maarten van der vleuten released under a variety of aliases. 2008’s high intolerance towards low energies saw van der vleuten leave his safety zone and open up for the first time – not only by releasing the album under his given name, but also by taking a more personal approach than ever before. the journey would be continued on 2010’s the scars remain and has now been taken to an intriguing acme with his latest full length are you worthy?, an eclectic blend of personal genres.
providing a sometimes fearful insight into his current state of mind, van der vleuten has conceptualised are you worthy? as an at times alienating soundtrack for both his own life and that of the listener. although his entirely idiosyncratic ambient visions are again at the heart of the music, van der vleuten never abandons his house roots either, intertwining these two sides of his musical personality into, dare we say it, his best album to date, and available on cd only.
the release date is october 9, and it's available for pre-order now from our store.
