January 24th will see the release of Relaxed Machinery’s 4th year anniversary, and to celebrate, the label is releasing a compilation album titled ‘reBOOT’. It features current RM artists, including myself, Frore, Steve Brand, Apne Sinn, Loren Nerell, Eyes Cast Down, Robert Scott Thompson, and many others. Having listened to it already, let me tell you, it’s absolutely fantastic. It’s an honour for me to share an artist roster with such heavy-hitters in the ambient realm, and I’m very excited for what’s in store for Relaxed Machinery in 2014.
The album will be played in it’s entirety January 25th on from 3pm-5pm Pacific time on Rebekkah Hilgraves’ show, ‘At Waters Edge’. She will also be interviewing Relaxed Machinery’s label head and benevolent dictator, John Koch-Northrup. Many rM artists will also be in the chat room to interact with listeners and answer any questions you may wish to ask them. (I won’t be able to attend due to a scheduling conflict.)
In other news, after nearly 2 years and multiple delays, I’m finally starting to close in on the last 25% or so of a new album, this time a collaboration. More details on this to come, but I’m hoping to have it completed by April. I would describe the sound as quite a bit softer and overall much lighter in tone than previous releases, I’m very excited about this release and must apologize to all my listeners about the many delays on this album, it’s been a tough year.
