2020 EU edition on Red/Orange coloured  2LP - As C418, composer and producer Daniel Rosenfeld designs sounds to resonate in both physical and pixelated realms. Best known for his original soundtracks to Minecraft, the single best-selling video game of all time, he’s developed a discography of instrumental music over the last decade that traverses electronic pop patterns, neo-classical dreamscapes, and sparse ambient motifs. The latter element has broken from the “8-bit” pigeonholing of game music and earned him accolades that reference artists like Erik Satie (The Guardian) and Brian Eno (VICE). In 2015, after quietly self-releasing Minecraft Volume Alpha and Minecraft Volume Beta, Rosenfeld partnered with Ghostly International to reissue Minecraft Volume Alpha on vinyl and CD. The release garnered attention from proper music critics and the gaming community alike, becoming one of the most sought after records in the Ghostly catalog. Now, following several restocks of Alpha to fervent fan response, it is time for the soundtrack’s second installment to shine. For the legion of listeners and players to, at long last, have Minecraft Volume Beta in tangible formats. The double LP arrives in August 2020 on standard black and fire splatter colored vinyl, available in regular sleeves as well an exclusive limited-edition jacket with a lenticular cover which gives depth and movement to its 3D-rendered image.

Originally self-released in 2013, Minecraft Volume Beta was C418’s longest batch of music to date at nearly 140 minutes. The collection features tracks that were "silently" added to Minecraft during its music updates and a few that never officially entered the game. The run time is now adapted to fit the double LP format, while digital downloads include the full set. Rosenfeld’s unmistakable abilities are on display; he creates a sweeping variety of musical ideas that mirror the limitless universe of Minecraft. Ghostly International is thrilled to give this unique collaboration its due treatment and hopes to see the creative inspiration which drives Minecraft and Rosenfeld continue to disperse by virtue of this unexpectedly universal music.

For fans of Daft Punk who love dance music house and techno this is NOT an EDM album Its not the house music that we know Daft Punk to have made with filtered sampled loops drum machineprogrammed beats and electronic harsh noise Its not any of that that You cant fistpump to this music you cant go nuts to it So when you listen to Random Access Memories for the first time go into it with a different state of mind than House Music I invite you instead to hop into your DeLorean and take a plunge back to the year of 1979 when dance music was quite different

Random Access Memories is Discovery if Daft Punk had produced it 30 years ago This is a tribute to those who grew up in the 70s and late80s To those who grew up listening to Roger Troutmans vocoder in the band Zapp on classic songs like Computer Love its on this album To those who danced to Nile Rodgers impeccable guitar licks on classic Chic songs like Good Times and I Want Your Love theyre here too And to those who enjoyed the mellowedout soulful keyboard playing of Michael McDonald and the Jazz Crusaders its all here too From the beginning track Give Life Back To Music to Get Lucky to Beyond and everything inbetween you can hear the distinctive influence of the 70s

Random Access Memories is also for those Who grew up watching movies like Tron Blade Runner and The Muppet Movie and television shows like Miami Vice You hear it in every one of the songs that atnight convertible topdown cruise style of the album The immense amount of vocoder the guitar licks strings and synthesizers The happy children playing While Random Access Memories may not be as mindblowing as Discovery was this is a fantasticallyproduced album This album is like watching a movie Its a soundtrack to a life really a life of two robots trying to be human Its slowerpaced somber and meaningful And its really good Amazon Christian Matozzo
