Nightmares and Dreamscapes Extended

Earlier on in the year I said one of my plans for this year was to re-release all the EP's I put out before Mechanical. The first re-release was the Mechanical : EP Collection, which I released a few months ago.

Next on the agenda is the re-release of Nightmares and Dreamscapes. This EP was quite popular when I released it, but I kept on getting a similar request from people. That request was to make some longer extended edits of the tracks. Well, here you go :-) The re-release will contain the original edits, plus a set of extended edits of the tracks. All the tracks have been mixed from scratch from the old multi-tracks and they have all been remastered. I finished most of the edits a while ago, but I wanted to sit on them and have 1 final mixing session with fresh ears. For all intents and purposes these mix and masters are now completed. I just need to listen to them for a little longer to make sure I am totally happy with them.

As you can see in this post, I have got the artwork completed. The more alert amongst you and those who are a fan of music from Warp Records will see where I got my influence for the front cover. The cover artwork was inspired by Warps early Artificial Intelligence compilations from the early 1990's and also an early Black Dog record.

For the geeks amongst us, the landscapes were rendered in a program called Terragen. I spent ages trying to get the look and feel I was after, and I think all the hard work paid off. They have a Erie and retro feel to them :-)

I am hoping for this release to be fully out by the end of the year. The digital download version will come first and the CD version will follow shortly afterwards. Stay tuned..
