Omnitropic presents Falling Into One, the debut full-length album by Phone Booth Robbers (Bastiaan van Staaveren), a psychedelic downtempo project from the town of Hoofddorp in The Netherlands. Phone Booth Robbers began creating music in the mid-nineties, gradually shifting from early trance music to richly melodic downtempo and electronica inspired by acts like Shpongle, Ott, Bluetech, Ozric Tentacles, and Easily Embarrassed. Mastered by Jeffrey van der Schilden at EE Music Studio, The Netherlands, with photography by Steven Willis.

  • Sounds interesting, I’ll listen :)

  • Tedem says:

    who is the artwork artist?? wonderful composed picture. not choosing my books over the cover but this is an exception

  • Claudio says:

    Another great album was born !

  • PazuzusPetals says:

    World class! This ranks with Hinkstep’s Sunrise From The Treetops, Globular’s A Self-Fulfilling Prophecy, and Sephira’s Imagination In Motion. Ektoplazm’s downtempo game is off the charts this year.

  • Valpo says:

    Excellent well done album Mr. Bastiaan&team.
    Its deep sounds and mixtures are giving a great and complete structure to a good quality trance. It was playing from 1 to 12 without stop, Nice listening and meditative atmosphere. I’m glad I got the news note about this update.
    Thanks guys for making this music available!.

  • Noahdecoco says:

    Beautiful arrangement. Perfect blend of sound dimensions. Listened to it from start to finish without neg criticism and that is very rare for me. Absolutely beautiful.

  • Alien Prime says:

    Usually I don’t like downtempo at all (too boring in most times), but not this time. It sounds great!

  • triptonite says:

    phaaat album very nice produced thx for uploading

  • kekskiller says:

    exceptionally awesome I tell you! stuff like that has to happen more often.

  • Alienus Supremus says:

    Me like much.

  • Psypunk Gr says:

    This year ektoplazm has very good quality in downtempo music :) keep the good work. I’ll put many song from ektoplazm releases in my festival dj sets.

  • Damn this is a quality release. Good job! Let’s make music together.

  • innersilence says:

    The spring has come. Great!!

  • Thank you all very much for your kind comments!

  • Lee says:

    That first track really caught me off guard, and unlike a lot of other albums where I find the first one of the few good tracks, it kept them coming.
    The cave metaphor in Six Hour Holiday is amazing, definitely working that one into my memory.

  • soma_junkie says:

    I’ll be listening to this a lot. Great work! If I had to name favorites so far I’d say “Signals From Inner Space” and “Short But Untold Stories”. But I really like all of them.

  • soma_junkie says:

    Though I should probably also mention “I Can’t Sleep Because You Can”, which is very good. Also, I like the cover. When I first looked at it, I thought it was CG.

  • innersilence says:

    the whole album is massive, but the “Dangerous Creatures” , i can`t even explain, what i feel…. the arpedgio sound and the melody in the middle…. WoW

  • Carma says:

    it’s early in the year yet, but I think you just gave us the release of the year. last thing i remember being so beautiful was hinkstep’s sunrise from the treetops. absolutely amazing work, hope to hear more from you in the future.

  • Teenik says:

    My first Summer Favourite. Greasy Mechanism! So Genius Track !

  • Matthias says:


    Very Nice Great Album!!!!!!!! :D

    Greetz From Germany

  • sighkedelek says:

    F*** yeah!!!!!

  • “I Can’t Sleep Because You Can” is just over the top perfect, and the album in whole is an amazing experience. Waiting to see more!

  • This album offers a lot of diversity and interesting downtempo progressions. Every song offers more twists and turns, developing bass lines and euphoric synth leads across every direction. The song “Circuit Bending The Universe At Your Desk” really takes me on a uplifting journey. “The Hills Of Faraway” puts me in a constant groove. Every track has something new to offer. This album is definitely not repetitive and it steps outside the normal boundaries. Evolving atmospheres, wonderful voice samples, and progressive soundscapes mixed with wonderful pads are the backbone to the chill out, yet head-bumping, harmony presented in this release. Well mastered and well thought out. Great hidden masterpiece!

  • @SpaceRabb1t says:

    Really really love the sounds of this album!!

  • Eleftheria says:

    Of course we all like it and already playing it on radio!

  • Matt Freak Flag says:

    This is amazing!

  • Best album in this year now. Thank you very much guys!

  • Wow, thanks again for all your very nice words folks. This really keeps me going. I never expected this…

  • Nicorai P. says:

    Great work, i like the Song; The Hills Of Faraway a lot 8)

  • giraffe lord says:

    I very rarely make comments on these type of things, but I thought I had better show some love given the hairs on my neck have been standing on end for the last couple of minutes. It’s a slightly damp spring evening and I was sitting here preparing a presentation for an important interview in two days time when I found myself just staring at my desktop picture daydreaming. I had been transported somewhere very pleasant by “DRTFM”

    Awesome work

  • Synt says:

    this release is perfect as it is. all in harmony… congratulations Bastiaan!

  • shayan says:

    awesome !

  • sound1 says:

    “Signals from the inner space” is literally from out of this world. This track alone made my day. “Hills of far away” kicks ass :-)
    downloading the album…

  • De Kluizenaar says:

    We call this “de krenten in de pap der muziek”, which means something like “the icing on the cake of music”.

    Phone Booth Robbers gives us mind-boggling sounds from outer space, especially meant for psychedelic recreation.

    Mandatory music for all the floating souls out there.


  • John says:

    Is there a way to listen to these files on my android? Adobe says my phone doesnt support flash. Wasnt sure where else to ask. Thanks

  • fernando says:

  • morx says:


  • Dennis says:

    Great to see such quality stuff coming from my home country. Keep it up!

  • Sasha says:

    I like it :D Very good!

  • PsyAmb says:

    What can I say ? Is this the finest debut to grace the halls of Ektoplazm ? Better than Globular’s debut ? In terms of tracks to quality ration I thinks so ! There isn’t a weak track to be found. Two super big thumps up to you. Please sir, can I have some more ?

  • Yuri says:

    Wow DRTFM is such a nice track. I sounds like I heard it before. maybe in my dreams ;)

  • jo says:


    geweldig :-)

  • EKN says:

    I like Phone Booth Robbers. Too Easily Embarrassed is Excellent. >>> Thnask for your music

  • stereofeld says:

  • jasofface says:

    This is brilliantly produced and written.unpredictable,captivating on acid.its a chill session that you can move to.greasy mechanism is so satisfying, it has all the elements, so tightly executed.so refreshing to hear different beats.i can’t stand repetitive crap like globular, reggae died of lung cancer years ago.well done.i would love to hear more.or some related material that any one can recommend.cheers.

  • Rakaanni says:

    Beautifull work ! :D

  • merzad says:

    ooooooo…… ashegheeetaaam

    Very good!

  • Rabbitfrog says:

    I agree I usually pass on downtempo as I think a lot of it is well not nori g but lacks emotion and a well defined beat. Almost as if they don’t take drums and percussion seriously just layering stuff over the “downtempo beat sound pack” that comes standard with any synthesizer.

    Nice job guys the effort shows and I would love to hear more. Preferably live.

  • soma_junkie says:

    I’ve had the chance to listen to this more and I must say Electric Insects Crawling Through A Greener Universe and Dangerous Creatures have really grown on me. I think Electric Insects could have been better if there was more variation in the bassline, but I love the little chattering woman in that. I thought the beginning of Dangerous Creatures was a bit plodding at first, but I think once that synth comes in after the reverby interlude it really takes off and compliments it well. Oh, and at this point I can’t even listen to Signals From Inner Space and I Can’t Sleep Because You Can because I’ve played it them many damn times and so I’m kind of sick of them right now. That’s a good thing. ;-)

  • PKTK says:

    One of the best finds if not the very best one indeed.

  • bluebone says:

    Thanks so much for this great piece of art.

  • Shantu says:

    Thumbs up for the Mysterious Stranger. :)

  • Hi all, thanks again for all your love. Spread the word… ;-) Peace!

  • Lewis says:

    This is ridiculously good quality, honestly one of the best albums on Ekto.

  • kitrinos says:

    I like the narration referring to Plato’s analogy of the cave in track 10 and how it fuses with the music. ”The prisoners will begin to experience the world outside of the cave for the very first time. And it is like nothing they’d have ever imagined…” :D

  • Delachronmusic says:


    This album fantastic journey of sound! Thanks!

  • Finn says:

    I stumbled upon this release by accident while listening to Shpongle on Youtube. It’s been a while since I have heard something this good. This is seriously an awesome release which is on par with the artist that it was inspired from. It also made me want to donate to ektiplazm.

    Thank you.

  • Dee.Keuss says:

    It’s been a long time I downloaded this album, and you can be sure that I often listen to it.
    I find a lot of simplicity, seduction and sensuality in it… a simple auditive message for a great sharing… thanks a lot !
    Cheers from France :)

  • PsyloCyBee says:

    That flow it creates…amazing!

  • Mr. Crevette says:

    this is just incredible! thank you so much!

  • les says:

    Absolutely fantastic album! Decided to download after hearing PBR’s on an Ektoplazm compilation and so glad I did. One of my best dl’s. Thanks artist and Ektoplazm. Look forward to new releases.

  • KC says:

    Very nice!! How did I miss this one until now? Brilliant.

  • Malocoxsix says:

    WOW !!! Phenomenal, fantastic, brilliant, great work !!! My favourite album on Ektoplazm… Thank you !!! Peace ! A new fan from France :-)

  • Maharishi says:

    This album comes in mind regularly when I want to listen to some downtempo music with a distinctive and unique sound far from i-have-heard-that-thousand-times-before.
    Incredible piece of work with a touch from the soul of it’s creator! And it feels like that without questioning.
    Never heard that artist before this release, but hoping to hear more soon.
    Thank you!

  • NX says:

    Lost my original copy of this album, so had to come here, pick another!
    One of the best albums ever.

  • Glary says:
