In with the old

Lately, I've been spending a lot of time working on basslin.es, my recently-created record label. This new label is a replacement for my old label, which was called The Basement Productions, or TBP. I abandoned it after years of neglect resulted in losing the domain I once used for it. (It also didn't help that dozens of other people were also using indistinguishably similar names for their crappy independent record labels.)

With TBP dead, there was a reasonably significant volume of music which was orphaned, with no label to call home, so I decided to re-release a few of my favorite selections. Some of these are now available for download: The Green Hit by my first rap group, 5 oh Trees; Transparent Pleasancies and Spasm by the elusive str1ng; 23space by Juno Process; and my first compilation release, the venerable Firesign Revisited.

I won't claim that any of these are marvels of modern sound engineering or amazing works of sonic art, but a few of these tracks have aged remarkably well, and they hold a significant level of sentimental value to me and everyone who worked on them.

There should be a couple more re-releases within the next few weeks, as well as new releases of old material which has never been heard outside of the artists' studios. I also intend to release the debut Hundred Round Drum album by the end of the year; I only need a subwoofer so I can finish up the post-production process, then it's ready to go. Last, but not least, I'm told there's new str1ng material coming soon.

Anyway, if you're in the mood to listen to something different, head on over to basslin.es and check it out!
