Limited Edition LP + CD Reissue of Pioneering French Electronic Music Duo's Third Album Cut from 2010 Digital Remasters & Presented on Vinyl for the First Time!
Because Music presents a reissue of Space Art's third studio effort Play Back, originally released in 1980. Space Art, the duo of Roger Rizzitelli and Dominique Perrier, is a legendary group that is considered a great pioneer of French electronic music. Perrier, having collaborated with Michel Fugain and Il Etait Une Fois, is one of legend Jean-Michel Jarre's closest collaborators. Dominique discovered the very first synthesizer ARP (Odyssey) which he was taken by so much that he created his own band, Space Art, aside his good friend and drummer Rizitelli. This curious band endorsed tight and opaque costumes of decontamination which covered their bodies and masked their faces.
The group released three revered studio albums: Space Art (1977), Trip In The Center Head (1979) and Play Back (1980) and produced the massive hits "Onyx," "Give Me Love," and "Love In C Minor" in the process. Space Art's legacy is the true "techno trance." All three of the group's celebrated studio albums will be reissued in 2016 courtesy of Because Music, all cut from the 2010 digital remasters and presented on vinyl for the very first time. Considering the success of the Cosmic Machine compilations, French proto-electro is being revisited by fans of electronic music and being given well-deserved attention. Vinyl comes in printed cardboard sleeve with CD included.
