CD Review: Trans-X is back with Hi-NRG
Written by admin on June 1, 2012
A master of the avant garde, Pascal Languirand brought his unusual brand of music to the mainstream in 1983 with “Living on Video” two years after writing it. Little did he know it would become a new wave dance classic. Nearly three decades later, Languirand brings his Trans-X project back to life with a new album, Hi-NRG.
After “Living on Video’s” international success, Languirand made the surprising move away from trying to produce hit music. In a recent interview on Revenge of the 80s Radio, he said he was not happy with the attitude of industry leadership: “all the record companies were mostly into selling a record fast and not developing an act… I got out of the music business altogether for about ten years.” Languirand continued to cerate pieces stemming from the cosmic genre he originated.
