Way back in the autumn of 2004, while I was still in my carefree mid-20’s, I took a chance and pushed Twoism.org out, kicking and screaming into the world. Taking inspiration from Chyld, I wanted to give fans of Boards of Canada a new home to discuss our shared obsession and love of music, art and culture. I had no idea if anyone would even say hello, let alone whether we’d still be here fourteen years later. Frankly, it was all a little naïve and innocent, or at least that’s how it feels now looking back at those early posts.
Today, in 2018, I’m proud and amazed that Twoism continues to go from strength to strength. Collectively, we harbour the freaks, shelter the outcasts and welcome in the pariahs of the electronic and alternative music world. We talk, we share, we support and more than this, we offer one another an online haven, a place to call home.
Also several interesting music projects developed with our pinnacle, One on Twoism. which became a household name.
Now, we want to take things to a new level.
We’ve all known for some time that Twoism.org harbours many incredible artists. Without even pausing for thought, I think of Com Truise (SarinSunday), Lone, Solar Bears (John Fonda), Skytree, Flamingo Pudding (Cupz), Saturday Index, Boreal Network, Cities Of Earth and of course all the One on Twoism artists….. The list of incredible artists connected to our fertile corner of the internet goes on and on and on. Sadly, we also learned that some, who shall remain nameless here, exploited that rich vein for their own nefarious means and that hurt me personally. I know it hurt you too and this sowed a seed of an idea which has now come to bloom.
So, it is with great pride that today we are announcing the single release launch on Twoism Records. This has been long in the planning, but the time is high to make this a reality. Myself and Mexicola have been working on this project in the background for a considerable time and we’re delighted to announce that our first release is from the incredible Weathermonger, a long-time Twoism.org regular who many of you will know as IanRedpoint. His full length debut titled ‘The Ephemeral City’ is nothing short of wonderful and I know you’re going to be blown away by it. Get in early and order the collector’s edition complete with a gorgeous colour cassette which includes a bonus track - a truly spectacular remix from ADecentMan. You do NOT want to miss this! Keep an eye on twoism.org as we roll out more details in the upcoming weeks.
In time, we will add to our roster. We already have several interesting artists lined up who we think you’ll love, but that’s for another day. For now, sit back and relax
To close I'd wish to express my personal gratitude to my partner in crime Mexicola. Without his endless energy and help this wouldn't have happened!
We’ve started up.
