Rhino Records are in the midst of a campaign of reissuing the discography of Air, the smooth, loungey French synth-charmers. Premiers Symptomes is, appropriately enough, their debut EP, initially released in 1997 to gather up some earlier singles. Pressed to proper 180g white vinyl and freshly remastered.

8/10 Matt Sanchez Customer review, 9th November 2016
This compilation of the first two EPs by Air really sets the tone of the rest of their career. Known in France as the 'French Touch', the dreamy textures of what sound like quite primitive synths (it could be that some of these tracks were bedroom recorded!) seduce your eardrums and send you back to a slower more whimsical childhood time. Air would refine their sound further to make the more professional sounding 'Moon Safari', but the groundwork is here - 'Les Professionales' went on to be reworked and appeared on their full debut album as 'All I Need'.
