Zazou Biyake “Noir et Blanc” (1983, Crammed Discs)
via CD: At last, the re-mastered vinyl reissue of one of the biggest cult albums in the history of Crammed Discs.
This record is constantly being (re)discovered by generations of fans, musicians and DJs, who hail it as an unsurpassed Afro/electronic milestone.
The album was recorded in 1983 and results from a studio encounter between experimental electronic music composers CY1, Congolese musician/vocalist Bony Bikaye, and French composer Hector Zazou, with involvement by sound engineer Gilles Martin, Marc Hollander (Aksak Maboul) and Vincent Kenis (the future creator/producer of the Congotronics series).
This reissue will include a booklet with new contributions by the participants, and previously-unreleased bonuses (available via a digital download code).
