Far too much. I don't really bother with his records anymore due to the overload, although it's not as "bad" as 07-08. I may miss out on something, but I like records that have a certain event-feeling to them. His new one on Sonic Pieces comes close, but...no, not quite in the "must have"-territory. But "Marjin" and "Dauw" are classics that I re-visit and enjoy time and again.

I agree, those two are his best. The former is on vinyl too (on luxurious gold vinyl, no less!) and the latter really needs to be pressed. I don't listen to/download all of his CDrs etc, but I will take notice when periodically he compiles all the best bits into one release, such as Daas, which was a nice one.

Allengskens was a good one, but when i finally bought a copy it arrived with the cdr snapped clean in half.
luckily it was a plain white 3" cdr exactly the same as i use for the label, so i downloaded the flac, burnt my own copy and put it in the sleeve i had just bought..

I have to admit to being a bit of a Machinefabriek junkie myself - literally gigabytes of space taken up on the harddrive where I've ripped CDs ,CDrs, tapes, vinyl. Although, I don't buy absolutely everything. He doesn't release as much as he used to - seemed like a release every other week at one point.
Of the recent releases I'd say the collabs with Gareth Davis, the collab with Ithaca Trio and the "Apollo" 3" are the stand-outs.
I think he should release more solo 'albums' though. I think "Marjin" and "Dauw" are about it on that front.

there was a time I bought everything he did. Now for a few years I don't do that anymore. Still find myself getting at least about 3 or 4 releases he is involved with every year.
He should slow down and make a selection of the good stuff, and from the stuff select the good stuff and release only that. Which would make him release about 2 or 3 releases a year (I guess). By far enought I guess.

me too. stopped buying his stuff. far too much. there's one exception though. the collaboration with Peter Broderick. I really liked "blank grey canvas sky" and the new one on Mort Aux Vaches is from the same session. It's a live set they played with nils frahm on piano. you should give it a try.

Agreed, can't keep up with his pace, and i've become more selective and listen every release first, several album's i'd buy again if they were released today:

I have just a few releases from him and I love all of them. Indeed, he is putting out too much; I just can't keep up. Anyway, how can you listen to all these releases? Each of them takes time to get into and you won't do justice to the records if you just skip through them quickly. "Shuffle" and "Loops for Voerman" don't stop blowing my mind. I'm missing out a lot, I guess. But it doesn't matter if you have 20 or 200 wonderful records as long as there is enough supply for your daily need.

200 is still not enough

I have to admit invested interest but if you still dig Machinefabrieks output he has a new tape/digital release out on new UK label Chemical Tapes, soundtrack to a Paul Clipson film called Livemaze. If you dig the dutchmans sounds, you may like!

I'm going to mention the Fabriek + Fabriek CDr because it's incredible. Love it.
Just a slight fan of his other stuff i've heard. I should revisit...
