Beyond the Wizards Sleeve-Ark 1

"we got a big one here! you don't wanna' miss this! richard norris, founding member of the grid, and london's premier dj, producer and remix maestro erol alkan have been releasing music under the beyond the wizard's sleeve moniker since 2007, when their first 12" sold out in a matter of days. then came the second, third and fourth releases, all selling out as soon as they hit the shelves. here is a collection of some of the finest moments from the 4 highly sought after 12's. this is a serious slice of esoteric, eclectic freakbeat weirdness. re-edited nuggets, long lost exotic psychedelia and krauty, disco beats are all mangled into previously unheard shapes. totally exclusive to rough trade, this is simply some of the most vital, mindbending and great music to be heard. do. not. miss." -Rough Trade

This is a ridiculous record that all psych/krautrock/electro fans NEED. Best record I've heard all year.

Want it?

You're right about this wonderful record which is incredibly varied and hard to categorise. Even harks back to 60s psychadelia in places. Sleeve is different though
Thanks a million for posting it.
