Much respected musician, Banco De Gaia, (Toby Marks) will release new album, ‘Memories, Dreams, Reflections’, internationally on September 18 (Sept. 22 in North America), and will be offering streaming previews of all the tracks from the artist’s web site.
One of the UK’s leading electronic musicians, he formed Banco De Gaia with Andy Guthrie, who left for other things. His adventures in electronic music began in 1989, when he bought a sampler and recorded “Maxwell House”. He is now recognised as one of the world’s leading exponents of globally inspired electronica with a distinctive style.
In 1994 he released his first studio album, the Mercury Music Prize-nominated Maya, on Planet Dog records. This was followed in 1995 by the critically-acclaimed Last Train to Lhasa
. Both albums reached number one on the UK’s independent charts.
The new two and a half hour album will be available as a 2xCD set and as download, through all the usual outlets.
The artist observes, “We will however also be making it available sooner via our website, both for download and mail order CD. Downloads will be available from September 7 here, or you can pre-order the CD now here. Advance orders will be shipped on September 7.
