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.
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 to release under the moniker.
“Machines of Our Disgrace” marks the 5th full-length studio album for industrial music pioneer Circle of Dust, after a near 20 year hiatus. Created by artist/producer Klayton, best known for his multi-genre project Celldweller, Circle of Dust returns to Klayton’s industrial roots with metal riffs, pulsing electronics and catchy songwriting.
