Nuage has launched a campaign to raise funding for a limited edition vinyl release of some of his hauntingly atmospheric drum n bass tracks from earlier in his production career.
Cloud Maps is a collection of twelve of the Russian producer’s best drum n bass tracks. In common with his more recent 4×4 output, each track is deeply melodic and intensely rhythmic with some beautiful vocals scattered throughout. The tracks have previously been released digitally but, as yet, never on vinyl. With luck, that’s about to change.
The campaign, in partnership with Vinylbackers, aims to raise €6290 (they’re already at 21%!) in order to press 200 collector’s edition copies of Cloud Maps. Investors are rewarded with a variety of ‘kits’ depending on how much they commit, ranging from their name on a mini poster inside each copy to a full collector’s kit, which is a signed, pre-release test pressing.
Anyone who follows this site regularly will know that we’re big fans of Nuage. Have a listen to the Cloud Atlas tracks, we’ve been blown away by their quality and we’re sure you will be too. If you would like to support the campaign, you can contribute directly on Indiegogo. It’s also worth checking out the Vinylbackers website – a great concept that will hopefully enable many talented electronic musicians to get their music onto vinyl in the future.
