Releases featuring Sage Taylor
After self-releasing the album Inertia, we are proud to bring you the b-sides and outtakes album Inertia Sessions. Sage Taylor brings more of the IDM side from Pigments of Your Imagination to the front with his follow up to that album. Inertia Sessions takes songs that didn’t make the main album and brings them in their own light on the album. Ranging from Leftfield to mellow IDM and beyond this album showcases that the leftovers from Inertia are just as good, even if they aren’t of the same style or feel as the tracks on Inertia. Tracks like Fuego and Spiral Wind showcase a great more minimal style of IDM with tracks such as Lambent and Terminus showcasing a more leftfield style of fast drums in an almost breakbeat style. This album showcases the talent that Sage Taylor has when making IDM. You can grab Inertia if you haven’t heard it over here: http://sagetaylor.bandcamp.com/
Sage Taylor is back for another release on the label, this time bringing Space Ambient to you. Distant Constellation is a collection of Drones from his 404? days and features an unreleased tune as the title track of the album. Floating away into space is what you’ll be feeling, but at the same time a sense of melody while very slow and some great ambiance to go along with it. If you’re a fan of any of the previous Drone releases, you’ll be sure to love this album from a true master.
Chronos: The Battle For is a 10 track album that is designed to be a soundtrack sampler for a fictional RPG. The project was inspired by the game Pier Solar and The Great Architects. The album starts off with the quiet and moody piano track Lumi, and then goes into an acoustic guitar and strings track Explorers in The Forest. The album is a great Ambient album to relax to, and should remind you of the olden days of RPGs. A great album for lovers of Ambient and video games.
Pigments of your Imagination, Sage Taylor’s 2009 album, began as an afterthought for 2007’s ‘Manufacture your Brothers.’ Where that album was decidedly warm and mystical (in the furthest-reaching senses of the words), POYI was to take a more relaxed, cooler (but not colder) route. The result was two years of experimenting with new techniques that ultimately ended up in a dubbier, more ambient sound, as opposed to the warm, almost hip-hop approach that permeated MYB. After the dust settled, the tracks were arranged, and what you see here is the final product of two years worth of work, rolled into an hour and sixteen minutes of chilled out ambient techno that’s pleased to finally see its release on a label, where others will hopefully enjoy it for a long time to come.
The first release in the Get to Know series brings Sage Taylor to the limelight. What a better way to decide if an album is worth getting than to hear music that the artist has made in the past. That is what this series of releases is designed to do. Sage has been making music for many years and over the years has become a very good undiscovered talent until now. This release spans from his 2006 album Cascade up to the forthcoming release Pigments of Your Imagination. Included are songs from the 2 albums that Sage says hold a special place for him: Manufacture Your Brothers and Clouds. Working closely with Sage, this release best showcases what he can do and how good he is.
