Door de Brexit komen titels die uit de UK afkomstig zijn nog altijd
met vertraging binnen. Soms valt het mee en duurt het slechts 2-3
weken, maar het komt helaas ook voor dat we 4 weken of meer moeten
wachten. We doen ons best om alles zo goed en snel mogelijk te
regelen, maar het blijft lastig...

About the two dedicated tracks:
CD1 track 05 Until we meet again (for Anton)
Anton was the father of my ex-wife, therefore my
ex-father-in-law and the grandfather of my son.
He passed away on December 18, 2022 after a long
period of suffering.
Many beautiful memories will remain, and he’s in
my heart forever, with love.
CD2 track 06: The final dawn (for Hans Moret)
Hans Moret was the host of a Dutch radio show
playing electronic music.
Through the years we became more and more friendly
and close with each other.
During the last period of his life, Hans suffered
from pancreatic cancer.
After he told me there was no hope anymore and he
would spend his remaining time in a hospice,
I composed this track for him in different
versions and let him decide which version of it
would be on this album.
Eighteen days later, on April 12 2022, Hans passed
The music was played at his funeral.
