Boomkat Product Review:
**We never thought we’d actually ever see the day this seminal album would get a proper, official reissue on vinyl - but here it is, newly remastered by CGB at D&M and in-print on vinyl for first time in almost two decades. Comes with an instant download of the full album** Liasons Dangereuses' self-titled debut LP is a major cornerstone of modern electronic dance music. Produced by Chrislo Haas and Beate Bartel (aka CH-BB/DAF/Mania-D) and mixed at Conny Plank's studio in 1981, it has cast incalculable influence over successive generations ever since, becoming a staple of New Wave, New Beat, House and Industrial dancefloors. It's largely notorious for spawning the dancefloor blueprint, 'Los Niños Del Parque', a masterpiece of German engineering spiked with the yelps, shrieks and semi-raps of Spaniard, Krishna Goineau, and the mono-monkered Joanna, but also includes a grip of other classics such as the heavily-sampled 'Peut Être… Pas', 'Avant-Après Mars' and 'Mystère Dans Le Brouillard' beloved of heads such as Carl Craig, Torsten Fenslau, Jamal Moss and DAF's Gabi Delgado. Most crucially, it set the template for tensile, minimal, and atonal dance music - one distinguished from dub or disco - which effectively germinated the mould for what we now call techno and industrial dance music. We can't stress its brilliance any more: it's a must have for any electronic music collection and easily one of the most anticipated vinyl reissues of recent years.
