Many of you will be aware that Rob Reed's second solo album "Sanctuary II" is now in pre-order for a June 10th release.

http://www.magentashopfront.com/page2.htm

Like Sanctuary I, it's very much in the style of Mike Oldfield, one of Rob's favourite artists.

To promote the album Rob recently released an EP featuring two re-mixes of the single "Marimba", taken from the album, a video of one of them can be found here:

[video=youtube;l4qyZbiDb3c]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l4qyZbiDb3c[/video]

As a special "thank you" for ongoing support from QQ members for his surround mixes, Rob has re-mixed the two versions of "Marimba" from the EP in surround and made them available as free flac downloads from his Dropbox!:banana: :banana: :banana: :banana:

They provide a great "taste" of the album itself, are presented un-mastered, straight from Rob's mixing desk and sound very nice indeed! :)

Use the link below to access the files:

As you know, Rob has an intense passion for surround as a format and has made mixes of several Magenta albums, his Kompendium and Kiama projects and Sanctaury I available as surround releases.

Sanctuary II was conceived with surround in mind and it really shows. The mix is highly discrete, very active, immersive and uses surround to enhance the musical experience.

Enjoy the freebies!

This is a truly beautiful disc. Really, if you like Tubular Bells... even a little... you will love this disc. I have listened to it probably 10 times or so now and it just gets better.

I love Rob's music videos. If anyone hasn't seen the videos he did for Santuary they are posted on another thread here in QQ for that album which I bought and have enjoyed (I need to play it again soon).

I just ordered Santuary II too. Nice reminder to post the EP download and video.

Thanks Neil and Rob!

Man, I was about to go crazy....I couldn't find any reference to my purchase of this disc in my emails....started thinking I didn't order...then I found my "receipt" email in my junk folder! :banana:

Anyway, so yeah...I pre-ordered this on April 8th.

Does anybody know what happened to the buy link? I tried both, with and without the t-shirt. Both pages are no longer there.
