Derdeoc, St. Hilaire and Rhauder’s first full-length collaboration. A triple-vinyl release with artwork from label designer Kerry Roper, we’re told it’s been in the works for more than a year, and while it draws on “diverse influences such as Jamaican dub rhythms,” there’s “a strict focus on the club floor.” Material from the album will feature heavily in the duo’s new live set! We can’t wait for this.
