DMX KREW | 20 YEARS


DMX KREW | 20 YEARS | OBERHEIM DMX REPLICA EDITION 

 LAST UNITS!!! 

As you know this is a compilation of last 20 years of DMX Krew with 12 vinyl records, two slipmats, t-shirt and the plexiglass DMX replica with the wooden sides.

This is a little bit of the history of electro music with remixes by JTC, Cylob, Jodey Kendrick, Bintus, Lotek Style, Brian Ellis, DJ Di’jital, Aux88 and Aphex Twin.



Last year we released "100 Tears" on Fundamental Records, a double album composed in a very special moment with very basic equipment; a delicious album that sold out in only 48 hours; a very hard to find masterwork if you don’t want to pay the extortionate prices of Discogs.

At Fundamental Records we are truly lovers of DMX Krew, we have most of his releases on our shelves, and after "100 Tears" we started to talk about releasing a very special project featuring unreleased tracks from the archives plus alternate versions of old tracks, brand new remixes, and some old favourites remastered.

The result is a compilation of twelve beautifully designed vinyl records with a very special selection made scrupulously by Ed and mastered for vinyl by Alek Stark. This process has been conducted painstakingly over the last six months and each record will be cut and manufactured using lacquer mastering for the best possible sound, and
will be available only in the vinyl format.

Included in this selection of tracks are remixes by JTC, Cylob, Jodey Kendrick, Bintus, Lotek Style, Brian Ellis, DJ Di’jital, Aux88 and Aphex Twin.

This is a unique project from a unique artist, and Fundamental Records is really proud to have the opportunity to release surely one of the best projects of the year.
