“A beginning is a very delicate time. Know then that it is the year 10,191. In this time, the most precious substance in the universe is the spice Melange. The spice extends life. The spice expands consciousness. The spice is vital to space travel. The Spacing Guild and its navigators, who the spice has mutated over 4,000 years, use the orange spice gas, which gives them the ability to fold space. That is, travel to any part of the universe without a moving.” (Introduction by Princess Irulan from planet Kaitain, from where the known Universe is ruled by her father, the Padishah Emperor Shaddam IV)

“I will miss the sea.. but a person needs new experiences they jar something deep inside without change something sleeps inside us and seldom awakens The sleeper must awaken” (Words spoken by Leto Atreides to his son Paul before their journey to Arrakis began)

“A storm is going.. our storm.. and when it arrives it will shake the universe” (Speech to the Fremen by Muad’Dib before the Padishah Emperor and his sardaukar troops arrive at Arrakis)
4.
“Many machines on IX” (A navigator of the Spacing Guild describes his impressions of planet IX during his visit on Kaitain)

about

The 8th record on Sounds of Jericho is a special one, not just because it comes as an exclusive, colourful marbled and to only 200 pieces limited Vinyl edition, its also an affair of heart for electronic music producer and liveact performer JOIX.

The last 2 years were a tough time for him and all creative minds and artists in general, a time without many culture happenings and music events, so in a metaphoric sense it felt like a dried out period without real community, joy and abundance.. like living in a cultural desert!
This is the main metaphoric idea of the Desert Planet EP, but furthermore its a homage to the legendary Dune-Epos, which JOIX is a huge fan of, since he watched the legendary movie by David Lynch as a child, which dugs deep into his consciousness and leads him exploring the 6 Dune books by Sci-Fi author Frank Herbert again and again, soaking up its great story, visions and literary beauty.
As the new Dune movie by Villeneuve comes to light at the cinemas this year it felt clearly right to add this Vinyl to the whole Dune universe as well.

So let the spice, music and joy flow again with this orange-black beauty!
