Celer
Shima

Will Long is an American artist living in Tokyo who has been releasing music for over a decade and also runs the Two Acorns label. 'Shima', his latest release as Celer, is comprised of two long-form analogue ambient/drone tracks constructed from B-side loops created around the same period as Celer's 'Jima' album which was released on the I, Absentee label in 2015. 'Shima' however was only actually recorded later in 2016 using the tape loops, reel-to-reel, reverse reverb, notch filter and digital delay. The album comes beautifully presented on fledgeling label Gailur.

Long Trax 2

Will Long, makes luscious ambient drone under the name Celer, but he also makes gorgeous deep house under his own name (sometimes also in collaboration with DJ Sprinkles). Here he presents his second full-length album of politically charged dancefloor cuts, Long Trax 2. This CD edition on Smalltown Supersound features all six of the new Long Trax.

Celer
Memory Repetitions

Coming to a letterbox or collection depot near you: it’s Celer, the reliably ambient and ambiently reliable work of Tokyo resident Will Long - someone whose surname accurately describes his discography. This is a muscular five-parter - one lengthy part per disc - aimed to reflect back on the Celer story so far. Highly recommended to fans of Celer.

Celer
Nacreous Clouds

By way of celebrating its ten-year anniversary we have a lovely remastered reissue package of Celer's 2008 album Nacreous Clouds. Recorded by Will Long and Danielle Baquet in response to inspiration in the form of a peculiar meteorological phenomenon: polar stratospheric clouds. These bright and vivid formations can be observed from below -- usually found at polar extremities, at very low temperatures high above the Earth. Long's third album was recorded both digitally and using tape loops. CD remastered by Stephan Matthieu and with new artwork in a 4-panel, reverse board ecopack, on Two Acorns.

Yellow / Ivory / Rust (Long Trax EP 3)

The third of three long form collaborations between original odd couple DJ Sprinkles and Will Long (Celer). These journeys into deep house have a basic home grown feel to them with simple beats accompanying drawn out synth notes and samples slathered on without a care in the world. It isn't sophisticated but still draws out the atmospheres we expect from such heavyweights of relaxed, lengthy music.  

Will Long
Sallow / Pine

Will Long’s politically engaged deep house music is back in the form of his new album Long Trax 2, which continues the habit of mixing samples from the likes of Barack Obama with meditative, melancholy pads and beats. Sallow / Pine is one of three 12” versions of the album’s material, featuring two cuts in fully DJ-ready format. On Smalltown Supersound.

Features ‘That’s The Way It Goes’ and ‘ We Tend To Forget’.

Royal Blue / Mustard

Will Long’s politically engaged deep house music is back in the form of his new album Long Trax 2, which is released in full on CD and also in parts across three 12”s.

Will Long
Long Trax

Will Long here compiles materials that have crept out on 12” releases over the last few months, in which our hero has explored the possibilities of deep house made with minimal resources. As on the 12”s, Long Trax also presents the overdubs that DJ Sprinkles has made of each track. Double CD release on Comatonse Recordings, with a poster.

Celer
On or Near the Surface

Will Long returns under his Celer moniker for this release -- in fact it's a bonus track from his 'Alcoves' album. On or Near the Surface is representative of Long's shadow-filtered work as Celer; sun-dappled ambient reigns supreme, chords refracted as shafts of light penetrating cool, clear shallows at a lake's edge. However, all is not as it first seems... On 'pale white' 7" square flexi.

Celer
Alcoves

Celer is Will Long’s long-running ambient drone project, a reliable source of pleasing soundscapes and luscious minimalism. Alcoves finds our Will in a particularly watery mood, mixing synths and field recordings together with sublime precision. Alcoves is a cassette release on Cellar Door Tapes.

Celer
In the End You'll Just Disappear

Fair enough. This was made by Will Long in Tokyo as part of an installation of three speakers facing the centre of the room. Each speaker played a different part (high end or low end) which meant that the music should be perfectly mixed if you stood in the centre of the room. Now you can hear the whole thing on your very own CD player. 

Celer
Two Days and One Night

Ambient musics can sometimes be accused of being too abstracted from human experience and emotion, but nobody could make that criticism of Celer’s new album. Two Days And One Night is inspired by the death by drowning of Celer’s great uncle in Tunisia: a retracing of his steps during his final days (and night). The depth of feeling and the depth of sound swirl together majestically...  Out on Sequel.

Celer
Another Blue Day

Celer is Will Long’s long-running ambient drone project, a reliable source of pleasing soundscapes and luscious minimalism. Another Blue Day, which seems to be alluding to Brian Eno with it’s title, is a good-sized slab of rich Celer magic, released on Jason Lescalleet’s reliable Glistening Examples imprint.

Celer
Callisto

Deep, deep ambience from Will Long’s project Celer. New album Callisto draws inspiration from two memories of ‘seeing beyond the stars’, a suitably heavyweight setting for a suite of dream-drift and space-shimmer like this one. One long forty-six minute track will draw you all the way in. CD release on Two Acorns.
