About this item

Invisible Inc. follow the will of the people by pressing up some of their digitally released tracks that have come out since the label's birth.

The digital releases DD01 ("The Mamba") and DD02 ("Krokakai") came about to provide a more DJ-focused aspect of the label: dancefloor-friendly tracks that didn't wander off quite so far into the oddball, esoteric & 'psychedelic' territory of the label's primary output. Although the label deemed them to be more suited to a digital release, the masses responded and demanded the vinyl you see before you!

It's the Krokakai track that gets us underway here, "Bodhram Beat. A slo-mo cosmic number wit jagged EBM nuances, it's extroverted spoken word vocal elevates it into philosophical sonic territory that should tickle the mind's eye perfectly. Slovenian Vitorijoski's "The Voice Of Bárbaros" is next, and with its driving eastern-electronics instantly reminded us of Simple Symmetry, Mehmet Aslan, Mekine U Teksi and the great Disco Halal.

The Mamba's "Trails" is the kinda of throbbing, shuddering EBM that the dancefloor laps up right now. With its buzzing synth lines as cascading tones it's set to cause a whole withering coital snake in the seedier dens of iniquity throughout the global village.

Closing with Cantillate from the Netherlands whose album "Machines For Emotions" made waves in June and whose previous EPs have had support from Mr TC, Identified Patient, Gamma Intel and more. His slo-mo, sci-fi, tribal techno chugger "Dust To Dust" is a mesmerising synthetic scream from the depths of the psychic abyss. Slovenian Vitorijoski's "The Voice Of Bárbaros" with its driving eastern feel instantly reminded us of Simple Symmetry, Mehmet Aslan, Mekine U Teksi and the great Disco Halal.

Currently supported by: Andrew Weatherall, Thomas Von Party, Bufi, Cosmo Vitelli, Joakim, DJ Sofa, Ivan Smagghe, Nathan Gregory Wilkins, Vladimir Ivkovic, Myako on Boiler Room and more. All tracks have been (re)mastered especially for this vinyl release.
