As a solo artist and as a member of the duo
Perrey and Kingsley, Jean-Jacques Perrey
was one of the leading innovators of early
electronic music, and a trailblazer of the
Moog synthesizer. Alongside composers like
Wendy Carlos, Bruce Haack, and frequent
collaborator Gershon Kingsley, Perrey was
among the first to introduce the world to the
synthesizer as a compositional instrument,
via notable tracks such as "Musique de
L'infini", "Gossipo Perpetuo", and
"Baroque Hoedown", famously used as
the theme music to Disneyland's Main Street
Electrical Parade.
Along with many of his contemporaries,
it was inevitable that such an influential
instrumental composer would eventually be
sampled into hip-hop tracks. His 1970 Moog
composition "E.V.A." was especially popular
among producers, making its way into tracks
by Gang Starr, Dr. Octagon, Lord Finesse,
Pete Rock, and innumerable others. To pay
tribute to this prominent composition,
Kay-Dee Records is proud to present this
loving tribute to "E.V.A." on a 7" single,
courtesy of French producer DJ Paikan,
who also played sitar, guitar, kobol synth,
and monopoly synth on the track & Mixed by Kenny Dope !
