Larry Heard's 'Alien' LP to Receive Remastered Vinyl Reissue; Preview It Now
- Words: James Eaton
Announced just today, Chicago house icon Larry Heard will soon have his nine-song Alien LP (originally released in 1996 via Black Market International) remastered and reissued as a double-LP vinyl package by his own Alleviated label. Described as the veteran DJ/producer's "first actual science-fiction record," Alien was produced largely with a Korg O1/W workstation, as well as a Roland D550, an Oberheim Matrix 1000, and other classic instruments from the era's digital revolution. The remastered album is scheduled to arrive as a "full vinyl release for the first time" on April 21, and can be previewed before then, below, where its tracklist is also included. More details on the reissue can be found here.
