Help us put our first music release on commemorative vinyl to launch a media label which promotes ingenuity in digital music and art.

The Plan:

We are Renegade Lights Media and we'd like to put out our first release as a label. We believe our unique and original music deserves to be put out to the public with the same meticulous attention to detail in quality of manufacturing as it was in production. We need to raise $4500 total for quality record pressing and mastering for both the digital download and vinyl record. We are trying to raise $2300 of this from Kickstarter, the rest will come from us and a possible fund-raising event in San Francisco within the next few months. We would not ask you for help if we were not also willing to help ourselves, and we think that is a good testament to our commitment.

The Know-Hows and Who-Knows:

We are well-connected to great people. Shawn Hatfield of AudibleOddities.com will be mastering our release for both vinyl and digital download. Shawn is a legendary mastering engineer, who has mastered artists such as Amon Tobin, ESKMO, and even Noam Chomsky.

The album will be a double-vinyl album pressed onto fine-quality 150-gram vinyl. It will also be available as a digital download. The digital download will include the 11 songs from the vinyl plus 3 videos, one of which will be a collaboration between Edison and CSTNG-SHDWS with a 'remix kit' carrying audio and video stems. People who buy the vinyl will also gain free access to a digital download.

Most importantly, our astoundingly talented artists, from Chicago and San Francisco, will be creating some of the finest work they've ever created to release on the album. The list of artists is as follows:

and the following video artists will be contributing video for the digital download:

A very personal Thank You from Raja The Resident Alien:

I do not ask for funding from others lightly, nor would I ever be willing to solicit funds from others for a project unless I, too, were heavily invested in it. Your support will help us to help ourselves actualize our dreams. We are all hard-working artists, struggling to stay afloat long enough so that with each sacred gasp of air above the tumultuous tide of survival, our soulful efforts can be spent on art. This release will be the inaugural launch for our network of artists to act as a professional label. Whether you call it a network, a collective, or a record label, Renegade Lights has already achieved great heights in our artistic events. Putting out a release with the same love and care will cement our foothold in the music community as a viably professional group of artists who are in this for the long-term. You will be helping us to keep doing what we're doing, get better at it, and involve more and more people. This will definitely be an accomplishment to be proud of in my life and in many others'. You will be helping to create not only something that will last, but will also be cherished, for possibly thousands of years to come. For that, and even for merely looking at this page and considering involvement in our project, I thank you from the deepest depths of my heart.

-Love,

 Raja
