December 2016
Urban Decay released on CD!

Gert Emmens & Ruud Heij - Urban Decay

Two years ago, in December 2014, Gert Emmens & Ruud Heij released 6 "left over" tracks as download only. They entitled the download album Urban Decay. The tracks were based on and inspired by their performance at the E-live festival in 2012 and were completed in February 2013. Because of the change in their style of music (at first ambient on Signs, followed by a more retro Berlin School kind of music on Echoes From Future Memories), nothing was done with the 6 tracks, until the release as download. Since that release there have been requests from fans now and then, to release it on cd as well.
Now, in December 2016, Gert & Ruud found Ron Boots from Groove Unlimited willing to release the album on cd.

May 2016
Working on a new solo album. I want it to be an album with old analog gear only, no MIDI. With this, I hope to give the album a strong seventies feel, more even as can be heard on Triza. The sequences are the "heart" of the album. During two days with recordingsessions, I recorded the sequences at a friend's studio with his huge Moog 55 modular, the one shown on the photo. Now working on the intro's of the tracks. More news soon.

December 2014
On December 16, the new album from Gert Emmens & Ruud Heij is released, as download only! The music was composed and recorded in 2012, after their concert at the E-live festival. So, the music was recorded before Gert and Ruud started working on their ambient album Signs. The music is a strong contrast with the ambient music of Signs: very much sequencer dominated.
