Bart Wirtz and Emiel van Rijthoven of WAAN


Today, the spotlight shines on musicians Bart Wirtz and Emiel van Rijthoven who perform and record together under the name WAAN (Dutch for ‘Craze’).


WAAN have a new record, Echo Echo, out on February 24 through the Sonar Kollektiv label. As of this recording three tracks have already appeared on streaming outlets and through the band’s bandcamp page. In fact, just hours before we spoke the final advance track, Omi, dropped.


If you are a fan of Floating Points, BADBADNOTGOOD, Ezra Collective or any of the other modern artists making jazz more electronic or electronic music more improvisational, WAAN is for you.
