Limited 180gm colored vinyl LP pressing. Medical Records is elated to reissue a very special vinyl collection consisting of a hand-picked selection of vocoder and synthesizer tracks by the one and only Zeus B. Held. Zeus is a well-known and acclaimed German musician and producer also made famous for producing Gina X Performance. Zeus first began his musical career in the mid 1970's with the German prog rock group Birth Control. His musical influences range from Rick Wakeman and Keith Emerson to Kraftwerk and Steve Reich. Zeus also was involved in a very diverse roster of collaborations with such important artists as Guru Guru, members of Can as well as French space rock groups (Les Rockets and Visitors). The tracks that make up this compilation were selected from his solo records. Ranging from straight out cosmic disco to propulsive proggy funk to the unclassifiable, this collection is a perfect representation of his solo work. Standout tracks include the cosmic burner "Held It", the total vocoder/space jam "Musik, Music, Musique" and the amazing interpretation of Beatle's "Drive My Car" complete with vocal by Gina Kikoine herself (Gina X). This collection will appeal to fans of the synth/vocoder work and unmistakable razor sharp production of Gina X Performance as well as fans of left-field synth heavy prog and disco (a more rock based Moroder if you will). Specially remastered for this vinyl reissue.
