ABOUT

Studio outfit for drummer Marcel van As (Coparck/Spinvis) making tracks since the 2000's but until now only for his own listening enjoyment in his car. Heavily influenced by David Holmes, DJ Shadow, Beach House, Prince and Miles Davis (a.o) he'll release the first batch of songs in june 2020 to be the omen for the next years to come.

Marcel started out as a drummer for Rotterdam based Handsome 3some, releasing an album and an EP with EMI/Parlophone in 1999/2000. After that he played drums for Coparck between 2003 and 2010. Always interested in combining electronics with acoustic drums, he started out programming beats and learn more about drummachines and samplers. This combination attracted the attention of Dutch well-known singer Spinvis, who asked him to join his band. Marcel is playing for Spinvis since 2010, touring Holland and Belgium ever since and in the future. In between he sometimes does session work for artists like Roy Santiago, Freez and Gerson.

[[]togethermachine will at first be all about it’s own tracks, but wishes to be interactive in the future. As a platform for artists to come together on togethermachine.com to make music and other art.

The symbol [[[]] is internetcode and stands for a hug in the virtual world. [[]]togethermachine is not for the live-stage but uses the virtual world to get together. Let's hug and make music!
