BLAINE L. REININGER / Night Air / TWI 267 CD 
Night Air

We're preparing an expanded 2xCD edition of the classic second album from Tuxedomoon member Blaine L. Reininger, originally issued by Crépuscule in 1984 and now newly remastered from the original analog tapes.

Night Air was recorded in Brussels in 1983, shortly after Reininger left Tuxedomoon, in collaboration with former Sleepers guitarist Michael Belfer. Other guests include Steven Brown and Winston Tong of Tuxedomoon, and Marc Hollander of Aksak Maboul. The final mix was supervised by Gareth Jones, famed for his work with Depeche Mode, Einsturzende Neubauten and Wire. The new bonus disc preserves a previously unreleased live recording from Bologna, Italy, on 19 March 1984.

The deluxe 2xCD set is housed in a 6 panel digipack. Photography by Charles Van Hoorick, with liner notes by Reininger, Michael Belfer and Gilles Martin.

If you pre-order a copy of TWI 267 CD from this site before 30 September 2017 you have the option of purchasing an additional Night Air booklet signed and personalised by Blaine himself. Offer is limited to 100 copies only. Simply purchase using the dedicated Pay Button, and email us with the text of the dedication you require.

Forever

Les Disques du Crepuscule present Forever, a comprehensive double disc anthology by Mikado, the chic French electronic duo best known for their bittersweet singles Par Hasard and Naufrage en Hiver.

Hailing from Paris, Mikado featured singer Pascale Borel and instrumentalist Gregori Czerkinsky.
