    Trance stars made nothing from massive hit..

    Taken from InTheMix



    Stuart Matheson from 90s trance stars Binary Finary chatted to Skrufff
    this week about the release of the group's first ever album The Lost
    Tracks and revealed that the band earned virtually no money at all from
    their worldwide club smash 1998.

    The crossover epic trance anthem was released several times by EMIšs
    commercial club label Positiva becoming one of the biggest club records
    of the 90s, though Staurt said the whole experience was so bad, that he
    quit the music business altogether.

    "A couple of bad decisions were made starting with the original contract
    we signed, which wasnšt the best one, to be honest," he admitted, "The
    contract was signed before the track went big but we realised really
    quickly that our hands were already tied in many respects. And Binary
    Finary was originally made up of four members and there were some
    internal struggles going on within the group which forced me to leave-
    I'd had enough. It was a strain to leave because I did feel I was
    missing out on opportunities but I had to for my own sanity."

    Taking a day job as a webmaster he even ended up starring on reality TV
    show Faking It, trying to pass himself off as a surfer ("I was websurfer
    who became a, very poor, body surfer," he laughed) before putting the
    band back together will fellow Binary producer Stuart Matheson. The duo,
    meanwhile, continued making tracks together throughout the eight year
    period and have recently returned to the music business full time to
    release The Lost Tracks. The album comprises 16 tracks including their
    own Binary Finality remix of 1998.

    "We're now as back in the music business as fully as we can be but wešre
    taking a relaxed attitude, we're not going to flog ourselves. We're not
    desperate for it but we still feel there's a lot of dammed good music in
    us both and we want to release it, " Stuart continued.

    "We had more problems with a few labels recently and the reason this
    album is happening is an off shoot of those issues, we got messed around
    by a few labels who signed tracks then basically changed their minds
    after three or four months, so we're releasing this album ourselves."

    And that's how we plan to continue. We might not get the same exposure
    but at least we're in control. And we can release whatever we want," he
    added.

    The Lost Tracks is out now (as a digital download release only).

    This is how many things go. Not enough time or interest in the finer details and then you either get no money or you're cheated at the end.

    An example is Leonard Cohen and why he started touring again some years back: http://www.nytimes.com/2009/02/25/ar...ic/25cohe.html
