  1. Hi, Suction Records began in 1997, making this year our label's 25th anniversary! Massive sale on now - 50-75% off on many items, and most of our stock available at a discount. Get your fix from one of the longest running electro/IDM/synth labels in the biz, from now until April 1. USA/Canada: https://suction.shop/collections/on-sale Europe/UK: https://suction-eu.shop/collections/on-sale BONUS postcard set, featuring photos of Aphex Twin's old hand-etched Yamaha CS-5 synth (originally included with our 2020 edition of Solvent's sold-out "RDJCS5-ep"), will be included with every order over $20/€20, while supplies last!
  2. >>>are there plans to repress the other 3 eps?! Definitely we'll repress EP 2, although we have to get it re-cut since the pressing plant we used on that one went out of business. We still have copies of EP3 in stock (we have about 20 copies left still), so I don't see a repress of that one anytime soon (if ever): https://suction.shop/collections/rx-101 If there's enough demand for EP4 down the line then we'll repress it, but at the moment I don't think there is a lot of demand for that one.
  3. Thanks for the support guy! Hearts Utd. (suction052) + a repress of EP1 (suction032) went up for pre-order today. Colour-vinyl editions are seriously flying, so I'd def advise ordering ASAP if you want one... -> BANDCAMP: http://rx-101.bandcamp.com -> SUCTION SHOP CANADA: https://suction.shop -> SUCTION SHOP EU: https://suction-eu.shop
  4. No problem... but just to be clear, you suggested that "Suction" has missed release dates before, and I just need to point out that the issues you're experiencing have nothing to do with Suction. We ship our releases out to distributors and from that point on, how and when it gets to shops etc is totally beyond our control. Sometimes our distributor doesn't actually place the order until days after, or even a week sometimes, after the release date, despite me following up and reminding. They are dealing with A LOT of new records coming out all the time, so it happens. Point is, this is all stuff that's out of our control. Please keep that in mind! If you want to avoid this in the future for Suction releases, buy directly from us instead!

  5. It has nothing to do with Suction. Many people who ordered from us directly received their CD on/near/before the release date. If there are delays in getting to shops, that is to do with distributors, when the shop placed their order, etc. Also please note that you did not order it over a month ago. You pre-ordered it. The release date was Feb 14 so it was never set to ship before then.
  6. Thanks for posting the Shop links... also wanted to mention, that I've also put the digital, as well as limited copies of the vinyl/CD, up on Bandcamp, since so many people seem to prefer it: suctionrecords.bandcamp.com We've also repressed 300 copies of "Dopamine" on vinyl, and those are available there too. I would really prefer to eventually migrate all of our physical merch sales to the above Suction Shop links, so if you don't mind buying from there instead, I appreciate it, and I am 100% willing to send you a Bandcamp download code. I'll just do that manually until I can figure out how to do it automatically. Same goes for any of you who already ordered via Suction Shop -- give me a week or so, and I'll be in touch with all of you who ordered through there to send you a Bandcamp download code. Note, if you are planning to buy the bone-white vinyl from Bleep, last I heard they were down to less than 10 copies (of 200 pressed)... Since adding it to Bandcamp this morning, we've started selling through the olive-green vinyl pretty fast as well. We pressed 300 of those though, so I expect them to last for a little while at least. Here's a pic of the olive-green:
  7. I understand the convenience of that, but the answer is no. Bandcamp is a fantastic platform for digital downloads, but for merch, it is not so ideal for sellers. The way they handle shipping rates is archaic and makes it impossible to set accurate shipping rates. With the new webshop that we're opening, via Shopify, I hope to be able to offer cheaper shipping rates. I may look into a way of giving away Bandcamp download codes with releases in the future, but for now this won't be an option. On our Shopify, physical merch will come with a bundled 320 MP3 download. NOTE: If any of you are inspired enough, because you want for our releases to include Bandcamp download, I would absolutely welcome the research/solution as to how to automatically supply a unique Bandcamp download code with purchase. I did spend a little bit of time looking into this, but I am swamped at the moment setting up the shop in general, and I don't have time to scroll through pages and pages of Shopify forum discussions and links to Shopify plug-ins that may work. If someone can find me a clear solution for how to do this, I would definitely be willing to do it! ..... If you want to help me out with this, please send me an email info @ suctionrecords.com ------- FREE copy of bone-white or olive-green vinyl edition of this new RX-101 2LP for anyone who can steer me to the solution.
  8. We'll no longer be using Bandcamp for physical merch orders. Digital will be available from Bandcamp, but our physical copies will be available through our about-to-launch webshop, with shipping from either Canada or Poland. Direct orders through our shop will also include digital downloads. Hoping to have the new webshop launched very soon - either later (Tues Jan 21) today or tomorrow. The bone-white-vinyl is Bleep exclusive. We'll have our own exclusive colour-vinyl edition as well: army-green.
  9. Bleep.com exclusive! We're giving Bleep first crack on pre-orders for the new RX-101 2LP, "Serenity" - release date Feb.14. Bleep's EXCLUSIVE bone-white-vinyl edition is limited to 200 copies. Act fast! https://bleep.com/release/167546-rx-101-serenity
  10. RX-101 "Serenity" (suction050 2LP/CD/digital). Release date 01/24/2020 - PRE-ORDER link soon.... https://soundcloud.com/suction-records/rx-101-serenity Don't let the title fool you - Suction Records' latest dive into Rx-101's 1997-1999 tape archive is not all lush, serene melodies. On "Serenity," scorched, crunchy, jackhammer beats combine with emotional, plaintive pads, delivering a classic set of vintage-Rephlex-style bliss, a la AFX, Caustic Window, and Cylob.
  11. an update - doesn't look likely that it'll be out until November at the earliest
