Circle of Dust made its triumphant return in 2016 as Klayton regained control of the entire Circle of Dust catalog, re-releasing each album (Self-Titled, Brainchild, Metamorphosis, Disengage and beloved side-project Argyle Park) with remastered audio and completely re-imagined art. Later the same year, with the project fully resurrected, the new album Machines of Our Disgrace was released followed by a feature-length documentary, Full Circle: The Birth, Death & Rebirth of Circle of Dust, and full-length remix album alt_Machines in 2018.
Now, Klayton has once again dug into the archives and revived the next wave of Circle of Dust nostalgia. The Self-Titled Circle of Dust album will return once again in 2019, making its first-ever release on vinyl, and will be accompanied with a full round of digital rarities, as well as the release of a brand new remix of “Nothing Sacred” from industrial producer and long-time FiXT friend, Sebastian Komor, along with making the remix stems to the original track available for purchase as well.
The 1992 self-titled Circle of Dust album marked the beginning of Klayton’s legacy (Celldweller, Scandroid & Owner/Founder of FiXT) as he began his exploration into the unknown. The album gives listeners a glimpse of Klayton’s earliest experiments with sci-fi inspired industrial & electronic-rock. Never one to be held back by the limitations of the technology available to him, the entire album was created using a Mac Classic with 1mb of system RAM and a 40mb hard drive along with an Ensoniq EPS 16+ mono sampler.
The album has been meticulously remastered with modern sonic precision, improving upon the sound of the original tracks and breathing new life into them. Now, pressed in a haunting shade of royal blue, the album makes a second resurrection: this time in vinyl.
