The Crackdown - Limited Edition Grey Vinyl

  • Limited Edition Grey Vinyl
  • Includes download code

Cabaret Voltaire’s ‘The Crackdown’, as originally remastered in 2013, now reissued on Grey vinyl. Initially released in 1983, ‘The Crackdown’ was the band’s fourth album, and first after the exit of founding member Chris Watson. The album fuses their earlier experimental records with the electronic dance-funk sound that would become more prominent within their subsequent releases and includes the magnificent haunting single ‘Just Fascination’.

The significance of ‘The Crackdown’ has grown over the decades, also enlisted in NME’s best albums of 1983.

Cabaret Voltaire were very much ahead of their time, harmonising dance music, techno, dub, house and experimental electronics, making them, without a doubt, one of the most influential acts in electronic music.
