Tim Cross

Every Place is Special

40 Copies

I am really delighted to be releasing the debut album from Tim Cross.As soon as I listened to this album I knew

straight away that this fitted the Sleep FUSE aesthetic perfectly.Tim describes himself as a "sound explorer and

arranger, voyaging through the aural universe".This is correct in every way.All of the nine tracks on this album

were improvised in one take, without multitracking.I must say there are some lovely sonic textures on this

really lovely ambient electronic sounding album.

This is a individually numbered edition of 40 copies.Comes in white card sleeves with paste on artwork and

reverse sticker.Original artwork by Marika Asgari.

Field Lines Cartographer

Magnetic Anomalies CD Reissue

40 Copies

I am super exited to announce my next release on Sleep FUSE.This is a cd reissue of the "Magnetic Anomalies"

 

debut album by Field Lines Cartographer. I have been an admirer of this artists work for sometime including

contributions to various A Year In The Country releases. Originally this album appeared on a now long gone

 

cassette in 2016 via Concrete Tapes. This artists use of analogue synths and field recordings seems to fit my

 

Sleep FUSE aesthetic beautifully. "Magnetic Anomalies" contains nine tracks of shimmering dark explorations

 

into unknown strange worlds.

Original artwork by Joe Maclaren.

This album gets my highest possible recommendation.

Tech Riders

Double Factorial

Limited edition 2 x 8cm mini cdr set

30 Copies

This Sleep FUSE release is more or less exactly the kind of thing I set up the label for in the first place.

 

Here we have "Double Factorial" by Tech Riders aka Sindre Bjerga and Frans de Waard.

Both of these artists have created interesting music in the electronic and drone scene for some time.

 

It has been a kind of very theraputic exercise creating this release. First of all it was cool working with

 

Sindre again (the last time was with Bjerga & Iverson on Reverb Worship sometime ago).

 

Secondly I wanted to work with Frans for sometime having enjoyed his work over previous projects

 

including Beequeen and Freiband. I was given the task of creating a look for the release with utilizing

 

the guys idea of using 1980's xerox artwork which they both loved. So.. each of these 30 boxes

 

is different with different applied paste on panels. They are presented in a 8cm x 8cm cardboard

 

box which contains two 8cm mini cdrs which have hand ink stamps in blue and pink plus a numbered

insert. Both discs contain sixteen minutes of music recorded at Worm, Rotterdam, the Netherlands

 

in february 26th-27th 2019. The music on these discs contains industrial experimental sounds,

 

musique concrete, cut up samples, noises and much more which make for a really absorbing listen.

Disciple Of Dagon

Demo

20 Copies

For my next release on Sleep FUSE may I introduce you to the very mysterious

Disciple Of Dagon. Originally issued on a very very limited and long sold out cassette.

The music on this EP touches base with both dark ambient and dungeon synth.

 

“I cannot think of the deep sea without shuddering at the nameless things that may at this very

 

moment be crawling and floundering on its slimy bed, worshiping their ancient stone idols

 

and carving their own detestable likenesses on submarine obelisks of water-soaked granite“.

The EP contains five tracks with around sixteen minutes of music. Recorded as a demo but actually

 

sounds amazingly good indeed, with its bubbling, gurgling ambient textures and themes.

This is a 8cm mini cdr which comes in a cardboard box. Each copy of the cd is individually

 

numbered and comes with an insert and a small selection of skull beads.

Coniferous Myst

Vast Mountain Castles

(30 Copies)

Sleep FUSE presents it next release via one of my favourite dungeon synth artists at the

moment.....Coniferous Myst. We started discussing working together during late 2019.

limited and sold out cassette in 2019. So...we have the Sleep FUSE version of

 

"Vast Mountain Castles". This is a 8cm mini cdr which comes in a cardboard box.

 

Each copy of the cd is individually numbered and comes with an insert and mini

 

portrait insert of Myst. The cd itself is a sixteen minute EP which contains six tracks.

premises in a far away land under complete and total secresy. This latest offering from

 

these four gentlemen in the form of "Requiem For Uriel". This is a dark and hauntingly

Linda & Steve Hillman

Ashtar

Expanded Reissue Cd 

50 Copies

Continuing my fascination with electronic music from yesteryear. Here we present the

 

2019 Sleep FUSE expanded reissue of "Ashtar" from Steve Hillman and his late wife Linda.

 

This really is a very relaxing and chilled out album to listen to. The underlying concept

 

that Linda and Steve had in mind was that the music would utilise various ancient

 

musical modes (Dorian, Phrygian, Lydian etc.) to create music that was by turns

 

mysterious, tranquil, meditative, atmospheric and to hopefully evoke vistas of long

 

forgotten civilisations.

Recording commenced on a humble four track portastudio in 1984 and the resultant album

 

"Ashtar" was released by Mirage in 1985. It was then released on Steve's Eye Tapes label in

 

1987 but with some melodic synth lines added to the title track and to “Silver Sleep” as it

 

was thought the original versions needed some extra textural sounds. “Reflections”, from

 

1985’s “Evocations” album, was also included with some new synth added.

 

The album was re-released again as a limited edition CD-R on the Auricle Music label in

 

2003. Since then it has remained unavailable but here it is again, this time in an expanded

 

form to include “Solace”, which was recorded during the sessions in 1984, plus the original

 

1985 Mirage release versions of the title track and “Silver Sleep”.

Check out "Ashtar" here : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KAYD1PsQTGE

This new Sleep FUSE reissue has been supervised by Steve himself. It comes with re-edited

 

artwork which was a painting by Linda from an original idea by Steve.

Available as a individually numbered edition of 50 copies with paste on photographic

 

panel artwork in opaque amaray style dvd cases.

Many thanks to the amazing Steve Hillman for allowing me to do this.

Carl Matthews

Iridescence

50 Copies 

For my first full length cd on Sleep FUSE i'm really excited to announce the reissue of Carl Matthews

 

"Iridescence" album. Carl was one of the early pioneers in the UK electronic/synthesist movement,

 

producing cassette releases via Mirage, Electronical Dreams and various compilations. "Iridescence"

 

was originally released in 1983 on Mirage on cassette only. This cassette is now mega hard to find.

 

This Sleep FUSE reissue cd has been given full consent from Carl himself and is the first time in

 

thirty six years that the album has been available. "Iridescence" contains seven superb tracks of

 

electronic music which has not dated at all. This album has many comparisons with 1980's era

 

Tangerine Dream, Peter Baumann and Klaus Schultze. All of this album was played and produced

 

by Carl in 1982/3. I have tried to keep the aestheic of this reissue as close to the original cassette

 

theme as possible by using the same cover image and track running order.This is an edition of 50

 

individually numbered copies. It comes in a opaque amaray sized dvd case.The cover insert has

 

paste on glossy photographic panel artwork.

Count Shirintsu

 

Welcome Back, Count Shirintsu

30 Copies

Sleep FUSE presents the debut recording from Count Shirintsu. This is again a venture

 

into dungeon synth territory which tells the tale of Count Shirintsu.

I am back

After 7 long years

My name’s Shirintsu, Count of Akashiga realm. I reigned for a long time, in peace and

 

prosperity, until a group of slimy opponents took the power and forced me into exile.

On a rainy day, they celebrated my funeral.They performed a great ceremony, great

 

as the play they made up. A dead body was shown to my people as mine, dressed in

 

luxurious and large clothes. A mask was placed on the face of a plebian farmer,

murdered just to replace my corpse.

But I was alive.

Uncrowned and dethroned, forced to leave my people and my reign by an alliance of

 

slimy opponents, invidious of the greatness of my figure and my kingdom. They took

 

everything from me in a moonless night. They slaughtered my family and enslaved my

 

servants, and harmless against the blades, I was forced in exile far from my land.

However, few people did not believe the great lie about my death. One of them,

 

Kyoden, understood the false act and showed it for what it was to a handful of faithful.

 

With them, I studied and planned my return and my ultimate vengeance. Now finally

 

my kingdom is restored, but I need your help to tell my story to the world.

Spread the word, the Count is back!

This is a six track 8cm cd EP which clocks in at around 21 minutes.If you liked the

 

Pendragon, Resinator and Ancient Boreal Forest releases you will love this one.
