Gina X Performance | Nice Mover + Voyeur

Les Disques du Crepuscule presents a new double vinyl remaster of two seminal albums by German synth wave pioneers Gina X Performance, whose groundbreaking singles Nice Mover, No G.D.M. and Kaddish remain enduring electroclash staples after four decades of club supremacy. Formed in Cologne in 1978, the core of Gina X Performance composed vocalist Gina Kikoine and producer/ keyboard/ vocoder wizard Zeus B. Held. "I had in mind science fiction-inspired tracks," explains Zeus. "Really cold sounding music, with no blues-ey chords or melodies, no guitar and nothing rocky."
Originally issued on German imprint Crystal 1979, icy, noirish debut album Nice Mover spawned two radical Eurodisco hits, with gender-bending single No G.D.M. becoming a firm favourite at the legendary Blitz Club in London's Soho. At the same time Zeus B. Held also became an in-demand producer, working with John Foxx, Fashion, Rockets and Dead Or Alive.
The third Gina X Performance long player, Voyeur, from 1981, followed a brief spell on EMI and saw the duo return to their experimental, avant-gardist roots, the material by turns seductive, provocative and confrontational. Since then countless electronic artists have acknowledged or betrayed the influence of Gina X Performance, including Depeche Mode, Propaganda, Ladytron and Peaches.
Remastered for vinyl in 2021 by Zeus B. Held and Lars Lafeyette Fassbender, the double album set is housed in a gatefold sleeve with new artwork and pressed on clear and green vinyl. This pressing is limited to 1000 copies only. The inner sleeve features a brand new interview with Zeus. The double album is also available as a deluxe 2xCD set (TWI 1249CD) with bonus remixes by DJ Hell, Headman, Red Axes and Psychonauts.
