Non Phixion - The Future is Now (2XLP) (20th Anniversary Edition)
In celebration of the 20th anniversary of Non Phixion’s seminal LP, The Future Is Now, Uncle Howie Records is pleased to announce the release of 3 special anniversary edition pressings.
The vocal album boasts a never before revealed, updated version of the album cover designed by revered illustrator, Mear One. The 2XLP is pressed on orchid colored discs and are contained within full color sleeves abound with liner notes.
The instrumental LP jacket features an overhauled version of the left half of the never before seen ‘final’ mural illustrated by Mear One. This release marks the first time the instrumentals have been made available on vinyl in nearly 20 years!
The acappella version of the album features the right half of the 'final' mural, which when put side by side with the instrumental vinyl gives you the full 'final' mural, making this a true collector’s edition to reel in the milestone! This is also the first time ever that the acappellas have been made available.
This will be the only time these versions will be available with these covers.
Comprised of group members ILL BILL, Lord Goat (f/k/a Goretex), Sabac Red and DJ Eclipse, The Future Is Now remains the group’s sole full length effort, garnering much acclaim among both critics and fans alike. Considered by many as an underground classic, TFIN boasts a production dream team that includes DJ Premier, Pete Rock and Large Professor, who had yet to appear credited together on the same album since the release of Nas’ Illmatic. Additional producers tapped include JuJu of The Beatnuts, Dave 1 of Chromeo, T-Ray and Necro.
The album features guest appearances from MF DOOM, Necro, The Beatnuts, Al Tariq, Marly Metal, Moonshine, Stephen Carpenter of Deftones, and Christian Olde Wolbers and Raymond Herrera of Fear Factory. The album's cover art was created by Mear One, and the logo is a tribute to Canadian metal band Voivod, and was created by Voivod’s own, Away. The album includes the singles "Black Helicopters,” "Drug Music" b/w "If You Got Love" and "Rock Stars" b/w "The C.I.A. is Trying to Kill Me.”
The 20th anniversary editions of The Future Is Now are set for release on March 24th via Uncle Howie Records in partnership with Fat Beats Distribution.
