French cult act Trisomie 21 joins Alfa MatrixPosted on 13/09/07
After collaborations with acts like Front 242, Leaether Strip, Anne Clark or yet Mentallo & The Fixer, Belgian label Alfa Matrix announces the signing of another cult electronic band: Trisomie 21. Formed in 1980 by the Lomprez brothers, the French act Trisomie 21 belongs to the legendary pioneers of the cold electronic music movement together with luminaries such as Front 242, Neon Judgement, The Young Gods and so on. Through their rather impressive discography, the French duo managed to design their very own music style often described as cold wave electronic haunted by a dark soul and also characterised by the singer's unique vocal tone coupled with their unmatchable sense for touching deep melodies.
After seven years of silence aside for some scarce compilation appearances, Trisomie 21 surprised everyone by giving a new sign of life through a remix for the French mega pop stars of Indochine in 2003, and by releasing their brand new studio album "Happy Mystery Child" the year after. The band's new album was also released in various remix forms including reworks by artists like David Caretta, The Hacker, Paul Kendall, Millimetric, The Horrorist, Lady B, etc.
Trisomie 21 are currently completing their new studio album for their new label, Alfa Matrix, who will before that, release a special 25th anniversary release that will not only include the "Rendez-vous en France" CD, a best-of live album from their last tour, but also a special vintage unreleased song collection and special T21 fan-goodies, the whole available on various limited editions formats. More news as we get it.
