Ultramarine | Every Man And Woman Is A Star

In 1991 electronic duo Ultramarine recorded their landmark laid-back album Every Man And Woman Is A Star, released in this form by Rough Trade in 1992 to great acclaim and eulogised by Simon Reynolds in his book Energy Flash: "All sun-ripened, meandering lassitude and undulant dub-sway tempos, like acid-house suffused with the folky-jazzy ambience of the Canterbury scene."
As well as the sublime single cuts Stella and Saratoga, the album offers a mesh of acoustic textures underpinned by a sometimes dubby, sometimes upfront beat. Itís a lavish mix of light yet infectious rhythms and mellow vibes, recalling lazy afternoons and bright summer seascapes. Largely instrumental, the album also features lyric snatches from Kevin Ayers and Robert Wyatt. "It isnít really techno music," confesses Ian Cooper. "We use the shape and form of dance music but use different acoustic sounds. Itís the sort of stuff which seeps into you." (NME, 6/91). Fully remastered and featuring original Rough Trade artwork.
