Everyone's releasing back catalogue it seems. My friends at Transmission Communications
are also working on their 1990s back catalogue too. In the email this afternoon from this little missive from Clan Analogue
: included in this is my first solo album-length release G-Type Nerve Agent
(CA023), and a lot of these other albums have withstood the test of time, Pear Shaped in particular but I still listen to Disco Stu and the first Deepchild album too, as well as various tracks off all the others. A fine collection of music is represented here!
Clan Analogue: The Festival Years
Clan Analogue are pleased to announce that a selection of its classic releases from the years 1998 to 2001 are now available in digital format from iTunes and other digital retailers. These albums are from an era when Clan Analogue snuck in through the back door of the corporate music industry, signing a lucrative distribution deal with Festival Records and releasing a series of albums still hailed as classic milestones in modern Australian electronic music.
Clan Analogue will shortly be releasing Re Cognition: The Clan Analogue Legacy Collection, a selection of the greatest tracks from the history of Clan Analogue, on a triple disc set, including a bonus CD of new remixes and DVD containing all the filmclips and the Plug In & Switch On documentary.
Now available in digital non-physical format are:
Jaunt 2: A Sojourn in Bass – various artists (catalogue number CA017)
A throbbing journey through drum’n’bass, dub, trip hop and downbeat grooves, with tracks by many Australian electro-funk luminaries.
Telemetry Orchestra - Live Better Electrically (catalogue number CA019)
Debut album from indie-dance crossover act Telemetry Orchestra, combining funk grooves with deep analogue synthesis in a new form of spaced-out electro-lounge.
Cognition Two: 20 Disco Greats – various artists (catalogue number CA020)
20 Disco Greats took Australian electronica deep into the Disco ghetto of funky beats and smooth basslines. Nominated for a Dance Music Award!

Prior to Englishman in Ibiza fame, Disco Stu released Adult Themes, a minimalist conglomerate of mangled disco samples, sparse electronics and driving basslines.

Staking out an area between fucked-up dub and funked-up techno with a dash of house thrown in, the debut release from the artist who later became Victor X-Ray.

5000 Fingers of Dr T present a collection of funky tracks, tasty tunes, buzzy squelches and groovy electro beats.

A deviant beat-based sound journey and an extraordinary excursion into electronica audio bliss of the purest form, from tech-house to deep bass.
Deepchild – Hymns From Babylon (catalogue number CA026)
The debut album release from the internationally renowned Deepchild, an eclectic album of experimental breaks, analogue blips and dirty bass-laden grooves.
