Etnica need no introduction: they have been storming the dance floors all over the world for two decades now. Innovators since the very beginning, they inspired many producers and are considered to be leaders and among the best artists ever in the Goa Trance realm.
The release of this live set is something that was very much needed, to signal to the world how epic a live performance can be. On that night of the 12th of October 1996, magic was created, a wonderful set was recorded, and it is now ready to be broadcast to the world.
This album was successfully released in 2012 on a 2CD featuring also the selection by Draeke of Etnica’s best unreleased productions, spanning 1995 to 1998, their golden years. Later on the idea of making it into a vinyl release took place and a crowdfunding was launched in February 2014. After 5 months of hard work the release is a reality.
Very Limited and very expensive to produce you get here a little jewel, the magic of the liveset captured into vinyl grooves and oh boy what a treat! You will hear this music engraved forever into this timeless format and the records would probably survive the CD era as well.
This release is a must-have, a historical document from an era where digital production was still unknown and where the music was created in its purest form.
The tracks have undergone significant re-mastering and restoration, as the DAT tapes where the music was kept were not in the best condition, so they are now available in the best possible sound.
Vinyl's have been pressed @180gr using only virgin wax, for the best possible result and the Gatefold has been printed on heavy carton with opaque finishing.
The release includes digital download of the source files, complete artwork and a reprint of the original flyer of the party!
So sit back and enjoy Etnica’s timeless melodies.
All the classics of the band are included in this release - you have no excuse to not like this opus.
Have a safe ride!
