Alec Empire - The Destroyer 7" (1997 - DHR/Grand Royal)


While in college in the mid-90s, I had an ample appetite for glitched/damaged electronic music as well as the intensity and sweat of the hardcore punk of old. I was working at WUSC talking with our rep for Grand Royal. "Have you heard of Digital Hardcore?", she said. After that, a fleet of 7-inch vinyls showed up in the mail. The minute I put this on, there it was: this sound that I had in my head and couldn't formulate it into words.

This is my first vinyl rip. I hope you enjoy it.


Process: Ion LPDOCK -> Audacity (Click removal, normalize) -> LAME 3.99 mp3 (vbr -0)
