Current Leading Electronic Artists Pay Homage to French Electronic Music Pioneers Space Art!
Because Music presents Remix, a double 12" release featuring current leading electronic artists like Prins Thomas, Psychemagik, Daniele Baldelli and Marco Dionigi paying homage to the legacy of Space Art and their pioneering classic French electro music. Comes in printed cardboard sleeve with CD included.
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. 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.
