    Soulwax and Riton hook up as Die Verboten

    Post by Adio on Tue 23 Jun 2009, 09:27

    Soulwax have joined forces with Riton and graphic designer Fergus Purcell (AKA Fergadelic) for their latest musical project, entitled Die Verboten.

    "Live In Eivissa," their first recorded output, is set to come out next week as a limited vinyl pressing on The Vinyl Factory, who have been busy designing and manufacturing premium quality wax packages for the likes of the Pet Shop Boys, Primal Scream and Damon Albarn. The single 12-inch release comes at a whopping retail price of 30, but there's plenty more on offer than just the music. "Live In Eivissa" will take up one side of the vinyl, whilst the flip will hold a specially etched design. In addition, fans who purchase the record will even be able to erect a 3-D pop-up pyramid by folding the sleeve correctly, and also be safe in the knowledge that only 300 stamped and numbered copies have been manufactured.

    But what about the track? As well as designing the artwork, Fergus takes drumming duties on track, an 18-minute Krautrock-infused session recorded live in the lads' Ibiza studio, with nods to both Balearic and space-disco sounds as well as more hypnotic German fare. The group plan to follow this release with both an album and DVD, which will drop later this year. We spoke to David and Fergus by e-mail to ask them about the recording, artwork, and what the future holds for Die Verboten.
