The Space Spectrum
The Space Spectrum are a Kraut/Psych/Drone/Spacerock-Collective from Rendsburg, Germany. They started off as the solo project of multi-instrumentalist Nico Seel back in 2011 but, after a few Bandcamp releases, he decided to get more people on board to add more atmospheric sounds and to form a full band. After several line-up changes The Space Spectrum were approached by the well regarded Greek label, Cosmic Eye Records, to record their debut vinyl release, “The Red Eyed Queen”. Renowned psych music blog, The Active Listener, described it as “…a pretty special piece of music which never fails to sound entirely modern, dragging the likes of Faust and Amon Düül kicking and screaming into the present.”
Following the release of this record they played shows with the likes of Follakzoid and kindred spirits The Cosmic Dead as well as appearing at the Berlin Psych Festival. They also went on to self produce and record their second album, “In Search Of Drone”, which is available on their Bandcamp page . This era of the band was mainly as a 3 piece with Nico being joined by cousin Nils on bass and drone effects along with regular drummer, Kevin Klein. They have since expanded to the current 4-man line-up with the addition of Florian on synthesizer.
The Space Spectrum released ‘Drone Jams Volume I’ on vinyl in 2015 and their follow up vinyl album, ‘Drone Jams Volume II’ in 2017, both on Drone Rock Records. The reissue of their debut vinyl album, ‘The Red Eyed Queen’ is to be released on DRR in late summer 2021.

Domboshawa is the psychedelic solo project of Anders Broström from Stockholm, Sweden. After the breakup of the hardrock/psych band Amaxa in 2015, Anders built a small studio in Hägersten and started to record drones and jams. His main goal was, and still is, to record very psychedelic music. He named the project Domboshawa after an inspiring hike on the magic mountain Domboshawa in Harare, Zimbabwe.
His first album Dark Lights was released on cassette on the Swedish label Ljudkassett! in October 2016.
In 2017 he released his first vinyl LP on Drone Rock Records titled ‘Minds Electrix’ . He followed that up with two digital releases, ‘Vibrations’ and ‘Beyond Zero’ which were released together on DRR as the double vinyl album, ‘Beyond Vibrations’. In 2019 Domboshawa joined up with members of Fanatism, Kungens Män and CB3 to form Swedish, psychedelic ‘supergroup’ Svenska Psykvänner who released the album ‘The Hägersten Sessions’, again on Drone Rock Records. In early 2020 Domboshawa released his third vinyl album on Drone Rock Records titled ‘Fyra’.
Drone Rock Records are due to release ‘Mountain View’, Domboshawa’s fourth vinyl album in January 2021.
Anders plays guitar, bass, drums and synthesizers.
