Description

"Marconi Union have been supplying the world with superior ambient music for some 14 years now" The Sunday Times

"Marconi Union have always excelled at the creation of a sonic space in which to shelter" The Quietus

"One of the finest electronica releases of the year" Louder Than War

"Marconi Union always find beauty in the bleakest places" Uncut 8/10

On this special vinyl release for Record Store Day, Marconi Union have commissioned four stunningly evocative and bold remixes from Biosphere, Japan's Steve Jansen, Antonymes and Digitonal, one for each track on Ghost Stations, which exquisitely compliment the captivating beauty of the original album.

With Ghost Stations, their ninth studio album released in August last year, Marconi Union were not afraid to accept the challenge of making new music rather than just repeating their earlier work and were well aware of the risk of trying new things.

"People who have bought our previous records may think we've gone too far in this direction or that direction or that we don't do enough of some particular aspect anymore, but we've already done those things in our previous work and we have to keep pushing our boundaries otherwise what is the point? We want people to hear Ghost Stations and say "'What the f**k is that' either in a good or bad way!"

They decided to set aside any preconceptions about the new album and spent two years experimenting with playing, programming, editing, re-editing, (agreeing and disagreeing) until Ghost Stations naturally evolved. Once the title was decided upon, everything fell into place, connecting ideas of abandonment, empty spaces and dereliction.

Over fourteen years of writing and performing, Marconi Union ? thought to be "amongst today's most talented musicians" The Sunday Times - have continually steadily developed and refined a unique musical identity, evoking emotions from gracefully blending elements of dub, jazz, ambience and electronica within their richly melodic compositions.
