40 AÑOS NOS ILUMINAN VOLUME 1 is a special edition release celebrating the 40th anniversary of legendary Spanish electronic pioneers Esplendor Geométrico. This is NOT a “best” of or “collection” but an all NEW album!
In 40 years, E.G. have left a discography of 23 albums, as well as singles, contributions to compilations, and cassettes published in different countries (Spain,Germany, Japan, USA, France…). They have collaborated with other artists like Francisco López (Biomechanica,with Arturo Lanz), Hijokaidan (E.G.Kaidan), Maurizio Bianchi (with Saverio Evangelista)… They have performed in more than 100 shows in Spain, France, Italy, Portugal, Germany, Japan, USA, UK, Russia, Lithuania, Poland, Sweden, Belgium, Switzerland, Holland, Denmark, Chile,…
40 Años Nos Iluminan is not just another EG album, as they have reinvented themselves by taking inspiration from their own long career since 1980. The new tracks included in “40 años…” offer better sound and compositions full of details, sometimes subtle, opening a new path of exploration that goes beyond the typical current industrial music, loaded with clichés. Here E.G. experiment with noise, recorded voices, striking collages, and their trademark hypnotic rhythms of industrial trance. 40 years… marks a turning and evolution of E.G., which however still sounds like E.G. VOLUME 1 includes the 16 tracks of the vinyl version. Three are versions-reconstructions of old EG tracks by close artists , Atom TM, Most Significant Beat, & Pragma (Clock DVA, TeZ). An essential release of Esplendor Geométrico, the influential industrial music pioneers!
