If time was a lost part of Bruno Deodato’s brain and if you could travel back inside it you might find some lost tapes from the first half of the 80s where Lena Muir and Profil Horizontal explored the nether regions of electronic music. Produced somewhere between a basement in Brussels and an attic in the outskirts of Paris, back when tape reel to reels, primitive rhythm boxes and analogue synths still carried a vague promise of the future, this music translated a certain atomic paranoia fueled by the cold war industry. Lo-fi music, abbrasive, high pressure, dense, clipped to the max, like it was intended to punish any woofer that gets between it and the air.

Lena Muir is electronic body music on the verge of collapse: all pounding rhythms and echoes of the city at night while Profile Horizontal sounds like modern architecture exploding in slow motion in a black and white film.
