Description

Suction Records is thrilled and honoured to announce the reissue of D’Arcangelo’ s self-titled debut EP for Rephlex, the legendary UK label run by Aphex Twin and Grant Wilson-Claridge from 1991-2013. D’ Arcangelo are the Italian duo of brothers Fabrizio and Marco D’ Arcangelo, active in the underground electronic scene under various aliases since the early ‘ 90s, and still going strong today. Released in 1996, their Rephlex debut “D’ Arcangelo” was one of the first releases to make a firm connection between contemporary IDM/electronix and the sound of ‘ 80s synth pop. The 3 tracks on Side A are ripping, industrial-strength electronix, as fierce, crunchy and menacing anything Aphex Twin himself had released at the time. In sharp contrast, Side B’ s 3 tracks are playful, clean and melodic instrumental synthpop, with clear synthetic references to bands like Depeche Mode and OMD. It was a sound that was certainly not in fashion at the time, and helped the EP stand out in 1996, for that very reason.
