NOT IN STOCK
The Colorseries was a series of ten records released in rapid succession by Ireland's minimal master Donnacha Costello in 2004 and marked the breakthrough point in his career. The original releases were vinyl-only and to date have not been made available for download. This is their first appearance on CD. For this 2007 compilation, Donnacha's favorite selections from the series have been edited and carefully remastered and are now sonically far superior to the original vinyls. In addition, the CD contains some previously unreleased and very special material from the Colorseries sessions. These additions will undoubtedly make the CD of interest to the many fans that enthusiastically collected the original vinyl series. In the intervening years, Donnacha has scored a number of hit releases and has broadened his fan base considerably. To date, his work has been licensed for CDs by the top tier of techno DJs, including among others: Josh Wink, Ricardo Villalobos, Magda and Tiefschwarz. The Colorseries CD will therefore appeal to those who were not around for the original releases and those who have discovered Donnacha's work through the CDs of other DJs or through witnessing one of his famed live appearances. Throughout 2004, the Colorseries consistently appeared in the charts of big name DJs and eventually appeared in end of year top ten lists in many publications, including The Wire magazine and The New York Times. Minimise is proud to present these tracks on CD for the first time, offering the full-spectrum sound-rainbow for your listening pleasure.
