1998 ISAN recorded 'Beautronics'. Long before the term Electronica popped up, ISAN worked in the Interface of Ambient and IDM. Everyone familar to their compilation of early tracks ('Clockwork Menagerie') probably knows about the early ISAN magic. Now 'Beautronics' gets a re-release, which we think is overdue! For the first time ever there will be a pressing on Vinyl. And that Vinyl (that comes with new Artwork, gatefold cover & free mp3 inside) will see its first appearance tomorrow – within Record Store Day (this saturday)!

We have launched some playlists on Spotify for you. One is hosted by the head of the office: Thomas Morr, another one by ISAN. Then there's one, that is done by the guys from our webshop anost, we have a playlist that give you an overview of our recent releases and at least there's our very own 'History Channel' where you can find selected beauties from our backcatalogue! So come on and subscribe! (There will be more playlists, so stay tuned!)

We told you about a series of eBooks by Scott Heim earlier. Back then the books have been a kickstarter project, now the first one is out. Musicians, artists and journalists wrote about their first contact with the Cocteau Twins. Among others, Antony of ISAN has contributed here. The eBook is now available via Barnes & Nobles or Amazon!

ISAN's easter present is a fine mixtape, that we are happy to present today already: You can stream it via mixcloud! It's a long-distance-ping-pong-mix by Antony & Robin, and it features Grimes, Baths, Zomby, Sugarcubes, Siouxsie & The Banshees and many more...in case you're Scottish you can use it as a warm-up for one of the ultra-rare ISAN gigs, that will take place on Sunday at the Berkeley Suite, Glasgow!
Also ISAN contributed to a book-project by Scott Heim (who is known as the author of 'Mysterious Skin) & which is called "The First Time I Heard...". Planned are five books, in which musicians & writers talk about their first listening experiences with David Bowie, The Cocteau Twins, Kate Bush, The Smiths and Joy Division/New Order. Every of these artists get their own book! Well hopefully, because it's a Kickstarter-Project, and that means crowdfunding! So if you're intrested, watch the trailer and pre-order the books! Don't forget: Pre-orders are necessary, otherwise these books won't be printed!
