Description :

The triple album of K.U.R.O. & Charm is something completely unexpected, a treasure from the land of the rising sun. This music will make you dream of oriental landscapes, of lotus flowers, of psychedelic fragrances from a different universe, and feel the special energy of those years.

The DAT tapes were preserved as a treasure by the artist and we are so lucky that they remained in perfect condition for so long. All the tracks contained in this deluxe triple edition were in fact produced between 1992 and 1998, as explained in detail in the 8-page booklet included.

 

The collaboration with master K.U.R.O. is something that the label wanted to do for a very long time to promote the incredible Japanese sound worldwide and to create a bond with the land of the magic.

 

DAT Records is so proud to present a spectacular selection from the Japanese masters and we are sure that you may remember these tracks from partying in Japan while others will be delighted to hear these compositions for the first time. The music has been remastered from the original master files by Analog Dimension, and both the artist and the label are very happy with the results, so have fun and enjoy this superb music.

Release Date: 11 October 2019

VA - Analog Visions [DATCD011]

 

This compilation completes the wonderful Analog trilogy devoted to releasing unheard gems of the past and we truly think that this third volume is magical.

 

DJ Draeke, with the help of DJ Solitare, has selected the best possible tracks for this release that will be a testament to an epoch that has disappeared, and is a perfect compilation to celebrate the 10-year anniversary of the DAT Records label.

 

We offer you for the very first time these unique live and alternate versions to hear how goa trance was heard at parties when artists were doing real performances on stage with a multitude of synths, tweaking and shaping tracks into spectacular versions in the moment.

 

All the tracks appearing in this release have been tested in recent years on dancefloors all over the world, and some of them are so rare that even the producers did not have copies. It is just thanks to in-depth research that they could be located and then brought back to life with fresh mastering.

 

As usual, the release comes with a fabulous 8-page booklet with stories and trivia about all of these spectacular tracks. For this incredible occasion we have also recovered some long sold-out special coloured jewel cases, so this release will stand out as something unique in your collection.

 

We hope you will support the hard work behind this release that took around 4 years to bring to reality.

EDIT on postponed release date:

 

At DAT Records we are very excited about our upcoming compilation Analog Visions!

 

On Draeke’s trip to Poland in October 2018, he visited some CD pressing plants and we were all thrilled to hear that one plant said they could create CDs well over the traditional 80 minutes’ duration. Because this VA release features some very long tracks, this option would give us the opportunity to fill the CD beyond the usual capacity and offer more music to our fans. We therefore created a compilation that totalled 86 minutes and enthusiastically sent it off for pressing.

 

We heard back a while later that the plant was in fact not able to produce what they had promised and could not successfully create a CD of this length despite numerous attempts. We inquired at two other pressing plants we had used before, plus another, but none of them were able to produce a disc of this timing despite their stated belief that they could. One German plant had produced a CD of 87 minutes but because a number of customers’ players had issues playing it, they advised us not to produce a CD of comparable duration.

 

We have found what we believe is the best opportunity to make all of the promised music available to our fans: we have removed one track from the printed CD that will be made digitally available to all who buy the disc, and we will also include that track on the upcoming Mind Rewind Volume 4 compilation so that a hard copy of this rarity will be available on CD.

 

We extend our deepest gratitude to Tetrahedron for their understanding of the track listing shift (they are in fact delighted to be featured on Mind Rewind) - we are glad that this rare project’s music will be able to reach more listeners in both digital and physical formats.

 

And we are delighted that the 78-minute compilation Analog Visions, filled with eight exceedingly rare tracks, has now been pressed and the delivery will shortly start.

 

We tried to keep the release date for the actual label anniversary and have them released on the 21st but the pressing plant did not deliver the CD in time for that and our distributor in the UK stated that the next available release date was then on the 18th of January 2019.

 

Thanks for your understanding and happy holidays :)
