Hybrid-Vinyl 12" Picture-Disc
Limited edition of 300 copies!
Volume 8 in Dekorder’s series of highly limited Hybrid-Vinyl 12“ releases. It comes out simultaneously with Vol. 9 (Le Révélateur). Previous entries in the series had been exclusive releases by Pye Corner Audio, Experimental Audio Research, Excepter, Black To Comm, Ensemble Economique, Kemialliset Ystävät and Alien Radio.
Hybrid-Vinyl is a newly devised combination of a Picture-Disc on one side and a regular vinyl release on the other. The audio will be cut into the black vinyl side to utilise the superior audio quality of classic vinyl (compared to the often weaker sounding picture disc pressings).
