The new Circuit3 album "siliconchipsuperstar" is now available from the Circuit3 Online Store.
"siliconchipsuperstar" is a stunning mix of synthy electropop songs all wrapped up in bleeps, beats & synthy ear candy.
Circuit3 is a siliconchipsuperstar.
This is electropop synthpop influenced by the great and the good of the classic 1978-1982 era of electronic pop.
The digital precision of the 21st century is married with the classic analog beats, drones,
arpeggiators and melody lines under a pop male vocal and lyric which takes no prisoners.
Packaged in a beautifully printed gloss laminated sleeve and pressed on luscious transparent electric blue heavyweight 180gram vinyl.
Included in the package is a CD of the album and a bonus CD of remixes. Initial copies come with Circuit3 button badges and stickers.
Wolfgang Flür (ex-Kraftwerk) collaborator iEuropean says “I am currently working on a remix for Circuit3 and had the pleasure of listening to the finished album.....wow! Best album I have heard in the past 10 years”
"It’s not every day you stumble upon a debut album that forces you to re-write your best-of-the-year list. He’s not trying to hide being influenced by the synth pioneers of the late 70s and early 80s. There are obvious references to John Foxx, Gary Numan, Thomas Dolby and many others from the Synth Britannia era. But it never crosses into plagiarism. It’s all done with an eye for detail and with a personal touch that firmly holds the ten tracks of the album together. There’s definitely no shortage of singles candidates. It’s a beautiful and well-crafted package, both musically and aesthetically, and should appeal to anyone with a soft spot for the artists who pushed the boundaries in the early days of synthpop. - Elektroskull (Sweden)
The Electricity Club said "‘siliconchipsuperstar’ is classic styled synthpop made by someone weaned on classic synthpop. This well-produced album is undoubtedly a labour of love and while there are echoes of the past like Clarke, Foxx, Jones, Numan or Dolby, the album is full of futuristic sounds that warble off and on."
“album of the year - fantastic album and I have very difficult to see any other artist to do better” - Radio Virus (Sweden)
“Take a deep breath and double-take before reading the title to Circuit3’s electro pop opus ‘Siliconchipsuperstar’. Everything about this album is wrapped in that wonderful retro electro magic. It’s ten tracks that bring you into the past and then the future, with a nod to pre-Songs Of Faith & Devotion Depeche Mode (which certainly isn’t a bad thing !) - Dan Hegarty ‘The Alternative’ RTE National Radio Ireland.)
