brunk is Bert Vanden Berghe, DIY lowbudget homerecording, without any musical restrictions or stylistic premises. The songs on ‘sept 2003′ were made somewhere between 2000 and september 2003. It’s not easy to describe or to pigeonhole, but I guess the music brunk recorded in those days had a certain pop kitsch factor, a naïeve but eclectic touch, and tries to explore some musical boundaries in a very personal way. There are some hints and twists that point in the direction of the more experimental stuff he’s doing recently, but all in all this one shows the more melodic and accessible side of brunk.
We have some great WM Recordings merchandise available now!

“A loosely knitted tribute to the soundtracks from those icons of popular sleaze, the porn films”
A romantic Valentine’s gift from WM Recordings!
In 2004 the release of Wakka Chikka Wakka Chikka – Porn Music For The Masses Vol. 1 on Comfortstand.com caused quite a stir. Four years later it is one of the most downloaded netlabel releases ever.
Now WM Recordings brings you a new dose of “Porn Music Magic” to swing to/by, thanks to mr_melvis, the same producer who brought you WCWC vol.1.
Twenty tunes of porn groovieness and one bonus track with a ‘Behind The Scenes’ look at the industry will be sure to titillate even the most repressed listeners. It’s time to turn those lights down low again, and get it on – Wakka Chikka Wakka Chikka!

“After a thirteen-year sojourn, multi-instrumentalist Keji Hamilton returns with a new album of traditional Afrobeat music. Having spent many years playing with the legendary Fela Kuti, Keji is considered one of few current musicians who plays authentic Afrobeat — fusing jazz horns and instrumentation with African percussion.
Keji includes a variety of moods and themes, ranging from social/political commentary to tunes ready for the dancefloor. If you’re new to the genre, this is a great place to start!”
