Crónica’s 78th edition presents Pure’s classic the.end.of.vinyl, originally released by Mego in 1999. Long out of stock, this was Pure’s first output after the switch from analogue hardware to software and also his first work focusing on the pure listening experience instead of dance music.
the.end.of.vinyl is not a manifesto against vinyl records, rather a mention to the sources used in the composition, taken from various run out grooves. Fourteen years past, these two pieces are now redistributed in digital format and are the starting point for the ten compositions in the upcoming release in Crónica No End of Vinyl.
