In 2010 IBMCs began to release music online as an org, although many members and affiliates had already put out numerous projects, 2012 was the first time the logo appeared on a record, for which we have the trailblazing George Fields to thank, his From the Sticks debut now being recognized as a classic instrumental album of its year.
George has since released his “Glad To Meet You” album to high acclaim (2015), and is about to drop the follow up to FTS, Beyond Realm, which is extremely highly anticipated by lovers of refined production worldwide (Under The Sun Records) and will be up for order on April 1st. Here is a taster:
