When Michel Banabila and Rutger Zuydervelt (Machinefabriek) finished their first collaborative album, it felt like they were just getting started. Suprised by how fluent and natural their collaboration went, it was obvious that this wasn’t over yet…
While ‘Banabila & Machinefabriek’ was quite an abstract affair, its successor ‘Travelog’ is lighter, playful and rhythmic. Some moments might recall the mighty Tape, while others showcase motoric krautrock influences and subtle hints of African rhythms. All in all, this album clearly radiates the joy of its creative process and sees Banabila and Machinefabriek on the top of their game.
‘Travelog’ comes housed in a full colour digipack, graced with photography by Michel Banabila, designed by Rutger Zuydervelt. It’s released by Tapu Records, in collaboration with Lumberton Trading Company.

Banabila & Erker & Machinefabriek & Zenial is a limited vinyl release showcasing some of Banabila’s diverse collaborations along with a few new tracks. Tracks earlier released are “Deep in the Forest” (from “Route Planner “) and “More Signals from Krakrot” (from “The Latest Research From The Dept. of Electrical Engineering”). “Crowds”, however is an excitingly different version than the one known from the Sum Dark 12 release.
The two new tracks are the opening track “Ill Rave” (with Machinefabriek) and the delicate “Drops”. B-E-M-Z.clearly demonstrates Banabila’s versatility. But then – most of his albums do! The impressive artwork is also very much worth mentioning: it’s taken from a collection of kite aerial photographs by Gerco de Ruijter
