After being completely sold out on vinyl, Geoff Barrow and Ben Salisbury’s Drokk: Music Inspired By Mega-City One is reissued as a special edition on double LP with beautiful new bespoke packaging and bonus material. This incredible new package is designed by Marc Bessant and features a spined ‘sombre grey’ outer sleeve with deboss and die-cut revealing the reverse board inner sleeve and vinyl label.
Drokk is a synth heavy score with a relentless darkness, a cold atmosphere where the tension never drops. Although it is a soundtrack of sorts, Barrow and Salisbury instinctively felt that music for MC1 should steer clear of the rich orchestration common to many contemporary film scores. Even for electronica the music is often purposefully stark and spare, with the majority of tracks created exclusively on the Oberhiem 2 Voice Synthesizer with a cameo from Beak>.
