"Reissue, originally released in 2002. Esplendor Geométrico, the influential industrial pioneers of the pulsating, hypnotic and mechanical rhythms, present the extended version of their album Compuesto de Hierro to celebrate the 20th anniversary of its release. Recorded in Beijing in 2002 and out of print for over 15 years, Compuesto de Hierro was originally released only on CD and now for the first time on double vinyl including on side D four new and unreleased tracks recorded in 2022, inspired by the music on the album. Now remastered for vinyl, the sleeve design is based on the original cover. Compuesto de Hierro is a perfect example of the industrial-tribal sound of Esplendor Geométrico, developed over more than two decades, reminiscent at times of their most "ethnic" album, Mekano-Turbo. The hypnotic and elaborate rhythms are masterfully combined with vocals, electronic analog sounds, and sonorities from the Far East, especially from China. Compuesto de Hierro represents a unique viewpoint in the fusion of traditional or ethnic music with classical industrial music. Esplendor Geométrico: Arturo Lanz and Saverio Evangelista. Composed by Arturo Lanz. Design: Alonso Urbanos and Andrés Noarbe (original cover). Remastered by Luca Spagnoletti, 2022. Edition of 600 (numbered)." - Geometrik .
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.
