Early last year, Amon Tobin released the Dark Jovian EP as an Record Day exclusive. It was a single-sided heavyweight 180g, 12”s white vinyl with etched markings encased in a branded white rubber wheel and housed in a transparent plastic box! The 29th and 30th of August 2015, as part of the Ninja Tune 25 years celebration, beat ink and Ninja Tune created a pop-up shop were they sold goodies and exclusive product. The Dark Jovian, Japanese Limited Edition CD was a part of the store. Fast forward nearly half a year later and it's finally available here via hmv.co.jp for only $11. It's time to discover the Dark Jovian little brother...

Similar to the vinyl, the CD is in a clear plastic case without any insert or back cover. Only a semi-opac sticker has been applied with tracklisting, artist information, barcode etc. The CD is display back to front in case, to mimic the etched vinyl faces. Note that there is a spelling  mistake on the "Encounter on Io" spelling which has been written as "Enconter". The CD sounds exactly the same as the vinyl and it's a real pleasure to listen to this EP ; without  having to the delicately unwrap the vinyl!

It's time to add this little addition from Amon Tobin to your collection, but be fast! Prices are still increasing on e-bay and Discogs!
