Spatial 007 / 008 / 009
There's no merchandise this time around, like t-shirts or slipmats, as we figured we'd keep the price down with it being an expensive time of the year. There's a bundle on offer, which will help you save on postage costs if you plan on buying all three, and you'll also get a free die-cut brushed aluminium limited edition Spatial logo/text sticker. The pre-order window will be slightly longer this time, to give you plenty of time over the festive period. Shipping will be early February 2023.

Drum & Lace - Remixed
So after these dropped, the follow up to Original Soundtrack, another piano-infused ambient album by the name of Colours Of Absence came out on Auxiliary. This is out now on 2 x clear vinyl with a lovely picture sleeve.
Hot on the heels of that was my debut EP for Past Inside The Present, which feature another four slices of mid 90's atmospheric drum & bass nostalgia, much in the same vein as the Spatial releases. Eye Of The Storm is out now on vinyl, with the added coolness that each piece of vinyl is a different colour, and there's no telling which one you'll get, but it'll be unique exclusively to you.
Forthcoming is a remix for Joachim Spieth on an album of ambient remixes called Reshapes. This will be due out on Affin very soon.
Deep Space Mix 34

It's been a while since the last update post, and there's a lot to tell you about. So without further ado...
By now you've probably seen and heard all the news regarding my new label Spatial. The first three releases are available to pre-order now and are selling fast. If we repress these, it probably won't be for at least six months, so if you're planning on getting a copy, it would be wise to act fast. I'm not one to hype stuff up just for the sake of trying to get sales, but I'd hate for you to miss out if you're after the vinyl. Spatial 004, 005, and 006 have all been sent off to manufacturing, and we're expecting an October release with these.
This next batch of releases sees another two records by myself, and Volume Two of Utopian Society by Aural Imbalance. We've also finished a collaboration 12" which will be Spatial 007, but that probably won't be out until December/January 2023 at the earliest.
Back on the ambient tip, I've got a piano and string based album coming out very soon on A Strangely Isolated Place called 'Original Soundtrack'. This is looking like it'll be a July/August release all being well. More info nearer the time of release of course. In other immediate news, I'm happy to report there's a deep emotive techno track coming out on Semantica's 150th vinyl release compilation, called Draw The Line. My track is entitled 'Evocation' and will feature on the 3 x 12" vinyl release very soon.
The next two Auxiliary releases should be out in July. AUX025 is by myself, and features four remixes of AUX015 - Return Of The Emissary. AUX026 is Sciama's debut vinyl release for the label, and is something I'm super excited about. Four incredible compositions by Michael that you'll have heard a few of by now, in mixes by myself and on Blast Radio too.
Speaking of Blast Radio, Deep Space Mix 34 will drop tomorrow on the blog, after I debut it live on Blast. If you'd like to tune in for that, then I'll be live on Blast at 2pm PST / 10pm GMT. You can listen via the app on iOS/Android, or simply via the browser at http://blastradio.com/ASC
Finally, there's more music for Over/Shadow in the form of Black Rain/Sixth Sense, which will be OSH/15. There's another project for Over/Shadow too, which hopefully might see light of day this year, but I can't say too much about it just yet other than I'm REALLY excited about it. There's also a handful of other things that will hopefully be coming out this year, but I can't give any futher details at this point.

ASC - Spatial Launch Show 4th March 2022
I've launched a brand new label called Spatial, with the focus being on the mid 90's atmospheric drum & bass scene. The ethos will be strictly about breakbeats, luscious pads, heavy 808 bass, while keeping the tempo a sensible 160bpm.
