Heatwave is the fifth album by Belgian RIO band Univers Zero. Released in 1986, the album is a continued exploration of the Middle Eastern influences, which first appeared on Uzed. The instrumentation here is more electronic than in their previous works. The album was recorded and mixed by Didier de Roos at Daylight Studio, Brussels. The album is unusual among Univers Zero albums in that drummer/bandleader Daniel Denis did not write the majority of the material

HEATWAVE's CURRENT, what is the original pressing? The US or the UK? . A delectable slice of early-80s smooth soul/funk, and possibly the best Heatwave album. It has some nice electronics and rhythm guitar, and some great harmonies, especially on the last track. My favourite track is probably "Big Guns," another Rod Temperton classic. Makes you wonder how different this genre would have been without him. Great album. Reply Notify me 2 Helpful.

And, although the album as a whole doesn't capture the band's early, and best, intentions, it's clear that Heatwave still had a few hot shots.
