Karlrecords give new life on vinyl to what is surely one of the most important and mind-melting recordings of electroacoustic futurism to ever have been created... Yes that's right, Iannis Xenakis' time-slip masterpiece Persepolis has been reissued on the format it most suitably deserves to grace, newly mixed from the original 8-track master tapes, Karlrecords stellar job here means that this is the only LP edition that brings the heat of the full 54 minutes version of Xenakis' visionary trip to wax.

Setting the scene while stealing it at the same time forever from any n0!se artists who dare to compose anything even close to resembling the sheer sonic sorcery that Iannis Xenakis drummed up in this 1972 vision. Persepolis is not the sort of record you will be reaching for after a hard day at work, and maybe not even something you play every week, month or even once a year. Yet when you do give yourself 54 minutes (plus a few hours after to recover) to enter into the endless maze of Persepolis, the hypnotic effect of swirling mechanical machinery and sheer subdued chaos will no doubt stay in your mind for a very long time afterwards. Incredibly physical and immortality edging ahead of every other audio it sits beside. It really should go without saying just how important this record is, this is music from an entirely different dimension that will take you to new ones everytime you unleash it.
