It must have been early 2016 when one our members introduced us to a young Russian beat maker who was very keen to join our little family and release his debut album that he was currently working on. After hearing the demo and having a few productive conversations it was a no brainer that this album, and more so it's creator would make a nice new addition to the family. So in October of 2016 'Maple Syrup' had his concept album and debut project Vacation released on Millennium Jazz Music via digital and cassette tape.
Since it's release the album has sold out of the cassettes and continues to find new listeners and supporters who have asked for it to be pressed on 12" vinyl. We would love to do that for you all, and of course make it a dream come true for young Maple Syrup to have his first appearance on a record. The thing is where so many have supported the album already have we missed the boat, so to speak?? ..no pun intended!
So it's like this... this campaign serves as a simple pre-order for those who really want a hard copy of the album, at the same time we'll be bringing more copies of Maple Syrup's Vacation LP into the physical world but this time with a limited run of records and making it a great start to the year for him and his music.
The pre-order will be £16 which covers the record for £12 and £4 for shipping for everybody (we'll pay the rest for EU and Worldwide). All funds collected will go on the production of the album, a re-master for it to be prepared and sent to the pressing plant, and for shipping costs once it's ready. We already have the artwork and labels being edited for the record sleeve and labels as we speak. Now let's see if the album was meant to be on a 12" afterall...
Thanks for your time!! MJM
