Even though the Rednose photos show only the two Amsterdam Beat wizards Aardvarck & Steven De Peven, Rednose Distrik is much more. To count Its members is impossible because everybody is invited - bums, nomads, singers, street musicians, fishermen, dancers, kids, academics with no ankles, nuns and seemingly normal people. Their primary objective in this?

To cultivate the Idiot - It's as loose and as beautiful as that.

Founding father steven De Peven, also a vital part of PIPS:Lab, is regarded as one of the maestros of the akai MPC 2000 sampler, while cohort and local legend Aardvarck is a well respected techno producer (check out the already classic Cult Copy). A super prolific beatmaker, Aardvarck is known for abstract soundscapes, early rave, broken beat and his club smacking techno. Together as Rednose Distrikt they produce a marvel of contemporary psychedelic sound that already sounds like the 'next' album.

The first Rednose Distrikt album, ' Iller Dan Je Ouders' was on Kindred Spirits in 2003 by Steven De Peven & Kid Sublime. The Kid stepped out after 'Iller' to concentrate on his blooming solo career and long time collaborator Aardvarck cartwheeled in as full time co-producer.

So that brings us to the 2nd and much anticipated release 'Poes' which was formulated with very little stress from the KS label - leaving the producers to find their own way naturally with the time and freedom to collaborate with whoever they bumped into. This 21 track masterpiece can be seen as a kind of compilation of Rednose over the last four years featuring a hand picked group of genius souls that somehow share a not altogether understood, understanding. Each reflects the Rednose vibe hene yjese are truly 'collaborations'. The artists were given real creative freedom- and you can hear it! featured guests include: Benny Sings (cohort on "Euh" Benny Sings Rednose), U-gene, Deborah Jordan ( Silhouette Brown), Mocky ( their Berlin based soul Brother), Harco pront, Rafaela Herbert, Overlast, and La Melodia.

Even the album title and artwork of 'Poes' (Dutch for pussycat)is part of that inside out Rednose universe where as Steven explains it " we live in a world full of fundamental contradictions, they make life so beautiful. The dog and the 'poes' is an example of this.''

The unique and fun album art is a freaked collaboration between Amsterdam's Top designers Para and Machine and we love it!

Look out for Rednose Distrikt 'on the road' with friends, in the not distant future with their big bold trademark bounce, thump and heavy rhythms.
