Coldwave combo Casino Shanghai isn't the best known of new wave acts. The Mexican trio was founded in the early '80s and released their debut album, Film, in 1985. The two original tracks on this EP were both recorded around the same time, making them authentic snapshots of a bygone age. "L'Tombeau D'Edgar Poe" is particularly special, with stylish French female vocals riding a low-slung groove and creepy electronics. While "L'Action Minimal" is a little sweeter, touching on glistening synth-pop whilst retaining heavy bottom end pressure, it's no less potent. The package is completed by a remix of 'L'Tombeau D'Edgar Poe" by fellow '80s minimal wave combo In Aeternam Vale. Their rework is decidedly tougher, with dusty synth textures riding a thumping, techno-tempo groove.
