We are The Planty Herbs. A duo from Utrecht, The Netherlands.
We make organic sounding electronic music that inhibits stress and appeals to your relax-chromosomes. From simple hip-hop beats to carefully sculpted aural landscapes, from house to the occasional liquid d'nb track, there is a wide variety of sounds that we love to make.
All our releases and beattapes are up for streaming on our BandCamp Page.
After a single and EP on Nightmares On Wax's imprint "WAX ON Records", we are on the verge of finishing our debut album.
We have nearly completed 18 tracks, a lot of which are collaborations with musician friends, the majority of which have been recorded in a dorm room with one household mic and cheapo external soundcard.
From a creative standpoint this has been great for us. But to make all of these different tracks, sounds and takes sound as a solid piece of work, we want to dive deeper into our sonic landscape in a renowned studio in the rural southern part of The Netherlands.
... And here's where you guys & gals come in:
since we want to (re-)record all of the tracks in a professional studio with all the people we collaborated with, get it mixed and mastered by a crafty engineer, reach out to a pressing plant to create some smelly plaques of vinyl (don't worry, if you don't own a turntable (WHICH YOU SHOULD, actually..) you can order digital files as well!) as well as taking care of artwork (which is a lot for a vinyl release),
..*gasps for air*...
you might be able to conclude that we need a budget to cover all of our expenses.
€6000 will take care of all of that, just so we have the creative space we need to blend all of this into a timeless piece of art and music and make it sound (and look) pretty darn good as well.
The reason we chose to go for a "fixed funding" is because if we will not reach our goal, we will not be able to deliver a finished product, and there won't be any money left to give our funders what they paid for. So no use for that.
Curious for previews? No problem!
