2011 release. Limited numbered edition of 600. Great, fantastic minimal synth tracks from legendary Dutch duo Van Kaye + Ignit. Van Kaye aka Ed van Kasteren (studying art history and serving as the singer of Monomen in the late '70s) and Ignit Bekken (performing artist and painter studying to become an art teacher) met in early 1980 and started working and experimenting with synthesizers. The result were the highly sought-after minimal synth classics A Slight Delay (1981) and With a Little Help (1984), which they distributed and published through their own Ding Dong Records and Tapes label. Another ex-Monoman, William Wiusselink ala Wizkopf, joined the project in 1982. Van Kaye + Ignit's Ding Dong label also published beautifully designed releases of independent minimal wave artists such as The Legendary Pink Dots, Bene Gesserit, Anne Gillis, and many more, including the all-time classic must-have compilation Film Noir (1984). This box includes both tapes, A Slight Delay (as eight-track demo and 11-track original release) and With a Little Help, as well as the ultra-rare Picasso on the Wall 7" (1981), 17 compilation-contributions from 1981-'85 (including the tracks from the 1982 Radionome compilation), seven previously unreleased tracks and demos recorded between '80-'85, and a 30-minute live concert held in Rotterdam in 1983.
