Vinyl Fever

Dirty Ali & Funky Farid (known to their parents as Ali and Farid Allalou) have more Aliases then i can count, but seeing as they're all great, there's no reason for complaint. During those golden years of the French Stuff, they released 3 EPs under the Vinyl Fever 'Guise: two on the legendary Vertigo series, and one on the short-lived Discoteque imprint of DJ Gilb'r's (Chateau Flight) Versatile Records. Ali and Farid have been gone from house circles for a while now (I believe the last music they released was in '04 with The Eternals, namely the imagined soundtrack to a movie that doesn't exist, "Astropioneers"). However, a quick check of their MySpace page shows a recent re-styling, and four tracks that i cannot find anywhere, so perhaps they're up to some new things? The tracks are "Space Rider", "Abstract Moonstep", "Soundscape" and "Master of Sound"; if you've got a lead on these, please get in touch.

Anyways, without further adu, I give you: Vinyl Fever!

Yay! ... I never knew that there wasn't movie of Astropioneers.
No wonder I couldn't find it.
