Ekca Liena Updates

Daniel W J Mackenzie aka Ekca Liena has been keeping himself extremely busy recently!

Not only was there the recent re-issue of his sold out debut album here on Dead Pilot which featured a bunch of remixes from the likes of Aidan Baker, Clem Leek and more, he has also just completed and released a split release with A Death Cinematic through the wonderful Small Doses label!

Daniel has also recently self released an album of piano material, which is a must listen and produced a mix for Arctic Circle Radio

PS. You can now stream all the remixes from “Slow Music For Rapid Eye Movement” here and stream the rest of the Ekca Liena catalogue

Mountainhood, Millipede, Message to Bears

Pre orders for Mountainhood – America 2 will begin shipping tomorrow and then will be making it’s way to our stockists in a few weeks time. Don’t forget, orders from the Dead Pilot store come wrapped in kraft paper, with an individual photograph and 2 badges. Those extras will not be found with copies else where!

The third album from Millipede aka Joseph Davenport is now available for pre order! Mastered by Lasse Marhaug, “Realms” is huge! CD version is limited to 200 copies, with a limited coloured vinyl version planned for towards the end of the year.

Test Pressings for One Man Team Dance – Set Menu” have finally been approved and so pre orders should begin shipping in a few weeks time. I’m eternally grateful to your patience on that one.

And finally, soon we’ll be launching an IndieGoGo campaign for a bunch of awesome Message to Bears stuff. We’ll be re-mastering and re-issuing the long sold out EP1 again on both CD and vinyl and also be releasing the new album “Folding Leaves” on both CD and vinyl as well. The IndieGoGo campaign will feature a load of neat extras and bonus stuff that will only be available via the campaign, so keep your eyes peeled on that.

Many thanks for all your continued support.
