, 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.
“As Philippe Laurent’s second release on Peripheral Minimal records, Phoenix is a three-track EP that harps back to the producer’s early days as much as it looks forward. Influenced mainly krautrock pioneers Kraftwerk, his wave of electronic is minimal yet bold with retrofuturist themes.” – Norman’s Records
