Achievement Unlocked

For the past few years, I have really loved reading Make Believe Melodies, a blog covering the whole spectrum of Japanese music.  I love the mix of interesting underground music and interesting J-Pop that gets covered on this blog (where else do you get Pamyu Pamyu being blogged about alongside lo-fi bedroom producers?), and the passion that the author has for the music he covers.  I have found heaps of now-favourites here, and at some point it probably crossed my mind that it would be cool if Super Magic Hats somehow made it on there.

And then we did, via our inclusion on Fogpak 11.  Check the career highpoint that is the Make Believe Melodies wrap of it here.

When It Spins out now on Left Of Field vol 3

We contributed a new track to the latest compilation from Left Of Field – a label set up to help raise funds and awareness for mental health issues & suicide prevention.  Check the whole compilation out here, it’s pretty epic.

Echo Island – Crystral Trees remix is out now

The lovely people at Dilated Time Records asked us if we would remix an Echo Island track last year, and we chose “Crystal Trees”, a beautiful piece of atmospheric music with a haunting vocal, and turned it into a sprawling piece of electronic chill.  It’s out now for pay what you want from here.
