GET IN THE GLOOMY BEGINNINGS OF ELECTRO-ITALO-DISCO CRAZE!
GENRE`````EARLY ELECTRO, EURO-DISCO, ELECTRONIC
The most exiciting moments in my music-obssesed part of life come when I re-discover early recordings that were so progressive and obscure for their time that their influence created entire sub-genres that last even today. This LP is a definitive example of a brilliant underground recording that over the years reached a super-cult status. Listening to this 1978 French vinyl you can clearly hear the future sounds of Felix Da Housecat and the rest of the electro-revival gang of the late 90's and early 00's. A truly remarkable piece of ambient, dark, beat-driven club minimalism that spawned hundreds of thousands of devoted acid-chewing clubbers around the globe.
ALBUM REVIEW FROM DISCOGS:
This is a very obscure release by one of the earliest of the euro disco artists who would later personify an entire genre. Originating from France, this release developed a major cult following all over Europe during the last 25 years and it is now considered to have been a major influence on many of the early 80's italo disco and euro disco artists who emerged on the scene shortly after this release. As for this LP - it's a 2-sided vinyl release with 6 songs all having a copycat sound effect that makes each song sound similar to the others. The only difference is a few tweeks to the synthesizer, the speed of the drum machine's BPM and some different vocals which ultimately allowed the amateur artists behind the Black Devil act to create their one and only LP. The songs were all recorded in real-time and all begin with that dark and wicked drum beat that sounds less like a disco song but more like the procession of a tribal ceremony in the jungles of Africa. Very bizarre, very rare, and very good music. Get it if you can!
