Originally self-released in 1999 on cassette and issued across CD and 2LP in 2001, Plan 9... Meat Your Hypnotis impacted 21st-century experimental music and laid the groundwork for the rise of cLOUDDEAD and Anticon Records. With the Dr. Sample 202 as his primary instrument, Nosdam, real name David Madson, was able to capture an enormous wealth of samples from his surroundings in Cincinnati, Ohio, finding usage in everything he was hearing. The record has long been out of print.
The reissue reproduces the artwork from the original 1999 cassette version, and its streaming counterpart will be a first-time issue for the album in digital format.
Nosdam says: "When I started making beats in January 1998, I was deep into art school, fully immersed in art, trying different mediums and learning as much about great artists and art history as possible. Music was just another medium to express myself with, plus I had a boomin' car stereo and wanted to make beats to listen to on my art school commutes. I don't recall having a specific vision other than just wanting to tap into sound, which is why I've always considered Plan 9 a sketchbook of ideas with no real cohesion, just collages of sound, a grab bag of beats and stuff."
The reissue is updated with previously unreleased works. It runs at close to 60 minutes now with 50 tracks, all digitally mastered by Odd Nosdam.
Plan 9... Meat Your Hypnotis LP lands August 16 via Dome of Doom Records, with "p9 24" streaming below. You can pre-order the album here.
