Gina X Performance | Nice Mover + Voyeur

Les Disques du Crepuscule presents a new double disc 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 2xCD set is housed in a 6 panel digipack sleeve with new artwork and a 12 page booklet featuring archive images and essays by Padraig Moore and Princess Julia. The 8 bonus tracks on the CD format include remixes by DJ Hell, Headman, Red Axes, Psychonauts and Zeus B. Held. The double album is also available as a deluxe gatefold double vinyl set (TWI 1249), pressed on green and clear vinyl.
DUE OUT: FEBRUARY 18 2022.
