  1. Oops, yep! I'm constantly mixing those two labels up, which is silly because they're a world apart in quality.
  2. The key take for me is that this Vinyl On Demand label didn't even think to ask the artists about reissuing it first. Just straight up used their previous contract (which is no doubt in perpetuity, like all major labels) and pressed it. And of course, the record stores don't even think to ask where it came from either. I doubt a penny of this will go to the artists. Sad for Tom and Mark. Imagine going through the effort of planning an anniversary edition of one of your most celebrated records, going through the effort of getting it remastered from DAT, organising remixes by other artists to expand it etc.. Then you find out, from literally nowhere, that another label with dubious rights to your record gets there first and does the absolute most basic job imaginable. Now most people who don't follow things closely will find the record repressed again in a few months time and think "uh wait, why should I buy this again?" Welcome to the world of major labels and licensing contracts I guess. Where there is money to be made, someone out there will want to screw you over.
  3. Available to pre-order on Past Inside The Present now. Release day is 31st January. https://pitp.bandcamp.com/album/stasis-sounds-for-long-distance-space-travel 12" vinyl (2 color variants) cassette tape and digital. Juno will have all the rest of the stock available from here which will be the cheapest solution for everyone outside the USA Some random packages will have some 1991 Space Ventures 'Space Shots’ trading cards included 😀
  4. The manufacturer I usually use says that lighter transparent colours (inc pure transparent clear) often have a 5db increased noise floor. Opaque colours, particularly darker ones like blue, brown etc.. They tend to sound closer to black in terms of overall quality. Honestly though, the whole vinyl manufacturing process is such a roll of the dice that anything can sound crap. White vinyl is without question the worst in my personal experience though. One single company (if you can even call it that) controls all the pellets in the world apparently. I think they have a patent on it, or something. Anyway, every single white vinyl I've ever had has sounded noticeably noisier than the rest. They look cool, but I try to avoid buying them now. Certainly no longer use them for my own music.
  5. Awesome, congrats! The box set looks fantastic, so best of luck with it Mr. Touched 👍

    Pretty telling how you equate being less than middle class (aka working class) with being a "non-nice thicko bigot"
  7. I keep a few back in case of damage/loss, so assuming they don't need to be used, I'll put them up for sale in a month or two.
  8. Dope. I used to browse this site religiously when I was about 16 or so. It was honestly very educational for me and I discovered a lot of great music from it. Feels quite weird to fast-forward 20 years and see my own music included as an example of an entire genre. Young me would be really proud of myself right about now ☺️
  9. C45 Dreamloops 3-4 is available now. Still a few tapes left at the time of posting, if you're quick https://3six.bandcamp.com/album/c45-dreamloops-3-4
  10. Cheers for the bump. The repress is available now from https://3six.bandcamp.com/album/c45-dreamloops-1-2 50 additional copies made, design/colors exactly the same as the first run. Dreamloops 3-4 coming soon too.
  11. Thanks pal!
  12. Cheers guys. I reckon after 10 years, I'm allowed one or two tracks with percussion, just this time 😁
  13. To be fair, he's always done music like this. Unite is pretty much a UK Garage tune using all the same techniques (pitched up vocal hook, skittling beats, etc) and is probably my favourite track of his I definitely understand the criticism with a lot of his last few records, which definitely gave off the unfinished sketch vibe you describe, but Claustro isn't like that at all. It's a tight, focused track and does what it sets out to do really well IMO. If you want classic Burial in a recent production, then you need to hear his Deep Summer remix, which is the best thing he's done since Kindred IMO
  14. Thanks guys. Cassettes are due back this week I believe, so shipping on them should start soon!
