EKOCLEF ‘tapeswap’ now available

Dear friends,

I’m damn happy to announce this release, the album that Nick (Ekoplekz) and I (Bass Clef) made together.

We sent two tapes back and forth on journeys along the M4 (which is a journey I know very well, after all…) between our two studios and our two 4-track recorders and in the end we had ourselves an album. One that I am very proud of.

Have a listen to, or download and take for a spin, two tracks…

‘lens flare oh yeah’:

‘M4 endless’:

…and now on to the tapes themsleves.

The sleeves were made by the wonderful Print Project on their letterpress machine.

Text is printed with silver ink on a delicious high grade recycled black card.

As with all our tapes, it comes with a free download code to get all the tracks as 320 mp3s.

Available from us here, just email magicanddreamsmusic (at) gmail.com

£7 if you’re in the UK (includes FREE postage and packaging)

£8 if you’re in europe (includes FREE postage and packaging)

£9 for those of you on one of the other fine continents of this world… (includes FREE postage and packaging)


Here’s the video for ‘G major severn’:

As I’m sure you know, Nick’s had a stellar year, with albums for Punch Drunk, Mordant and Further.

But I reckon with this one we’re both outside of our comfort zones, whilst still keeping our separate sounds too, to make something wholy other.

Not exactly a middle ground inbetween, but more of a fourth-world parallel-universe motorway-services island in the sea.

OH, I’ve just got to take another look at the sleeve…it’s beautiful…
