ANNOUNCEMENT • DEREK ROGERS – A PHYSICAL ASCENSION (HD029)

HOLODECK is proud to announce the release of Derek Rogers‘s A Physical Ascension. The ceaselessly expanding mind of Texas native Derek Rogers strives to reconcile the limitations of traditional instrumentation by systematically extracting their elemental voices from their natural form on his latest cassette and HOLODECK debut, A Physical Ascension. Rogers’ prolific output coupled with his dynamic take on minimalism and ambience has lead to appearances on a host of celebrated underground labels and unanimous respect among experimental audiences and musicians alike. Utilizing modern technology to broaden the scope of his phonic craftsmanship, Rogers dismantles and reconstructs acoustic sound waves at their base level as a compositional motif, creating a boundless palate of complex textures and arrangement.

The album will drop on October 16th, one day before Cassette Store Day, and is part of a three-tape batch that will be released the same day. The last of the three albums will be announced shortly, so, stay tuned…

You can pre-order A Physical Ascension on tape at our STORE, and digitally on our bandcamp. Fine digital retailers will carry the album shortly. For more info click “more” below…

Announcement • Skullcaster – Revaluation (HD024)

HOLODECK is proud to announce the release of Skullcaster‘s Revaluation. Experimental music listeners may be familiar with Chris Cones from his contributions to both How I Quit Crack and FUTURE BLONDES. However, Cones own solo effort Skullcaster is another beast all together – and we could not be more happy than to be putting his immaculate effort Revaluation out on cassette and digital. Noisey, who premiered the first excerpt today, said the album uses “throbbing synths, sitar samples, and more to come to a spaced out and blissful conclusion…it’s trippy, it’s smart, and it’s just plain dope.” – we happen to whole-heartedly agree.

The album will drop on October 16th, one day before Cassette Store Day, and is part of a three-tape batch that will be released the same day. The next two albums will be announced shortly, so, stay tuned…
