Veteran disco legend offers up six new tracks
Etincelles, which translates as ‘sparks’ in English, is the follow up to 2020’s Lucifer Is A Flower and features six brand new tracks including the lead single ‘L Mer Sur L’enfer’ – which was inspired by Salvador Dali.
Having grown up and worked in Paris, it was the underground clubs and diverse rhythms in the city that inspired him to make his celebrated debut album ‘Black Devil Disco Club’ with only a small arsenal of electronic keyboards, a vocoder and looped conga drums. One of the most enigmatic electronic masterpieces ever made, the record was so ahead of it’s time that no-one could believe it was made in 1977 – when it was re-issued in 2004 on the Rephlex label many thought it was a hoax and that the music was made by Aphex Twin or Luke Vibert. But when Lo Recordings put out the 28 After album in 2006, the truth was finally revealed.
