Named and shaped in loving tribute to Tintin, the fabled Belgian journalist who defined what it meant to be an adventurer in the 20th Century, Les Adventures de President Bongo is a bonafide objet d‘art.
The President‘s hard work is amply reflected in the music presented on Les Adventures de President Bongo, where he assumes the role of producer/instigator/artistic director, tasking some of modernity‘s most revered musicians with expanding their horizons and testing their limits.
Les Adventures de President Bongo is a unique work of art that will reveal itself over the next seven years, give or take, in the form of 24 LP's.
It is with great joy that I can inform you that the amazing “Shed Your Skin” album has been picked up by the respected London based record company “Erased Tapes”!
Such joyouse news, as this is exactly what we had planned out as best possible scenario with our limited (300) "LES AVENTURES DE PRESIDENT BONGO (LAPB)" vinyl series. To open up doors and help each project we release as much as we possibly can.
This will be considered as 100% success in our books.
Our "LAPB" version you already bought on Karolina Fund will still be delivered, of course, and it will include different exsclusive versions & design. A true collectors item.
As we do not want or need any conflict, promotionally or on any other platforms, and to show our support to Erased Tapes, we will postpone our limited LAPB official release to January 2018 and make it into #2 in our 24 records adventure.
We will however find the soonest possible date to send out, to you, our SUPPORTERS, the SHED YOUR SKIN / LAPB limited vinyl version, and deliver, with a smile on our faces, as early as October 2017.
I am sure you understand
Our release schedule (TBC) has therefor changed into the following:
LAPB #1 // Tilbury - Execution EP // October 2017
LAPB #2 // Högni - Shed Your Skin // January 2018
LAPB #3 // President Bongo & Óttar Sæmundsen - Quadrantes // March 2018
LAPB #4 // Sonic Deception & President Bongo - Patterns // May 2018
and so forth.. for the next 7 years.
Please keep in mind that these releases are strictly limited vinyl. 100 will be offered on our Karolina Fund platform, advertised just before each release. 100 will go into kompakt distribution and the rest we will keep for our box set, available in 7 years if the gods allow. So, please stay tuned and on your toes because.. who would want to miss out on having "Les Aventures de President Bongo" vinyl collection?
