Premiers Symptômes (English: First Symptoms) is the debut EP by French music duo Air. It consists of early singles released between 1995 and 1997. "Les Professionnels" was later used for the basis of Air's 1998 single "All I Need."
This French duo gained inclusion into the late-'90s electronica surge due chiefly to the labels their recordings appeared on, not the actual music they produced. Their sound, a variant of the classic disco sound coaxed into a relaxing Prozac vision of the late '70s, looked back to a variety of phenomena from the period -- synthesizer maestros Tomita, Jean-Michel Jarre, and Vangelis, new wave music of the non-spiky variety, and obscure Italian film soundtracks. Rhino will be releasing reissues on heavyweight vinyl, remastered and with all original artwork.
"... features some of the most gorgeous moments in the duo's discography...Premiers Symptomes offers a half-dozen tracks of beautiful, deliciously downtempo synth-pop...it takes its place right next to Moon Safari as another highlight of French electronica." -John Bush, allmusic.com
