An apology.

For those awaiting the next instalment of the Black Mill Tapes, we’re afraid you will have to wait a little longer…

We were assured by our Head Technician that he would have something for us by the 31st October, the anniversary of our first release. He clearly isn’t going to make that deadline, and has been reprimanded accordingly. He blames the workload that we place on him, but we know he’s been moonlighting, producing illicit remixes and even lining up releases on another label.

We have, however, managed to secure a piece that was destined for Volume 3. HT won’t reveal his reasoning for leaving this track off the (hopefully) forthcoming LP, but we think it’s rather good. Please find relevant material here.

Once again, as part of our continued quality control procedures, please make us aware of your thoughts on this, and all, matters.


We really shouldn’t!

As it seems to be an age until Volume 1’s release date, Our Head Technician is unexpectedly allowing us to give away a bonus number that was earmarked for Volume 2.

Snappily titled ‘Unmarked Reel Two, Track One’ it appears to be the last arpeggiations (?) of an expired synthesiser, accompanied by…strange disturbances…

Here it is…

As part of our ongoing quality control efforts, please come and leave a comment once you have obtained said number.
