I have a record

20141106_152014

As you can see, the 12″ has arrived.

So, you want to acquire a copy? Here are your current options:

  • You can get the digital version via bandcamp
  • You can order the vinyl direct from me (either via bandcamp or email glacialcommunications@gmail.com for direct paypal details and/or local pickup and avoid the middleman if we’ve met before)
  • You can order direct from Savage Quality. Distributors should probably contact Savage Quality rather than me- they have way more copies than I do.
  • You can buy it in person at the release party.   I’ll take cash and credit cards.
  • You can buy it at Bent Crayon right now while it remains in stock. I expect some other stores/distros to have it soon. If you get one from a store and want a download code, send me a picture of your copy or something.
  • Additional stores/distros (that I know of):

Also, you should totally go to the release party on November 15th- I promise it’ll be a good time. IN TRAINING has been a great series of events so far, and it looks like they’re going to get even better.

Soon…

I am now in possession of some test pressings for my forthcoming 12″ on Savage Quality Records. Actual pressing has commenced, and they’ll be available soon.
Details:
Catalog Number: SQ-008 (download version and some physical copies will simultaneously be GLAC-33, because vinyl.)
Tracks A1-B3 written in Cleveland Ohio, and portions of B1 in LaGrange Indiana at the AHMW synth gathering.
Recorded & Mixed January-July 2014 in Cleveland Ohio
Vinyl Mastered & Cut by MJR at Prairie Cat Mastering in Belvedere Illinois
Record pressing by Gotta Groove Records in Cleveland Ohio
Physical sales will be handled by various distributors and retailers, as well as direct from Savage Quality and Glacial Communications.
Download version will be handled via Glacial Communications. It will have a few bonus tracks 🙂

A new series and sublabel

Alright, time to announce some more new things- a recurring series of EPs known as Glacial Trax, and a sublabel called neoelectro.org.

Glacial Trax – After releasing the Glacial Trax EP from Greenlander last week, I kind of had the idea to turn the concept into a recurring (monthly?) series of downloadable EPs. I’m still thinking through some aspects (will all track titles be strictly anonymous and incrementing from the first in the series? How many will there be total? etc.), but it’s going to happen. EPs will have somewhere between 2 and 5 tracks, should generally be of a dancefloor-oriented nature, and kind of fit in with the Glacial Communications aesthetic, whatever that is. Get in touch if you’re interested.

neoelectro.org – I registered this domain several years ago with the intention of it being some kind of community-based netlabel for the Northeast Ohio area. It never quite got off the ground, and eventually was overtaken by spammers, so I killed it. A month or so ago I got the notion to reactivate it as an Electro sub-label to Glacial Communications. As of right now, the URL is still pointing at the GC bandcamp page, but whenever something is released, that will be fixed… I’m looking for stuff to put out on it, so again, get in touch if you’re interested.

January->July combo update

It’s been a crazy few months. Since the last post, I’ve done the following:

Next up is a DJ set at Duck Island on July 21st, and a three-hour “Dance Party” (whatever that entails) at Voice of the Valley VI in West Virginia.

Snow Crash

This past weekend, I performed at the Snow Crash event in Lafayette, Indiana. A most pleasant time. I did a 94 minute continuous set, which puts it in second in terms of length, behind my two hour MOCA set last March.

I did manage to remember to bring a recording device and get an MP3 of my set direct from my mixer. For the time being, you can grab it from here.

I think I’ll be taking a short break from lengthy performances, as I’m working on some more new tracks, and trying to wrap my head around using an Akai MPC1000 as my live sequencer in place of the Roland MC808 I’ve been using since 2011. I think the next “large-scale” outing will be the 4NPLCY CLUBNACHT on March 1st. There will also be a short performance at the Radio-themed Noise Lunch at Now That’s Class on February 2nd.
