it has been a while since we put out the first record on our * van doumen* sublabel. but the time has come to do it once again. it features surprisingly well-known artists for doumen standards, such as nyc prodigy photay, psychedelic la beatmaker ras g, studio barnhuis darling kornél kovács and leipzig legend leibniz. all are remixing original doumen releases. so i guess your are old enough to decide for yourself if you find that interesting.
