Toronto-based Artoffact Records will re-issue Marsheaux’s Inhale record with an ultra-rare vinyl effect. 

Toronto, Canada–

Toronto-based Artoffact Records announced last week that they will be reissuing Inhale, the 2013 album by Greek duo Marsheaux, on vinyl.
Formed in 2000, Marsheaux has surged in popularity in recent years, with releases on Les Disques Du Crépuscule, Out of Line, Artoffact Records, Anna Logue Records, and Undo Records. They have remixed OMD; their music has been used by The Human League and name-checked by BBC radio hosts Tom Robinson and Stuart Maconie; and recently VNV Nation tapped the duo as support on a tour in Germany.
The project’s fourth record, Inhale, sold out of an original vinyl run in 2014. This new reissue of Inhale includes a special effect that is quite rare called shape-splatter. The effect looks a bit like the more familiar splatter effect, but instead of streaks eminating from the vinyl disc’s center, there are geometric shapes.
The effect was so costly and complicated to produce, that the plant which produces it (GZ in the Czech Republic) have stated that they will no longer be making it in the new year. Marsheaux’s record will be one of the last.
Artoffact will be producing 199 copies of this wonderful and unique piece, and the planned shipping date is February 2016.

 

MARSHEAUX IN THE PRESS

“I do have a soft spot for Marsheaux I have to say. They have a certain sort of wispy, melancholic charm.”
Andy McCluskey of OMD
“A fun, nostalgic romp through the evolution of electro pop.”
Mumbles, V-Rag Magazine
“This is a really lovely sweet song.” (re: “To the End”)
Everett True, Collapse Board
“Marsheaux are all about pushing upwards and onwards and at their best their potential seems limitless.”
Alex Kennedy, I Die: You Die
“One of the year’s best dance floor albums.”
Music Is Alright
“Marsheaux have perfected their slick and breezy synthpop formula since 2004 and Inhale is, in many ways, their most advanced effort to date.”

“This is a great album.”
