Sleeve notes:

Systemwide Meets Muslimgauze at the City of the Dead and Sound Secretion Dub were companion 12" EPs released in hand-screened editions of 500 each, shortly after Bryn Jones (Muslimgauze) had died in the winter of 1999. The former was dedicated to Bryn and a portion of the proceeds went to the Kosovo Humanitarian Relief Organization. Sound Secretion Dub was recorded primarily on a 4 track in New York City before Sound Secretion settled in Portland and evolved into Alter Echo. Echoic Memory Dub was intended for release on his split picture disc with DJ Spooky, but was held back specifically for this CD. Systemwide Meets Muslimgauze. Nommos' Return was released a year after the 12"s, as a hand-stamped 10" EP in an edition of 2000. All of Muslimgauze's tracks on these two records are remixes of Systemwide material sent to Bryn in 1999. Bryn's musical influence continues to be felt from the uninterrupted stream of new Muslimgauze music being released. He also continues to move us personally, through his example of uncompromising allegiance to one's vision and beliefs - regardless of critics and naysayers.
