More Info:

Vinyl LP pressing. A central figure in Seattle's fading disco scene, radio DJ, producer, engineer, writer and multi-instrumentalist Tony Benton was the driving force behind the Seattle soul-funk sound during the late 70s & 80s. Things would really start of when Tony Benton teamed up with his group to form the avant-boogie group Teleclere who went on to release their first single in 1982 (Fantasy Love / Ultra Groove). That's when Tony started playing all of the other instruments and thus earning him the title 'multi-instrumentalist'. Teleclere was all about creating and performing original music, there was no music scene in Seattle at that time for a black artist or group who played original compositions. Through the success of their independent EP release, Teleclere followed up a year later with their Affection/Defection album which created a serious hype. The album took the scene by storm in 1983 and sounds like a sci-fi space odyssey unfolding on an intergalactic dance floor... a chopped and slapped slice of 80ies electro-funk, sensual soulful serenades, pulses of Innervisions-worthy bass, top of the line vocals and a plethora of vocoder magic.
