Space sounds and Ital dance origins ahoy!
To demystify a myth is cool! So here goes.
In 2004 Aphex Twins Rephlex released an album by Black Devil called Disco Club, a re-issue of a long lost supposedly italo-disco classic from 1978. Given its absurdly modern sound many doubted its authenticity, some even suggesting that it was a collaboration between Richard James and Luke Vibert.
The Real Story is stranger still. Although credited to Joachim Sherylee and Junior Claristidge with executive production by Jacky Giordano,(who were library writers apparently)the album is actually the work of obscure French producer Bernard Fevre known only for his incredibly rare electronic masterpiece The Strange World of Bernard Fevre and the even rarer Earthmessage, as sampled by the Chemical Brothers on Got Glint? For Their Surrender album.
here is a link to a Bernard Fevre collection.
