On a mission to pull out from the grasps of muso name droppers and the limbo of mythical obscurity; Domino is thrilled to announce the release of 'Slip In And Out of Phenomenon' on May 19th.

A collection of Liquid Liquid’s legendary 3 EPS - originally released back in the early 80s, pressed in very limited quantities on 99 Records - and including 10 previously unreleased bonus tracks and live recordings.

You're probably aware of this groundbreaking New York No Wave outfit without even knowing it. Their seminal track 'Cavern' from the Optimo EP includes one of the all-time classic bass lines which was sampled on Melle Mel's 'White Lines (Don't Do It)' and became one of early hip-hop's biggest hits. Liquid Liquid's Avant Garde spirit, echoing vocals and tribal beats have seeped into the sounds of Animal Collective and LCD Soundsystem amongst others and one of the UK's hippest clubs, Glasgow's Optimo is named after track 13 of this CD.

The sound of a long, hot summer night; 'Slip In And Out of Phenomenon' is a hypnotic, humid racket of funk, dub reggae, minimalist funk. Refreshing, enlightening and essential, you can pre-order it now for only £8.99 on CD and a very special triple vinyl packaging for £12.99.
