Motorbass' 'Pansoul' to get 25th anniversary reissue on Ed Banger

Motorbass’ 1996 album ‘Pansoul’ is getting a reissue via Ed Banger to mark its 25th anniversary.

Due out next month, the reissue takes in the album in remastered form, pressed on a double 12″. It will be available in an edition of 1,000, and will be vinyl only.

The only album by Etienne De Crécy and Philippe Cerboneschi as Motorbass, ‘Pansoul’ has come to be known as key to the development of French house and the so-called French Touch sound, with its unique approach to filtering and sampling which significantly influenced Daft Punk in the years that followed its release.

Cerboneschi, otherwise known as Philippe Zdar, went on to form Cassius, working with artists like Phoenix and Beastie Boys, before he passed away in 2019.
