  • The Units get remixed for Connections image
  • San Francisco synthpunk band The Units will be the focus of an exhaustive remix project to be released this July. The cult group were one of the first American bands to take up synthesisers in place of guitars in the late 1970s, and they are credited with creating the synthpunk genre. Band founder Scott Ryser instigated the remix project alongside Opilec Music's Gianluca Pandullo, commissioning remixes of The Units' singles, tracks taken from their LP Digital Stimulation and other hard-to-find gems and demos. Cosmic disco pioneer Daniele Baldelli caught on to The Units via his DJ sets in the '70s and '80s, and he here remixes the group's "Contemporary Emotions" with Marco Dionigi. Joining them for the 40-track CD and digital package are fellow Italo enthusiasts Todd Terje and In Flagranti, plus house producers Chris Carrier and Losoul. Tracklist CD 1 1.
