About this item

After being completely sold out on vinyl, Geoff Barrow & Ben Salisbury’s "DROKK: Music Inspired By Mega-City One" has been reissued as a special edition on double LP with beautiful new bespoke packaging and bonus material. This incredible new package is designed by Marc Bessant and features a spined ‘sombre grey’ outer sleeve with deboss and die-cut revealing the reverse board inner sleeve and vinyl label.

"DROKK" is a synth heavy score with a relentless darkness, a cold atmosphere where the tension never drops. Although it is a soundtrack of sorts, Barrow and Salisbury instinctively felt that music for MC1 should steer clear of the rich orchestration common to many contemporary film scores. Even for electronica the music is often purposefully stark and spare, with the majority of tracks created exclusively on the Oberhiem 2 Voice Synthesizer with a cameo from Beak>.


Barry says: Absolutely one of my favourite synth albums to this day, Barrow & Salisbury's DROKK is finally available again for everyone I constantly recommend it to. Brilliantly restrained atmospheres and dusty synth soundscapes perfectly capture the Dreddian atmosphere better than the original soundtrack could ever hope to (sorry Silvestri). An essential cinematic synth staple.
