James Holden

The Idiots Are Winning [2019 Repress]


+ Limited Indie version is pressed on double crystal clear with splatter coloured vinyl.

+ Limited to just 1000 copies.

The Long-awaited repress of previous Sea Change festival guest and Drift Top-Albums-of-the-Year list winner James Holden’s essential 2006 debut album ‘The Idiots Are Winning’.

A master class in delightfully wonky and restlessly glitchy minimal techno that has influenced many, though seldom been equalled.

Includes barnstorming stomper ‘Idiot’, trippy headwrecker ‘Lump’, loose-limbed workout ‘Corduroy’ and the twitchy insistent ‘10101’: dancefloor staples to this day, whose reappearance on vinyl is most welcome.

A unashamedly dancefloor-focused EP bursting with DJ tools which somehow also stands up as an idiosyncratic and effortlessly accomplished debut album offering, ‘The Idiots Are Winning’ is a celebration of one-time king of computer music James Holden at the height of his club-destroying powers.

Pressed on double crystal-clear splatter vinyl (1000 copies only).
