From Safe Trip – “TO WHOM IT MAY CONERN: WHILE PATROLING THE FORBIDDEN FOREST LATE LAST NIGHT, WE CAPTURED A HUMAN-LIKE LIFEFORM THAT WE BELIEVE MAY BE EXTRA-TERRESTRIIAL IN ORIGIN. THE CREATURE, WHO WAS ABLE TO CONVERSE IN BOTH DUTCH AND ENGLISH, TOLD US HIS NAME WAS “DARLING”. WHEN WE DISCOVERED HIM, HE WAS CLEARLY DISOREINTED AND CHANTING THE LETTERS “J”, “P” AND “S”.

IN HIS POSSESSIONS WE DISCOVERED A PLASTIC BOX INSCRIBED WITH THE ABOVE INITIALS AND A FLAT BLACK DISC STAMPED WITH THE CODE ST005. UNDER INTERROGATION, THE SUBJECT TOLD US THAT THE BOX WAS A “DRUM MACHINE”. IT HAD BEEN GIFTED TO HIM BY HIS GRANDFATHER, WHO WENT BY THE NAME “JOOP”. HE ADDED THAT MUSIC CREATED USING THIS DEVICE HAD BEEN ETCHED INTO THE SURFACE OF THE BLACK DISC.

HAVING FOUND A SUITABLE MACHINE TO EXTRACT THE MUSIC FROM WITHIN THE GROOVES, WE WERE ASTONISHED BY WHAT WE HEARD. THERE WERE SIX COMPOSITIONS ON WHICH THE SUBJECT’S FAMILY “DRUM MACHINE” WAS PROMINENTLY FEATURED, REPLICATING PROGRAMMED ELECTRONIC RHYTHMS THAT SOUNDED ALIEN IN ORIGIN.

THE WARM AND LOOSE FEEL OF THESE PERCUSSIVE ELEMENTS WAS FURTHER ENHANCED BY THE SUBJECT’S CHOICE OF ACCOMPANYING ELECTRONIC MUSICAL FEATURES. THESE FREQUENTLY CAUGHT OUR EAR AND ENHANCED OUR COLLECTIVE MOOD. THESE VARIOUSLY SOUNDED INTERGALACTIC, LOVED-UP, DREAMY, OTHERWORLDLY AND SOOTHING. ONE OF OUR COLLEAGUES, WITHIN EARSHOT, SPONTANEOUSLY STARTED DANCING.

WE HAVE KEPT THE SUBJECT UNDER OBSERVATION AND WILL CONTINUE TO DO SO UNLESS WE RECEIVE INSTRUCTIONS TO THE CONTRARY. IT IS OUR BELIEF THAT THE MUSIC SHOULD BE MADE AVAILABLE TO THE PUBLIC.”
