Rotorelief present a reissue of Alésia Cosmos's Aeroproducts, originally released in 1985. Includes bonus material. In the '80s, Alésia Cosmos was one of those pioneering groups that invented a handful of things: uprooted electro, pop-shifted, funk. With some synths, rhythm boxes, magnetic tapes, crazy guitars, and hallucinated voices, AC rocked the underground for four years, with two albums, playing live in France and Europe. The dazzling epic of the magic combo has become legendary in the margin of new European music. The first LP, Exclusivo!, was self-produced in 1983 and marks the beginning of the association between Bruno de Chénerilles, Pascal Holtzer, and Marie-Berthe Servier who constituted the hard core of Alésia Cosmos. Forming an underground label, mail order, and radio station, the three musicians were also activists in the musical underground so fertile in the '80s. In 1985, the second album Aeroproducts was published by the Swiss label Hat Hut Records. Recorded, produced, and designed by the group, the object to the three photos captured in the windows of the Musée Zoologique de Strasbourg, was not quite a double-LP, because it contained only three sides of recorded music. In early 2017, the Californian label Dark Entries reissued Exclusivo! Rotorelief engages in a longer process of new production from the second album Aeroproducts. In 2018, the rediscovery at the end of the archives of the group of intact multitrack analog tapes coming directly from the studio sessions used for Aeroproducts allowed a remixing, a new mastering, with some new versions and bonus tracks, produced just before or after the period of activity of Alésia Cosmos. Housed in a DVD-sized digipak; limited, numbered edition of 500.
