2014 repress. This is the fourth in a series of four limited-edition Chris & Cosey vinyl re-releases from their esteemed catalog. Exotika was originally released by Play It Again Sam in 1987. This hugely popular album includes such Chris & Cosey classics such as the crowd-pleasing "BeatBeatBeat," the haunting ballad "Dr. John (Sleeping Stephen)" and the original version of the seminal title track "Exotika," which was adopted as an electronica anthem, most notably on the GOA scene and in the U.S. West and East Coast gay clubs of the 1980s. Remastered by Chris Carter, repressed on black vinyl. Includes a glossy insert with historic photographs and press clippings. Archival press quote: "Chris & Cosey beat most of 87's mainstream dancefloor contenders on their own territory of sheer pleasure, urged joy. 'BeatBeatBeat' is extreme, a revelation." --Ian Gittins, Melody Maker 1987; "Chris & Cosey have made a great dance record, but it's their kind of dancing. No junk here. They're crazy enough to be sincere about their musical Pleasureland and they want to share their discovery. Come and feel the sound as though your life depends on it: if it were up to them, it would depend on it." --Rockpool, 1987
