BOOM!!! BAM!!! 💥 outta nowhere! i have a brand new album for you. it’s the latest Maurice Galactica album, “Plaything: Cipher”. i’m releasing it with Sichtexot, one of the coolest labels in the universe! the album is out now! check it out and let me know what you think! what’s your pleasure planet earth people?! exclamation points, maybe?

by the way, there are 3 digital singles from the album for your listening pleasure … Spaceships and Beat Machines // New Galactica Era and Enthrall Preference // Trials and Intentions.

i’m dropping a new special edition single for my songs “Your Purpose” and “Why We Dream”! they originally appeared on my Afterthought album and the new single will be released on 7-inch vinyl. pre-orders are going up now at your favorite shops. Your Purpose appears on Samurai Champloo and Why We Dream is the perfect counterbalance as the b-side. fun fact – the artwork was created as a fun homage to the Samurai Champloo soundtracks i appear on: Departure and Impression. i hope you all like it!

you can also catch me on kenichiro nishihara’s new album. i’m featured on a track called “Waking Dream”. i had a blast writing and recording it. check it out and let me know what you think.

oh, speaking of Maurice Galactica, there’s a reissue of Rapture Kontrolle! this is a new project put together in collaboration with YHS Records. there’s a crystal clear double vinyl version as well as a transparent teal cassette version. this is the first time this whole album has been released on vinyl and it also includes a bonus track!
