The mysteriously named 4M International was a side project of the production team behind short lived Italo group Trilogy ("Not Love", "Black Devil" etc). "Space Operator" is the only record the outfit recorded and is an ultra spacey, pitched down, cosmic anthem based around fellow Italian band Traks' "Drums Power" record, taking the rhythm track and adding a wealth of killer sound FX, synth washes and sinister vocoded voices inviting us to join them in some intergalactic space travel. Released in 1982 on Full Time records off-shoot Good Vibes, "Space Operator" would not sound out of place on DJ Harvey's infamous "Sarcastic" mix, this one's a real bullet for all the Italo, cosmic, esoteric Disco freaks.
"Space Operator" is a real rarity, with used copies often changing hands for collectors prices on-line.
Re-mastered, re-pressed and re-issued on vinyl for the very first time in conjunction with Antibe Music / Full Time records, Italy.
