DESTINATION SPACE

Jean-Jacques Perrey is a legendary pioneer in electronic music, and “Destination Space” is his 22nd album in his long career of many classic Moog and analog influenced albums. He has been sampled or celebrated from everyone from Ice T, Dr. Dre, Fatboy Slim, The Beastie Boys, Smashmouth, Negativland, They Might Be Giants to The Beatles to name a few.

Perrey's music partner is arranger and composer Dana Countryman. The CD was recorded in Countryman’s studio in Seattle and blazes new musical territory, this time adding rock and spy themes to their happy-go-lucky space age science fiction tunes. They even get funky with a Moog-ed out dance tune and first single, "Funky Little Spacegirl."

"Beyond The Milky Way" is Perrey and Countryman's first song written with lyrics. Always aiming to surprise, the musical duo used computers to synthesize and create artificial voices for the song. The effect becomes an eerie version of "The Carpenters Meet ELO in Outer Space."

“Over the last 50 years of the 20th Century, the world has been in such turmoil. Today, more than ever, Mankind continues to face so many negative influences. So, many years ago, I decided to make it my musical mission composing ‘Happy Music For Smiles and Laughs’ to contribute by bringing more optimism, humor and faith in the future to all my brothers and sisters of this planet” – Jean-Jacques Perrey
