Family and Friends(2007)
some poptunes, instrumentals and mucking about with sounds from an apartement in Amsterdam
A conceptalbum about collar parakeets, Gucci flipflops and procrastination
The third and probably last Monopoli RPM-record; some good stuff, some unfinished stuff, less embarrasing bits than previous years...I see it as the end of a trilogy of some sorts; 3 albums filled with snapshots
Sex and Violence (Now with extra cheese!)(2010)
An album full of thrills and shocking sounds with lots of creamy cheese on top
My fifth RPM-record (and possible the best, most consistent one) about futuredreams, communication errors and cycling in the sky. (Track 7 written by Serene Dominic)
Zeros and Ones Chinese Whispers(2015)
0s&1s: 8 tracks written and recorded in februari 2015 Chinese Whispers: 4 tracks; leftovers from my failed 2013 RPM Record. Finally finished and partly rerecorded in february 2015
