VIEWS (Album, to be released Oct 19th 2018)

2018’s album „VIEWS“ is heavily inspired by the wonderful outlook from the balcony in HENK REISEN’s studio and residence. This setting results in a release with more airy, atmospheric, graceful and fragile compositions than ever before.


MOOOVIT (Album, 2017)


HENK REISEN are more on the funky side of electronic music with their seventh release, the album »MOOOVIT«. Moog bass lines, funk guitars, Rhodes electric piano chords and 101 synth solos meet robotic vocoders, multi channeled »aaah« choires and double tracked lead vocals by Henk. Together they celebrate rhythmic pumpin’ jams reminiscing the Seventies and Eighties. »We got to dance, dance, dance, keep on dancing …«


HOTEL SOUND (Album, 2015)


42 minutes, 12 tracks: The album »HOTEL SOUND« is even dubbier, more electronic and richer in transients than its predecessor NIGHT CRUISER. Synthesized click-a-dee-clack percussions and noise loops build spaces for deep analogue basses, saw wave layers or field recordings from Tokyo subway.


NIGHT CRUISER (Album, 2014)


The album »NIGHT CRUISER“ is all about cars, cities and nocturnal driving in eleven tracks with a total duration of 45 minutes.


VOICES (EP, 2012)


HENK REISEN is substantially on the path to pure electronic music on 2012’s EP »VOICES« . Some more poppy arrangements and sporadic guitar appearances fit well into aesthetics strongly effected by synthesizers and drum machines.


CHANGES (EP, 2011)


The EP »CHANGES« is just all about that: change, it’s risks and it’s chances. 27 minutes of pulsating rhythms deal with one of life’s key questions: Where do I go, where do I want to go, and why the hell are these two answers not exactly the same? Musically the topic is dressed in downtempo, pop and electronic. Additional vocals are contributed by Petra Geldermann, Thorben Koch adds some fluent guitar lines.


JIMI’S SMOKED PORK (Album, 2010)


»JIMI’S SMOKED PORK« is a compilation of HENK REISEN’s more groove orientated outfits from the years 2008 through 2010. In terms of musical style it offers straight-forward funk hammers like »Catch The Crew« or »Funqu’on (Hold On)«, crossing the line to jazzy arrengements like »Les Yeux Sans Visage« to pay additional attention to downtempo-esk electronic tunes like »Isilov & Wanit«. »Funqu‘ On« features the wonderful Petra Geldermann on vocals.


ROOTS (Album, 2009)


This album titled »ROOTS« (august 2011) is a compilation of the handmade and guitar based music from the salad days of HENK REISEN’s musical youth (2006-2009). Soul, Folk, Beat, Britpop and Rock struggle for dominance.
