Product Details:

"Combines horror and melancholy potently. Chapman simmers his haunted creations, a sort of David Lynch of the dancefloor."
The Wire

"An unexpected delight. Full of nagging melodies and post-rave rhythms."
Boomkat

"Evokes a landscape of epic proportions - has appeal far beyond the art world."
Dazed & Confused

The Vinyl Factory presents a special limited edition of 'Luftbobler', the debut album by Dinos Chapman.

Limited to 300 copies worldwide, this edition includes an exclusive coloured etching by Dinos Chapman, individually tipped in, with five colour screen printed artwork across four bespoke panels. Each sleeve has been hand signed and numbered by the artist.

Written and produced by Dinos Chapman, the album's 13 tracks have been mastered for vinyl and pressed on two 180-gram heavyweight, hand-etched records. This edition also contains an additional one-sided 12" vinyl pressing of an exclusive bonus track, which will never be subsequently released on any format.

Brimming with subversive energy, searing wit and gallows humour, 'Luftbobler' consists of 13 tracks of electronic music - created at Dinos Chapman's basement studio in East London; the result of a decade of experimenting with sound.

"People are going to make comparisons with the art," says Dinos. "Everyone's going to expect thrash metal or some ear-bending dissonance from one of the Chapman brothers, but that's too easy. That's what I imagine artists would make. For me, it was always important to make music."

Dinos Chapman presents his Luftbobler live audio-visual show at Fabric, London on October 17 with guest DJs Trevor Jackson, Steve Mackey & Jarvis Cocker, Phonica and special guests TBA. Capactity is strictly limited; tickets are available to buy from Fabric.

Expect deconstructed tracks from the album plus new material accompanying a series of new short films, shot and edited by Chapman - immersive, eerie and unlike anything else, this is not to be missed.

Dinos Chapman was born in 1962 in London, where he lives and works. As a solo artist, and together with his brother Jake Chapman, Dinos makes iconoclastic sculpture, prints and installations that examine, with searing wit and energy, contemporary politics, religion and morality.

Arguably, the Chapman brothers’ most ambitious work was 'Hell' (1999), an immense tabletop tableau, peopled with over 30,000 remodelled, 2-inch-high figures, many in Nazi uniform and performing egregious acts of cruelty. The work combined historical, religious and mythic narratives to present an apocalyptic snapshot of the twentieth-century. Tragically this work was destroyed in the MOMART fire in 2004 and the Chapmans rebuked by saying they would make another, more ambitious in scale and detail - the result of which was 'Fucking Hell' (2008).

The Chapmans have exhibited extensively, with numerous shows at White Cube (including Disasters of War, 1999, The Chapman Family Collection, 2002, Like a Dog Returns To Its Vomit, 2005, If Hitler Had Been A Hippy How Happy Would We Be, 2008, and Jake or Dinos Chapman, 2011) as well as Tate Britain (When Humans Walked The Earth, 2007), Tate Liverpool (Bad Art For Bad People, 2006), Modern Art Oxford (The Rape Of Creativity, 2003) and Gagosian New York (Six Feet Under, 1997).

Dazed & Confused

"Composed of seismic tremors and sinister basslines, Luftbobler is unsettling and all the better for it."
Evening Standard

"An anxious avant-techno adventure that owes a debt both to Eno and Eastern European fairytales."
