Album Premiere Of Psych Stoner Rockers KOMBYNAT ROBOTRON & DUNDDW Split Album

Two European bands. One record. 100% improvised music. Kombynat Robotron and DUNDDW join forces to show the world two different visions of psychedelic rock, a music genre in which a wide range of styles have a place; from classic rock to progressive metal, passing through garage, kraut, prog rock, drone and even electronic music.

The truth is that there are times when a band goes into the recording studio with quite elaborate songs and with a perfect idea of what the band members want to do. There are also other times when the band goes into the studio without any idea of what they are going to do... And that must have been te case of Kombynat Robotron and DUNDDW when they decided to go into the studio to try to capture the purest essence of their particular way of understanding modern psych rock.

You can hear the stunning album in full with this cool album premiere

KOMBYNAT ROBOTRON: is a three-piece psych-kraut rock from Kiel (Germany) formed by Jannes Ihnen (guitars, synth, vocals), Claas Ogorek (bass) and Tommy Handschick (drums, percussion). All members were playing at other bands when first started jamming in 2018. Since then, they have put out 12 titles between own records and split albums, always sticking to the premise of improvised music halfway between kraut-rock and psychedelia based on repetitive patterns.

DUNNDW: is also a power trio from The Netherlands formed by Peter Dragt (drums), Huibert der Weduwen (bass), and Gerben Elburg (guitars). Coming from band such as Bismut and Mt. Echo, the three musicians started playing together in order look for the creative purity that you can get thanks to the inspiration of the "here" and "now" - they went into the studio with no previous ideas but playing around psychedelia, so whatever was happening there was instantly recorded. In 2022 they self-released their debut album 'Flux'.

The vinyl record is estructured in a way that each band has one side. The Satellite side (Kombynat Robotron) was recorded at Dickfehler Studio in Germany; then mastered by Hanno Janßen. The Moon side (DUNDDW) was recorded at Studio 888 in The Netherlands; then mastered by Pieter Kloos at The Void Studio.

The album, whose artwork is by Phosphor Visuals, is coming out on 9th June 2023 on a limited edition to 400 copies on two vinyl records variants through the collaboration of European indie labels Spinda Records (SP) and Sunhair Music (GE).
