Although Javier Segura has been recording music in his studio almost continuously since the 70's, his relevance and recognition as a musician has been limited to experimental music circles.

The fact that he worked outside of the country's spotlight of power kept his name relatively unknown for years.

Only the appreciation of a few collectors and disc jockeys kept the light on. Passat Continu brings you the first ever compilation by the Spanish musician Javier Segura (born 1955), who worked as an isolated cell from his home studio in the Canary Islands.

Working for decades from the underground, Segura build up some brilliant ideas producing dozens of richly textured songs, stretching borders on every corner of the experimental music term.

Using guitars, rhythm boxes, trumpets, synths or simply pedals, Segura managed his own career and produced while published a handful of albums by himself: El ser y el tiempo (1976), No mires atrás (1983), Nostalgia de lo humano (1986), Lamento bereber (1989), El ángel caído vol I, la lluvia azul (2004), Levántate (2005) and El orden y el caos (2006).

He also teamed up with Juan Belda on the noisy and only impro project Arte Moderno (1981-1982), using the Roland TR-808 rhythm box as a main actor for the first time in the post-Franco's Spain era.

El sol desde oriente uses three of that songs and add six more previously unreleased productions from 1980 to 1990, probably his most active and brilliant period of time.

Vinyl comes with insert with previously unseen photos and liner notes by Javier Segura and Passat Continu's curator David G.
