[DATCD011] VA - Analog Visions - DAT Records - 10 years anniversary!

Recommended Posts

draeke    292

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.

Why the double tracklist? Read this:
At DAT Records we are very excited about our upcoming compilation Analog Visions! While the CD is currently in production, we wanted to share an important update that comes after we approached the production process and encountered some technical difficulties.

On Draeke’s recent trip to Poland, 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. Mark/DJ Solitare, who co-produced this release, has some classical CD that are 85 minutes long so we thought by today's standard it was absolutely not a problem. 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, is in production and will be with you soon. Stay tuned here for updates!

Jaïa - Insomnie (Live Mix)

Curious about this one, there was an unidentified "remix" of this track that I heard several times on Youtube, with a new melody, guessing it is this version. Sounded very good (love the original too!).

yes the live mix, although very rare, was played in some parties by me, Roy Sason, Mark Ainley (DJ Solitare), and others during the last 20 years. As you will read in the booklet is a mix they made in 1996 only to be played at live events (back then) and that Jaia himself still plays when he does his retro sets. I am sure there are some recording floating on youtube of this track and we are delighted to be officially releasing this track now.

@richpa, yes bandcamp is already available for preorder (cd or digital download only), however when you order on dat website you always get a link to get wav, flac or mp3 files of the release, plus for whoever wants, there can be a bandcamp code too, so please when can, order from dat webstore, is the BEST for me. I leave the bandcamp option to whoever doesn't know my label or the dat webshop, where the releases will always be cheaper than bandcamp or discogs. However here goes:

https://datrecords.bandcamp.com/

 @technosomy the cases this time will be 5 different random colours, except if you order directly from me you are guaranteed to get a blue case, that looks amazing, strictly limited to one per customer to avoid reselling.

Yeah, Bandcamp is important for me just because the collection and when I go out to have the music available on my phone, so d/l code for the release will  be a great if doable. I will send you a message when I prepare the payment.

Thanks :)

@Redo Mark has heard it recently and it's a 25 minute version, not 40. But we don't have it. Maybe in the future there will be a chance to get it and release, but please let's stick to the topic :)

I just placed my pre-order as well! :D

One small thing Fede... when I placed my order in your DAT records webshop (using firefox), the initial shipping price showing was the most expensive (COURIER) option... I imagine it would be better to show the other cheaper option as default (as it then looks like it is cheaper to order through e.g. bandcamp, while that is not really the case), confused me anyways, before I went further in the ordering process :unsure:

very good point and i fully agree
was the reason why i didn't get juggling from you and did a trade with someone else for it
especially from us far away countries, glad i persisted to the end on this one (yes it was the blue case that got me, nice work my old friend, where you get your marketing degree??)

Delays seem often to be a name of the Goa Trance game. I'm really curious about the rest of the Analog Vision 3 tracks.. Actually got my finger on the pay with PayPal button, but the supported by comments got me thinking..

Well I think that's a bit of overeaction. With any kind of pre-order you run the risk to miss the stated release date. No big deal if you ask me. That's why pre-orders work best with labels and names you trust and you know they will deliver. So, i ask you my good sir. Do YOU trust DAT Records? <_<

 

I do ^_^^_^

EDIT:

BTW, no offence but I don't think the Bandcamp comments are meant for something like that. They should reflect the opinion about the music and since it is not released yet, there should be none. It is very easy to send a direct message to the label.

I've got trust in them. And just bought the CD. 

Delays happen so it's fine. Yeah your right. Comments in BC are usually for people giving their helpful opinion about the release. DAT's info on the release if one reads also gives us the perfectly good explanation for why this VA release is delayed. Hallucinogens 3 :rolleyes:

All the pre-orders have been shipped, so the release is really out now. 

The delays are really the fault of the pressing plant, they promised something they could not deliver in the first place. We trusted them and got f****d but lesson learned. We couldn't deliver for Xmas but on the 7th we shipped all the CDs to the loyal customers that pre-ordered, and in a matter of days the release will be out, on bandcamp for streaming and youtube too. So everyone will be able to listen and make up his mind about the tracks. I am completely satisfied of the final product and hopeflly you'll be too :) 

Thanks for the trust and support!

PS: we were delayed by one month, not really that much if you ask me, considering it took us years to find the music and get agreements with all of the artists ;)
