Over a year ago now, I decided to ask all of the artists involved in The Places Series if they would be interested in a new remix project. The brief to them was simple, take an existing Places Series track and re-imagine it, make it your own, find your own, new strangely isolated place.
What started as a small idea has grown into an amazing selection of music and hopefully the fulfilment of a lifelong dream for many of us – we’re now looking to press the record to vinyl, accompanied by a poster, tshirt and a hand-made custom CDr.
Today, this project takes a giant-leap towards becoming a reality as we launch an indiegogo campaign to help fund the vinyl press. We are trying to raise $5500 to cover the costs of producing the vinyl and in return, anybody who contributes has the chance to get a copy. It will be a beautiful double transparent vinyl, mastered by the legendary Rafael Anton Irisarri (Ghostly/The Sight Below) and just 250 will be pressed (by the brilliant Furnace MFG)
I’ve also been lucky enough to have Kevin Bryce create some amazing wooden, double CDr cases to be a part of the packages. It’s taken Kevin quite a bit of effort to make these, and only ten will be available so be quick if you want one!

The rewards on offer
Any contribution is a big help in making this project happen, but for any type of contribution you make, i’ve tried to create a decent return for your generosity and kept prices as low as possible.
$5 will get you a big thank-you on the vinyl artwork.
$15 will get you a thank-you and a HQ download of the full Uncharted compilation – 18 tracks, over two-hours of music.
$20 will get you the above, as well as an exclusive surprise MP3 package prepared by the artists involved, featuring new (even some unreleased) music.
$40 will get you all of the above, and the limited edition double transparent vinyl including an A3 poster.
$60 will get you all of the above plus an Uncharted artwork t-shirt.
$100 will get you all of the above, plus a custom hand-made double CDr.
Or if vinyl isn’t your thing, for $60 you can get the custom CDr, thank you, HQ downloads and surprise MP3 package.
We need your help deciding on which tracks make the vinyl edition.
As you can see, 18 tracks aren’t going to fit on a double vinyl package. And every artist has worked hard to get us this far, so to be fair we want you to decide which tracks make it on to the vinyl edition. Ideally we end up with 8, but ALL tracks will be included in the HQ downloads and on the double CD.
