M.A.N. - M.A.N.

HEMP019 - originally released 2006

More spoken-word/ambient action, but a different, more beat-oriented project this time, with lovely, hypnotic soundscapes that call to mind the heady days of early 90's IDM and trance. Includes the track "Narnia" which went on to be extensively remixed.

Big In Albania - The Eighties Movie Soundtrack Disaster (Director's Cut)

HEMP017 - originally released in 2006

Pour the wine, because Big In Albania is cutting the cheese. 80's cheese, that is. Get your Gen-X-y on with this (ahem) tribute to some of the (cough) masterpieces of Reagan/Thatcher-era cinema. True to form, there's even a bonus video.

Solypsis - Dénouement 1998-2008

HE! Extra - released on Vukzid

"If we follow the title as our guideline then this release is the definitive ending of Chicago based James Miller's output as Solypsis. Gathering together the best and worst of his work across two zip files and also including a bonus collection of selected remixes from various compilation and physical releases. You may also wish to download "one week without the internet" and though this looks like the end for the Solypsis project i am sure and hope James will continue to record more audio under various new guises." - Vukzid
