Project breaks $8k, A-side tracklist of Maze compilation tape revealed

Posted by Laura Paris (Creator)

We're very excited to announce that with the flurry of exciting news and rapturous coverage of the Maze from the Village Voice, TinyMixTapes, TimeOut New York, Flavorpill, Brooklyn Vegan, and Pitchfork, we have broken $8,000 mark in funds committed, which, with our Matching Donor, means that we have less the $2,000 left to raise! Thank you for all your support & anything you can do to continue spreading the word.

In addition, we can now announce the official A-side tracklist for the huge Maze compilation, and offer a stream of the lead-in track, Jantar's haunting, nimble "Holes for Eyes." This tape is gonna blow your mind!

New Reward added! YouAreHere: The Maze Mixtape

Posted by Laura Paris (Creator)

Just in time for our final four day push, we're very excited to announce the addition of a new Backer Reward, YouAreHere: The Maze Mixtape! A massive 90-minute compilation of tracks from 24 artists playing The Maze, The Maze Mixtape is a hugely wide-ranging affair featuring all the sounds to be heard emanating from Secret Project Robot for the next 4 weeks. Ranging from the hyper-agile guitar manipulation of Hubble to the creeping, industrial experimentation of Manorexia (J.G. Thirlwell/Foetus) to the minimal disco of Black Jeans to the dreamy ambiene of Lucky Dragons, the spectrum of experimental talent on display attempts to give the listener as massive and broad an experience as the free 12-day Maze Pass currently available as a prize on Noisey, in portable form.

Click here for more info from Trouble associate Words+Dreams, who will be releasing this highly limited-edition tape, and watch this space for more updates on the design of the tape coming soon. YouAreHere: The Maze Mixtape will be available for web orders EXCLUSIVELY through this Kickstarter, and limited copies will also be sold in the Maze.

Matching Backer for all donations after the $5,000 mark!

Posted by Laura Paris (Creator)

Trouble is extremely proud to announce the addition to our project of a matching backer for all donations from $5,000 up! This means that all donations made after this project reached $5,000 of committed funding (on approx. June 23) will be matched by our generous, anonymous donor.

This is great news for two reasons: first, it signals the level of support available for arts happening on the periphery when incredible talent (all of the artists performing in the Maze) and uncompromising vision (that's us!) align with HUSTLE; and second, it means that in order to reach our funding goal, we only need as-yet-uncommitted donations up to the $10,000 mark!

As of this update, we need to raise only an additional $3,314 to reach our goal!

Another announcement with an exciting update about a new reward at the $15/20 backer level coming tonight! Stay tuned!
