Phoenix

A 3 track synth pop ep (24m 32s) — released May 19th 2017 on Peripheral Minimal

Peripheral Minimal is proud to present the new 12" by the French electronic pioneer, Philippe Laurent, entitled, 'Phoenix'. This will be Philippe's second release on Peripheral Minimal after the infectious synthetic classic 12", 'Mithra'. Phoenix is a three track E.P. featuring two brand new tracks on the A-Side, 'Phoenix' (featuring Philippe's trademark robotic vocals), and, 'Agapao'. Meanwhile over on the B-Side, we have the 13-minute electronic opus and highly representative of his early work, 'Exposition 4', a never before released track from Philippe's extensive archive, and recorded in 1982.

The E.P. Is representative of Philippe's latest forays into contemporary synth music, but still with a retro futurist edge and influenced partly by German pioneers Kraftwerk / late 70s Kosmische and au courant electro / synthwave acts, fitting into the current enthusiasm for early 80s synth pop and minimal wave.

The E.P. is presented on white vinyl and limited to 300 copies. Mastering by Martin Bowes @ The Cage. Pre-orders are now available!

Hints of classical influences as well as electro influences can be heard. - Minimal Wave Label
