Experimental French artist Turzi has announced the details of his sophomore album, B, due out September 24th through the visionary French label Record Makers. B is the follow-up to Turzi’s debut album, A.
 
The emphasis on improvisation that forms the live hallmark of the band was captured on A– continental rock, melded together in frenetic but disciplined fashion with tinges of Ennio Morricone. There are two sides to Turzi- the leader, and his band. Romain Turzi is the leader. Hailing from Versailles, his youth was fueled by experimentation, with hours spent in bedrooms surrounded by synthesizers, and surrounded by violently fierce live shows around Paris.
 
In April 2008 Turzi was personally invited to support Simian Mobile Disco and The Whip on an NME endorsed tour around the UK. A line up blessed with the ability to satisfy hardened rockers as well as casual clubbers.
 
The album’s opening track, “Beijing,” is a gripping introduction. A four minute ride evoking a Sergio Leone Western, as soundtracked hypnotically by Black Sabbath. Behemoth riffs collide here with subtle synth flourishes. “Bombay” builds upon this spirit of movement with ascending guitars, drained of every last drop of emotion, resting upon a swirling bedrock of pulsating drums. Haunting, yet rousing at every turn, this track is drenched in the sweat and energy of the live arena.
 
The backing track to “Baltimore” found its way to Bobby Gillespie (Primal Scream), who agreed to sing vocals on the track, without knowing anything about Turzi at all. His distinct vocal style merges perfectly with the driving psychedelic vibes of the song whilst fusing softly with rebellious Acid House undertones.

    Since Record Makers opened their doors ten years ago, their calling card has been the establishment of partnerships hitherto unseen, moving forward in exciting, creative directions long before they became in vogue.
     
    It all started with AIR’s score for Sofia Coppola’s The Virgin Suicides, the label’s first official release, which they A&Red entirely. AIR have since parted ways with the label, but the legacy and impact of this collaboration endure.
     
    Next came Sébastien Tellier, a maverick talent always keen on collaborating with the crème de la crème. His first album, L’Incroyable Verité, was mixed by close friend Quentin Dupieux (aka Mr. Oizo) in 1999.  A few years later, in need of a percussionist to add finesse to his 2004 Politics track “La Ritournelle”, Tony Allen was the man to step into the breach, long before Damon Albarn enlisted him for The Good, The Bad and The Queen. His latest album, Sexuality, remains the only album produced by Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo outside of Daft Punk / Crydamoure. “Universe” was the only contemporary song to feature on the soundtrack for Daft Punk’s Electroma.
     
    Being massive cinema aficionados, Record Makers were prouder still to release the seminal soundtrack to “Assault on Precinct 13” by John Carpenter in 2003. Messages of thanks flooded in from around the world, as prior to this release, fans were limited to watching bootleg copies on their VCRs.
     
    Kavinsky’s debut, Testarossa Autodrive, also marked the music video directorial debut for Jonas & Francois, who have gone on to work with the likes of Madonna, Kanye West and Justice.  Kavinsky’s latest release, Nightcall features guest vocals from Lovefoxxx, as well as Guy-Manuel, SebastiAn and
    Jackson on production and mixing duties.
     
    Anthony Burrill, the British designer, provided artistic direction for the most recent addition to the Record Makers stable, Acid Washed. His crisp designs, all clean lines and bright colours, playfully convey the glamour and elegance of their music. Impressed by the collaboration, Jenny Packham requested they provide visuals and music for her Spring / Summer show
    at London Fashion Week 2010.
     
    Turzi first came to the attention of Record Makers when he applied for an internship in 2004. He wasn’t hired, but instead was signed as an artist.  His sonic voyage through kraut-rock, electronica and heavy metal has culminated in two albums to date. The latest, B, features guest vocals from Bobby Gillespie and French avant-garde eccentric, Brigitte Fontaine.
     
    Arpanet’s Wireless Internet was another visionary album. Back in 2002, nobody was predicting the impact digital technology would have. Hypnolove’s eponymous debut album Eurolove featured feisty guest vocals from Bitch Lap Lap, who has become rather popular under another name since then (can you guess who it is?). Their new single, mixed by Mickey Moonlight, will see the light of day soon.
     
    Whilst the past ten years have seen close to a century of releases and videos, the recent establishment of a film production company, EYE CANDY, and a sister label for singles and EP’s, Coco&Co., will see this figure rise dramatically in the decade to come.
     
    To celebrate Record Makers 10th Anniversary, the label is giving everyone a party favor of sorts.  In conjunction with French contemporary artists Mrzyk & Moriceau, Record Makers has created a free iPhone App to celebrate 10 years of amazing music. The app consists of a mix-and-match game with all drawings being created by Mrzyk & Moriceau and opening music provided by Sébastien Tellier.  (The two artists also teamed up with Tellier on the stunning video for his song “Look” which you can watch HERE).  There are three winning combinations in the game with various prizes from Record Makers entire catalog.  Also, everyone who enters will be eligible for the grand prize drawing of a trip to Paris for Record Makers 10th Anniversary celebration on 10/10/10.  For more information on the contest and to download the free iPhone App, please click HERE.
     
    Stay tuned for new music, videos and more from Sébastien Tellier, Acid Washed,Turzi and Kavinsky in the coming weeks!
     
    And mark you calendars for Record Makers 10th anniversary birthday concert in Los Angeles on Sept. 30, 2010 @ The El Rey Theater featuring Record Makers’ finest talents, and the label’s first ever art show at the Urban Outfitters Gallery on Sept. 29, featuring work by the amazing artists whose contributions have proved vital to the visual world of Record Makers.
