We thought we would take a different approach bringing this release into the world. The music industry has changed dramatically in the past few years, and even though Copy's previous albums are still moving digitally, its really hard to gauge how many people want any sort of physical release. So we thought we could use Kickstarter as a sort of "no risk pre-order" for fans. If a minimum number of people "order" vinyl of the new album here on Kickstarter then we press it up and send it to your home. If not enough people order it to meet basic pressing costs then they get their money back and still get to keep the digital download as a reward for their effort... Plus we don't press a bunch of plastic discs taking up shelf space at ADR HQ. This serves label and fans as both mail order and distro so everyone is a winner.

THE ALBUM: 
Holding cult status in Portland for nearly a decade, Copy has been crafting solid dance tracks that contain trace elements of disco, electro-pop, hip-hop, IDM, film music, kraut, and progressive rock; yet the result is always very recognizably Copy. Songs are melodic and subtle enough that they find themselves on repeat on your headphones long after the dance party has ended. Chalice Agenda, Copy's fourth full length album for Audio Dregs continues the tradition of deep analog bass with chunky, upbeat rhythms, coupled with interwoven synth melodies that weave together patterns that can be both wistful and baroque, or soaringly bright and driving. He has done remixes for Ratatat and Starfucker as well as numerous others, official and unofficial.

Risks and challenges

No risk! Even of we don't reach our monetary goal you get to keep the digital release of the album. Chalice Agenda has been recorded and mastered already. If we make over the goal we will press more records to meet demand.
