"First non-privately distributed release on Raymond Dijkstras label since 2009, following a long string of ultra-limited art edition lathe-cuts. An unlikely collaboration between Dijkstra and Tiff Lion, who has done soundtrack work for CSI and The Hunger Games. LP by the duo to follow next year on Dekorder. "The music has an obscure and surreal character hard to categorize. It certainly has filmic qualities, if only as a film of the inner-eye. The music has a psychedelic touch and elements of esotericism by its use of sitar, (primitively played) tabla and highly reverberated string instruments. The reciting of old Italian Alchemistic texts by Tiff Lion links the music further to a dark spirituality. There is a great emphasis on acoustic instrumentation played in a raw manner (among others piano-strings) giving the whole record a very rudimentary character. The use of electronics is done in such a way that its often impossible to divide acoustic and electronic sounds. The electronic instrumentation thus emphasizes the rawness of the acoustic sounds. Highly recommended for lovers of psychedelic music."\r\n"Vanilla white vinyl with dash of brown (every exemplar has a different dash so every exemplar is unique)\r\nVinyl-record weight: 160 grams. 33 Rpm.

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.
