Grand Prix – Mach 1 [Savoir Faire]
Reissue for this super-rare space funk album from 1983, one of the holy grails of the Cosmic scene. Extremely expensive and hard-to-find in the original.
“Grand Prix’s Mach 1 is widely regarded as one of the holy grails of the cosmic disco scene, with a Discogs price to match its ultra rare status. This reissue then can only be described as welcome, allowing contemporary ears a chance to soak in the innovative early 80s electronic disco pulse created by legendary French producers Jean-Pierre Massiera and Bernard Torelli. Anyone who considers themselves a head on Italo disco matters will know and immediately recognise tracks such as the classic “Challenger” – all dizzying synth lines, thick funked out bass and oddball vocals – and the supreme electro boogie badness of “Cruisin”.”
