The Lord Of Dragonspire / Kentilla

Chiptune Records are releasing the themes from The Lord Of Dragonspire and Kentilla on vinyl as a bonus for vinyl backers of their Soulless I & II Kickstarter campaign.

The release will be a 12″ maxi on black vinyl. It will be housed in a regular jacket with new artwork by Trevor Storey.

It was only available as part of the Kickstarter campaign, which ran from June 7 to July 7, 2021. It was scheduled to release in January, 2022, but have since been pushed to sometime between April-June, 2022.

Hubbard ’80

The Kickstarter campaign for Project Hubbard, which is a project of creating multiple remix and arrangement albums of Rob Hubbard music along with a book, includes a vinyl option for one of the albums.

The Hubbard 80 album is arranged by Rob Hubbard himself alongside Marcel Donné and features tracks arranged as if they were played in 1979 with modular synths, strings and horns.

The campaign launched on October 5, 2017 with a goal of £50,000 and ended on November 5, 2017 with more than £80,000 in funding.

Physical rewards were scheduled to ship out in April 2019. The whole album recording was delayed, but it is currently set to release in March, 2022.

Reformation 2

Matt Gray launched a Kickstarter for his Reformation 2 project, which included a vinyl option. The album features covers of other C64 composers’ music performed by Matt Gray.

The campaign was launched on April 8, 2017 and was succesfully funded and ended on April 30, 2017.

In late 2018 Matt Gray finished a Reformation 3 campaign that was intended to collect funds for the finishing of physical goods for Reformation/LN2 and Reformation 2.

Vinyl rewards were scheduled for a September 2018 release, but have been delayed multiple times and are currently slated for a Q1 2022 release.

Project Sidologie Revolutions

During a succesful Kickstarter campaign, for a Commodore 64 music compilation done in the style of Jean-Michel Jarre and Vangelis and created by C64Audio, backers could opt for a double vinyl option.

The release is a 2LP housed in a gatefold jacket with new artwork by Trevor Storey. It is limited to 250 numbered copies.

It was originally intended to release in February, 2016, but the entire campaign underwent some pretty hefty manufacturing delays, meaning it didn’t release until March, 2019.
