New releases >>> Bass Clef and Some truths

Posted in Bass Clef with tags , on October 20, 2013 by magicanddreams

Dear friends,

well it’s been a long time coming, but our two new releases are ready to go!

First up is a new tape and digital e.p. from Bass Clef.

yeah it’s 60 minutes long but it’s an e.p. rather than an LP.

Because I say so, that’s why.

BASS CLEF

‘acid tracts ep’

acid tracts in a pile

It’s a limited edition of 94 copies. Strictly one per customer.

The cassettes were pro-duped onto fluorescent orange shells. The tracks were mastered at Subsequent Mastering who I can thoroughly recommend, he did a great job for a very reasonable price.

All the covers were painstakingly assembled by our own fair hands here at MAGIC + DREAMS. They are all different. The inlays are all different too. This took absolutely ages and I would have to be insane to go through it all again.

MAD023 second batch horiz

MAD023 all the spines

You can hear the lead track ‘Strings Of Death’ here

The tape comes with a download code for a complete set of 320 mp3s.

Or if you would like just the digital you can get it from our new bandcamp page

£8 if you’re in the UK

£9 if you’re in europe

£10 for those of you on one of the other fine continents of this world…

PRICES INCLUDE SHIPPING

ok, what’s next?

SOME TRUTHS

‘low point X’

The last in the series of cassette releases for M+D, from my modular synth alter ego.

Next year the project will happily move to vinyl for a batch of releases on various exciting labels.

So here’s one last tape. And hopefully the best one!

MAD032 tapeshot

You can listen to lead track ‘Some truths #37′ here.

If you have the full set of four you can now enjoy reading my descent in to further madness…

Some truths full set

If you would like the digital version you can get it here.

The tape comes with a download code for a full set of 320 mp3s, and was pro-duped in a white shell in a white-backed case, with extensive inlay notes as always.

£8 if you’re in the UK

£9 if you’re in europe

£10 for those of you on one of the other fine continents of this world…

PRICES INCLUDE SHIPPING

HOW TO ORDER

Ok so these are both quite limited. If you are interested please email us at:

magicanddreamsmusic (at) gmail dot com

When we get your payment we will send you a link to the mp3s and get your items in the post.

Also why not have a look around the SHOP? I’ve got a few bits of Bass Clef stock for sale.

Also we still have copies of the Inner Space Break Free tape.

Thanks!

Possibly you saw it when it went up the other month, but I did a mix for Dummy mag.

I kind of thought it was obvious, but perhaps not: all of the tracks are by me.

They’re all unreleased, forthcoming, or re-edits of tracks from ‘Reeling Skullways’.

I did not paint it to be understood

“I did not paint it to be understood, but I wished to show what such a scene was like; I got the sailors to lash me to the mast to observe it; I was lashed for four hours, and I did not expect to escape, but I felt bound to record it if I did”

BACK TO SCHOOL

Dear friends,

…it may have been a little quiet round these parts, but that’s mostly because noses have been on grindstones!

There’s a whole bunch of stuff coming up for me and M+D -

gigs, releases, remixes….

so, eyes down for a full house and here we go:

::

MINOTAUR SHOCK

My old mucker David Edwards has a great new album out. I done a remix:

LISTEN HERE COS SOUNDCLOUD PLAYERS WON’T EMBED ANYMORE

Also he’ll be coming up on the overdue return of WYFW? dropping soon…

::

T-WOC / BELFAST

I’ll be returning to the wonderful city of Belfast on the 29th of September, to play a Bass Clef set.

LISTEN HERE COS SOUNDCLOUD PLAYERS WON’T EMBED ANYMORE

It’s the launch party for this 10″ on Rudimentary Records, for which I also did a remix. It’s hands-down the dubbiest thing I’ve ever released!
There’s only 200 copies so don’t hang about…

::

NEW BASS CLEF 12″

Due in the next couple of weeks, I’ll be releasing a two track 12″ on great Bristol label Idle Hands, it features “Dawn Chorus Pedal”, and “You Don’t Know Don’t Know You”

Once more mastered at Optimum, they’ve done a fabulous job as always of getting my crazy tape recordings onto vinyl. It sounds great! Clips to follow…

::

SOME TRUTHS LIVE, SUPPORTING HIEROGLYPHIC BEING!

Indeed, come and watch me as nervous as I’ll ever be, honoured to play before one of my absolute heroes, at the Elgar Rooms in the Albert Hall on October the 10th

::

EKOCLEF AND BASS CLEF LIVE

A few short days later, I’ll happily be reuniting with Ekoplekz and we’ll be playing a brand new set together at the Purcell Rooms, before moving into the QEH itself to play a Bass Clef set (which will be a special one – watch this space for details).

Also appearing are the mighty Raime, and Mount Kimbie!

::

UNSOUND

And at the end of october I’l be playing not once, but twice, at Unsound in Krakow : )

::

JESUS, IS THAT IT?

No sorry, there’s still more to come. Hopefully at least two more pieces of Bass Clef vinyl to come before the year is out, a Some Truths LP, plus remixes of Pollyn and Hello Skinny still to drop.

::

LET ME GO HOME NOW PLEASE

Nope. There’s still news of a new batch of MAGIC + DREAMS releases before the year is out – okay I’ll tell you later…
