2019 repress. "Zinging, absolutely deadly seven-track EP from Mica Levion her return to DDS. Features three tracks with Tirzah (including the much sought-after "GO"), plus a dextrous Demdike Stare edit of "I Dare You" to chase up 2014's acclaimed Feeling Romantic Feeling Tropical Feeling Ill LP (DDS 011LP, 2015) for mutant dancefloors and sun-kissed headphone journeys. Smitten by the hugely addictive, brilliantly slippery two-step twister on "GO" (there's been a video online for this track since 2011) Demdike suggested the cut for release on DDS, and were subsequently privileged to peruse the unique space-time folds and dance/pop sampledelia of Mica's archive. As they also found out whilst compiling her last solo LP; it's a deeply rewarding experience to explore the Mica's output: immersing themselves in her peerless world of refractive colors, sawn-off textures and teasing arrangements. They've emerged with a joyously unhinged party-ready EP, traversing the mercurial two-step viscosity of Mica and Tirzah's "GO", to their addictively sticky ohrwurm, "I Dare You", and the free cosmic pop whorl of "Trip6love", before taking in the clanking ragga jag of "More Red" with Brother May, aka the London-based MC who voiced Mica's Fact Mix 444 in 2014. The cherry on top is a crucial Demdike edit of "I Dare You", an extended serve of the original. Mastered and cut by Matt Colton." - Demdike Stare.
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.
