In 1975 before the release of the first Black Devil Disco Club album, Bernard Fevre released an album called ‘The Strange World Of Bernard Fevre’ and like the first Black Devil album it was so far ahead of it’s time that even now people struggle to believe it was really recorded over 30 years ago.

So crisp and inventive are the electronics, so haunting and eternal the melodies, it is as if this music has always existed. Now Bernard has once again unlocked his magical cabinet and made available new mixes of the original tracks along with previously unheard compositions.

Whether these are new tracks or ones that originate from the same time and space as the original album we don’t know and as ever Bernard is in no hurry to inform us. For him there is only one space-time continuum and where and when individual events occur is of little importance.

If Black Devil is all about creating afro infused disco grooves that impel you to dance, the music of Bernard Fevre is all about transporting you to a place where everything is clearer, sharper. An intense hyper reality, not unlike states glimpsed during those all too fleeting moments of successful drug ingestion and yet so much more powerful and lucid.

Musically there are echoes of all sorts of now familiar styles, from the romanticism of Air to the electro pulse of Busta Rhymes, the lush tones of Drexciya, the wayward warp of Aphex Twin and the delicacy of Kraftwerk.

If this is your first entrance into ‘The Strange World Of Bernard Fevre’ then I wish you well, deep joy awaits you but first a warning: this music really is a strong narcotic and should never be listened to whilst operating heavy machinery.
