New Print Bundles on Bandcamp

I’ve just added some gorgeous new heavyweight print bundles to Bandcamp for Isolette, National Ignition and Early Learning — a complete set of nkurence-designed album art.

Each print is just under twelve inches square in size (fitting nicely in a vinyl sleeve), has been digitally printed on thick 300gsm matte stock, and comes with an instant Bandcamp download in the format of your choice.

For those who don’t want vinyl, it’s still a great way to enjoy an element of physicality with your music, not to mention they’ll also look stunning framed on the wall.

All the physical items I have for sale can be seen my Bandcamp merch page.

‘Dresslocked’ Scoring and Sound Design

A few weeks ago I completed scoring this charming animated short called ‘Dresslocked’. It was the final year project for talented Teesside animation student Domareen Fox, and allowed me to break in a few new sound libraries, as well as record plenty of sound effects and foley work. I’m always up for more of this kind of work, so please get in touch if you’d like me to score your film/game project.

Isolette Available Now from Download Stores

‘Isolette’ is released today in its digital form, available from all the usual download stores and streaming platforms. Features a ‘Glassmaker’ remix by Roel Funcken. All downloads from Bandcamp come with a bonus track, ‘Spinning Alias’.

Other stores: iTunes, Spotify, Google, Amazon.

A small run of vinyl will also be available at the start of next week, released through Shipwrec. I’ll be sure to update with more info as soon as it’s available.

‘Isolette’ EP Coming Soon

I’m excited to announce that I’ll soon be releasing a new EP, called Isolette, through the Netherlands-based Shipwrec imprint. Due on the 13th of January 2015, it will arrive on 12″ vinyl plus download (UPDATE: the vinyl will be a week late, arriving on the 20th instead), featuring six tracks (including a remix by Roel Funcken), plus a bonus download track. All vinyl purchases will come with a download code.

The artwork was expertly designed by nkurence, and features some extra special ink finishes for the vinyl sleeve. It’s been a while since I’ve had my music pressed on vinyl, so I can’t wait to get my hands on these.

Coming Soon: Touched 2 Compilation

It’s difficult to believe that almost a year has passed since the first ‘Touched‘ album, but the next instalment of this charity compilation is due to arrive on the 28th November. Like the first, all proceeds will go to the Macmillan Cancer Support charity, which aims to provide cancer sufferers with care, support and assistance during and following treatment. Also like the first, a staggering number of artists are involved, though this time the number of participants is more than doubled: there are currently over 250 tracks confirmed for the release, including contributions from personal faves such as Autechre, Brothomstates, Datassette, Plaid, Mr. Projectile and Hecq, to name but a few. I’ll have a new track in there too. It’s sure to be an immense collection — there’s a full list of the artists involved on the Touched Facebook page.

Volume 1: Memory Waves (Tipping Hand)

The mysterious folk behind LA’s Tipping Hand Recordings recently celebrated their first birthday by assembling this excellent free compilation. Memory Waves brings together a selection of previously released tracks, including contributions from Kettel, Yimino, Borealis, Jacob 2-2, and many others, all remastered for the occasion.

From the press release:

Memory Waves features a selection of some of the world’s most diverse electronic producers from Germany, England, Canada, Netherlands, North America and the UK. Memory Waves sheds new light on songs previously released by remastering and reassembling each track into a fluid, storylike album.
