Very grateful to Bureau B for releasing these forgotten Euro gems in electronica. This is a compilation cd which entails tracks from the duos three cassette releases. Great low noisefloor, no pops(because its a CD!) and nice artwork with a full booklet inside the digipak.
Music is here is straight out of the Berlin school, minimalist, early Chris Carter, Terry Riley school. Hypnotic repetitive phased organs and synths with drum box accompaniment you know the sounds that make hipsters wet because its old. Some of the music reminds me of the collaboration Manuel Gottsching made with Lutz Ulrich in the mid 1970s. Tho they where from France the influences crossed the countries borders and very relevant in the music found on the cd.
Music back in the day had a nice DIY simplicity without a million samples and instruments bouncing around the stereo field. It wasn't as jarring and listener friendly(un) as todays trance/dance bs music. Perhaps that's why much of this music has seen new light in today's world. Thanks to a younger audience gravitating towards it and labels such as BB keeping the musical archive torch burning!
