ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
After the eruption of Mount Saint Helens in 1980, Deceptikon was born out of the ash and dried magma of Northwest Cascadia. Recently relocated to Tokyo via Seattle, he spends his time making music for the future, a soundtrack for retro-minded space travelers and skiff-jumpers from the 23rd dimension. The Deceptikon Industries studio, orchestrated by mastermind Zack Wright, is the basis for all operations. The first Deceptikon 12\", released on Merck Records in 2004, was sold out only four months after the initial pressing.

Birds Of Cascadia is a ultra-limited edition handmade CD released in conjunction with a tour of Japan. It consists of remixes done for other artists, b-sides, rarities, and unreleased tracks. The physical CDs are long sold out and going for high prices on eBay, so if you want to hear it, digital is now the only option.

Artists remixed by Deceptikon in this next-level collection include fellow Merck artists Machinedrum, Blamstrain, and Tiki Obmar. Also featured is a previously unreleased remix of Direkt Jive from the Detroit Underground imprint.

Birds Of Cascadia was recorded in home studios throughout the Cascadian region, primarily in Seattle, Olympia, and Vancouver, Canada. The album is a collection of ten songs, destroyed and rebuilt in the Deceptikon Industries studios with the support of heavy caffeine consumption and sleepless nights.

Airports and rental cars are almost like a second home to Deceptikon - he has toured extensively throughout the US, Canada, and Japan. He has shared the stage with Funkstorung, Daedelus, Richard Devine, Machine Drum, Lusine, edIT, Dose One, Blue Scholars, Truckasaurus, Proem, Deru, Safety Scissors, [A]pendics Shuffle, Books On Tape, Nudge, Strategy, Twine, Solenoid, and Brothomstates (among many others).


Critical praise for Deceptikon:

\"Dilla comparisons might be in order ... a track like \"Almond Groves\" has all the organic warmth and grit, in addition to the subtle synthetic undertones, of a Ummah-era Jay Dee production.\" -- Okayplayer.com

\"As Portland\'s first laptop battle winner, Deceptikon has a winning combination--solid beats, cool sounds, and interesting songwriting. His ability to keep heads bobbing with hiphop rooted breakbeats and a large palate of sounds helped him win the battle; these are both what makes his debut full length so hot.\" -- The Portland Mercury

\"If Lost Subject doesn\'t make you a believer of Deceptikon, then his brilliant live shows recently featured in the Raiders Of The Lost Crunk tour - as well as his status as Portland\'s first laptop battle winner - surely will.\" -- Igloomag

\"A delicious amalgam of hip-hop, soul, and electropop.\" -- Textura.org
