"The music of Silicon Soul is familiar to the international fans of the recording 'Who Needs Sleep Tonight' that was recently covered by Bob Sinclair and found its way on compilations of renowned labels like K7! and Compost and can be regarded as one of dance music's all time classics. Officially released in the United States in 1981, the song found its audience in such diverse locales as the new wave dance clubs of New York City and the underground gay discos in country music's capital Nashville, Tennessee. It was not until 1991 that the song became a European dance chart topper and dance club anthem when it was again released (this time coupled with a DJ Hell remix) as catalogue number 1 of the then new record label Disko B. At an imaginary artful point in time and space where Giorgio Moroder and Afrika Bambaataa meet Lena Lovich, Silicon Soul was conceived, Its founding members O.Zone and Jolly III continue today as leaders of a band of silicon-based music machines. Pouti is a hidden milestone from the New York of the '8Os which now finally can be discovered. The polyrhythmic electronic music embedding prolific song-writing and twisted vocals long before techno or electronica was established. This is a so-far-unreleased pearl coming from the vivid New York Underground scene of the early '80s."
