A couple of months ago I was contacted by Dave Allison from Custom Made Music, asking for permission to include one of the Cumulus tracks on his label’s Spring Mixer collection. The Mixer is essentially a show case of new and (hopefully) upcoming artists in the genre of shoegaze, noise pop, dream pop and alternative rock.
The Mixer is printed in a limited run and distributed to radio stations, tv stations, blogs and other sites of potential review or air time. It’s really a promotional tool intended to get the word about the participating artists out as wide as possible.
I said yes of course, distribution is (almost) never a bad thing, and Part 1 of the mixer is now up on 8tracks.
The track that Dave selected from me is called Fahrbahn 14 – Cumulus Forming (Available on the Fahrbahn II album after the jump) and is made entirely using my modular synth. It represents the bridge between the first year of Farhbahn tracks into the Cumulus tracks of year 2.

Please note that this does not mean that Glitzerstrahl is now tied to or released / distributed by Custom Made in general.
