ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
On RECEPTORS' debut 7inch vinyl from 2005, "Controller Array EP", Jeremy Kolosine utilized 8-bit Game Boys, Atari 2600, NES vocoded midi-stylophone and Commodore 64/Sidstation. The EP is now available for download, including the 'locked-groove' hidden final vinyl track.
From 2003 thru 2011. RECEPTORS, led by electronic artist/producer/gearhead Jeremy Kolosine, aka Ksine(founder of electro pioneers Futurisk, and 8-bit/micro-chipmusic vanguards 8-Bit Operators, among other projects) stood equipped with GameBoys & Nintendo DS (running mainly the LSDJ, Nanoloop, and Korg DS-10 cartridges) but also included Sidstation, occasional CircuitBends, and vocoded 12-bit stylophonic walkstations. Receptors performed at NYC's legendary Blip Fest, CMJ and Bent Festivals, showcased at Austin, Texas' SXSW Festival and Iceland's Airwaves Fest, and in 2007 Jeremy Kolosine performed the first ever circuit-bent performance(Leopold Mozart's "Toy Symphony")with a full symphony orchestra (The Roanoke Symphony). The debut 7" EP "Controller Array" was released in 2005. In 2007 the critically acclaimed ReceptorsMusic compilation "8-Bit Operators - The Music of Kraftwerk" was released on Astralwerks/EMI (Check out the Receptors interview on National Public Radio). That same year, The DFA's James Murphy commissioned Receptors to produce a set of unique Real ringtones for LCD Soundsystem's "Sound Of Silver" album release. The ringtunes , which are re-interpretations of all 9 tracks on the hit album, were arranged and created in 8-bit fashion on the gameboy synth. In 2008 Receptors released 2 albums of tracks produced on the Nintendo DS, including the first full-length release by an artist on the Korg DS-10 titled "groKwork". In 2009, Jeremy completed construction of "21st Century Retro-Futurists", an audio/video installation for The Taubman Museum, and joined the Blip Fest Europe / 8bitpeoples tour of Denmark and Poland (Era New Horizon Film Festival). On 09/09/09 the Kolosine-curated 8-Bit Operators' "WANNA HLD YR HANDHELD" Beatles Tribute was released. Receptors closed out 2009 with the release of the USER Deluxe EP on the world-renowned 8bitpeoples chip-music label. In 2010, the Handheld Heroes label released Receptors' final album SLEEPER CD/DL again featuring tracks utilizing solely the Nintendo DS / Korg DS-10. In 2011 Jeremy Kolosine embarked on an analog/ digital/ multi-instrumental compositional project intended for release in 2012.
