Rough Trade:

Originally released to much acclaim in 1981 by Rough Trade 'Heartbeat' was the first in a long line of groundbreaking albums by Chris Carter & Cosey Fanni Tutti.

This early example of Chris & Cosey features cut-up sampled voices, Cosey's disto-guitar, Industrial sequences, melodious synths and cinematic sweeps.

The atmosphere of 'Trance' is unremittingly overcast and reassuringly darkside, from the cyber-tribal ritual sequences of 'The Giants Feet' and the immaculate electro sting of 'Impulse' to the opiated Arabesque 'The Gates Of Ancient Cities' maintaining a visceral tang and taste for the "other". Even when they go more poppy, like with Cosey's naif vocals and woozy cornet on 'Secret' or the jaunty gallop of 'Until', they're still ten shades shy of uplifting and pretty much define that feeling of dystopian futurism that so many look for in classic early '80s electro.

This really is one of the most future-thinking, incredibly produced and timeless artefacts from the early 80's cold-synth scene, and comes to you with our highest possible recommendation.
