After having been around since the mid 90s, the British trip-hop duo Tracing Arcs, releases one of its strongest albums so far. “Waste not, Want not – Wasteland Remixed” is the band’s sixth release and their third on 23 Seconds Netlabel. It contains eight remixes (from the album Wasteland) and one new song.
Tracing Arcs’ trip-hop sound is a smooth blend of different musical styles, with influences from the world of jazz, mellow electronica, chillout and downtempo beats. All interwoven with the soft, emotional voice of Fran Kapelle.

«Broken Doll – это сборник случайных мыслей – треков, которые получились в ходе музыкальных медитаций и импровизаций. Трип-хоп в чистом виде не является моим основным стилем написания музыки, но, пожалуй, именно он оказывает наибольшее воздействие на моё сознание и чувства.» — Eva Schlegel
“High up in the attic in the middle of the night… a faint light”
Van Ooij (1970) grew up in the south of the Netherlands and was brought up around music. His father was a local folk singer and Joris had the privilege to try out all old and strange instruments his father made and gathered over the years. Van Ooij followed violin lessons and played a lot on the harmonium. From a young age he started to write his first songs, formed a group with his schoolmates and at the age of 13 they act on national Dutch TV. He bought his first synthesizer at his 15th birthday ( Korg ms10) and that seemed to be the start of experimenting and playing a lot with more ectronic sounds & instruments.
He started to write for theatre and in 1996 he co-wrote the soundtrack and leader for a 26 episodes Dutch tv series named “West-Zijde Posse”
With the urge to create and as a kind of escapism he founded Fodiator (after a genius of the flying fish family) in 2010. A melancholic blend of indie, pop, rock, folk and more….call it “commuter-pop”. His sound, made with all kinds of instruments in combination with his “falsetto” voice has a strong weakness… he often jokes.
Press & Support:
– 22 tracks Brussels:
“The things we learn while selecting these 22tracks! Apparently, a ‘Fodiator’ is a genius of the flying fish family. Next to that, it’s also a project started by songwriter Joris van Ooij in his attic. He’s an self-taught musician who creates his songs alone and then performs them with his Dutch – Belgian band. Van Ooij likes to create an atmospheric and melancholic blend of indie, pop & folk, that reminds us of what makes acts like Efterklang, Menomena and Guillemots so great. Great stuff for the winter, that is coming’’.
– Radio1 Belgium:
“Sometimes it is allowed to play plain pop music, so with this song by Fodiator. A rich layered sound and great story about the longing for the first sunny day of the season, told in just 2.24 minutes.”
– 3voor12 :
“Joris van Ooij, musician behind Fodiator is offering his unpolished music, made on his attic, on the internet….We heard four quiet promising tracks that we hope will appear to hear on EP soon.”
– Elite Muzik:
“I found a new record from Fodiator, an upcoming indie band out of Holland. The record is titled “No Reason”, and sound pretty dam good, give it a listen…”
” A Spectacular Dawn Blinds My Eyes And Again I Stand On The Summit. Last Bow In Honor Of My Youth. How History Repeats Itself. And The Aches Of The Past Stab Me. The Disposable Events Of A Life That Cannot Rewind. I Remember My Childhood, Dreams That Are Too Far Away. Why Must It Be So Sad To Die?”
From Jhansi, India, this fresh and gorgeous chillout-ambient-downtempo release is incredibly enjoyable and almost palpable. It brings to mind a perfect combination of the worlds of Ulrich Schnauss and The Album Leaf.
Segunda edición de este gran álbum, que va desde un folk lo-fi hasta una sicodelia melancólica y femenina, canciones llenas de imaginario visual, con un sonido bien particular y que personalmente sentimos como único. Lanzado originalmente hace un par de años atrás, re-emerge con un nuevo arte, y algunos temas extras grabados en el intertanto, como si con el tiempo se hubiese perfeccionado así mismo, volviéndose mucho más coherente con lo que propone sonoramente, disponible en descarga gratuita, pero también pronto en una edición limitada en formato físico.
“I’ve been listening to this song for a long time, thanks to a compilation my mom owns in CD, and it has always fascinated me for expressing so well feelings of isolation, longing and bewilderment, although with some kind of hope. Whenever I find myself surrounded by those feelings, it always comes to my mind. This time it came to my voice, by choice and by necessity.” Cairo Braga, musician
“The city is an entanglement of grayscale. The colourful boy is no more than a dimmed shadow blending to the bleakness of the concrete and of the hearts he finds. Solitude is palpable, even though there are signs of life amidst the neon light billboards. Where could be all those who promised love, hope, company? Nobody told him how hard it was to grow living in a brotherhood that exists in name only.” Marco Magoga, illustrator

April 14&16, 2016, Kyushu district was attacked by huge earthquakes.
We hope that this album gives “consolation” for the people who suffered.
I turned 25 on 30/09/2015 while curing myself from a strong bacterial pharyngitis. the day before I was supposed to show up for my first vocal audition, to become a member of the Coral Livre da Cidade de São Paulo (São Paulo City Free Choir). the pharyngitis kept me from going. it was a bitter and sad birthday. “Sadness is a Blessing” was the song I chose to sing at my audition that never was. all vocals here were recorded in one take, just like an audition. all feelings here are being healed, just like the pharyngitis.

This album comes with an eclectic mixture of Drone, Noise, field rec of rain and some spoken word. It captures the spirit of confession in a nutshell – maybe doing it in another way, maybe in the same way. Who knows? This album draws you into itself, you will get sucked in and you will be forced to listen but you will enjoy every second.
