EDLER, HANS - Elektron Kukeso

"(Elektron Kukéso) was released in a small edition on Edlers own independent label Marilla. The music was recorded during many long late night sessions at the Electronic Music Studio (EMS) in the Swedish capital Stockholm. At the time, EMS was one of the worlds most advanced studios for serious electronic composition. The facilities were even praised by no less a person than Pierre Schaeffer -Ǭ- the father of the concrete music. In 1970, EMS could present a freshly installed computer which had cost 7 million Swedish crowns. Unlike the moogs, the computer had no keyboard, but had to be operated by a control console which occupied a room by itself and was arranged as a rectangle with a total length of 10 yards (circa 9 meters). It was only after having taken lessons in mathematics and programming that Edler was allowed to work on the gigantic machine, which in spite of its steep price wasnt very reliable. Against all odds, Edler managed to finish the recordings. The result was a one-of-a-kind-album too original to be copied. Elektron Kukéso is hi-tech and low-fi at the same time. Try to imagine Stockhausen on acid going berserk on Carnaby Street. Old school electronic breakbeats team up with the sound of vintage tone and noise generators -Ǭ-all filtered through a psychedelic kaleidoscope by a frustrated mind on high speed. The record comes with digipack-sleeve, OBI, a 24-page colour booklet with full story and pictures, plus a reprint of the original promotion-poster from 1971." - Boy Wonder.

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.
