Stroom

Ziggy Devriendt
Label interview
08.25.2021

This brainchild of Ziggy Devriendt (AKA Nosedrip) rings out like a perfect collage for our fragmented digital world of plenty, wherein our job is to process and decide, then process and decide again. Originally a natural evolution from the Stroom Tv platform, there is something most honestly reassuring about what this Belgium based collective offers us: ‘(I decided) I’d make a mixtape with all the records I had lying around. It seemed so obvious to just use all the different stuff I liked, but at the time, it was hard to break that barrier in my head.’ Although discussing an early breakthrough mixtape here, such an Ethos still holds the centre stage for Ziggy and his collaborators; Like an updated Svankmajer animation we get to see what’s lying around inside Stroom’s head visually and sonically with each release. Again in Stroom, we can expect anything from the spectrum, soundtracks, avant-guarde, electronica, repurposed folk… Welcome to this eager unpredictable intersection called - Stroom.
