Out in a few weeks – and available here – is the massive tribute album “Heresy – A Tribute to Rational Youth”. The release features 19 artists from 6 countries reinterpreting the legendary electronic group’s best loved songs across 3 vinyl records packaged in a double gatefold sleeve.
Contributors to Heresy include several familiar faces from the electronic music scene: Robert Enforsen (Elegant Machinery), Psyche, Parralox, Machinista or Technomancer Feat. Angst Pop. Two former members of Rational Youth, Kevin Komoda (Rekk) and Dave Rout (Datafreq/The Beautiful Spies) also are present rebooting the classic tracks.
Rational Youth also feature on “Heresy” with “This Side of the Border”, a track taken from their recent EP, “Future Past Tense”.
No digital download is available, and the full album will not appear on any streaming service – “Heresy” is being released as a physical product only. The limited edition package includes 2 LPs in heavy-grade 180gm vinyl, a 12” single (also in 180gm vinyl), and 2 CDs with all of the vinyl content. You can check the full track list right here.
