I’m very proud to announce the official release of The Many Colors of [astral projects]. This album is the culmination of ideas materialized in 2012. Styles range from mellow funk, to boogie, to disco, to jazz-funk, to hypnagogic.

Characterized by swirling organs, warm Rhodes, vintage synths,  and syncopated bass, this collection stands as the most advanced work from [astral projects] Records thus far, and as a sampler of the featured artists’ upcoming projects in the next few months.

Hi-res art .pdf files come with the digital release. Or if you prefer a physical copy there will be a limited edition disc that might come with some more surprises so you can get your copy. Also, if you purchase a physical copy, you’ll get a free digital copy as well. In the next couple weeks we’ll be expanding into more popular online music stores.

As mentioned before, every track here is part of a larger project from each individual artists. This collection stands as a sort of jumping off point of our new development. For instance, The Nubians record (Changing With The Times) will be released in late January, upon which point there will be some more announcements.

With all that said, I’m sure you’ll feel this joint as much as I do. -Js.One

Stony on the mix this week with an exclusive episode, this year’s giftmix for Js.One’s birthday. This one features a sampling of original material produced  and/or written by Js.One in 2012 in collaboration with all [ap] musicians. Definitely the jazzy/funkish/boogie/melodic vibe we’ve been on lately. Some completely unheard joints, and some new mixes of a couple tracks featured in VC episodes. What is important to be noted is that none of these tracks has an official album release yet…we have many projects in the works, which brings me to my next announcement.

This episode also serves as a promo for the upcoming release of a project highlighting the collected works of [astral projects] in 2012, which we feel is our best year yet. Many new strides of creativity were made in the last twelve months. Expect an online release around Christmas. More details coming soon!

Also, we have the return of  a couple classic Vintage Crates series for the next two weeks.

Projects on the horizon (Thru-January):

  • Various Artists- The Many Colors Of [astral projects] Records (Collection 2012)
  • The Nubians- Changing With The Times

Projects secheduled beyond January 2013:

  • Nova- (Untitled Project)
  • The Astralsound Orchestra- (Untitled Project)
