Mission Tapes Vol. I
The GulfFire
Catalogue Number
Release Date
March 13, 2020

Following the acclaimed ‘Co Intel Pro’ LP under his S>>D monicker on CPU Records in 2018, producer Sean Dorris presents this collection of imagined soundtracks as The GulfFire for Fonolith.

Recorded between 2005 and 2019, ‘Mission Tapes Vol. I’ is a true love letter to the synth-driven futuristic film themes of the VHS era. Crafted at Sean’s own ‘Devil’s Tower’ studio using Sequential Circuits machines and Roland MC-500 sequencer, these 14 vividly evocative themes accurately channel the pulsing analogue menace and sci-fi dystopian edginess that characterised so many ‘80s video and film scores.


"Each of these 14 vignettes contains an authentic period charm, built up from vintage equipment and a mostly forgotten approach to dramatic tension. The militaristic drum machine rhythm, ice-frozen melody and squelchy bassline of ‘Balance Of Power’ is an easy highlight." Mat Smith - Electronic Sound
