New LP.

Whilst 2018 so far has been pretty uneventful as far as fresh, ‘finished’ compositions are concerned, I’ve actually been quite busy behind the scenes, attempting to broker various deals to make sure that my new album ‘Paracosmic’ sees the light of day to those folk who missed out on the crowdfunded campaign from late last year.

So, I’m pleased to announce that September 17 sees a general release on limited edition double gatefold vinyl, CD and digital download, on my own Lucid Recordings imprints.

Arabesque will be looking after European physical distribution, whilst 6 Degrees Music will be taking care of the digital side of things.

Triskele Music will be looking after promo for this release.

Ramblings.

Age.

I’ve just celebrated a significant birthday. Yes, 25 again.

Age is a funny one isn’t it. Some folks are more comfortable with the ageing process than others; I think I’m enjoying getting older, personally.

Either way, I’ve written a piece on it, which you can read here.


Slimming Down the Operation

I’ve written an article about hanging onto old gear, or, in my case, not hanging onto it. I’m starting to sell off some of my analogue synthesizers and replace them with a more ‘in the box’ approach.

This way, I’m saving space, and lessening the amount of physical possessions I’ve accumulated along the way. I’m keen to streamline the operation.

OK, so if you’re not into ‘owning’ music, then sure; click on the Spotify logo to listen to my catalogue. Every stream earns me the princely sum of 0.00429p, so if I bump into you in the pub, you can buy me a pint.

Here are a few random picks from my back catalogue…

I’ve finally got my act together and started making some short films to accompany some of the tracks on the new album.

alucidnation is all over YouTube already. It’s just that it’s other people that are posting tracks, so I guess I should be too.

Please go here and subscribe to my channel, as I intend to do more visual stuff to accompany my music when I get a bit more time; a precious commodity these days..!

Klassik Lounge Summer Vol.2.

Pleased to be asked to submit a track for this, the latest in the Klassik Radio CD series.

Old friend and alucidnation supporter DJ Nartak, who hails from the fair island of Lanzarote, got in touch and asked if I’d care to license one of the tracks from ‘Peace Odyssey’ for this double CD release.

I’ve had quite a few tracks licensed over the years to this series, so I was happy to get involved again.

Some choice cuts on this; there’s more information here, although you’ll need to be fluent in German to understand the website content.

What with the move away from downloads towards a streaming music model, I’ve gone and lowered my pricing. All downloads are now 25p.

All teaser tracks are on average 1m45s, which’ll hopefully give you a better idea of how each track develops and grows.

Scrapbook

The scrapbook is akin to a blog; I’ll post up information regarding new releases, events and other fascinating bits of information that will either blow your mind or bore you shitless.

If you move your eyeballs to the right, you’ll spot some links to some pearls of wisdom that I’ve already penned.
