"The album was recorded over the years 1974-78 and originally released as a 90-minute cassette in 1980 on Industrial Records, the label operated by Carter's band Throbbing Gristle. In 1991, Mute reissued the album on the CD, but there has been no vinyl version of this seminal collection until now. The supreme sonic architect behind Throbbing Gristle, and subsequently Chris & Cosey, CTI and Carter Tutti, Chris Carter is one of electronic music's most important figures, his studio adventurousness matched only by his natural pop nous. His 70s and early-mid 80s explorations of repetitive, trance-inducing synthesizer music eerily prefigured techno, and despite the relatively lo-fi recording techniques of the day, it sounds as pristine and futuristic today as it did back then. The Space Between is a landmark album; Optimo's vinyl edition is a must-have, but be sure to check out the Mute CD as well for the tracks that didn't make the cut. Everyone needs to hear this music, but especially fans of Kraftwerk, Carl Craig, Cabaret Voltaire, Bernard Szajner, Cluster, Oneohtrix Point Never, Belbury Poly and the Minimal Wave sound."
