François de Roubaix - Piste 23
Belgian excellent label WeMe Records recently released a compilation for its 10th anniversary including their greatest artists : Der Zyklus, Leyland Kirby, DMX Krew, Ceephax, etc. All members of the underground contemporary electronic scene. Among them, one guy that few outside France might know: François de Roubaix. Pioneer of the electronic film music, producer of one of soundtracks and rarities of a very high quality, he is currently being rediscovered by the young french generation, and no doubt that the re-issues of WeMe play a role in that. In this compilation, with a 30 seconds track, De Roubaix, who died at 36 years old in 1975, shows that we are right to consider him as one of the greatest composers of the 20th century.
