Noir et Blanc


At last, the 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 was remastered from original analogue tapes. It includes a booklet with new notes by the participants, as well as 5 of the recently-unearthed original demos, which have never been released previously, and 3 original remixes from 1984 which will all be available via a digital download code.

"One of the most innovative LPs of the year...resembles the startling outcome of an imaginary collaboration between DAF and Fela Kuti" - (Melody Maker, UK, '83)

"Fela Kuti-meets-Kraftwerk-on-the-dancefloor" - (International Musician, USA, '86)
