The name Raymond Dijkstra may not be sparkling alive, but the man has\r\n been around for some time, and he has released many works, under his\r\n own name, aswell as Dadaphon, Razoul Uzlu, Ki Sync Pulse, Asra (a duo\r\n with Af Ursin) and at one point one-third Indra Karmuka. On this 7\r\n he doesnt return to the noise work he released before under his own\r\n name, but rather continues paths taken by the work as Dadaphon:\r\n amplifying objects, layering them and making a collage out of it. On\r\n the a-side there is the scratch of glass on metal sound in the\r\n foreground and osbscure, semi-percussive rumbling in the back.\r\n Similar scratch is on the b-side but the percussive element is louder\r\n here. Not dissimilar to Organum, Raymond Dijkstra however likes his\r\n sounds to be free of any electronic treatment, rather keeping in\r\n close contact with the original sounds. The treatments are played and\r\n not generated. A rather solitary voice in this kind of music. Should\r\n appeal to more people than it does by the name and thats a pity.\r\n Check it out, will ya?" - FdW, Vital. Edition of 100 copies. Restock of this 2004 release without the original sticker on label and signed and dated 14/03/11.
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.
