This one has just hit the streets and is almost sold out already - grab your copy from one of the usual sellers ASAP! Limited edition of 200 copies, dubplate style. Each copy is individually engraved on a polyvinyl disc in real time 1:1 using a custom lathe, hence the higher unit price. The disc sounds fantastic as being cut in this way as opposed to 'pressed' like regular vinyl means the sound levels and bass are louder - it detonates off the turntable!

"The festival is a weird and wonderful place, with an incomparable style that makes for a big laugh. The music and scene is second to absolutely none within its genre. "
Just been hard at work in the studio mixing tracks for the indie rock band Arcade Fire! Their newest album 'Reflektor' reached #1 on the US & UK charts. Tuning into elements of transformation and Greek mythology (Orpheus & Eurydice) which inspired the band's work, the results have turned out very well indeed. Be on the lookout for Arcade Fire in 2014 at an immense festival or venue near you!
Some collaborations are simply written in the stars. Ryan Moore left The Legendary Pink Dots back in the year 2000 after a colossal contribution to the band over the space of 8 years on drums, bass guitar, electric guitar and even theremin. It was an impossible crater to fill, and the Dots didn't even try - Ryan's approach was absolutely unique. Nevertheless as The Dots adopted an airier psychedelic path and Ryan went dubterranean, the links were never broken. The idea of a reunion between The Dots' Edward Ka-Spel and Ryan Moore came up over curry at the former's house in London on a balmy summer night in 2012. Ryan sent a DVD packed with tunes, clips and outlines to Edward, and the latter extended and ultimately finished the journeys these sketches suggested. The result is a spacey rollercoaster ride which has elements of The Dots and Ryan's own Twilight Circus brand, yet deviates away from both to occupy it's own very strange land.

Press: "Dub revivalism at its most irie. Perhaps the best of all the millennial dub reggae revivalists, Twilight Circus Dub Sound System is in fact a one-man show: Ryan Moore, a goth refugee (Skinny Puppy, Legendary Pink Dots). Maybe his background gives his dub the perfect balance of analog mixology and noir mood; certainly, unpredictability is his trademark. 1999's Horsie, Moore's sixth release, catches him searching for a way to wed his rock background with his reggae interests. "Oats," for instance, seems to find the midpoint between Krautrock and dub. On "Romy," he works with three completely different themes: a Scientist-like space station under attack by electro-termites, a drifting Duane Eddy-ish guitar line, and a monster nyabinghi-tinged undercurrent. "Dance" floats "Guess Who's Coming to Dinner" into a liquid techno-style groove. "KIK"'s drive recalls classic Revolutionaries at Channel One, but is suspended in an ambient chamber of glockenspiels. On Horsie, Moore pushes the element of surprise measure for measure so, unlike so many rote digi-dubbers, his thunderous riddims and subtly formed sounds disintegrate nostalgia into a landmark in post-modern dub".
