Title: Rerex
Format: Triple LP
Label: Aguirre
Country: Belgium
Price: $43.00
"Aguirre Records present a reissue and the first vinyl release of James Ferraros Rerex, originally released in 2009. James Ferraro is an experimental musician, composer and virtual atmospherist born in Bronx, New York. Ferraro has released material under a wide array of aliases, and was a member of the Californian two-piece avant-garde project The Skaters. His album Far Side Virtual (2011) was chosen as "Album of the Year" by the UKs Wire Magazine in 2011. Ferraro has been producing small runs of releases on cassette, CD-R, and VHS with a wide variety of styles all representing different dreams of a demonic mind tower spanning from freak flesh bodybuilder atmospheres to ambient modern world/psych. First on New Age Tapes and later on MuscleWork Inc., self-run cassette/CD-R labels primarily used for releasing small runs of his solo work. In the summer of 2009, Ferraro composed and recorded the "Summer Headrush Series" in Antwerp, Belgium for Musclework Inc. The series is loosely based on visualizations that came to mind while receiving self-induced hypocapnia (aka, choking oneself) or as its commonly called "free fall". The albums being representatives of the free fall head space. Other albums from the Headrush Series are: Body Fusion 1 and 2, iAsia, Wild World, Son of Dracula and Hacker Track. The Rerex album is vintage hypnagogic Ferraro and with its length (almost three hours), it may be considered a "magnum opus" of his. Using cheap casio keyboards, loops, effects and difficult to trace samples, Ferraro creates a slightly haunting but oh-so beautiful musical world. Please use headphones for a dynamic HD headphone experience. Artwork by James Ferraro. Mastered and lacquer cut by Christoph Grote-Beverborg at Dubplates & Mastering. Lay-out by Jeroen Wille. Edition of 500." - Aguirre.

Title: Citrac
Format: Double LP
Label: Arbor
Country: USA
Price: $26.00
"The Citrac collection presents one of James Ferraros most cinematic visions; showing his recent mode of soundworld creation in top form. By shying away from pure musical creation and opting towards the organic birth of sonic universes, James finds a new way to tell a story. Evoking vastly imaginative imagery, this 80+ minute suite spanning two LPs, contains the previously released Postremo Techno Mundus Symposium, excerpts and alternative edits from Liquid Metals Alternative Soundtrack to Digital Overdrive, and the all new Digital Tribe. Presenting deep-nightmarish atmospheres of surveillance and captivity on through the rush of the open road; the hypnotic, lo-fi result is one that could only come from Ferraros alien mind, eternally stuck in a 1980s vision of an impossibly archaic future. In an edition of 400 double LPs with full color printed inner-sleeves in pro-printed black and white cardboard sleeves and printed labels by James." - Arbor

Title: Far Side Virtual
Format: LP
Label: Hippos In Tanks
Country: USA
Price: $21.00
"James Ferraro paints a 21st century still life on his debut album for Hippos In Tanks. The record is called Far Side Virtual. Each song, a melodious reflection of the moment now, comes shrink-wrapped in HD fidelity as glossy as a 2012 Toyota Prius. Ferraros muse is some enigmatic modern metropolis, where the streets are as slick as i-Pads, and where the symphonies ring with Macbook message alerts. Through the steam rising from our latte mocha chinos, he invites us to gaze out at the dreamy disorientation of our digital lives. Imagine a Darius Milhuad-guided tour of 5th Avenue. Imagine a Whole Foods bakery that sells only cakes emblazoned with frosting replicas of Camille Pissarros Haying at Eragny. These are the surreal utopias Ferraro brings to life with sixteen swirly-pop concoctions sure to sell out at the candy stores. So slip in your ear buds, and welcome to Far Side Virtual." - Hippos In Tanks.

Title: Clear
Format: LP
Label: Holy Mountain
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"Clear and Discovery were origianlly released as two companion CDRs by JAMES FERRARO (of the whole SKATERS / LAMBORGHINI CRYSTAL / 90120 / SPLASH / NIRVANA axis) and comprise the August 1974 (Taj-Mahal Travellers) of his discography. Both albums contain absolutely beautiful whirling hall-of-knives-style synth drone that makes one want to reference Klaus Schulze or Bobby Beausoleil. Clear bursts with flam beats and a cluster of melodies muffled like a calliope wrapped in a soggy tarp, while Discovery is comparable to Daft Punks album of the same name but played in reverse at 16 rpm through a boombox in a boiler room. These two records contain the sounds of pulling out with tapping beats of fluid dropped on a soft convertible top (open), much like those fictitious Giorgio Moroder songs for the upcoming Olympics in Atlantis or a reworking of that award-winning song from Revenge of the Nerds-or is it "Wonderwall"-into a theme for a future ski jump at the Great Pyramids. Are you ready for the lizard people to compete? Now available as mastered vinyl LPs with a digital download." - Holy Mountain

Title: Rapture Adrenaline
Format: DVD
Label: Hundebiss
Country: Italy
Price: $24.00
"Originally released on a limited critically acclaimed VHS edition, this succulent reissue presents an exclusive extra, Welcome To Candyland, an interview with the author and, at the same time, an exciting voyage through some cult virtual-hyper-reality-simulacro. The OJ chase, Hollywood forever cemetery, Dr. Phil are just some ingredients of this delicious visual trippy cake. The movie Rapture Adrenaline is an educational mixtape program, a cyber marine combat training video designed through primitive editing techniques. Operating mythological transformations of popular movie iconography, it reaches the merging point of the magical and the political." -Hundebiss

Title: K2-Chameleon Ballet
Format: LP
Label: Olde English Spelling Bee
Country: USA
Price: $17.00
"In Chameleon Ballet I wanted to create a work of magic that simulates a dream atmosphere of post industrial landscapes, with the waking memory of a romantic alien encounter occurring in the dream. Dedicated to the mystery of night and the magic of dreams -- James Ferraro. Debut limited edition album by this new sci-fi synth project of James Ferraro of The Skaters et al, with 1980s minimal wave moves bisected by the kinda keyboard patterns you mightve found on an Edgar Froese solo album or post-Body Love Klaus Schulze then exploded with barbarous invocations, syruped-vocals and some black drone atmospherics. Or, as the cover art suggests, urban landscapes as visioned by showroom dummies illuminated under 3 am neon. Another killer. -- David Keenan. Remastered and expanded version of the CD-R release on New Age Discs -- this has an additional previously unreleased track. Limited edition of 425 copies. Black & white printed covers." -Olde English Spelling Bee

"Remastered reissue of an obscure tape that came out in a Europe-only edition in late 2008 on Dreamtime Taped Sounds - the label run by Lieven Martens of Dolphins Into The Future.

The back cover represents the same idea but this one exhibits the inner head perspective of the "LIQUID ENERGY ENHANCED GLADIATOR IN THE DIGITAL COLOSSEUM A.G.* *After Google " - James Ferraro.

Title: Multitopia
Format: LP
Label: Olde English Spelling Bee
Country: USA
Price: $17.00
"New album from James Ferraro of The Skaters/Lamborghini Crystal et al, the first run ever presented under his own name. Multitopia is our reality system, James writes in the liner notes. A post 9/11 reality technology in between the frames of data reception. A cross wire into new head and necessary evolution upon the impact of the towers. It feels like a major work from James, the first fully-conceived album to go beyond his initial brain-fried 1980s nightmare culture documentation, reconciling both dystopian and utopian mindsets in a vision of Pan as Multitopia. Body modification, the blurring of sexual persona (via cracked images of James on the back with a modified pair of breasts chilling next to an arcade game) and cyborg intelligences are all recurrent tropes in James work but here he explodes them all, with some of the most aggressively nuanced keyboard and drum work of his entire career, kicking off with a full kit sound that sits somewhere between industrial steel drums and chaos pads then building to an evocative peak that then dissolves into wave after wave of fluxing keyboard drone and oddly looped vocal fragments. The gravity of the music is truly omnivorous, devouring drone, punk, new wave, industrial and minimal synth modes and spitting them back out as intensely detailed black and white visions of the future now. James somehow manages to interweave vacuous TV announcements and cheap anchor man quips alongside the lucid, microtone rich keyboard work, situating the whole deal in a virtual, godless netherworld with each track a further descent into hell. It is both beautiful and horrifying. A major work from James - no one is doing anything remotely like him. Highly recommended. -- David Keenan. Remastered version of the CD-R release on New Age Discs. Limited edition of 425 copies. Color printed covers. Dedicated to Zac Davis." -Olde English Spelling Bee
