£25.99 – Limited Edition Crystal Clear Splatter Vinyl 2xLP
A unashamedly dancefloor-focused EP bursting with DJ tools which somehow also stands up as an idiosyncratic and effortlessly accomplished debut album offering, The Idiots Are Winning is a celebration of one-time king of computer music James Holden at the height of his club-destroying powers.
This long-awaited repress of Holden’s essential 2006 debut The Idiots Are Winning on double crystal-clear splatter vinyl (1000 copies only) is a master class in delightfully wonky and restlessly glitchy minimal techno that has influenced many, though seldom been equalled.
The eight track mini-album includes barnstorming stomper ‘Idiot’, trippy headwrecker ‘Lump’, loose-limbed workout ‘Corduroy’ and the twitchy insistent ‘10101’; dancefloor staples to this day, whose reappearance on vinyl is most welcome.
