Didier Marouani

Didier Marouani (born in 1952 in Monaco) is a French composer and musician of Algerian descent. He is one of the pioneers in the Electronic music genre.

Didier started his career as pop singer under the pseudonym ECAMA, which released the hit single "Magic Fly". Later he participated in such well-known bands as Space and Paris-France-Transit. He sold over 12 millions records all over the world.
Throughout the 1980s, Didier Marouani & SPACE gained quite a large popularity in France and many European socialist republics (such as Poland, Czechoslovakia, Romania and Soviet Union).

This is a GREAT blog, my friend. Keep digging for out of print stuff!
Personally, I' like to find more french coldwave and german flexi. I already have many LPs and EPs of those styles, but you can never get enough.

Take care.

The "Temps X" seven inch is such a classic track as is the b-side "Song for You" and as much as I love the "Space" material, I think his solo music is far more cosmic (in the widest sense of the word) and whats more, it has one of the best covers ever...the epitome of classic French prog-disco-electroid madness..what were they putting in the water at that time, the JP Massiera album covers are the same: wonderfully strange and strangely wonderful.
Only just discovered your blog and I have a feeling its a place I may be making one of my virtual homes ;)
