New Ethnostep compilation – features one of our tunes

July 14, 2018

Released for Netlabel Day 2018, this is the eighth compilation in the Ethnostep series.   Secret Archives of the Vatican and Thousand Yard Prayer have had tracks on some of the previous releases and there is a Secret Archives tune on this one, Green Destiny (Ethnostep Mix).

One significant development is that the album features two tracks by the legendary producer and bassist Bill Laswell.

Check out previous Ethnostep albums and also the many other fine releases from the Subbass label.

Reissue of our first CD album from 1998

July 10, 2018

We’ve just made our first CD album Reformation, originally released in 1998, available from Bandcamp.

We have mixed feelings about it now…it was early days and we didn’t quite know what we were doing or even what we were trying to do.

If we were writing or recording these tunes now, we’d probably do everything differently. However – this is our history!

We don’t have a good file of the original artwork, so this is a new cover. There’s a small image of the original front cover included in the download.


The Time Between Times – track now available for download

June 23, 2018

A few days ago we posted a video of this track and at that point we were planning for the tune to be on the next album release by Thousand Yard Prayer.

However, the more we listened to it, the more we realised that it didn’t fit with the general sound or themes of the tracks being worked on for the album. So, we decided to simply release it as a single track.  Here it is for download or streaming.  We hope you like it.  (We’re happy with the artwork too – it took ten minutes to create!).


Dust – the Remixes (reissue of 2001 album)

June 22, 2018

One of our Facebook friends asked us to make one of our old releases available again. Fortunately, we had a CDR with the tracks so we could do so.

It’s a collection of remixes of one of our tunes called Dust.  To be honest, I far preferred all the remixes to the original track and I don’t think we ever put Dust on an album. The enthusiasm was lacking.

2001 was before online music was a practical reality so music was still distributed mostly on CD. We shifted almost no copies of this album, unfortunately.

The remixes are banging, though! Each of the artists took a different approach and there’s some real creativity on show. These remixes deserve to be heard.

Over the last few years we have uploaded some highly eclectic DJ mixes to MixCloud.   Have a listen – there will be music here that you’ve never heard before and it is all awesome.

Please share any of the mixes you like and leave a comment.

The Time Between Times

June 20, 2018

Here’s a new tune and video from Thousand Yard Prayer.  We’re not quite sure what genre of music this is…it started out as one thing, using a Middle Eastern scale etc, but turned out sounding different. Sometimes tunes write themselves!

The Time Between Times will be on the next Thousand Yard Prayer release.
