Prefix Moniker
LP | 2017 | EU | Original (Great Circles)
16,99 €*
Release:2017 / EU – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
After a not‐so‐unusual quiet period, we’re back with our first proper full‐length LP. Plasmas by Prefix Moniker is an experimental electronic release that sets the stage for future Great Circles releases oriented more toward home listening than the dancefloor.Prefix Moniker is comprised of Great Circles mainstay Jason Carr (_moonraker) and Johnny DeBlase (bassist in Zevious, Sabbath Assembly & Desertion Trio). The duo has a musical relationship that dates back almost 20 years.The remote composition of Plasmas began in 2013 with Carr residing in Berkeley, CA at the time, and DeBlase in Queens, NY. Each piece consists of arrangements of Csound instruments (DeBlase) with layered synthesizer (Carr). The curious product of this collaboration suggested to Carr and DeBlase the fourth state of matter, plasma. All of the track titles were then contributed by Jason’s physicist brother, Dr. Jerry Carr.Pre‐release response to Plasmas from musicians and label friends has been overwhelmingly positive and enthusiastic, including Karen Gwyer’s inclusion of two tracks (Inductively Coupled and Helicons) on her recent FACT mix (FACT mix 610).
THRIVE - Nested Structure

Release:2017 / EU – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
Nested Structure is the first Great Circles release from artists outside of Philadelphia. THRIVE are Tetsuya Yoshida and Hitoshi Kojima. They both grew up in the North Kanto area of Japan. They first met at the club run by Tetsuya Yoshida called SOUND A BASE NEST, which is known as having the best sound system in the North Kanto area. In 2007, the duo started their DJ / Producing unit THRIVE. Previous releases have included a split 12” with Keia Yano for Japanese label Struct, and recent solo releases by Hitoshi for Always Human Tapes and for his own label Ambivalent Deviation.This record almost didn’t happen! --- Tetsuya and Hitoshi were picking up Great Circles records in Japan and, having periodically communicated with each other about music, they sent us the Struct 12” to check out. While cleaning out the back of the car a few months later, the presumably empty record mailer was about to land inthe recycle bin when we fortunately discovered a demo CD of unreleased THRIVE material inside. We drove around listening to it and week later we agreed to release a 12”. The music on the Nested Structure 12” is dark, foreboding, even outwardly threatening. It’s hypnotic, textural and rhythmically complex.
Wolf Dem - Hydrophobia
Wolf Dem
12" | 2016 | EU | Original (Great Circles)
14,99 €*
Release:2016 / EU – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
WOLF DEM is a live electronics duo from Philadelphia, conceived in the fall of 2012 by two longtime DJs who bonded over similar musical backgrounds and a mutual desire to explore the bleeding edges of electronic music. Using both digital and analog tools and drawing on a highly diverse range of influences, WOLF DEM grew from its original concept- "what your dreams would sound like if you fell asleep in an old warehouse where someone had left a dancehall station playing on the radio"- into a focused aesthetic, at once chaotic and hypnotic, sitting at the intersection of Caribbean music, techno, noise, and field recordings. Past releases include tracks for compilations on New Low and Great Circles [GRCR-010], as well cassette releases for Vague Audio Tapes and End Result Productions – all Philly labels.---“On ‘Hydrophobia’, we've delved into the dancier side of our sound, with 4x4 kickdrums underscoring much of our trademark Caribbean-influenced rhythms. ‘Aquatic Pixellation’ is the most dancefloor-oriented track of the EP, a bright, chaotic stomper, while ‘Lethe’ is all tension and menace; the flip rolls out with the slower, glitchy almost-house of ‘Tin Procession’, culminating in ‘A Cruise Down The River Styx’, a laid-back excursion into a nightmare world of wolf howls, eerie melodies, and broken grooves.”
Chaperone - POND
12" | 2015 | UK | Original (Great Circles)
11,99 €* 14,99 € -20%
Release:2015 / UK – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
The A-side of P O N D is comprised of three slow-paced, meditative takes on techno. Samples are blended with cut tape loops, following suit from earlier Chaperone cassette releases - No Gold//Hawaii [Crisis Urbana CU-03] and Reflex/Contaminant [Vague Audio Tapes VAT-003]. Artifacts become instruments. Capstan motors seem to slow, only to catch up again. Torn speaker cones from an earlier noise session are left to flutter, without question or regret.On the B-side are three re-works by Westov Temple, Hero/Victim [of Vague Audio Tapes] and Thug Entrancer [Software], making for faster, more rhythmic versions of the originals, each one zeroing in on and exploiting specific peculiarities of Chaperone’s sound.

The Missing
12" | 2014 | UK | Original (Great Circles)
11,99 €*
Release:2014 / UK – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
Dan Trevitt, long-tenured Philly Techno DJ of the highest caliber and stalwart member of the Inciting / Great Circles crew steps up with The Missing, his first 12" for the label. Trevitt spent most of the past year holed up with a rotating arsenal of hardware in The Vacuum, a warehouse that not so long ago played host to a number of memorable parties. Machine ghosts fight for freedom, trapped in the dark of smoke, spray paint, solder and ash. But no one's going home just yet.
