About the album: Another token of the uniqueness of this remarkable group of drummers. Electronics mixed with heavy drums, melodic lines and thrilling rhythms, the pieces grow on you, once you are grabbed by the typical approach of this rockband of drums. Drums like never heard before. This band rocks. Slagerij Van Kampen TECHNORGANIC Drums and Percussion The most original band of Holland. Surely you never before heard or seen drums like these. Acoustic power with harmonious arrangements. Self-willed and swinging, overwhelming and spectacular. The coloured compositions, written by the founders and leader artists of the band Willem van Kruijsdijk and Mies Wilbrink, are collected in more than 10 albums and nowadays performed live by four drummers and one multi-instrumentalist: Gijsbert Zwart, Bente Olie, Boudine van Slobbe, Johan Boere and Robin van Vliet. Why shouldn't the drums have the leading role in a band? With this question, somewhere in 1982, Mies Wilbrink and Willem van Kruijsdijk began 'Slagerij Van Kampen': a pop group that plays solely percussion instruments. Their involvement with the world is translated into ethnic characteristic original compositions. That the drums, the most universal and probably the oldest instrument after the human voice, could also be the main part of a new form of rock-music is proved time after time by this innovating group. During 22 years, the Slagerij Van Kampen concept has grown into a phenomenon of which Holland has to be proud. It has grown into a role model for other percussion groups and with more than 100 concerts per year into one of the most performing bands. A few highlights from a long range of achievements are: two gold records and a Edison Music Award (Dutch Grammy) and a live performance for Nelson Mandela , but you'll find more on the web-site : www.
