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 â€œLiving on Videoâ€ 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 â€œLiving on Videoâ€™sâ€ 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: â€œall the record companies were mostly into selling a record fast and not developing an actâ€¦ I got out of the music business altogether for about ten years.â€ Languirand continued to cerate pieces stemming from the cosmic genre he originated.
