Lots of stuff going on in the Binary Universe. The last few months have seen the release of two records from Binary artists, a collaboration with French Label Valerie, and a Japanese physical release for Keenhouse. The fall is on its way and with it the launch of Binary Records with our first release, Binary Presents: LA Lights.
Binary To Release Debut Record – Binary Presents: LA Lights on October 13th
We couldn’t be more proud to announce the release of our first record, Binary Presents: LA Lights on October 13th. The culmination of the last year of building our roster and crafting songs, this record encapsulates everything Binary, from the budding dreamwave scene in Los Angeles, to the gritty underbelly of the youth in Southern California. Featuring songs from each of our 7 artists, LA Lights’ will be available digitally worldwide through Believe Digital (FRA).
To support the record, we’ve enlisted our favorite producers to remix the singles that we’ll be releasing. We are quite excited for remixes from Junkie XL, Grum, Russ Chimes, Diamond Cut, and many of our favorite up-and-coming producers. Watch for the singles and the remixes, which will be released in the first week of October.
We’d also like to take this opportunity to announce we’re working with InkTank PR on this record. They’ve been great so far, and share the common goal to get this music out to as many people as possible.
Here is the first press release for LA Lights.

Keenhouse – Civic Transit
To support Keenhouse‘s 2008 release, Civic Transit, we’ve decided to release a second single, the title track from the album. We enlisted the help of standout Valerie artist Anoraak, as well as Binary artist Fabian for remixes. Various blogs (BigStereo, Too Many Sebastians), took quite the liking to the tracks and album, and we’d like to share with you guys the two great remixes for the track.
Keenhouse – Civic Transit (Anoraak LAX Remix)
Keenhouse – Civic Transit (Fabian Remix)
Both of these remixes, as well as remixes from Short Circuit and Alfa, have also been featured on a special bonus disc, released digitally and physically in Japan by Thistime Records.
We’d like to thank everyone that’s become a part of the growing Binary Family. The last year has been an uphill battle, but we’re quite proud to have assembled a roster of acts that we truly love. We believe our future looks bright, and we owe a lot to those that believed in us and stuck by us in the early going. Thank you!
