“Happy Van Music!” is music for driving and dancing. It is for modern travelers who hit the road without excuses, and know when to welcome the night while the earth spins in universal gravitational flux. The songs are an observation on transportation mechanics like transmissions, gears, and windshield wipers. Some objective advice is offered: one cannot drive a land vehicle underwater! In keeping with the vibes of early techno and club music, the rhythms encourage movement through time and space. “Happy Van Music!” is inspired by a van, this is music with a plan; after miles on the gravel, these tracks will make you travel.
