The 6 piece band Turzi ranks among the pioneers regarding neo-psychedelia made in France. Their narcotic, large-scale krautrock sound is definitely closer in spirit to the 1970s German/Italian version – from Can to Ennio Morricone, and of course Goblin – than to the current French club-exports by Ed Banger et al. With his solo project, Turzi Electronic Experience, band leader, Romain Turzi, above all pursues the electronic side of this era, which also produced the industrial and techno pioneers, Kraftwerk, and which he conjures up by means of hypnotic sounds coming from the depths of the analogue keyboard.
The first album of Turzi A
came out in 2007 on Record Makers – home to AIR and Sebastien Tellier – after a six-track LP Made under Authority
was produced by Romain Turzi alone in the kitchen of his Paris apartment and released on the same label in 2005. Romain Turzi also runs a label called Pan European Recording.
