Audika Records quietly celebrates it’s ten year anniversary with a revised artwork edition of Arthur Russell’s seminal classic, ‘World Of Echo’ on CD in an edition of 500. The packaging is loosely based on the original LP cover art from 1986 now housed in a tri-fold digipak with a rare image of Arthur (and same liner notes + music as previous edition). Available from July 16.
“In outer space you can’t take your drums- you take your mind” –Arthur Russell 1987
“This is what is left when the Beat has eaten itself, when the crunch of hip-hop has crunched itself to dust. “World Of Echo” is an orbit of resonance, a giant, subterranean repository of Dub” – David Stubbs/Melody Maker 1987
