Pelican Communications has been appointed to promote the Stylophone portable synthesiser.

It comes as the manufacturers, Dubreq, launch a new Gen X-1 Model in time for Christmas.

“Having grown-up with the Stylophone, it’s great fun to be working on such iconic brand that’s doing a great job of making itself relevant to younger musicians,” said Pelican managing director, Michael Bennett.

The original instrument gained fame when it was used on David Bowie’s Space Oddity. More recently, it was featured on the movie, Baby Driver.

"More and more young musicians are excited by the possibilities that technology offers them to make music. Many of them are looking for affordable and innovative instruments which is one reason behind the re-discovery of the Stylophone and the development of our new Gen X-1,” explained Dubreq’s managing director, John Simpson.
