Pre-Orders Open For New Split Tape

Pre-orders just opened for EM Tapes first physical release in 5 years (marking our 10 year anniversary), this will be a split cassette between myself and Polypores of the UK!

50 professionally duplicated clear tapes with gold plating, includes download code with bonus track and video.

An hour of electronic, New-Age bliss-outs from Fort Collins, Colorado and Preston, UK - the A-Side is a dark, cerebral, Berlin School mind-maze that singes the soul strings; the B-side is a vibrant evolutionary ecosystem fueled by Polypores synth modular alchemy. 

Two opposite electronic worlds that oddly perfectly complement each other :)

 

Also Black Tempel Pyrämid just released another tape "The Hierophant" on limited edition cassette from the Submarine Broadcasting Company (UK).

Over 40 minutes of Krautrock-tree worshipping-introspections including a colossal monster finale.

30 gold tapes, includes download code with bonus track.

EU customers - please grab copies direct from SBC whereas NA folks - I have copies available at my Bandcamp.

                                                            

Finally in other news, there's a Black Tempel Pyrämid 2xCS imminent and some Kösmonaut wax on the horizon (first material in over 3 years), some solo synthwave / Horror vinyl slated, and always more tapes on the way :)

Thanks for your tremendous support, EM Tapes surely wouldn't have existed for this long without it

Black Tempel Pyrämid's "Prism of the Present" Tape Out Now

A new side-project of mine called Black Tempel Pyrämid just released it's first album "Prism of the Present" on limited edition cassette from The Weird Beard (UK) and digitally by EM Tapes.

COVID era meditations and levitations channeling American primitive Krautrock and blues.

Sold out at the source however there's a few copies at my Bandcamp.

                                                     

Also, back in October for one of Bandcamp's free Fridays, EM Tapes reissued two PRP albums - Waves and Dystopian States of Amerika at name your own prices.

Both were released on CD and tape respectively back in 2017; the reissued albums are remastered and include 4 new bonus tracks. Grab them below.


   

Finally, EM Tapes will be releasing a split PRP tape in Spring 2021 and a new Kösmonaut LP is due to arrive some time next year.

Three New Tapes Drop



My first solo album in three years will release on February 10, 2020 from Frequency Domain of the UK!


Multiverse Waveforms includes an odd mix of vapor wave deviations with subtle nuances of underground Hip Hop: "...there is a maturity and coherence to the tracks, which I would not wholly describe as synthesiser music in it’s more popular form. Not easy listening by any means, but it’s not intended to be." - Flatland Frequencies

 


Also, LIFE EDUCATION had two new limited edition cassettes drop late in 2019 from Woodford Halse of the UK and Ephem-Aural of Brooklyn, NY!





Soul Examination features over an hour of cerebral, motorik and meditational drones; limited edition of 60 on bespoke pro-dubbed tape. Unique packaging includes individually screen printed and die cut outer sleeve and j-card.



On the other end of the sonic spectrum, Gemütlichkeit features ethereal mystical jazz of the Kraut persuasion. Limited edition of 50 with download code.

Next, to commemorate the new tapes, a bundle has been put on Bandcamp which includes Multiverse Waveforms and Gemütlichkeit in addition to New Earth Assembly and Guru Overlord. Grab it at the store while supplies last.

Lastly, there's still a few more LIFE ED projects in the pipeline for 2020 and also another tape / CD solo album dropping this Spring.
