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. Now in late 2017, “Dust to Dust,” marks the first new single from Circle of Dust‘s forthcoming 6th full-length, yet to be titled, studio-album.

‘Dust to Dust’ continues where “Machines of Our Disgrace” left off, as a modern industrial assault of thrash metal riffs, cryptic audio samples, aggressive vocals, blasting beats and memorable hooks.

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

Scandroid, the modern Synthwave project from Detroit based artist/producer Klayton, best known for his multi-genre project Celldweller/Circle of Dust, is Klayton’s love letter to the 80s. The music video for ‘Eden’ can be watched below.

The debut, self-titled Scandroid album is released on Nov. 10th. and features 15 tracks, ranging from the driving instrumental energy of ‘Destination Unknown,’ to melodic vocal tracks like ‘Awakening With You,’ ‘Aphelion,’ and ‘Neo-Tokyo,’ rounded out with the cinematic epics ‘2517’ & ‘Singularity.’ As a child of the 80’s, Klayton has also included a cover of the classic Tears For Fears song ‘Shout,’ that he has been patiently waiting to cover since he first heard the song on U.S. radio in 1985. The digital album concludes with a bonus remix from synthwave artist Waveshaper. The 72 minute album depicts themes of a cyberpunk future where humans and sentient robots struggle to find a connection in their dystopian world. Continue reading »

Electronic-Rock artist/producer Celldweller is back with a new single, ‘Electric Eye.’ This drum & bass track, full of chugging guitar stabs, aggressive synths and intense/melodic vocal hooks, showcases Klayton’s (Celldweller/Circle Of Dust) inimitable multi-genre sound. The video can be seen below.

Klayton comments: “In recent months I have been wanting to find a break in my schedule to work on a new Drum & Bass inspired track. I wasn’t even sure it would end up becoming a Celldweller tune, but in this case it did. ‘Electric Eye’ was born from experiments with beats and a bass sample I made from my original 1973 Minimoog Model D Synth and evolved into a full blown Celldweller track. Enjoy!” Continue reading »
