Sonic Meditations is proud to present the 2006 heavy drone suite Center of the Earth by Expo 70. This four part suite is presented on deluxe 180 gram audiophile virgin vinyl housed in gatefold tip-on jackets. Mastered for vinyl by Pete Lyman of Infrasonic Sound. Justin Wrights Expo 70 has been gaining momentum over the years, having started with self-released CDrs, Wright has made a name across the globe for Expo 70. Center of the Earth was recorded over 3 days in 2006, released by Wright himself, the album sold over 650 CDrs. Wright also re-released Center of the Earth last year on his start-up label, Sonic Meditations in a edition of 200 cassette tapes, which quickly sold out. Now Wright is issuing this epic drone album on vinyl, the heavily low-end drenched drone suite will sprawl across 2 180 gram LPs. Due to the length of track 3, it will sprawl across from side C to D. Expo 70 has releases on Beta-lactum Ring, Dead Pilot, Kill Shaman, Peaant Magik, Sloow Tapes and Reverb Worship, just to name a few. - Sonic Meditations.
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.
