Circle of Dust made its triumphant return in 2016 as Klayton regained control of the entire Circle of Dust catalog, re-releasing each album (Self-Titled, Brainchild, Metamorphosis, Disengage and beloved side-project Argyle Park) with remastered audio and completely re-imagined art. Later the same year, with the project fully resurrected, the new album Machines of Our Disgrace was released followed by a feature-length documentary, Full Circle: The Birth, Death & Rebirth of Circle of Dust, and full-length remix album alt_Machines in 2018.
Now, Klayton has once again dug into the archives and revived the next wave of Circle of Dust nostalgia.
Circle of Dust album will return once again in 2019, making it’s first ever release on vinyl, and will be accompanied with a full round of digital rarities, as well as the release of a brand new remix of "Nothing Sacred" from industrial producer and long-time FiXT friend, Sebastian Komor. In preparation of the remix, Klayton went even deeper into the original song files and is making 60+ remix stems from the track
available on the FiXT Remix Stems Store to coincide with the release. Sebastian Komor channels Circle of Dust’s enigmatic ‘90s industrial sound while forging a trail all it’s own with heavy, stabbing guitars, pulsing drums and intense programming for a hard-hitting electronic-rock remix.
The 1992/1995 self-titled Circle of Dust album marked the beginning of Klayton’s legacy (Celldweller, Scandroid & Owner/Founder of FiXT) as he began his exploration into the unknown. The album gives listeners a glimpse of Klayton’s earliest experiments with sci-fi inspired industrial & electronic-rock. Never one to be held back by the limitations of the technology available to him, the entire album was created using a Mac Classic with 1mb of system RAM and a 40mb hard drive along with an Ensoniq EPS 16+ mono sampler.
The album has been meticulously remastered with modern sonic precision, improving upon the sound of the original tracks and breathing new life into them. Now, pressed in a haunting shade of royal blue, the album makes a second resurrection: this time in vinyl.
