Global Communication - Transmissions (CD)

Global Communication are the legendary duo of Tom Middelton and Mark Pritchard. They began recording in 1991 and in a short space of time released a huge amount of music collectively and individually, in a broad range of styles, including records under names such as Link, E621, Reload, The Chameleon and Jedi Knights, but it’s the work they made together as Global Communication that has proved to be the most enduring.

This is in no small part down to the formidable reputation of their sole studio album, '76:14', widely considered to be an ambient techno classic, hailed by The Guardian as "an unfathomably beautiful out-of-time masterpiece" and no.11 in Mixmag’s best dance albums of all time.

This new anthology is the most definitive overview of their music to date, every detail has been painstakingly overseen by Tom and Mark from GC, accompanied by in-depth sleevenotes by Ben Cardew and beautifully updated sleeve designs by Mark Gowing.

The third record in this set of releases is 'Transmissions', a special compilation that Mark and Tom have assembled of classic non-album 12” tracks and radical remixes of other artists, something also flipped on it’s head by a brand new cover version by Lone (R&S Records) of the anthemic '5:23' track.

Curated Singes & Remixes highlights that even within the framework of Global Communication, Tom and Mark were music enthusiasts first and foremost and their restless experimentation did not rest on one particular musical genre. As well as the tracks from debut EP, Keongaku, which signposted what was to come with '76:14', there’s also the house classics 'The Way' and 'The Deep' and their stunning reconstructions of tracks by The Grid and Sensorama (Roman Flügel and Jörn Elling Wuttke). On the CD is a previously unheard cassette demo of '7:39' which will be a must-hear for fans of the group.
