Le Label Noir Vol.1 – Various Artists.
Very rarely does a compilation include so many genre-defining artists. LeLabelNoir takes you on a musical journey from 1980 to 1991 in various styles of EBM, electro, synth, and dark ambient atmospheres.The sounds are full and rich and straight from the original masters. No remasterings were done, as it is an important point for LeLabelNoir to keep the original sound of the 80’s intact. The artwork truly compliments the sounds you are about to experience and proves CDs are indeed for collectors too!
LeLabelNoir is a small french label specialized in compilations featuring classics and rare tracks from the 80’s. Many tracks are making their debut on CD for the very first time.
Highly- recommended! Very excited to review the next two installments in this beautiful trilogy. Vol 2 should be ready in the fall or winter of 2011.
