Circle of Dust
, the iconic ’90s Industrial project from Klayton (best known as Celldweller) returns with the 25th Anniversary Mix of the 1995 debut album track “Onenemy”. This marks the first single from an upcoming 25th Anniversary Edition of the album, featuring all-new ‘mixes’ of the tracks, resurrection on original gear with separate audio tracks for the first time in over 20 years. Each song from the album will also get new remixes from modern artists. Available from indie label FiXT.

“In late 2019, I stumbled across a floppy disk with SYSEX backups of my original Alesis D4 drum module and E-MU Proteus 1 sound module. For the first time in 25 years, I realized I had the ability to reconnect everything from my original 1995 Circle of Dust album. I imported my ADAT recordings and went to work on mixing the songs from the ground up, excited that I finally had the ability to make these mixes sound like I heard them in my head in 1995. After seeing some of your positive reactions to my Instagram stories as I was working, I decided to officially release the new mixes for those of you that might enjoy them as well.

Don’t worry, the 2016 remasters will remain online as-is. :)” – Klayton says.

Scandroid, the modern Synthwave project from Detroit based artist/producer Klayton, best known for his multi-genre project Celldweller/Circle of Dust will release a new single ‘Phoenix’ on Sept. 18th.

“Phoenix” was born for cloudless days careening down an open highway in a rented T-top — come on, you’re not going to abuse your own car, are you? Punch it! – Loudwire

Scandroid’s signature style collides with old school metal on “Phoenix,” a blazing piece of guitar-driven music that rocks the foundation of the artist’s discography. This is Scandroid through and through, but not like you’ve heard him before, as crunchy riffs and soaring guitar solos deliver a high-octane listening experience. With its blend of ‘80s heavy metal and cyberpunk-infused synthwave, “Phoenix” is one more example of Scandroid’s versatile songwriting ability. Continue reading »

When the album “Machines of Our Disgrace” released in 2016, the first new album from Circle of Dust in nearly 20 years, many believed this to be a one-time return for Klayton (picture) to release under the moniker.

‘Dust to Dust’ will be released December 1st.  Continue reading »
