Exit Planet Dust is the larger-than-life 1995 debut from the undisputed masters of brain-altering, transcendent electronica The Chemical Brothers comprised of Tom Rowlands and Ed Simons. The album's title is in reference to the duo's former Dust Brothers moniker which they had to relinquish due to impending legalities with the U.S. production duo of the same name. The trailblazing release is regarded as one of the first of its kind to break into the mainstream and is credited with literally inventing the big-beat style that would go on to dominate the British dance scene in its wake.
Equally ahead of its time and timeless, the eleven-song stunner runs the gamut of what has become modern dance music's touchstones with hip-hop rhythms, distorted rock guitars, bombastic basslines, unrelenting sound samples, and throws in vocal contributions from the likes of Beth Orton and the Charlatans' Tim Burgess for good measure.
The Chemical Brothers' first seven studio albums will again be available in the U.S. Each comes repackaged in the original sleeve artwork from the first pressings. Audio has been cut from the original lacquers directly from the studio of the original engineer, Mike Marsh, and is fully approved by The Chemical Brothers' Ed Simons and Tom Rowlands.
