About this item
Skam Records drop a welcome re-release of Boards of Canada killer 'Hi Scores'. This follows the reissue of their other seminal records by Warp in 2013.
The new edition has been re-recorded and re-mastered from the original DAT tapes and has been re-cut onto heavyweight collector’s edition vinyl.
The CD is placed in a digi-pak sleeve with some extra art and the vinyl includes a double-sided 12” poster.
The original image on the back of the sleeve is in colour. There is a spot varnish finish on the images and text alongside the usual Skam Braille sticker to give the whole package new depth and a refreshing look and feel.
Originally released in 1996, this six track EP signalled the arrival of a major force on the electronica scene. Everything you love about the BOC sound is here; crunching breaks, busy electronic infills, crystalline tones, synth lines reminiscent of the theme tunes and incidental music from 1970s Programmes for Schools and Colleges. Included are the wonderful title track 'Hi Scores', haunting 'Turquoise Hexagon Sun', electro-funker 'Nlogax', dancefloor slammer 'June 9th', sleazy, queasy 'Seeya Later' and melancholic hip hop cut 'Everything You Do Is A Balloon'.
'Hi Scores' hasn't been available since 2005, so take advantage of this limited remastered repress and grab yourself a copy of BOC history!
