The Black Atlantic lands huge placement deal

The American Broadcast Society is one of the worlds biggest broadcasters and well known for their hit-series such as Desperate Housewifes, Modern Family, General Hospital, Grey’s Anatomy and – our personal favorite – LOST. Their latest series is called Off The Map, a show about seven doctors working in a remote South American village and doing all sorts of crazy stuff. With no less then 7.5 million people watching it’s safe to say this show is doing pretty, pretty good.

We’re stoked to share with you that the creators of Off The Map chose The Black Atlantic’s beautiful song ‘Reverence for Fallen Trees‘ to end episode seven with. See for yourself how things worked out!

A big thank you to our friends at Ghost Town Licensing for hooking us up.

The Black Atlantic to tour China

JUE Festival. An independent urban arts and music festival in both Shanghai and Beijing that shows us a collection of alternative, creative and progressive arts and music, presented by the mighty folks of Split Works. Sounds pretty snazzy, doesn’t it?
Well, damn straight it does and that’s why we’re pleased to announce that The Black Atlantic will perform at this years Jue Fest.

For the first time The Black Atlantic is flying into a country where even Geert is considered a tall man. Google Maps told us they’re traveling a solid 5807 km. From Beijing to Shanghai to Chengdu, with a few stops in between and after. Starting in Beijing where they play at this years JUE Festival, to Wuhan and Nanjing. After Nanjing, The Black Atlantic is reaching the extremely high populated city Shanghai from where they take the plane to Hangzhou, Guangzhou, Shenzhen, Chongqing and Chengdu.

We’ve decided to capture this very special ten-days-tour as a video-diary. If  you curious to see how China treated the boys you should attend one of The Black Atlantic shows in The Netherlands. At Vera in Groningen and Tivoli de Helling in Utrecht, we’ll be serving you the best Chinese food while you’re watching this tour-diary (and of course they will be playing some tunes for you as well).

FabrIQ festival feat. The Black Atlantic

Some festivals are decent, some are excellent. Our definition of excellent? Well FabrIQ festival would be a good example. It’s takes place in ‘s Hertogenbosch a nice city by it self, but if you add a little Nils Frahm, Sleep Party People, Suuns, Lars Ludvig Lofgren, Cloud Nothings, Benoit Pioulard, Sea of Bees, Jay Minor & The Saint Helena Dove, Tu Fawning and some The Black Atlantic (yup…The Black Atlantic) to it, you will have yourself an excellent town to spent your Sunday (Sunday the 27th of February that is).

There are still tickets available! So claim those ‘I was there’ points! You’ll be happy you’ve done so (when you’ve ran out of topics at boring birthday parties’).

My bubba & You?

Umpf! We admit, that’s a terrible play of words. Fact is though, that our favorite girls My bubba & Mi are looking for an extra member for upcoming tours. As always the ladies are keeping it short and mysterious: sweet, musical & adventurous is what they are looking for. And of course, as any musician, you can’t be short on time. Even more important: you have to play an instrument. ‘Which one?’, you might ask. Well… you tell us. And while you’re at it, don’t forget to tell your friends about this awesome opportunity!

Looking back at V.A.S: Azure Ray

Yesterday we had the privilege to host Azure Ray during this years first edition of Vette Analoge Shit. A bunch of people showed up and  the Secret Love Parade, James Husband as well as Azure Ray themselves totally showed what they are made of! Anneke Hymmen shot some fine images to keep your memories nice and fresh. Check them out beneath!
