VP Vol 1 Front & Back Covers

Until the official release of the album on 1st November anyone who purchases the exclusive pre-release download from Bandcamp will receive a CD copy of the album following its release. 

Your money will help us pay for CD pressing and associated costs and will mean we can sell copies of the album at our live events and hopefully make enough money to pay our talented musicians something too.

Vanishing Point (Vol. 1) is a 19-track compilation of experimental, leftfield, electronic and contemporary classical music. Click here to read more about it.

Please note a few of the longest tracks have been slightly shortened to fit the album on the CD version. These are minor edits and the download version contains the full length versions.

TRIBUTES AND SADNESS FOR A MANIC GENIUS

It is with huge sadness that we have to report the passing of John Molloy, aged 58, following a long up-and-down battle with cancer. John played with Neil March in the band that played the BBC Introducing Stage at Latitude in 2017. He was however more well-known as one half of 1980s Electronic Pop pioneers Mainframe.

John was a complete one-off; a computer wizard before most of us had ever even seen a computer, a virtuoso keyboardist whose own composing saw him cover a multitude of genres and media. 

Tributes have poured in on social media underlining the hundreds of lives he touched both as a musician and a human being. Our thoughts are with his lovely and super talented partner Damon and his amazing family.

The Emerging from the Mist series has focused on a different distinct area of new music each week. Edition 3 looked at five contrasting female singer-songwriters. Edition 2 focused on less mainstream artists from contemporary classical, jazz, world and improv areas. Edition 1 featured a wide spectrum of contemporary Pop, Urban and Alternative music.
