The Droids beamed down to planet Earth in the year 1978. Yves Hayat AKA Droids, was a young label manager at the seminal French disco label Barclay in the seventies. ‘Star Peace’, originally released in 1979, is his concept to the classic sci fi movie ‘Star Wars’ out that year. Featuring the French space synth classic ‘(Do You Have) The Force’, in both parts, this LP goes from strength to strength with spaced out lullaby’s ‘Inner Space’ & Tchough Fou’, before kicking back into the groove with ‘Be Happy’ an assault to the senses with its manic synth lines running riot over heavy funk overtones. The flip kicks off with ‘Shanti Dance’ parts 1 & 2, sleezy robot-funk work outs that are inter-joined to make a 6 minute continually evolving piece of music. The closing eight-and-a-half- minute Renaissance De L’Amour is a tour de force of cinematic synthscapes, bleeps, bloops and world rhythms, before dropping in the drums 6 minutes in to ignite any dancefloor. This is light years ahead of its time.
