Kettel is Reimer Eising (born 1982), a self-described “elixir-brewing, camping-loving and musicmaking sorcerer-to-be.” He is well-known for his playful, spontaneous melodies and organic folk sounds similar to Aphex Twin, Jega, and Plaid.

Kettel has frequently performed live in his home country of the Netherlands, including at the Virus festival in Eindhoven, the Dutch Electronic Arts Festival in Rotterdam, and at Eurosonic and Noorderzon in his home town of Groningen. He has also collaborated on several projects of various remixes and compilations on his many record labels.

His album Myam James Part 1, released in April 2008, was followed in May 2009 by Myam James Part 2.

    I already have. He's my most scrobbled artist ;) Going back to my previous post about Kettel and video games, I would really want to see him making a soundtrack to a gorgeous indie game. He's already done Ibb & Obb but it would be cool to see something even bigger. It would be so cool to see his music in something similar to Journey, where visual beauty meets auditory beauty, where the combination is so tailor-made. That would be so fucking lovely. I really look forward to hearing something about the new album however, can't wait for that!

    Yeah that sounds about right. I would also add Gimmik to that list of artists that give you immense joy and satisfaction in a very special and charming way. The guy is flawless with melodies. If anyone else know of any other artists that make you feel the same way then feel free to post your recommendations ;)

    Revisiting Myam James 1 right now. Always a delight rediscovering this guy because he always seem to surprise you no matter how many times you listen to him. Few artists make you feel as good as Kettel. There is nobody like him.

    It's great to see that Kettel is entering the world of video games with his lovely music, that will give him some exposure. That's just the market he should focus more attention on so more people will discover this great artist that he is. His music fits perfectly with charming and imaginative landscapes of fantasy worlds.
