Retrospect LP – A Decade Of Fracture & Neptune

Retrospect Cover Art

Wow can you believe it, we’ve been at it for about 11 years now! To celebrate this we have put together our first ever long player, a retrospective of our career so far…

‘Retrospect – A Decade Of Fracture & Neptune’ is an 18 track, digital LP that brings together the classic, always cosmic, Fracture & Neptune sound from the year 2000 right up to the current date. Some released faves, some unreleased, some brand new and some unheard tracks from the vaults! All wonderfully remastered by Bob Macc and sounding better than ever. Release date 30th May 2011.

To make this project even more special we have enlisted the skills of many other artists and creatives to bring you a multimedia package including an official music video, documentaries featuring Martin Fieber and us digging in our favourite record shop, photos of Fracture & Neptune HQ through the years and artwork courtesy of Emilski & Nick Duggins. All this extra material will be available via the iTunes version of the album, including bonus tracks and demos and liner notes on each of the tracks.

To celebrate the release of ‘Retrospect – A Decade Of Fracture & Neptune’ we have a very special limited vinyl release featuring two brand new tracks. The sleeve art for this release will be hand printed and individually numbered by Emilski. If you saw the artwork for the special test presses of The Limit, then you will know Emilski is amazing and that these will be very, very special. Keep your eyes peeled end of May 2011

Customtone picks up where our 2006 track Ventura (Med School) left off, with distant ghostly slide guitar courtesy of steel string veteran Martin Fieber and emotive song structure. It has become a firm personal favourite of ours and encapsulates the Fracture & Neptune sound perfectly… Tone to the bone!

On the flip side we find Fracture teaming up with the mysterious Chewie to create a paranoid and murky stepper entited Brain Freeze. With trade mark Astrophonica mid range moans and neck snap beats this one will sit in the collection nicely next to the label’s previous 4 releases.

Art and design are a massive part of the Astrophonica ethos and to commemorate the release of Customtone resident artists Emilski & Nick Duggins have created a quite simply breathtaking video for the track. Described as a psychedelic journey into the Astrophonica universe, Headtop have crafted a pencil and ink drawn stop frame animation that combines classic and contemporary animation techniques.
The result? think Hans Richter on acid, art deco astrology and comic book constellations, so rich in detail we reckon you’ll be hitting the replay button again and again. Watch this space…

Now we feel old… But here’s to another 10 years!
