Electronic Soul 1974 -1984
RELEASE DATE:  9th April 2012

If the independently-pressed record made the galaxy of recorded music that much larger, the burgeoning home studio became the black hole from which little escaped. Flowering in the mid-to-late ‘70s, affordable high quality tape recorders, synthesisers, and sample drum machines permitted the aspiring artist to never leave his home, never request the assistance of another human being. In the world of American Black music, name artists such as Sly Stone, Timmy Thomas and Shuggie Otis had experimented with rudimentary electronic soul with a modicum of success, but on record what remains is scant. This collection presents the unheard underground of the self-produced, often solo, electronic soul world of the ‘70s and early 80’s, offering a view into an ocean of sound that is in turn peaceful, bizarre, funky and often humbly ahead of its time.
