BLACK TO COMM/AOSUKE - Split

"This vinyl-only split-LP release is a meeting of two of the most interesting bands coming out of Hamburg, Germany at this moment, both continuing the long tradition of both challenging and explorative music coming from this city in the last decades. From Krautrock to the origins of the so-called Neue Deutsche Welle from experimental sound artists to some of the finest Pop Ambient, Hamburg is regularly spitting out some of the most singular artists on this planet. Both Aosuke and Black To Comm have absorbed influences from all these sources (and a million others) while working towards their very own individual vision.

The two brand new tracks by Black To Comm are continuing the massive organ/voice drone alchemy of the last double-LP while refining and personalizing his sound, reaching new heights of blazing sonic mysticism.

Aosuke have decided to home-record their new material, continuing their loop-oriented, monotone yet highly melodic ambient journeys. Working with repetition and small abstractions, all instrumental "loops" are played by hand and recorded live without overdubs (one of the main principles of the guitar/electronics duo), creating surprisingly concrete dormant and somnambulistic soundscapes while fortunately completely lacking the washy and drowsy effects of most ambient music.

Black To Comm is the one-man project of Marc Richter who is the brain behind the Dekorder label as well. So far he has released two albums on his own label ("Rückwärts Backwards" and "Wir können leider nicht etwas mehr zu tun..."). Aosuke is the duo of Tobert Knopp and Ulf Schütte, the latter being a label head as well (Tape Tektoniks). Last year they have released their debut "Monotone Spirits" album co-released by Hamburg's Audiolith label and South Germany's Meudiademorte label." - Dekorder.

After nearly a decade of false starts, multiple game plans veering off the rails, and a handful of shattered hopes and/or dreams, the odyssey is finally complete—the new Fusetron site is here.

This is the first phase of a multipart rollout that will span the next few months: the currently browsable stock includes miscellaneous new releases from the past 8+ months (we have a lot of catching up to do), plus approximately a third of our backstock. Note that we’ve reduced/slashed prices on many titles and will continue to do so in order to make room for new stock. We’ll also be expanding / tweaking / improving / debugging the site itself (for example, we still have work to do on the automated international postage system, not to mention the inevitable inventory discrepancies that come with transferring an ancient and massive database to a new system).

Over the next few months, as we take inventory, clean house, and delve into our storage, we will be uploading thousands of additional items, gradually, on a near-daily basis. This will include the majority of the LPs, as well as many titles, in all formats, once thought long-gone. Many currently “sold out” items are likely to resurface.

Finally, once our general backstock is up (probably in the next two or three months) we’ll begin making our extensive stockpile of rarities available online for the first time: tons of random out-of-print titles, "deadstock," warehouse finds, secondhand collectibles, etc., accumulated over the past few decades.

Frequent/returning customers will be getting early access to these items. Details to follow on how this will work (a priority mailing list? a 'frequent flyer'-like program?), but it will not be based on dollars spent. We want to reward those who consistently support us, especially in the discogs marketplace era (to those who show up trying to poach five copies of a one-off rarity, and nothing else, ever… ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ ).

So—we suggest you take some time to dig through the site—even we’ve been surprised by what’s been turning up, and there’s much more to come.
