Various Artists - Crammed Global Soundclash 1980-89 Vol. 2 - ElectroWave

Since the early ‘80s, the Crammed label has been exploring new forms of musical fusion, mixing elements of world, rock & electronic music, and often anticipating the musical movements which bloomed during the next two decades. Crammed have now re-issued 12 essential albums from that fertile and exciting period period.

The series consists of 14 releases: a double compilation and 12 artist albums (some of which had never been released on CD, including the long-awaited Honeymoon Killers album and the first Aksak Maboul opus, which laid the foundations of the Crammed aesthetics).
The Crammed Global Soundclash compilation is an introduction to the label's own strange '80s. It features a total of 57 tracks or fragments, by artists from Congo, the UK, Iran, Japan, France, Iraq, Belgium, Norway, Israel, Ethiopia & the USA, and was compiled and mixed by Crammed originator Marc Hollander.
Each of the two volumes explores a slightly different aspect of Crammed's '80s output, as witnessed by the subtitles (World Fusion and ElectroWave). These volumes are being released separately, and are also included in a limited-edition boxed set featuring a bonus CD with four brand-new remixes of '80s tracks, and a 52-page illustrated diary of “the ’80s according to Crammed”.

Reviews

“Staggeringly diverse re-releases from Belgian label ten years ahead of its time” (Uncut, UK) ”Unique and unrivalled” (Le Monde de la Musique, France). “Iconoclastic and visionary... ” (Les Inrockuptibles, France). “Original and visionary” (Update, UK). “Visionary...quasi-prophetic...” (Magic, France). “20 years ahead of its time” (Rolling Stone, France). “To this day, Crammed remains an obscure object of desire” (Coda, France)
