Atomic Flash De Luxe

Bottom/ "Rocket" is a synthpop song by the English duo Goldfrapp from their fifth studio album, Head First (Mute, 2010). Barry Nicolson from the NME described it as "a sleek, synth-powered ballistic missile that's high on Pat Benatar's hairspray and in possesion [sic] of a chorus so cheesy and ebullient." BBC Music's Ian Wade felt that the song "couldn't be more 80s if it arrived sweaty from a Jane Fonda workout, dressed in neon leg warmers and a fashionably ripped Van Halen t-shirt." Alexis Petridis of The Guardian said that the song "carries the influence of Olivia Newton-John and the Electric Light Orchestra's Xanadu. The kind of euphoric we've-just-won-the-World-Cup synthesizer fanfares that power both Van Halen's "Jump" and PhD's "I Won't Let You Down" abound, there's the occasional hint of Tango in the Night-era Fleetwood Mac, and you're never that far from a conjunction of wobbling electronics and anthemic chorus that recalls Phil Oakey and Giorgio Moroder's "Together in Electric Dreams"."
Top/ Head First received mostly positive reviews, with most critics noting its heavy influence of 1980s music. Heather Phares of Allmusic stated that the duo "explore the über-glossy productions, staccato melodies, and dramatic key shifts that were the hallmarks of anthems that some might not want to admit they liked decades later".

Ticker-Tape Of The Unconscious

The cover of Strange Cargo Hinterland (N-Gram Records, 1995) by English electronic artist William Orbit shows the Enneagram of Personality figure emerging from the waters. Best known for his work on Madonna's album Ray of Light, Orbit also produced a version of Samuel Barber's "Adagio for Strings" featured on his album Pieces in a Modern Style which was a compilation of classical re-workings. Middle/ Risotto (Astralwerks) is the sixth album by British electronica group Fluke, first released in September 1997. Many of the tracks that brought Fluke to a larger audience feature on this album, including Atom Bomb, used on the Wipeout 2097 soundtrack, and Absurd, used in many films/trailers, including Sin City in 2005. The band's conception was influenced by the members interest in the burgeoning acid house music scene and particularly the work of Cabaret Voltaire and Giorgio Moroder. Top/ "The Bell" is a single by musician Mike Oldfield. It features a restructured, shorter version of the finale of section one of Oldfield's Tubular Bells II (Warner Bros., 1992), and features a Master of Ceremonies, who introduces the instruments. The instruments introduced, in order are; grand piano, pipe organ, glockenspiel, bass guitar, vocal chords, "two slightly sampled electric guitars", "the Venetian effect", "digital sound processing" and tubular bells.

V2 Sur Mes Souvenirs

Taxi Girl
were a French New Wave band, adopting the New Romantic aesthetics of the time, such as clashing red and black clothing, synthesizer-led songs, and taking influence from mythology and literature. The group existed between 1978 and 1986, producing 5 mini-LPs, and one full-length album, Seppuku. Their early success is attributed to two singles, "Mannequin" in 1979 and "Cherchez le garçon" in 1980. Their music was said to capture the energy of The Stooges, mixed with the retro-futuristic soundscapes of Kraftwerk. Their most successful album was Seppuku, produced by Jean-Jacques Burnel of The Stranglers. After disagreements about how the band should develop musically, Laurent Sinclair left the group in 1983, to pursue a solo career. Daniel Darc and guitarist Mirwais continued under the Taxi Girl name, releasing singles such as "Paris" and "Aussi belle qu'une balle", until 1986 when they disbanded. Since then, Daniel Darc has released several solo albums under his own name. Mirwais was re-discovered by Madonna in the late 1990s when he submitted a demo to her then-record label Maverick Records. He then produced her albums Music and American Life. In 1999 Mirwais signed to French indie label Naïve Records and released the single "Disco Science", which appeared in the soundtrack for the Guy Ritchie movie Snatch. In August 2000 he released the full-length studio album Production which includes the single "Paradise (Not For Me)" made in collaboration with Madonna. It also includes the two club hits "Disco Science" and "Naive Song". Mirwais also co-produced two tracks on Fischerspooner's second studio album Odyssey, released in 2005. He has recently been working on a project called Y.A.S. with singer and composer Yasmine Hamdan (one half of Lebanon electro-duo Soapkills). Y.A.S.' album Arabology was released in April/May 2009. After remixing "Pop the Glock", Mirwais has become one of the producers of Uffie's upcoming album Sex Dreams and Denim Jeans.
