All rights reserved. ℗&©2017 Reza V. Thank you for your support & helping indie artists - 8 years of production work, 2009-2017 is showcased in this LP. All tracks have been carefully mastered for this release. Available 6.06.17 on Bandcamp digitally & limited run of physical Vinyl CD-Rs and cassettes available upon request.
The release date 6.06 is symbolic of one of the first Roland Drum machines. Released one year after the infamous TR-808, and originally used to pair with the Roland TB-303 bass synthesizer - the Roland TR-606 Drumatix is an important part of electronic music history - and if it were not for the TR-606 & TR-808, there may not have been an TR-707 and TR-909, and if it were not for these 4 staple drum machines, electronic music as we know it may not have come into existence. These machines influenced electronic & hip-hop musical genres over the last 3 decades. Instead of releasing a concept-based album, I went with a 'color based' album approach to showcase the mood of the music. There will be future album releases with this color based album approach.
Special thanks to all those who have been there for me over the years of this audible journey & YOU fans for your belief in the music! :)
