It quickly became a legendary freakshow: its hosts storming the station every Sunday afternoon, usually after a sleepless night and lots of XTC, interviewing prostitutes, musicians, very sick people, beer brewers, other DJs, night crawlers and basically anyone they could get their grubby mitts on.
Aside from the eclectic sounds they played acid house, hip hop, vintage French pop, psychedelic music , their show was also known for its jingles, taking the form of songs that mocked other radio hosts and pastiches of what was hip at the time. All this on-air activity resulted in a mountain of undated cassettes of which this record is a product of.

Miguel lived in the long-standing Villa Delfia squat and played classical acoustic guitar pieces on the street to earn the necessary survival dough, winding down with a sustained assault of endless Moog dreambient at home. Then, a few monthsago, he sent us this mind-bending master of a record he had been working on for years. His essence seems to be etched into these pieces: filmic, dramatic, plastic-classical electronic music that could very well serve as the soundtrack to a documentary about this sweet Argentenian tripper.
Much in the vein of Miaux or Blake Hargreaves, and somewhat like Miguel himself, this is music that sounds like it has always been there. We cannot express how happy we are to be putting this record out! December edition. Stick them where the sun shines!

The chosen work was Principium which is based on the sheets of colour dot stickers that galleries typically use to denote sold artworks. Drawing random lines across these sheets, Colson ended up with small fragments of lines on the stickers which he then reassembled into a new continuous line or a closed shape, and which in turn he thought would make interesting graphic scores. The sticker sheets, with their 8x12 grid resembling a sequencer, immediately appealed to Delacourt.
This paved the way to Principium 1. The latter uses the same layout as the sticker sheets, activated by placing white magnets on its surface to build sequences, mirroring the blank spaces of the missing stickers in the original artwork.
