Protected – Massive Samples
Another compilation from the guys over at K7/Rapster. This time, a collection of original tracks sampled by Massive Attack.
The illustration is based on the hazard flame used on their first albums. I had originally wanted the flame to be screen-printed on recycled board but there wasn't the budget for it. So I found an old brown envelope and scanned the back of it... the result isn't bad. The words were set and warped in Illustrator, then traced by hand and scanned back in.
Its always good to design a record cover and enjoy the record itself. Definitely the case with this one, with the Isaac Hayes and Billy Cobham tracks being my favourites.
