    Q: Why buy CDs? A: CDs sound better than vinyl!
    Let's face it, one of the great myths in the audio world is that vinyl sounds better than CDs. It’s absolutely not true. Compared to vinyl, CDs are able to produce a much wider dynamic range and more bass. Plus they don't crackle or skip (unless scratched). So enjoy!

about

British post-industrial / ambient group O Yuki Conjugate arrives on Other Voices Records with CD and Cassette run of their previously CD-only 1995 release Equator. Coming four years after their lauded Peyote release, the group split and reformed into their Mk II phase with the two original members Roger Horberry and Andrew Hulme, along with Malcolm McGeorge, Dan Mudford & Pete Woodhead (who later went on to form Sons Of Silence on Leaf Label).

Making use of the emergent technology of the early 90’s, Equator was one of the first albums to be mixed with digital equipment, weaving together a blend of studio, live and location recordings to create their own deeply immersive, enveloping soundscapes. Brooding atmospheres unfold underneath a wide range of ethnic percussion and deep, meditative basslines - existing in a unique cross-section of Hassell inspired 4th world mystery, Industrial landscapes, and the rich middle-eastern projections pioneered by Muslimgauze.

It's a deeply hypnotic work that joins the dots between the late 80's industrial scene and the smoked-out chill-out rooms of the '90s, released on the brilliantly haphazard Staalplaat label who ensured O Yuki Conjugate remained total obscurity in their home country. Now revisited, this expanded edition features an additional 30 minutes of material, together with new glorious artwork from artist and actor Frederick Schimmelschmidt.

Great for fans of MUSLIMGAUZE, PAUL SCHUTZE, ZOVIET★FRANCE, RAPOON

They didn't sound like anything else at that time. Sure, some tribal rhythms one could connect to the world of Muslimgauze, an influence of Jon Hassel's fourth world music (check), but yet they added a touch of weirdness, abstract music and still one could see their background from the world of industrial music, not always aiming to please.
