"New rocket by Muruga, after the Free Funk LP! This healing session opens and closes with two funk/jazz tracks, rec. by Muruga in trio & 4et with Ken Kozara on muted trumpet and Richard Smith on bass; Belita Woods, from P-Funk, is added on the last track of the album, May The Funk Be With You. The middle of the record is mostly perc. heavy and trance/ethnic oriented. Ascension had been written by the late master Baba Olatunji and had been rec. live @ The Spirit Drum Fest. w/special guest Badal Roy (who rec. w/Miles Davis, Ornette, Don Cherry, ect...) and Sikiru Adepoju (who rec. w/Mickey Hart, Olatunji, ect..). Nelson Ledges is a drums trio rec. live as well @ The Rhythm Fest in Ohio. Out of Nothing is a very special duo piece rec. w/Prem Das: here Muruga uses a unique Nada drum, while Prem Das (long years of apprenticeship in Mexico with a Huichol shaman and was also a colleague of Timothy Leary & Ralph Metzner) uses a water drum for a quite hypnotic effect ! Open your heart and let your body move... to the rhythm, to the groove!" - QBICO.
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.
