Artist: FORD & LOPATIN
Title: Emergency Room
Format: Picture Disc LP
Label: Software
Country: USA
Price: $20.00
"A few new developments for electronic production duo Games. The pair comprised of Oneohtrix Point Nevers Daniel Lopatin and Tiger Citys Joel Ford are no longer calling themselves Games -- instead, they now go by the very Italo disco-sounding Ford & Lopatin. First order of business for F&L: running a new offshoot of Brooklyn label Mexican Summer, appropriately titled Software." -- Cribbing from Pitchfork. "To precede the release of Channel Pressure, Ford & Lopatin will be releasing an Emergency Room 12", which features the album track Emergency Room along with a remix by Gavin Russom and a dub mix by The Bug. The limited 12" (1200 copies) will have four variations of x-ray artwork. A beautiful, essential and strictly limited piece." -Software

Artist: HECKER & DANIEL LOPATIN, TIM
Title: Instrumental Tourist
Format: Double LP
Label: Software
Country: USA
Price: $24.00
"The first chapter of SSTUDIOS (Software Studio Series), a new venture in the Software Recording Co.s expanding catalog. SSTUDIOS invites artists in the field of electronic music to create collaborative works of quality and vision. With a deliberate focus on source material of a synthetic and mimetic nature, Hecker and Lopatin designed a sound palette from the acoustic resonance of digitally-sourced instruments of the world. The intrepid cowboy sound-voyager was inverted, forging a synthesis with the ecstatic other; digested exotic instrumentation fuel the tepid journeys of a sampler tourist. Instead of leaning heavily on the proverbial Malian time signatures sublime truth, Instrumental Tourist pictures the synthetic veneer of exoticism as pushed air captured by oscillating ribbons. The studio meetings between Hecker and Lopatin were conducted to mimic the tropes and techniques of jazz-based improvisation, with little preparation prior. In an era where electronic production can produce the totalities of symphonic effect, and solo sound composition is easier than ever, the necessity of collaborative work is questioned. Could their own respective artistic pursuits be neatly compiled and encapsulated by the very sound bank paradigm that theyve exploited? Why work together at all? Instrumental Tourist finds two artists transcending their respective visions by agreeing to a new language, one which verbalizes their mutual infatuations and apprehensions with the systems theyve both built and are buried by." - Software, Housed in a deluxe gatefold sleeve; hand-numbered edition of 2000; includes download code.

Artist: KANAGA, DAVID
Title: Dyad Ogst
Format: LP
Label: Software
Country: USA
Price: $23.00
"Limited vinyl edition in a deluxe jacket. Includes digital download code. In the videogame Dyad, a mysterious, micro organic particle zips through a Pollock-like tunnel that intensifies in shape, color and feel as players advance through the game. But like Dyads predecessors, games aiming to be all-out sensory assaults, the synapse-frying player experience is inherently tied to the games extraordinary soundtrack. Designed and produced by Oakland based composer David Kanaga, the soundtrack to Dyad will be made widely available for the first time by Software Recording Co. David Kanagas maximalist score for Dyad fuses a breakneck array of sound events to rich, ambient segues of layered harmonies and melodic color. Like the ceaseless forward movement of the game itself, where the protagonist particle encounters cascades of oncoming enemies, the elements of the music also shift in concert with the events of the game. There are drops in octaves according to speed of the particle, and synced musical events signaling an array of hallucinatory actions on screen. Textures morph, pitches drift, events quantize and de-quantize in meditative flows that sustain repose one moment, and sonic assaults the next. Kanaga casts a wide net stylistically; a kaleidoscope of influences ranging from acid-fried happy hardcore, to jungle and drum-n-bass rhythms to re-applied fragments of Top 40 production tropes, not to mention more than several sublime passages of hazy, cosmic coloring. Importantly, even with this stylistic range, the soundtrack never veers from referencing the particular intensities of the events in play. The frenetic music shifts in accordance with the games own digital psychedelia, becoming on its own a kind of virtual stand-in for the game itself." - Software.

Title: Replica
Format: LP
Label: Software
Country: USA
Price: $19.00
"Replica is an electronic song cycle based around audio procured from TV ad compilations. These sample-based meditations are as lyrical as they are ecological, featuring re-purposed ghost vocals which serve as narration for Lopatins signature amorphous, ambient passages. Lopatins Juno-60 is still prominent, but Returnals placid, synthetic surroundings are accelerated through darker, more unpredictable terrains via Lopatins use of samplers, analog filtering, tape-op, piano, plate reverb and sub-bass. The result is a heightened sense of music as part and parcel of an overall sonic terrain." -Software.

Title: Rifts
Format: 5 LP Box Set
Label: Software
Country: USA
Price: $70.00
"Rifts compiles Oneohtrix Point Nevers (aka Daniel Lopatin) first three full albums - Betrayed in the Octagon, Zones Without People, and Russian Mind - alongside a crop of rare and out-of-print CDRs and cassette material in a deluxe, five LP vinyl box set. Rifts travels from the outside-in, beginning with the dark space sonatas ofOctagon, through the mechanized vistas of Zones Without People and completing itself with the haunting electronic animus of Russian Mind. This journey is underscored with a natural growth which sees Lopatin developing his unabashed worship of the polysynth as a free standing musical apparatus towards a fully realized OPN world of sound; at once incorporating synth prog, modern noise, early techno, drone, minimalism and computer music. With Rifts it is possible to zoom out on the OPN project and recognize Lopatin as both an auteur and alchemist; achieving a signature sound while drawing on a buried history of electronic music. The vinyl box set is a one-time edition of 1000 copies, each of the 5 LPs packaged in individual jackets and housed in a deluxe slipcase." - Software.

Title: Zones Without People
Format: LP
Label: Software
Country: USA
Price: $18.00
"Zones Without People was originally released on LP in two editions of 500 by Arbor, August 2009." Includes digital download code." "Arpeggios and sequencers play a key role in this amalgamation, as these forms of repetition create an attachment to a certain sentiment neither human nor machine. The record reflects this transformation; the A Side has distinct emotional flourishes, while the majority of the B Side seems to be overtaken in cold, mechanized melodies; attempts at teaching a machine to feel. The final track, Hyperdawn, is a solution to these two disparate modes of interpreting stimuli: a pure union of veins and patch cables." -Arbor.

Country: USA
Price: $16.00

The following to 2009s Sensação do Princípio on Stiltbreeze, Ectoplasm finds Tropa Macaca creating a quantic fantasy sound not unlike a cybernetically enhanced Taj Mahal Travellers interpreting a lost chapter of One Hundred Years of Solitude.

Artist: YEH, C. SPENCER/OKKYUNG LEE/LASSE MARHAUG
Title: Wake Up Awesome
Format: LP
Label: Software
Country: USA
Price: $23.00
"The second chapter of SStudios (Software Studio Series). SStudios is a new venture in the Software Recording Co.s expanding catalog that invites artists in the field of electronic music to create collaborative works of quality and vision. Inspired by the historical intersections of live performance and studio post-production, Wake Up Awesome is a modern kind of fusion in technique as well as genre. At its core are three artists highly experienced with both instant and labored composition. Together, they found the studio generated improvisations were iteratively developed by each on their own. Passages of real-time improvisation duck and swerve into electro-concrete tangles of samples, edits and juxtaposition -- all youd want out of a world of mechanical possibility. If it sounds intentional on the record, it was. If Yeh and Marhaugs more electronic affinities in their respective practices place them as the producers, then Lees cello often leads the drive as a sort of soloist. The resulting conversation is genuinely both serious and iconoclastic. All three artists have a history of dialogue, but this is the first time theyve hung out for the record -- were very happy that they did. Limited numbered edition of 1,000. LP includes DL code." - Software.
