Etnica - Live In Athens 1996 - 3LP - Limited Edition - [DATLP004]


Hello Everyone!


As you all know, vinyls are coming back, the format is timeless. In the early years of recording music was recorded on flat discs with grooves and the format persisted. We like the CD with its purity, but there is no doubt that the classic analogue sound and warmth of a vinyl is surely magical.

After long consideration and investigation into different options of pressing/mastering, we opted for a crowd-funding project where you could pre-order a copy of the album to finance its physical realisation. The project was half funded back in 2014 and taking a huge risk we decided to press it anyway.




And some beautiful Vinyl Grooves...

Vinyl Grooves


The release of this live set is something that was needed, to signal to the world how epic a live performance can be. On that night of the 12th of October 1996, a wonderful set was recorded, and it is now ready to be broadcast.

This album was released in 2012 on a 2CD featuring also a selection of Etnica’s best unreleased productions, spanning 1995 to 1998. 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 was successfully published.

Limited and very expensive to produce you get the magic of the liveset captured into vinyl grooves, what a treat! You will hear this music engraved into this timeless format and records would survive the CD era as well.

This release is a historical document from when digital production was still unknown and music was created in its purest form. The tracks have undergone significant mastering and restoration, as the DAT tapes where the music was kept were not in the best condition.

Vinyl's have been pressed on 180 gram virgin vinyl, for the best result and the Gatefold has been printed on heavy carton with opaque finishing. The release includes complete artwork and a reprint of the original flyer of the party!
