Artist: DEAS, CAM
Title: Blind Chance
Format: LP
Label: Blackest Rainbow
Country: UK
Price: $21.00
"Fantastic new LP from Cam Deas, which was issued in a tiny run CDR for his recent Euro tour with Jack Allett earlier this year. This is a slightly different release from the previous LP and split LP with Spoono, essentially this one being a long improvised acoustic freak-out. Loose frequent and infrequent twangs to pure whirlwinds of aggressive string assaults and finger shredding plucking. This still retains Cams signature traditional playing somehow, especially the more intense heavier moments. A solid recording. Limited to 500 copies on heavyweight vinyl in pro-printed fold over covers with photography by Cam and printed labels. Pressed at the superb Record Industry in the Netherlands." - Blackest Rainbow.

Title: My Guitar Is Alive And Its Singing
Format: LP
Label: Blackest Rainbow
Country: UK
Price: $18.00
"I am very pleased to be releasing the debut LP from Sheffield-London-Brighton guitar master, Cam Deas. This follows his two long sold out CDRs on Blackest Rainbow, and proves once again that he is off the chain! OK, so theres always gonna be the immediate comparison to James Blackshaw, but the sound is different, more aggressive almost and raw... this guitar playing has an edge -- its deep and its powerful. The LP consists of three tracks, the A side is an epic, almost 20-minute piece entitled The Waters Of Kvaloya recorded by Ben Nash. The B sides and albums title track begins with almost a minute of near silent distant drone that develops with stomach-wrenching string twangs. The closing piece is As Spring Fell From The Leaves, which was originally issued on the For The Silver Waters, Sing! CDR last year on BR, but has been considered by people whove bought his releases and seen Cam live as possibly one of the best things he has composed. Total genius, with a real blissful, but eventually dark, vibe. This track definitely deserved to be put on wax. Mastered by Ben Nash. Limited to 300 copies." -Blackest Rainbow

Title: Time Exercises
Format: LP
Label: The Death Of Rave
Country: UK
Price: $23.00
"Time Exercises is a complex study in amorphous polymetric rhythms by UK artist Cam Deas for The Death of Rave. His first LP composed solely for modular synths and computer, Cams follow-up to the acclaimed String Studies (ALT 018LP, 2014) marks a headlong tilt from acoustic to electronic spheres with a staggering effect resulting from meticulous research and process. It sounds as advanced as Xenakis or Roland Kayn superstructures, with the rhythmic displacement of Fis or Autechre, and with a grasp of slippery, mind-bending timbral dissonance comparable to Coil and Rashad Becker records. Cams six Time Exercises form both a bold break with -- and an extension of -- the avant, folk, blues, and outernational traditions that hes worked to deconstruct and fluidly syncretize over the past decade. In the past four years hes stepped away from the guitar as a compositional tool, turning to electronic hardware in a focused effort to consolidate myriad tunings and meters with a precision that had previously eluded him in the acoustic sphere. Severed from the tactility and sentimentality of instrumental inflection, Cams disembodied music plays out a thrilling dramaturgy and syntax of alien dissonance and disorienting rhythmic resolution. Harmonic shapes as densely widescreen as those in Roland Kayns Cybernetic Music (1995) roil in unfathomable fever dream space, where massed batteries of synthetic percussion swarm like an orchestra of Cut Hands in viscous formation, and where polychromatic mentasm figures converge like cenobites laying siege to Rashad Beckers utopia. On Time Exercises Cam articulates a synthetic musical language that speaks to the listener in myriad, quantum tongues awaiting to be deciphered by keen ears everywhere. Its an outstanding record for lovers of forward-looking but deeply rooted electronic music. Master and cut by Matt Colton at Alchemy." - The Death Of Rave.
