Drummer Frans van Gastel (YouEcho) and bass player Willem Janssen (Clemm) started making electro-acoustic music together in the late 90s. As Flugroove, they were among the first Dutch artists to experiment with a new style called indietronics.
After four well-received EPs, Flugroove released their first full-length record ‘Like Brethren’ in 2005. By then, they had evolved into a five-piece band, featuring a singer, guitarist and violin player. Together, they played all kinds of club shows and festivals until the group fell apart in 2006. After that, van Gastel and Janssen stayed in touch and featured on each other’s solo efforts. Van Gastel even made 365 videos for Janssen’s spoken word project Breath Clouds. The duo never actually stopped making music together, but didn’t release any of their songs. In 2019, they decided to get together regularly, which ultimately resulted in the 13 songs of their brand new record Reinsonation.
