Dec. 17, 2006 – FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Hollywood, California–December 18, 2006– With more than 22 million albums sold around the world, Enigma is well-known to many despite the mystery that swirls through the ambient and worldly pop / club music created by Michael Cretu. Enigma’s Love Sensuality Devotion – The Remix Collection, to be released December 26 by Virgin/EMI Music Catalog Marketing, presents the best Enigma remixes in one comprehensive CD release. The new collection, compiled and produced by Cretu, complements Enigma’s gold-certified Love Sensuality Devotion greatest hits CD with engaging re-workings of the top hits, including “Sadeness (Part 1)” “Return To Innocence,” and ATB’s irresistible take on “Push The Limits.”
“Good Evening, this is the voice of Enigma. We will take you with us into another world – into the world of Music, Spirit and Meditation. Turn off the light, take a deep breath and let the rhythm be your guiding light.” — Intro from Enigma’s MCMXC A.D. (1990)
Sixteen years ago, a new era of pop music began with these words. It was the announcement of an all-embracing, comprehensive work of art; sounds of ancient origins and voices from diverse cultures combined with rhythms belonging to the contemporary spirits of the dance floor. From all of these seemingly contradictive elements a new sound was created, a new listening adventure, a new idea. It became Enigma.
With its club-spawned single “Sadeness (Part 1)” (#1 Dance, #5 Hot 100, #6 Modern Rock) leading the charge, Enigma’s 1990 debut album MCMXC A.D. invaded charts around the world, peaking at #6 on Billboard’s Top 200. 1994’s The Cross of Changes peaked at #9 in the U.S., fuelled by the stunning single “Return To Innocence” (#2 Modern Rock, #4 Hot 100 and #6 Top 40). 1996’s Enigma 3: Le Roi Est Mort, Vive le Roi!, 2000’s The Screen Behind The Mirror, 2003’s Voyageur, and this year’s A Posteriori followed.
Released by Virgin/EMI in 2001, Enigma’s gold-certified hits collection Love Sensuality Devotion peaked at #29 on Billboard’s Top 200 and has sold more than 700,000 copies in the U.S.
