Animated internet sensation Savlonic have been working away for years on their own brand of electronic musical magic. A slow drip of acclaimed singles has so far been their trademark.
But that ends here, with a full length album of classics, new songs and remixes especially for your ears. Yeah we could do this on one format, but why stop there? We're doing 6 panel Digipaks, picture discs and stunning red vinyl all with original artwork. Founder members Roscoe T, Evangeline D'isco and Kandi Flauss are in the studio already, working on the brand new tracks.
With your hot cash injection we can make this album a reality, and you can get yourself a piece of animated musical history. This is how it's going to break down
- Studio fees £500
- Remix fees £1000
- Mastering approx £500
- Digital distribution fees £100
- Digipak printing and manufacture £2000
- Manufacture of Red Vinyl and picture disc £3500
- Original Artwork £1500
- Postage and Distribution £2500
These are the main production costs of building the album how we want it to be built, before you factor in any extra merch, band fees and Kickstarter fees. So yes, it's going to be tight. But it's got to be right. Obviously any extra fees will help us spend a little more on mastering.
New songs are already written and ready for recording. The old singles didn't feature the amazing vocal talents of Kandi Flauss, so all singles are being re-recorded with her backing vocal which sounds truly haunting and amazing. We're also in the process of selecting a couple of outstanding remixes to add to the pot. Literally thousands of people have made remixes of Savlonic, we need to make sure we get the cream of the crop, so it'll take a while but again, it has to be right.
An overspend of £1000 will see us perform a rare online gig for your eyes only. Overspend fees will go towards studio hire costs for the gig. We might even invite some of you along. Why not?
This is something we've wanted to do for a long time and your help will make it a reality.
If we can raise £30,000 that means we will be able to make another animation for one of the new songs. Even more money means we get get even more animations. Something we'd obviously love to do.
Probably the first one we'd animate would be this one:
Risks and challenges
We've spoken extensively with our distributor with the aim to make this go as smoothly as possible. Shipping will no doubt be the biggest challenge of this.
There's a lot of different sections to this which could cause delays but we hope our months spent researching the different aspects will pay off.
Mastering and pressing could potentially take a little longer than expected as test runs need to be created to make sure it's all running smoothly.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
