Light years ahead of it's time, 70's and 80's electronic soul from a talented underworld of producers.

Although American black artists such as Sly Stone, Timmy Thomas, and Shuggie Otis had experimented with electronic soul to mediocum success, these were scant on record. Collected here are sixteen artists dedicated to an incandescent electronic soul  - sometimes bizaare, funky or trippy new wave experiments that let your mind wander.

Inspired by the new technology of the time, using early synthesizers and drum machines giving the tracks a cosmic, intergalatic sound. Incredibly creative stuff!

Often released on private, small pressings this is a wonderful chance to discover this brilliant music!
