More Info:

Rodion-Ladislau Rosca spent his lifetime creating music that was ambitious, groundbreaking and innovative. He was a pioneering composer, a talented multi-instrumentalist and producer. He pushed musical boundaries to their limits. This he did as a solo artist and with his group Rodion G. A. Despite being popular in their native Romania, Rodion G. A. had to work under an oppressive Communist regime only releasing two tracks that appeared on a compilation album in 1981. Rodion, however, made extensive recordings in his home studio. This new collection of material recorded between 1981 and 2017 is taken from that archive. Rodion died in 2021 aged 67. He has also been described as "the Godfather of Romanian electronic music. " Rodion G. A. 's music has been curated on a number of releases "The Lost Tapes" (2013), "Behind The Curtain (The Lost Album)" (2014) "Delta Space Mission" (2014) and "Rozalia" (2018). This new collection - compiled by Derek Anderson - draws on unreleased material from his personal archive. Some tracks sound like a metallic Foxx-era Ultravox! Others showcase electronic melodic pulsebeats and psychedelic workouts. We also see the first release of 'Acolo Unde E Mister' plus 'Aminitiri' originally released in 1981 on the "Formatii Rock 5" LP compilation and 'Stele Si Lumini' best-known for being performed on Romanian TV on New Years' Eve in 1981. Rodion G. A. 's music has been critically acclaimed in the music press and this new collection will be welcome amongst his international legion of fans.
