Limited edition of 700 copies!
Geometrik presents the reissue [for the first time EVER on vinyl!] of SHEIK ALJAMA, originally published on CD only in 1991 on Dirk Ivens’ Daft Records. Recorded between 1987 and 1989 and remastered in 2014 from the original tapes. An especially interesting period where the unique and characteristic rhytmic-industrial E.G. style – developed during the eighties - turns into something more minimalistic, schematic, cold and rough, with sporadic influences of arabic music and more focussed on rhythmic sections.
SHEIKH ALJAMA is a Esplendor Geométrico CLASSIC and one of the best albums of their entire career, including their hit ‘Sinaya’. Sheikh Aljama stands out for the incorporation of sonorities, voices and percusions of arabic influence. Remastered in 2014 from the original reel to reel tapes.
