Illumination’s “The Way Out Is The Way” is now available on Optimo Trax’ “Drum Attack EP (Lost weapons from the 1990’s”). This vinyl re-issue was originally planned for release in October 2014, but was delayed until now due to problems with manufacturing (not so surprising, as it’s pretty bass-heavy, though we’re yet to hear the full details from Optimo HQ). In any way you can now finally pick it up through your favourite vinyl store, like Clone Records. There’s also a nice review of the 12″ over at Juno Plus. Illumination was a collaboration project consisting of Per Martinsen and Nicholas Sillitoe, who also did a string of remixes under their Chilluminati guise in the late nineties/early noughties.
My ‘In love we fall EP’ is now also available through most digital outlets for downloads and streaming, but be sure to also secure a copy of the 12″ vinyl edition before it sells out!
My new EP of house tracks is now available on 12″ vinyl through Clone Distribution, and will probably be hitting your local record shop in less than a week’s time. Make sure to go order your copy now!
The third track in the ‘Norwegische Künstler Verpisst Euch’ series is now available exclusively through my Bandcamp page.
The mighty Optimo will release an old goldie from our Illumination catalogue on their new “Drum Attack” EP of “secret DJ-weapons”. The track in question is “The way out is the way”, which is taken from the B-Side of a 10inch single initially released through Music Man Records back in 1998. Quite a different affair than the more deep and housey material we released under the Illumination moniker, the tune had Optimo’s JD Twitch in for a surprise when he received the master and realized the original vinyl was intended to be played on 33rpm, and not 45rpm as he’d been doing all this time. The release date is set to late October 2014, and you can preview the EP in the player above. There’s also some more info on the release over at Juno Plus.
Here’s the second track in the new series “Norwegische Künstler Verpisst Euch”. Available exclusively through Bandcamp.
The new remix 12″ including mixes from Optimo’s JD Twitch and Full Pupp’s Blackbelt Andersen is now available on vinyl through Clone Distribution. The digital version will only be available from July 7th, but as you read this it probably means you’re genuinely interested in my stuff and can head over to my Bandcamp page and get high quality files as an earlybird special offer.
I’ll be heading over to London in the beginning of next month for the screening of Kostya Shamshin’s “Ghost Radio Hunter” at the National Portrait Gallery on Friday April 4th, followed by a DJ-gig/album launch at Big Chill House later on the same night. Both events are part of Noise of Art’s month of events celebrating 100 years of live electronic music, which you can read more about here.
The new album compilation ‘Everything is connected is out today. Get it from your favourite online store, or from my Bandcamp page. Tracklist and preview in the player above.
December 21st will see the release of my album CYCLS, which is a collection of tracks I initially put up on my Bandcamp page last year as an ‘Advent Calendar’ for the 2012 ‘Mayan End Date’. The album is called CYCLS to celebrate the way I believe the concept of time actually works – moving in cycles for all of eternity, just like great vinyl records. It also marks the time to bury every concept of ‘doomsday’, which I believe has been created for the sole purpose of inciting fear in, and thereby controlling people. So enough of that.
I will also release another album on January 23rd 2014. This one is called ‘Everything is connected’, and will be a compilation of an EP series by the same name I did over the last couple of years, plus some bonus tracks.
Both these albums will be available as digital albums and on CD through Love OD Communications, and there are also plans to press selected tracks on vinyl. Watch this space for updates.
