Limited 12” and digital

Punch Drunk, Bristol’s esteemed electronic music imprint, celebrates it’s 20th release with a strictly limited edition 12″ single.

This double A-side is also the official debut release by shadowy Bristol-based experimental electronic musician Ekoplekz. As such, it represents something of a departure for the label, for here is an artist who shuns modern digital production techniques in favour of primitive analogue devices, lo-fi cassette recorders and a spontaneous, improvised approach to composition.

Taking inspiration from ‘Radiophonic’ soundtracks, early dub reggae, krautrock and post-punk D.I.Y. experimenter’s like Cabaret Voltaire, Throbbing Gristle and Robert Rental, Ekoplekz is intent on introducing a new generation to the kind of raw eruptions of sound that first gave birth to the UK’s electronic underground over 30 years ago.

300 hand-numbered copies for the world, each sheathed in individually hand-painted sleeves.
