’s eye on a bigger picture (A Lot of Nerve, Summertime), to
utopian and dystopian vistas (Too Real, Astrotonic), whether real or

With such eclectic influences over the years,
Aplanalp has developed his own unique style. “I enjoy playing every
kind of music,” he said, “ I’m thinking of this as debut album,
even though I have 2 other solo records in my past. They were just so
long ago and the sounds on this record are so

Aplanalp, who plays much of the instrumentation
on the album, also enlisted some heavy friends to help out. Anthony
Logerfo (Promise of the Real, Neil Young) lent a hand with drums, Paul
Lacques (I See Hawks in LA) added dobro and guitar, pals from Old
Californio Jason Chesney and Justin Smith contributed bass/ vocals and
vocals respectively, while Miguel Atwood-Ferguson arranged strings.
Other very notable contributors include vocalists Rick Garcia, Kathryn
Shuman, and Liela Avila, as wells Robert Hall on Synthesizer, Caroline
Cirone on arco bass and Bryon Holley on percussion.

grew up in the San Gabriel Valley and has music in his blood. His
father and uncle are renowned jazz sax players, Lanny and Richard
Aplanalp. Picking up the guitar at the age of seven, he started
playing music because, “I thought The Beatles were cool.” His
first tour was as the bass player for the Nels Cline Trio, which set
off a long career as a sideman. Bonsai Universe and Moonstream was
both written and arranged by the artist who surmised, “I think I
have my own style, but that’s more for others to say at this

Logerfo is also a friend of Aplanalp, and was partial
inspiration for recording the album. “He was going to be in my
band years ago when I had a band, but we both got other gigs and
became busy,” explained Aplanalp. “Everytime I see him he’s on
my case to jam or make a record. And I’ve been making some
recording equipment upgrades, so now I’m satisfied with the quality
of my recordings. The songs “Summertime”, “Sweet
Exaggeration”, and “Should I Believe You” have been around for
years, but I’m only happy with the new versions. “

inspiration has been today’s political climate. “It’s
unfortunate, yet inspiring,” he states. “The content of the
record is not obviously political, but the theme of the first and last
songs (“Moonstream, “Starstream”) are about escaping from the
craziness. I have been pretty happy over most of the last decade and
was content to help other people with their music, ride my bike, and
simply enjoy being a sideman and music teacher. With the rise of
demagoguery in our society, I feel a need to do more, and doing music
is the only thing I have to offer.”

Moonstream is a welcome
solo project and fantastic debut from Bonsai Universe and Woody
