Album artwork for In Movimento by Surprize

Factory Benelux presents the first CD edition of 'In Movimento', the debut mini-album by Italian ambient funk group Surprize, originally released by Factory Benelux in April 1984. Formed in Bologna in 1980, Surprize issued two singles in Italy ('Nu-Clear Dance' and 'The Secret Lies In Rhythm') before supporting New Order on tour, and joining Factory Benelux in 1983. That same year the sextet travelled to Manchester to record mini-album 'In Movimento' at Revolution Studios, produced by Bernard Sumner of New Order and Donald Johnson of A Certain Ratio. Surprize also played shows with New York hipsters Konk; three members later formed Slava Trudu!!, a conceptual art project produced by Yello. This 2013 remaster also includes all six tracks from their early Italian singles. The CD booklet contains archive images and a short essay by guitarist Luca Patini. Cover art by Igort.
