Beyond the Wizard's Sleeve
The Soft Bounce

Released on July 1st 2016, The Soft Bounce is Beyond The Wizards Sleeve’s debut album. Housed in a hard mirrored gate-fold sleeve, possibly the world’s first, and only fully reflective record sleeve! Pressed on heavy black vinyl, featuring the same 11 tracks as the other editions, this beautiful artefact has to be seen to be believed. As with the previous singles, the sleeve was designed by Erol Alkan and Phil Sims (Neighbour UK) based around a shot of the band’s instruments by Ellis Scott, photographed in the old Decca studios in Finsbury Park.

Client Information

Beyond The Wizards Sleeve is the warped-Balearic-psychedelic-brotherhood of Erol Alkan and The Grid’s Richard Norris.

Adding cosmic perfection to artists including The Chemical Brothers, Daniel Avery, Interpol, Goldfrapp, Midlake, Peter, Bjorn and John and many more.
