EUROPA was a short-lived synthpop group from Valencia, Spain formed in 1980 by JULIO "NEXUS" PASTOR (synthesizers), ALFONSO AGUADO (vocals, guitar), LINO OVIANO (vocals, drum machine), and JOSE LUIS MACIAS (synthesizers). The quartet championed the use of synthesizers, drum machines and other polyphonic gadgets in a city that was stuck in the throws of progressive rock. They recorded and released their only album 'La Ultima Emocion' in 1981 on cassette, released by DAI (Division Avanzada Independiente) a label interested in bands "capable of building electronic sounds from drum machines, sequencers, synths and effects, rather than conventional instruments like guitars and basses." As part of the Spanish Techno-pop movement of the 1980s, Europa's songs featured arpeggiated synthesizers and upbeat drum machines that flashback to the sound of Vince Clarke's Depeche Mode days. Comparisons could be made to other Spanish Techno-pop bands like Aviador Dro, Vocoder or Metal y Ca but Europa weaved a unique style of driving, energetic rhythms, bouncy keyboards and soaring vocals perfect for dancing or speeding into outer space. Shorty after their debut release the band would switch their name to ULTIMA EMOCION releasing an EP in 1983 and an album in 1984 before breaking up. The original issue of 'La Ultima Emocion' was a single-sided cassette and limited to 500 copies. In other words, this is a welcome vinyl reissue of great, rare '80s music!
