C418 - Minecraft Volume Beta - 2LP
2 LPs - Lenticular Jacket
As C418, composer and producer Daniel Rosenfeld designs sounds to resonate in both physical and pixelated realms. Best known for his original soundtracks to "Minecraft", the single best-selling video game of all time, he's developed a discography of instrumental music over the last decade that traverses electronic pop patterns, neo-classical dreamscapes, and sparse ambient motifs.
The latter element has broken from the "8-bit" pigeonholing of game music and earned him accolades that reference artists like Erik Satie (The Guardian) and Brian Eno (VICE). Now, following several restocks of "Alpha" to fervent fan response, it is time for the soundtrack's second installment to shine. For the legion of listeners and players to, at long last, have "Minecraft Volume Beta" in tangible formats. The double LP arrives in May 2020 on standard black and fire splatter colored vinyl, available in regular sleeves as well an exclusive limited-edition jacket with a lenticular cover which gives depth and movement to its 3D-rendered image.
