    Brexit :(

    Pretty telling how you equate being less than middle class (aka working class) with being a "non-nice thicko bigot"
  2. 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.
  3. 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 ☺️
  4. 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
  5. 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.
  6. Thanks pal!
  7. Cheers guys. I reckon after 10 years, I'm allowed one or two tracks with percussion, just this time 😁
  8. 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
  9. Thanks guys. Cassettes are due back this week I believe, so shipping on them should start soon!
  10. My new compilation double LP The Lower Lights, released by the lovely folks at Past Inside The Present. Available from https://pitp.bandcamp.com/album/the-lower-lights There's about 25 copies left of the vinyl at the time of posting. Also, a companion cassette of alt tracks, called Beneath The Lower Lights available at https://pitp.bandcamp.com/album/beneath-the-lower-lights on cassette tape/digital. Sorry I missed posting this earlier when more vinyl colour stock was available, but I figured better to post it now to give the watmm peeps a chance to grab the vinyl before it's gone. Cheers!

  12. Claustro was on the MAH show. Decent track, full on UK garage style (which might not be everyone's thing, but I like it) There's a radio rip of the full track on the Burial subreddit (probably best I don't link it here, but easy enough to find) and it should be on the BBC site soon too.
  13. Your best bet is to buy direct from the label (if you're in the USA) or from Juno if you're in Europe/ROTW. Juno distribute all the ASIP releases and in the case of my last album with them, it sold out directly with them and they didn't have the stock to distribute to all the other stores, meaning a lot of failed pre-orders/angry people. I think they pressed 600 copies with this one, so there should be plenty on release day, from both Juno and Bandcamp direct.
  14. "In 1986 iconic group The Future Sound of London released the UK Top 40 chart album Dead Cities, from which came a track Yage." FSOL = Timelords confirmed
  15. Out of interest, where did you get your tapes manufactured? We're thinking of releasing an ambient tape at some point and I'm keen to have the quality be as high as possible. I think tape is such a great format for ambient music, possibly better than vinyl actually. I've used a few companies over the year, from Tapeline to Mobineko. For this release, I used a manufacturer called https://www.bandcds.co.uk/cassettes/cassette-tape-duplication/ who seems to have done tapes for quite a few labels like Dream Catalogue. They have a rather generic company name, but they know their stuff and everything came back exactly how it was promised. I'll be using them again for future tapes, 100%.

I think tape is such a great format for ambient music, possibly better than vinyl actually. Don't want to derail but I can answer partially answer this, I dub tapes for my friends label and he does a lot of ambient releases. Depends on how much you want the tape to "color" the sound - there's playback quality and then there's the more subjective "sounds good" question and ambient on warmth of cassette falls more in that category than vinyl. Most tapes are type I, type II technically is a better choice as it doesn't roll off as much on the higher frequencies. Unfortunately stateside NAC ran out of type II. You might have to hunt around more for that. There's also Dolby sound reduction as an option, most don't mess with it but when it comes to stuff like ambient, classical, or dynamic non-percussive music it's a good option. A lot of fans will likely not utilize Dolby B on their decks or players but those who do will notice an improvement in quality. I've been doing it for awhile now on drone/ambient releases I dub. I also try to make the peaks about 2+ db or so on the VU meter. Not too much (gets too distorted) but a little is ideal. You can go a little higher with type II and even more with the rarer type IV. Anyway, this release sounds beautiful, you've been putting out a lot of wonderful music! Also 36, wanted to mention that your posts on FB about streaming, social media, and navigating the world of releasing music have been very insightful. Cheers. I do enjoy my little industry rants/ramblings on FB
