Amsterdam based radio show South Of North is set to drop its first ever release this November.
The freshly minted label kicks off with Ronald Langestraat’s album Searching, self-recorded in his living room on a 4-track tape recorder in 1984.
The recordings symbolise his engagement to cross-over everything that was known to him musically at that time. Most importantly, all the recordings reflect his way of searching; searching for his characteristic sound. Rhythmical patterns meet well-balanced distortion, shaping the music into a mirror of his character. He was part of several Dutch Latin and Jazz bands, including Cascada and Ritmo Natural. With the latter, he performed at the North Sea Jazz Festival
To get your ears salivating you can listen to snippets from the album below.
