After a long process of searching, restoring and a careful remastering, we are pleased to present a very carefully selected collection of hard-to-find tracks from the vanguard Spanish techno scene from the 80s. All the material featured on the Non Plus Ultra 1980-1987, except for the group from Zaragoza Vam Cyborg, has never been officially released before: most of these tracks should be regarded as demos although some bands had the chance to record them on cassette or reel-to-reel and even in a few cases could have had a limited distribution. This has made it possible for us to recover some of these recordings which we believe should not be lost to oblivion.
We present a repertoire of some pioneer groups, which are as unknown as they are interesting, creative, and ahead of their times. After nearly thirty years’ silence they have stood the test of time and still sound as contemporary as they did then.
For the first time they will be released in LP format in a limited edition of 525 copies.
Hand made cover. Gatefold with heavy weight brown board (390 gram). 180 gram vinyl. Includes postcard and compiled dossier with detailed information regarding all the bands featured on the Non Plus Ultra 1980-1987 album.
Limited edition of 100 copies with extra DVD (+4 euros).

Marie Davidson's Un Autre Voyage is my next step down a newly built appreciation for Synthwave. This is music for a dark night drive - shady and foreboding - it raises the hairs, tightens the grip, and invades your space. Christopher Moklebust
