LEIGHTON HARRIS – POWER UP 12″
12″ Vinyl – Leighton Harris – Power Up (LH003)
CONGRATULATIONS! YOU FOUND THE MAGICAL GOLDEN PHONOGRAPH
Leighton Harris is known for paying ultra close attention to the finest of details in crafting DJ tools and for creating records as dazzling as they are unique. He is now ready to unleash his third scratch vinyl release: LH003 “Power Up”.
This tool picks up where the “Black Magic” EP left off – a battle record loaded with both classic and new scratch samples, tones, sound effects and as the bombastic artwork shows off, you can expect no shortage of legendary video game samples on this wax.
The A side rolls in hard with 20 skip-proof tracks for DJs to get busy with in practice sessions or in battle mode. The B side consists of themed tracks, with samples being grouped by similarities. All samples and loops are arranged to work with regular turntables with +/- 8% pitch. As with previous releases there are plenty of hidden “easter eggs” to be found buried between the skipless tracks.
Each 12” record has been pressed onto black vinyl and is sleeved in a gatefold album cover that pays tribute to Nintendo’s Super Mario Brothers “Ghost House” flipped for tablists. Every 1 in 5 copies of this release has a bonus 12” pressed onto golden vinyl included with the regular black version. The magical bonus golden phonograph cannot be selected, they are presented at random.
The Vinyl Factory etching department is run by Leighton Harris, and he has included detailed etched artwork around the label on the disc, perfectly lined up with the skipless sounds in the grooves to act as a cuing aid while looking incredible. “Power Up” is a 12” masterpiece through and trough that is a must have for any serious battle DJ and collector of scratch records.
