"We here at Beniffer are pleased to bring to you two projects by the ever impressive Keith Fullerton Whitman who not only runs the most thorough and tasteful distro on the internet these days but has, in his possession, the magic wand that only true electronic music wizards can lay claim to.The Hrvatski side seems to me like the wettest, wildest dreams of Alex Empire who has been institutionalized after seeing god in the pages of a Bop magazine which he systematically ate out of a blender which wouldnt turn off. There is a lot of things happening here, but at the center of it all is a relentless sort of car chase beat pattern that never lets up which is perfect if youre late for a blowjob scene in a Michael Bay movie. The KFW piece, bereft of the onslaught of side one, nonetheless bows to the same caffeinated deity. This time around the main attraction is mysterious foreground warble, like intercepted noise off a sphinxlike anomaly, transmitting vague messages from a subterranean religion, washed out in the last ice age. The cassette comes in a sleeve with a full size double sided poster with silkscreened art by Jacob Horwood on the cover, something else on the back by Andrew Zukerman." -Bennifer Editions.
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.
