01.04.2018 – CRAZY EARTHLINGS COLLAB TAPE #1 – RELEASE AND PARTY!!
Artwork: Salvija Vaičikonytė (Salvija ART)
We are very happy to announce our next release with a releaseparty on Fool’s Day! 7 artists have collaborate on this 11 track tape. The release and party will be on april 1st, 2018. The album will be available on our bandcamp site where you can order the limited to 111 copy tape (with download code) or a digital release.
We want to thank al the collaborating artists: Arpatle, Butsenzeller, Sarah Malpass, Sololust, Lovataraxx, Wout Waanders and Zacki. Also a special thanks to: Salvija ART who made our tape cover!
Over the past decade we have met many earthlings. The idea for a collaboration project dates back to 2013 when Zacki from the German outfit UiJuiJui wrote the lyrics for a song named ‘Crazy Earthlings’ that he performed together with us on a concert in Lüneburg. In the years that followed we met several artists with whom they shared an overlapping interest in music.
In 2017 we were was asked to participate in the Nijmeegse Kunstnacht to set up a show with a local poet/writer for a three-in-a-row concert. The sci-fi poetry of Wout Waanders fitted so well with our music the initial collaboration idea from a few years back was rocket launched into the “Crazy Earthlings Collab” project. A selection of the songs we wrote for the show were recorded and Zacki was contacted to do the vocals to the song that logically became the title track of the tape.
THE CRAZY EARTHLINGS COLLAB TAPE – Expected April 1st
The idea started in 2013 when we did a small mini tour in Germany and did a song with Zacki Boy from German electro outfit UiJuiJui. The song was named Crazy Earthlings and paved the road for the idea to work together with other earthlings to record some songs. This vague idea suddenly was catapulted into a real project after we were asked by an art festival in Nijmegen to work together with writer/poet Wout Waanders and create a set for a show at the art festival. From there it went fast and we gathered with more and more artists to collab with. In the upcoming weeks we will announce the collaborating artists.
Here a two teaser pictures…
REPA (REFIX EDIT) – Expected end of April
Back to the Wave Earplug release… This includes our latest version of ‘Repa’ that was originally our first demo of the song. In that period we were looking for something different which resulted in the B-side of our 7″ Ende der Zukunft. After Staatseinde became a duo we heared the original demo version and reshaped it into todays live version that we finally recorded for this compilation release. Expected release date will be somewhere at the end of April.
30.12.17 – 02.01.2018 – DATO DUO RECORDING SESSION
We were asked by Martijn van Gessel from our label Enfant Terrible to record some songs with a new synth that soon will be available on the market. The Dato Duo is an intuitive synthesizer for two. During two session we gave it a try and recorded three songs. We used the Dato as a bass synth, as a sequencer and we sampled the drum sounds. We also decided to use some other new and old instruments.
17.12.17 – THE ENCORE OF 2017
The last shows of the year took place in Belgium and France and we are very overwhelmed by the greatness of everything and everybody involved. We had a blast!

16.11.17 – PEEK-A-BOO REVIEW FROM NEUE ZYKLUS
Link to the review: Peek-a-boo website
Dutch minimal synth-duo Der Neo (synths, vocals) and Andy Dufter (synth, programming, vocals) have already implemented various musical attacks on the ‘electro-world’. ‘Neue Niederländische Welle’ music, they call it. In September Neue Zyklus, their 6-song debut EP, will be released on Enfant Terrible. The EP will be limited to 250 copies only, and it’s finger-licking good, so I would recommend to the lovers of cool Minimal Synth-Wave, order it fast! That’s the only thing we can say after just a listening a couple of … or rather …. 10 times to it.
Min Min instantly sets the tone. Vocoder cuts-up vocals, a pounding drum machine mixed with some amazing retro sounding analog pleasure. It sounds retrospective as well as futuristic, sounds simple but it isn’t, it sounds like a wall. Only some 4 minutes later, Kosmos drills a way towards your eardrums. Sung in German, the song sounds very poppy and retro and it reminds me a little of Welle:Erdball.
Then we will get a cover-version of I Would Die 4 You (from Prince), although under the name Darling. Taking-on a song of the godfather of pop and getting away with it, it works out pretty well for Staatseinde! A delicious eighties Synth-pop sound with a melange of synths really revives this song.
But enough melancholy, time for tempo and synth-pop of the better kind with Just Chaos. It’s not very recognisable but the original is from Ace Of Base! Don’t let the song title misguide you … this is beautiful, melodic, well-sounding synth-pop that flashes you back to the eighties.
And then again, it’s back to Welle:Erball sounds with Volar. Although I don’t think the Commodore 64 was taken down from the shelves, it surely sounds like that. Almost a sing-a-long if you hear the catchy melody. It makes you feel happy while sliding with wiggling hips across the foggy dance floor.
Unfortunately, we have to make do with these only these 6 tracks on this EP. So, Yedo is the closure song and proves once more this band can do it all. It’s up-tempo, hooky, strong and slamming… take all those ingredients together and you get damn close to EBM. Some more aggression in the build-up, though it is still the synths that take the upper hand. In a near mythical atmosphere, the super dry rhythms continue to roll and thunder to the bitter end.
With this Neue Zyklus EP Staatseinde put themselves firmly on the electro-world map. The Dutch duo also included a fancy business card with a golden bow logo.

01.12.16 – THAT TIME OF THE YEAR… LAST SHOW OF 2016 @ KARGADOOR, UTRECHT

12.08.16 – EXCLUSIVE PREMIERE BY REPARTISERAREN: ANDERS
Swedish blog-zine and label has premiered another of our songs from the upcoming tape release, here is Anders!
09.08.16 – PRE-RELEASING NOT ENOUGH LOVE
Our tape-release of the “Lost in Time Tapes” is very soon. Releasing the tape in 10 days on Festival Obernair we’d like to give you some previews by pre-releasing one of the tracks.
The tape features an overview of the past decade of the band. Not Enough Love is one of our older tracks and was originally recorded for our debut album [ENTER]. Why it didn’t make it to the album back then? It didn’t fit in. The song didn’t feel ready. Early 2016, after the shocking news of the decease of Frau Jacke, Koen van den Berg, who recorded the song at the time had an intuition and modified the track in such a way it was finally finished and had to be on the tape. Her death also gave the selection of songs for this tape a new dimension, although this track would probably have made it on the tape anyway.

The lovely people from Gifgrond made a video of the performances of the night. It includes our single ‘Wir Gehen Nicht Mehr Weg’ and our cover version of ‘I Would Die 4 U’.
The day after the dead of His Purple Highness we felt this bassline was ready for a Staatseinde version. Another day later we performed our version of ‘I Would Die 4 U’ at Gifgrond in Tilburg. 2 days later we recorded the track in our studio and made a DIY music video.
06.04.16 – NEXT SHOW @ GIFGROND, TILBURG ON 23.04.16

We have wonderful memories of our last show we did 5 years ago and are really looking forward to go back to this wonderful place! Gifgrond is a way of sharing and celebrating the different, non pretentious, genuine, marginalised, self made, self organised, independent, non conformist ideas of music.
16.03.16 – LIVE VIDEO FROM THE ARE
Last friday (11.03.16) we performed in The ARE on MerweRTV. Here are 2 songs from the show.
14.03.16 – STAATSEINDE: 10TH ANNIVERSARY!

For this occasion we are working on a release of a ‘new’ record. The Lost in Time Tapes will be released on cassette tape and features a selection of unreleased tracks from the past 10 years, from old demo songs to more recent studio recordings.
18.01.16 – GONZO CIRCUS MAGAZINE #118 – REVIEW, ENDE DER ZUKUNFT
“…Met ‘Wir Gehen Nicht Mehr Weg’ heeft het Utrechtse Staatseinde een onvervalste danshit beet, die met gemak een elegante spreidstand over veertig jaar elektronische muziekgeschiedenis tot een goed einde brengt. Ook de chaotische ommezijde valt ons in de smaak, al hangt er een Hollandse pils-lucht aan de (nochtans Duitstalige) samenzang. We vergeven Staatseinde dat ze er live uitzien als een kruising tussen een bebaarde Devo en Gary Numan met een omgekeerde blikken vuilnisbak op zijn hoofd, en blijven hen volgen!…”
With ‘Wir Gehen Nicht Mehr Weg’, Utrecht based Staatseinde has an unadulterated dance hit, which easily, elegantly straddling, brings forty years of electronic music to a successful conclusion. The chaotic reverse is also our cup of tea, altough there hangs a Dutch lager-air in the air to the (however in German) vocals. We forgive Staatseinde that they look like a cross between a bearded Devo and Gary Numan with an inverted garbage cans on his head when performing live, and continue to follow them!
14.12.15 – REJOY OUR LATEST SHOW!
In addition to the news that Staatseinde will continue as a duo we have this video for you from our latest live-show.
12.12.15 – ENDE DER ZUKUNFT REVIEW BY JUNO RECORDS
Enfant Terrible is on one of their famous rolls as of late, and right off the back of an excellent EP from Sololust, the label drop an EP by Utrecht minimal electronics deviant, Staatseinde. “Wir Gehen Nicht Mehr Weg” is a fast-paced electro-leaning cut that brings back all the best of the 1980s – the chirpy, Germanic vocals, the wonky baselines and, of course, that inimitable metallic drum machine flex that rattles on ever so well. “Repa” goes for the same approach and it comes out winning on all accounts; the wavey rave melodies, the bittersweet bundles of melodies, and those distant vocals.
12.12.15 – STAATSEINDE CONTINUES AS A DUO
Staatseinde has gone through many line-up changes over the years. Frau Umlaut joined us in 2011 and we have done some great shows and had a lot of fun over the past 4 years. Whether we will continue as a duo or expand again, you never know… The future will tell!
29.11.15 – WHAT A NIGHT!
What a great time we had at the lovely ACU. Really big shout out to all involved making this night a blast! Butsenzeller and We Love People in Bearsuits for their great shows, Stroombeestje for the most amazing visuals that really gave that finishing touch to our performance, the ACU-crew, Frau Umlaut, the ex-Doctor, Mr Zugabe, the photographers (Jerry van Vliet and Utrecht Roxx), the audience,… We were great!

26.11.15 – WUNDERKAFFEE
This weekend we will release our new 7 inch “Ende der Zukunft” in ACU during “Ende der Zukunft Präsentiert” where we will perform alongside Butsenzeller (BE) and We Love People in Bearsuits (NL).

28.10.15 – ENDE DER ZUKUNFT PRÄSENTIERT!
In exactly one month Staatseinde will host it’s own event. We will bring you two great artists: Butsenzeller (BE), We Love People in Bearsuits (Utr) and of course Staatseinde will hit the stage as well. After the live performances several artists will spin the decks. It is going to be awesome 🙂
fee: 6 euro
(3 euro’s after midnight)
A night full of rockin’ synths, danceable wave, neue welle and stomping electro!!!
Welcome to the crazy, parralel universe of Butsenzeller, Antwerps well known bearded cult-dude. He is touring his latest record “Seqs & Drums & Rockin’ Synths” which came out on UK based label Jesus Factory as eye-blinding-green vinyl earlier this year. What this man does to dance music is what the Sex Pistols did to rock’n’roll.
In the past Geert ‘Bootsie’ Budts was the drummer of (too many) bands like Traktor and DAAU (Die Anarchistische Abendunterhaltung), delivered beats and samples for artists like Kylie Minogue, Helmut Lotti and Electric Alleycat and worked together with Pieter Embrechts, Nikkie Van Lierop, Occupy Antwerp and many more.
We Love People In Bearsuits from Utrecht is out there since 2007. Their rocky music leans on Germany’s danceable New Wave from the 80s, also known as Neue Deutsche Welle. After a few years of silence the band came back from the forrest earlier this year. This time without their bearsuits and with more music.
And then its up to us. With a pretty much completely changed instrumentation, we will probably sound even more electronic and make it even easier for you to dance on our neue neue welle sound.
The evening becomes night with several dj-sets and mash-ups from artists seen live during the night. Butsenzeller dj-set, Dufter & Der Neo and We Love Bearsuits dj-set. Visuals are brought by the one and only Stroombeestje. Expect intergalactic, überdancable and rockin’ music from the 80’s all the way to the future and back to the past.

05.03.15 – ANTWERP GIG TO BECOME A DJ-SET!
Due to the sudden seperating of our drummer we are very sad to tell you that we won’t be able to do a regular live show in Antwerp on March 27 at “Het Bos”. Since it’s very close to the gig we it didn’t feel right to retrieve and not show up. Therefor we will do a dj-set where we will include some Staatseinde tunes.
03.03.15 – THE DOCTOR HAS LEFT THE BUILDING!
After 9 years of being the Slacht-Zeuger for Staatseinde the Doctor has decided to leave earth immediately. No goodbyes and also no more shows with the Doctor, his departing is irreversible!

Staatseinde has been busy recording last year. Ok, actually we’ve been recording new songs since early 2013 as you might have seen here on the website as on our facebook page. And finally we will also release some new tunes again!
First we will do a digital release. It will be released as a QR-code accompanying a collaboration brew beer release by RUIG Bier and Rooie Dop from Utrecht. Our song “Waiting for the Sun” will be part of the limited edition brew “Black Storm”, a very dark barley wine. And at the end of the year we will have a new 7″ release. We give you more info soon, but here is a hint: It’s including more beer. There will be a limited edition beer specially brewed for us by Neobosski: say cheers!

Definatly the “Liebe Nachbarn Tour” and for the Kommander a solo-set in China! Also it was great fun that we started with the Staatseinde DJ-set which evolved through the year and gets more Staatseinde-like everytime we do it.
