from the track info on the site:
“I was staying at Morc HQ for a month in December 2006. A vacation, an escape from reality, a recording session for an album I still, in December 2012, has not completed.
I was planning on using Wim and Annelies’ Tascam 8-track to record some Drekka material and to familiarize myself with the machine, I believe Annelies asked me to help do some production on a Remora cover she was working on (‘Into the Sun’).
I worked on that, as well as playing around with some of the tracks Annelies had been working on for her second full-length, ‘Marit’.
As is a tradition with Day2, I decided to work out some special Drekka re-workings of the tracks for a birthday gift… birthday in the Morc dialect being ‘verjaardag’. I did a handmade package for it, sewing photos to construction paper and whatnot. The Bluesanct 3” version contains photos of the original artwork.
I really, really love these tracks! Working with Wim and Annelies always brings out the best in me, be it live or in session. It is a pity no one has put this out on vinyl yet… (yet).
In 2011, I decided to reprise the project, after finding files of the separated, unmixed tracks for ‘Marit’ on Nathan Vollmar’s harddrive.
I have included these three 2011 tracks, along with an unreleased outtake — ‘Have you heard?’ (Gv mix)— and an alternate mix of ‘Into the Sun’ (Drekka mix).
All the songs are by Annelies Monseré, except ‘Into the Sun’ which is by Remora.
As far as I know, everything on these tracks was played by Annelies Monseré, Nathan Amundson, Jessica Bailiff, and myself.
I look forward to doing more Verjaardag tracks in the years to come… and maybe I’ll even finish that Drekka album I started in Ghent six years ago!”
