1997: Jürgen De Blonde, alias Köhn, recorded his first album in his room/studio with only one analog synthesizer, a sampler, a drum machine, a sequencer, some guitars and effects pedals, a piano for children, a cheap microphone and a mini-disc recorder. The CD was released a year later under the catalogue number k-007 of the inimitable Belgian label KRAAK.
A leap forward: we are in autumn 2019 and Cortizona, the Belgian label specialising in neat and high-quality re-releases, is releasing “Köhn” in vinyl for the first time. This edition of 300 copies takes the form of a remastered double album and includes a new notebook by Jürgen De Blonde and Brecht Ameel de Razen.
On the occasion of this re-release, De Blonde gives some exclusive quadriphonic concerts with his songs from the time.
