  1. 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:
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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
  5. 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.
  6. an update - doesn't look likely that it'll be out until November at the earliest
  7. Hi - new 2LP release out now on Suction Records - Translucent Blue vinyl limited to 200 copies. Fans of early Skam releases (Bola, Jega, etc) take note! https://lowfish.bandcamp.com/album/test-e Originally self-released as a tape under the artist name Pest(e), this 1996 collection of IDM and analog electronics is in fact the debut Lowfish album. Intended as a demo, it caught the attention of infamous UK label Skam —but after months of fruitless phone tag with the label, it was time for Gregory De Rocher to strike out on his own. Dropping his Pest(e) moniker in favour of Lowfish, in 1997 De Rocher co-founded Suction Records with like-minded producer Jason Amm, aka Solvent. While that Test(e) tape wasn’t technically a Suction Records release, it served as the impetus for starting the label, and we’ve always referred to it as catalog # suction000. Fans of mid/late-90s Artificial Intelligence classics from Autechre, Locust, Aphex Twin, u-Ziq, and Bola will recognize those hallmark sounds here, alongside traces of formative influence from Skinny Puppy, OMD, and Tangerine Dream. Recorded live to DAT with a bedroom full of analog classics (Roland Jupiter 6, TR-808, TR-606, Arp Odyssey, Korg MS-20), a sampler, and an arsenal of cheap FX units, the melodies here are lush and addictive, with layers of warm, lo-fi-ish (get it?) grit - often intentional, sometimes just a product of the process. Although largely on the armchair techno tip, the dense drum programming also nods to the burgeoning drum and bass movement, which De Rocher was firmly (but only briefly) obsessed with. For the first time on vinyl and rightfully re-branded as a Lowfish release, we’re thrilled to have Test(e) officially join the Suction Records catalog. cheers, Jason @ Suction Records
  8. 5 days left on our Indiegogo now... the remaining copies of the LP (we're pressing 1000) will be available to buy after the campaign is over, but if you're wanting to grab one of the limited white-vinyl copies, we're now down to 37 copies. It's definitely going to be sold out before the campaign ends... https://igg.me/at/electronicvoyager
  9. It's a vinyl-only release... licensing some of these tracks for digital was too complicated/expensive
  10. I literally heard Tycho playing inside a Starbucks at Disneyland, no jokes.
  11. Hi, Not a Suction Records release, but from my other production company/label Waveshaper Media.... Here's an LP which I compiled in support of our Bob Moog documentary Indiegogo campaign. It's available to pre-order there now. We're down to just over 100 copies of the white-vinyl edition (limited to 300)... http://igg.me/at/electronicvoyager Electronic Voyages: Early Moog recordings 1964-1969 (Waveshaper Media - WSM-03 vinyl LP) A1. Robert Arthur Moog - The Abominatron (1964) A2. Herbert Deutsch - Jazz Images, A Worksong And Blues (1967) A3. Joel Chadabe - Blues Mix (1966) B1. Lothar and the Hand People - Milkweed Love (1968) B2. Intersystems - Changing Colours (1968) B3. Ruth White - The Clock (1969) B4. Max Brand - Triptych (1969) B5. Paul Earls - Monday Music (1968) In support of their forthcoming Bob Moog documentary Electronic Voyager, Waveshaper Media have produced a compilation LP of Moog recordings from the 1960s. The first compilation of its kind, Electronic Voyages: Early Moog recordings 1964-1969 contains tracks by Robert Arthur Moog, Herbert Deutsch, Joel Chadabe, Lothar and the Hand People, Intersystems, Ruth White, Max Brand, and Paul Earls. All of these tracks, released here on vinyl in an edition of 1000 copies, have been scarcely heard and difficult to track down, with all but three of them previously unreleased on vinyl. Bypassing the Moog synthesizer’s backseat appearance on key pop recordings by the likes of the Beatles, the Doors, and the Beach Boys, Electronic Voyages aims to highlight the diverse approach of 1960s musicians and composers who adopted the Moog as their primary instrument; these recordings all feature the Moog synthesizer front a nd centre. Beginning with an “audio letter” (The Abominatron) from Bob Moog to his musician-muse Herbert Deutsch, demonstrating some of the first Moog synthesizer prototype’s capabilities, Electronic Voyages veers from avant-garde and electronic soundscapes, to psychedelic madness and summer-of-love pop. In the 1960s, the Moog synthesizer was a new, groundbreaking instrument, and its use was completely uncharted territory. The pioneering use of the Moog on all of these recordings sounds fresh today - you can sense the wide-eyed exploratory delight unfolding, and the disparate results range from endearingly naive (Lothar and the Hand People, Paul Earls) to downright eerie (Ruth White, Intersystems). The musicians and composers behind these Electronic Voyages may have been among the first to adopt Moog synthesizers, but the fact that they so readily found within them expressivity, heart, and a means to translate their wondrous sense of discovery, speaks far more to Bob Moog’s visionary invention and enduring legacy. Electronic Voyages: Early Moog recordings 1964-1969 is being offered for pre-order via Indiegogo. Now in the final stages of post-production, Electronic Voyager is raising finishing funds in a campaign set to launch on April 29, and will include the limited-to-300-copies white vinyl edition, sure to sell out in pre-order: http://igg.me/at/electronicvoyager
